Blast from the past

One of my oldest friends,Maggie, is in my 8th period Social studies class. Today was kind of a free day in that class so we were looking through our history book and they have therse really neat pages that have examples of newspapers for important parts of American History. On these pages they have samples of what things cost in that time period, which is where i got the fact of the day at. A cd player cost $200 in 1989. So we were talking about the really old cell phones that our parents had( my dad had one of the black chunky ones that look like a normal phone and the buttons lit up.) then we were talking about the old computers. Mom and I talked about these earlier too because we were watching Doogie Howser M.D. (the world's first blogger. I l;ove that show!! :)) Remember how you had to program the background to change color?!?!?!?!? We were talking about the old games and stuff that we played on these computers. I had this game called bookworm at my grandma's house. It had this little boy and little girl and they had to jump up and get books and follow this little bookworm. I would love to play that game again!! It was so fun! Then I would play hang man that only came in green yellow and blackpictures that were made up of big block things. I played billy the kid and xena. I loved those games!!! I'll have to ask grandma where they went.

I remember a game I played on my first computer, ski something, and me and Jess would start the skier at the top of the hill and purposefully crash it into big rocks.

Wow that was fun and educational - I decided I don't want to ski.
