Glasses weren't just cheap on the NHS, they were free.

When I was eight, our TV was Black and white, took two minutes to warm up, and only had two channels, both of which started at four and ended at half past ten.

Still we watched England win the world cup on it, and it showed me a man walk on the moon. For real.

Blue Peter was Chris Trace and Auntie Val Singleton, and kids got one programme a day.

And, we had a child serial killer in the neighbourhood, so the safety thing was a myth.

Still, its all perspective, I guess.

Mel, I'd like to know you. You sound old beyond your years. Here's a tip. Real is what you make it.

I had pics of "the" Coreys, and Tom Cruise on my walls...next to the rainbow unicorn ones Laughing

I went everywhere alone, or almost alone. Our house was about 2 blocks from the mall (well if you cut across the empty field and the tracks) So I went there by myself or with friends when I was 8.

Everyone thought my parents were cool because they got the cassette adapter for their 8 track tape player in the car, so we could listen to real music.

In grade 8 my best friend and I, of course this was when AIDS hit the media, and everyone and anyone was talking about safe sex, went to the drug store, bought I think 50 condoms and went around handing them out for our "national condom" week. We even had catchy rhymes for it all...funniest thing was I think I was the most experienced out of all my friends.... I french kissed a boy in the schools dark room (I loved photog. class)

I loved Another World! I miss it. *sniff* So over the top. *sniff* How many comas and kidnappings did Rachel experience? I lost count.

I admit to a David Hasselhoff a la Knight Rider crush but mostly because the other girls had crushes on Rick Springfield, a young and not so squirrely Tom Cruise, Duran Duran, Rex Smith, Patrick Swayze, the rest of the Outsiders cast, and Ricky Schroder. I felt bad for David Hasselhoff -- alone in his car, talking to the dashboard, singing horrible songs (still have his cassette tape, Knight Rocker -- don't judge me. But it is shit.) so I decided to crush on him. Yup yup yup.

I preferred the poster with the cute kitten stuck in the tree with the caption "hang in there". It was a nice foil to my mom's Desiderata poster crap.

I don't know if I can answer that for you as I have never been to the movies as a date. I always used to hang with my crowd and we would all go places together. My first husband and I went on our first date a month after our wedding lol! We met at Uni and just osmosed into marriage. Thinking about it, a movie is a bad choice for a date imho, after all - how do you talk?


(oh! I just got a whisper in my ear Embarassed it isn't about talking ...... )

How naive am I? lol!

I lost a fiver on WHAM. I said that Andrew Ridgely was the gay one.

I subscribe to the "Harry met Sally" theory. With a man and a woman there's always a sexual element.

I don't know about that, I have several male friends and that is where it stops. Maybe it helps that I am a petrolhead? Also I am very interested in science subjects and possess a logical mind (rare, but it happens lol!) I refuse to think it is because I am ugly haha Wink

I am not saying that men and women can't be platonic friends. Of course they can. I have plenty. it's just that there is always a sexual element between heterosexual men and women. Thinking "I don't fancy you, you're just a friend" is a sexual statement, even if it is a denial. Straight guys and girls don't need to think that about each other. It's all part of life's rich tapestry, and it's wonderful. Adult life and relationships , well, that's a huge mainefield, and we all negotiate it in different ways. I find I make better friends with women than men, and I really like that about myself. Even when it isn't going anywhere, it's still fun to play the flirty flirty games. My advice is to stay centred, and play it all as it comes. And vote Boris for Mr Munster of course.

Boris is absolutely right. And that's what makes gay male friends great because they don't have some or the tendencies some women have that piss me off, and they have no intention of doing me, or think about if I want to do them. You could flash em a million times and nothing. Although, I didn't know my last friend was bi. affraid

I was a sixties kid. For me the eighties were about being politically active. Riots and marches, and Thatcher OUT OUT OUT.

I stopped watching TV, and didn't bother with the charts much after about 84.

Started to write left-wing agit prop theatre plays, and smoked a shedload of hash.

Billy Bragg, the Smiths, everything mattered.

Hating Yuppies, wearing para boots and military surplus gear, with the obligatory Yasser Arafat scarf. Hating AHA, and Bros, and WHAM, and all that anodyne bullshit.

Hating the Royal Weddings. Loving the cricket, the football, the endless stream of short-term girlfriends. I listened to the WALL about a million times.

We fought a war against the establishment, and we lost. The world hasn't been the same since.

Now we have 24 hour kids tv, and its Saturday morning all the time.

Sex Pistols were right. No future.

To be fair, the youngsters of today are carrying on your traditions of political activism, Tory hating, and hating royal weddings. We even wen one step further and managed to attack a Prince and his horse.

The fight wasn't lost, it was just put on hold for a while. Razz
