And I never thought Doogie Howser was hot, but I do remember watching Starship Troopers and not being able to stop refering to him by that name... lol

i dug the proto-german outfit he wore too. very serious.

the animated version of the movie has the same/similar character,
but it's VERY not doogie like. quite scary sometimes though. six
dvds worth out on the market apparently.
Ko'Shall Viperkoshall on January 8th, 2003 06:20 pm (UTC)

Thank you. I've surfing communities, friends lists, and stumbled across yours. When reading this post, I just started to smile and remember a lot of things. Thanks, I needed that.

Hm. Most of these are just a bit past when I "grew up" so to speak; makes me wonder what someone defines as the era in which they grew up. Maybe those years from 5 to 10 or so.

However I do wish to be buried in a Masters of the Universe lunchbox. Preferably with my ashes in the thermos bottle, and a PBJ sandwich on wonder bread packed inside. Maybe two: One for the museum when they dig me up (and realize of course that I was a God) and the other for the archaeologist who finds me (since I have been on digs, and I know how hungry you can get).

Also Atari was more on the late 70's; it was 1982 when the whole video game/home computer market totally blew up. And Atari went down with them. The true system of the 80's was probably the orig Nintendo.

Wonderbread - for some reason I failed to truly appreciate all of my mum's homemade bread as a kid. PBJs & grilled cheese (with the dreaded Velveeta, no less) on wonderbred.

But now I remember her fresh soughdough with a certain longing...

Well, the thing about W-bread is that it's going to *last* 2-3,000 years in a lunchbox. I try to be considerate for the guys digging up my tomb.

If you're going for longevity in terms of millenia, then Twinkies are your best bet. As far as I can tell they contain no actual *food*.
