Welcome to one of my favorite times of the year -- the Spring Equinox and Naw Ruz (Norouz/Norooz/Nowrooz/Nowrouz)! And this year, just like every year, all of Tehrangeles is in the spirit by sending out messages of goodwill for the year. During a quick drive-by on Westwood and Santa Monica I spotted a few ads from a Family Law/Immigration Law Attorney, Papa John's Pizza, Wells Fargo, a Social Security Disability advocate, and Amir. Thanks for the well wishes, everyone, and Happy Naw Ruz!

Just found out that my favorite show as a tween - before the word "tween" was even a word yet - is back on the air: Clarissa Explains It All. Allowing me to relive my childhood, Nickelodeon has announced that they will be rerunning several sitcoms from the nineties, including Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, and Rugrats.

Not only was the show one of the first to have a lead female star and to utilize computers, it also depicted brilliant clothes - leggings, flannels, vests, prints, colors. Clarissa Darling was my original style icon, and her calculating schemes led the way for the present-day Blair Waldorfs.
