You Say It's Your Birthday...

Driving home tonight, I went through an area of town that I lived in as a kid, and remember being on the bus where Johnny Jackson used to live. I had a crush on Johnny, we were in kindergarten together. He was blond, blue-eyed, gregarious, and adorable. I remember the school bus pulling up in front of his house, and he stood holding the garage door up on his head.


I'm pretty sure a car like this was in the driveway.




Does anyone else know why I look like I'm posing for Maxim? No? Me either.

Anyhoozle, I had a nice little moment of nostalgia going there, on this, my birfday. Thought I'd share it with you.

What I REALLY wanted to share was a scanned in photo of me in 9th grade ROCKING a Duran Duran mullet, but alas, our scanner isn't working, so instead, you get this, Rod Stewart's Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, the very first 45 I ever bought. At K Mart. Not quite sure why my mom was letting me buy this record, but lucky for me she did.



And lucky for ALL of us that video is on the interwebs for all of eternity. I'm pretty sure Rod weighs less than I do in that video. I had no idea Ron Jeremy was his drummer, and is it just me or did it look like there was more chemistry between Rod and the Micky Dolenz-looking bass player than the girl who was working that straw like it was her JOB...

Shirt: Wal Fart. It's true.
Skirt: F21
Shoes: Not wearing any
Jurreys: Target, The Wal

Merci!
