This is a fun batch of questions from my real-life friend, Christine!
ALL ABOUT THE 90′s!
1. Which boy band was your favorite and your favorite song?
Backstreet Boys were my favorite and it’s impossible to choose a favorite song. Now I prefer NSync because I’m a fan of JT. Wasn’t it great how these guys danced so much? That just doesn’t really exist anymore. Five guys doing cheesy choreography? Lost art.
2. Your favorite spice girl?
Sporty. Me and some friends were the Spice Girls in 8th grade for Halloween. I was Sporty. Though I’m really a fan of all of them. Girl Power.
True story – I have the movie Spice World practically memorized.
Also, every time I see Victoria Beckham looking all serious and too-cool-for-school, I want to yell, “YOU WERE A SPICE GIRL! THE CHEESIEST OF THE CHEESE! GET OVER YOURSELF AND SMILE.”
3. Did you ever try the orbit drink?
No. I don’t even know what that is.
4. What brand of clothing were you in to?
I wore uniforms and I’ve never really been that into brands. Although I do remember owning my fair share of Adidas pants.
5. Did you watch TGIF?
Heck yes I did!!
6. What news story in the 90′s do you recall?
Probably the most obvious one is the Clinton/Lewinsky affair.
7. List which you think had the best talent. Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, Brittney Spears, and Christina Aguilera.
This is tough. I think most people would say Christina (or Xtina, as she is known these days), but I’m sort of leaning toward Jessica Simpson. I just prefer her voice. I know Christina has tons of talent but I’m just not a huge fan of her pipes.
8. Did Marilyn Manson creep you out?
Oh yes. Remember when that rumor went around that Paul from Wonder Years was actually Marilyn Manson? That was a fun rumor.
9. Who was your BFF?
Okay now. The 90′s was entire decade… TEN YEARS. I was aged 6 though 16 during those ten years and it is impossible to keep the same best friend for ten years through those ages. Some that ring a bell: Amber, Jennifer, Kendall, Debbie, Rachel, Lucy
10. A picture of you in the 90′s.
None of those are digital so my options are limited. Here is a photo of a photo… It’s one of the ones I had copied after Lucy died. This is us in the hallway at school. I love this picture.
