5. It was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

6. You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.

7. You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. (We also owned that game. And Keen Man, remember that one? I own that one even now, it's the best!)

8. You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side. (Okay, so she didn't buy one, but we had a special way of tying our shirts!!)

9. You played the game 'MASH'(Mansion, Apartment, Shelter, House) YES sooo much. We were addicted and made it into longer versions...colors of house, car, pets, color of bathrooms, bedrooms...wow!)

15. You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

16. You took lunch boxes to school...and traded Garbage Pailkids in the schoolyard.

17. You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets. (Those hurt!)

18. You still get the urge to say 'NOT' after every sentence.

19. You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged handmade friendship bracelets. (I used to wear these things on my ankles and had over 20 on one ankle at one time...)

21. You ever owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes.

22. After you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you kept saying 'I know you are, but what am I?'

23. You remember 'I've fallen and I can't get up'
