Ep 44 In the Breadbox of Friendship; or Claudia and the New Girl

Ep 44 In the Breadbox of Friendship; or Claudia and the New Girl

YOU. ARE. A. CRUMB. And that’s how you insult a traitorous teenage girl, I guess. This week we REALLY start getting into the cult-like mentality of the Baby-Sitters Club, in Claudia and the New Girl. How DARE Claudia give more attention to ANYTHING ELSE other than baby-sitting! Ugh! And though the new girl is very focused herself, she may have also been ahead of her time fashion wise. Oh yeah, SO! MANY! FASHION ALERTS! Thanks for listening! Hey, if you’ve…

Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Baby-Sitters Club #12 Kristy and the Snobs The episode Jess has been dreading the most! CW for dog death. This is an EMOTIONAL one, y’all! This one mainly deals with the decline of Kristy’s collie, Louie, and we frankly can not handle that. But at least Stacey really weirds some bratty kids out, and then there are other baby-sitting chapters that are entirely unnecessary. BUT MAINLY ANIMAL SADZ. We were too emotional to remember to do our current reads (apologies)…
