so on saturday i was at a swap meet and i came across this book
and the memories came flooding back.
the platform heels, the twisty buns, ohh the beauty!!!!
yes i'm talking about the SPICE GIRLS, the greatest thing to come out of the UK besides the american revolution and percy pigs.
these girls were such a big part of my growing up, it's hard to imagine it without them. when i heard they were doing another world tour i very nearly spent an absurd amount of money on some nosebleed tickets. i mean entertainment like that just doesn't exist anymore. what, am i supposed to digress to the sugababes? please.
some of you may not know, but i actually have quite the past with these girls.
the summer after SPICEWORLD came out one of my friends had the brillliant idea that we dress up like them and have a concert. well, one thing led to another and next thing you know we were having daily, sold out shows. sometimes we even had two-a-days, always in tessa's backyard. those poor neighbors must have wanted to die after hearing endless high pitched, pubescent renditions of "colors of the world, SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!"
this was not just an activity, it was a LIFESTYLE. we watched spice world every day, were constantly on the lookout for the greatest costume and we never, ever broke our accents. remember the spice bus they rode around in? ahhh i covenanted that thing with all my little heart.
our roles were as follows:
Jess Reichman as Ginger Spice
Ellery Baum as Sporty Spice
Tessa Riskas as Posh Spice
Cassidy Adams as Baby Spice
REBBIE GROESBECK AS SCARY SPICE. (duh)
if any of you know all of us you realize how amazingly mismatched some of these are. ohh it makes me so happy.
anyway, i just thought they deserved a little shout out since they're all getting old and lookin a little saggy. all except for mrs. victoria beckham, whose marriage to the hottest man in the universe immediately rescued her from any post-spice life trauma.
i highly suggest spicing up your own life by getting out your favorite spice cd and reliving the glory days, perhaps whilst driving or jumping on your bed. it brightened my day amazingly. and yes, i still know all mel b's parts by heart.
