Signs You Grew Up in L.A. in the '90s

Signs You Grew Up in L.A. in the ’90s

This guy’s list of 35 Signs You Grew Up in L.A. in the ’90s totally cracked me up yesterday. Highlights:

#2 Browsed records at Tower Records
#3 Listened to KROQ (and had all the stickers on my Tercel)
#6 Ate at Hamburger Hamlet (um, massive chocolate fudge cake anyone?)
#9 You got Thrifty’s ice cream (still the only mint chip I love)
#16 You had a healthy fear of Downtown

But, I’d like to add a few of my own…

#36 You remember being sent home from school when the L.A. Riots raged on
#37 Going to Arena on 18-and-over night made you feel really grown up
#38 Cruising on Sunset in bumper-to-bumper traffic made you feel like a celebrity
#39 Having brand new CDs opened for you to preview at Virgin Megastore
#40 Crown Books, Music Plus, Sam Goody, Good Guys, Wherehouse
#41 You remember parking where the Staples Center/L.A. Live complex now sits
#42 You went to Disneyland/Magic Mountain for your senior field trip
#43 You went to Wrightwood for science camp
#44 You were always intrigued by the freeway murals on the 101
#45 You remember where you were when you heard about the start of the Gulf War, Magic Johnson and the O.J. verdict
