Those who were children in the 1980s, however, all think of the same thing: the cartoons. The best thing about that decade was, as anyone in the world will tell you, the cartoons.
|This entry was originally about just my birth year, but I can't talk about|
the 80s without talking about the cartoons. Yes, I watched all of these.
There was one other awesome thing to come out of the 1980s though: me! In 1983, to be more specific. Yes, 1983, my birth year, what I was originally talking about. Clearly this was the best year of the entire decade. I mean, look at that face. Look at it. You can see why I was distressed to discover that my own child would be so hideous.
While I admit I don't remember much (okay, anything) from that time, I do know some other awesome things happened that year. And so I bring you...
The Top 5 Moments of 1983
(other than my glorious birth)
1. Nintendo released the very first Mario games. While Mario appeared in 1981's Donkey Kong and 1982's Donkey Kong Jr., he didn't start getting his own games until 1983.
And people wonder where my Nintedo fangirlery stems from. Mario and I were made for each other. Maybe literally--I would have to ask my mother about that.
2. This happened. I mean Return of the Jedi happened. I saw it in theater! I was two months old and slept through it, but, hey, I still feel cooler having seen four out of the six movies in theater.
3. Bill Gates was hot.
And, you know what? He's still hot. Don't judge me. I mean, look at that face! And he knows how to play coy. I may or may not have this picture framed on my wall somewhere...
It's not the money. Really.
4. Kīlauea, on the Big Island of Hawaii, started erupting. And it still is.
That's right, 1983 rocked so hard that it irrevocably ruptured the surface of the earth.
5. Tokyo Disneyland opened. What more is there to say? More Disneyland means more awesome.
I will go to there someday.
And, yes, that is Kim Jun Il. (source)
I've received my very first blog award! Thanks, Kate! Simply Kate is one of my favorite blogs because it's, duh, simple. She likes Zelda and Glee and uses lots of pictures. And she likes me too, so obviously that makes me like her more. We all have our egos.
With this award comes the directive to use five adjectives to describe this blog. Let's see... 1. geeky, 2. narcissistic, 3. whiny, 4. squee-ish, 5. crafty
And soon to be more Disney-whorish. I'm all about making up adjectives. And riding on It's a Small World.
