S/O Shiz that dates you

Walk Like an Egyptian was also 1 the year I was born and was one of my favorite songs growing up. We had a record player in my basement and I used to listen to that, The Locomotion, Hey Mickey and the Grease soundtrack non stop while playing Math Blaster on our DOS computer. I am so not impressed Lo can use my phone, pssh. I'd love to see E using an old school computer and loading continuous paper on a dot matrix printer.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far

Re: S/O Shiz that dates you

  • I remember when it was a big deal when shower gel came out and didn't have to use a bar anymore.

  • Things that date me:

    -I call most music players Jam Boxes and all video game consoles are Nintendos

    -I still have my Hot 9 at 9 cassette tapes...you know from when I recorded the music from the radio.  Only problem is that I have nothing to listen to them on ;-)

    -The fact that neon and boat shoes are in style... gag me with a spoon.  If worn once, never again.  

    -I really miss regular home phones w/answering machines...and Ecto Cooler Hi-C boxes.

    Ecto coolers were the shiz.

  • I remember buying my first cd at age 12.

    We had "computer" session in my elementary school where we had to program using DOS on Apple IIes - make a little turtle go around the screen.

  • I swear I saw Ecto Coolers at the Commisary not that long ago! I know I've bought them for E not that long ago. MH makes some kind of drink that tastes like Ecto Cooler, a Pearl Harbor I think?

  • Stuff that dates me:

    1.) My Mom had an 8-track deck in the car and on our stereo at home so I grew up with that and owned some of my own 8-track tapes.

    2.) I owned a Sony Walkman and I think I may still have it in my basement somewhere.

    3.)When I was a manager at a restaurant I had to carry a pager to be reached. Cell phones were just coming on the market and were extremely expensive (and large).

    4.) The high beam light switch in the car was on the floor. When I was a teenager I drove cars with the switch still on the floor.

    5.) My family had a slide projector and we would pull it out to look at family pictures when my brother and I were young. We also had a home movie projector.

     Oh the memories!

    1. Girl Talk,  mine still has a couple zits left in the box
    2. Rose petal dolls
    3. My brother had a perm
    4. Remember when Little Cesar's pizzas were rectangle?
    5. I remember when the McDonald's by Superdeduper's house had a "train" and would take us to a play ground up on a the hill where they had an outdoor eating area.  Did anyone else have a McDonald's like that?

  • A few more things...

    1.) I was 17-18 when the Berlin wall fell and Germany was reunified. My childhood was during the Cold War era. The USSR existed until I was an adult.

    2.) AIDS wasn't known/identified until I was 12 yo. I remember the health department shutting down the bath houses in San Francisco.

  • The first video game I played was Frogger on the Atari.

    I loved jellies.

    Punky Brewster was my idol. (Actually, I really wanted to be her pretty blonde friend Margaux)

  • I remember when my parents got a cell phone for the car and it came in a little briefcase.  I thought I was cool using it anyway.  We didn't get a VCR until I was in middle school I think and I loved going to the video store to rent movies!  Remember "Be Kind, Rewind"?  I don't think I ever had to sit in a carseat!

    Girl Talk!  Agh!  That was our thing for slumber parties!  I'd forgotten!

    My first job was at Little Caesars!  I totally remember the rectangle pizzas!

  • I bought this patch set and made a shirt for C as a gift to my gamer geek husband and she wore it to school this week.  I joked that we should ask all of the college aged aides if they knew what it was - only a handful did.  *cry*

    What dates me is that my DH is 5 years younger than me and never understanding my "Jessica Spano was addicted to caffine pills" stories.

    I'm so excited....I'm so scared

  • I tap danced in front of a full length mirror at my mom's with my jellies. I accidentally kicked the mirror and broke it. My mom still lives there and the mirror is still broken.

    My mom and dad has a nasty divorce when I was 1012, but my mom still lives in the house they lived in together.

    DD is the same age now that I was when we moved in to the house. My mom keeps telling me how hard it is to watch her where her and my dad had so many issues.

    I don't know how I feel about this.

    I was 8 when the wall came down but I was there. Walked the protests, saw the tanks and all. Not in Berlin, but Leipzig. Crazy.

    And you cannot have been 17 at that point....really?

  • I remember riding around in our family car- a pea green PINTO

    I used to go to the store and my mom would let me pick out a record to bring home. My fav one was the Smurfs.

    I loved the Snorks

    My bedroom carpet growing up was a high shag that was bright orange and puke green squares

    I used to walk over a mile to school when I was in kindergarten

  • We still own the original Nintendo.  I took Oliver to a place called Chatterbox a few years ago for an event.  It is like a pub that specializes in nostalgiac games and video games.  He impressed all the 20 year olds playing  Mario Bros two (the one with Peach) They could not believe he knew all the secrets.

    Nita, that would have been even more amazing to witness IRL rather than just on TV. That was such a historic moment! Yeah, unfortunately I was 17...I was born in '72 and the wall fell late '89-'90. I am a really old fart. Embarrassed
