80s Awesomeness! is an original concoction of my
insanity need to live in the 80s. The flashback started here and posts weekly on Saturdays, highlighting the best of 80s fashion, music, movies and whatever else the coked up, yuppie Rubik’s Cube decade can throw at you.
A show before my time, Square Pegs was about two girls (does one of them look familiar?) just trying to fit in at school. You know, square peg, round hole? Ha ha? Right. I’ve never seen an episode and the series only lasted a season but I do know they padded Amy Linker’s outfits (the one that isn’t Sarah Jessica Parker) to make her look heavier. Apparently that made her even more uncool. Add in the fraulein hair, weird clothes and braces and I don’t think she could have gotten any squarer.
