It’s a slow news day. Actually, everyday is a slow news day, because I actively choose to not watch the news. Especially local news. According to them, everything is trying to kill you and your favorite sports team never wins. So, instead of writing about trivial things like the economy, I want to take today’s blog to a much deeper level. I want to take it to a time and place most of the people reading this can relate to: The 80′s.
Thank GOD for the 80′s.
I miss the days when you had one phone, and it was probably mustard colored and mounted on your kitchen wall. And that kitchen wall probably had floral wallpaper to match it’s floral carpet.
It was the time of big hair held firmly in place by Aquanet and where Jelly bracelets weren’t just for sad Goths. You wore Keds if you were cool and Guess jeans if you were rich. Oprah was fat. Probably because ice cream cones at McDonald’s were .39 cents. I’m nostalgic for station wagons with wood paneling.
Do you remember when your parents had to actually RENT a VCR along with the VHS tape of The Dark Crystal?
I miss the 80s much more than I ever enjoyed them at the time. What is that saying about rose colored glasses? Everything looks better through a Zenith Console TV firmly planted on your shag carpet.
So, when I got picked up in Hollywood by an 80′s Teen Icon one night, you bet your Garbage Pail Kids I was tickled Pretty in Pink. Let’s take a poll, shall we?
Just which 80′s Teen Icon do you think I went out with? Make your best guess from the choices below, and remember… Sit, Ubu, Sit. Good dog.
