Kirk and Corey, Together Forever

Last December Leland and I had an 80’s party for my friend Siren’s 30th birthday.

Siren gave me some names of people she wanted me to invite and as I was going over the list I saw that two very important names were missing.

Kirk Cameron and Corey Haim.

I knew we couldn’t have an 80’s party without those honored guests. They just had to be there.

Ebay to the rescue. In just a few minutes I was able to purchase old posters of Kirk and Corey. When the night of the party came, Kirk and Corey were taped up in my living room above the couch.

It is nearly 8 months later and Kirk and Corey are still on the wall in my living room. It just has never occurred to me that I should take them down. They have been the most amazing conversation piece ever and I don’t think I can part with them. In fact, I think I need to add to my collection. Kirk and Corey have been hanging out there for so long that I think they need some new company. I have been considering adding Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT as he was known when I was young), and Rider Strong from Boy Meets World. Who else do you think I should add to my collection of childhood heartthrobs that adorns my wall?


For those of you who are interested/wondering/concerned, I will return with regularly scheduled Hump Day Hangover posts next week. I have not forgotten and have not given up, there just haven’t been many awesome stories to post. But I going camping this weekend for 4 days and I am sure that having sex while camping and being dirty, smelly and covered in mosquito repellant will yield some funny events.

Fred Savage!

Definitely!

Stephanie Faris said...

Corey Haim...that would make me sad. So tragic, how he turned out. But I had a mega-crush on Kirk Cameron at one point!

Intense Guy said...

How about that dude that was in the Disney show with Hillary Duff? Lizzie McQuire - Adam Lamberg?

Or even Opie (Ron Howard) from his Mayberry days...

..or Emilio Estevez (but only if I get to look at Aly Sheedy)...

:)

Take care,

Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell. :-) Or AC Slater if you like the muscle type guy.

The irony of those two being hung up together is too much!

Sara said...

I'm with Val on John Cusack.

Perhaps from Say Anything or even Better Off Dead.

Mmmm... I'm in my own special place right now.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

ha! i love that they just sit above your couch, looking down on everyone from above. like 80's jesuses.

i'm pretty sure, however, that you're missing another pretty important corey!

Dual Mom said...

80's music is the best....ever. I just aged myself, didn't I?

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

I drank more booze during the 80's than I did the 60's and 70's put together..i remember very little.

Penelope said...

Kirk Cameron is awesome (I loved him in Fireproof) and he looks the same as he did back then! When I was little though, I had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio on his show, lol...Corey never did it for me (sorry-and running to hide now :) :) :) lol)

RN Mama said...

Kirk Cameron, be still my heart. He is one person that is still as dead sexy right now as he was in the 80's!

You definitely need to add Rider Strong, for the fact that he is all kinds of hot, and his name is fabulous.

carma said...

I'd add Rick Springfield. Very hot back in the day.

Kim said...

I LOVE JTT! Seriously I used to have a poster of him hanging over my bed! *Hanging my head in shame!* Whatever happened to him?!

heartinhand said...

Um, DURAN DURAN! And Cory Feldman. Anthony Michael Hall. And for girls, what would the 80s have become if it weren't for Molly Ringwald?!
