9 Reasons Napoleon Dynamite Rocks

Happy Thursday to all! The other night I watched one of my favorite movies of all time: Napoleon Dynamite. Whilst watching this cinematic masterpiece, I thought of several reasons why Napoleon Dynamite rocks.

1. The opening credits. The opening credits consist of the actors’, producer’s, and director’s names being written on different pieces of food and memorabilia related to Napoleon’s high school. This opening sequence is very creative and gives a splendid glimpse into the quirkiness that ensues throughout the rest of the film. Watch it here.

2. The fashion. Napoleon’s classic go-to look consists of a strange graphic t-shirt, some misshapen jeans, and a pair of black snow boots. Deb, another main character, consistently wears a fanny pack (heck yeah!) and a side ponytail. Uncle Rico dresses like he’s from the 70s, and Kip wears polos and white tube socks.

Classic.

Classic.

3. The tots. Napoleon puts tater tots in his pocket and eats them during class. When I was in about 6th grade, and there were tots for lunch, my friends and I put them in our pockets and ate them on the playground.

4. Kip online dated before it was cool. Kip met the love of his life, Lafawnduh, online. They’d chat online for like 2, 3 hours a day, so I guess you could say it was getting pretty serious.

5. Haley Duff. Hilary Duff’s less famous sister played Summer Wheatley. This was the beginning and end of her acting career.

6. The plot doesn’t develop until the movie is ¾ of the way done. Pedro doesn’t decide to run for class president until the movie is almost over, but by then I’ve already become so emotionally invested it doesn’t even matter.

7. The Happy Hands Club. The Happy Hands Club, or sign language club, performs to the Backstreet Boys while wearing sparkly blue dresses. So classic.

8. The dance Napoleon does at the end. This is by far the highlight of the entire film. Napoleon fearlessly shows off his sweet moves to help Pedro seal the deal as class president. Fun Fact: It’s on my bucket list to learn this dance. Sadly I can’t find the real clip of this dance, so just watch this video until 2:15 mark and you’ll be good.

9. So quotable. This movie is more quotable for me than Mean Girls is for the average teenage girl. “Tina you fat lard, come get some dinner!” “Stay home and eat all the flippin chips, Kip!” “Nobody wants a round-house kick to the face while I’m wearing these bad boys. Think again!” “Napoleon, don’t be jealous that I’ve been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know I’m training to be a cage fighter.” SO GOOD.

If you’ve never seen this wondrous film, do yourself a favor and watch it. It’s magical.

Have a rockin’ rest of break, and thanks for reading :)

Stream of Consciousness

Happy Wednesday everyone! I only got about four hours of sleep last night, so my mind is extra strange today. Due to this strangeness, I think we should play a game where I write whatever the heck randomly pops into my head, and you come along for the ride. Let’s begin!

I, along with my friend Britt, keep thinking today is Thursday. My sweater is extremely staticy. My friend Sam just walked in the door. I’m at Starbucks. I am going to go say hello. I’ll be back shortly.

I’m back. Anyway, back to my sweater: I bought it at Value World, which if you don’t know, is the closest thing to Heaven on earth besides Target. It’s a really large thrift store with all kinds of great finds, and the one on 38th street happens to be the largest Thrift Store in Indianapolis. I just saw a kid from my English class walk by. He was wearing a black pea coat. If he were to ever read this, would that be creepy? Not sure. 2423339575_044c637a0c

I actually left there for a period of about six hours due to meetings and dance team practice. Isn’t that strange how the end of a sentence and a break in a line can either represent moving from one thought to another in one instant, or within several hours. CRAZY STUFF! I am eating some Baked Lays right now, and they are pretty tasty. My mom doesn’t like Baked Lays. She also doesn’t like my fanny packs, as I mention in this video. I have a Napoleon Dynamite pen. It actually talks, but the battery ran out, so it has been silenced. That was one of the dumbest thoughts I’ve had all day. I’m sorry I shared that with you. Actually, it probably wasn’t the dumbest thought. Thinking it was the dumbest thought was my dumbest thought.

K byeeeeee!

Have a great rest of the week and thanks for reading :)
