I love that this has become a national story! I am part of a Pizza Club and we basically just try to eat all the pizza in Dallas and this was our favorite (of like 25 places we've tried! Now is Dallas known as a pizza mecca, not so much, but we work with what we've got.) Their crust is so so good, dipping it in ranch would be pretty insane (although I am not opposed to dipping less amazing crusts in ranch, but preferably house made ranch, not Hidden Valley!)
I was 15 when the movie came and have a very similar experience living in Dallas, didn't listen to Tejano and really only was conscious of her after her murder when the songs were everywhere and there were lots of people wearing her t-shirts and posters being sold on street corners all over (thought I was very hip and "alternative" but didn't get into Nirvana until after Kurt Cobain died, also!) But I saw the movie and became obsessed, I think I saw it a few times in the theater. I don't know if it was "good" per se but my friends and I loved it, the performances and early 90's outfits and J. Lo was just everything back then. "Anything for Selenas" always and forever!
@Jaya If I were Spanish, a good cook, had an entrepreneurial spirit, and lived in a big enough city that it would be popular, I would start one!
@guenna FYI Texas is not a monolith in this department- I grew up in Dallas county, happily eating Samoas and Tagalongs and then moved to Tarrant county next door and suddenly they were Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel deLites and went basically insane with rage. It's quite silly the things we can get so irrationally attached to.
@fallopian princess Indeed, I'm in the same boat. It's NBD. Now, if someone used to be able to get off very easily, started using a vibe and then couldn't get off the way they used to, I could see that being annoying. But I never could get there until I got something heavy duty and have even tried to dial it back to less intense vibes, but just for variety's sake.
Yeah, it's just 90's clothes, but I guess instead of embracing the wildest aspects of a "vintage" style- like with bright mod 60's prints or something- the 90's is just coming back in a much weirder, subtler way. The woman in the side strip sweat pants, white t-shirt, french manicure, and high heeled tennis shoes actually made me angry. her normcore was coming at me all wrong.
It also seems "shitty baseball cap" is a vital part of this look.
@zeytin The return of the mom jeans specifically an odd look to come back, it really makes everyone have the longest butt ever.
@Lily Rowan Normaling!
Not only am I obnoxiously invested in the gluten debates but I also found this very funny! My husband was kind of diagnosed as gluten intolerant and not eating gluten seems to help his belly problems (not just GRAIN BRAIN but also WHEAT BELLY) he still seems to get sick randomly even when he's really careful. I have some my own- Frasier Crane Brain- you can eat whatever you want but you will be a pompous windbag, David Wain Brain- you can eat whatever you want but you must be eating it with a cast member of Wet Hot American Summer, Raising Cane Brain - you can eat whatever you want from their delicious menu of chicken fingers and Texas Toast but you'll also become a rable rouser who is literally always "rasining cane" and everyone will tire of you.
@Meow I don't think it's elitist to be bummed about taking a job to pay the bills that isn't what you really want to do. It sounds like she was depressed and was dressing sloppy but that the earnings made her feel a little better about herself. I know when I worked retail in between working jobs more in line with my goals, it made me fucking depressed, but of course, there are people who thrive in retail and restaurants. That was not her situation.
