For me too. It's quite a resource.

I'm not a teenager!  Cheesy I just like to read...hence, the use of the word poser (alt. poseur). Tongue

I know. We're the same age, but Peter's a little farther removed than we are from teenager-speak.

Yup, considering that most of today's teenagers were born after I graduated from high school.

Teenagers have a way of making anyone feel old. Yesterday in my group communication class we were playing Taboo--I love games that restrict methods of communication; they force the students to exercise forms of communication they rarely use--and one of the words was "Linda Tripp." None of the students had any idea who she was. I thought about it for a second, and I realized that went Pres. Clinton was impeached, they were all between four and six years old. *sigh*

Yup.  They say you're getting old when what we regarded as breaking news is now taught in our history books.

Gosh, hard to believe, but while I was watching the Dem's convention last week I realized between Clinton's 2 terms & Bush's 2 terms...that's 16 years! Someone who born the day Clinton took his first oath of office would be driving now!

Pres. Clinton was never impeached.
Actually yes, he was impeached by the House of Representatives but acquitted by the Senate.

My mistake, I was thinking of being convicted, impeachment indictaes being accused.

I usually associate a skateboard, Vans tennis shoes and a sloppy hair cut with a poser.  I also think of the movie Gleaming the Cube with Christian Slater and Steven Bauer (Al Pacino's #2 man on Scarface).

I have this futile hope that Caitlin won't be into Hannah Montana and such, but I imagine she'll be into something more silly.  Dave Barry once wrote a column on a band called The Cheetah Girls whom his daughter Sophie just loved and for the longest time I thought it was something he made up.  Then I saw a Nintendo DS game based on whatever abysmal musical talents they might have.  Urk.

You do realize she's just Billy Ray Cyrus' way of getting attention, now that no one listens to him.

It's funny how you define ABBA. I am 50 y.o. now, and I remember myself very well growing up in the former USSR of the early- and mid-1970's. To me and many of my friends, actually, "ABBA" was a betrayal of things that we held dear: smashing hard rock of bands like "Deep Purple," "Uriah Heep," and the like. (I know, you probably never even heard about them.) We used to listen to tapes of Deep Purple and Uriah Heep smuggled from God knows where, and to us, that was the ultimate revolution... ABBA was "square," pretentious, smelling of expensive perfume store, dumb, completely un-"revolutionary" - even though "hip" and of course Western.

Funny you should mention Deep Purple: I found the strangest cover of "Smoke on the Water" the other day. When I get home I'll post a link.

And here it is.

Aw, come on Heorhij!  Of course I know Deep Purple and Uriah Heep!  Wink  You and the rest of the world were completely right about ABBA.  They were pretentious, cheap, empty, and everything that was wrong with disco all rolled into one band.  But the songs are fun, I admit.
