Robots Need Love Too

Jen over at unedited is having a fun Friday video contest. This week the topic was tube socks vs. ankle socks. I had never made one of these before and it's so much FUN! I saw the robots and immediately thought of Eva - robots need love too! Here is the silly video I made:


I won!! I'm so excited! Here is my bling for winning:

Thanks Jen!

Now that both my parents have already checked the blog and watched the video, I can safely post the REAL ankle socks vs. tube socks. This is my parents running a half marathon together. Mom has the ankle socks, which don't even cover the ankles, on over her tights and dad is rocking the tube socks. Notice how carefully he matched his outfit with his head band, but not the tube socks. I guess in the 80s tube socks were versatile and didn't have to match the outfit.

  8. Jennie,

    My name is Alfredo Salkeld. I was wondering if I could use the picture of your parents in a video for my journalism class. I am making a video about a trend at my school where many kids are wearing tube socks. I am suggesting it is a tribute to 80s style.

    Thank you.
