|Spice Girls: best girl band everrrr.|
Mostly, this meant they shared the same hyperactive tendencies, weird humor, and love of pop music - particularly boy bands. (This is relavent, I promise.)
|This boy band in particular.|
Through one thing or another, during a conversation that neither Krispy nor Chewy were a part of, Melted and yet another of the girls thought it would be funny to make a fake band where all the members had food related names. (See, even back then, we were all about the foodage.) We already had Chewy, Crispy, and Melted, and it was not unusual for pop music groups in the late 90s to have names that were sort of acronyms of the members' names (I'm looking at you N'SYNC*). Using their excess of creativity (and time), they came up with a viable and catchy sounding word: SMACK**
So two more girls were named Sugar and Artificial (like I said, weird sense of humor) since we wanted a candy theme. And thus CRISPY became KRISPY with a K (that was totally my tag line) to satisfy the whole acronym thing. We were Sugar, Melted, Artificial, Chewy, and Krispy, and we were a fake girl group.
And like many pop groups, girl or otherwise, we eventually broke up, leaving only KMA.
|Had to dig into my archives for this. Yes, it's a photoshoot.|
We went on to have a very short "career," in which we actually did some singing but mostly just hung out and ate Melted's wonderful cooking.
So there you have it. That's why my nickname is Krispy, and yes, my friends did and some still do call me that in real life.
Happy Friday! I'll be gone most of this weekend to attend a Bachelorette party (for one of my former "bandmates" actually), leaving poor Alz to fend for herself. I trust you'll keep her entertained. :)
Q4U: Have you ever done anything this weird or have an interesting nickname/origin story?
* N SYNC comes from the last letter of each member's first name. Lance was apparently "Lansten" or something???
** We were not fully aware of the slang connections to heroin, though that quickly became an in-joke.
