Mean Girls

I was watching the movie Mean Girls with my girls and they had a million questions about the mean girls and their behaviour.  To be honest, the budgie voiced, machine gun paced questions totally ruined the movie for me. I was looking forward to watching a movie written and directed by the awesome Tina Fey, watching Tim Meadows in anything and seeing Lindsay Lohan for more than just a joke line in a stand up act.

Some things I realised during this movie are:
1. Lindsay Lohan didn't totally suck;
2. Tim Meadows can make me laugh by just looking at his face;
3. My 6yo doesn't need to take a breath when she is talking non-stop; and
4. that mean girls still exist in the grown up world. They haven't changed, they still try to drag others down, alienate people, lie, manipulate and bully but take away their youth, their beauty and you are just left with a nasty older person.

Ahh, the life lessons we can learn from Teen TV.  I am thinking Heathers, The Lost Boys or The Breakfast Club for the next lesson.


  1. Thanks for this post. I have had some troubles with some mother's at the school. I am not looking forward to returning to school. Some people at just b%^!@. I think most of the time it's because they are jealous or insecure. I always just try to avoid Mean girls, they never offer anything positive to your life and everyone will realise that eventually.
