Spike slays today in a plaid skirt and some sort of decorated tee. It says “Love Missile”. I could never catch the front. I’m no 80s genius (is it even possible to become a genius of a time you didn’t live through?!) but I Googled “Love Missile” and it’s the name of a song by a band called Sigue Sigue Sputnik. It’s really freakin weird. I see it’s described as “space punk”. So yeah, that’s highly likely that’s what Spike’s shirt is referring to. Meanwhile, in contrast to the complexities of Sigue Sigue Sputnik space punk, Joey is trying to sell Spike some Zit Remedy and she’s all “nah”.


I love how musically-focused Spike is, also without being a musician herself. That’s how I am. So today she sports a more familiar artist on her shirt, Billy Idol. Her hair is fleekin and is freshly bleached. And I’m pretty sure in 10 years no one will know what “fleekin” means. Or it’ll be the equivalent of some term like “bling bling” is today.
