A few weeks ago when my niece and sister were visiting we watched Pretty In Pink, which I had just bought thinking that it may be something Lil Petunia would like. Well, all four of us enjoyed the movie so much! My teenage niece kept asking throughout the movie--"Did you all really dress like that back then??" to the point that we were laughing so hard we were in tears.
The Psychedelic Furs performed the title song "Pretty In Pink" and my sister actually hung out with the band back in the 80's when they would visit New Orleans. Every time they would come to town, they would call my sister and her friends and ask them to please cook for them (Gumbo, Jambalaya, Red beans & rice)! My sister & her friends would go pick up the band at their hotel and bring them back to her friend's parents' house where The Furs would have such a great time eating, drinking, and laying around on the sofas, that one time they were in big trouble with their manager for showing up 2 hours late for a show!
Just that evening I had been telling my niece that her mom had had quite the social life back in the day, and my niece did not believe it.
After hearing this story, my niece said "MOM! What else do I not know about you??" hee hee
Anywhoo, I just pre-ordered these 2 on Amazon. Can't wait to watch them again, too!
