I want to kick azzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The other night I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I loved it. It was just damn fun.

And I have a special place in my heart (and my pocket) for Michael Cera. I love him in just about everything he's ever been in, although he'll always be George Michael to me. ("What a fun sexy time for you!")

But what really got me was how KICK-ASS these girls are!! WHERE WAS RAMONA FLOWERS WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL???? I needed a role model like her, not whiny, mousy Molly Ringwald or bitchy, coked-up Demi Moore.

Even the character of Knives- who had the potential to and was on a screechy high-speed route to be a first-class whiny wet-towel turned out to be a bad-ass! And the chick drummer who stared down the other (little) chick drummer!

My little feminist heart just about exploded.

I haven't seen Kick-Ass yet, but I'm already in love with the foul-mouthed awesome Hit Girl. 

And it all leads me to two conclusions:

1.  Girls today have it much better in movies than in my day,


2.  I need me some Easter-egg colored hair.


  1. Michael Cera= my HERO and Kerry YESYESYES! Do the hair!

  2. You would love gorgeous with easter egg colored hair! Well you are anyways, but with fun colored hair on top of that? I used to have the guts to dye my hair crazy colors. Blue, yellow, crayon red and so on. That was when my hair was blonde and those colors would take.
    Ahh. I've grown to be such a wimp in my old age. Now I'm just letting my hair grow out, gray hairs popping up right and left. Maybe I'll just dye my grays, blue.

  3. You know, I think that's what would happen at this point. I have maybe 6 crazy white hairs at the top of my head that stand STRAIGHT up. They would be bright blue & the rest of my hair muddy. If I didn't work at an old folks' place, I would do it in a minute. I've done every shade blond to red to brown before, but boy howdy, would I love a good purple or green.
    Maybe next time I take a week vacation, I'll manic-panic myself just for funsies ;)
