Video of the Day--The Spice Boys

I can't believe I forgot to post this!  All I can say is that it has been a very busy week and somehow I never scheduled today's post.  Anyway, unless you've lived in a cave this past week, you know that The Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys might be going on a tour together next year.  It is like the 90's threw up all over the 21st Century and might be the only reason to actually say Awesomesauce!  Because it is so out of left field.  Who would ever put those two groups together?  So, in celebration, I've got a twofer for you today.  First, it is 2 Become 1, which is probably my favorite Spice Girls song.  When I went searching for this video on youtube, I realized how awful it was.  What is with the weird NYC backdrop?  Why does Sporty Spice look homeless?  What the hell happened to Ginger's eyebrows to make her look angry all the time?  Don't believe me?  Check it out below.


I was a huge Backstreet Boys fan back in 1998 and I had the first 2 CD's (actually, my Dad bought the first one for himself--from Sam Goode--and I stole it from him).  Before I got the CD's, I taped my favorite songs off of the radio (I remember the cassette this one was on also included Waiting for Tonight by JLo).  The sad thing is that I have just as many questions about this video as I had about the other one.  Was Nick meant to look like a girl in half the video?  What was with the awful bleach blonde dye in AJ's hair?  Why were they singing in a huge birth control container?  It just boggles the mind.

Throwback Review: The Dream Trilogy by Nora Roberts

There are some books that stick with you no matter how long it has been since you first read them.  For me, the Dream Trilogy has always been in the back of my head.  I probably read them a good 15 years ago and the last time was a good 10 years back.  As a matter of fact, that trilogy was part of the first round of books I purchased when I got my first kindle for my 24th birthday (I never actually read it after buying the digital version; I guess I just needed to know that I could read them if I wanted.

The first book of the trilogy, Daring to Dream, was released in 1996 when I was just 10 years old and more concerned with passing math (I did, but not without many a night of struggling to remember what the E in PEMDAS meant) than I was with the goings on of fictional characters inside the pages of a book.  In fact, if I read at all during that time period it was to get a free pan pizza through Pizza Hut and the Book It! program.  I've mentioned this a few times before, but I act…

Review of "Bay of Sighs" by Nora Roberts

A couple of months ago, I volunteered to read Stars of Fortune, the first book in Nora Roberts's Guardian Trilogy for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge because ParaNoras are my crack.  If they were illegal, I'd be serving a life sentence for possession/intent to sell a controlled substance.  Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of book 1, but I'd already requested Bay of Sighs, so I felt the need to read it too.  Plus, I liked the idea of a mermaid heroine -- one whose name was not Ariel.  I really wish I resisted reading this.  It was awful.  It took everything I hated about SoF and magnified it to the level that I wasn't able to finish it.

Annika is a mermaid, sent to "the shore up above" to stop an evil goddess from getting the Stars of Fortune.  Together with the five other guardians, she must search for the stars and protect them.  Afterwards, she must return to the sea, which wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for Sawyer King...

Review of "Sleepless in Manhattan" by Sarah Morgan

I bought this book with the intention of reading it on a plane from San Francisco to New York City last weekend.  Of course I read about 30% before even stepping foot onto the plane and once I was actually on it, I read maybe 5%, listening to the most recent Smart Bitches podcast and watching a few episodes of Charmed on Netflix because I had an awful night sleep the evening prior and was too tired to read.  I finally sat down to read it Sunday and Monday night.

Paige Walker has lived a sheltered life, brought low by a heart condition that had her in and out of the hospital until her late teens, but now in her late 20's she's finally healthy and happy.  She loves her life in Manhattan.  She'd felt stifled in her hometown of Puffin Island and as soon as she was able she moved to New York with her best friends, Eva and Frankie, as well as her older brother, Matt.  On the verge of a promotion at work, she figures she's got it all, but then the rug is pulled out from unde…
