Memory Lane

This is another day of enjoying something from the past. If you are anything like me you had a nice little crush on Dylan McKay and Brandon Walsh and if you are lost right now, you clearly did not watch Beverly Hills 90210. I decided to put on Season One tonight and enjoy Brandon and Brenda's journey from Minnesota from the beginning. It was so funny to see their clothes, hear their insults (In the first episode Kelly calls David a "Dork Meyer," and look at the guys I thought were hot back in the day with their mini-mullets.

I was just thinking how funny it is to know that when I first watched this I lived in Indiana which might as well have been 4 billion miles away from Beverly Hills and now I am no more than 45 minutes away and can relate when they talk about certain streets and now I know people who actually live on the streets they talk about. Crazy! Life sure brings you far in a few years. I would never have dreamed that one day I would see the high school that Brandon Walsh went to (It's in Torrance by the way, not Beverly Hills) or that I would actually know someone who lives on Doheny which is where Steve lived.

Anyway, all of that to say it was nice to take a stroll down memory lane tonight and enjoy some good old 90's memories. Life sure goes fast! My older sister who watched this show religiously during high school is now a wife and soon to be mommy. I am feeling nostalgic tonight I guess. I hope I haven't bored you!
