Are you a 90's kid?

You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!"

You just cant resist finishing this... "Iiiiiiin west philladelphia
born and
raised..."

You remember TGIF on ABC and wouldnt miss it

You remember when Kurt Cobain, 2Pac, River Phoenix, and Selena died.

You know that "WOAH" comes from Joey from "Blossom" and that "How
Rude!"
comes from Stephanie from "Full House"

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at
school.

You begged for some GAK, and when you got that they came out with
scented
GAK, and when you got that they came out with funny scented GAK.....

You remember reading "Goosebumps"

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

You danced to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, Females: had a new motto,
Males:
got a whole lot gay-er. (so tell me what you want, what you really
really
want.)

You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam
books.....

You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every
sentence...Not...

You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record "Your
FAVORITE
song of ALL time"....with a tape recorder held up to the radio loL!!

Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game
show.

Captain Planet.

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger
were
meant to be together. (this was meant for young 80s children)

When playing power rangers with friends you fought over who got to be
who............and still all ended up being Tommy.

You remember when super nintendo's became popular.

You always wanted to send in a tape to America's Funniest Home
Videos... but
never taped anything funny.

You remember watching home alone 1, 2 , and 3........and tried to pull
the
pranks on "intruders"

"I've fallen and I can't get up"

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates

Two words... Trapper Ke eper.

You wore socks over leggings scrunched down

"Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black, with
silver
buttons, buttons, buttons, all down her back, back, back" SHE ASKED HER
MOTHER MOTHER MOTHER FOR FIFTY CENTS CENTS CENTS TO SEE THE ELEPHANTS
PHANTS
PHANTS JUMP OVER THE FENCE THE FENCE THE FENCE
he jumped so high high high he touched the sky sky sky and he didnt
come
back back back til the forth of july ly ly he jumped so low ow ow he
stubbed
his toe toe toe and thats the end end end of the elephants show show
show

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players

Writing M.A.S.H. notes.

You remember New Kids on The Block when they were cool

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By
The
Bell"

You played and/or collected "Pogs"

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it
everywhere

You watched the original Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles
< BR>Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff!

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.(
pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)

You remember when the new Beanie Babies and talking Elmo were always
sold
out.

You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at
the
corners of your eyes.

You remember a time before the WB.

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

You know the Macarena by heart.

"Talk to the hand" ... enough said

You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!"


When we were younger:

Before the MySpace frenzy...

Before the Internet & text messaging...

Before Sidekicks & iPods...

Before MIKE JONES...

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX...

...Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & amp; Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our
walkmans.

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!!

Wait Wait....let's not forget OLD NICK shows....Alex Mac, My Brother
and Me,
Rocko's Modern Life, the ORIGINAL Rugrats, DOUG!! Cousin Skeeter, Hey
Arnold, Clarissa Explains it All, Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude! The OLD
All
That, Pete and Pete yeah the OLD nick days rules

C'mon man, why'd you have to go and post something like that? I'm not old enough to be part of a "remember when" list...but the old Nick shows were awesome & Jason is definitely better than Tommy. (Jason's the red fanger for anyone who can't remember)

Ok, I feel old. I'm flippin 22 and I remember every one of those things mentioned. Then, just to maybe redeem myself, I showed it to my gf's sister who was born in 91... Didn't know half the stuff one there, and I even asked about the first Gulf War and she said "What? There was a war in the 90's?" Hmph.

You remember when super nintendo's became popular.

Did Game Gear's count? I had the Bevis & Butthead game. It was sweet!

You played and/or collected "Pogs"

Thoes things were awesome. I had a few hundred of them

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano

Yup

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

Yup...good show

You know the Macarena by heart.

"Talk to the hand" ... enough said

Camp Anawanna!
We hold you in our hearts!
And when we think about you,
it makes me wanna fart!
It's "I hope we never part."
Now get it right or pay the price!

Anyone remember the rest?
