The Family that Parties Together Travels Back in Time Together


Tootsie and family attended a 1970's themed New Years Eve party to ring in 2010. With the movie Boogie Nights in mind, they hit the thrift store on Ventura Blvd to secure their vintage clothing. They left with two shirts and a dress. The dress is the only thing Tootsie had to purchase for herself. This means that Tootsie already had blue eyeshadow, gold strappy shoes with cork heels, a hair comb, a gold sequined purse, suntan pantyhose, and sundry costume jewelry at her disposal: which means that Tootsie either has some really cool treasures in her closet or some really tacky shit. Tootsie's oldest son looks like he fell right out of 1975 on a daily basis so not much effort was needed to achieve his look. Even Mr. Farklepants is wearing Tootsie's own belt. He IS wearing a wig but the douchestache and mutton chops are all his - which made it all the sweeter when it wasn't until AFTER he'd made a trip OUT IN PUBLIC to replace the flat tire on his car that he realized he still hadn't shaved. That, dear friends, is made of AWESOME.

I don't know what I love more -- the dress or the hair.... Awesome.

You don't catch those of us who had to grow up in that beknighted decade dressing this way, not even in jest. The photo is triggering my 70's-induced PTSD.

Oh, I feel like I've time-traveled! Except back then, I don't think I looked nearly as good as you guys.

Didn't I see Mr. Farklepants at the Filmore East?

Oh you are so busted for using my word ("douchestache") without crediting me! Especially since I was the one who had to wear the damn thing!
