I'm officially swimming in My So-Called Life. We've been making our way through the box set steadily, pausing only for quick questions, mostly posed to me by the BF. He's eight years older, and the show is closer chronologically to my HS experience than his. Also, he's a boy. Boys sometimes don't get it.
"Were you mean like that in High School?"
Yes, but I told him no.
Did you hate your mom?
Were girls mean like that always?
Did you pass notes?
Yes, but it made me deathly afraid. I was a goody two shoes.
Did you wear plaid shorts too?
Yes, but without the tights.
Ugh, I am cringing here, but yes. I wore shorts like that. In public. I also wore my (6'3" tall) father's hand-me-down oxford shirts, thinking them stylish. God, I was clueless.
Anyhow, in honor of my (very badly dressed) high school self, here's some plaid jewelry:
Tartan Plaid Bangles, $6.99
M. Haskell Plaid Hoop Earrings, $15
Rachel Abroms Plaid Ribbon Necklace, $162
