Ok so, funny 90s story time. While I’m on the subject.
In 1996 I was like 14, and Clinton was running for reelection. He made a campaign stop in Cleveland (where I was living at the time) and he and Al Gore both spoke at a rally my dad took me to.
Now, 1996…. I was in full-on weird raver grungy phase… which anyone who was a teenager in the 90s probably remembers. So I went to this rally wearing torn-up brown corduroys (the bottoms of which were held together with safety pins…. 90S FASHION EVERYONE) and Docs and this awful polyester shirt that had NEON green, blue, and orange stripes. Also in effect was my dirty, streaky hair, smudged black eyeliner, and lots of awful silver and plastic jewelry.
So the next day one of my friends was like, “I was home sick yesterday, and I saw you on CSPAN.”
APPARENTLY while they were playing the National Anthem, and everyone else was standing respectfully, I was standing all hunched over, with my head lolling back and my eyes pretty much permanently rolled. My 15 seconds of fame was me being the absolute worst-case scenario of a 90s teenager. Yep.
And that’s my awesome 90s story, the end.
After (almost) one year here on You Know You’re An ELF When… and 219 posts later, it is time to say goodbye……….
Don’t worry fellow ELFs the site will still be up and running. I’m not going anywhere. I will just be on hiatus for about 3 months in 2 weeks. In fact I leave the day before the blogs 1 year anniversary. I shall be travelling to the other side of the world. Instead, I admin M, will be leaving you guys in the trusty hands of admin K who has been around for a while now. I will try to pop in from time to time see how everything is going and perhaps update you guys on what’s happening on my end.
