I remember the lamp lighter lighting the street lamp outside our house.

Before that there were no street lights and the black sky growled and the earth shook and the flames started and we had the biggest adventure playground you ever did see.

I remember waking up one morning when I was probably about four and having no memory at all. I was totally fine with this, though, as I didn't even remember that I was supposed to have a memory, or that I had even existed before that day. I had the vague feeling that I was forgetting something all morning, but I didn't pay much attention to it as I didn't know there were things to forget. I didn't remember my name, or even that I had a name, until that afternoon while playing on the swings. I remember laying on my stomach on the swing and drawing in the sand, trying to work out what it was that was bugging me so badly. It got worse and worse; I felt like my mind was beating against a steel cage trying to remember what it was that I had forgotten. Then suddenly my mother called my name and a sense of identity washed over me as I remembered that I had a name, and that it was Christie. Then I went back to playing in the sand. I didn't even think that there might be other memories missing, too.

I remember sitting in the back seat of my mother's station wagon in my grandparents' driveway a few months later as another car pulled in. I remember my mom's face being panicked, and her getting out of the car and running to my grandparents' door and ringing the bell. I remember my mom and grandparents going up to the other car and shouting at the man who had gotten out. Then I remember the man coming up to my car and opening the door. I remember him saying that he was my dad and asking if I remembered him. I, of course, said yes. I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I was always a polite child. But I didn't remember anything past a few months earlier when I had woken up as a completely blank slate.

I remember lying on my mother's bed in our apartment and talking to myself. Except that I wasn't talking to myself, I was talking to my friends who all lived inside me. There were seven of them. They talked to me, too, and I had to be quiet when they talked because they couldn't talk when I did. Only one of us could talk at a time. I remember feeling sad as they all slipped away through the years, disappearing into the mists of my mind. I remember when I was nine and the last left. I was so alone. She'd been there for as long as I could remember and then she was gone.

I remember later, in middle school, reading a story about a lady whose childhood had been so bad that she repressed her memories. But repressing the memories didn't help her multiple personality disorder, and she still blacked out at times and did things she didn't remember doing. By this time I had managed to recover a good few memories of when my father had beaten me and my mother. Putting two and two together wasn't all that hard.

I can still feel that steel cage that hides a lot of the bad memories from when I was a child. It's still there, my mind and memories have just grown around it. Sometimes I wonder what's in there. I wonder if that's where Demetria and the other six went when I grew capable enough to function without them, or if they just sublimated completely back into my personality.

Above all this, the memory that stands out the most is the cool, still blackness that came after my memories were gone. Ignorance isn't bliss because you don't have any points of refrence to differentiate between happiness and sadness, good and bad. Ignorance is just peace; blank and quiet.

I remember the first fight I got into. I was in the first grade. These older girls were throwing sand in my brother's face. I wasn't digging that. I yelled at them. One came at me and I spin kicked her in the face. I busted her lip open. She deserved it as far as I'm concerned. No one does that to my brother.

The next fight I got into was four years later. The kid's annoying laugh was the straw for me on a really bad day. When we were sent out into the hall, my brother walked by while running and errand for his teacher. He had a look of "Oh, good God, what the Hell happened?"

I remember 1994.

I remember when Curt Cobain died and not crying until ten years later.

I remember when Beck's "Loser" came out. It was one of my favorite songs and still is.

I remember Green Day inspiring me to become a musician.

I remember the first tape I bought: Green Jelly's 333. I sang to the songs therein at the top of my lungs and loved it. Imagine an elementary school kid shouting along to, "I'm out of my mind. No time to waste. It helps me unwind. I love the chase. This wasting, dude, is nothing but rude. There's no stoppin' all this droppin'." I think my parents would have been less upset about it if they knew is was about a Spider-Man villain.

I remember before the Marvel universe went to Hell, like when they did horror like Morbius and Ghost Rider and Dr. Strange and Werewolf by Night. I also remember when Sleepwalker was a prevolent character and when Generation X was still around and before Spider-Man sucked.

I remember when I thought the idea of being able to see was completely mind boggling and I just couldn't understand it.
I remember when I first discovered I could move my eyes. I was four I think and I never realised I could do it before. I probably did it subconciously though. I started my blinking and openining my eyes in a different position. I practised this until I moved them with my eyes open. And then when I ran to tell my parents they told me not to be so silly.

I remember the first time I used a computer and being amazed at how cool Windows 3.1 was.

I remember when I thought 1 was a lot of money.

I remeber the first time I went on a website that was hosted by British people and seeing words like "colour", "armour", "favourite", etc. and thinking that for adults, these people had really bad spelling. I also misspelled a spelling word in first grade because of it!

Yeah, dude. Same here. I can actually recall how I ended up getting addicted when I was in seventh grade.

I remember when I didn't say "dude" as much. I also remember when I had a vocabulary similar to that of my peers, particularly in the slang department.

I remember when I hated the Rebel flag.

I remember biking to the video store and the comic book store every Wednesday. It was a pretty lengthy ride. I don't know how I stayed fat. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I'd hit the deli along the way every once-in-a-while.

I remember learning to use the mitre saw and table saw and how apalled I was to find out that it was illegal for a thirteen-year-old to use them.

I remember my first full-time job. I did tile at fifteen. I also remember my brother's first full-time job. He did tile at thirteen. We made damn good money.

I remember before my litle sister could tell her birlth story better than I do. Her version is cuter, too. It goes something like this: "Jamie had a dream where he saw me and Mommy in the hospital when I was born and God told him that my name was Gabrielle in honor of the angel Gabriel. And He said I was gonna have red hair and blue eyes. And Mommy didn't believe Jamie, but when I was born, I had red hair and blue eyes just like Jamie told her. Hee hee. Jamie met me before Mommy did."

I remember when she referred to me as James and how weird it sounded.

I also remember the first time when someone asked where she got her red hair and she responded, "God gave it to me."

I remember when my mom would sing to me when I was upset or sleepy.

I remember how weird it felt when I sang the same songs to my little sister when she was upset or tired and our mom wasn't around.

I remember putting my sister to bed when she was a baby.

I remember both times I ever saw my father cry.

I remember before my room and livingroom had holes in the walls.

I remember how I became a clown.

I remember the first bone I broke, laying there on the ground crying, and my uncle running outside from the house and calling my mom.

I remember my first skateboard.

I remember going to the comic book section of the bookstore every Saturday to play Yu-Gi-Oh. I remember getting kicked out of the bookstore for stealing stupid stuff. (Well, now I realize it was stupid stuff, it was cool then.)

I remember being obsessed with Star Wars.

I remember free comic book day.

I remember not being able to put down the Cirque Du Freak books until I was done with all of them.

I remember swinging over a 5m high bar on one leg in primary school 50 times in a row.

I remember the first time I used a purple font, messaging someone to ask if they minded if I used the same font colour as them.

I remember reading Wyrd Sisters for the first time and loving it, thereby starting a lifelong obsession.

I remember thinking Mata was a girl for ages when I only watched his animations, because my friend mistyped something in msn (Sorry tongue.gif)

  • the first time I did drink alcohol, very slowly because I was scared of getting drunk and embarassing myself

I remember fearing Y2K.

It's weird to think that that was six years ago.

I remember dancing in front of my bedroom mirror to Brittney Spears and The Backstreet Boys.

I remember starting fifth grade, and thinking about how I'd never make it to highschool and be like 'the big kids'.

I remember realising that I would be starting highschool next year and being completly suprised that it had come so fast.

That is strange. I remember my friends parents buying all this pointless software for their computer because they were scared it was going to explode or something.

I remember going to the millenium dome. I got to go twice because we complained about all the queues preventing us from doing anything the first time. I remember there was some thing where you could record your opinions on things and listen to what some random person had recorded before. (I think that was there anyway) That was quite cool I suppose. It seems like the kinda thing you'd find on we make money not art actually..

I remember the first time they gave out free book vouchers in school (or the first time I got anything anyway) - world book day or something.. shame you couldn't buy anything much for 1 though.

I remember when everyone loved power rangers and wondering what all the fuss was about - there wasn't even any dinosaurs!

I remember having worked as a jobbing tech for some time by the dreaded y2k and knowing that all the fear over it was created by the mass media to gain market share based on a few simple annoyances.

I also remember getting free milk at school on proper 1/4 size glass milk bottles.

I remember when computers would be connected with acoustic coupler modems.

I remember tape loading.

I remember breakfast TV starting.

I remember when we didn't have the oh-so-cheap 'reality' tv shoved down out throats constantly and people actually had to try to write a decent script.

I remember my school buying their first computer. It was a BBC Micro and it was very exciting.

I remember when electronics in a toy was a ridiculous extravagance.

I remember when a film would come out without the toys having been pre-sold.

I remember when children could be bothered to scamper and play in mud. They were thinner, didn't have asthma, and could eat most things without dying. There were fewer anti-bacterial cleansers in those days and we got a chance to develop an immune system.

Those dog roses by my house are evil. Pretty, but evil. As places to lurk when youngsters go we had a pretty good area. Lots of interesting and largely abandoned overgrown places. If one heals better than people are supposed to finger scars eventually vanish and become good past stories. It's actually getting hard to spot where I mostly cut off one of my knuckles, and even the (originally) 2 inch evil scar on the back of my right hand I got when I took a razor blade (those things freak me out) away from an entheusiast is shrinking. Yay for having a peculiar body! The only bit of damage I've taken that really persists is a spot of rust that got stuck under my skin like a tattoo when scaling a barbed wire covered door in abandoned WWII tunnels.

I remember when I wasn't so bad at keeping in touch with good friends.

I remember when my brother sang for Social Failure. He now plays drums and sings for Cry of Crete.

I remember when I was sixteen and thought I knew what I was doing when I screamed. I later thought I threw my voice out for good and would never scream.

I remember when I started screaming again.

I remember my first kiss. It was by a creek near my house on our second date.

I remember almost kissing a girl on a dare when I was in the second grade. This was back when girls were icky.

I remember when I thought homosexuality was wrong and before I knew what bisexuality was.

I remember feeling extremely guilty when I got a letter sent home for my "misbehavior."

I remember when I thought the Bible and Christianity were silly.

I remember when Orgy came out and thinking it was weird that men wore makeup.

I remember going from non-racist to racist to non-racist (I realized that stupidity is equal-opportunity).

I remember thinking Star Trek was easier to follow than Star Wars.

I remember sitting outside my grandma's house with my cousins and sister in a big puddle of mud. We had tin pie pans and ended up trying to sell our mud pies to our relatives.

I remember selling one of the mud pies to an uncle for a dollar, and then being confused about how I was going to split it up between all of us.

I also remember a brightly colored plastic playhouse that I had when I was three. It was nearly impossible to get me out of there.

I remember going to Courpus Christi and watching the mussels come up after a wave. It was very cool looking. They were all sorts of different colors & I would try to sort them by color, only to be dissapointed when they dug back into the sand. laugh.gif

Well, not to get too off-topic, but when I was younger, I was uber PC and what-not primarily because it was a cover for my racist feelings, which I knew were wrong*. I slowly became aware of those feelings when confronted with reverse discrimination here in a town that is primarily black and Hispanic and for a short time embraced them when I bought drugs from a guy who was in the Klan (though bear in mind, I wasn't _nearly_ as bad as he was). Once I stopped hanging out with him, those feelings waned as I realize that it wasn't race; it was stupidity. Some just like to use their race as an excuse to be stupid, including believing one deserves special consideration or is somehow by default not a piece of crap like the rest of us (this was about the time you and I "met," Cand). Anyhow, once I started going to university and started hanging out with a lot of Asians and blacks. It wasn't that I was racist. It's that we were all racist, but had fun getting it off our chests. It helped out a lot. Not that it means anything to y'all, but one of my best friends is black* and completely understands where I'm coming from on all aforementioned points. He, like me, is cynical and believes that all people are crap, regardless of race and in a weird way, that gives us a kind of brotherhood, but that's another rant. If you want to discuss this further, IM or PM me or let's start another topic.

*To this day, I have a firm belief that most of the people who are so into political correctness or "fairness" or all kinds of affirmative actions (not just like AA, if that makes sense) or any of that crap are more racist, sexist, etc. than I could ever hope to be.

*It annoys me when people say that because it's usually a cheap way to try to convince others that one is not a racist, which may or may not be true.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyhow, I remember when my brother and I played with our action figures for hours at a time and when going to Toys 'R' Us was a spiritual experience.

I remember buying a Grim Reaper troll doll. I still have it on my shelf. I also remember Battle Trolls and Spawn and how badass they were.

I remember when my brother, our friends and I would sneak into rated-R movies. We had a whole plan, too. We'd figure out what PG or PG-13 movie (called the "safe" movie) was coinciding with the rated-R movie we wanted to see and tell our parental figures that was the movie we were seeing. When we'd get there, we'd try to buy the ticket out right (which worked only once). If that didn't work, we'd buy tickets to the safe movie and sneak into the rated-R movie. If for some reason we couldn't get into the rated-R movie, we hoped to God the safe movie was entertaining. Pre-teen/teenaged James Bonds, we were. God, I miss those days.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs .

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back.

when it was all about N64.



WHEN MAKING OUT WAS HAVING SEX

WHEN YOU TRADED POKEMON CARDS FOR A LIVING

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!!

I remember every one of those things on that list but I was more a child of the 80s and teenager of the 90s. I swear some of those things are 80s things, still funny though.

Also, I am cool.

I remember, as a child, watching the "Frugal Gourmet".

Maybe it was the chef's charisma, maybe it was the delicious-looking food. I was friggin' mesmerized, always thinking "wouldn't it be cool if I could make that one day?"
