Not yet. I know, I know.

6. When did you get your first cell phone? What was it like? (have a screen? text abitily? a brick or flip?)
1996 and it was a brick. I had to get a new purse to hold it...and the antenna stuck out of the top of the purse and it didn't do anything but call people.

7. When did you family first acquire a color TV?
My parents: I honestly don't remember, but it would have been early 80s because we had one in San Diego. I remember my brother hooking his Commodore 64 up to it and the display was in color.

8. When did you familiy acquire a second TV?
My parents: Probably 1985, when we moved to a three level townhouse and the TV was in the bottom floor and their bedroom was on the third.
Us: We always had two - when we combined households, I brought mine with me

9. Did you ever own designer jeans?
I had the look you want to know better

10. Have you ever been to a disco?
Nope, I was too young. Something I'm daily thankful for.

Yikes, this is kind of like the job thing. San Diego (2x), Newport (3x), Annapolis, Seattle, Springfield (2x) Fredericksburg, Honolulu, Chesapeake (2x), Norfolk, Great Lakes.

12. Have any of your contemporary friend died? (people more or less your age)
A few close acquaintances have died.

Easier to ask if I have any brown hair left. I'm about 50% thanks to crappy genes.

15. Did you or your family own a Betamax?
We did, I'm ashamed to say. We thought VHS would lose the battle.

I still have, and wear, a few of my college sweatshirts.

Not very often, but I have a newfound love for string beans.

Wait. There are privileges?

Most definitely.
