I {do not} Remember.... & Not Me! Monday all in one post!

It is a long weekend here in the province of Ontario. It is also the day before the kidlets go back to school.

I am not ecstatic about that. Honest.

So today I am being lazy....and very creative if I do say so myself. Laziness isn't totally a bad thing. I like to think that it gets you thinking outside of the box because you search for ways to complete things faster and in an easier way.

So today I bring you two posts in one.
You're welcome.

I am going to tell you some things I absolutely do not remember because I am young...very young.....have no wrinkles and no gray hairs. Really.

I am not 34. Despite the pictures you have seen, I am actually 23.

And since I am only 23, I absolutely do not remember these cards. Garbage Pail Kids existed long before my time so I never collected them, traded them and laughed hysterically when I saw boogers and vomit on them. Nope, not me!

I also never wore jelly shoes because they disappeared from the shelves before I was even born.

Since I am so young, I do not remember wearing these beauties and skating up and down the street with my friends wearing little skirts and making up our own special "routines". I am also too young to remember going to the roller rink every weekend and grooving to the tunes as we glided around in circles for hours on end. I never did that. Ever.

I have no idea who these men are. I never listened to any of their music. Nope. Not me!

I did not wear side ponytails.

Or bicycle shorts.

And I most definitely did not watch Top Gun 987 times.....

and Dirty Dancing 1254 times.

Nope, I would not do such things.

Because I wasn't even around yet.


Because I was not around, I was not obsessed with this pretty lady! I did not listen to all of her records and know all of the words. I don't even know what "records" are. Geesh!

I absolutely, definitely do not remember when computers looked like this. Nope,no way.

And I have only seen this show in re-runs.....many, many years later.

Because I am only 23.

Not 34.

Happy Labour Day everyone!

I am not 34 either and none of these things ring a bell.

I don't remember any of those things either and I most definitely did not love wearing my hair in a side pony tail and I can't wait until Claire's hair is long enough. ;)

Shana said...

Sheesh, talk about being lucky to not be old enough to know what any of those things are. if I wasn't then I might be a little nostalgic for such great memories but since i am not that old either then I won't be. Great post!

Oh, girl, you and I should be such friends because I didn't know that was Milli Vanilli in that picture, and I don't know the words to "Wishing Well" and I don't have erotic images floating through my head for the rest of the day and I have NEVER said, "Gag me with a spoon!" Love ya, Kristina P.S. I still loved my big hair! P.S.S I wish I could cross the U.S. border and have lunch with you, but one of us might ask, "Where's the beef?"

Oh, I so enjoyed this post. Not one of those things, not one, (OK, all of them!) brought back many many happy memories. Surprisingly happy, since it all looks so goofy in retrospect. I must be 23 too!
