I’m four episodes away from wrapping up Dawson’s Creek and the fourth season of Beverly Hills, 90210, plus a handful of days from the end of the year. Now that I have very little to do during the week and an entire week off from work between Christmas and New Year’s, I have more time for delicious ’90s goodness. I’m planning 11 posts between now and New Year’s, possibly more if I can fit them in. Here’s my tentative schedule:
DC 6.21, Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road – Dec. 15th
BH90210 4.29, Truth and Consequences – Dec. 16th
DC 6.22, Joey Potter and Capeside Redemption – Dec. 18th
SVH #132, Once Upon a Time – Dec. 19th (possibly earlier, but this is a safe bet)
BH90210 4.30, Vital Signs – Dec. 22nd
DC 6.23, All Good Things… – Dec. 26th
BSC Mystery #31, Mary Anne and the Music Box Secret – Dec. 26th or 27th
BH90210 4.31, Mr. Walsh Goes to Washington, Part 1 – Dec. 27th
DC 6.24, …Must Come to an End – Dec. 28th
BH90210 4.32, Mr. Walsh Goes to Washington, Part 2 – Dec. 29th
A super-secret surprise – Dec. 30th or 31st
This way we can kick off the new year with a new season of BH90210, plus the next show I’ll cover in place of Dawson’s Creek. This show launched a number of careers, had a catchy theme song, and had just the right amount of soapiness to fit in on this site. It also starred someone who later starred in one of the biggest shows of the 2000s, and it has a connection to the super-secret surprise.
Happy holidays, unless you’re Brandon Walsh, in which case I hope you get coal.

It’s that time of year where I go on vacation for a week and tear myself away from the computer. That means no posts until next weekend, when I hope to have two or three book recaps. Until then, amuse yourself by checking out some of the links in my Blogroll.

I’m not wearing red or pink. I feel like Laine Cummings.

I’m going out of town for a few days, so I won’t be posting anything until probably next weekend. Until then, entertain yourself with these two hilarious Funny or Die videos, one new, one classic:

Okay, not really Sea City, but I am going to the beach. I’ll be gone for a week, but I promise to have some book recaps to post when I get back.

I’ve decided to branch out from just writing about books, and I’ve chosen a late-’90s/early-’00s TV show to cover. There are a lot of ’90s shows I could write about, but I wanted to pick one that fits the blog. My favorite ’90s show is Buffy, and I’ve thought about covering that, but I’ve already written about it extensively elsewhere, so I thought I’d try something new.
I’ve picked a show I watched part of but never finished, one that I think had a big impact on ’90s pop culture. It launched a handful of careers (to varying degrees of success) and is still talked about today. I just hope I’ll be able to find all the episodes online. (Paying money for the DVDs would be too embarrassing.)
If everything goes as planned, I plan to have the recap of the first episode up tomorrow, so stay tuned…

I wish I’d had a camera with me at church this morning, because I spotted a very Claudia outfit. A 12- or 13-year-old girl was wearing:
- a magenta shirt covered in sequins
- a blue flowered skirt
- brown leggings
- a magenta fedora
And you know what? Like Claudia, she totally pulled it off.
The most interesting thing to me is that before today, I would have pegged her more as a Mallory, but only because she’s the oldest of seven kids. I bet she’d make an awesome babysitter, though.

I’m heading off on vacation for a week starting tomorrow, so there won’t be any action around these parts for a while. But I’m taking a bunch of books with me and I’ll write up posts on them when I get back.
While I’m gone, entertain yourselves: If you had to be stranded on a deserted island with a character from BSC or SVH, who would it be and why?

I think whenever I make a post that doesn’t have anything to do with anything, other than just drawing things to people’s attention, I’ll call it an emergency club meeting. I’ll try not to abuse that as much as Kristy does.
Just a couple things:
1. It’s not just you – I redesigned the site. This is what happens when I have some time to kill and realize I haven’t looked at WordPress’ themes for a while. I’ve only been working in marketing for six months, but the idea of redesigning things over and over to see what works is starting to get to me. I’m weirdly proud of the doofy-looking banner.
2. Of course I scored 100% on this quiz.
