"I hope he doesn't break his pelvis."
--Girl smushed up next to us at BFD 7, talking about either her friend moshing, or Scott Weiland (of STP) dancing.

--A chattery teenage girl, on what it would be like to have a computer help you pick out matching lipgloss.
Clueless came out just four years ago. Four! That's not exactly pre-modern, is it?
