Growing up in the 90's

Just received this email from my brothers girlfriend. Made me feel so nostalgic...the 90's were awesome!

You made worms by squeezing your Vegemite or peanut butter crackers together.

The best parties always had fairy bread.

Blinky Bill, Mr Squiggle, Gumby, SuperTed, Widget The World Watcher and Samurai Pizza Cats.

Going to the Easter Show with a big group of friends from school once you were old enough to go without Mum and Dad.

Doing research for school projects by going to the library or looking up an encyclopaedia rather than using the internet.

Banana Man, Bangers and Mash and The Raggy Dolls.

Game Boy.

Buying those 6 packs of Coco Pops, Fruit Loops, Frosties, Rice Bubbles, Nutri-Grain and Corn Flakes so you could have a different one each day and then opening the packets really carefully and removing the cereal so you'd have a mini wardrobe afterwards You also most probably just let your parents eat the Corn Flakes.

Postman Pat, Fireman Sam and Lift Off (that show with the dirty, eyeless doll named EC).

Birthday parties at McDonald's.

A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month. No returns!

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.The best show ever made...

Crossing your heart, hoping to die, sticking a needle in your eye.

Don’t push me, push a push pop!

Nobody made "not" jokes... NOT!!

Bathurst stopped being Holden vs. Ford and all those European cars came in until they came to their senses.

Who shot Mr Burns?

Watching Captain Planet and then driving your parents mad by always singing the song.

That's so funny, I forgot to laugh.

You decorated your room with glow-in-the-dark stickers.

Feeling sad when your Tamagotchi died.

Seeing a small rack of DVDs in the video store and wondering if anyone ever rented them.

Getting up early to watch the Rage Top 50.

Friends when they were all actually just friends. Why didn't Phoebe and Joey get together?

Sonic the Hedgehog.

Watching The Simpsons back when it was funny, every night on Channel 10.

Power Rangers becoming cooler than the Ninja Turtles, even though the Turtles will always be cooler.

Watching South Park for the first time and being really excited by all the swearing.

Blowing on the Nintendo cartridge before putting it in the console to make sure it worked properly.

Vulcan, Tower, Flame... Australian Gladiators.

Pokemon! Gotta catch ‘em all!

Full Frontal, not Comedy Inc.

Downloading music from Napster.

Chatting with your buddies on ICQ.

Going to see Titanic.

The winner is… Sydney.

Mighty Max and Polly Pocket. Max and Polly always got lost because they were so bloody small.

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

John Eales captained the Wallabies and we won the World Cup.

Zoopa Doopa ice blocks were only 20c and if you couldn’t afford it, you asked the canteen lady to cut it in half so you could split it with a friend.

Listening to boy bands like Human Nature and girl bands like Girlfriend.

Barbie, not Bratz.

The Spice Girls.

Happy Meals were only $2.95 and the toys were simple but actually good.

Person 1: Who farted!?
Person 2: Whoever smelt it, dealt it!
Person 1: Whoever made the rhyme, committed the crime!

Thorpe won lots of gold medals and wasn’t so gay.

Opposite day.

Playing tackle Bull Rush at lunchtime and having tackling banned. You had to resort to grab 1-2-3 or tip. Same goes for footy.

Giving a friend a backage in the canteen line. If it was your best friend, you gave them a frontage.

Pogs and Looney Tunes Tazos.

You laughed at the fat kid on the Cottees cordial ad and changed the song to "My Dad picks his nose..."

You tried Dr. Pepper and hated it.

Begging your parents to go to McDonald’s for dinner.

Rocko’s Modern Life, Rugrats and Hey Arnold!

Noni, Monica and that bald guy named George on Play School.

Watching The Lion King and feeling Simba’s pain when Mufasa died. Disney just doesn’t make them like that anymore.

Soft serve cones were only 30c and they never tried to up-sell a Flake because they didn’t have it.

High five!

Up high, down low, too slow!

Watching Round the Twist and getting pissed off that the actors kept on changing. You still loved it though.

Watching that game show called Vidiot. Game shows didn't have to be educational back then, like That's Academic... that show sucks.

Collecting basketball cards, whether you followed basketball or not.

You always wished your parents had bought you a bigger Super Soaker for Christmas. Christmas is hot in Australia... the more water, the better.

Healthy Harold day was the best because you got to miss class to sit in a tiny caravan and listen to a talking giraffe.

Playing handball with Ace, King, Queen and Dunce and making up stupid rules as you went along.

Skipping ropes and Jump Rope for Heart Day.

Chewing the crappy gum in Bubble-O-Bill's nose and wishing they could just use Hubba Bubba instead.
