Hi there , Peacherino here , once again ( if you’ve caught Cliquey Pizza – there I was called Peachalulu – and have been wondering where in the blazes I went – the land of gobbledygook struggling to learn HTML which is a little harder than Penny’s Urdu). I decided it would be much easier to open another website –
Ta da! For those of you who have just clicked on I’ll give you a little rehash of why Cliquey Pizza of all bizarre names. Well for me nothing sums up the 80’s like a clique – Heathers , the Breakfast Club , that pigeon hole way kids had of slapping a label on you ( Geek , Brain , Princess ) very much like the ones on the fanny side of their jeans – Chic , Jordache , Sasson. And nothing said the 80’s like junk food. Was Pizza ever more popular? Tombstone , Pizza Hut , Dominos , Chuck E Cheese , Show Biz Pizza , Pizza Pizza , Little Caesars , McDonalds Pizza – I should probably stop or I’ll be ordering one in a minute. You might be asking yourself okay then , but what does pizza have to do with Sweet Valley High , or Couples for that matter. Let’s face it neither series strove to be anything above their pulpy roots , they were junk food for the brain , mere Cliquey Pizza.
I love all kinds of 80’s book series and started collecting them about 10 years ago after I spotted a cover in a flea market and did a double take – Had Jennifer ( the fictional triplet from Sweet Valley Twins #6 ) miraculously become real and developed a spin off series?! Don’t laugh it’s not unheard of on t.v. Alas , it was only a eerily similar cover to Sweet Valley High- seeing as how the artist James Matheuse moonlighted between the two series ( and Roommates) , causing the vixen on the cover of Dream Girls to bare an uncanny resemblance to Jessica. Since then I’ve combed flea markets , garage sales , lots of used book stores collecting and adding to my old boxed away books which I took out for recherished reads.
So hold onto your high tops , here we go – again!
