Who’s your favorite Spice Girl?
She needs a new dress, but I vote for Ginger. She looks like she’s been around, but still has her optimism. That’s how a woman in her 30s should look.
Posh is the new Scary. A guy could put an eye out on one of those plastic hooters.
And if you’re wondering, here’s the news peg: They’re going back on tour.

I think Ginger’s boobs might be a little overly perky too, but not even close to Posh’s. Those look like they would be painful. Has it been determined if Eddie Murphy is Mel’s baby daddy yet?

Posh Spice – no problem is you are a man wearing glasses.

Ginger’s looking a tad like June Carter Cash in that photo or Tina Louise in the Stepford Wives.

Andy Andy Andy — I can always count on you to point out the things that matter. Especially if they come in pairs.

I have a pop-culture gap from my Christian mommy years–I have to admit I don’t know which Spice is which.
In the years ensuing, I have made up for that gap by finding out that “spice” is also a term for a polyamorous partner. As opposed to “spouse,” I guess.

Speaking of people far tinier and cuter than I, we took my son and his girlfriend out to a very nice Indian restaurant to celebrate his birthday. His previous girlfriend was no fun. Ate nothing and did not say one word. She wasn’t really shy, either. It was just rudeness. And she was mean to my son, but anyway.
This girlfriend is smart, and funny, and although she’s about a size two, ate like a lumberjack. She wasn’t familiar with Indian food, but gamely tried everything and really like quite a few of the things she tried. A girl after my own heart.
Did I mention she’s going to Berkeley on a scholarship at age 16?
Fine young lady.
Marcia said on June 28, 2007 at 3:26 pm
Yay, LA mary. That’s like hitting the lottery.

,Has it been determined if Eddie Murphy is Mel’s baby daddy yet?
yes, he is. i saw it on some celebrity web site within the last seven days.
and as for my favorite spice girl*, i vote for ginger, which, iirc, is english slang for a red-haired person.
*the one i’d swive first

Hey, y’all, I’m going to be doing a bit of blogging for Columbus Parent.
At least, until they kick me out for not being as
lame sappycheerful as the other bloggers.

I vote for Strawberry Shortcake Spice (f/k/a Ginger).
LA mary said on June 28, 2007 at 4:04 pm
Baby Spice is pregnant, so she’s looking a little less hubba hubba.
Kirk said on June 28, 2007 at 4:18 pm
Glory be. I thought I was the only one culturally bankrupt enough to not know the Spice Girls by name.
joodyb said on June 28, 2007 at 4:37 pm
ginger spice looks like a wedding cake!
who told them touring again was a going concern, do you think? and who will go see them? very interesting.
LA mary said on June 28, 2007 at 4:42 pm
I bet Simon Cowell had something to do with it. He sort of organized them in the first place. Spice Girls, Teletubbies, UK Wrestling and Il Divo. He’s a freaking genius.
nancy said on June 28, 2007 at 4:59 pm
Well, I had to look up one Spice. I remembered Baby, Ginger, Scary and Posh, but for the life of me couldn’t recall number five. (She’s second from the left, above. Turns out she’s Sporty.) BTW, gents, if you click on the story link above, there’s a much better shot of Posh’s knockers. They appear to threaten her chin in that…whatever it is she’s wearing.

I forgot Ginger last Sunday. Spice girl was a crossword puzzle clue. (it was Scary).
Ricardo said on June 28, 2007 at 5:09 pm
Oh! Why are they getting back together?
LA mary said on June 28, 2007 at 6:34 pm
Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy…
nancy said on June 28, 2007 at 6:58 pm
Why are they getting back together? How about 10 million pounds sterling per spice?
alex said on June 28, 2007 at 7:33 pm
Here’s a good name for each and everyone of them: Old Spice. I think it’s especially fitting because they’re noxious and cheap and favored by people from a previous generation who didn’t have any taste.
Jim in Fla said on June 28, 2007 at 7:35 pm
Hey, hey, hey. I grew up on Old Spice. It was either that or Hai Karate…
Dorothy said on June 29, 2007 at 6:56 am
I wonder what new body part(s) Posh is going to err… ummm.. expand with all that money?
Emma said on June 29, 2007 at 8:39 am
Looks like Posh should change her name to Spice Rack. (And as a bit of a ginger myself, I vote for Ginger Spice.)
nancy said on June 29, 2007 at 9:42 am
Spice Rack — snort. Emma, you should be in journalism.
Dave said on June 29, 2007 at 9:41 pm
OMG, I must be old, first, I’d never heard of whoever Winehouse and I can’t tell one Spice from another but I’d heard of them.
Has the reunion tour anything to do with the fact that David Beckham is coming to the U. S. to play soccer, sure to make the Beckhams part of Mary’s A-list.

Favorite Spice? Scary – only because it recalls an old headline I enjoyed – “It’s Scary at the top”
