I have been told I have to attend a 1980s party tomorrow. The wife & her friend seems to think I should go as BA Barracus while I am suggesting a Coal Miner(nobody got that)

Does anyone have any good suggestions which shouldnt be too difficult to put together?

How about going as a Marillion fan? :eyesI was going to suggest putting on some faded denim and perming your hair and going as Bon Jovi / Europe / general 80s rocker*, going as Fish is a better idea but would anyone know who he was?

You could go as Adam Ant, Mrs Thatcher, Loadsamoney, or JR Ewing.

Just painted on.

Waiting while the missus and her friend put 'Madonna' spots on each other and cake on loads of make up. Just sit up with a beer for a few minutes.

Someone just bought me really dodgy flip flops.

Flip Flops are Cool!

Why thank you Sir!
Other than in the office (which is full whistle) I wear FlipFlops (or FitFlops actually) all the time out here......

I actually wear them a lot of the time back home..... well even in mid winter actually..... (I don't really do cold!)
