Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear dear family.

80′s Summer Fashion: Jams

In honor of the last big weekend of summer, I thought it appropriate to take a look back at some 80's summer style. Of course you'll have the cut-off jeans, the off the shoulder shirts- but peeps wore those pretty much all year round, right? But what was specific to summer at a  certain point in the 80s? Oh right-- jams. Those long-ish, crazy colored, awful shorts dudes wore.

It’s Official: Bert and Ernie are Just Friends

As a kid born in the 80's, deprived of cable television (Yeah Mom and Dad, still giving you grief about that) Sesame Street was one of the only shows I remember watching. I learned my numbers from The Count and marveled at Cookie Monster's insatiable appetite. But I never once, ever, thought Bert and Ernie might be, uh... more than friends.

So I was surpised to learn of the recent debate going  on over the sexual orientation of the two puppets.

Brush up on Your 80s Slang

A few weeks ago my friends and I had a day at the beach. It was lovely, but the weather is not what I'm going to remember. Or the great tan I got. Or where we went to dinner. What I'm going to remember is how we entertained ourselves. As a birthday present a few weeks prior, my older brother gave me a set of flash cards. Flash cards? At the beach? What am I, some kind of nerd? Well, these aren't  just any flash cards. They are for learning urban slang.
