Stuff Portrait Friday- 80's Flashback

Picture of me from the 80's:

This is me circa 1981. See, even then I was into flashing people.
Please feel free to dig the Wonder Woman Underoos and the corduroy pants.

Something from the 80's that I won't give up:

This is me circa 1989. I'm "Hangin' Tough" with Donnie Whalberg from New Kids On The Block. I fucking love them. If you make fun of them, I will cut you.

My favorite book from the 80's is Green Eggs and Ham. I know it was first published in 1960, but I got it in 1980 and I'm still diggin' it. If you haven't read it, then we can't be friends.

My favorite movie from the 80's is Dirty Dancing. I probably have seen it about 300 times. I made the husband watch it before I would marry him.

Nobody puts Baby in the corner.

Green Eggs and Ham ~ GREAT BOOK! I think I still know all the words by heart (Ok, I don't think I do, I KNOW I do!)

Cool picture of you and Donnie, but you both look so pissed off. Or is that the "hangin' tough" look you guys were going for?

I love the wonder woman underoos. I hope you recover fast from the back injury.

dear god you are the coolest 80's person EVER.

I always had a thing for Marky Mark even though I was born in the 80's. You know he has a third nipple?

Commented by Blogger Ern:

I LOVE Dirty Dancing! I have probably seen that movie more times than any other except Dead Poets Society. Sweet.

(And why doesn't Bucky's comment surprise me?)

I hope your back gets much better very soon. I'm praying for a miraculous, spontaneous healing. You might not believe in them. I don't believe they happen very often, but what the hell, it's worth a shot, right?

FUCK! I fucking love Donnie! God, he was my favorite. So fucking hot. And Dirty favorite movie of all fucking time.
Great stuff!

I LOVE the Wonder Woman underoos! So totally cool!

Torrie. You rock my world.

Now. If you had a pic of yourself in the underoos with Donnie, you would surely not be of this earth.

Torrie, you are THE SHIT! That picture with Donnie is the best thing I've seen so far. Amazing. NKOTB 4Eva!

This post is appropos in so many ways. I own Dirty Dancing, and make Joe sit through the final dance scene whenever the mood hits me. And I am watching the Sexiest TV moments on Bravo, and they just showed a scene from the movie there.
Then there's the WonderWoman underwear. I had matching top and bottoms and somewhere exists a pic of me wearing them.
Not to mention that I knew the words to every New Kids single. Though I never met any of them.

You have a picture with Donnie! You are my idol!

Commented by Blogger Nilbo:

What, you all shared the same underpants? Did everybody get to use them on a certain day?

The fact that you actually got to fondle each of the New Kids on their Blocks does a lot to make them suck slightly less for me than they did when I had to endure two pre-teen girls blasting "Step by Step" on my stereo, which was perfectly capable of playing real music. Slightly less.

And Bucky, I can't post pictures of who I was doing in the '80's, either. but it's a good bet she wasn't wearing Wonder Woman underoos. At least, not after the first few minutes.

WonderWoman, NKOTB, and Dirty Dancing. Wanna trade lives for a bit? It will be fun, I promise. You can meet Brennen and Hunter. One day they will be famous, and you can say you knew them when....

NKOTB... love them and was so happy when Jordan was on the Sureal Life.
Mhm, I watch the sureal life. I pop popcorn and watch the sureal life and if anyone bugs me I make the hubby take the kids elsewhere.
Who cares if I TIVO it, I must not miss a second.

And Direty Dancing is one of my favorite movies also.
I loved Jennifer Grey (before the nosejob.. like, what the hell was she thinking?"

Dude, are you wearing a headband?

Cause that's hot.

Commented by Blogger Bente:

I forgot to ask; do you have a photo with Joe? Joe was my favorite!

10:47 PM 
Commented by Blogger Kate:

I am so totally jealous. I had 29 New Kids t-shirts, I had the sleeping bag, the bed comforter.. you name it, I had it. Hey Bente, my favorite was also Joe. I spent 5 years writing I love Joey on everything I owned, and then I married a guy named Joe. Weird huh?

1:01 AM 
Commented by Blogger Torrie:

Bente and Kate, Joey was my favorite too.
I have a whole photo album with pictures of them, but I'm having trouble finding it. When I do I'll post some Joey pictures.
