99 Luft Balloons? 99 Luftballons? Bald And Fat And Old.

So a friend of mine is having a party tonight that's a mini college reunion of sorts. There are going to be some people I haven't seen in years. I'm looking forward to it. I'll be sure to point out to everyone that I haven't ballooned up and I have zero traces of baldness. Then when everyone gets uncomfortable, I'll say, "Oh I didn't mean you" while I shake my relatively thin ass and full head of hair over to the food. Just to be a dick.

I might have to tell the few friends that know about my blog to "keeeeeep cooooool"and keep their traps shut about my blog. I have a list of college stories I'll be posting soon and there are a few that I really don't want some people reading. Not that some of the people the stories are about will be at this party but you know how blabbermouths can be.

And there's one story in particular about an ultimate practical joke I did. If the person ever found out they may want to track me down for revenge.

And on the subject of balloons and college, here's a song that was popular at the time. 99 Luft Balloons by the hairy pitted Nena. One thing about the 80's and early videos - they were craptacular.

My ten year reunion was like that - everyone was fat and bald except for a rare few of us. It had only been ten years! These people were 28 years old but looked twice that! I felt pretty damn HOT that night. HAWT!!!! I can't wait for the 20th reunion next year!! CAN'T WAIT!! I still get mistaken for a teenager now, so that's going to be AWESOME walking in that room!! Hee hee. God, I'm mean, but some of those jerks sooooo have it coming! They freaking deserve to age badly! :-) Have fun flaunting!

Kirby - not sure if he'll be there.

Cora - I agree. The worse other people look, the better I look.

I wrote about Nena and still get quite a lot of traffic from people searching for info about her underarms!

The English version irritated the crap out of me. Luft means airborne or air, not red.

Ever hear of a little AIRline company called Lufthansa?

99 Red Balloons, my ass!

*Being part German is such a chore. ; )

I have never been to any of my reunions,high school or college. There is just no one I want to ever see again. But the girl, Nena, I would tap her in a second - hair and all.

Oh, I love this video, it's so pretty. I really hope you have a good time at the party, you deserve it. I love my reunions, they just keep getting better as everyone else ages but me, haha.

I went to my 10 year reunion and was bored out of my mind. Now that everyone is coming out of the woodwork on Facebook, they want me to go to the next one, which ain't gonna happen.

Of all the one-hit wonders of all the bands in all the world, he had to pick this one...

Chele said...

Cowguy said...

I just remembered what happened at my 10 yr. reunion. A guy that I used to have a crush on, he was our class president, and treated me like dirt, was there. An old friend came up with his video camera, dragging this guy by the arm, saying"do you know who this is?". He kept repeating that, as if he couldn't believe it. I was looking great, I must admit; short red hair, lbd, and stilletto heels. I said hello very sweetly, and took off one of my heels and rubbed the soul of it on top of his balding head. Man, that felt great! But I felt so bad about doing that, it was a crappy thing to do, so at the next reunion I sought him out and apologized. He said he guessed he had that coming. Nice guy, in the end.

Everytime I hear that song, I have to go HERE. I'm sure Gwen could do a better video.

Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures said...

Hope you had fun! That video is awesome!!

Gwen said...

YES! YES! YES! I looove this song!

I was invincible at my last reunion - I looked GOOD, much better than almost all of them. So confident, in fact, that I drank too much and was eventually demoted back to weird girl status. C'est la vie!

Micgar said...

I thought Nena was cute! But those hairy pits were not!

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - that's a classic!

Scope,

Great video! My mom was in the room while it was playing and she said, "What the hell is that???"

I was already laughing but I almost busted a gut on the spot!
