nerdgirl.jpgGlam fans, if you've been keeping up then you know that I've read both books I purchased for vacation. Last night, I bought another book to read in the airport for my long wait tomorrow. While weeding through the massive Virgin store at Downtown Disney, I decided on Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City: A True Story of Faking It In Hair Metal L.A. I wasn't too sure about the book, but I thought it might be at least a little amusing, so I went ahead and plunked down cash for a paperback copy.


Apparently, the book is based around the of aspiring music critic "Soffee." Along the way she falls into the trap of thinking she is in the same league as her subjects and succumbs to alcoholism. According to Booklist she finds her way to sobriety and clarity -- to the point of penning her memoirs. I'll post a review when I'm done.


Eric and I ate dinner at Downtown Disney last night, too. During our meal a DJ keep spinning some records with videos projected on a giant screen. This man must be a kindred spirit because he played a whole lotta glam, including Poison and Def Leppard.


Here's one of those videos: Poison performing "We're An American Band."
