I planned on being lazy and replying rather than posting in my own LJ, only I exceeded the size limit for comments. And I can't answer the music one as I'm still trapped in my music rut -- every day at work I play one of the Miami Vice music collections (over and over until it's time to go home). I prefer the all-instrumental disks but I do love Smuggler's Blues.

1. How old were you in 1980? Twenty

2. How old were you in 1989? Twenty-nine. What, the quiz's author can't do simple math?

3. Were you a Toys R' Us Kid? Nope. I wonder if I'm older than Toys R' Us. (goes off to search on Google...) Nope, founded in 1948. I don't think it had a big presence in Michigan when I was a kid though -- I remember the ads from the 1970s, but I was in my teens by then and didn't really care.

4. Did you watch "Transformers"? Nope.

5. Did you see E.T. on the big screen? Yes.

6. Did you own a Lite Bright? We had one, but whether it was mine or my sister's I couldn't say.

7. Who is your favorite Golden Girl? I've seen less than a handful of episodes, but I'd have to say Bea Arthur. I think she's great.

8. When someone says "Who you gonna call?" Ghostbusters!

9. What was your favorite toy(s) in the eighties? Hmmm. I was in my twenties then, I'm not sure I had actual toys. Maybe my computer and playing Mahjohngg?

10. Did you have a Pogo Ball? No, I don't think so. I don't recognize the name.
(Back to google...) Nope, can't recall ever having one of those in the family.

11. Did you listen to New Kids on the Block? I'm sure I must have, as I've always listened to rock-type stations on the radio.

12. What New Kid did you have a crush on? None of them.

13. Did you play M.A.S.H? Nope.

14. Did you watch The Care Bears? NO!

15. Did you have Jelly bracelets? No.

16. Did you have a charm necklace and/or bracelet? Yes, but I stole it from my sister.

17. Did you have a Glo Worm? Nope.

18. Did you ever own a slap bracelet? (Back to google...) Nope, but going by the description and the pictures shown on wikipedia, I would have liked one.

19. "The Breakfast Club" or "Sixteen Candles"? Never saw either one.

20. Did you have a crazy hair style? Most people probably would have thought so -- I've had extremely short (1/4" long) hair more than a few times. Or mullets. I still like mullets; I think they combine the best of long and short hair from the wearer's point of view.

21. What was your first bike? I think it was a Schwinn and was blue in color. I don't remember it exactly, but it was a standard bike with fat balloon tires.

22. Name one thing you still own from your childhood: My baby dishes.

23. Did you have a Cabbage Patch Kid? No.

24. Did you dress like Madonna? No.

25. Rainbow Brite or Strawberry Shortcake? Neither, thank you!

26. Did you watch Miami Vice? Yes; part of the first season during the original broadcast and then at least the first two seasons after becoming addicted to fanfic.

27. Did you own a pair of Jelly Shoes? Nope.

28. Did you own a Trapper Keeper? (sigh, off to google...) Oh! Those! I called them binders or notebooks and yes, I had one or two. I didn't like them very much though and went to binders with stacks of college-ruled paper instead.

29. Atari or Nintendo? Neither. Not even wii.

30. Did you play Pac-Man? Yes.

31. Which was better: He-Man or She-Ra? (Who? I refuse to go to Google for this one!)

32. What movie scared you the most? Alien. I quit going to scary movies after that one.

33. Did you try to dance like Michael Jackson? Yes. Couldn't do it.

34. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "Flux Capacitor"? Back to the Future!

35. What other colors did Pepsi come in? It came in colors? (Wasn't there a red and a clear? Beats me though -- I didn't/don't drink the stuff.)

36. Roger Rabbit or Howard the Duck? Roger Rabbit. And Jessica!

37. Did you ever beg your parents to have your school picture taken with the 'LASER' background? No.

38. Do you know what the Ninja Rap is? Not off hand. (Back to Google.) Hmm. I don't recognize the lyrics (although I do recognize the name "Vanilla Ice"). It wasn't used as the theme to the Ninja Turtles tv show, was it?

39. Do you know why people cringe when they hear the word BUCKNER? No idea and with 4,890,000 hits for buckner, Google's not being any help at all.

40. Can you name the family members from National Lampoons Vacation movies? No, thank goodness. National Lampoon's Vacation movies are not a good match for me and my sense of humor.

41. Wally-World or Europe? (I don't get the question either. Where I want to go? Both. Where I can afford to go? Wallyworld.)

42. What was your favorite movie from the 80's? Um, there were movies in the 1980s? Did I go to any of them? (stares off into space for a while) What are my favorite movies? Well, there's Real Genius. And Hopscotch. I wonder when they were filmed... (yep, back to google) Ah, 1985 and 1980, respectively. They're so very different I don't think they can be compared and I can't pick between the two. There are parts of both movies that are extremely dear to my heart.
