“On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.”
“It’s October 3rd.”
And from that simple exchange, Mean Girls Day was born. The epitome of satire, I daresay the comedy has become a cinematic classic. Its brilliance is endless, crossing generations and genres, tackling just about every social issue known to (wo)man in the wittiest of ways. It taught us the rather useless terms “fetch”, “grool”, and “fugly”. It gave us a mile-long list of one-liners to quote with our friends:
“On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
“You go, Glen Coco!”
“She doesn’t even go here!”
“Boo, you whore!”
“I’m a mouse, duh!”
(…I’ll stop before I inevitably end up transcribing the entire script.)
It introduced us to the lovely Amanda Seyfried, and it showed us that Rachel McAdams is indeed an absolute talent that can pull off any character and every freaking hair colour.
In short, it’s a bloody ingenious piece of work that Ry and I (and the vast majority of the world) adore. So, in honour of Mean Girls Day, I give you the (possibly out of order, sorry) evolution of Cady Heron.

Fetch or fugly? Okay, I’ll stop.
’til next time,
