Back in the early 90's, my cute little french braided, teased-banged, rosy cheeked, purple stirrup pant-wearing self was obsessed with the following stuff:
Lisa Frank (not surprising):
My favorite was Panda Painter, I was an "official member" (whatever that meant) of the Lisa Frank Club, and I totally wish I still had some Lisa Frank stationery now! I can still taste the lemon fruit dip that was a featured recipe in an issue of the Lisa Frank newsletter (confectionary sugar, lemon juice, plain yogurt, i made it every day!) I remember the $50 rainbow-striped sweater that I obsessed over when LF came out with a clothing line. Ohhh... Lisa Frank. How I miss you!
Meatloaf (the singer, not the food - and this is the strangest obsession of all!)
"I Would Do Anything For Love" was my favorite song in 4th grade. My dad was a Meatloaf fan, I thought my dad was cool, so I became a Meatloaf fan, too. I still know all of the lyrics to every track on the Bat Out of Hell II album. I'll never forget the MTV Top 20 Video Countdown back in those days - it was always a battle between Dr. Dre's "Let Me Ride", Salt-n-Pepa's "Shoop", Aerosmith's "Crazy", and Meatloaf's 7 minute long video, for the #1 spot. Man, whatever happened to music videos actually being aired on MTV?
