You know you're a 90's kid if...

(Reposted from my sisters blog - Avocado Thoughts - Finally)

"You can sing the rap to "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air""
Can't say I can, I know the tune but not all the words...

"You've worn skorts and felt stylish"
Nope, not done that.

"You yearned to be part of the Baby-Sitters club"
Never particularly yearned to join it, but I did enjoy the books, thought they were really good, loved the idea of Claudia's original outfits and Stacey's smartness. Never particularly wanted the pressure of taking care of someone else's children at such a young age...

"You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons."
Definately! Smurfs were my favourite, don't remember much else apart from Sailor moon, watched that too...

"You wore a ponytail on the side of your head and had fluffed bangs"
Not the ponytail, what the heck are "fluffed bangs" I assume 'bangs' are a fringe, and I did have an odd fringe but... not sure if they'd count as "fluffed bangs".

"You remember reading "Goosebumps""
I knew the series, never read it though, wasn't encouraged to and wasn't and still aren't particularly into horror. I read some stuff that is horror but I aim mainly at other things I really like fantasy books and some of that includes horror but is not actually horror itself.

"You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, wax off""

"You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf."
Nope, never really thought about it. Just thought she was cool.

"You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school."
Yep, I had a red plastic lunchbox with a yellow handle and a picture of teddy bears on the front.

"You remember the craze then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books."
Not sure what slam books are, used to have slap bracelets one or two, might still have one somewhere... Never knew they were banned...

"You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not..."
Can't say I do.

"You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together."
Who? Power Rangers isn't one of my strong points.

"You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates"
I remember that I did skate in four wheeled skates but I thought there were inline skates by that time...

"You wore socks over leggings scrunched down"
Not sure bout the socks... Don't have a strong memory bout that, I did used to have some black and white checkered leggings with sunflowers on them (I really liked them), though, looking back I think they weren't my best look but then again, they weren't the most hideous leggings in the world.

"You remember boom boxes vs. cd players"
Nope sorry not sure bout that one...

"You knew what it meant to say "Care Bear Stare""
I've only the vaguest recollection of Care Bears and it's only the 'they were cartoons in different colours weren't they?' rather than detailed memories.

"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""
I did love 'Saved by the Bell', Screech was really funny, and Kelly and Zack... but I wouldn't say I could recall their life stories though.

"You played and or collected "Pogs""
Haven't a clue what 'Pogs' is...

"You used to pretend to be a MIGHTY MORPHIN Power Ranger"
Not my thing.

"... and you owned a Skip It"
Nah, just nicked my sisters.

"You had at least one GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere"
I did have one sometime...

"Yikes pencils and erasers were fantastic"
Don't remember them by name.

"You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes."
Hey yeah! I remember those, they were cool, I only did use them on my ears and I got my ears pierced at 10 so didn't need 'em for long. I used to love these strawberry ones ...

"You know the Macarena by heart."
Doesn't everyone?

""Talk to the hand" ... enough said"
Heh, yeah...

"You thought Brain would finally take over the world"
Well duh, after all that planning...

"2 words ... SPICE GIRLS"
Never really was into them.

So I suppose I'm a late 90s kid, lol :)
