You Might Be A Child Of The 80’s If…


This coming Sunday night we will be having a big 80’s prom as a fun night to appreciate all the people who have helped out regularly in the past year. If you are one of those people and didn’t get an invite for some reason, make sure you let us know so you can be in on the fun.
As I was getting some stuff ready for Sunday, I came across this webpage. Thought some of you might appreciate it. Here’s a few of my favorites:
You might be a child of the 80’s if…

  • You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off. Or even when he had those freaky eyes in "Thriller" at the end of the video.
  • You wore a banana clip or one of those slap on wrist bands at some point during your youth.
  • You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off."
  • You know what "psych" means.
  • You know who Max Headroom is.
  • You know, by heart, the words to any "Weird" Al Yankovic song. (I know I’m not alone on that one!)
  • You ever had a Swatch Watch.
  • You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.
  • 3 words: "Atari" "IntelliVision" and "Coleco". Sound familiar?
  • You were shocked and horrified at the Challenger explosion (which you were probably watching in school at the time). (I totally remember watching that at school)
  • You ever dressed to emulate a person you saw in either a Duran Duran, Madonna, or Cyndi Lauper video. (I’m sorry to say, I actually did that with Michael Jackson…but that’s a whole different story.)
  • You have ever called 867-5309.
  • You had a poster of Rob Lowe, Kirk Cameron, or Michael J. Fox on your wall. (BOP magazine?)
  • You remember when film critics raved that no movie could ever possibly get better special effects than those in the movie TRON.

Hopefully that helps some of you get in the groove for Sunday night. Anything you would add?
