OMW....I so remember the banana clips.....made you look like you had a squirrels tail on the back of your head! Mine was HUGE! lol

Dawn said...

I forgot all about Love's Baby Soft. That used to be my favorite. I was a BIG Jordache jean fan!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

Hmm,never tried mustard pretzels.
Hey I don't eat fruit much either, I have to make it into shakes or fruit crumble (breaky today) in order to eat it. Though I do better with summer fruit.
Loves baby soft, now that takes me back. i used to wear Babe in grade 8, that's sorta the same thing no?

Olivia said...

that was a good one!

Doris & Dan said...

Banana clips are bad! That is one fad that needs to remain dead.

Keep smilin!

LaLa said...

Once when I was younger and dumber I tasted a little Love's Baby Soft..I thought if it smelled good it must taste good..take my word for it..it DOESN'T...ha ha

Thanks for the list .. I was tagged too..gotta get that up..

tracy said...

Aha, I forgot all about the 'banana comb'!

a&mg said...

Ah, banana combs....what were we all thinking? I was so thrilled when I received one in each color of the rainbow as a gift once. I was so cool, haha.

I wouldn't wear spandex anymore either. I don't think it stretches that far.

Roy and Lori said...

I wear jeans with lycra. So soft.

Your jordaches are my jordaches.
