.a life in lists::childhood.

I realize that it's been a little while since my last post about "a life in lists."  So, today, I thought it would be fun to put up another.  Today, we shed some light onto our childhood memories.

  • "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" by Roald Dahl.
  • Punky Brewster.
  • An Ewok Adventure.  
  • Sanrio merchandise, like "Hello Kitty."
  • Ricky Martin when he was in the group "Menudo."
  • Watching "Garfield" and the "Smurfs" during Saturday morning cartoons.
  • Peeps, BubbleYum, Tootsie Pops, and Big Hunk candy.  
  • Dr. Pepper and A&W Root Beer.
  • The color pink (of course).
  • Tear for Fears and Duran Duran.
  • Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite.
