"Derek Zoolander: Or are you here to tell me what a bad eugoogoolizer I am? Matilda: A what?
Derek Zoolander: A eugoogoolizer... one who speaks at funerals.
<Matilda looks at Derek confused>
Derek Zoolander: Or did you think I was too stupid to know what a eugoogooly was?"
Zoolander is such a ridiculous movie that had I not been in high school when it came out, I never would have seen it. But as fate would allow, I was in high school, and I did watch it - more than once. Derek Zoolander's "Blue Steel" face (pictured above) is sort of iconic for my generation, I think, and I will never forget it because it appears in my house every. single. day.

Every time someone pulls out a camera, Madeline is temporarily possessed by the spirit of Derek Zoolander. I was trying to snap a picture of her and I for my friend Megan today, and upon uploading my pictures, this is what I discovered.
ATTEMPT NUMBER FOUR - COUNT 'EM FOUR:
Every single one!
Maybe one day I will do an entire post of thumbnail size photos of Madeline doing this face. I have dozens of them.
