You can thank my lizard brain for today dear reader(s).
You see, I sat down to put today's edition of LinkFrogging together without a cheesecake selection made. Oh, I'd done some research, for you, you understand, but hadn't landed on a suitable honoree yet.
Then, from deep down in the muck, the Lizard spoke. Oddly enough, he sounded like Val Kilmer. Whether he was speaking as a True Romance
style "mentor" or simply channeling Jim Morrison again, I have no idea.
What he said to me made sense and so here we are.
Please say hello to his week's cheesecake, Tiffani Thiessen.
Please note that we are using the millennial nomenclature and there isn't an Amber in sight.
Ms. Thiessen first sprang to notoriety playing Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell
. In that role she served as the object of Zack Morris' (and I believe Hunter's as well) nascent hormonal urges.
After five years at Bayside, Ms. Thiessen traded in her cheerleader outfit for a booth at the Peach Pit. She then spent five years in the hook-up factory that was Beverly Hill 90210
as Valerie Malone.
I feel I would be remiss if I didn't mention that between those two gigs she took part in that so very 90s rite of passage and appeared opposite Pauly Shore in Son In Law
She appeared in Vertical Horizon's 2000 video for "You're a God."
She is currently appearing on USA's White Collar
as Elizabeth Burke.
Say what you will about the USA, but they've figured out a formula and they are ringing every last drop out of it. They're also not shy about advertising their "characters welcome" initiative.
In fact, I believe it was the relentless pushing of White Collar
that woke up Lizard Val from his subconscious slumber.
Well done USA. Well done.
