(no subject)

I'm an NPR news nerd. So I thought I'd mention that there was a discussion on books (mostly) girls read growing up yesterday on Talk of the Nation. You can listen to it here. I was upset that only one caller mentioned Sweet Valley High at the very end but I still think it's worthwhile to listen to. I think that this is what 1bruce1 is all about!

SVH TV Series: Episode 1.20 -- Kidnapped Part 2

My reasons for starting with the second part of this three-episode arc, in case you're wondering, are twofold. Firstly, someone's already provided 1bruce1 with a very thorough and enjoyable recap, which I've conveniently hyperlinked for you here. (You're welcome.) And secondly, no one actually gets kidnapped in Part 1, which I find a little weak. I don't reward misleading titles with my inherent wit.

In case you're either too lazy or in too much of a hurry to read the Part 1 recap, here's what you missed:

  • Elizabeth works as a candy striper at the hospital, and a creepy orderly named Peter has become infatuated with her
  • After they baked a cake together, Winston and Elizabeth have become good friends. He even gave her a friendship bracelet.
  • Jessica is obsessed with being a co-host on some TV personality named Jeremy's chat show
  • At the end of the episode, Elizabeth was sent a love letter. Todd thought it was from Winston. The viewers all know it's Peter.
