Our collection started with Ginger. The Posh Spice doll was the only one we had trouble finding. I remember spending hours calling various department stores asking if they had her doll in stock.

Why am I admitting this here

i could only ever find them at claire's. and they always just seemed to have baby, posh, and sporty.

i had really red hair and umm...something else in common with geri ...at the time and my best friend had blonde hair so we called each other ginger and baby. good god we were losers back then.

We found most of the dolls at Target. We drove my mom crazy for the month or two we spent hunting down all the dolls. They wouldn't release all of them at once.

I remember making my friends call me Posh. A classmate hated me for it because she felt she was more deserving of the nickname since her grandparents were British. I wore skirts an entire week to school to prove just how posh I was. Suck it, Ashley!

I'm still a loser

Did Geri leaving the group destroy you? I remember drawing a mustache and devil horns on her on a group poster I had hanging in my room. That was totally the ultimate betrayal!!!111

Let's get married in loserly matrimony.

yeah i was disappointed and stuff. but when i found out she was leaving to go solo i was like "all right yeah geri you go girl!!" i even went out and bought her solo album, i was probably the only person in this city who did. i can't remember if i did anything to the spice girls posters i had in my room though. i do remember buying the first magazine they were on after geri announced her departure, i think it was entertainment weekly or something. i've still got all that stuff in a box somewhere.

all right!

My love for Geri died when she left the group. I kind of liked her first single from the solo album she recorded, uh... I can't remember what it's called. I wouldn't admit that to anyone at the time though. My friends were all extreme Geri h8rz.

I'm going to listen to the Spice Girls right now.

it was called "look at me." i remember the video for it, there was like a funeral scene, i think for her old self or something, a huge moment and stuff.

i'm always a faithful fan, i remember when john taylor announced he left duran duran, i was soooo upset but i still bought his solo album. oh wait, that's cuz he'd already released the first one. oh well, my point is...well i don't really have one i guess, lol.

i'm embarrassed to admit that even though before this past summer it'd been over four years since i'd listened to the spice girls, i still knew all the lyrics to wannabe, including the rap and everything.

mayhaps it's $1.25 per member, or mayhaps posh gets an extra $1 so she can get a burger or something. she's a stick these days.

Nice.

Nothing sets the mood better than that saucy (yet) random birth scene towards the end.

Will they make it to the concert in time?

Oh yeah! Wasn't the video kind of James Bond-ish and involve rain? Hmm. Maybe that's the video for her craptastic cover of "It's Raining Men."

Haha, I had no idea John Taylor ever recorded a solo album.

To this day I still don't have that rap part down. I'd always mumble along and pretend to be one of the cool kids.

i remember the video was in black and white and that's really all i remember. oh! and she was like on a payphone or something?

you didn't know he...omigor. he's recorded like ten of them. plus neurotic outsiders. not to mention his production work with other groups and his work on the roxy music tribute album.

awww, see this is why i would always sing along with the lyrics insert at first so i'd make sure i'd have the lyrics down. during the summer of 97, the three cds i listened to non-stop were: spice girls' spice, U2's pop, and beastie boys' hello nasty. at least i was diverse.
