Throwback Thursday – 1987

I’m in the process of revamping and rethinking some things on my blog. I did my first Throwback (Flashback Friday) post a few weeks ago and truly enjoyed it.

It gave me an opportunity to think, focus and reflect on happier times in my life. Not that I’m not happy now. Perhaps I should say a more carefree time in my life.

You know the time when all you had to worry about is if that boy (or girl) liked you and if you wanted to buy something you went to mom and dad and asked for it or the money to go buy it.

Yeah, that time.

Sooo, I’ve decided to make this a regular feature. And, here we go. Book: Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

I love working at a bookstore. It brings joy to my heart when I can help someone find the book they’re looking for, like a 10-year-old boy looking for Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet. And when I put the book in his hot little hands his eyes lit up and he had a smile that went from ear-to-ear. I read Hatchet in college when I was taking my education classes and loved it. Fell in love with Young Adult literature all over again.

Movie: Spaceballs

Love Mel Brooks and his campy humor. And Spaceballs has a wiley cast of characters and some pretty ridiculous scenes.

Yogurt teaching LoneStar

Combing the desert

and Pizza the Hut who actually put me off pizza for a while

This is one of my favorite scenes – “Your Schwartz is as Big as Mine”. Um, okay.

Songs: Bad by Michael Jackson and Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley

This was a tie. I just couldn’t make up mind.

Michael Jackson’s Bad was at the height of his excessive buckle and zipper use and crouch grabbing. And I believe the second time he danced his way out of a fight. What the frickity frack. If only. . .  But I have to admit this was perhaps my favorite Michael Jackson time.

And as much as we would like to forget Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up you can’t. I mean, after all, the interwebs won’t let us. How many times have you clicked on a video and got Rick Rolled? Well, I’ve lost count. And each time it happens I end up giving a big belly laugh after a few expletives.
