You're a Child of the 70's If...

"All skaters, change directions" means something to you.

"Members Only" jackets...say no more.

A predominant color in your childhood photos is "plaid".

Chevy Chase was really funny in those vacation movies.

If female: you thought that Shawn Cassidy was "dreamy", lusted after "Ted, your ship's photographer" on the Love Boat or Chachi.

If male: your first love was Marsha Brady, Jeannine, Samantha from Bewitched, Josie or any one of the Pussycat.

In your sophomore class picture, you're wearing a shirt with the collar "up".

It was a major accomplishment to get to the "Chase" scene in Ms. Pacman.

You had rotary phones.

You can remember the words to the theme song of "The Greatest American Hero." ("BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I'M WALKIN' ON AIR... I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD FEEL SO FREE-EE-EE...")

This rings a bell: "My name is Charlie, and they work for me."!

You can recite the Preamble to the Constitution, but only to the tune of Schoolhouse Rock.

You ever had a Dorothy Hamill haircut or used Short and Sassy shampoo.

You ever owned a Donnie and Marie or Sonny and Cher poster.

You found nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.

You know, by heart, the words to Weird Al Yankovic's songs.

You owned a Jordache anything, or you remember when Jordache jeans were cool.

You recall when Love's Baby Soft was in every girl's Christmas stocking.

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

You remember having a rotary phone.

You remember having to get off the couch to change the TV channel.

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

You remember wanting to stay up to see Mr. Bill on Saturday Night Live.

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

You remember when there was only "G", "PG", and "R".

You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch and your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD!

You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van and remember riding in the back of the station wagon trying to get passing trucks to honk at you.

You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk.

Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape.

Your jaw would ache by the time you finished one of those brick-sized packages of Bazooka!

Your parents paid $2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table.

You've ever owned a pair of rainbow suspenders like the ones Mork used to wear.
