Perfect Movies for an Eighties Party

My daughter asked me about having an eighties party. She was watching the show "Outrageous Kid's Parties" where they were having an Eighties party. The people on the show spent $30,000 on that party. My daughter even thinks that is stupid.

So she wants to throw a simple eighties themed get together. Luckily for her, her Mamma knows all about eighties cheese! I wouldn't mind having an eighties movie night myself. (man we are so . . .WHITE!)  A simple party would have to have a cheesy eighties movie with like, pizza and coke. Every party in the eighties had Coke and Pizza, at least where I was from! Here are my picks for the perfect eighties movie- remember I was only 13 at the end of the 80's so my movie choices may be for younger viewers- what are yours?

5. TEEN WITCH- complete with a rad rap battle and totally awesome music like "I wanna be the most popular girl!" I wanted to dress like Teen Witch  so bad! (after she got her popular girl powers)

4. MANNEQUIN- The best dance montage EVAR!! My brothers and I used to dance along. We watched Mannequin on the VCR on a regular basis.

3. FRIGHT NIGHT- My mom had no idea I watched this. I was about 9 and I was hanging out with my older cousin. (it's sad that she passed away recently) She hid my eyes during the scary parts. I watched the movie again recently and it wasn't scary at all.

2. THE WORST WITCH- A movie about a school for witches long before Harry Potter was even thought of.  Tim Curry makes it worth watching it.

1. GOONIES!!! HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…
