Roth vs. Hagar

I don't know if I have ever mentioned this before, but I am an eighties fanatic. I have a ridiculously in-depth knowledge of movies, TV, and film from the 1980s. This comes in quite handy when playing trivia at a bar, or naming songs heard in TV commercials.

A few days ago, His Royal Fabulousness mentioned that Van Halen is touring again and that tickets go on sale soon. I then managed to totally forget this fact until I heard "Panama" on the radio, on the way home from school. This is definitely one of my favorites, because I am firmly on the David Lee Roth side of the Hagar/Roth debate.

I won't lie. I love hair bands. This comes mostly from the influence of my older sister growing up, but has stayed consistent throughout adulthood. No joke, KG and I have seen Poison, Motley Crue, Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Dokken, and several others live. I am extremely tempted to buy tickets to see Van Halen and add them to the ticket stub collection.

Any other closet hair metal fans out there? Since it is de-lurking week (thanks Mel at Stirrup Queens), take this as an opportunity to tell me who you are and if you dig the latex and big hair in comments.

In other news:
- Still in beginning stages of progress report writing, which will kick into high gear Friday afternoon
- Day 3 of Lupron
- Yes, I did today's injection myself too! I found my big girl panties!

  1. I love 80's music! Everything from journey and def leopard to the soft rock of lionel ritchie. :)

  2. Congrats on doing your injections yourself...I still can't seem to bring myself to do it. :(

  3. It took 2 IUI/inject cycles to get the nerve! That and coupled with a morning when I had no choice.

  4. Oh yes! I am a huge 80's music fan! Any and all of it! My Hubby thinks it is funny when he comes home and I am rocking out to the 80's station and is shocked that I know the words to everything.

    Congrats on doing the injection yourself! So brave!

  5. What a great soundtrack to get injections to!

  6. GnR rules. Aerosmith too. Oh, and Poison. LOL.

  7. Love the t-shirt. I should get that one for my husband. He cringes with the thought of giving me an injection. I've taken the needle out of his hand more than once and done it myself he was shaking so bad. He just doesn't like the idea of inflicting pain on me.

    I love the 80's music. That decade had some of the best sound! And the movies were better too...Back To The Future!!!

  8. Oh, the wonderful, crazy, ugly 80's! :-)
    Hair metal rocks!

    Oh, and I don't think I will get my husband to do my injections. He's too much afraid of hurting me, as well. Wuss ;-) I'm afraid I'll have to de-wuss myself...

  9. Totally with you on the love for hair metal. I've seen Cinderella, Poison, Skid Row and Winger in concert...gotta love the 80's

  10. Someone who is just a few days ahead of me in my cycle AND Van Halen? Glad I found this blog. :) Good luck to you!


Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!
