MeganLynn I LOVE oregon trail!!!



Does anyone remember "jordons". Michael Jordon came out with his own athletic shoes & everyone thought they were amazing. You were the shiznit in middle school if you wore them. My whole girls bsktball team had matching pairs. Does anyone else remember the teletubbies phase?

Yes! One of my friends bought me a huge pack of 1000+ Lisa Frank stickers for my birthday in second grade. I remember thinking it was the best gift ever. I stuck them all on paper and I still have them

Iria If I ever meet you in person, sure. I don't own enough to make it worth paying shipping fees.

Can I have them?



I'm not a "trendsetter" and probably won't carry them around campus either, but I could use them at home.

silverose It is weird that both the 80s and 90s list are so similar. But I guess it makes sense. Most of both apply to me. I was a child in the 80's and preteen and teen in the 90's.

So, did anyone else wear 90210 perfume?

WonderRandy I spent most of the 90's (well the late 80's into the late 90's) under the influence of drugs and alcohol (or recovering from the night before of drugs and alcohol). I was either messed up or I was suffering the aftereffects of being messed up. Acid was my drug of choice for several years, and I was rip-roaring drunk 4-5 nights a week. But through it all, I was a hard-core stoner. I didn't hide it (hell, I never even hid the bong). I was a mess.



over the last 8-10 years, I have learned moderation, and have given up most of my "meds". As I grew tired of them, they disappeared from my life. and I went completely clean and sober a few months ago. The 90's were without a doubt the greatest and most terrible time of my life.



Parties, Concerts, Dead Shows, Festivals, Tie-Dyes, Dancing, Laughing and Friends.

Poverty, Homelessness, Self-Destruction, Irresponsibility, Disappointment, Distrust, Criminal Behavior, Jail.



And I'm still alive!!

I wanted to be on the Carmen Sandiego TV show soooo bad. I was first introduced to her through a computer game. Yes, it was black-and-white, as were the first few incarnations of Oregon Trail that I experienced.



I used to watch the carmen sandiego show all the time. i think i still have the computer game, too.





oregon trail is an old favorite, as well.

Add me to the list of people who hated those pictures!!!! I would stare at them for EVER and only ONCE did I see the magic picture....

granted, I was often stoned while I was staring through them, so it wasn't that horrible, but the letdown of not seeing the surprise was always pretty upsetting....

I still have some sweet slammers.





Being born in 82, I "grew up" with a mix of both 80's and 90's fads- and missed out on some of both as well.



Lotsa memories in both lists

What bugged me was the guys that wanted their eyebrows notched like Vanilla Ice.
