There’s something to be said about retro. Retro is comforting, brings warm and fuzzy memories of simpler times where we weren’t freaking out about “Is my cell on? How many calories are in that? What the heck – I have 20bizillion things on my to-do list! Where the heck is my Starbucks?!?” and so on.
We’ve had a bit of an 80s revival here in Philly – with the Dancin’ On Air marathon and other things that are being buzzed about – and, let me tell you, the kids notice. My dear friend Heather, who we called Pickles way before Snooki from Jersey Shore tried to brand that, recently had a birthday party for her daughter Felicitie. Felicitie is a great kid, super smart and definitely a mini-Pickles. Plus, she’s quite the chef in training. I wouldn’t be surprised if she puts some of the Food Network peeps on notice and takes over their shows. Well, Felicitie isn’t one to just have any ol’ birthday party – she wanted it “80’s Themed” and the kids were to be decked out in their 80s best. I saw more neon and high hair that immediately made us flash back to our days on set, Aquanet and all.
