The Eighties Survey...



You solved the Rubix cube by peeling off the stickers.
Oh, I know I tried. Really hard. But the stickers wouldn't come off!

You watched the Pound Puppies.
Oh man... there was a Pound Puppies tv show? I didn't know that. I did have Pound Puppies, though... maybe a few Pound Kitties...

You can sing the rap to "the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
Oh yeah... but you have to start me off. I think I'm rusty with the beginning... Ah! There it is! "Now, this is a story all about how my life got turned, flipped upside down..."

You wore biker shorts under your skirts and felt stylish.
No, but I once wore jeans underneath a skirt and felt pretty cool.

You yearned to be a member of the Baby-Sitters Club and tried to start a club of your own.
Oh my god yes... I wanted to be a baby-sitter so badly. But... well, I was too young and we lived in an apartment complex instead of a tightly-knit suburban neighborhood... I did manage to start a bulletin board in the laundry room under that principle, but I never was a babysitter.

You owned those little Strawberry Shortcake pals scented dolls.
Yes... yes I did. I think I even have a Strawberry Shortcake Christmas tree ornament that a friend made me...

Three words: M.C. Hammer.
Oh no... "U can't touch this! Durnurnurnurnur..."

*pukes* No, no, no, no...

The Crypt Keeper really freaked you out.
Yes. Yes he did.

You remember reading Kool-Aid man comics.
Um... no. But I usually wasn't allowed to drink Kool-Aid, for some weird reason. O.o;; Eh, dad?

You watched Fraggle Rock.
Yes. Oh gods yes. Taped it, watched it over and over... I even had an audio cassette of some of the songs. In fact, I still have it. In fact, I still listen to it...

You had plastic streamers on the handlebars of your bike.
XD Yup! Pink, purple, and white!

You remember when getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons was worth your time.
Yes, yes, yes... It still is, sometimes. I get up for X-Men: Evolution, watch it, and then go back to sleep...

You wore a ponytail to the side of your head.
I probably did once or twice, but it didn't look cool on me.

You saw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the big screen.
I don't think so... But I definitely did see it when it came out on video tape! I was a TMNT freak...

You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.
Yes! I had that game at home, in fact. Several versions. The best part was making up really weird names for the people in your party and then killing them off. Although, fo a long time I had a weird emotional connection to the characters and was really weird about not letting them die. I made my dad do some of the stuff just so they would survive the trip.

You made your Mom buy you one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.

You wanted to change your name to Jem in Kindergarten.
Hur? No, I didn't mind my name...

You remember reading "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" and all the Ramona books.
Yes, yes, yes! I adored Ramona so much! "The dawnzer lee light..." Hee... and, of course, Judy Blume forever... *peace sign*

You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off."
It seems so familiar and yet... not. I'm confused.

Actually, I've never seen that movie...

You ever wore fluorescent, neon if you will, clothing.

I wondered many things about the Smurfs. And now they're all communists...

You remember the craze, and then banning, of slap bracelets.
I remember the end of the craze and I seem to remember them being banned and not understanding why...

Yes...

You ever owned a pair of Jelly Shoes.
Yes. I wore them to the wedding of my kindergarten teacher, in fact.

Peewee sort of scared me...

You remember "I've fallen...and I can't get up!"
No...

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates.
Yes... Back when I could skate. Now I can't...

You ever got seriously injured on a slip and slide.
No, thank god.

You know not to mix poprocks and soda.
I'm extremely well-versed on urban legends. Gimme another!

You have played with a 'skip-it.'
Yes, and I was damn good at it too!

You had or went to a birthday party at McDonald's.
I probably went to one...

If you've ever wanted to go to Degrassi High.
Nope.

You ever sat on or used one knee on a skateboard.
Yeah...

You learned oldies songs by watching Alvin and the Chipmunks.

You had a Glow Worm or watched the cartoons.
Yup, I had one of the little plastic ones that you'd put underneath the lamp all day and then at night it would glow...

Dude, we were doing that last year...

The other fat orange cat.

Maybe once or twice.

You remember Popples.
Very much so...

DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY!

    I feel like I should write in here, at least for myself. So I will. Hah. The beginning of my semester was murderous, due to one of the off-campus…

  • I'm not cool enough for the Internet

    Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it.…

    It's a bit sad that updating has become a bi-yearly affair for me, but it's an unfortunate side effect of working and trying to pull my life…
