You are a true child of the 80's...
« on: April 01, 2004, 13:37:02 PM »
You never questioned why the A-Team were always imprisoned in places that had sufficient tools to build an armoured tank.
Dungeons & Dragons was your favourite cartoon.
Your lunch times were spent perfecting swan dives and backspins.
You fell out with friends during heated arguments about the relative merits of Matt & Luke.
You owned, or wanted a "Frankie says..." T-shirt.
You have ever danced (or even worse cried) to Kylie & Jason.
Cerise pink, electric blue and banana yellow have ever featured in your wardrobe or make-up collection.
You ever did the top toggle of your coat up around your neck without having your arms in the sleeves, and knew you looked like a super-hero.
You remember when the A-Ha video was the pinnacle of modern technology, and you can still sing all the words.
Parachuting Action man was your favourite toy.
Your best party dress was either a ra-ra or puff-ball skirt.
You ever owned a thin, black leather tie (and were proud of it), or worse it was patterned like a piano.
You wondered why a popular kids TV programme told you to "Turn off your TV set and go and do some less boring instead".
You cried at Zammo's funeral.
You wanted to be either Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys.
You ever said "It's my ball, and if I can't be Kevin Keegan I'm going home!"
You remember the aerobie scare.
You have ever po-goed or space-hopped.
You remember when Keith Chegwin & Maggie Philbin were the hottest romantic couple.
You wondered why your walkie-talkie didn't have the same range as those in the Red Hand Gang.
You were shocked by the controversial plot lines in Degrassi Junior High.
You tried to set up a "Famous Five" or "Secret Seven" gang with your school friends.
You tried to convince your Dad to fit a strip of red lights on the front of his Capri so it looked like KITT.
"Ca-vey Wa-vey!" means anything to you.
You ever had more than 10 sweets in a 10p mix-up.
Not only did you wear luminous clothing, but they were mismatched fingerless gloves and towelling socks.
You remember when Betamax was at the cutting edge of technology.
Conveyor belts regularly carried washing machines, deep-fat fryers and a cuddly toy.
You could have got away with it if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.
(Girls) You owned a pair of Pixie Boots, generally worn with leg warmers.
(Boys) You owned a pair of pale grey slip-ons, generally worn with white towelling socks.
Shiny grey flecked suits.
You rolled the sleeves of your suit jacket up
Ooh, you could crush a Grape!
You went to school with Pogo Patterson, Gripper Stebson, and Ro-land.
Fingermouse.
You were proud of your picture appearing in the Gallery.
You remember Look In magazine, and when it was only 20p
You wondered why you and your mates never encountered diamond thieves whilst out on your BMXs.
No 73?
You can remember what Quatro tasted like.
Your best mate had a soda stream at home and you were jealous
Benny - I know you, you're in my calculus class!
Andy - Gym
Benny - Your name is Jim?
