Anonymous asked: i have spent all night reading every page...i graduated high school in 1996 so you've basically archived my entire life here. i remember getting mono in 9th grade and watching the movie Singles every day when i was sick - still possibly my favorite movie of all time! another big memory - babysitting on Saturday nights and watching the "cool" shows on Nickelodeon - Clarissa, Roundhouse, Are you Afraid of the Dark. my first concert in 1992 - the Spin Doctors, remember them? LOVE your site, thanks!
We graduated the same year! Though at the time high schools in my province went to Grade 13, so technically we’re a year off. I saw Singles FIVE TIMES in theatre when it came out. I was obsessed. I thought Bridget Fonda’s character had the best life and I wanted it (barista with a grunge-rocker boyfriend — I got older and realized I ought to aim a litte higher).
I didn’t get Nick, but I feel you on the babysitting on Saturday nights and getting to watch whatever you wanted after the kids went to sleep. I used to like the Sisters drama with Swoosie Kurtz and Sela Ward.
I am jealous you saw the Spin Doctors! I used to crush so hard on Chris Barron. Lovely. ANYWAY, thanks, I am glad you are enjoying the blog!
