Ah, the 90’s *sighs*

January 24, 2007 | In Life

The following has been doing the rounds on MySpace – and it brings back so many memories of my childhood that I just really wanted to post it here for eternity’s sake.
Some of the things will only ring true for Australians though – there’s a few Australian references there that foreigners might not understand.


You’re a 90’s kid if:

You remember tazos.
You can finish this [ice ice _ _ _ _ ]
You remember watching Doug and Ren & Stimpy
AAAAAAAH Real Monsters!
You had a favourite member from FIVE.
You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons.
You remember reading “Goosebumps”
You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.
You still get the urge to say “NOT” after (almost) every sentence . . . not

. . . Furbies.
You haven’t always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.
And Windows 98 was the best.
You watched the original cartoons of Rugrats, Power Rangers, and Ninja Turtles.
When Goth (NOT EMO) was crazy cool! Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, the good bands.

You went to McDonald’s to play in the playplace.
Before the MySpace frenzy . . .
Before the Internet & text messaging . . .
Before iPods . . .
Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX . . .
Before Spongebob . . .
when you got one sheet of homework for the whole week.
