Just a Scary Random Thought

Thursday, November 12, 2009
I can remembering hearing Prince's "1999" in the mid-80s and thinking that the year seemed SO far away. Now it's the year - gasp - 2009. A full decade AFTER 1999. Where DOES the time go?

As if my mind couldn't be boggled enough, when 2010 arrives, it will mean that three decades have passed since the 80s began. What? Remember how we all thought that era was so futuristic, with its fashion, music, and technology (and by technology, I mean VHS VCRs and Sony Walkmans.)

Probably best not to mull over this too much. Back to our regularly scheduled programming...


  1. Time does seem to be going by faster and faster, kind of a scary thought it a way. I wonder if people in the first half of the 20th century or even before that felt that time went by just as fast?

  2. I can't believe I am 36. 2011 will be my 20th HS reunion. UGH!!!!!!!

  3. I still remember listening to the ABBA song "Happy New Year" which contains the lines:

    Who can say what we'll find,
    What lies waiting down the line,
    In the end of nineteen eighty nine

    And I remember thinking "wow, 1989, that's a long way off..."


  4. you're so right. its bizarre. i'm only 21 and its crazy to me to think of my parents' ginormous cellularone phones and now i have my teeny tiny iphone with the touch screen. or how the stuff i wore in elementary school is now coming back with a vengeance?

  5. I remember graduating from High School in 1997! Funnily enough it doesn't feel that long ago!
