MOTORIN' !!!!- Toya

Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so. You know how I else I know? Because I have found an internet radio station that ONLY PLAYS POWER BALLADS!!!! Go to and go under the Rock section to hear all the big haired love songs your little heart desires. I have heard "Babe" by Styx, "Is This Love" by Whitesnake and "Give Me Something to Believe In" by Poison. All I need to hear now is "Sister Christian" and it is a done deal. By the way they have a Brat Pack radio station now that plays New Wave like New Order, Psychedelic Furs and Simple Minds. *sigh* God is love.

So Tia and I were just talking about the 80's and I don't know if the Jordan Knight show has sparked all of this nostalgia but I am doing a lot of reminsicing. Tia and I have both said that during the 80's our hair feathered better than any white girls we knew and we didn't need to go through the whole bottle of Aqua Net to get our tidal wave bangs just right. Remember them? Lifting the front of your hair with a rat tail comb to get that bang up there? I'm from Jersey so you know I had it real bad. BGLU's, even though we tried to save the ozone layer with non-aeresol hair spray, water is not our friend when it comes to relaxed hair. Tia and I can't remember the last time we had a bang. I don't even know how I would make one.

This week has been a trip. I guess with all of this reminiscing, I am dealing with the fact that I am really getting older. It is finally happening. After looking 20 for so long, I am now faced with the signs of aging and everyone elses. Sure I can clown Jordan Knight but I've seen myself without concealer and let me tell ya, it ain't pretty. It is darn near a 20 minute ritual in the morning putting my makeup on now. It's not that I wear a lot of makeup it is just that I wear strategically placed makeup. A little highliter here, some contrasting powder there...I have to admit, it is becoming somewhat of a fixation. I went to Walmart to get some foil and walked out with anti-aging wrinkle eye cream. I can't believe it has come to this.

Brad Pitt is 40. Johnny Depp, also 40. Madonna is in her 40's. Michael Jackson is darn near 50. Where did all the time go?
