WhoooHoooo! Great idea for a TT!!

3. Fast Times at Ridgemont High

4. Care Bears

5. The outrageous color selections

6. Anything having to do with spandex

7. Music, 80's music, favorite? I think I'm on brain overload... can't. choose. just. one. arg - if you're going to force me to choose then I will say Love Shack. hehe :)

8. I can't remember

9. bicycle. I loved to ride my bike everywhere.

10. Reagan. I know I'm not original, but the more I learn about him, the more I really really admire him.

11. Madonna - oddly enough for the same reason I like my punk rock today ;-)

12. I woulda been in big trouble if I drove a car anytime during that decade :-0

13. Nope. I had absolutely no, none, zero, knowledge that I could actually attend what was called a "concert" other than my sisters flute recital.


Thanks, that was fun! Happy TT :-)
