In other news, chicken strips and BBQ sauce has proven much more appealing then protein shakes.
I also had the movie and poster. I also had all the dolls and pretty much any Spice Girls product that was released. I WAS Sporty Spice!

I'd spend it all on upgrading the stores with fancy decorations and giving stuff away to people in need.

This is exactly the kind of advising I require ^_^

I think Salem would be really cool to visit - especially since I'll be spending time in Lynn, but since we don't have use of a car I think it might be out this time around. Next trip though...

If you are more of a shopping person, Newbury street has some fun shops (including Pinkberry!) North End (old Italian neighborhood) is also nice to walk through (stop at Mike's Pastry).
I will be looking into everything you said - it all sounds like a good way to spend our time. (Also have already been advised that Cheers is... well, we won't be there for a meal. But I think it's ok to visit one tourist trap while being a tourist LOL)

I was Baby Spice, because I was the shy blond girl out of my friends.



I wonder what level in appropriate this was for me at like 11 years old...

Anyone else see Scary Spice's crazy dance toes?

There is no freaking way that this can seriously be a thing that is able to be done.

But I just hope you're able to find another job soon.
