- Being a kid with less responsibilities and more innocent fun.

- The music of course... Don Henley's Boys Of Summer, Alannah Myles' Black Velvet, Rod Stewart's Motown Song, Men At Work, Toto, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Duran Duran, Def Lep.... etc.

- Flourescent colors.. lots of pink and green, clothes, grafiti

- Those flexible plastic bands you could slap onto your wrist!

- Mailing hand written letters with cute stamps

- Having pen pals, writing stories, poems, drawing, soccer, all those hobbies I had.

There's tons more but I can't think of them right now.

Its funny you mention that, because when I found Larry's sticks the other day (see my journal) my old Rubiks cube was also in the box. So I pulled that out also and found that I still remember how to solve it, just not as quickly.

I remember my first two concerts of my life in 1982/83 costing me $13 a piece! Then thinking my Police tickets at $18 later in 83 were expensive!! My how times have changed.

- Thundercats, Must See TV on NBC (Family Ties, Cheers, The Cosby Show, Night Court), School House Rocks in between cartoons on Saturday.

- Going to concerts with my friends at Astroworld.

- All the John Hughes movies

- Summers off sleeping in till about 11 am.

There are so many more, just not enough space. If I could I would re-live my school years in the 80's.

Ah the 80's...

MTV -when it was good

big hair - I had to have it...

dressing as Elvira for halloween

being "in love" with Bon Jovi, Johnny Depp, Tommy Lee and Rick Savage (Def Lep)

good stuff. I need to rent it again, it has been eons since I have seen it. Alot of great physical humor in it also. The beginning when he is dating his original girlfriend and both think they have something in their nose and are afraid to the tell the other....

Those wild college years

Becoming a U2 fan

Getting away with wearing stuff like denim miniskirts

The Talking Heads were still together and so were the Police (for a while anyway)

Old-school video games (Frogger, Pac-Man, etc.)

No reality TV
