The Hungry Runner Girl: Stuck in high school.

Stuck in high school.

Billy will never trust me to pick the movie again.  I chose 'Easy A' tonight.

For some reason I really enjoy movies about high school (think Mean Girls, John Tucker Must Die, Clueless and Bring It On).

Why am I entertained by the ridiculous amount of drama and exaggerations about what high school is least mine wasn't!

How long is this going to last, my poor future children....Hey mom what should we watch tonight?  MEAN GIRLS DUH!!!

Maybe it is because I loved high school so much.  Yes, I am one of those people that still hangs out with a lot of her high school friends.

Can you spot the high school me?


I had blonde hair?!?! The sis was in hair school at the time and tried a new hair color on me every week.

To redeem putting Billy through two hours of watching cat fights and teenagers crying we went to our favorite little cheap buffet.  Pizza Pie Cafe.

It was 9:30 by the time we got there and I was hungry.  Salad was amazingsauce.


Plenty of pizza.


This is not a mirage, that is actually cinnamon sugar, hot fudge and frosting on doughy bread.


Food baby to the max.

Check back later for a running post....I have been thinking a lot about this one.

I command you to relax all day, hang out with your family, eat delicious food and stay in your pj's as long as possible (if you do go to church or something just make sure to get right back in your pj's when you get home).


Do you like movies or TV shows based on high school?  Which one is your favorite?

-I am ashamed to say yes.  You'd think I would get enough drama from being a high school teacher but no. Mean Girls.

Have you had different colors of hair?

-Platinum blonde, jet-black, redish tints.....pretty much everything and I got so sick of it now I just do a little box color every now and then but that's it.

Favorite pizza topping?

-JALEPENOS.....had a piece that isn't in the picture that had a wheat crust, pesto sauce, cheese, loads of veggies and JALEPENOS!! Best Ever.

pretty much always been a blondie... have always dreamt aboout going dark, but I always chicken out.

fav pizza topping... olives! yum!

At January 30, 2011 at 9:12 AM , Blogger Sabrina said...

I love Bring It On, Remember the Titans, and Saved By The Bell. Those top the list!

My hair is brown-ish. I have put in highlights: blonde, red, darker brown. Recently I have colored it a dark coffee brown.

Toppings: Pineapple and Jalapenos for sure!

I LOVE high school movies!! And I loved high school too! Maybe that's why we're both amazing teachers :)

I heard Easy A was actually pretty funny. I love a good buffet. (And dream of going to one of the ones in Vegas : X)

I have days when all I want to watch is a high school movie! =D
Looove roasted tomatoes and mushrooms on pizza!

At January 30, 2011 at 9:16 AM , Blogger carol-ann said...

I don't mind watching high school flicks, but personally by the time I got to my senior year I was so ready to move on to college. Moving to a new city away from home was definitly an awesome experience. Plus makes coming home to the family a real treat. :)
and I agree, Sundays are a day to relax, (it's my off day).... but just what do I do is my problem.... I think I need to figure out how to be content doing nothing. haha.

Girl I totes found you in the picture! Haha wait I cannot wait to get out of high school, I want to go to college and live on my own:)

I lurve mean girls and have watched it approx 128374 times and am not sick of it.

Slash shrooms on pizza = deliciousness. Woooo girl we both pigged out on pizza last night! I think our food babies were no coincidence

I've never dyed my hair before, but it does get lighter in the sun. Does it count as dying if I use sun in sometimes :D and during the winter months when the sun is scarce, I occasionally spray a little sun in on before I blow dry.
If I didn't It would look like I had roots growing in bc the rest of my hair is so light from working at the beach for 3 months. (ok end of ramble)

or not: I've thought of trying out darker also, but I'm scared.

Fav pizza toppings: tomatoes, basil, fresh mozz, and roasted red peppers!!

Cheeeeeeeeessseee! I love cheese, haha. And sun-dried tomatoes! And spinach. And pesto. Yum yum!

Highschool movies are my all-time favourite and I'm lucky my boyfriend secretly likes them too... He's actually already seen Easy-A and I haven't yet!!

At January 30, 2011 at 9:26 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I still want to see Easy A!! I don't always like movies about high school, but it's a guilty pleasure every now and then.

I dyed my hair reddish twice in high school, but my hair is so dark it just looked like red highlights.

Favorite pizza topping is probably just cheese - but I like margherita piazz too.

At January 30, 2011 at 9:28 AM , Blogger Stephanie said...

I need to watch more movies I guess. I haven't seen any recent ones! I have dyed my hair so many colors. Blonde phase was ri.dic.u.lous.


At January 30, 2011 at 9:28 AM , Blogger Rachel Marie said...

Varsity Blues, Mean Girls, the first Bring It On, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off are all good ones.

I'm a reddish brown naturally, but its been about 3 years since I had it my own color. I've done the whole color gauntlet as well, and right now I'm True Red (think crayon) with black framing my face. It matches my paintball mask! I love the veggie pizza...any vegetable, throw it on there. And tell him to bring friends!

At January 30, 2011 at 9:29 AM , Blogger Savannah said...

My hair has been every you can think of - even blue.

Favorite pizza - cheese, Chicago-style.

Aww you were even MORE adorable in high school if that's possible! :D

High school dramas are the BEST! Glee and John Tucker never get old!!!!

Oooh I can't wait to read your running post! I wonder what it'll be about...

At January 30, 2011 at 9:31 AM , Blogger Danielle said...

Cheesy high school movies are my favorite! I watched Easy A last weekend and liked it. And I'm for sure a fan of Mean Girls, Clueless, and just about every other one you can thing of.
I'm a pepperoni fan!! And dessert pizza is the way to my heart!
I dyed my hair black about 4 years ago. I'm a pasty red head so I looked like I was trying to be goth, and it went all wrong. I swore I will never EVER color it again.

At January 30, 2011 at 9:35 AM , Blogger Lindsey said...

Mean Girls was actually just on t.v. this week :) You inspired me to get creamies for a couple get togethers we had with friends and they were a big hit. Strawberry and peach are amazing! Plus they were only $2 for a box of 6 :)

At January 30, 2011 at 9:38 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yum! Pizza and a salad--can't get much better than that. . . although a little ice cream would be good too! ;)

I did enjoy Clueless and Bring it On!

I've dyed my hair a dark, chocolate brown and have had highlights. . . nothing too daring or extreme.

At January 30, 2011 at 9:45 AM , Blogger J said...

that pizza looks so good! I could go for some right now for lunch!! I have never died my hair - just lots of "sun-in" one summer and my hair turned super blonde! I am relaxing today and it is glorious!!

At January 30, 2011 at 9:48 AM , Anonymous Dorry said...

Happy Sunday friend! I love the girlie high school movies - Clueless, Mean Girls, etc and also movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off! That's a high school movie, right? :)

I've had just about every shade of blonde and brown and even some red in my hair. It's currently pretty close to it's natural color - light brown.

I love jalapenos on pizza! And veggies like mushrooms & squash and always fresh basil. Yum. Enjoy your Sunday. Excited to read your running post. xo

I LOVE cheese high school movies. Especially ones that involve dancing/cheer/excess drama of any kids and teenage wearwolves. OMG. I'm so mortified that I admited to this.

At January 30, 2011 at 10:14 AM , Blogger Nicole said...

Mushrooms, cheese and pepp are my fave pizza toppings!!

i just love high school movies... but would never relive the drama and experience.. no way hosay....

im amped to read your running post!

happy sunday....

p.s. i ate peanutbutter,chocolate ice cream last night and thought of you!

At January 30, 2011 at 10:21 AM , Blogger Laura said...

Clueless is my all time fave, though I noticed you forgot "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Jawbreaker"... those were two others I watch alllll the time!

My hair has only ever been different shades of dirty blonde and my favorite pizza topping is pineapple!

Annnnnnnnnnd I can't wait for your running post!!

At January 30, 2011 at 10:49 AM , Blogger RunningOnCoffee said...

Is that pineapple on your pizza!? I love any form of pizza w/pineapple on it, don't think my husband loves it as much as I do though. Our pizza place (Right Next Door!) makes this good one with a pesto base then ham and tomatoes, that's a good one too!

I love Mean Girls! Clueless was a good one too.

My hair is sort of a dark blonde. It used to be lighter but has some how darkened as I've gotten older. I have never changed the entire color, but I have had highlights before. It's au natural now. (Actually, right now it's a greasy mess because I haven't showered and I'm about to go for a run, eww).

At January 30, 2011 at 10:50 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I've been every hair color too. Which box color product do you prefer? I've been considering just doing a color lighter via box than spend the cash to have someone do it. I was curious if you have a favorite brand.

Hahahaha that is so funny of that picture. I love it. Hahahahaha blast from the past. Love you girl. Mostly I just want to be you!!!

At January 30, 2011 at 11:03 AM , Blogger Cynthia said...

I like hs movies and mean girls is probably at the top of the list. If it's on tv I like to watch it. So is Bring It On cause I was a cheerelader in hs.

My sister and I used to die our hairs all kinds of colors when we were teens. Once I went to college I left it my natural color and haven't messed with it since.

Fav topics: I love a basic pepperoni pizza :)

At January 30, 2011 at 11:06 AM , Blogger Meg said...

Ohhh I love high school movies. It's ridiculous. I was DYING to see Easy A but never got around to it - I think I need to watch it On Demand or something. My favorites are anything sports related (Remember the Titans), 17 Again, 10 Things I Hate About You, definitely Clueless. Anytime I watch Clueless I'm amazed at how funny it still is! I mean it IS based on Jane Austen's "Emma" so I guess it's not too crazy that it's still great after all these years.

I've had every hair color from platinum blonde to blue to dark dark brown. Right now I'm back to my natural blonde with highlights. My mom would be heartbroken if I colored it again before I get married so I'm hanging in there... but I'm looking forward to when I can go darker again. I miss it. :(

My favorite pizza topping is definitely VEGGIES. As many as will fit on the pizza!!

At January 30, 2011 at 11:15 AM , Blogger Katy said...

I LOVE Easy A! I think it was super cute!

I also get super bored with hair color, and am planning on going blonde when I get home. I've been brunette for way too long now.. Lol.

Have a great day pretty girl!

jalapenos all the way. pinapple with them is amazing!

I have always loved changing my hair color up...I've had pretty much every color you can think of (natural type colors, not crazy neons or anything like that) but dark is my favorite, even though I had light brown hair growing up!

Oh and gimme that dessert pizza, woman! Enjoy your sunday...I will be resting just like you said to!

At January 30, 2011 at 11:34 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I haven't seen Easy A yet, but I love high school movies - Mean Girls and John Tucker Must Die! My sister saw Mean Girls 2 and said it was really bad though. I love hanging out with my high school friends, and I'm really glad we didn't have drama like in all those movies. My hair's always been red, and I love it. Feta is a must on my pizzas!

I loved Easy A!! I'm excited for your running post.

At January 30, 2011 at 11:40 AM , Blogger Nicole said...

Beverly Hills 90210 (the original) and The O.C. top my list of high school shows! I don't think there are any current ones that I watch.

Your hair looks good that color! I've had mine black, which totally washed me out, and lighter which was ok. I decided to stop dyeing my hair all of the time because it's expensive when you have to get it done every month, so I've had my natural color for 3 years now.

I love jalepenos too! I need some spice in my life, or on my food. Jalepenos and pepperoni, simple but good.

At January 30, 2011 at 11:45 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

I love those movies too! John Tucker Must Die is sooo great! Obviously Mean Girls rocks too. I think those shows are funny. Haven't seen Easy A... should I??

I dye my hair because I have soooo many grays (thanks Mom) and I have been blonde, brown and red. I think dark blonde/light brown looks the best on me and I have a hair appt in Feb, thank goodness!!!!

I'm boring when it comes to pizza. Plain cheese, please.

Um, yes...I watch movies like that all the time. I used to be obsessed with the Olsen twins TV shows and movies (too bad those don't come on TV anymore!)

My color has been blonde most of my life...but I did dye it dark one time...biggest mistake of my life!

Fave pizza topping...I'm gonna be boring and say pepperoni!

I change my hair color all the time and all over the place. What can I say? I get bored with the same color. My favorite is bright red, but it's hard to keep up so it's only for special occasions.

I haven't seen Easy A yet, but i hear it's super funny. I think i'll have to rent it!

Favorite pizza topping: red peppers & black olives!

At January 30, 2011 at 12:42 PM , Blogger Rose said...

In high school I dyed my hair blue. It faded to green. I dyed it brown, but it turned out kelpy, because of the green. Then I dyed it black, and it was so fried it would break instead of bend, so I shaved it all off. Oh, high school.

At January 30, 2011 at 12:47 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I love high school movies too - Easy A was really cute. Clueless is also a classic. And Gossip Girl when they were in high school.

Love mixing as many veggies as possible onto a pizza, but have to agree that jalapenos are NOMS.

I'm going to go relax now because you told me to

At January 30, 2011 at 12:48 PM , Blogger EBURNS said...

Clueless and Ferris Bueller are my favs.

Never had color, but swore I would do it before I would see even 1 grey hair.

Pizza: black olives, sorry I know how olives gross you out!

thanks for telling me to put my pjs back on, I just did. :)

Love high school movies. There is just something about the catty drama that intrigues me.

I am horrible with hair color. Once it started, it has been changing constantly. An original dirty blonde turned to blonde, then platinum blonde (horrid mistake), then back to brown, and down I am a deep brunette. I like switching it up for the hubby. Keeps things suspenseful :)

Immediately after church on Sundays, I put pjs on, and have the most lazy day ever.

At January 30, 2011 at 1:05 PM , Blogger Stephanie Rigg said...

i am following your command. Got back in my pj's after church and I'm laying here reading blogs and eating peanut m&ms. AMAZING.

I'm totally with you on the high school drama movies. so good!

As for hair color, my natural hair color is dark brown. I have dyed it since junior high and so now i feel like blonde is my natural color.

Favorite pizza: bbq chicken pizza at CPK.

i love your blog and how many other people love it too. you are fabulous!

At January 30, 2011 at 1:11 PM , Blogger Pam said...

I usually DESPISE high school movies, but I watched Easy A last week and thought it was really good!

I have had I think every hair color except black. My stylists have always loved me because I'm game for anything.

Favorite pizza topping is anything that can be grown in a garden. LOVE me some peppers and onions and mushrooms and black olives and tomatoes and... well you get the picture!

In some weird pathetic way there is something about the drama of HS movies that make me feel like I'm all grown up and have my head on straight...that probably doesn't say much about my level of maturity?!

The broc, chix, bbq pizza is probably my fav - especially if pineapple gets tossed in there toO!

Bahaha. I also look extremely different than high school. totally okay with it though. All my favorite movies are high school drama movies ha.

My housemates are creating high drama at the moment though so I don't really need to rent a movie-I get a dose of it all day everyday.

I LOVE highschool movies! Clueless was one of my favs.
That food looks T to the 'asty!! I LOVE me some buffet. Eat as much of whatever you want! My dad actually goes at lunch time, pays, eats, reads his book for an hour or two, and then eats some more. He's ALL about getting his money's worth =)
You were so pretty in highschool! same as now =)
I have only dyed my hair a few times in highschool (IONS ago) and and after. I didnt get to crazy, just added a little red. I am very low maintence though and didnt want to have to deal with 'keeping it up', so I let it fade out.
Fav pizza topping? Hmmm, probably pineapple, but I havent had a pizza with pineapple on it in AGES, all because my littles dont like it. Hopefully I can indulge in 17 years when they are all out of the house =)
did I ever tell you that you are my FAVORITE blog to read? And I read a lot of blogs =)
Have a great Sunday!!

I loved Mean Girls! Great movie, Lindsay Lohan at her best. And I didn't color my hair in high school, but I did cut it alot. I actually used to have a mohawk, totally shaved bald on the sides and long everywhere else. My girlfriends used to do a upside-down braid where the end of the braid was over my forehead. Yes, strange.

I love pizza and fav toppings are veggie sausage, pineapple, zucchini, and fresh tomatoes!

At January 30, 2011 at 2:26 PM , Blogger megan said...

Easy A was by far my favorite movie of 2010 and I am not ashamed to admit it. I saw it in the theaters 3 times and bought it right when it came out on DVD. Ahh!

At January 30, 2011 at 2:58 PM , Blogger ~Jessica~ said...

Mean Girls is my guilty pleasure...and I'm from the UK, so very little of the High School culture even applies over here. I think it's because I love US culture, bitchiness of High School and all.

I once dyed my hair black...never again, I had to grow it out and looked like a badger with my blonde roots. Then I got impatient and tried to bleach it out, leading to major hair falling out and a bright orange mop. Not recommended.

Pizza topping = plain old (vegan) cheese and tomatoes (marinara sauce). I am a simple creature.

Hope nothing was wrong to stop you running! Great speed workout, even though it wasn't the one you wanted.

I've never died my hair, i'm too lazy to maintain it.

Hmm pizza topping i like basil a lot on pizzas oh and cheese lots and lots of cheese. Magherita pizzas are a perrenial fav.

I LOVE pepperoni pizza. We have the best local pizza place here and go as a treat when we can.

I've had really blond highlights in my hair but lean towards the darker shades now. I usually do a foil with 2 different dark browns thrown in. I'm in desperate need of hair TLC. I usually only squeeze it in 1-2 times a year.

I LOVE this post. I LOVE high school drama movies. My family makes fun of me so I always have to go undercover and say I was watching it for school so I can know what my students are talking about... totally legit! Here in Michigan we have a pizza place called Deluca's and they have the best tuna pizza... So incredibly good!
