It recently came to light that our own Selena McIntosh has never seen the 1999 cinematic masterpiece that is 10 Things I Hate About You. Obviously, we need to convince her to remedy that.

1. It has Allison Janney. She writes bad erotica and cusses hilariously.

2. It realistically shows a sisterly relationship, complete with horrifying late ’90s fashion.

3. Heath Ledger sings and dances.

4. Julia Stiles also dances, except she’s on a table and wearing the same outfit I went out in every Thursday night my junior year in college.

10. One of my top ten lines from any movie, ever:

I punctuate sentences with Oxford commas, and I punctuate disagreements with changesocks. Proud curmudgeon. Get off my lawn.

    I still remember this movie as being the first romantic comedy after which I admitted it might be nice to some day have a boyfriend. That is, if dating was like in the movie, with paint-balling and making out, and having a guy sing songs in the bleachers. I was 16 or 17, and my friends were astounded and triumphant that they had finally found a chick flick that I didn’t make fun of the whole way through!

    This is one of my absolutely favorite movies of all time. And it’s been way too long since I’ve seen it. *scurries off to Netflix*

      (classism, intersectionality and cultural appropriation in one handy scene!)

    ALL MY GIFS HAVE BEEN LOST ON YOU SELENA!!! Along with why I know so many synonyms for “engorged”, and the difference between “pensive” and “thoughtful”.

    Oh great. Now, instead of the productive afternoon of applying to jobs and writing I had planned, I’m desperately fighting the urge to turn on 10 Things I Hate About You. GAH.

    Maybe I can convince Boyfriend to watch it with dinner tonight.

    Recently found out boyfriend had never seen this movie. Was suddenly enlightened as to why all of my clever references seemed lost on him.
