how to reclaim your 80s childhood

This week, I have mainly been reminiscing about the past, which, as we all know, is a foreign country.

Specifically, I have been watching Top Gun in all its immense glory, and enjoying the epic spectacle of Tom Cruise and Kelly Whateverhernameis playing a classic love story. Did you know, trivia fans, that 

The love scene between Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis was filmed after initial test screenings. Moviegoers complained that there was no love scene, so the company obliged. McGillis, however, had already dyed her hair darker for her next film. This is why the scene is tinted blue. Also noticeable as a subsequent shoot due to the longer length of Tom Cruise’s hair (particularly in front).

Thanks, IMDB

Also, we have been shrinking crisp packets in the oven.

next to an orange, for reference 🙂

So many funz. So many impractical uses! Keyrings! Earrings! 

What do you mean, you’ve never shrunk crisp packets in the oven? Given the amount of debate generated by this activity, I’m beginning to think this is the true division in the world.

It’s not whether you’re male or female, slave or free, black or white. Nope, it’s whether you’ve shrunk crisp packets in the oven.
