Why Geek Week?
Because for the next seven days this blog will be dominated by my other (geeky) fixations both past and present. I figured I should get one of the more embarrassing things out of the way first:
Beverly Hills 90210
This show was a can't-miss for me from 1991-1997,I lost interest after the "Kelly-gets-trapped-in-a burning-building-and-then-ends-up-on-coke" storyline. But,in the early 90's I loved everything about it. The campy melodrama,the implausible story lines, and the guys.
Actually,one guy in particular; Luke Perry.I thought Jason Priestley was handsome,but his character Brandon was a self-righteous hypocrite,so I couldn't stand him.Besides,I'm not that into blond men.
Except for Spike and Eric.
OK,maybe I'm just into blond vampires (more on that later in the week)
Dylan was a hot brooding mess.He was a rich latch-key kid with an absentee criminal dad,and a hippy-dippy absentee mom.In short,he was irresistible. He was also an alcoholic who cheated on Brenda with her best friend while she was in Paris. (Me?Still bitter? nooo!)
I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. When I heard there was going to be a 90210 re-do,I thought,"That will be fabulous!" And then I watched it. Even with cameos by Brenda,Kelly,and Donna it wasn't the same.I don't care about the new kids at all.Then again,I'm not 12 anymore,so there's a good reason for that.Unlike the MTV reality shows that I still watch (shut up), I've outgrown 90210. It makes me a little nostalgic for the old days...*sigh*
I was trying to come up with a colour that would perfectly capture the cheesiness of early 90's TV,and I thought, what is more 90's than bright blue?
I chose was Sally Hansen Salon Calypso Blue
A shimmery bright that is not as neon as it appears in the picture.Unfortunately,this is the colour my camera changes it to. This is 2 coats.
So what are your geeky obsessions? W.O.W? Magic the Gathering? anything besides live action role playing? Or do you have an absurd amount of pens like I do?
Happy Monday Y'all!
Ginger-who is determined to have a good week with no drama.Wish me luck!
