Good god no, the mall hair, the really horrid high waist, tapered leg, acid washed jeans, and every other a-hole being a cocaine cowboy, no thanks.

Oh but the parachute pants....ahhh.  What a fashion staple.  As in a fashion staple in the eye.

Stone washed jeans were also pretty horrendous.

But I say the music was pretty darn good.

New wave music!

I miss the music and the bright spandex leotards the chicks wore.  The ones that rode up the side all the way to the waist.

And the hair, too.

You'd have loved my mullet.

I sure do! Why I don't know. Life seemed so easy back then.

I miss my matabolism and 29 inch waist, my energy level, and 80's hair bands.

I wish I still had enough hair for my old mullet Smile

Business in the front, party in the back.

This is what I miss the most.  Being able to listen to the radio and not have to say "ick, OMG what the hell is that?" As it is, I'm happy to only listen to my iPod with my collection of 80's mixes and never having to deal with a commercial.

*selects Talking Heads on her iPod*

I miss my metabolism and the youthful ignorance that went along with it. Life WAS easier because I was a teenager! Nobody told me how being a grown up and parent can suck! Working, paying bills, making sure there's groceries and clean clothes for the kids... I'm hoping that clothes move on into the preppy part of the eighties when my girls hit puberty (now). Yesterday I saw a man pass the aisle I was in in the grocery store...full mullet, porn 'stache, and skull and crossbones cotton pants along with a fanny pack in the front. WOW, was all I thought. Didn't know they sold pants like that.

Funny. I saw a guy at a job fair I was attending-in a 3 piece suit..with tennis shoes and a fanny pack. I was like really..this is my competition and I can't find a job.

I've never had a tiny waist.  :(

Ah, the late eighties and great death metal.

And those ridiculous stirrup leggings - I wish I had a pair. I'm tired of my leggings constantly rolling up.

Can't say I miss the eighties, though... Being born in 1990 and all.

I'm a forward-thinking person, so no.  What's past is past.  No sense dwelling on what's done and over with.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
