Instead of Sleep: 10 Things I Hate About You

This series of articles features things I end up doing when I should be sleeping.

The other night I was flicking through the channels to see what was on before I went to sleep. It was 2am and I came across 10 Things I Hate About You starting on the Women’s Network. Now I have seen this movie a few times and to the best of my memory it was a cute and fun movie that happened to star one of my childhood crushes Larisa Oleynik (you can read all about my childhood crushes here).

Upon watching it for the first 5 minutes I remembered “Oh yeah, this movie is hilarious!” The basic premise is that the new kid at a school Cameron (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) falls for a girl named Bianca (played by the aforementioned Larisa Oleynik), but Bianca cannot date unless her older sister Kat (played by Julia Stiles) dates. But here is the catch: Kat hates boys (ew). So Cameron hires a mysterious loner named Patrick (played by the late Heath Ledger) to seduce Kat so Cameron is free to date Bianca…and comedy mayhem ensues!

Needless to say I ended up watching the whole thing…with commercials…until 4am. Anyway, If you haven’t seen this movie I highly recommend it. If you have, hell, watch it again, you won’t be disappointed. And if you are? Well maybe it is time to consult that shrink whose card you’ve had the past 6 months.

here is the scene for some reason I quote all the time and cannot stop laughing at. “That must be Nigel with the brie.” Enjoy.
