Quote of the Day!

"The only true currency in this bankrupt world, is what two people share when they are uncool"

Steven Visible Pictures, Images and Photos

This is one of my all time favorite quotes. I remember the first time I ever saw this movie. It was my 2nd year of college. My roomate IS Penny Lane. There is no ifs, ands, or buts about it. She is her. She got me hooked on this movie and to this day it is one of my favorites.

This quote struck home with me. For me, it is a true fact. The best times I have is when I am society's definition of "uncool" with my friends. Notice how I say "society's definition", since really... what is "uncool"? I never thought of cool and uncool. I thought either someone was interesting or they weren't; in my own opinion. When I was younger, and hell, even still today- I am what society would say is "uncool". I embrace it entirely.
I laugh a little too loud and tend to snort while doing it. My hair is gigantic and gets in everyone's way. I wear too much eye makeup. I dance to the music playing in my head. My jokes originate from Will and Grace, The Golden Girls, or The Nanny. I talk way too fast for some people to comprehend. I fall walking up the stairs. I fall asleep most nights by 10:00. I smile to myself while watching tv.

This quote, is what life is about. Being different. Loving your "uncool" side. No one is that "cookie cutter cool person" who never trips going down stairs. EVERYONE has that "uncool" side. Embrace it. Nurture it. Love it. It's what keeps us unique and interesting.

Take a minute to really think about this quote. Think about the times when you were a little bit uncool. The people out there that think their shit don't stink and they are "cool"... Look again.
