Hot Girl-on-Girl Sleuth Action!

The battle between tomboy Trixie Belden and titian-haired Nancy Drew is ON:

Why would the great Nancy Drew come to Sleepyside to work on a mystery? Oh, I suppose the location of a mystery wouldn't much matter to the daughter of a former prosecutor who is now flush with income from his world-renowned private practice. I often have to work within a pretty tight radius, unless Honey Wheeler's father tosses me a trip as a crumb in return for hauling around his emotional cripple of a daughter. In contrast, I'm sure your father was happy to send along your pals Bess and George, along with a generous per diem to cover the food needed to enable Bess's grotesque eating disorder.
Nancy ain't trying to hear that, see?
Trixie, as I read your letter (which fairly reeked of your Crabapple Farm upbringing, if you don't mind my saying so) with cool detachment this morning, I couldn't help but feel a pang of sympathy. It seems like you have a lot of issues--hardly surprising for a girl with only $59.72 in her "college fund" (does your father really work at a bank? Just curious).
Will George Fayne settle it all with a mud-wrestling match between the two? If she doesn't, I'm sure it won't be for lack of trying. Posted by Ilyka at June 30, 2005 08:27 PM in hell is other people

Oh, dear God, this is HILARIOUS! I can't believe I remembered the names of all those characters. My adolescence is rushing back to me.

I hope we get letters from the Bobbsey Twins next. Freddie and Flossie were the most incompetent junior detectives EVER.

I loved both, but I related to the Trixie Beldan gang more.

Would it be evil of me to troll the baby name boards and try to get "Flossie" to catch on? It could be the new Mackenzie. I mean Mykynzi, whatever.

hi y'all! me and DH were talking over girl names last night and he is really set on "Flossie" only i think i like it better with a y (Flossye) but either way i think it would be great b/c noone has that name!!! and its kind of retro (the Bobsy twins) plus if we have a boy next we can name him Fryd! ok so what do u all think?

Y'ever see The Dirty Dozen? Remember the scene where they make Donald Sutherland a general and have him inspect the troops? He stops and asks, "Where you from, son?" and the soldier, all excited, says, "East Podunk, Idaho, SIR!"

Then Sutherland looks at the guy, takes a chew or two of his gum, and says, "Neeeever heard of it."

Neeeeever read 'em.

And this, Ilyka, is what you get for that "Colonel" remark.

what you get for that "Colonel" remark.

Honestly, I don't see why you're dragging me, a neutral party, into this.

Just because I, a neutral party--neutral, I tell you!--took a personal disagreement and posted it publicly, so that all my pals could stroke my ego, my neutral ego, by telling me how gloriously right (and neutral) I was, is no reason for you to drag me, the neutral party, into this.

That instead of ego strokes I, a neutral party, mostly received instead a virtual ass-whuppin', is not important right now.

What's important is that I . . . am a neutral party.

It's a good thing the neutral party doesn't read your blog.

Don't even THINK about it, Ilyka.

Or you either, Jim.
