Thursday 13 v. 57 - You Answer 80s one

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Thirteen Questions About the 80s for You to Answer
I freely admit I stole the idea for the question 13 from Goofy Girl. She's brilliant that way. So here are some questions for you to answer so I can get to know you better. My answers in italics.
  1. Do you prefer Michael Jackson or Madonna? Then? MJ. Now? Madonna.
  2. Rubik's Cube - Solve it, toss it, or cheat by removing the stickers? I cheated, and made it unsolvable ever again.
  3. If one trend came back, would you rather it be leg warmers or jelly shoes? Leg warmers - jelly shoes were stinky and blister inducers.
  4. Duran Duran - Who's cuter? Simon, John Taylor, Nick or Andrew? Then? John Taylor. Now he's got a bald spot.
  5. Better Movie? Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink? Breakfast Club
  6. Hotter Then? Anthony Michael Hall or Judd Nelson Judd Nelson
  7. Hotter Now? Anthony Michael Hall or Judd Nelson Anthony Michael Hall. Yummy!
  8. Brat Pack or Rat Pack? Rat Pack
  9. Which Cosby kid is your favorite? Theo
  10. Which Smurf is your favorite? Smurfette! She was the only girl.
  11. Ring Pops or Pop Rocks? Pop Rocks, strawberry, but not with soda pop.
  12. Safety Dance or Dancing on the Ceiling? Safety Dance, though the song makes no sense.
  13. Pac Man or Ms. Pac Man? Ms. Pac Man is da bomb!

Hmmm. . . seems like I missed a lot of the 80's by going to college. As far as Rubik's cube goes, I gave it to my little brother who could solve it pretty quickly. I was hopeless.

Darla said...

LOL! My answers are all identical to yours, except I think I liked original PacMan better. Could be that it was easier, and I liked that because I didn't play either one all that often.

Fun questions!

Katherine said...

Congratulations on your publishing! I'll go check it out next. How did last night go? Email me an update!! Theo was my favorite Cosby kid, too. I remember hearing that stupid song "Neutron Dance" a lot, too...

Jane said...

I won't even TRY to answer these questions. I was raising two boys during the eighties! But I loved reading your responses.
Thanks for dropping by my T13, shugah!

Gattina said...

I think you can't compare Madonna and Michael Jackson ! It's like comparing an apple with a pear. They are completely different and I like them both.

colleen said...

I don't remember jelly shoes. Michael Jackson used to be great (and cute before he ruined his looks). I liked Madonna too in the beginning before she started trying to look like Marilyn Monroe and I Love Jeannie. My favorite bands that came out of the 80s were The Pretenders, Tom Petty, and U2...still love them all.

1. Michael Jackson. You know, I was listening to an old Jackson 5 song this morning...and my god, the stuff his father made him sing!

check these lyrics:

Rythmetic acrobatic
She a dynamite attraction
At the drop of a coin she comes alive, yea
She knows what she's doing

She super bad now
She's here to really blow your mind
Dancing, dancing, dancing
She's a dancing machine
