Flashback Friday: This is What Dreams are Made of

If you were my friend when I was 18-23, I need to apologize.

When I was looking back through old journals for my bright idea of Flashback Friday, I realized that I used to be (maybe I still am) really, really annoying. But the specific reason I'm apologizing is that when I looked at my journals from this month in 2002 - 2004, I realized that I mentioned Lizzie McGuire, the Olsen Twins, or Lindsay Lohan in NEARLY EVERY ENTRY. I'm not exaggerating. How did anyone put up with me?

Below, May 2003: The Aftermath of The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

it seems that me seeing this dumb movie [Lizzie McGuire] was just not meant to be.

[**Present Daci note: One day I should compile all of my "movie reviews", because I found similar in-depth reviews of Shrek 2, Finding Nemo, The Italian Job, and X-Men 2. I also found an entire entry describing how I was in love with Nightcrawler from X-Men 2, but I'm just going to leave that alone.]

watching ange dance+sonic w/ loud obnoxious boys+watching lizzie for the third time!+dressing like lizzie+not being a spaz like lizzie+realizing that we'll never be lizzie

June 2003: road trip to Texas. We decided that 1) our cowboy hats were awesome, and 2) the Olsen Twins were better than Lizzie McGuire. So naturally, if you were wearing your hat you were an Olsen Twin. If you took it off, you were a Lizzie. Sigh. Really, Daci??

And, bonus! May 17, 2002 I was in California visiting my brother and sister-in-law and I guess I had Lizzie on the brain then, too:

We drove down the 405 like OJ in his white Bronco! And i went to the club where Lizzie McGuire hangs out! OH i saw where the guy who created friends lives. he has a fountain in his front yard. There are so many malls here, WEEEEE!

If you couldn't tell from the title of this post, from now on I'll dig out more treasures from my past journals every Friday. Stay tuned - I just get cooler and cooler.
