Paris is a thief

So I was watching Pretty In Pink this morning when I was on the treadmill with the baby. On the treadmill with the baby because God forbid he just fall asleep in his swing BESIDE the treadmill. So, as I was lugging a 17lb. baby, I came across a startling discovery.

"That's hot" or "It's hot,"Paris Hilton's signature phrases, were stolen.

Molly Ringwald beat her to it. Remember when Blane comes into Trax to pick up Andie and he asks her opinion about a Steve Lawrence album.

Her response..."It's hot. White hot." Same pouty lips, same dropped jaw on the last syllable.

I'm stunned. She was 5 years old when this movie came out. At this moment, Abnormal is thinking that the fact that I am stunned is stunning itself because it is Paris Hilton after all.

Poor Molly Ringwald.

Too funny... it's amazing what you catch when you watch the old favs now... pretty in pink, sixteen candles, the breakfast club, the outsiders. I could watch them all a million times!

I have watched them all a million times, and I would totally love to spend the day watching them again!!

We all knew there wasn't anything original about Paris!

Kids these days think they have seen it all and started it all - as if there wasn't a whole other generation that had stick-straight hair and low-waisted flared jeans before now. (When you were a little kid during the 70's, you tend to recall a bit more of the details than those who were living the free-drugs/love lifestyle back then!)

Molly Ringwald was always ahead of the game, which is why we just love to hate her....that and the fact all the guys wanted her - uptight yet-still-cool chick with red hair - who can compete with that?

LOL... I agree with Amy - we knew there was nothing original about Paris!

I LOVED Molly Ringwald back in the day! "Pretty in Pink", "The Breakfast Club", "16 Candles"!!!

All classics! :)

Paris Hilton? Yuck.....

Kristen, this observation can be characterized in one short - yet accurate - description:

It's hot.

Martin said...

I have almost zero knowledge of Paris Hilton (what I do have is derived from your blog!) but I can't imagine the words "it's hot" as a catchphrase...

amy said...

Kristen, a fellow blogger was blogging about babies and blogging about babies... this is really too funny: http://alleyesonjenny.com/2005/08/babies-r-modern/

I can see that Paris would be watching "Pretty in Pink" when she was 5. I think she probably did whatever she wanted to do. That's why she made that "film" when she was what, like 16-17?

Kristen said...

Jaime--it's so wrong to watch them over and over but I just can't help it

Amy--why I thought there would be originality from Paris is beyond me

Cath--nothing new under the sun, huh?

Momma--but theft from Molly Ringwald seems really over the top, doesn't it?

Marelle--it was much more fun to discuss our insanity, don't you think?

The Blogger Formerly Known As Christina--16 Candles was too depressing for me. Birthdays in my house growing up were bigger than Christmas. It was mortifying for me to think someone could ever forget one.

Stacy--I once had to choose between writing a paper on TBC or Dead Poet's Society. I chose DPS because I couldn't even contemplate analyzing TBC. LOL

Ab--So I'm a little slow catching up with the crowd.

Martin--I am so overwhelmingly depressed that any information you have received regarding Paris has been from my blog. She deserves no conversation whatsoever.

Amy--I'll go check it out

HG--isn't it the worst?

MB--do you think she was doing a line of coke while she was watching at age 5??
