Bad Hair Day, December 8th (or Take It In the Ear Day)

Bad Hair Day

Do you ever wonder how the term "bad hair day" came to describe one of those days when nothing seems to be go as planned. According to The Phrase Finder the term "bad hair day" came into common usage after the 1992 movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Buffy (Kristy Swanson) to the one-armed vampire Amilyn (Paul Reubens):
"I'm fine but you're obviously having a bad hair day.".
Apparently, the term had been used before, but it was not "cool" to say until after a blond girl named Buffy said it, and now we all say it.

Take It In the Ear Day (see previous post).

If you are not having a Bad Hair Day, you can work on figuring out how to celebrate Take It In the Ear Day. I would not recommend celebrating with at wet willy. Wet willies are gross.

A classic movie. Another one of my favorite lines from it was "Get OUT of my facial..."

Unfortunately, this one didn't make it into pop culture.

That was a very good line... I should remember to quote it more often.
