After a conversation about the early '90s in history class, I thought it would be best to express myself through fashion. I wore my typical grunge outfit (baggy gray shirt, black zip-up hoodie, red plaid miniskirt, gray tights, Doc Martens) as a joke, to emulate what the teacher must've looked like circa 1993. My interpretation was fairly accurate and she ended up comparing me to Janeane Garofalo (Vickie Miner) in the movie Reality Bites. I have regrettably never seen this movie before and looked to the internet to find out exactly what this "compliment" meant. My current understanding is that the movie is a pop-culture/grunge faux-documentary and besides wearing a blue polka-dot nurse dress and having a similar hairdo to mine, Vickie is a promiscuous character. Since I can't think of anything farther from the truth, perhaps Ms. Villamere was mistaking me for Janeane herself? That must be the case, because Garofalo is a self-deprecating, feminist and outspoken comedian. That kind of sounds like me, except I'm not that funny. I think some movie-watching is in order. Let's hope her outfits aren't embarrassingly bad.
