My Favorite Things About Growing Up in the 80's!

The Breakfast Club. Every teenager on the planet can relate to this movie. "So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right? " - Bender

Feathered hair. I spent HOURS feathering my hair each day.

Duran Duran. Hungry Like the Wolf!
I liked Nick. Who did you like?

Atari "Adventure". This game rocked on so many levels. I hated the fucking bat.

Sixteen Candles

"What's happening hot stuff?" - Long Duck Dong

The 1982 Jane Fonda Workout. Feel the burn!

MTV and the "Thriller" video. It still rocks. I wanted to be one of the dancing zombies. BAD.

Rollerskating! Skate King Rules!

Ms. Pacman. If I had all those quarters back...

Beastmaster. Yummy. and who didn't love Codo and Podo??

Raiders of the Lost Ark. Best. Movie. Ever.

I remember going to see the midnight showing of this with my mom. AWESOME. Yes, I still say awesome. You have the rest of your life to get over it.

Levi Button-Fly 501's; ripped with bleach spots. Tapered down the leg for maximum sexiness.


Someday I will be Back in Black.

Tag, you are all it.

Life and Whatnot

Things have been sucky lately. My boo-boo thumb is blacker than the smoke from the Cali fires (scary stuff), and I have been hacking up my lungs through my nose. Yes, I've been ill, hence the no posting. I have also been, well how do you put it....REALLY GRUMPY. I've been bitchy and snappy and generally a real joy to be around. Money is tight at the moment and work is really busy with an audit coming up. Ug. I won't bore you with all the details, I just need some time to get over it. I'm doing better today despite feeling super tired. I have nothing to report that is blog-worthy, but here I am checking in cuz I know you have all been sitting on pins and needles waiting for my next post. Ha.

What have I been up to?

I've been smashing my fucking thumb, that's what. We have these big, heavy filing cabinets at work that you have to throw your body weight into to close. When I rammed my shoulder into the top drawer like a football player practicing on those big heavy bags, I forgot the tiny detail that was my thumb in the way. OMFG. I must of jumped up and down shaking my hand like a crazy freak for 10 minutes shouting some very colorful sentences. It went something like this:


Anyway, I almost passed out because the pain was unbelievable. I fractured my wrist once and it didn't hurt this bad. Let me tell you how much you use your right thumb. A LOT. I bump it on something every 4 seconds or so and yelp like a banshee. Oh, by the way, bump= lightly brush up against. It is all purple and black - and the picture doesn't even come close to showing the mess that is my cuticle. OUCH, people, OUCH. Do not try this at home.

The Boy's First Homecoming

I can't believe he's only 15. Is he not a total stud? More on my flickr account if you're interested.

This is why I love my job...

They bought me a VIBRATING chair. Yes, I KNOW. See the cute little controller? It's how they get me to work overtime on salary. Oooooh, the vibrating.

Occassionally my coworkers bring me all the supplies I need for cocktails. Here we see Wild Turkey and Coke in the convenient airplane bottle size.

Aren't you jealous?
