This week's fun facts: since I'm going to my (gulp) 20-year class reunion this weekend, I thought it would be neat to look back in time at what was big (hair, of course) in 1989...
Like a Prayer
Rockin' In the Free World
Bust a Move
Look Who's Talking
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
The Little Mermaid
Driving Miss Daisy
Major News Events
Berlin Wall Falls
Exxon Valdez Spills Oil in Alaska
Ring Around Neptune Discovered
Chinese Students Killed in Tiananmen Square
Ayatollah Khomeini Dies
Clear and Present Danger (Tom Clancy)
The Dark Half (Stephen King)
Daddy (Danielle Steel)
Caribbean (James Michener)
The Satanic Verses (Salman Rushdie)
And, since I'm a child of the 80s, I was brought up on John Hughes' brilliant adolescent-angst movies, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Some Kind of Wonderful among them. Very sad that he's passed away.
What about you? Remember where you were/what you were doing 2 decades ago?
