FRIDAY’S HD TONY’S 80s AT 8 SONG: CYNDI LAUPER-TRUE COLORS. Cynthia Ann Stephanie Lauper had the first debut album by a female to chart four top-five hits on the Billboard Hot 100, as “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”, “Time After Time”, “She Bop”, and “All Through the Night” all hit the top of the chart. Her success continued with her second record True Colors in 1986, which included another #1 hit in with the title track. Cyndi Lauper has hit the retirement age at 65, but she has no signs of slowing down.
This is the video Randy was talking about when discussing the bad allergy season. The video came out last month featuring Eric Henderson of Millville, NJ, as he taps a tree with his front-end loader. You’ll probably sneeze just watching it!
SONOGRAM NAIL ART IS A THING NOW.
We’re used to moms-to-be using sonogram photos to announce their pregnancies on social media or giving future grandparents a framed pic. But now you can put your sonogram on your nails. Beautician Sarah Clarke at Sarenity Hair & Nail Salon in the UK started the trend with one customer and it’s really been taking off. And she found a cool way to serve even more pregnant moms by offering the sonogram nail art on a tip for other nail techs to apply. You just send in your photo and she’ll sell you the sonogram nail art tip and your regular nail person can put it on. And if you happen to want to hold on to that nail with your baby’s blurry grey image on it, they will send it in a presentation box so you can keep the tip as a keepsake.

MYSTERY OF THE STOLEN OFFICE LUNCH
Comedian Zak Toscani live-tweeted the drama that went down after a co-worker’s shrimp fried rice was taken from the fridge. Viewers were allowed to watch security footage and they determined that it was a female co-worker who sat right next to Zak and who didn’t even eat the food, just threw it in the garbage. The wronged co-worker didn’t want the thief fired, but HR sent out a company-wide email warning about stealing people’s lunches, and when the culprit read it she was actually heard saying, “Woah. Someone stole a lunch? Who would do something like that?” Unfortunately, Zak and his colleagues never did find out why she would steal and throw away her co-worker’s food. The story was so popular it even caught the eye of “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who tweeted, “I love this ending. I don’t need to know why she did it, I enjoyed the ride. Thanks for today.” Zak’s first tweet is below.
Click on the tweet and you’ll be able to see the whole thread as the drama unfolded.
Co-worker got his lunch stolen and they’ve agreed to let him watch the security camera tape. This is the most excited I’ve ever been at any job ever. Ever.

Lake Superior State University’s 43rd Annual List of Banished Words.
These are words and phrases flagged for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness.
LSSU’s word banishment tradition is now in its fifth decade, and was started by the late W. T. Rabe, a public relations director at Lake Superior State University.
Through the years, LSSU has received tens of thousands of nominations for the list, which now includes almost 900 entries. Word-watchers target pet peeves from everyday speech, as well as from the news, fields of education, technology, advertising, politics and more. An editor makes a final cut in late December.
And now, the 2018 list:
Tons – an exaggerated quantity, as in tons of sunshine or tons of work. ‘Lots’ would surely suffice.
Dish – As in to dish out the latest rumor on someone.
Pre-owned – formerly known as “used”
Nothingburger – Says nothing that ‘nothing’ doesn’t already.
Let that sink in – One could say shocking, profound, or important. Let that sink in.
Let me ask you this – Wholly unnecessary statement. Just ask the question already.
Covfefe – President Trump’s typo, somehow missed by the autocorrect feature.
Drill Down – Instead of expanding on a statement, we “drill down on it.”
…and the top banned term:
Fake News – Once upon a time stories could be empirically disproved. Now ‘fake news’ is any story you disagree with.

BELOIT COLLEGE MINDSET LIST
The Wisconsin school of higher learning puts together a yearly list of what students have and haven’t experienced in their lifetime. It’s very handy so professors can relate, but it just makes the rest of us feel old.
This year’s entering college class of 2021 can’t remember when a “phone” wasn’t a video game and research library. Mostly born in 1999, the last of the Millennials have always been searching for Pokemon.
Among the iconic figures who have never been alive in their lifetimes are Joe DiMaggio, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Walter Payton.
They have largely grown up in a floppy-less world.
XM has always offered satellite radio programming for a fee.
There have always been emojis to cheer us up.
By the time they entered school, laptops were outselling desktops.
It is doubtful that they have ever used or heard the high-pitched whine of a dial-up modem.
They were never able to use a Montgomery Ward catalogue as a booster seat.
Donald Trump has always been a political figure, as a Democrat, an Independent, and a Republican.
Amazon has always been the online place to shop.
Blackberry has gone from being a wild fruit to being a communications device to becoming a wild fruit again.
Dora the Explorer and her pet monkey Boots helped to set them on the course of discovery.
One out of four major league baseball players has always been born outside the United States.
They never got to see Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Stein co-host a quiz show or Dennis Miller provide commentary for the NFL.
As toddlers, they may have taught their grandparents how to Skype.
Justin Timberlake has always been a solo act.
