A nice trip down memory lane

LJ is fun when you're procastinating. I'm posting like 2, 3 posts a day now. I should soo be studying. Mid-terms are coming up. Oh well I found this:

You're a 90's kid if:

You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!"

You just cant resist finishing this... "Iiiiiiin west philladelphia born and raised..." (in the playground is where I spent most of my days...)

You remember TGIF on ABC. Step by Step, Family Matters, Dinosaurs, and Boy Meets World. (Boy Meets World and Family Matters were the SHIT)

"Miss Susie had a steam boat, the steam boat had a bell..miss suzie went to heaven the steamboat went to hell_o operator please give me number 9 and if you disnconnect me i'll kick you from behind the fridgerator, there was a piece of glass, miss suzie sat upon it and broke her little ***_k me no more questions, please tell me no more lies the boys are in the bathroom zipping up their flies, are in the city the bees are in the park .......................... miss suzie and her boyfriend are kissing in the D-A-R-K- D-A-R-K D-A-R-K dark dark dar dar da dark" (I totally do NOT remember that. If it was one of those clappy things, I never knew any of those. My memory was terrible.)

You remember when Kurt Cobain, 2Pac, River Phoenix, and Selena died. (I actually cried when Selena died)

You know that "WOAH" comes from Joey from "Blossom" and that "How Rude!" comes from Stephanie from "Full House" (yep!)

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons. (I even knew the theme song to One Saturday Morning)

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. (Um, what the fuck is that?)

You remember reading "Goosebumps" (LOL yep!! The first one I read was "The Beast of the East")

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school. (We used to compare them at school.)

You danced to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, Females: had a new motto, Males: got a whole lot gay-er. (so tell me what you want, what you really really want.) (Girl Power!)

You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books. (I never knew they were banned but I used to love slap bracelets)

You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not...(I said it to my brother the other day and he looked at me like I was retarded)

You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record "Your FAVORITE song of ALL time" (I remember I waited HOURS for It's Gonna Be Me by Nsync to come on just so I can record it.)

Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game show. (That song would stay in my head for DAYS)

Captain Planet. (Uhh, who?)

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together. (LOL YES!!)

When playing power rangers with friends you fought over who got to be who............and still all ended up being Tommy. (All the boys at school would fight to be him)

You remember when super nintendo's became popular. (I still have the system in my house somewhere. Donkey Kong was my life)

You always wanted to send in a tape to America's Funniest Home Videos... but never taped anything funny.(There was a time when there was a camera connected to my Dad''s hand but nothing funny EVER happened)

You remember watching home alone 1, 2 , and 3........and tried to pull the pranks on "intruders" (LOL My cousin convinced me to pour paint all over his foyer just to get his older sister to slip and fall on it. It was all inspired by Home Alone. Man did we get into trouble..)

"I've fallen and I can't get up" (Oh kay. I don't remember that one)

One word,"Pokemon" (That was after my time)

When you have played and beaten mario brothers/duck hunt. (DUCK HUNT!!!! That orange gun was the shit, man)

If you ever watch cheers. (I watched it once or twice. Never liked it though)

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates (Those orignal skates are haaard to skate in. Does anyone go to those rollerskating places anymore? I miss those. The music was fun)

if you memeber when every thing was "da BOMB"

when they made the new lunchables so that you could make tacos and pizza!! (I always wanted to have those daily. But my mom insisted on making me sandwiches. But boy was it a treat to find those in my cartoon lunch boxes)


You wore socks over leggings scrunched down

"Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black, with silver buttons, buttons, buttons, all down her back, back, back" SHE ASKED HER MOTHER MOTHER MOTHER FOR FIFTY CENTS CENTS CENTS TO SEE THE ELEPHANTS PHANTS PHANTS JUMP OVER THE FENCE THE FENCE THE FENCE
he jumped so high high high he touched the sky sky sky and he didnt come back back back til the forth of july ly ly he jumped so low ow ow he stubbed his toe toe toe and thats the end end end of the elephants show show show (Those clappy things again?)

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players (sure do)

Writing M.A.S.H. notes. (and the twenty different versions of that) (Haha, those were so much fun. I always ended up getting to marry the guy I liked)

Making those little fortune cookie things.. and then predicting
your life with them. (LOL YES! I almost forgot about those!!!!)

"I'm just joshin' ya!!" (never said that once or hear anyone say that)

You remember New Kids on The Block when they were cool (duuuh. I have a video of me singing to The Right Stuff when I was like 4)

And You Were Obsessed with either 'Nsync or Backstreet Boys. But never NEVER both...(lmao so true. I was a fan of BSB first then Nsync came along with No Strings Attached and BSB were over. I turned my back on them soooo fast)

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell" (I still do )

You played and/or collected "Pogs" (I sucked at that so bad. I always lost all my pogs and would beg my parents to buy them every night)

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere (Tamagotchi!!)

You haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet. (I used to brag about having a computer.)

You watched the original Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles (The new Care Bears and Ninja Turtles suck. What's with all the computer-ization. Looked way better when it was normal cartoon.)

Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff!

When boys still had cooties and girls were still weird. (Circle, circle, dot, dot. Now I've got my cooties shot)

Girls go to college to get more knowledge, boys go to Jupider to get more stupider! Or the other way around. (I used to say that like everyday.)

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.(pencils.notebooks.binde...

You remember when the new Beanie Babies and talking Elmo were always sold out.

You collected those Beanie Babies. (LOL, they're all still in my room. I don't know what to do with them all. SO not throwing them out)

You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes. (I thought I was the one who started that..)

You remember a time before the WB.

You owned a portable tape player. (duuh)

If you even know what an original walkman is. (Haha yeah. Those things are so ugly)

You remember wanting to sit on the orange Nickelodeon couch.

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (I seriously used to get nightmares from those. That and Goosebumps. I would watch them every weekend and sleep in my parents bedroom)

You know the Macarena by heart. (Duuh. Only '90's kids know that? How sad)

"Talk to the hand" ... enough said (..cuz the face at home, leave a message at the beep. BEEP. I so have the urge to say that to someone today)

You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!" (Who are you kidding? I still say that)

You know the significance of the number 23. (Michael Jordan was and is the shit. I was a fan and I don't even watch basketball)

You went to McD's to play in the playplace. (Why don't kids play in those anymore)

You remember playing on merry go rounds...at the play ground. (So many injuries. I used to hang off of it while it was still spinning.)

You remember dreaming to be on a Nickelodeon game show: Double Dare, Nick Arcade, GUTS, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Fun House, Figure It Out, ...(I'm Canadian. We didn't get those but I'm sure YTV was better anyway ;))

You all know you watched Hey Dude, and Salute Your Shorts...(no. I watched Dudley the Dragon and Banana's in Pajama's if that's similiar..)

Remember and You Cant Do That On Television where getting slimed first started!

Who Love's Orange Soda? Kel Loves Orange Soda.. IS it true??? I doo I doo I doooo00000000000......(What the fuck is that? That sounds so weird to me. Never heard it in my life)

When we were younger:

Before the MySpace frenzy...(Now it's all about Facebook)

Before the Internet & text messaging...(I actually remember when no one had cell phones. How did they live?)

Before Sidekicks & iPods...

Before cellphones.

Before MIKE JONES...

Before Anime was popular.

Before Green Day were "American Idiots"

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX...

...Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night. (I can't do that anymore. I SO miss being a kid)

Before Britney Spears was a slut. (WOW that was a looong time ago. Remember when she was a "virgin til marriage"?)

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs. (I remember asking what the difference was. That felt like yesterday)

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie. (Malls on Friday nights were the place to be. I remember getting 10 dollars and that would pay for my ticket AND popcorn. Now it's like almost $30 for both.)

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans. (Does anyone request songs anymore?)

When phone numbers were still 7 digits. (I was in grade 8 then. I remember we had a big discussion about how cell phones were taking over. Woah, time goes fast)

When Being a TOMBOY was "in". (two words: Sporty Spice)

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive. (It was all a dream. I used to read Word Up magazine. Salt N Pepa, Heavy D up in the limousine..)

when none of your friends done or even touched weed yet. (That seemed so long ago.)

When everyone loved Disney movies. (People still do. Why don't kids like Disney's with songs in them? The only reason why I loved Lion King, Aladdin, Little Mermaid etc were because of the songs. Kids suck these days)

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever. (Haha. Dennis Rodman's hair. haha)

Way back.

when it was all about N64.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!! 

I certainly didn't think I'd miss it that much. Where are the boybands now? Where are the musicals? Where's the cheesy stuff that you couldn't help but love? I SO miss being a kid.

Lol, my problem is I don't know how to stop being a kid ... :P

LOL same!!! I caught myself asking my brother to flip back to Arthur the other day. I use my brother as an excuse for everything! He didn't want to see Happy Feet (apparently "it's a movie for girls.") and I basically forced him to go.

Thank God he wants to see Bridge to Terabithia. It's a lot easier when you don't have to drag him to the theatre.

RE:Chris' entry, NCC1701, etc. You have a clue what it is, you just don't REALIZE that you know it. Ever heard of a little thing called Star Trek that George Takei costarred in? ;) It's the number for the Enterprise.
mega_mega From: mega_mega Date: February 9th, 2007 06:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Was never a fan of Star Trek and I don't even know who George Takei is, lol. The way the aliens looked used to give me a headache for some reason.

I'm not really into Sci-Fi. The only things I like are X-Men and Heroes. I'm not even a fan of Stephen King, really. :o lol.
