Remember this?

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF...


You wore a rainbow shirt that was half-sleeves, and
the rainbow went up one
sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.


You made baby chocolate cakes in your Easy Bake Oven
and washed them down
with snow cones from your Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.


You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a
stethoscope that actually
worked.


You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic
basket with flowers on
it.


You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller
blades) that had metal
wheels.


You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit
it!)


You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.


You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots
for snowy days.


You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie," not to
mention the "Dorothy Hamill"
because your Mom was sick of braiding your hair.
People sometimes thought
you were a boy.


Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized
possession.


You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.


You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.


You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink
and purple satiny
shredded outfits.


You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing
set with the trapeze.
The swing set tipped over at least once.


You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every
imaginable color.


You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones
with hard sole & the
buckle). You also had a pair of salt-water sandals.


You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad;
you wore that Little
House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt
with the high neck in at
least one school picture; and you despised Nellie
Olson!


You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink.


Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" or
"feathers" and you kept
it "pretty" with the comb you kept in your back
pocket.


You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her
friends, Blueberry
Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.


You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was
metal, not plastic.


You and your girlfriends would fight over which of
the Dukes of Hazzard was
your boyfriend.


Every now and then "It's a Hard Knock Life" from the
movie, "Annie" will
pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it
the whole day.


YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!


It was a big event in your household each year when
the "Wizard of Oz"
would come on TV. Your mom would break out the
popcorn and sleeping bags!


You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: "Who
will I marry. Shaun
Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"


You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night
Fever, and Fame
soundtrack record album.


You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn
and Popsicle-stick God's
eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a
plastic loom. Pot
holders - I believe they were called loom loopers".


You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on
your t-shirts!


You used to tape record songs off the radio by
holding your portable tape
player up to the speaker.


You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that
came when you ordered
books from the Weekly Reader book club. Double score
if it was a teddy bear
dressed in clothing.


You learned everything you needed to know about girl
issues from Judy Blume
books (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)


You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was
about aerobics.


You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or
shoelaces with heart or
rainbow designs.


You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.


You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a
Sit-n-Spin.


You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.


You spent all your allowance on smurfs and stickers
for your sticker album!

I still have my Gremlins metal lunch box

My Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag is still at my parent's camp

I had white Strawberry Shortcake roller skates with pink wheels

I got a Fox and the Hound picture record for my birthday from Karen Deal, it is presently framed and hanging behind me.

I was born in '82 but most of that holds true.
