Ten on Tuesday: 90s Edition

ALL ABOUT THE 90′s!  Ten on Tuesday is hosted by Chelsea and this week’s questions were provided by her friend, Christine.


1. Which boy band was your favorite and your favorite song?
Jeeeez.  Favourite boy band of the 90s? Probably Hanson.  Stop judging.  My favourite song?  This one, hands down:

2. Your favorite spice girl?
This is a tough one… Ginger Spice?  Yeah.  She was a rebel.

Also, my bff and I had our first dance to Spice Girls’ Two Become One.  We were sooo in love for those 8 hours we dated.  Good times.

3. Did you ever try the orbit drink?
Yes.  Those were horrid.  The syrupy drink with the floating jelly bits in it?  Let’s not get into what drinking that was like.

4. What brand of clothing were you in to?
I had the coolest Guess jeans and an Adidas jacket…. Would get all my singlets at Au Cotton… that’s pretty much all I remember.

5. Did you watch TGIF?
I totally did!

6. What news story in the 90′s do you recall?
I really don’t know… The one that sticks out in my head is when my friend went missing.  It was weird to see the media talk about her and make assumptions.

7. List which you think had the best talent. Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, Brittney Spears, and Christina Aguilera.
Wow… I don’t know.  I think there’s a bit more depth to Mandy Moore’s talent… her music has a little more soul.  If we’re talking sheer vocal talent… Christina?  Man, it feels wrong saying that.

8. Did Marilyn Manson creep you out?
A little bit.  But then I also liked some of his music.

9. Who was your BFF?
I had a few BFFs in the 90s.  Early on it was Rhe and Ashleigh, but by the end of the 90s in was my current BFF.  He’s been my BFF for 16 years now.

10. A picture of you in the 90′s.
I went digging around and couldn’t really find any.  They must be all at my parents’.  Then I came across this one.  It’s probably 1990, but may even ben 1989.  So… close enough?

 

Ten on Tuesday

I know, I know.  I haven’t posted in a while.  Let me try to distract you from that fact with…. SHINY THINGS!  No? Okay.

Well, I haven’t done a Ten on Tuesday in a while, either, and that totally counts as a post.

Ten on Tuesday is hosted by Chelsea and she provided this week’s questions, too.

1. How do you feel about April Fool’s Day?
I think it’s a little ridiculous and a lot mean.

2. Do you like birds?
I have no real feeling towards birds one way or the other.

3. How often do you wear your hair in a ponytail?
Not that often, actually.  I tend to let my hair run wild and will catch it and pin it up, but very rarely do I put it in a ponytail.  I find they do weird things to my hair and pull my curls out in a strange way.

4. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely not.  But that can’t come as a surprise, as I hardly believed in love.

5. What is your favorite appetizer?
Tomato and mozzarella salad.  Amazing.

6. What is your favorite brand of heels?
I actually don’t wear heels often.  I’ve broken my ankle twice and am generally a klutz.  I wear flats, and any flats, really, so long as they’re cute and comfortable.

7. Are you a picky eater?
Yes.  I have a passionate dislike for meat, I’m deathly allergic to shellfish, and just for fun, I go through periods of time where something I used to love, I can’t stand even the smell of it.

8. Is there a tv show you like that nobody ever talks about?
Not particularly.  I tend to watch fairly mainstream stuff.  Wait, no.  Someone on Twitter just reminded me of one.  Once Upon A Time.  That’s an awesome show.  Let’s talk about it.

9. Do you prefer hot tea or cold tea?
Tea.  Hot.  But not Earl Grey.  And not Tetley.  Gross.  I’m a huge tea snob.  I love green and white tea, I like black tea.  I like flowering teas, I prefer my tea to be loose leaf.
10. Gayle or Peeta? (If you don’t know how to answer, read The Hunger Games.)
Hands down, Peeta.
