the 90's

Pin It

Totally reliving the 90's this morning.  I had E turn on my soon-to-be-dead ipod, and what does it play? Ace of Base.  Yeah.

E comes in and says, 'Do you like this song?' (as if she's skeptical that this is acceptable music).

The 90's.  I graduated from high school in the 90's.  At least I'm not stuck in that decade.  I think?  I listen to current music.  You know, like Cedarmont Kids. And OK GO.  Stuff my kids like. And whatever current music Jude brings into the house.  I also listen to stuff they don't like, such as NPR.  But they can deal.

I'm rambling a bit. But anyway.  The 90's.

My eldest brother graduated in the early 90's.  He was a super cool guy in his senior photos - he was rocking the mullet better than most. He's still cool, but now he's almost 40. I don't know how cool his kids think he is, but they'll learn he's not too bad.

My middle brother also graduated in the 90's.  He did not have a mullet. He was (and perhaps still is) a computer nerd, but a nice-looking computer nerd. Also cool, but in his own ADD kind of way.

My youngest brother just barely missed out on graduating in the awesomeness that is/was the 90's.  He may have been sporting a mullet at one point during the 90s. But that's okay, because he's in the Army now, and well, we just don't question his cool factor or hair length. He might beat us up.

During the last decade of the 20th century, I moved from one state to another, changed schools a few times, graduated from high school, and completed most of my college courses.

I wasn't too freaked out by the whole "Y2K" thing, but on that change over, I wanted to be hear the guy I had a crush on, one of the most resourceful people I know.  Good thing I eventually married him.  He's pretty handy.

I drove a red Saturn SL.  Now my nephew drives that same Saturn SL, with more than 250,00 miles on it.

I thought great things would happen in my life when I was 17 or 18.  I was wrong.  Normal things happened then, and the great stuff didn't really happen for a few more years.

It's been more than 10 years since I last experienced the 90's first hand.  Ace of Base doesn't seem that old, but yeah, it is. Maybe I'll go listen to some classical music for a little perspective on time and music.
