I heard @TheBloggess’ Voice In My Head, and Could Not Stop Myself

An e-mail I just received:

Hi Shawn,

Celebrity parents Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli just released (exclusively to online shopping guide ThisNext.com) their daughters’ favorite / must-have “Back to School” items.

Items include everything from a BMX bike, to LunchbotsConverse to Hello Kitty – fashionable and kid-friendly, colorful and fun sums up the list!

Jennie and Peter’s beautiful daughters, Fiona (13 years old) Lola (9) and their youngest Fiona (5), are represented throughout the “Back to School” list with commentary on each explaining exactly why they LOVE each and every toy/accessory/school fashion.  Specifically, ANYTHING Hello Kitty and/or glitter oriented can be found throughout their house not to mention fashion staples such as the go-to kicks “Sparka-licious” Pink Converse and Levis Denim Jacket (which each of their daughters wear on a regular basis).

Below is a picture of the entire family at Disneyland including a quick snapshot of these items and for a full list, please visit ThisNext.com (http://www.thisnext.com/by/JennieGarth/).  Please let me know if you would like any additional information!



And yep, sure enough, there below was a picture of Jennie Garth and her family at Disneyland.

I could not stop what happened next, even if I had a thousand other chances to do so. I replied to Dave:

Hi Dave,

Thank you for the picture of Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli and their family at Disneyland. I love Disneyland. I have a friend named Jenny (ha ha, different spelling, but the same name, right? That can’t just be a coincidence) and in exchange for the picture of Jennie Garth, my friend Jenny has made the following available to you.

Let me know if you would like any more information about this.



P.S. Yes, I know I just gave whatever campaign Dave is part of a little space on my blog. I could have left the names blank or not linked to the links he linked. But I figured I owed Dave that much just for giving me a reason to think like The Bloggess for a second.

(Update: As has been noted in the comments, the e-mail suggests two of Jennie Garth’s three daughters are named “Fiona”. This is probably not true. I let Dave know.)

  1. That double Fiona thing stopped me cold and I couldn’t read on, because I was trying to imagine what it must be like at their house.

    “Fiona, get your shoes out of the hall!”
    “But those areFiona’s!”
    “They have YOUR name on them.”

    And so on.

    Was there some other content I should have been aware of?

    Thanks for the Wil Wheaton fix – he’s just as cute as a damn button, isn’t he??

    Shade and Sweetwater,

  2. That is awesome. I’ve recently noticed I use the word awesome far too much. I’m looking for a word replacement for awesome. Applications accepted at all Emsxiety locations!

  3. I had to look this up. She does NOT have two kids named Fiona (I think my opinion of her would go down if she did, which would be a pity because I’ve always liked her). According to Ye Olde Trusty Wikipedia:

    “They have three daughters: Luca Bella (born on June 30, 1997), Lola Ray (born on December 6, 2002), and Fiona Eve (born on September 30, 2006).”

    You’re welcome.
