1210 - 1219 was a wild time. Of course, that was during my "serfer phase."

The 90's, I came of age at the start of grunge. Suddenly I had a closet full of flannel, torn jeans, and a pair of Doc Martens that I wouldn't take off. Plus I cut off my mullet and grew my hair out in front till it was almost covering my eyes (the rents loved that one)

70's for me. I left school in 1970, started work for BUA, joined the RAF in '73, went to Germany, got married (for the first time) and the fashions - yes, I quite enjoyed them Big grin

I seemed to spend much of the decade in an alcoholic stupor - maybe thats why I got married?

I'm not one to get upset much - but in this case I think the phrase "F**k off and die" is perfectly appropriate here, youth! Big grin

And I object to the word "Prominent". It gives rise to many, many bad thoughts ! Big grin

I've only completed 1 full decade - the 1990s - despite being 23. I was born in 1982, so I evidently didn't get all of the 1980s.

The 1990s was a time I really enjoyed. I liked the flow and the general feel of the decade. I also felt it was a particularly progressive time in politics (at least Australian and American). Also it seems now like the calm before the storm of the war on terrorism.

Sort of how my Prime Minister feels about the 1950s I suppose I feel about the 1990s.
