I am Jessie Spano.

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

So, you know how Facebook was doing that whole who’s-your-celebrity-doppelganger thing last week? Of course you do. Well, I wasn’t sure who to put. I’ve been told I look like everybody from Mariah Carey to Chelsea Clinton to Lady Gaga to Phoebe Buffay from Friends (although that may have more to do with my personality). Not all the biggest of compliments, but hey. I can take it. My boyfriend thinks I look like Kate Beckinsale, but he loves me and that’s his job. (Thanks, baby.)

Then it hit me. Jessie Spano. No, not Elizabeth Berkley. Jessie. Now you might not see it, but in 1993 I looked AND acted a lot like A.C. Slater’s very own “Mama.” Just ask Carina. Opinionated know-it-all. Check. Feminist. Check. Outspoken liberal. Check. Big perm. Check. Addicted to caffeine pills. Well, four outta five aint bad.

I still wear that Mickey Mouse nightgown when I'm sick.

Jessie Spano it is. Big mouth. Big hair. Good friend. Likes to accessorize. Pretty much sums it up. Oh, and tries to start a singing group with her best friends (Carina, should I add the audio from our sixth grade singing days to an upcoming post??).

So, in honor of our girl Jessie, I present "I'm so excited, I'm so excited, I'm so... scared."


  1. thank you for having the decency to crop me out of that photo from freshman year, that's true friendship, cocoa.

    so happy that you've found your own personal screech, i mean scott speedman. love you, lady!

  2. Oh you totally made my day. Now please don't scare me and start doing weird thingss in VEGAS (gasp!) ;-)

  3. You made my day. That was fantastic. :) Haha!

  4. That is an epic clip right there, Jessie. I took some caffeine pills once.

  5. i'm laughing so hard right now. oh god.

  6. Oh sweet, SWEET Lord. How much do I love you for this post?

  7. Oh girl, we are sisters at heart - while I don't have the beautiful curly hair, I, too, am Jessie Spano. This just made my day. You rock, lady!

  8. I'm thankful that no Showgirls pics made their way in.

    PS. I had to get the hell outta dodge.
    http://oughtasay.blogspot.com/ <-- I'm here now.

  9. perfection?! YES!
    i can't believe it!!
    that clip is slap-your-knee hysterical!!

  10. PHOEBE!!!!!! OMG you are just like her! After a few drinks or a tylenol PM, of course.

    Buggeeee funnneeeee.

  11. Umkay, I know this post was about Jesse and how excited...and scared she is...but I saw Phoebe and was like OMG actually outloud.

    Sawyer is gay.

  12. I seriously LMAODDDD.


    Haha, excuse my spaziness.

    Also, OMG I know about the Facebook thing! I got votes on Leighton Meester meets Indian actress Deepika Padukone.
    How I wish.

  13. oh man! jesse spano is awesome! one of my friends from high school is kelly kapowsky. wow.. good timessss

  14. hey thanks for stopping in at my blog! love yours! -- i totally know what its like to get told you look like EVERYONE under the sun! i got: lindsay lohan, heather grahm, hilary duff, ariana richards, mary kate olsen, amy smart... and i've been told i act like drew barrymore, and nicole richie... -- but jesse spano! that's a GREAT one!

  15. ha ha ha I loved Jessie! This is amazing!

  16. bahahah!!!!!! this is hilarious!

    i think i am janeane garofalo!

  17. I love jessie! That is hands down the funniest episode of saved by the bell! Great blog!

  18. OMG! You are Jessie. SAME HAIR! SAME EVERYTHING!!!!
    You are super cute.

  19. My gosh, that poster made me laugh really hard and I had to drag my husband over to the computer to see it. Thank you for being Jessie Spano.

  20. people are so odd, I used to be called Chelsea Clinton all the time. Jessie Spano is much better than teenage Chelsea any day.

  21. Ali (http://www.alibdubrow.blogspot.com/) sent me over here to check this out because I just posted one that's freakishly similar, lol. We all have a little Jessie in us, I'd say... but you even had the hair! So awesome.

  22. Ah, I love it!

    Thanks for the flashback too, I haven't seen or even thought about "saved by the bell" in years. I used to watch it every day. Love it!

  23. I stumbled upon this since I am trying to acquire photos of Italian Deep Wave hair styles for a female friend of mine...Jessie Spano hair rocks!

    As a big time Elizabeth Berkley fan I must inform you--that wasn't a perm. The super curly frizzy hair is her. She straightens it now.
