  6. Great list, Presentstorm...
    Haven't thought of L.A. Gear in a very looooong time!

    I'm here from Michele today!

  7. Yes, great list.
    And although I grew up in the '60's, I do remember these, at least some of them. Who could forget little Clara Pellar and her "Where's the beef?" as well as "I don't think anybody's really back there."

    Here from Michele.

  8. LOL... still singing!

  9. Not singing any Bon Jovi, but I was definitely a child of the 80's.

    I think I'll go play pacman and listen to Duran Duran

    Here via Michele's

  10. jon bon jovi has actually gotten better looking as he's aged. i grew up in the 70's, but had kids in the 80's, so i remember most of these too.

  11. Jelly shoes and Jordache jeans...o those were the good ol days :)

  12. Those are great.....nice trip down memory lane!!!

  13. yikes, i think i need to check into 80s rehab after that . heh heh

  14. Oh I wanted to BE Punky Brewster SOOOO bad! My mom had the BEST jelly shoes - they had super long laces that you could criss-cross up your legs and tie them just below the knee.

    Oh, so many good memories. Or scary memories. I'm not sure which.

    Acid wash Jordache jeans and high tops were pretty much my uniform back then, too. Wow. BUT, I was never a Bon Jovi fan. I liked country music, which made me super uncool. I even did a lip synch in grade 4 to the song "I was country when Country wasn't cool" by Barbara Mandrell. I was so proud.

    Thanks for the fun trip down memory lane! :D

  15. I'm following you today a few times..Here from Michel, once again...
    I LOVED Pee Wee...Still do!

  16. Oh yeah ...Pee Wee was great always cracks me up ...

    and does anyone rememeber the show " You can't do that on television"?

  17. Are ya trying to make me feel even older than I am? ROFL Thanks for the laugh! Ohhh and I love the picture. I think I had that one on my bedroom wall. ;)

  18. " You can't do that on television"?

    OH yeah I do. It was a favorite of mine.

  19. I pre-date the 80's by way too many years - but I always thought Jon was really cute and he's a good actor too.

    Michele sent me.

  20. I'm way too old to be an 80's kid, I'm more of a 60's kid myself. But I sure remember a lot of your stuff, and I've done a lot of it myself. Yellow Reebok hightops with the velcor closures, neon clothing, banana clips, spiked bangs, t'shirts with the collars and sleeves ripped off, "You're a Maniac, Maniac..",
    all those commercials, and yes, every frigging John Hughs movie ever made.

    Never mind that the 80's had the BEST MUSIC ever.

    Here via Michele.

  21. How about twist beads? You remember those? And the huge belts that had buckles the size of your head.

  22. Nothing like coming back off of a journey and getting reminded of the 80's!!! And if your a guy doing the list, you remember when Madonna was a sex goddess!!! :) See you around the SB

  23. hahaha... oh so true... does this mean we're old now?
    all of it's true... except the mullet.. i had princess di hair instead!

    anyway.. .here from michele's but you're always a hoot to read! SIKE.. NOT! hahaha :)

  24. ah dear sweet you cna't do that on TV. I was always shocked that that girl would let her nickname be "Moose." Cause ya know, that's real feminie and all. But you're not gonna catch me saying "I don't know" that's for... aw crap. SLIMED!

  25. Dang! Jon was such a sexy pretty boy! :-)

    I still wear the scrunchy socks. They're so cozy around the house. I still have spandex, although I would never dream in wearing it out in public.

    Thanks for the fond memories down the 80's memory lane. *sigh*
