Do You Know What Day It Is?

No, it’s not October 3rd.  

It’s the next best thing –April 30, aka the 10 year anniversary of the premier of Mean Girls.

It’s not everyday that a movie speaks to entire generation, but that’s exactly what Mean Girls has managed to do.  Ten years later, I still find myself texting “Boo, you whore,” when a friend can’t make plans, reminding myself “Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it,” and subconsciously reaching for pink on Wednesdays.  If for some reason you ever submitted to the camp that “women just aren’t funny,” #mmbye in the words of Sylvie Sherman, because Tina Fey is everything.
