Back in the Day…

I’ve been reminiscing, y’all. Big time. I’m sure if you are like me and grew up in the eighties and early nineties (Shout out to the class of 93!), some of this is familiar to you. Email me to add to the list.
leg warmers
Parachute pants
Asymetric Bob Hairstyles
Kwame Polka Dot shirts
British Knights
Big Daddy Kane vs. LL Cool J
Biker shorts
Blue Jeans with writing across the bottom like “Poison.” (huh?)
The Wop
The Smurf (a dance for all my people down south)
FAME (You want fame? Well, Fame costs!)
Atari (Pacman, Galaga, Centipede, Pong)
Going to Mammoth Cave or the Falls of the Ohio EVERY SINGLE YEAR in grade school (That one is just for my people down in Kentucky)
My mom watching Dallas, Knots Landing, Dynasty, and Falcon Crest (I forgot, who shot J.R.?)
Rapping and Beatboxing in the cafeteria…or the bathroom because it sounded better (I didn’t know anything about acoustics then.)
Getting Chips, Pop, and a sausage with onions and mustard between Black Achievers meeting and Choir Rehearsal on Saturday (that’s also for my people in Louisville, KY)

Can you believe that I actually belonged to a group of girls who called themselves “Pink Ladies” (go Grease lightning!)

Even worse, can you believe that I had a Thriller and a Beat It jacket?

BTW, Who knew that LeVar Burton was prophet? LOL I really think the show Reading Rainbow spoke into my life when I was in 1st grade. – “Butterflies in the sky, I can fly twice as high. Take a look. It’s in a book. The reading rainbow…”

Aaaahhhh, the good old days.

  1. Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net( no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet( in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
