I can't watch the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and not rap along to the theme song lol.

I used to die every time I played Oregon Trail, but oh was it worth it :)

Ashley, this is great! Thanks for the ride through the 90's!

OREGON TRAIL!! And I quite often wore socks over leggings scrunched down. This is a *great* list! (not...) hee, hee

Oh man! Remember when Prince of Persia was a computer game? I could never leap well, I'd always fall into the spikes. Along with Doug, I used to watch Rugrats and Ren and Stimpy. Snick...I missed Snick with that show Roundhouse. Ewww...and I remember the shirt and leggings styles back then. Neon bongo shorts. Baby dolls and chokers. Daisies everywhere on outfits. Combat boots with dresses (oh I did that, lol). Oh we used to get so crazy with Miss Mary Mack, ha ha! And there were all those clapping games you'd do with a friend. Thumb wars, slaps, punch buggie.<br />
