These shoes were the first thing that I begged and pleaded and cried and pouted for... Yo-Yo's. They are actually kind of ugly; however, when my mom finally gave in (toward the end of the fad when she found them for 75% off the already low clearance price) and bought them for me, I wore them with everything... pants, shorts, dresses, skirts, my pajamas.... I was so hot in these shoes! NOT!
OK.... this is a great movie! I loved it then and still love it today! Confession... I also like Grease 2 - please don't hold it against me! Michele Pfiefer has never been better. Here portrayal of a pink lady was worthy of an Oscar... and Michael... with his foreign accent... I was crushing!!!
Had to add this as it is the only thing that I really really wanted that I never had... can you believe the nerve of my parent's for not giving into my every whim and desire? I can't! This might be the cause of all of my underlying personality issues... Could be!!! I could just see myself (like the Brady Bunch kids that had a Pogo Stick) jumping and jumping and jumping. I knew I could be good enough to go to the Olympics... but my parents just did not understand. It is like unrequited love...
Did I miss anything? Let me know what your favorite was when you were a kid ... before IPODs!
** Gazillion... a term that means much more than billions or Even trillions... as in "If the current stimulus plan passes in the Senate, we are going to leave our children a Gazillion dollars in debt".
