I Touch You Once. I Touch You Twice. I Won't Let Go At Any Price.

Darn you, unlined paper!


Not a single person preferred both Christina and Pretty in Pink. And I am definitely in the minority here, as my only Christina/Sixteen Candles buddies are Liz, Sass Attack, Don't Call Me Ma'am, and Sparkling Cipher. Why is Christina better? I will let Sparkling Cipher explain it to you.

"I'm shocked that so few chose Christina. Sure, she got pretty raunchy for a while, but she's always been the better artist. Even as she slutted herself up, I respected that she was just doing her own thing and not trying to present some phony image."

As for Sixteen Candles, were you not in love with Jake Ryan??? I am still in love with Jake Ryan. Guinness Girl wrote a while ago that Jake Ryan is now a carpenter or table maker in New York (I think). But maybe I am just thinking he is a table maker because I want him to make a table for us, and then we will sit on top of the table and make out over a birthday cake.

Oh how did I miss this one? Argh!

Anyway, I would've been in with the crowd on Britney (if I had to choose) and Sixteen Candles.

"She got married!"
"Married?"
"Yeah, married!"

*sigh*

I would have been on the Christina 16 Candles side. Michael Schoeffling (Jake Ryan) is a carpenter in PA. I have a I heart Jake Ryan shirt.

I'm with the crowd...sigh.

Ah, yes, who wasn't in love with Jake.... *swoon*

And thanks for the quote.

I know I must have seen Pretty in Pink, but I can't remember it. And I don't think I've ever seen Sixteen Candles, so I am a loser.

But Christina is soooo much more talented than Britney.

Now you have to update your thingy, -R-. :)

Wait. Libragirl, WHERE in PA is he a carpenter? WHERE? PA is just a few hours from NYC! {swoon} Do you think my husband would mind if we drove out to some random place in PA so I could drool over Jake Ryan in person?

IMDB confirms that Jake Ryan is now a furniture-maker in Pennsylvania. His last movie credit was in 1991 (Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken).

And I agree that Christina has always had more actual talent, but she's also got that annoying habit of trying to hit every note she can (much like Mariah Carey). Just because you can hit a ridiculously out-of-range note does not mean you should. But that's just my opinion, I guess. Oh yeah, and Christina was way sluttier back then. Ew.

i am unoriginal. that makes me sad.

but oh, Jake Ryan. he was ever so dreamy...

Wow. That is an overwhelming majority! I still contend that most are underestimating the amount Brit ALREADY sucked by 2001.

I mean, she wasn't getting married by accident yet, but... CROSSROADS, people. Need I say more?

lizgwiz said...

Yay! I get to be in -r-'s quadrant! I knew I was cool. ;)

Noelle said...

I think we all know now that Christina is the talented one in the bunch, but in 2001, we were blinded by the overwhelming presence of Britney. I have to stand by my decision, although at the time I'm sure I would have told you I think they both sucked.

Stephanie said...

Being the nonconformist that I am, I'm all by myself in the Christina/Pretty in Pink square.

She made her own dress!!! Woo-hoo!!

And her best friend was the Duckman!

And screw the social strata!! YEAH!!

chirky said...

Daaaaaannnngg it. How did I miss this one?

Because you MUST know that I ACTUALLY HAVE OPINIONS ABOUT THE OPTIONS YOU GAVE THIS TIME.

Am sad.

-R- said...

So what are your opinions, Jes?

metalia said...

You know, I DO love me some Christina. She's infinitely more talented, and has made a total 180 in terms of crotch-baring classlessness. But my love for Britney will never die. Never!

My son's name is Jake and his best friend's name is Ryann (she's a girl) and when I take the two of them somwhere, I'm always calling out, "Jake Ryann, Jake Ryann."

I'm a total dork, but I really get a kick out of it.
