I remember nearly all of that! Do you have one for those who were born in the 70s? Though, then again, I was very young in the 70s and probably wouldn't remember any of it. But the 80s were kindergarten through most of middle school for me.

I was born in '73-so I was very much around in the 8's-but not for SOME of this stuff. I know my sister was more into Blossom and NKOTB. She is four years younger than me, so some of it must have been as I was in HS in the late 80's.
I will send it to her. I think she could relate more.
But these are the ones that stuck out to me! :D

I was born in the 60's (I know-I'm rather old) Here's a list off the top of my head:

You know you were born in the 60's if:

1-your parents wore bell bottoms-and so did you.
2-growing up-you coveted Farrah Fawcetts hair, and pretended to be an "Angel"
3-you grew up with Albums and 8 tracks-used a turntable with a diamond needle.
4-Donny Osmond was "dreamy"
5-you remember when Michael Jackson was a cute little black kid.
6-you remember when Elvis died (I was 11)
7-you had a "Parachute" bag
8-You wore "candies" (They were shoes)
9-you had a refrigerator in "Avacado" or "Goldenrod"
10-you got to play outside without your parents-only your friends (gasp)
11-if you wanted to play with someone-you just went to their house to "Call on them"
12-Ice cream from the ice cream man was 10 cents something big was 25 cents.
13-The family car weighed twice as much as the SUVs of today.
14 your seatbelt was your dads arm.
15-you had "Rainbow" pants
16-you remember when Barbie only came in "Malibu".
17-Light blue Pro-keds. Need I say more?
18-you dated a guy with a Trans-am.
19-"You're dead after school" was heard in the halls of your school-constantly. But there were hardly ever any fights-and when there were-it was no big deal-no one sued, no one was suspended.
20-The Partridge Family.
21-you remember rotary phones, and noone had touch tone service (AND you got your phone for free from the phone company)
22-the first time you saw a computer was in or after high school, and you learned Basic and pascal-no windows (Bill Gates was only a baby too)


There's LOADS more-but gotta get the kids to school, and get ready for the vet....

I'm starting to twitch.....

How about adding:

Watching TVLand with your kids and remembering when the episode of Green Acres originally aired!

Filling my car with gas for $2 (I had a VW bug...the original kind)

Getting a "princess" phone for your 16th birthday

Going to the beauty parlor to get a "Shag" just like Jane Fonda.

Body art that didn't involve piercing or tatooing!

I was born in '78 and remember everything but NKOTB (I would probably remember if someone told me what it stands for). Actually I still have scrunchies and still wore them on my wrist till about 2 years ago. It was so handy to have them right on my arm so I could throw my hair back whenever I wanted. Now I have to root through my purse to find something to put my hair back!

Thanks for adding the 70's one, I kinda made this 80's one up myself when some of my friends and I got a lil tipsy the other night and started reminesing (sp?). It was great fun and I wanted to share with you guys!
