Moments In Pop Culture That Ruined Reality For Me (Rants)

Paula's gonna run, gonna try, gonna ruin my perception of teen romance!

As a tyke playing with my Barbies I would dream of a world far, far away from my tormentors and the confines of my parents' home of a magical place called "adulthood." Oh, adulthood (or even teen years in some cases). It just HAD to be better than the hell hole known as elementary school and junior high where I had little to no friends. (Thank you Marla for being down when no one else was.)

Wanda Sykes Said Mean Things About An Asshole *Yawn* (O RLY?)
