Distraction: Roller Boogie

Once upon a time there was a cute-as-a-button Wandering Eye who thought he could roller skate his way to fame and fortune until an overly aggressive game of indoor roller derby with one Dee Dee Feltner from down the street left him with a double fracture in his right arm.   Rollerskating dreams dashed our hero would go on to non-fame and poverty via other routes namely this here blog.  Fortunately some dreams never really die.....cue a cinematic classic with the power to inspire a desire for extra tight high-waisted shorts, rainbow suspenders and sequined elbow guards....include an 'original' song by Cher plus the wow-how-does-she-do-it acting talent of Linda Blair and this here Wandering Eye is ready to sell his soul for one more roll...

And all this time I thought it was just my friend Lenaya and I who have seen this movie! We want to recreate the opening credits on the streets of Brooklyn someday, but so far it's just the two of us on board...maybe you'll join?

Uh-oh. I feel another broken arm coming on.

Dear DH, I'm polishing my skates in anticipation of the opening sequence re-creation....in Brooklyn no less! That opening scene is pure roller magic and TS, I'll be sure to double up on the sequin wrist, elbow, knee guards. Chic no?
