My Favorite Things - 80's Edition

Yesterday had me all nastalgic and stuff so I thought today I'd present a special edition:

My favorite things 1988-1992

layered neon slouch Socks

Slap bracelets

Lee Press On Nails

Banana clips

Skip it

high bangs

Penny hockey

Trapper Keepers

tight rolled stonewash jeans

Pogo Ball

Scratch and Sniff stickers

Troll dolls

chapstick in metal tins

my new breast buds

(and oh god did I ever love my cassett tapes!!)

Tiffany (Tiffany) - I wanted to be her *so* bad

Debbie Gibson (Out of the Blue)

Ace of Base (The Sign)

NKOTB (Step By Step/ Hangin' Tough)

Also, I found this site and laughed OUT LOUD at the obsurd names of my toys. I also felt incredibly spoiled because I had every one of these toys (except the Teddy Ruxpin because my mom said it was a piece of shit and would probably break before I got it home.)
Pound Puppy?
Fluppy dog?
My Child doll? (her felt face always got so dirty!)
Also that Roller Racer thing smashed the crap out of your fingers if you weren't careful. Ouch!

My boss was recently telling me that her teenage daughter is begging for a Ouiji board and she can't find one anywhere. Her daughter asked what it was like to play with one and if she ever played, "light as a feather, stiff as a board." Um, I DID!!

I wish I still had my Popples.

I still have my Popples! I also had a Cricket doll...she talked to you.

Light as a feather, stiff as a board...I wish I could remember the rest of the chant but I can't.

What in the world is "my new breast buds"?

Also, Hell Yes! Smooshies! Loved those things.

(p.s. my boss walked in while i was typing this. I wonder what she would have thought of me if she read this... ha.)

Didn't YOU get breast buds when you were 12 mermanda? I did. I loved them.

(hehe your boss saw breast buds and smooshies in the same paragraph)
