I stole this from Carlee Padot-I'm from 1981 that's for sure!: (I took out all the ones that did not apply to me-I am a dork)
You know you grew up in the 1980's when:
It was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.
You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.
You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.
You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.
You played the game "MASH" (Mansion, Apartment, Shelter, House).
You wore stonewashed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it.
You know the profound meaning of "WAX ON , WAX OFF."
You wanted to be a Goonie.
You ever wore fluorescent clothing (some of us...head-to-toe).
You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off and his cheeks shifted.
You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.
You took lunch boxes to school...and traded Garbage Pailkids in the schoolyard.
You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets.
You still get the urge to say "NOT" after every sentence.
You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged handmade friendship bracelets.
You ever owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes.
After you saw "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure," you kept saying "I know you are, but what am I?"
You remember "I've fallen and I can't get up."
You have ever played with a Skip-It.
You remember boom boxes and walking around with one on your shoulder.
You remember watching both "Gremlins" movies.
You remember Alf, the lil' furry brown alien.
You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool...and don't even flinch when people refer to them as "NKOTB."
You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell."
You still sing "We are the World"
You tight rolled your jeans.
You owned a banana clip.
