standin' tall – on the wings of my dreamby
If you haven’t noticed already, the 80s are “back”. Not necessarily in good way (come on, leggings? Why not go all out and break out the neon slouch socks!), they’re back in a re-hashed, ‘oh i remember that’ kinda way.
There’s a consumer focus on my generation. We are becoming parents (not me – don’t worry mom!) so the toys on store shelves are appealing to us as much as the kids. Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Kids etc. A leathery Hulk Hogan is wrestling again (when did this happen?) and Joey McIntye shows up on ‘Dancing withthe Stars‘ (every girl at some point was probably imaging herself married to him by now).
So here’s my question, you’ve got the popular Growing Pains and Who’s the Boss with the catchy opening theme music that everyone remembers, but what about the lesser-known shows that I KNOW people watched but barely talk about … (or even want to remember :p). Drop a name, lyrics to a theme… try me, it’ll make me smile.

Reminds me of Kindergarten.

I was thinking about Alf the other day… I was never really into it but there were MEGA Alf fans and I have *no* idea why??

I have to say youtube has saved me from boredom induved lunacy at work many a lonely night. I love searching the funny commercials or weird people dancing or even checking out clips from shows I’ve missed or music videos I’ve yet to see.
