I had a BLAST in the past!

I had myself a flashback '80s blast last night as I treated myself to a double feature at our local summer rerun theatre and saw

9 to 5 (1980)
Working Girl (1988)

I'm not even going to bother linking for those because you have all seen those movies right!

I joined gals in action Sinda & neighbor P (Sinda and her neighbors are bookworthy -- they live in the best hood) for an early round of Indian flavored goodness at the Clay Pit before being whisked back to the time where big hair reigned supreme. WOW! Was it fun. I've always had a soft spot for Dolly Parton, but it was Joan Cusack that I had forgotten in Working Girl. I even think her hair (REAL) was bigger than Dolly's wig, if you can even believe it. And such a young Alec Baldwin too.

Paired together, they show a perfect slice of '80s (cinematic) life. Both had female underdogs getting the best of their either dumb or conniving bosses. with lots of aquanet thrown in for good measure.

I liked the pairings - it would be fun to think up other movie pairs, but I'm too tired and haven't had my coffee yet...
