1990s ZedStock Party

Welcome to the

Teri as Paula Abdul.

What a great decade! In the 1990s, the Billboard Top Ten were:

10. Because I Love You (The Postman Song) Stevie B
9. The Power, Snap
8. Cradle of Love, Billy Idol
7. Pray, MC Hammer
6. Hold On, Wilson Philips
5. Unskinny Bop, Poison
4. Step by Step, New Kids on the Block
3. Pump Up the Jam, Technotronic/Jam
2. I Wish It Would Rain Down, Phil Collins
1. Love and Affection, Nelson

On TV we were watching Cheers!, Murphy Brown and Designing Women (some even watched Matlock--not me, but someone did!)

Caller ID showed up for the first time, and Snapple became a hit in 1992. Joey Buttafuco jokes came into being in 1993.

Ah, the 1990s!
Put on the costume of your favorite 1990 character and join the party!

Britney Spears with clothes on.

I'm bringing my Britney Spears costume, to be donned in the morning, my killer mashed potatoes and Kitchen-sink Salad! And the music starts playing NOW!

... First up, yes, it's true: Vanilla Ice singing "Ice Ice Baby!" Haha!

I have my MC Hammer pants on for now, but that is only because my costume is still in the trunk of my car!

I am coming as Elaine from Seinfeld. Long curly black hair always up in a barrette, big shoulder padded suit blazers and matching pants or skirt. Always managing to get myself into one fix or another. Yep. That's me.

MixedNut, careful with that piercing!!

Sushiboy, what's in a Peach Vanilla Mystic?

Shelli, I like the curly black hair--just stay out of trouble, and keep away from Kramer. He's definitely nuts!

I know you're not sick of her yet....

Teri, she was/is such a good dancer/choreographer, but her Minnie Mouse voice, and since-then-craziness just makes me want to me to take her by the shoulders and shake hard. She is superannoying, so I just don't look or listen.

Thanks for the music from the 90s though! She was in great form them. Good times!

Paula and I went to the same high school.
She was a senior cheerleader and I was a nobody freshman.
Needless to say, we never traveled in the same circles but I still have my yearbook with her pic.

Teena, can't touch what?

Mixednut, didn't Paula go to high school in San Fernando Valley? So you did too? But I thought you were in the tri-state knew that NJ restaurant Barelli's? Please, I'm already confused, why are you trying to confuse me more? Huh? :)

And in the red corner, Sans the pie killer, in the blueberry corner, no it's gone - Sans has devoured it followed by the apple and the lemon & lemon meringue. His tongue is all foamy but he still swallows the peach and the strawberry in one gulp. He throws the raspberry & cherry & pumpkin and plum pies into the air and they fall in perfect symmetry down his gullet. His hands are a blur as he crams the rhubarb, minced, fudge, Snickers, cream & custard pies up his nostrils. The pecan, almond, shoofly and key lime take out their white flags and surrender.

mixednut, I hang my head in shame. Give it to me again, or point me in the right direction and I'll have a bookmark up in seconds. You'll see.
So give it to me already. (But I remember telling you that myspace is not a good space--you need a blogger space! So pfft to you too!)

Sans, put those pies down now. Back off! Let go of the the pecan. Stop hiding pies under your shirt!!!

The only ones allowed to throw up in my apartment are my cats Frankie & Johnny, and they're on thin ice on this matter as well.

Let go of the lemon meringue!

Mistic (I misspelled it last time) was a brand of drinks that was popular back in the early 90's at the same time Snapple was King. I couldn't find a picture of the Peach Vanilla which was from the 'sparkling' line. But I did find another of my favorites, Mango Mania.

hey, what happened to the Mistic's?

they almost look like wine coolers.
