Some of these I was a little too young for, but most are frighteningly relevant. I was born in 82 so like the "Gremlins" movie was too scary for me to watch. But Ramona was the coolest! BTW, is it sad that I went and tracked down the original My Little Ponies Movie and the Carebears Movie for the kids I babysit and made them watch it with me? It was the only way I could get them out from the libraries and not feel like a total geek, even though I still rent and watch Disney movies on a regular basis. Oh the days of jelly shoes and flourescent green t-shirts! Thank you for as always bringing a smile to my face!


Phuc_Buddy replies on 5/31/2006 9:52 am:
I have other ways of bringing a smile to your face!

As for watching cartoons or old Disney movies...every chance I get so don't feel embarassed one bit.
