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?


Crazy: A Drabble

“This is what makes me feel truly grown up,” She gestured around the store with her hands.

“Buying assembly-required student –living style furniture?” He smirked.

“No, you ass,” She poked him playfully in the shoulder, “Setting the place up.  Setting our place up.”

“Ahhh, I see.”

“Oh, do you? ‘Cuz that look on your face would suggest otherwise.”

“Oh? What, exactly, is my face telling you?”

“That you think I’m crazy.”

“You are crazy.  But then again, I’m in love with a crazy person, so I may not be the best judge of that.”

She smiled, “I love you, too.”

Lunch: A Drabble

She crosses the street, takes the underpass to the main road. This is a route she’s walked every day, she could do it blindfolded.

On her right, there’s a pile of blankets against a brick wall.“Hey,” She says to the blankets.  They move. A dirty face smiles at her, “Well, hello there.”She passes him a package, “Your lunch.”

“Thanks, Curly.”

Four men in business suits are walking towards them. Laughing, engaging in douchebaggery.

“Get a job!” One of them shouts towards the man in the blankets.

“I’d love a job,” he shouts back. “Can I borrow a suit?”

It’s time for BEDJ

Every so often, I take up projects that I don’t finish.  I’m hoping this is not one of them.

Blogger friends Edwin, Heather and their friend Amber started talking about talking on a Blog Every Day in June project (BEDJ).  I’m typically not very good at this post-a-day business, but I’m always up for a new challenge.

We’re going to try to come up with themes, topics or prompts to help us through the month.

Feeling adventurous?  Join us!
