Avoiding another puppy post

We had a puppy at work today for waaay too brief a time. In order to avoid another puppy post, I'm just going to steal someone else's content for "Steal Somene Else's Content" Thursday. MJ already has an animal-related post. So, this goes back to another busy-publishing-professional converation that involved 80s fashion....Reeboks with 2 sets of socks, t-shirts with the sleeves rolled, and a million other fashion requirements. Do you know how hard it is to find good pictures of those things? Others must not remember them as well or maybe we all spent a decade running from the camera...

You might be a child of the 80s if...
You remember Don Johnson when he was "cool"
You practice getting in and out of your car through the windows
You know the meaning of Wax on/Wax Off
You wore lace gloves with the fingers cut off, bangle bracelets up to your elbows, bright red Reebok high tops and parachute pants to a school dance
You watch NYPD Blue thinking, "Well, they're no Crockett and Tubbs, that's for sure".
You had a poster of Bo, Luke & Daisy Duke
The feeling in your thumb is only now just returning after holding down the Atari joystick to control the racecar in Enduro Racer
You're still bitter that WHAM broke up
You know whose phone number is 867-5309
You drink Diet Coke because Max Headroom told you to
You still wear a bandana tied around your leg and/or a ponytail off-center on the side of your head.
You have the tendency to turn up the collar of your polo shirts
Everything in your wardrobe is either pastel or fluorescent
People are constantly gagging you with spoons.
Every now and then, you blurt out: "Ooh noo, Mr. Bill!!!"
You can name at least three members of the Brat Pack
Still think banana clips were a godsend
You still have a couple of those barettes made of woven ribbons.
You still think Donkey Kong can beat Mario up
You're still hoping for a New Kids on the Block reunion tour
You still argue over who was better: Tiffany or Debbie Gibson

ahh - the memories (or nightmares!)

My phone extension at work is 7-5309 - so you can tell how I remember it!
