You may be a Generation X'er if...

into a pouch.

You remember when Jordache jeans were cool.

In your fifth grade class picture, you're wearing an Izod shirt with
the collar up

You know, by heart, the words to any "Weird" Al Yankovic song

The Brady Bunch movie brought back cool memories

You ever rang someone's doorbell and said "Landshark".

Three words "Atari"  "IntelliVision" and "Coleco".   Sound familiar?

the weekend"

You remember "Friday Night Videos" before the days of MTV

While in high school, you and all your friends discussed elaborate
plans to get together again at the end of the century and play "1999"
by Prince over and over again

You remember when music that was labeled "alternative" really was

You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van. You rode
in the back of the station wagon and you faced the cars behind you.

You've ever conversationally used the phrase "Jane, you ignorant slut."

You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following
phases

English language

You're starting to view getting carded to buy alcohol as a GOOD
thing,

 You ever dressed to emulate a person you saw in either a Duran Duran,
 Madonna,or Cyndi Lauper video

The first time you ever kissed someone at a dance came during "Crazy
for You" by Madonna

You remember with pain the sad day when the Green Machine hit the
streets and made your old Big Wheel quite obsolete.

The phrase "Where's the beef?" still doubles you over with
laughter.

Honestly remember when film critics raved that no movie could ever
possibly get better special effects than those in the movie TRON.

(girls) you thought Sean Cassidy was "dreamy", lusted after "Ted, your
ship's photographer" on the Love Boat

You freaked out when you found that you now fall into the "26 - 50"
age category on most questionnaires

Your hair, at some point in time in the 80's, became something which
can only be described by the phrase "I was experimenting"

You've ever shopped at a Banana Republic or Benetton, but not in the
last five years, okay?

You're starting to believe (now that it wouldn't affect YOU) that
maybe having the kids go to school year-round wouldn't be such a bad
idea after all

You ever wanted to be gagged with a spoon

U2 is too "popular" and "mainstream" for you now

Wonder Woman or the Six Million Dollar Man

You had ringside seats for Luke and Laura's wedding (on General
Hospital)

You remember "Hey, let's be careful out there"

You're parents wanted you to attend medical school, but you decided it
was pointless since Quincy got all the babes, anyway.

You know who shot J.R.

You ever wanted to learn to play "Stairway to Heaven" on the guitar.

You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on, after all, look at
Tab.

You know all the words to the double album set of Grease.

You ever had a Dorothy Hammill haircut

You sat with your friends on a Friday night and dialed "8-6-7-5-3-0-9"
to see if Jenny would answer.

"All-skate, change directions" means something to you.

You owned a pair of Rainbow suspenders just like Mork used to wear.

You bought a pair of Vanns and wanted to order a pizza in history class
so you could be just like Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times as Ridgemont High.

You owned a preppy handbook.

You were too young to go see the Blue Lagoon so you just had to settle
for second hand reports.

You remember when there was only "G, PG and R", none of this PG-13
crap.

You learned to swim about the same time Jaws came out and still carry
the emotional scars to this day.

Wonder twin powers, activate!  Form of a an iceberg, shape of a hammer

Of..."

Your jaw would ache by the time you finished those "brick-sized"

occasion
