    So... did any of you 80's children catch SyFy Channel's 4th of July "Greatest American Hero" marathon..? I loved that show back in the day... on rewatching it, I cringed at the "state of the art" 80's special effects but was impressed by how well the banter between the lead characters held up after two decades... some good writing there..!

    Believe it or not, I'm walking on air..!

    What I find funny is that back in the late 80's when I was in grade school and junior high,we made fun of my aunt who had pictures in the 70's with bell-bottoms and ironed straight hair. This while we were wearing tight rolled jeanes and mullet hair styles ourselves saying to ourselves (how could they wear that stuff?)

    I was born in 1980 (VERY begnning--literally!) and I TOTALLY remember a lot of this stuff!!

    Am I the only 80s child who used to watch that show Kids Incorporated. It had a very PRE Saved By The Bell Mario Lopez as a dancer and a VERY young (VERY pre *cough*methandbotox*cough*) Fergie (aka: Stacy Ferguson). I was able to transfer YouTube clips onto my iPod Touch (shhhhh!!!) and I have over 100 songs on it! WOO HOO!

    Oh, and I totally wished that DJ Tanner was my big sister or that I was best friends with Punky Brewster. cheesy
