Back in the day, every Tuesday night at Emerald City was “80’s” night. So, in keeping with tradition, I give to you, vintage Luggage.
Feast your eyes on these two! Yours truly on the left, and to show I was not alone at being a complete dork, my good friend Shari is on the right. No, I did not perm my hair. Yes, Shari is holding a rubber chicken. It’s funny, right? And…YES…we’re still friends.. (At the moment anyway!)
This was a failed attempt at a United Colors of Benetton advertisement. You remember the ads, crazy kids posed casually in a white room in various knitwear… Some of the kids had mohawks (shocking!), some of them were just weird. Most of the time they were holding flags (I’ll spare you the pictures we took posing with the Union Jack) But they did one thing well; sell overpriced sweaters.
I can’t remember anything else about this photo. Shari probably drove the Cutlass over, we probably had fish tacos after school that day…I can’t imagine we did anything else with those hair dos!!
I have been blurfing so much! I decided to give you all a little piece of Luggage today because I am frustrated that so many blogs are incomplete. While I completely understand you may not what to divulge secret information for fear of identity theft, is there any harm in listing where in the hell you are? I see your house….but crimany, what state are you in? Until my hit map can mark the ISP location and your user name… it would be nice to know who I am blurfing with. No harm, no foul.
