I loved the eighties then, and I love them now. I loved the hair and the jewelry and the way people, even straight guys, dressed up. I loved the music, which, you're right, could certainly be overly-dramatic, but there was also a kind of happiness to it that I don't get in today's music. Even my gay bf, the one who works at Goodwill, and is probably in his early twenties, has said to me that there has been no really fun fashion since the eighties (and he dresses SO fun!)
I totally agree. I love it when guys dress in a fun way. SO few guys consider anything other then comfort in dressing.
I wonder if you've seen the side effect with Craig that I've seen with Tommy, though. I know you like to dress well. A lot of times if I dress up for something, even a little, Tommy will, too. He used to ask me if he needed to or if I wanted him to, and I'd always say he should wear what he wants. I can't say he dresses in a fun way, but often he will put on nice trousers and a nice shirt. I truly don't mind if he wants to wear a tee-shirt and jeans, but it is nice to see him a little more snazzed up sometimes! :o)
"We are strong! Heartache to heartache we stand! No promises no demands. Love is a battlefield."
I need my spritz to poof up my bangs.....
Mallbangs all the way! I had MCHammer pants and the pointy toe Fluevogs back in the day. I wore more buckles than you can imagine.
I wanted a pair of parachute pants in the worst way.
Go Ashley! This news brought a huge smile to my face!
The 80's. About the only thing I want to remember them for is the music and corny movies. Lol. I did like the waver style, but that's the only style from the 80's that I would repeat. Mall bangs be damned, I say, damned! I used to use a can of Aqua Net per day. EEEK!
I was addicted to the purple can of Aquanet, the "extra superhold". I don't even want to think about howmany CFC's I put into the ozone layer back in the late 80's.
I'm so happy about Ashley too! A little bummed that she's still going to the litter box so often though, but they did a urine test on her and it looked ok, so I'm thinking it could just be her old age?
My takeoff of "Love is a Battlefield"
We are cows
No one can tell us we're steer
Chewing our cud for so long
All of us knowing
This is a cattlefield.
I'm happy about Ashley. Hooray for my kitty-niece!
I like it when you get silly! I think that as serious as it feels sometimes that love is also a 3 stooges movie (as well as a battlefield).
AND an episode of Beavis and Butthead.
Tapestry vests are out?
Yeah... I'm the type who will assume it was a joke, and play along, as long as it's clear I think I'm laughing with them not at them. Worst I can be known for is someone who laughs too much. Ah well. :) There are worse fates by far!
But guilty pleasures are always the finest. One single french fry snuck illicitly off your date's plate is better than a plate-full of your own. We like best what is both harmless and somehow forbidden.
And ALL teenagers take themselves too seriously. And I'll bet they always have.
