A-Z Challenge: E - Eurythmics, E.T. and Elastic Belts






Back with another day of A-to-Z Challenge, brought to you today by the letter E.




We kick it off with the Eurythmics, another band I didn't love in the actual eighties, but do now.  Sweet Dreams is great, but I like Would I Lie to You even better.  :D

And then there's this iconic movie:


 Ah, E.T.  I still have the slightest memory of when I first went to see it in the theater with my mom and Aunt Paul (RIP), and what I remember is that my little sister peed all over Aunt Paula's lap when E.T. first came out of the wood shed.  Ah, memories.  I still tease her about that.

And then there were these oh-so-fashionable elastic belts - and I used to have this exact same one: same color and style. It was typically worn with a white shirt over leggins, or one of those horrible hourglass ruffly dresses.  I found this pic over on etsy if you're just dying for some old fashions.  LOL.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I never did the belt thing, but I did sport the big hair and lineman shoulder pads!

  3. I still love Eurythmics now, and E.T was a brilliant film. I didn't have one of those belts, but I do remember older kids having them and thinking they were SO.COOL!

  4. Pretty sure I had a thing for Annie Lennox. She seemed kind of scary in a hot and sexy way.

  7. I liked Eurythmics then and still do now. And I'm so glad ET didn't have the same effect on me!

    Have fun with A to Z!

  8. I liked the Eurythmics too. I was in the dark the summer E.T. came out and on the flight home, everyone was talking about this E.T. thing everywhere and finally I asked someone on the plane what an E.T. was and learned it was this really great movie. :)
