When I Grow Up I'm Going To Marry MacGyver

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and got happy and/or drunk and dressed up in scary outfits. M and I went to a party with a 1980’s theme. At first I was a little worried about finding suitable clothes and stuff, I was like 4 years old in the 80’s, but luckily Muschu came shopping with me and we found the ugliest cutest black mini ruffle skirt with gold specks on it. Hot pink tights, huge hair and nasty makeup and I totally looked the part.

We had a great time at the party, but I was a little sad that we didn’t get to dress up in scary costumes and scare the crap out of little kids. The 80’s theme was fun and all, but we were about as threatening as Switzerland. My friend Zelma looked gorgeous, though. She should definitely dress up in her 80’s wear more often.

But I have to tell you, the best part of the weekend wasn’t the Halloween thing. It was the fact that I got dad to screw on Steve’s new license plate! Steve looks great now, plates in all the right places. Almost like new (if it were 1995). And then M and I channeled MacGyver. No, we didn’t defuse a bomb with shoe string, a piece of bubble gum and a paper clip. We got down and dirty in true MacGyver fashion and changed the tires from my pretty summer tires to badass studded winter tires, using only a jack lift, a wrench and a screwdriver. The screwdriver wasn’t entirely necessary, but we figured more tools would make us more efficient. And MacGyver would definitely have used the screwdriver. Or a rusty nail. I’m not sure if it made us more efficient or not, but we did manage to change the tires. Steve and I are officially ready for winter. And tomorrow M will start growing the mullet. MacGyver rules. *


  1. OMG the mainstay of the 80's. The mullet. You have to do the ultra ratty mullet with the curl on the top and the stringy hair at the bottom.

    I loved the 80's. Don't care to relive them, but leg warmers and slouchy sweatshirts with the collar cut out and tights are the shit.

  2. I love leg warmers and slouchy sweatshirts! I'm sure if I wore them often enough I could even convince M that they're sexy...

  3. Hey, who's saying I don't find them attractive on you already now, dear? :-)
