*You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons. *You wore a ponytail on the side of your head and had scrunchies.
*You remember reading "Goosebumps".
*You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, wax off".
*You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.
*You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.
*You remember the craze then the banning of yo-yo's.

Jude said...

Seriously... And I thought I was all modern living in a "big city".

Anyway, good to know you're 21. Makes me feel less weird commenting on your blog ;-)

Clover said...
