Do You Remember the Eighties

Inspired by Miss G and with acknowledgement to Stix ....

You ever ended your sentence with "psych"
You solved the Rubics peeling off the stickers
You can sing the rap to "the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"
You wore biker shorts under your skirts and felt stylish
Lasgane was gourmet food
You owned those little Strawberry Shortcake scented dolls
You know what 'Whoa' means from Blossom
Everyone watched Countdown
Three words: M.C. Hammer
You can sing the entire theme song to "Duck Tales"
If you played the chipmunks Christmas album all year long!
The crypt keeper really freaked you out
You ever watched Fraggle Rock
You had plastic streamers on the handle bars of your bike
When it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons
You wore a pony tail to the side of your head
You saw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
"Whatcha talking about Willis?!?!"
The Australian cricket team was never going to beat the Windies but you watched with avid fascination to see how close they would get
You wore a Jordache jean jacket and you were proud of it
Your mother wouldn't let you have garbage pail kids
You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off"
You ever wore fluorescent, neon if you will, clothing
You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off.
You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female smurf
You remember the craze, and then banning of slap bracelets
You still get the urge to use "NOT" at the end of every statement you make
You remember Hypercolor T-shirts
Barbie and the Rockers was your favorite band
You remember Punky Brewster
ou thought Sheera and He-man should hook up
The LA Lakers and Boston Celtics were the hippest teams
You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged "friendship bracelets"
You ever owned a pair of Jelly Shoes
You remember "I've fallen...and I can't get up!"
You know not to mix poprocks and soft drink
Saved by the Bell was one of your favorite shows
You learned oldies songs by watching Alvin and the Chipmunks
You had a Glow Worm or watched the cartoons
You remember dancing along with the Bangles in "Walk Like An Egyptian"
If you remember Heathcliff the orange cat
You've gone through this list occasionally saying "That wasn't from the 80's"
You remember Popples
You wore socks over tights with high-top Reeboks
You wore like 8 pairs of socks at once, scrunched down
You remember boom boxes instead of CD players
You remember watching both "Gremlins" movies
You remember the original Transformers
You had to buy a pair of overalls when everyone started wearing them (with one strap not buckled)
You remember Rainbow Bright and My Little Pony
You remember watching TV thinking Doogie Howser was hot!
You remember Alf, the little furry brown alien from Malmac
You remember the large amounts of hairspray used
Big Hair bands rocked!!!
It was the coolest thing to have a Swatch Watch
Pac Man and SpaceInvaders were living on the wild side
You remember the beginning of New Kids on the Block and had their sleeping bag, pillow, overnight bag AND boardgame, in addition to all their cassette tapes.
You remember watching The Cosby show
You remember Mr.Belvadier
You remember Michael J. Fox in Family Ties and Back to the Future
