1998 -- Spice World



I saw the movie opening night, purchased (purchased!!! this was pre-Napster) the CD, and had pencils and suckers and all kinds of Spice girls shit. I thought it was funny. It occurs to me now that all these irony-purchases are probably 98% of their sales.
To complete their world domination and to milk the shit out of the almost spent cash cow they liscensed their name to a really crappy Playstation game. This was the summer of Mario Paint Porn and The Napkin Chair. I don't remember a) how we aquired said game (did I actually buy this, or did I rent and not return?) and b) how you actually play it. This is probably on account of all the a) Long Island Ice Teas and b) pitchers of Labatt's that were poured down my gullet at our favorite bar called The Peanut Barrel right near our place. Also, eating mushrooms, snorting ritalin, and splashing around in fountains on the campus of MSU leaves some of the details a bit shakey.

I probably met you for the first time around this time. And the Spice Girls thing really explains a lot of my immediate feelings. Who knew that the day would come that I love you this hard, though. So much has changed. I was so wrong. Yet another example of my horrible judge of character skills.

I saw the spice girl movie on opening night too. We got like 20 people together (literally!) and all bombarded the local AMC with out glee. I was in 10th or 11th grade I think.
