Earlier, I was arguing with my bro’s gf that the 80s are going to make
a comeback. Apparently this is just because I never really left.

You Belong in 1981
    1981 
If
you scored…1950 – 1959: You’re fun loving, romantic, and more than a
little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 – 1969: You are a free
spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule – oh, and
drugs too.

1970 – 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns.
Whether you’re partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 –
1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You’re colorful
at night – and successful during the day.

1990 – 1999: With you anything
goes! You’re grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It’s all good!
