I got this from both Charlotte and Emily and I really liked both of their posts so I thought I'd give it a go myself.
I saw the original Broadway production of "Annie" with Andrea McCardle and after the show my father bought me the cast recording of the music. It was a vinyl record, of course. I played it endlessly on my record player and memorized every song. That is probably when I fell in love with theater.
Speaking of vinyl, I can remember buying the 45s of "Pop Muzik" by M and "Another Brick in the Wall" by Pink Floyd. Also committed those songs to memory. I think I can still sing them word for word.
I remember when Dr. Scholls sandals were all the rage. They were banned from my elementary school because a girl broke her ankle in them -- or so we were told. I had blue ones.
The first VHS movie I ever watched was "Death Race 2000" at my California cousins' house. The VHS machine was as big as my printer/scanner/fax is today and the "remote control" was on a long wire.
I was at sleepaway camp when Diana Spencer married Prince Charles. One of the counselors snuck me into the counselor's cabin to watch. I also saw the movie "E.T." while at sleepaway camp on "lifer's night out." (A lifer is someone who goes to sleepaway camp for all 8 weeks.)
I waited in line to see "Star Wars."
I watched Luke and Laura get married, but I never thought Luke was good looking. That perm was hideous to me even then.
My best friend and I used to pass notes back and forth on actual paper. Sometimes we'd decorate the notes with stickers.
I wore stirrup pants and thought they looked good. Considering how young and thin I was at the time, they probably didn't look that bad, just not great.
I cried at the last M*A*S*H episode.
The first computer I used was running DOS and the first time I used an Apple I saw the light. I have been a computer lover ever since.
Our first home printer was a dot matrix printer and it was so cool. We were one of the first people I knew to have a printer at home. I used to love to tear the edges off the print outs and decorate with them like streamers.
I only knew 2 people in college who had their own computers.
The first president I was old enough to vote for was Bill Clinton.
I was married in the previous century.
