I'm a Product of the 80's

Okay, so after I did that Christmas Taggleton, I got a little nostalgic. Especially after seeing that picture of the Barbie Dream House. So, here is a little sumpin, sumpin for those kids of the 80's, early 90's - like me!

These really brought back some memories - oh how I miss being a kid. Go ahead admit it, they all ring a bell, don't they? My comments are in parentheses

You knew you grew up in the 80's (or early 90's) if...

1. You've ever ended a sentence with the word "SIKE".

2. You watched the Pound Puppies (Oh I loved my Pound Puppy)

4. You wore biker shorts under your skirts and felt stylish.

5. You yearned to be a member of the Baby-sitters club and tried to start a club of your own.

6. You owned those lil Strawberry Shortcake pals scented dolls. (Strawberry Shortcake was my favorite - I even had a Strawberry Shortcake kitchen set - ooh, and my sleeping bag was Strawberry Shortcake).

7. You know that "WOAH" comes from Joey on Blossom.

9. If you ever watched "Fraggle Rock". (I remember watching Fraggle Rock one time when I was sick with Strep Throat. I had just finished some of that Lipton's Chicken Soup; I was watching it and basking in the glory of making my brother watch it when all of a sudden I had to rush to the bathroom to vomit. I didn't make it. And, my brother changed the channel by the time I came back)!
10. You had plastic streamers on your handle bars. (what about those little ball-type things you put on your spokes that clicked - and glowed in the dark?)

11. You can sing the entire theme song to "Duck Tales". (Oo oo)

12. When it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watchcartoons. (Oh, those were the days - admit it, you watched Pee-Wee's Playhouse, who didn't?)

I am so far behind on your blog because of my cat. This was hilarious. I had the same hypercolor t-shirt! And just so you're not the only one out there who admits it, I went to a New Kids on the Block concert. It was for their Christmas album. My dad had to come with me, and I don't think he's ever forgiven me.

Mikala said...

It's okay to be behind...kitty comes first! :0) I hope Toby's doing better.

So, does your dad still have signs of PTSD? I went with a group of girls...I remember standing in line at Streetside Records for the tickets (it was so sad). :0)
