Looking Back

I was a weird kid back in the day. Proof of this is in the archived blog posts I posted on Xanga, 90% of  which was written when I was still in high school. Reading them now, I never realized how emo, in love, confused and lame I was back then. Most of it was funny, in how I managed to abuse the thesaurus a lot in order to pass off as looking smart and eloquent. Reading that stuff and reading what I write now, I don’t mind the crudeness of what I do now anymore as long as I actually understand the words I write down. That’s good enough for me.

Anyways, during my brief stint into nostalgia, one question I had that I now raise to all you important people out there: can someone tell me why I would say the phrase ‘You’re so fish!’ a lot? Furthermore, what does ‘fish’ even mean in that context? I really want to know. Reviving old slang that sounds funny is always fun… unless it means something that’s just wrong.

I do not remember you ever saying ‘you’re so fish’ to me… but I am going to assume that it means… ‘you’re so fishy’ and you took off the ‘y’ to make it sound cool? Or perhaps it meant ‘you stink’ because lets face it… fish smells funny when it’s not cooked at least

I googled “you’re so fish” and got a lot of Happy Feet relate sites… so basically, I have no idea why you said that haha I also do not remember you saying it. I hope someone remembers cause I’m really curious now.
