like a bad habit


I've gotten over these things:


I think the "M" now stands for "Moronic"


I cannot imagine cleaning a house this large.

These days perfume just makes me sneeze.

This one goes without saying.

Truly, I must have been drunk to think this was the ideal vacation.

Howl it with me: Nooooooo!

It's true what they say, "rum makes you dumb."

Overalls aren't even a good look for farmers.

Spill it, reader, what awful thing did you used to admire?

  1. The list is SO long...hairspray., tight jeans rolled at the ankles, monogramed sweaters, that little alligator on my polo, having my collar turned up, and don't forget Micheal Jackson and his gloved hand.

  2. I used to wear overalls, perm my hair, trowel on purple eye shadow, and more.

    The 80s were not a good decade for sartorial splendor.

  5. Permed layered hair, sprayed within an inch of it's life, eye shadow to match what I was wearing, drinking until not being able to remember the stupid things done while being drunk, really baggy clothes... I mean, I loved my overalls but now that is just too many things to remove when I have to pee. I used to wear them with a leotard as a top - What was I thinking?

  6. Oh yeah, and any event involving a large noisy crowd - like a big concert or amusement park.

  7. Sun In! My sisters still tease me about my "orange" hair after spraying that stuff in it and spending the afternoon on a towel in the backyard.

    I couldn't agree more about the M in Mtv these days. I remember how exciting it was when Mtv premiered and all those hours we spent watching real music videos. Ah, those were the good ol' days!

    Odd earrings

  9. I'm laughing for a different reason. My husband thought he'd be all retro-hippy and grow his hair long -- until someone commented he resembled Yanni. Haircut, next day!

  12. Looks like most of us were tortured by the over-all years.

    What about socks and jelly shoes? Banana clips, tall bangs. Oy.

  15. Leggings with ankle boots. Or hiking-ish boots (my real favorite).

  16. I think just saying "the 80's" covers it.

  17. I'm older than some of your readers. I used to wear hot pants with fishnet stockings. And we didn't think we looked like hookers! It was 1972.

  18. Loves Baby Soft; Mall-Hair; aqua-net hairspray and my hair dryer to get those bangs standing at attention; rolled jeans at the ankle and white keds with a jean jacket; stonewashed jeans; my favorite: the little monogram sticker that we put in the lower corner of our glasses:) Truly, sad.
