Pffft, you can go watch a movie for 3.5 USD around here if you have a membership card. 5 USD otherwise :meh:

I remember when the bus fare here was just 200 COP (0.11 USD)

Don't you hate when taking a bus costs € 2.00 (~ US$ 2.80) whether you go 500 meters or 20 kilometers...

I remember when to use a modem, you had to put the handset on top of two suction cup like things on the modem.
I remember when to make a computer go faster you could hit a "Turbo" button. But this also made the computer less stable.

Statler Brothers, Do You Remember These

Saturday morning serials chapters 1 through 15,
Fly paper, penny loafers, Lucky Strike Green.
Flat tops, sock hops, Studebaker, Pepsi Please,
Ahh, do you remember these?

Cigar Bands, on your hand, your daddy's socks rolled down.
Sticks, snow floats and aviator caps with flaps that button down.
Movie stars on Dixie Cup tops, and knickers to your knees,
Ahh, do you remember these?

The Hit Parade, grape Tru-Aid, The Sadie Hawkins Dance,
Pedal pushers, duck tail hair and peggin' your pants.
Howdie-Doodie, Tutti-Frutti, the seam up the back of her hose,
Ahh, do you remember those?

James Dean, he was keen, Sunday movies were taboo,
The Senior Prom, Judy's mom, Rock-n-Roll was new.
Cracker Jack prize, stars in your eyes, ask Daddy for the keys,
Ahh, do you remember these?

The boogey man, lemonade stands, takin' your tonsils out,
Hindenburg, -n- wait your turn, and 4 foul balls you're out.
Cigarette loads, -n- secret codes, -n- savin' lucky stars,
Can you remember back that far?

The boat neck shirts, and fender skirts and crinoline petticoats,
Mum's the word, and a dirty bird and a double root beer float.
Moon hub caps, and loud heel taps, and he's a real gone cat.
Ahh, do you remember that?

Dancin' close, little moron jokes, and cooties in her hair,
Captain Midnight, Ovaltine, and The Whip at the County Fair.
Charles Atlas Course, Roy Roger's Horse, and "only The Shadow knows"
Ahh, do you remember those?

Gable's charm, Frog in your arm, loud mufflers, pitchin' woo,
Going steady, Veronica and Betty, white bucks, and "Blue Suede Shoes"
Knock Knock jokes, and "Who's there?", Dewey, Dewey who?;
Do we, do we remember these? Yes, we do, Ahh do we do we remember these?





Scary thing is....... I do remember most of those!
Dogs have owners, Cats have staff

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

I remember this song. And being little and listening to you singing along to it, Gpa. I have an enduring fondness for the Statler Bros because of it, too.
I remember the days of writing someone a letter and putting it in the mail- with an envelope and a stamp and everything!- because the only other way to talk to them was on the phone, and that would've been long distance and cost money! ^_^

Yes, I remember that from when I was engaged to your mother. A year and a half with her in Minnesota and me in Michigan. Talk about long distance Romance.

Talk is cheap on satellite
But all I get is (static!)
Information, I'm still here
Re-dial on automatic

But I'm just talking to a satellite
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world.

All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world.

She left a number I could call
But no one's there, no one at all
There must be something going wrong
That number just rings on and on.

Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
Guess she's missing me across the miles
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world.

FFF, now I'm stuck with "Kayleigh" from who knows which artist... And that makes me want to play Singstar -_-
Don't feed me violins.
