sharon, lois & bram

I’m a child of the 80’s, I had crimped hair, I wore shiny pink lycra, I had aNKOTB t-shirt,and I watched a lot of cheesy television.

For whatever reason while discussing something with manfriend I had a random thought of Sharon, Lois & Bram pop into my head.   Unless you were under the age of 10 in the 80’s you probably have noooo idea who they are.  They were a singing troupe for kids.   They sang the Skinamarinkedinkedink song and wore peasant skirts.  I’m sure they had greater contributions to society than that, but that’s my takeaway.  Sharon, Lois and Bram-ness:

The random SL&B memory opened the door to many other 80’s cheese tv that I had locked away in my mind.   Anyone recall Today’s Special with the creep old puppet that looked like Walter Mathau?

How about Square One?  I was always a fan of Mathnet (yup I was a nerd way back then too.)

The one 80’s show that actually makes me cringe and want to run out of a room screaming would have to be Pinwheel.  One winter break we had a babysitter that would lock all the kids she was watching in a room while she would take hours long baths and the only form of entertainment was Pinwheel on a never ending loop.    The opening credits are basically my kryptonite:


Any other amazing 80’s shows you’d like to share?

I feel a bit cliche

It’s the night before Thanksgiving, and while society seems to scream GO OUT TO Asatc_wine2 CROWDED BAR AND SEE PEOPLE YOU DON’T LIKE WHILE PAYING TOO MUCH FOR DRINKS…I’ve kind of shunned the idea.   I love a good drink, I love going out every now and again…but on this eve of Thanksgiving I’d rather be plopped on my couch laying low.   Sadly an impending snowstorm took my couch dwelling buddy off to his homeland…but the solo couch dwelling does have it’s positives.   I’ve caught up on my old episodes of the West Wing on Bravo (I missed the show during it’s original run)  and now I’ve got Sex and the City on and a glass of wine close on hand.   Wouldn’t it be fabulous if someone just killed two birds with one stone and made a Sex and the City wine?   I would SO buy a Sex and the City wine…you could even make different varities for each character:  Carrie Champagne, Miranda Merlot, Samantha Sancerre, Charlotte Chablis…ohhhh the possibilities!!!

Oh dear, now I’ve wandered into a dangerous land, the glass of wine has been paired with Sex and the City the Movie….damn.   I love watching the opening credits, ahhhh it is such a beautiful thing, at least from a producer/editor/whatever it is I do with video person’s standpoint.   I know a lot of people…ok a lot of Sex and the City fans were a little let down by the movie but I adore it.  The only thing I dislike is the fact that Samantha moved to Hollywood.   Not only does that go against the independent nature of her character (to essentially move for a man) but it goes against her love for the city!   But I digress…it’s a lovely little movie to enjoy!

I’ll keep on dreaming about the creation of the Sex and the City wine while I enjoy the movie.  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!
