One came two days ago when she sent me the following e-mail:
"Happy 90210 day to my best good friend! I just noticed that it is 9.02.10. And you are the only person who would appreciate it like I did. Its early and it gave me the giggles! And made me want black tie cheesecake........"
Randi and I watched 90210 like it was our religion. Every Wednesday night we would go to Olive Garden and get soup, salad, and bread sticks to go (along with two pieces of black tie cheesecake). We'd take it back to Randi's house and watch 90210 and Melrose. Yes, we're that old. We felt a special connection to the 90210 gang because they, like us, graduated high school in 1993. Ah, memories! Good times people, good times!
As if that wasn't enough of a trip down memory lane for one week, I got an e-mail from her this morning with the subject: Are you wearing overalls? I wasn't sure what to make of it and I thought she was asking if I was wearing overalls today (I am not by the way). Then I saw that the e-mail came with two attachments. And that is when I fell out of my desk chair laughing. Pictures. From 1998. And yes, I am in fact wearing overalls:
Those are my Express overalls that I remember well and wore often. I wish I still had them because wouldn't they be awesome for a 90's party sometime...or perhaps a square dance. I am dancing in the picture, that's not how I stand. Nice moves Jenn, nice moves!
And just to top it off, she sent one of Shaun and I together.
There are so many things wrong with this photo but it made me laugh so hard. First, I am wearing some sort of name tag. I do not remember this night (I'm guessing drinks were involved) and have no idea why I would need a name tag (we were at Randi and James' house). That shirt doesn't show off my overalls enough. The stripes take away from the genius that is the overalls. My hair? I won't even go there. Then there is the goofball standing behind me. Yes folks, that's the man I married. In fact, we got engaged just a few short months after this photo was taken. What can I say? He is a sucker for overalls.
I love you Randi! Thanks for giving me a HUGE laugh today!
