They are already defining their generation!

I read this over the shoulder of my daughter, who was looking at a friend's My Space page (and no, she still doesn't have one.) LOL.

Remember when beepers was the thing to have : )
If you are under the age of should not read this and if you
do, you should not repost this.
Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid. It's not
like you could remember the original Simpsons.
I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it.

You're a 90's kid if: You can finish this [ice ice _ _ _ _ ]
You remember watching: -Doug -Ren & Stimpy
-Pinky and the Brain
-AAAAAAAH Real Monsters!
-Rockos modern Life.

You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!"
You just cant resist finishing this . . . "Iiiiiiin west philidelphia
born and raised . . ."

You remember:
-Step by Step
-Family Matters
-Boy Meets World.

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a
Saturday to watch cartoons. You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day
in computer class at school.

You remember reading "Goosebumps" You took plastic cartoon lunch
boxes to school. You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every
sentence . . . not

when everyhting was settled by:
-rock paper scissors or
-bubble gum bubble gum in a dish or
-daddy had a donkey inky binky bonky.

when cops and robbers was a daily activity. when we played Hide and go seek
until our legs grew numb.

when we used to obey our parents You used to listen to the radio all day
long just to record your FAVORITE song of ALL time.
"Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" was both a game and a TV game
Captain Planet. He's a Hero. You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and
Tommy, the green ranger, were meant to be together. ???

You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.
You always wanted to send in a tape to America's Funniest Home Videos . . . but
never taped anything funny. You remember watching Home Alone 1, 2 , and 3 . . .
and tried to pull the pranks on "intruders"

You remember watching:
-The Magic School Bus
-Reading Rainbow on PBS.

You remember when Yo-Yos were cool. You remember those Where's Waldo books.
You remember eating Warheads.

You remember watching:
-the 1st Batman
-Ninja Turtles
-3 Ninjas movies.

You remember Ring Pops. You remember drinking Surge, and Tang. If you
remember when every thing was "da BOMB!" When they made the new lunchables so
that you could make pizza AND tacos. You remember boom boxes vs. cd players.
Making those little paper fortune cookie things, and then predicting your life
with them.

You played and/or collected "Pogs" :) You had at least one
Tamagotchi, GigaPet, or Nano and brought it everywhere. . . . Furbies. You
haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet. And Windows
95 was the best. You watched the original cartoons of Rugrats, Power Rangers,
and Ninja Turtles. Michael Jordan was a king. YIKES pencils and erasers were the

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand. You remember when
the new Beanie Babies and Talking Elmo were always sold out
You collected those Beanie Babies.
Carebears Gak was the coolest stuff invented. Lambchop's song never
ended. The old dollar bills. Silver dollars, which were cool to have. You
remember a time before the WB. You collected all the Troll dolls

If you even know what an original walkman is. You remember wanting to sit
on the orange Nickelodeon couch. You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of
the Dark?" You know the Macarena by heart.

"Talk to the hand" . . . enough said You always said, "Then why don't you
marry it!" You went to McDonald's to play in the playplace. You remember playing
on merry go rounds at the playground.

Before the MySpace frenzy . . . Before the Internet & text
messaging . . . Before Sidekicks & iPods . . . Before MIKE JONES . . .
Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX . . . Before Spongebob . . . Back when you put off
the 5 hours of homework you had every night. When light up sneakers were

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs. When gas was $0.95 a gallon
& Caller ID was a new thing. When we recorded stuff on VCRs. When we called
the radio station to request songs to hear off of our walkman. When checking out
drawing books and that one book about the rainbow fish from the library was THE
cool thing to do. You had slap braclets! We had the cool no tye shoe strings
that curled you could get them in every color . . . . Way back. Before we
realized all this would eventually disappear.

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!! Post this in your
bulletin if you remember these days . . . .

Anyway, that's what this generation looks back on with nostalgia.

I feel so... ancient. This is worse than the ones about MY generation. People I knew as babies are now old enough to be nostalgic. Ugh.

And when you look at what they are focusing on, it's amazing, they are truly hitting what will be "do you remember" moments of the decade with this list.

Who knew that a 14 year old could be so self aware?
