My favorite song in fourth grade, off the first CD I ever owned. The video though… there are no words. So many questions though.
Like who is this weird stalker in the dope swing chair? Who taught these people how to cook? Did they pick the spaghetti off the floor and put it back in the pot and fucking serve it AND EAT IT? AND THEN THROW IT AT EACH OTHER???
Too many questions.
Of course the morning wouldn’t be complete without a No Doubt song. Thanks, Marissa!
When I was in high school, I used to listen to alternative radio in the mornings, while getting ready. It was all No Doubt, Garbage, Sublime, 311 — you know, 90’s radio. It must have been ‘96 or ‘97 and Gwen Stefani had made a comment about how girls should wait til they are married to to sleep with boys, and the DJ’s were cracking up. One exclaimed “She says this while having sex with her boyfriend Gavin Rossdale!”. Even as a virginal 15 or 16 year old I had to roll my eyes, like “Really Gwen Stefani, they have a point.”

My mom told me if I kept wearing white men’s t-shirts, she’d stop taking me to the mall (for new Roxy Quicksilver and Ocean Pacific tees at Pacific Sunwear, let’s be real). And men’s trousers never looked quite as good on me, as I have a figure more resembling Joan from Mad Men than Gwen Stefani. They were too tight in all the wrong places (hips).
