Okay, so I wasn't a teen until 1997, but it's eerie how many of these apply to me. I guess it's because so many of them carried over into the late nineties. Even scarier, though, is my vast knowledge of 80s pop culture (I know more about the 80s than my friend who's 3 years older than I am. [btw, I was born in '84])

what i also find fascinating:

my brother and i, although we're 6 years apart (me being the older), we are EXTREMELY alike. so much that some people would swear we're twins.

until i make some odd early 80's reference, and he goes "what? what's an 8-track?"

and then i feel old and crotchety.

I'm too sexy for my cat, too sexy for my cat, too sexy for my pussy, my pussy, my pussycat...

that's what i need to do as a musician: write just ONE catchy song, so that i can a) be listened to and tossed on compilation cd's for years to come, and b) be the answer to a trivia question :D
