It's My Birthday and I'll Have a Unibrow If I Want To

Today I'm hard at work preparing for my 1982 Junior-Senior Prom (theme: Hollywood Nights) Birthday Party Bonanza. God willing, in approximately seven hours, I will look exactly like this:

Wish me luck. Pictures to follow.

p.s. Have you guys seen the breathtaking gloriousness that is the Safety Dance music video? Definitely waste part of your Friday checking it out, if you haven't:



p.p.s.s. Wendy Brandes, your post today was scarily prescient...Did you hack my email, you saucy minx?

I don't hack your email; I just tap your phone lines. In the interest of national security, of course.

i would offer and a dance number but i am a bona fide white girl in that department, except i don't have the means or the fake I.D to get drunk and dance on tables so it's just the awkward white girl kind....

Oh how I wish I were there for that party! I would wear my best outfit from the 80's - school bus yellow jeans, raspberry tank top, big white button down with bright colored fruit, fruit earrings to match (natch!) and a fabric wrapped bangle that goes with the shirt.

AWESOME, no?

Those kind of things happened in the 80's, especially when you had lived in Catholic school girl plaid for the previous 9 years.

Thank god there are no pictures of THAT!

Much Luv and Best Wishes!
Poochie

This sounds like pretty much one of the most ridiculously fun birthday parties I've ever heard of. I adore a themed bash... and I lucked out, because my birthday is Halloween, so I always get a costume party!

Hope it's glorious...
