  1. I want to make a list like this!

    I had a Michael Jackson t-shirt with "rhinestones" on his glove. I wore it with fake black leather zipper jeans.

    I had a Disney Dancersize album that I danced my ass off to. I had an Etch-a-Sketch Animator and a Speak n' Spell. I had a Barbie Dream House! And a convertible! And a Barbie swim pool with a shower that worked. I had a phone that was in a transparent casing and showed its inner workings, many of which were neon.

  2. You should totally make your list and post it 'over there.' And don't forget to provide pictures.

    I had forgotten Speak N Spells existed before you mentioned them.

  3. You had way too much cool stuff. I think your parents should have disciplined you more often.

  4. This is only the tip of the iceberg. I had just about every Star Wars toy ever made.

    I was spoiled.

  5. No joke: Who the hell is Amy Carter?

    I had an autographed photo of Tom Wopat from the Dukes of Hazzard.

    I also had a pair of Jordache and a pair of Sasson jeans -- irregulars because they were cheaper.


  6. ZOMG. Amy Carter was President Jimmy Carter's daughter.
