Lady Theme: Laverne and Shirley

All I’m saying is this is probably one of the best sitcom intros of all time.

But it ALWAYS makes me think of Wayne’s World, which (hear me out!) is a pretty lady-positive movie. I mean, yes, Wayne does treat crazy Lara Flynn Boyle kind of poorly, but the object of his affection (the lovely Tia Carrere) is so fierce.

Something I might as well tell you guys now is that I really, really love Wayne’s World (one and two). “A gun rack? Yeah, right. I don’t even a gun.” It’s classic.

Because Obviously I Wish I Had Zooey Deschanel’s Wardrobe

As you probably know by now, I love the show New Girl. My boyfriend and I watch it together every Tuesday night, although I think we’re watching it for different reasons. I mean, yeah, we both watch it for the laughs, but he (like most dudes) has a little bit of a crush on Zooey D., and I (like most girls) just want to wear all of her outfits.

The coolest thing about her clothes is that they are actually semi-attainable most of the time. I mean, okay, I am not actually going to spend $168 dollars on this dress from Anthropologie, but I did see it up close when I was there last weekend (not buying anything, touching everything and pretending it was mine, thinking about what it would be like if my bedroom was in the giant tent-thing they had set up in the middle of the store). Anyway, if you spend every episode of New Girl whispering, “Ohhhh, I want that dress,” then I have the sites for you!

You’re welcome, ladies. Let’s all buy some clothes we can technically afford but still can’t really afford.

PS- These were shorts the whole time! I really thought this was a skirt!

Merry Christmas!

As I mentioned earlier, Alex and I love to watch Christmas sitcoms on Christmas Eve. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we’ve seen some good ones (Wings, Frasier) and some bad ones (Family Ties, or anything that uses A Christmas Carol’s plot). The crown jewel is the episode of The Fresh Prince where Aunt Viv lets Will decorate their house since it’s his first Christmas in Bel Air, and wouldn’t you know it, he does things a little differently. An episode that’s also pretty great (and that completely defies the “No Christmas Carol” rule) is this Sanford and Son episode. Merry Christmas, guys!
