(and I'd save him right back obvi).
But I do believe it was fellow Gemini's (with a birthday just one day before mine) Jessica & Elizabeth Wakefield who served as my two biggest SoCal Style icons and inspirations to be a SoCal Valley Girl.
Long before I was introduced to Brandon, Brenda and Donna Martin I spent many a summer vacation day getting lost in some good ole southern California drama.
Seriously, I would go to the Library and gets stacks and stacks of them and devour them. Not sure attempted date-rape, DUI's and excessive cheating was the best content for a third grader to read but I reread them over and over for years.
And I turned out just fine... I think...
I always related and identified to Jessica and her schemeing boy-crazy/bad-girl ways but I longed to a be an Elizabeth. Either way i loved those twins and their carefree California living ways.
And here I am now in LA living my SoCal dream up...
Can't wait to plan a Board Game night & bust out the Sweet Valley High board game, so i can steal Bruce Patman from Lila for a bit...
Were you a Sweet Valley High fan? who was your favorite?
And have you heard that a new series of an adult Jessica & Elizabeth is now out called Sweet Valley High Confidential. Can you guess which twin is divorced and already on her second marriage??
See, I always knew I was a Jessica.
