Let's start a conversation! So far, people just browse around here and leave. Let's give em' somethin' to talk about. (Get it?) Someone start this conversation while I'm at my Barrelassin' kid's Barrelassin' basketball game tonight. Leave comments and I can check back in the morning. Gonna be a long night :( The good thing about a blog is, you can talk and talk all you want, but I'm gonna need someone to talk back damnit! lol. You can see from my posts what I like to talk about, but feel free to bring up whatever the hell you like!

MJ BAD 25 I JUST CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU

This was really good. Can't stop Michael Jackson now. Might even Moonwalk on a minute. Question is:  I still hip enough or am I more likely to need a new hip after I try? I'll let ya know how this works out for me.
Enjoy Barrelassers :)


RAMBO

When I was just a youngin I saw Rambo at the theater. All I ever wanted to do after that was sew up my own arm. Of course now you'd have to actually put me to sleep to give me even one stitch. Remember when him sewing his arm was the coolest thing ever in a movie?

GO HAMMER, GO HAMMER, GO!

The one thing me and my husband can always agree on is, MC Hammer. Just look, if you wanna make something go big, involve The Hammer. If you have something big, but wanna make it even bigger, get The Hammer. Call on The Hammer, and you will be rewarded! He wasn't kidding huh? All of our quality time conversations around here, somehow always come back to Hammer lol.Me and the husband are headed outside to spend the day hanging every Christmas light and decoration we have. We're bout to Turn this Mutha Out!

RIP LARRY HAGMAN

As a child I remember Dallas being the show everyone waited for all week! Even as a little girl, I, too, loved this show, although I'm sure I didn't completely understand everything. Who shot J.R.? was one of the 80's biggest mysteries! Everyone had shirts that read, "I shot J.R." The new Dallas is a great show as well, and I'm sure they'll mark his absence in a classy way.

MONSTERS OF ROCK CRUISE!?!?

Seriously, a while back I stumbled upon a link for a Monsters of Rock Cruise. The more I read, the more I couldn't believe it. It seemed as if a dream come true was right in front of me. I nearly fell out of my chair, and almost never picked my chin up off the floor. The list goes on and on. All I could think when I read Stryper was on the list was of a time around 13 years old, when they were going to appear at a mall and sign autographs.I was so excited for anyone who could drive, to hurry home and take me there! Nobody got home in time, and I was so sad. I think I may still be sad about it lol. When I read about this cruise I called my husband, and told him this is all I want for Christmas, my birthday, Valentines Day, and any other day where I should get a gift. I don't see the stars lining up with the economy in my house, but that didn't stop me from asking my husband to keep the cruise a secret so other people wouldn't buy all the tickets lol. Like he knows soooo many people he could sell out an entire cruise lol, how many people do I think he knows? Either way,somebody should go and enjoy it! Honestly, Stryper, I still believe in you :)

MILLI VANILLI

Today in 1990, Milli Vanilli was stripped of their Grammy for not singing on their (or technically, someone else's) album. The album was Girl You Know It's True. I liked them even after I found out I didn't know who I liked lol. I still wanted the same two guys to dance around and pretend they were singing those songs. Oh well, gotta blame it on somethin' blame it on the rain I guess :(

JELLY FEET


Seriously, who's big idea was it anyway to make me feel incool until I scored a pair of these?

HOPPIN' ON THE BUS WITH PAUL SIMON

Hop on the bus Gus, make a new plan stan....you know the rest. This song makes me think of being on my aunt's bed and her teaching us all the words to the song cause we thought it was so cool. It is cool, but it was even cooler then. I wasn't even in school yet, I barely remember it. For some reason the song automatically makes me think of that silly thing we used to say to our friends as kids...I'm telling on you, why?  you kicked me off the bus and made me cuss. How about this? I'm telling on you. Why? You stole my dime. drank my wine, and turned me into Frankenstein. If I was Frankenstein, why would I tell on you? Why wouldn't I jsut kick your ass for stealing my wine?

I KNOW WHERE TO GET A GOOD WAX

The OLD Karate Kid. (RALPH MACCHIO!)

CHICAGO...TWENTY 1?

Am I the only one, who as a child had an argument with an adult insisting that Chicago Twenty 1 was the name of a band instead of the name of a band's album? I'm just saying that it was very confusing for me. The dude on the radio always said that was a song from Chicago twenty 1, so naturally I thought that was the band's entire name. But, I also thought I was going to marry Michael Jackson one day, so what the hell did I know?

I'LL STOP THE WORLD, AND MELT WITH YOU, LIKE TOTALLY


BARBIE VS. JEM

Jem! Jem is truly amazing..truly truly truly amazing. That's the song me and my barrelassin' cousins would practice a million times so we could call the special number, sing it to a recording over the phone in hopes that we would win the contest. I can't remember what to grand prize was, but we really wanted to win. We also thought we actually had a chance lol. We recorded it on a cassette tape as well. We were
ridiculous! I do have to say though, Jem, really was truly amazing, when Barbie & The Rockers looked like a bunch of kids from the totally awesome movie, "Valley Girl." Which only means one thing, I'll stop the world and melt for you.
Enjoy Barrelassers

I REMEMBER YOU

I remember when all I ever wanted was to marry anyone in this picture lol

DROPPING BOMBS ON YOUR LOVER?

You dropped a bomb on me, baby, you dropped a bomb on me. I so remember standing in my grandmother's livingroom dancing to this song, circa 1982 I guess. That song still makes me wanna dance! I was very young, and I didn't understand it at all. At least now I understand that his lover wasn't actually trying to blow him up. I didn't know that then, but I didn't care. It was a catchy tune, and if some poor guy's lover had to drop a bomb on him so that I could show off some not so well planned out moves on the carpet, it was really none of my business. My only job was to break it on down.

PINK CADILLAC

Random thought. Once when I was very little, not even old enough to go to school. We were sitting in front of a hotel in a car (which I was later told, was a cadillac) and my mom and her friends kept talking about how this old car was gonna blow up anytime now. I do remember having the thought that we were gonna explode anytime inside that car, and if everyone else was okay with it, I figured it was no big deal, but it sounded like a huge deal to me! Just sayin' Barrelassers :)

BRYAN ADAMS. NOT THE SUMMER OF '69

Happy birthday to Bryan Adams. He's 53. I could listen to him all day long, wait a second.I was forced to do that once. Let me clear things up, I could listen to ALL of his music all day, but the same song? That's taking it a bit too far. When I was a teenager, me and my barrelassin' friend went to the beach with her family. One night, we found a little pool hall. As we walked in, the hottest new...
song was blaring from the jukebox, 'Everything I Do' by Bryan Adams. Very popular song, and by "popular" I mean drive a stick in your ear, and make it go away now! Don't get me wrong, we loved the song too, until an hour later when it was still playing, over and over and over. We even put money in the jukebox and paid for something else, but it never happened. Either someone madly in love had already paid for it to play until they died, or it was secretly the only song on there. I think it drove us to drinking. Too bad we put our money in that jukebox, it would've been handy when we were counting change to get some beach kid's older brother to buy us beer. It cost us just over $2.00 for a six pack of Olympia beer. I'm no hater, but I don't know what the hell Olympia beer is. Never laid eyes on that stuff again, until I looked it up to see if it still exists. It does! I imagine that stuff will survive the Apocalypse.

LITTLE PINK HOUSES, FOR ME AND JOHN MELLENCAMP :)

Little Pink Houses for me and John Cougar Mellencamp, now, John Mellencamp. This song always makes me think of the times that me and barrelassin' cousins would run through this garden throwing vegetables at eachother. And dirt clogs! How terrible for the owners of this garden. Even their own children would run through the other end and have vegetable wars with us. All the way up until we made it t...
o their backyard to meet up with them. My specific memory of their house was a scary 24 hours for me as a kid. One day while standing around in my barefeet, watching their father spray for insects all the way around the outside of his house, I was asking all sorts of questions, God only knows what I wanted to know about bug spray, but anyway, I recall him telling me "this stuff is poison. It will kill you" and explaining how we should never mess with it. Of course a moment later I felt some of the spray hit my foot. To this day I have no idea why I didn't scream and beg to be taken to a hospital for treatment, but instead I freaked out inside and ran home to die on my own. I wasn't about to die without even trying though.I went straight to the bathroom and began scrubbing my foot with soap and water as hard as I could. Again, I didn't ask one person at my house to help save my life. I would leave the bathroom for short periods of time only to return over and over again to scrub my foot some more. When I went to bed that night, I could hardly sleep because I was sure this was it. I just knew once I went to sleep, the poison would finally set in and kill me. I was certain I wasn't waking up. Needless to say, I was so happy when I woke up the.next day and eventually I must have decided I escaped death and stopped worrying about my poisoned foot. To think now that all that worrying could've been avoided if I'd only told the man at that little pink house he had just poisoned me to death.
Enjoy Barrelassers :)

BON JOVI, REVISITED

So we finally did it. I couldn't take it any longer. We broke out the never before opened Bon Jovi New Jersey album from 1989, and with some PBR and Lime-a Rita, we played it many times! Been jamming to it all night. It's still great. Just as my Barrelassin' kid told me "this doesn't even make sense" that we could put a needle on this piece of vinyl and make it play music, it dawned on me how my ...
kids would never have to remove the fuzz from a needle, like I just had to do, to make a record not skip. At most, they will wipe spit on a cd to clean it or charge their Ipods to hear the music. God forbid they ever have to hit the "record" button on a tape player or stereo to record a song from the radio station, and on top of that, time it just perfect so the Deejay isn't talking through the beginning of the song! Ahhhh, good times!
Enjoy Barrelassers:)

UP ALL NIGHT WITH SLAUGHTER

Up all night, sleep all day! This was a great song by Slaughter. It was basically our theme music as teenagers. It mostly reminds me of the time me and my barrelassin' cousin partied with our barrelassin' friend all night and had to work early the next morning. We got home just in time to change clothes and rush to work. We ran into the room, clothes flying in every direction. Dabbing makeup and brushing hair.

 I quickly realize I don't have clean work pants, so I grab the ones from the day before and put them on and off we went. That must have been the longest work day ever. So at the end of our shift, we're riding home with my barrelassin' mother, who worked with us as well. At the same time we were giving another co-worker a ride home. He was sitting in the front seat while me and my cousin sat in the back.

 She and I kept trying not to laugh at something, I have no idea what, but mom stopped at the gas station, and as I sat in the car looking at my feet, I had to focus really hard to figure out what I was looking at. I lean closer only to realize that my underwear from the day before were still in the leg of my work pants and hanging out the bottom resting on my shoe. I got my cousin's attention and showed her and from that moment, we could not control our laughter.

 Mom thought we were idiots, but we told her after he got out of the car. She thought it was funny. Later at a party with that same passenger he said he thought we were stoned and had the giggles. We let him continue thinking that. So next time you party all night before work, check your pants. There's no way to know if my drawers had been on my shoe all day at work, but it was funny as hell so I gladly accept it.

HOOKERS ON HALLOWEEN

I remember one Halloween as a kid, pre- teen, me and my Barrelassin' cousin dressed up like hookers and went to a Halloween party at a church we had never been to before, or since I should add. I had been forbidden to wear my mothers 5 thousand bangle bracelets, but of course we did anyway, she came home from work before we returned, and of course she was angry.

 I got yelled at, I felt guilty, so ...I tried to suck up by polishing the floors with Pledge, and that didn't help anyone! More trouble. I'm not really sure what the moral of this story is. Don't borrow things that don't belong to you when you're specifically told not to?Never ever polish the floors with furniture polish?

 Ironically out of all the Dennis the Menace things we did that day, I don't recall anyone ever saying " don't dress like an 11 year old hooker and crash a random church Halloween party." Doesn't mean it didn't happen, I'm just saying that's not the lesson I learned.
Hope you enjoyed your Halloween Barrelassers :)
