I told you I’ll Tumbl for Ya Tuesdays might come back! This is where I exhibit my love of Tumblr, the mecca of crappy Thinspo posts, mixed in with pictures of ombre hair and old school Courtney Love. Tumblr is a good place to cultivate your serial obsessions. Currently, I only want to talk about Baby-sitters Club. I like these fake-o Tumblr posts. They’re visually enticing, but overly, kind of mindless. Here’s some BSC nostalgia which is pretty much Ooooh on the Claudia Kishi tip.

Raise your hand if Claudia and the Sad Goodbye ruined your childhood.

But she makes up for it by being everyone’s favorite kid-lit fashion icon.

Anyone who can buy me a Claudia Kishi doll can have one of my kidneys.

I fear Mallory. Any sensible girl did. We’re all afraid of what we don’t want to become.

I always thought Stacey was a Mean Girl.

A couple of posts ago I asked which BSC girl you were most like. A more telling question is, were you an HBO TV BSC kid or a BSC movie kid? The HBO series had an appealing theme song:

But I felt the casting of the movie was a little more on the money. Even more important, Claudia’s wardrobe was on point:

Though the movie was kinda rad (I just watched it. It’s on Amazon Instant), there wasn’t enough Claudia and that made me super pissy. Also, you have to watch 13 year-old Stacey make-out with a 17 year-old and it gave me the freak-outs.

If you need more BSC, I’m live-tweeting a Super Special as we speak
