I am declaring Mondays to be Time Machine Open Threads. My thought is that I’ll post a little something about where I was and what I was doing in a particular year, and add some pop culture tidbits. Feel free to play along in the comments, or you know, just use the open thread however you’d like.
Note from Ophelia: The open thread is starting early tonight! Everyone in the pool!
I’m starting with 1991 because it was the year I graduated from high school and my 20-year reunion is next month. So in June 1991, I had just graduated from high school, and I was having a blast being a resident camp counselor at a Girl Scout Camp. I had The Cure in my tape deck, and drove around in a 1986 Dodge Lancer. I was dying to go to college already (whereupon I would meet Selena within about my first two hours on campus– I found her because we had the same Cure T-shirt. True Story). That summer, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves took the theaters by storm, and while I tried not to like it, it was really had to avoid. I admit, it eventually grew on me.
For more fun from 1991, including what not to wear, check out this video full of clips of the #1 hits from that year: http://youtu.be/w1MxqnUFRXU
What were you doing in 1991??
