To Trish, Emily, and Rachel

Remember long ago when computers looked like this?

During this period of American Culture, it was ok for Pat Benatar to dress like this

I am not sure if was ever ok for Don Johnson to wear these shoes, but in the 1980’s HE DID!

Oh the 80’s……..you gotta love that decade, which is why I am submitting this Idea to Trish, Rachel, and Emily. HOW ABOUT AN 80’S PART TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY’S?

Last year, you all successfully threw the white trash party. Everybody had a great time dressing for the occasion. We loved the fact that you decorated the house in fake flowers and mullet pictures, and that you covered the windows in tin foil. Who could forget the white trash buffet featuring ants on a log and twinkies or my personal favorite, the clothesline hanging up in your front yard adorned with large sized undies.
If you want to do the white trash theme again, I will happily dress for the occasion. But wouldn’t it be fun to look like this?

The costume possibilities alone are plentiful! People could come in hair band style so wonderfully executed by the members of Poison:

OR, people could look more like the weepy morose Robert Smith of The Cure:

Oh the 80’s…the decade when most of us believed that this man was straight:

I had a crush on him anyway.

Oh the 80’s…the decade when most people were confused about this man’s sexuality and gender:

Yes, The 80’s…the decade that turned out one of the best punk bands known to man

The 80’s, when I had no Idea what Cyndi Lauper was singing about in her song “she bop” but I sure did like the beat.

“She’s so unusual”!

The 80’s, when Michael Jackson was still black.

What a DECADE!!
Just imagine, we can listen to 80’s music all night long! Colin can tell us stories of his youth as a teenager in the 80’s. We can play pictionary and talk like valley girls! “oh my gawd, like totally awesome”!

It’s just a thought.

Ok....This babe (yeah right) who was a teen in the 80's wants to go if Rachel, Trish, and Emily would allow me. I could tell stories just like Collin. I would love to go retro again! I am dying to buy a can of aqua net. I have been fighting the urge for years...but this would give me the perfect excuse! I think that is a great idea for a party. You could run all those 80's movies on the TV as well. Like the ones with Molly Ringwald. You guys always do the coolest things. Like gag me with a spoon I am trying to get an invite....How lame!

by the way, Stephanie (the person who posted above me) is my sister. I just did not want you to think she was some random stranger wanting to come to the party.

I have so many 80's comments that I don't have time to write them. I might actually venture up to Austin for such a party ( I don't give a f if I'm invited). I do have a dress up box, you know. I really have two, one foe clothes and one for accessories. -Amy

Ohmigawd, like seriously. If my roomies are in, I am all about an 80s party. Looks like most likely it will be October 7, so pencil it in. Stephanie and Amy, you are most definitely invited! Sarah, maybe we could perform the dance we made up to that "When the Children Cry" song. HA! I'll let you all know when the final decision has been made! - Rachel

Ok I tried the pirate name thing and let me say...I did not like! My name is Cap'n Doris Sagginsails! Now believe me at my age and after three kids I have noticed the sails starting to sag, but must I be reminded of it?
