One of us - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
One of us
We went to the coney island after dancing last night, and Lucy ordered mozzarella sticks. Anne said, "I like mozzarella sticks," and I said "me too". Thus it was that we ordered three plates of mozzarella. Then one person ordered a bowl of chicken lemon rice soup. "Oh I love that, I'll get one too" said another.

When it came to Scott, he didn't know what to order. I explained. "You can have mozzeralla sticks or lemon rice soup. These are your options."

Eventually he forged a different path and went with cheese in other forms -- in bread and on fries. But not before he and I did the One of Us, One of Us chant a few times.

i know very few people these days that 'get' where the 'one of us' chant comes from!! i've been known to drop this obscure referrence on people, just to be met with the strangest looks. ;P (that doesn't stop me, tho...) ;)

hmm...now to go see if i can find this on DVD...

Well - we didn't do anywhere near that much, we just each said "one of us" a couple of times. But I was reminded of the movie (Freaks), and mostly just used this whole entry as an excuse to look up that snippet and post it. (:


Last night was great, glad you came!

There was a reference to that chant on a very early episode of "The Simpsons", I knew that much. :)

As for mozzarella sticks...those things can be artery cloggers, but they are very tasty...

I've never seen this movie, but recognized your reference immediately. I hear it's phenomenal ... I've always wanted to see it.

A friend rented it awhile back, and a bunch of us watched it. It was really neat, yes.

Sorry I didn't say bye! I couldn't find you went I went to leave... and I *did* have to work to day! Great to see you having so much fun!

That's okay, I did the same thing when I left because I wasn't sure if you were still around.

It was great to see you last night!
