What inspires you? So many things actually, but today… 1980s movies.
The music, the costumes, the Molly Ringwald. It’s pretty much what every day with me is about.
I was so happy to draw this pretty in pink inspired doodle!
This is the second in the my office as John Hughes movie.
My friend Mimi is always giving me advice, and listening to my romantic foibles that sound like only John Hughes could create.
Here we are as Andie and Iona… and I’m pretty sure I’m telling her about that cute guy who’s always staring at me…
But when he talks to me our conversations are always awkward and mostly about chicken.
Okay, so usually I am not a fan of the ad’s that pop up in my facebook. Because I don’t need things like wedding monopoly or who I could make a baby with.
But today on this glorious Friday, I logged onto facebook and saw this:
My reaction was… I do love Jake Ryan! And I did just watch “Sixteen Candles” last night in a delirious heat stupor! And while watching it I said… “Damn, I never get tired of seeing him in that sweater vest…”
But, nah… I don’t really want a shirt.
I’ll be making some doodles now.
I am so ready to see “Take Me Home Tonight.”
This week I already watched “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton,” and had fond memories of when Arlene and I feigned her straightness with pictures of Josh Duhamel’s Tad Hamilton. Also I just remembered I’m never watching “In Good Company” again, that was lame…
Okay, back to the story at hand. See this music video for the movie take me home tonight… it’s full of 1980s movie reference gems.
Enjoy it, I still can’t decide if my fav. Michael J. Fox reference is Teen wolf or Marty McFly??
I feel like this week has been the “unofficial handsome man week”… As I have another handsome man post going on.
So I was watching “Sixteen Candles” last night… which is not much of a surprise.
And I just needed to make an important update:
Jake Ryan is still handsome.
And do us all a favor.
This song is in my head. Mayhaps it should be in yours.
I am so sad for the loss of John Hughes
I learned a lot of things in life from his movies including the following:
Jake Ryan is delicious
Always know who wears the pants in your family
Lying can be fun
he creeps me out… sorry Judd
stay away from bohunks
everyone loves John Cusak
The Donger is Awesome
Family Vacations may kill you
Yes, I do want Diane Sawyer limited edition earrings… Thank you Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Chicago is where dreams come true
why not to use aftershave
and the love of vests
Thank you John Hughes, for all the wonderful things you have taught us… And all the wonderful movies that people will adore forever…the world will not be the same without you.
