the best friends you’ll never have

  • I have no idea why this windbreaker is being marketed as “BABYSITTERS CLUB INSPIRED,” but it strikes me as hilarious for some reason.
  • This isn’t directly BSC-related, but it reminded me of how Jessi and Claudia were often described.
  • A tutorial for replicating Claudia’s makeup look in Kristy’s Great Idea.

    Hey there! I just ran across this old post on diversity, with a paragraph that seems almost certainly like it must be about Ann:

    When I worked in publishing back in the early ’90s, I had a friend who brought me along to sort publisher book donations at a well-known author’s NYC apartment. On our way, my friend told me that the author, who had quietly and modestly started an admirable literacy foundation, had also broken the color barrier in series book covers. She had had to fight to get a black main character on the cover of a book, against marketing resistance fearing the book wouldn’t sell to the series’ great white readership. She won the battle, and that book sold more copies than any of its prior series-mates. This is anecdotal, but I have no reason to doubt its veracity.

    I was wondering if you’ve ever written about this or heard similar about it?

    @tintin lachance, no, I have never heard this anecdote. It does sounds like Ann, especially the “quiet and modest” part.

    That windbreaker is indeed hilarious. Who wore them in the series…just Kristy?

    I think Dawn, Mallory, Abby… Everyone! Except maybe Stacey.

    Haha. Yeah, not her.

    Joking aside, Claudia would have looked like blogger Susie Bubble.

    @eowyn yours is not the first comment I have received to this effect, I think :)
