Spice up Your Life

Last night we were watching TV, there wasn't much on. The Unit, which is our usual Tuesday Night show was replaced by Frosty the Snowman. I guess we're done with that show until the strike is over.

We ended up watching a fashion show. Guess who were the musical guests. The Spice Girls! * They did one of their old songs -- "Stop right now, thank you very much, I need some body with a human touch, hey you always on the run, got to slow it down baby got to have some fun." No, I didn't Google that. All from memory. When I was a kid, three of my friends (I won't list names, but if they want to fess up they can.) and I would pretend to be the Spice Girls. We'd do our dances and even record them. (I hope those videos have all been destroyed). I usually got to be Posh, which means I was the pretty one, not the scary one, or gingery one, or baby one, or sporty one. Until last night I had forgotten about our crazy sleepovers. Maybe us girls should have a "spice girls wannabe reunion night".

*disclaimer, when you are a young uninfluencable teenager you cannot be held responsible for your musical tastes.

Ok, ok. I will admit it, some of the S Girls stuff was pretty catchy. And hey, they were easy to look at too so why do I feel so guilty? :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who rocked out to them. Although I've yet to hear any of their new stuff.I bet the lyrics will be about what its like to be a wife / mother.

"I bet the lyrics will be about what its like to be a wife / mother."

Yep I can hear it now...

"I wanna (huh) I wanna (huh) I wanna (huh)
If you want me to be a mother
then you gotta get me a ring"
