    '80's = one big blur.
    Too much Shaeffers or Milwaukees Best, and perhaps a few other chemicals along the way.

    That's one thing i really really miss. Weekend morning cartoons. Heck, there's not even many weekday afternoon cartoons anymore... At least none worth watching these days...

    My high school's 20th year reunion is coming up later this year. The biggest consolation is that many of my co-workers have been surprised to hear that I am in my late 30's.

    Unless, of course, that means that I am either really immature, or they expected that I should be preparing for the 40th year reunion instead of the 20th!

    When I was a kid, I had no idea where that word came from (though I used it). When I found out many years later how it was "really" spelled ("psych"), I was like. "Ohhhhh... That actually makes a little sense!"

    I'm guessing many people were like me and had no idea how to spell it.
