You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence . . . not

You always used the phrase "i know you are but what am i" after every insult..

You would say "lets not and say we did"

when everyhting was settled by:
-rock paper scissors or
-bubble gum bubble gum in a dish or
-daddy had a donkey inky binky bonky.
-skunk in the barnyard
-train train number 9

when cops and robbers was a daily activity.

You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record your FAVORITE song of ALL time.

"Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" was both a game and a TV game show.

Captain Planet. He's a Hero.

You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.

You always wanted to send in a tape to America's Funniest Home Videos . . . but never taped anything funny.

If you remember when every thing was "da BOMB!"

When they made the new lunchables so that you could make pizza AND tacos.

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players.

Making those little paper fortune cookie things, and then predicting your life with them.

You played and/or collected "Pogs" :)

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet, or Nano and brought it everywhere.

. . . Furbies

You haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.

And Windows 95 was the best.

You watched the original cartoons of Rugrats, Power Rangers, and Ninja Turtles.

Michael Jordan was a king.

YIKES pencils and erasers were the stuff!

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.

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

You collected those Beanie Babies.

Carebears

Miss Susie had a steamboat, her steamboat had a bell....

Brickwall waterfall, girl you think you know it all..

Easy Bake ovens

Gak was the coolest stuff invented.

Lambchop's song never ended.

The old dollar bills.

Silver dollars, which were cool to have.

You remember a time before the WB.

You collected all the Troll dolls

If you even know what an original walkman is.

You remember wanting to sit on the orange Nickelodeon couch.

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

You know the Macarena by heart.

"Talk to the hand" . . . enough said

You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!"

You went to McDonald's to play in the playplace.

You remember playing on merry go rounds at the playground.

Before the MySpace frenzy . . .

Before the Internet & text messaging . . .

Before Sidekicks & iPods . . .

Before MIKE JONES . . .

Before PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 . . .

Before Spongebob . . .

Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

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

When we recorded stuff on VCRs.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off of our walkman.

When checking out drawing books and that one book about the rainbow fish from the library was THE cool thing to do.

You had slap braclets!

Way back.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.

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

Yup. I qualify. The one thing that stands out in my memory that isn't listed there is a plastic chain with a bazillion plastic charms that one would buy individually and add to the plastic chain. I still have mine. :)

Also, everything was "wicked cool."

Also

Before video games
Before cable TV
Before mini -vans and soccer leagues.
Before frivolous lawsuits.
Before fear of predators.

I feel sorry for children today. I think kids today, if given a choice, would trade their high tech goodies to be able to roam their neighborhoods without fear.

I know I would!! I love being outside, and my neighborhood is great (however there's nobody my age around lol), but some areas around here are sketchy even during the day and that sucks!

Funny. I grew up in the 80's AND 90's but in the 90's I was in the throes of all the FAD stuff. I definitely have more memory of the 90's. Of course, I was in high school for half of it. :-\
