“I Know What You Did Last Summer”

Do you? Do you, really? What are you, some kind of stalker? Last summer was awesome. I went overseas, ate some good, cheap food. Did you follow me all the way there too?

I know, this post is two weeks too late! I’ve had a pretty stressful halloween week that I forgot to post this. ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ was released in 1997, staring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillipe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Freddie Prince Jr.

PLOT:

Four smokin’ hot teenagers [best cast ever] are driving towards the beach at night to celebrate their high school graduation. They accidentally hit a man and they believe he is dead. They freak out and decide to throw him down a lake instead of calling the cops or ambulance. However, when the ‘dead man’ was in the water, he latches out and becomes alive! Instead of saving him, they drown him even more so that he is dead.

*I much prefer Ryan Phillippe over Freddie Prince Jr., but Ryan acts like an ass hole in the movie.

After a year has passed, the gang receive a letter that says ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and they go on a hunt to find out who wrote the note. All they know is it’s some person hiding under a fisherman’s hat, and using his fisherman hook to kill everyone.

The first time I watched this (2005) I laughed throughout the whole move. They call this a scary movie? The Ring, now that’s some scary shit. Anyway, I recently watched it again and I don’t know why, I actually got scared. I guess the second time I knew that it wasn’t scary, so I watched it in a relaxed manner. I put myself in their shoes and being chased after a stranger (happens a lot in my dream) is scary as hell. This isn’t a ghost that will just give you a scare, but a person that can cause you tremendous amount of pain.

What I wanted to blog about was the trend it caused at school. Everyone kept saying ‘I know what you did last summer’. I knew it was a movie, but I hadn’t seen it at the time so I just thought “okay”. Four years after the movie was released, I gained an enemy in high school because she believed I turned her friends against her (she actually did that herself but whatever). She wanted to get back at me so she left me an anonymous note that said “I know what you did last summer”.

I knew who it was from and I just thought, “oh god, this is so lame. Are you serious?” It’s like us still quoting from Austin Powers. I was sooo scared. This will only work if I actually did something horrible last summer. Come on now.

I’m sure you all have your “I know what you did last summer” stories of your own.

Calling Doc Martens

Dr. Martens are back, baby!

These shoes were created in 1945 by Doctor Klaus Maertens for comfortable wear. Apparently almost every teenager had a pair in the late 90s. They’re not the prettiest shoes you have ever seen, but in the 90s, people only cared about comfort. Baggy shirts and jeans are comfortable; throw them on. Now that I mention it, I could really use some Doc Martens. I’m wearing leather shoes at the moment and one of my toes is killing me.

I see students wear them as school shoes. Yeah. School shoes were a huge hit in the 90s.

I find these knee high ones much more edgier.

Dr. Martens have released fluoro colours for the new era. I read in some fashion magazine it’s great to wear these with miniskirts. NO thanks. Try wearing them with acid-washed jeans. Vomit. How ’80s would you look, huh? If you haven’t noticed, I don’t like 80s fashion. Especially not the fluoro colours.

Vintage black is the way to go. For females; wear them with your Little Black Dress or other winter dresses to give the feminine look some edge. For males; try not to wear it with too much black as you will look gothic. Wear them with patterned pants and plain shirt. If you think you can’t pull it off, jeans are always a good but safe option.

Here are some of the latest models/celebrities wearing Doc Martens around.

Ross: Joey, nice shoes, man.
Joey: Thanks, man.
Ross: [Long Pause] Ehem. What about mine?
Joey: What about yours?

Beep* Beep* I’m Hungry!

The year is 1997 and Tamagotchis are the new craze! It was created and released in 1996 but I don’t know when it was released in our country.

The Game: You must feed it when it’s hungry. It’s a good idea to play a game with your Tamagotchi pet. There is only one game you can play with it and I still don’t get the purpose. The Tamagotchi waits for you to pick left or right. You press one and sometimes you are right and sometimes you are wrong. Sometimes your Tamagotchi can become ill from lack of care or something. You will need to give it an injection. There is a status section that is the most helpful to check how happy, healthy, and hungry your Tamagotchi is. Whenever it needs you, your Tamagotchi will beep to let you know. Do not neglect it or something bad will happen. You set the time before you begin so your Tamagotchi sleeps when you do.

I really,really, really wanted a Tamagotchi. I never had a real pet when I was in elementary so the thought of an electronic pet is brilliant! Like any other kid that wants a toy, I kept nagging my mom. Everywhere we went I saw one and I didn’t give up.

Then we went overseas and there were so many of those rip-off Tamagotchis. There were toy stands everywhere! I didn’t know the difference between a real one and a rip-off one so I didn’t care.

We arrived at our relatives place and my cousin gave me her small Tamagotchi because she was going to buy the bigger version. My dreams came true! I was the happiest girl in the world.

After two weeks, the Tamagotchi was a pain! They drive you absolutely crazy! Beeep Beep! Beep Beep! Doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, that thing will beep until you do something about it. I can’t recall how many times it has woken me up early in the morning for food or something else. I was getting ready for the group photoshoot for a wedding and I actually stopped the process to feed my Tamagotchi. I actually have a picture of that but I’m not putting that up!

My mother was yelling at me of course for making everybody wait. Didn’t they understand that my Tamagotchi was hungry and it was more important than anything in the world? Nope. I don’t understand either. The worse thing was that it beeped more often than the first week I played with it. I didn’t know understand why.

[Look at how colourful they are. They sure knew how to attrack the kids.]

Finally we came home and I wanted my Tamagotchi to die already! It wouldn’t die! Oh yeah, I found out that it kept beeping because it was fat so it wanted to eat more often than usual. I thought I had to wait until the batteries died for this game to finish. Eventually I found out how to stop it and I did. I felt so guilty.

Tamagotchis are horrible. Don’t buy them.

Yo-Yo Time

If you were a kid growing up in the 90s, you must have gone through the Yo-Yo phase. Now yo-yos weren’t developed in the 90s or anything, in fact, it went all the way back to 1000 BCE, but it was in the 90s that it became so big. Pretty much every child had a yo-yo. If you didn’t have one, there must have been something wrong with you. Everyone was yo-yoing during recess and one time I didn’t have one. It was so boring watching everyone play and do tricks with their yo-yos while I just stood there.

(I wanted to put a picture of my yo-yos but I can’t find them anywhere.)

Yo-yos were so big that The Simpsons even did an episode about it. I haven’t seen that episode in a long, long time. Don’t remember what happened.

The only tricks I can remember at the top of my head was the cradle and the dog walker. For the cradle you use the string to form a triangle around the yo-yo and rock the yo-yo back and forth. Not really a trick, just something cute somebody thought. I saw the dog walker for the first time performed by my P.E. teacher. He brought the yo-yo in and started showing off. The yo-yo would keep jumping up and down his leg as if it were a dog. We all thought it was so cool.

If you had any tricks you thought up the top of your head, be sure to tell!
