  • Mood:


An 80's meme I find myself a little too old for,
You could be a child of the 80s if:
You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE." Of course, it's my major as of 1985.
"Fresh Prince of Bel Air." Network television I generally avoided, and actively ignored in college.
You wore biker shorts under your skirts and felt stylish. I'm a fat chick. None in my size.
You yearned to be a member of the Baby-sitters club and tried to start a club of your own. Naw, I wanted to be on ZOOM!
You owned those lil Strawberry Shortcake pals scented dolls. No, but it's tempting to buy some. Scary.
You know that "WOAH" comes from Joey on Blossom. I was a MASH addict.
Two words: M.C. Hammer. An idiot, but fairly amiably ignorable.
If you ever watched "Fraggle Rock." Once, at a friend's house, I think. Didn't make sense.
You had plastic streamers on your handle bars. No, I don't think they'd invented those in the early 70's
You can sing the entire theme song to "Duck Tales." No clue
When it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons. Didn't get to 'em 'till fairly late in the game, but prefer the ones in the late 70's Esp. Schoolhouse Rock.
You wore a ponytail on the side of your head. Hair was excessively short, growing it out took ages.
You saw the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on the big screen. My best friend's nephews loved the show. I bought them books instead.
You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. Um...I had typing class in high school. We had a computer class in high school, but only a few folks took it.
You made your Mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.Nope. She died in 1980, and I had zilch sense of fashion.
You played the game "MASH" (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House) Heh! Maybe, don't think so, though.
You wore a Jordache Jean jacket and you were proud of it. Nope. Had a pair of jeans that I wore too briefly before growing out of them, though, towards the end of that trend. Damn uncomfy.
L.A. Gear
You wanted to change your name to "JEM" in Kindergarten. whahuhwhat?
You remember reading "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" and all the Ramona books. Never heard of 'em 'till years later, was busy reading murder mysteries.
You know the profound meaning of "WAX ON, WAX OFF." Ayup. And Pat Morita was the cuter one. ;-D
You wanted to be a Goonie. A what?
You ever wore fluorescent clothing. Unfortunately. Never Again Below The Waist.
You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off. Yeah, he was still unpleasantly scary, though.
You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf. Only vaguely after the fact. Never saw the show.
You took Lunch Pails to school. What? No, I used a metal lunchbox as a kid, then switched to boring paper bags.
You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets. Vaguely, when I was in college, I think.
You still get the urge to say "NOT" after every sentence. Once in a blue moon. But don't say it, it's dumb.
You remember Hypercolor T-shirts. Hell yeah, would love more.
Barbie and the Rockers was your favorite band. Wha? They didn't have THAT when I was a kid!;-)
You thought She-Ra and He-Man should hook up. I don't think so. But the She-Ra song by Two Nice Girls was good. :-)
You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged friendship bracelets. I was a little old for that.
You ever owned a pair of jelly shoes. Nope. My feet are too weird and wide.
After you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you kept saying "I know what you are, but what am I?" Might have once or twice, but never saw the movie, so don't get the reference.
You remember "I've fallen and I can't get up" And 'Where's The Beef?' Sorta...ish.
You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates. And being picked on for being lousy on both ice and roller skates. Hello doublejointedness wobble.
You ever got seriously injured on a Slip and Slide. After my time!
You have ever played with a Skip-It. What's that?
You had or attended a birthday party at McDonald's. Nope, too old for that. Although I did go to a wedding at one once in the 90's.
You've gone through this list occasionally saying "Totally awesome" Like, fer sure. NOT. *snorkgiggle*

You remember Popples. No clue
"Don't worry, be happy" Ugh. More Painful Music.
You wore like, EIGHT pairs of socks over tights with high top Reeboks. Like, no WAY. Eww!
You wore socks scrunched down. That's where they usually end up anyway. :P
"Miss MARY MACK MACK, all dressed in BLACK BLACK BLACK" And a few others, vaguely remembered from the early-to-mid 70's.
You remember boom boxes vs. CD players. Sure do.
You remember watching both "Gremlins" movies. I did see the first one some time after it came out.
You know what it meant to say "Care Bear Stare!" No clue
You remember watching Rainbow Bright and My Little Pony Tales. More televison I was too old for.
You thought Doogie Howser was hot. Network television ewww. And Way Too Young.
You remember Alf, the lil furry brown alien from Melmac. Doesn't he hawk phone service?
You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool, Unfortunately. *bleah*
You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By the Bell," the ORIGINAL class. I never even met 'em! ;-D
You know all the words to Bon Jovi. I don't ever want to, either.
You had a Rubik's Cube. There was one in the house...
You got frustrated and changed the stickers. Not me. My sister probably did, though.
You had a "Scratch and Sniff" sticker book. Vaguely remembered.

You had bermuda shorts. No WAY! I'm not THAT crazy about getting abuse.
You played ALL the versions of "Combat."Whatever that was.. .I've no clue.
You saw a Paul McCartney video on MTV. Might've over at a friend's with cable. We didn't get it for ages.
You were impressed by ATARI 2600's graphics. I don't know...I don't remember. Eventually we got a pong-ish game.
You ran a 50-yard dash. Nope. Ignored them as often as possible. Might've walked one once.
You participated in "Hands Across America." I vaguley remember hearing about it.
You watched Live Aid. Might've, again, with a friend who had cable.
You owned one of the following: the "Thriller" jacket, the "Beat It" jacket, or a sparkly white glove. Um, no. I have no sense of fashion, but I'm not THAT far gone! ;-D
You had a Cabbage Patch doll. Nope, after my time.
And sent in their adoption papers. See previous entry
You had all the components to Voltron. Huhwhat? After my time, I think.
You owned the original Transformers. Nope, but my current lover owns some still.
You know who "Snarf" is. I use it these days as a verb occasionally. No clue about origin, though.
Converse Hi-tops. Not in my size.
You saw the Challenger explode. Live. Maybe. Don't remember for sure.
"K-I-D-S, Yeah!" Sounds like TV again.
Dungeons & Dragons Played assasin once at one of my colleges...but nobody ever invited me into a D&D session.
You wanted to buy a copy of "Buh-Wheat Sings" Good Goddess, why would I?
You pitied the fools who didn't watch "The A-Team." Television AGAIN?

Monchichi, Monchichi oh so soft and cuddly! A scary toy, with an even scarier mind-dissolving song.
