    2010 - 12 year old and I stayed up late after midnight to watch the Doctor Who episode "School Reunion" which had Sarah Jane Smith...

    2000 - Already answered in the other thread, but...Living in Garden Grove with the Mrs. and two sons. Laughing my ass off that the Y2K thing turned out to be bogus.

    1990 - At my friend's place (who has since passed away) recovering from the night before -- specifically an alcoholic concoction he invented called "Primordial Soup" that had me crawling from room to room on my hands and knees, kissing several of the female partygoers including several that I did not know before that night (but one I later dated).

    1980 - Living with my mother, wondering if it was possible for me to get out of high school early, even though there was no summer school to get advanced credit.

    1970 - Living with my mother and older siblings. I might have been at my father's house; my parents divorced while I was very young.

    I'm game.

    2010: watching the Blue Moon over Lake Tahoe.

    2000: Watching fireworks getting set off over the roofs of every hotel/casino on Las Vegas Blvd, while watching planes take off and land at the airport.

    1990: Watching the first music video of the '90s on MTV. It was Black Velvet, by Alannah Myles. And yes, shocker of all shockers, kiddies, MTV did at one time actually play music videos, and they weren't all rap.

    1980: Playing with my first computer, thanks to my dad. I was the only 6 y.o. on in the neighbourhood with an Apple IIe.

    1970: wasn't born.
