Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

When I read my horoscope this morning: (It is quite possible that lately you have relied on your vivid imagination to pull you out of tough situations, Vivienne. When the real world begins to get you down, you always have your world of dreams and fantasies to turn to. On this day, however, there is a stubborn blast of realism that might be bringing you down and keeping you there. Unless you have prepared for this grounding force, you could have trouble lifting off again.) I really started to worry. I admit, my sense of humor feels like it has been lagging a bit these days and wasn't sure how to pull myself out of the funk I've been in. I don't even know what jarred my brain today and made me think about the days when I was desperately seeking ways of emulating Madonna and or Cyndi. Then I thought about all those hours at the mall, Merry Go Round, Orange Julius, Chik-fil-A waffle fries, buying the latest Duran Duran album or Wham! records... anyway, I've already rambled on entirely too long... I just hope this makes others laugh, we can all use it from time to time :D

Oh, the title to this painting is Debi and Marla waiting outside the mall for Marla's mom to pick them up, fall of 1985.

This is so excellent and brings back so (too) many memories. :)

I still have my buttons (David Bowie, Madonna, Cyndi) but I think all my rubber bracelets deteriorated over the years.

oh wow!! You always hit a nerve with everyone hehe. What a great piece...and what i love about it is that without even looking into the painting it conjours up so many thoughts, feelings and emotions! Great work :)
