You are between the generations of Generation X and Baby Boomer (a 'Tweener) if:

You remember when Jordache jeans were cool.

In your fifth grade class picture you were wearing an Izod shirt with the collar up.

You know by heart the words to any Weird Al Yankovic song.

The Brady Bunch movie brought back cool memories.

You ever rang someone's doorbell and yelled "Landshark!".

Three words: Atari, IntelliVision and Coleco, sound familiar.

You remember the days when "safe sex" meant that your parents were gone for the weekend.

You remember Friday Night Videos before the days of MTV.

The predominant color in your childhood photos is plaid.

While in high school, you and your friends discussed elaborate plans to get together again
at the end of the century and play Prince's "1999" until you passed out partying.

You remember when music that was labeled alternative, really was.

You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the minivan.

You rode in the back of the station wagon and you faced the cars behind you.

You've ever conversationally used the phrase, "Jane, you ignorant slut!"

You watched HR Pufenstuff as a child, but now that you're older, you really understand that it
would have been much better had you known about drugs at the time.

You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phases: When I was
younger... When I was your age... You know, back when....

Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you actually learned the English language.

You're starting to view getting carded to buy alcohol as a GOOD thing.

You ever dressed to emulate a person you saw in either a Duran Duran, Madonna or Cyndi Lauper
video.

The first time you ever kissed someone at a dance came during "Crazy for You," by Madonna.

You remember with pain the sad day when the Green Machine hit the streets and made your old
Big Wheel quite obsolete.

The phrase "Where's the beef," still doubles you over with laughter.

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

Girls thought Sean Cassidy was dreamy, and lusted after Ted the photographer on The Love Boat.

You freaked out when you found that you now fall into the middle-age category on most
questionnaires.

Your hair at some point in time in the 80's became something which can only be described by the
phrase, "I was experimenting".

This timeline appropriately describes actual events in your life:
Star Wars opens, you are still in single digit ages, and you think the creatures are WAY cool.
Empire Strikes Back opens, you are now in early double digit ages, and you are convinced
that the special effects are much better, the characters are cool, and you want
one of every collectible out there.
Return of the Jedi hits the theaters, you are now a teenager and you cannot get your eyes
off Princess Leia's breasts or Han Solo's butt.

You've ever shopped at a Banana Republic or Benetton, but not in the last five years, okay?

You're starting to believe now that maybe having the kids go to school year round wouldn't be
such a bad idea after all.

You're doing absolutely nothing pertaining to your major.

You ever wanted to be gagged with a spoon.

U2 is too popular and mainstream for you now.

You ever used the phrase "Kiss mah grits!" in conversation.

You remember trying to guess the episode of the Brady Bunch from the first scene.

You spent endless nights dreaming about being the Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman or the Six
Million Dollar Man.

You had ringside seats for Luke and Laura's wedding on General Hospital.

You remember, "Hey, let's be careful out there."

Your parents wanted you to attend medical school, but you decided it was pointless since
Quincy got all the babes anyway.

You know who shot JR.

This rings a bell: "...and my name is Charlie. They work for me."

You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on after all.

You know all the words to the double album set of Grease.

You ever had a Dorothy Hammill haircut.

You sat with your friends on a Friday night and dialed "867-5309" to see if Jenny would answer.

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

You owned a pair of Rainbow suspenders just like Mork used to wear.

You bought a pair of Vans and wanted to order a pizza in history class so you could be just
like Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

You owned a preppy handbook.

You were too young to go see the Blue Lagoon so you just had to settle for second hand reports.

You remember when there was only PG and R none of this PG-13 crap.

You learned to swim about the same time Jaws came out and still carry the emotional scars
to this day.

You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch.

You actually believed everything Leonard Nimoy told you on "In Search Of..."

Your jaw would ache by the time you finished those brick sized packages of Bazooka gum.

Bo and Luke Duke.

VCRs cost $2,000.

There was nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.

Rotary dial telephones.

You actually believed that Mikey, famed for his Life cereal commercials, died after eating
a packet of pop rocks and drinking a Coke.

The theme song to Greatest American Hero still comes back to you on.

Hey, Al can be cool!

"Three words: Atari, IntelliVision and Coleco, sound familiar."

Yeah, from History class:)

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

Plaid isn't a color.

"You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phases: When I was

Yup, I've said "when I was you age..." and it scared me.

"Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you actually learned the English language."

Yup

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

Atari was pretty cool, for the time IMO. Thre was this one open wheel race car game I used to love to play. Never used the Intellivision, never even heard of Coleco.

"You know by heart the words to any Weird Al Yankovic song."

Weird AL is 'da best
hmmhmmhmm...In an Amish paradise...hmmhmmhmm :D

"VCRs cost $2,000"

And now you can get an SVHS VCR for ~$100, $2000 gets you started on a half way decent HT

"You actually believed that Mikey, famed for his Life cereal commercials, died after eating a packet of pop rocks and drinking a Coke. "

:lol: Are you serious???
