It cant be!

Watching the Adam and Joe show on the Sky thingy, and everything on there, including the show itself, is only a few years old.

Please tell me it is, otherwise I am watching a program that I watched as an adult but is almost 20 years old.

Oh and 1984 was only 5 minutes before that, because if it isnt then I am officially old and my record collection is laughable!

No. It wasn't. My baby is only 6 and not able to vote and bugger off to India without me.

My god. Yanbu. It was about 5 years ago, surely.

MammaTJ Mon 28-Jul-14 21:45:47

It was not. 1995 was not 19 years ago and my baby girl did not get married a few weeks ago either.

1996 is nothing. I have booze older than that. YANBU.

I was still in primary school in 1996 ffs. It's not that long ago, surely. sad

YANBU I was 12/13 then and I'm only 18 now so it definitely wasn't 18 years ago! It was five years ago, surely!

I have booze older than that.

I have knockers older than that! Definitely not more than 5 years ago!

YANBU I was 12/13 then and I'm only 18 now so it definitely wasn't 18 years ago

Point proved. Thank you for your impeccable maths!

That was the Spice Girls on the Brit awards. cry

Surely not 18 years?!

trikken Mon 28-Jul-14 21:53:09

Haha knockers!

jaynebxl Mon 28-Jul-14 21:54:22

I started teaching in 1990 and I'm sure that was no more than 8 years ago. Otherwise that would male me over 30, which would just be crazy.

Bogeyface Mon 28-Jul-14 21:55:03

Help me.

Peter André is on now, and he hasnt been married and doesnt have 3 kids and isnt slagging off a former Page Three girl.............ermm......

I often think this. Someone says " what were you doing 10 years ago" and am often transported back to 1996 when I first left school . This was obv only 10 years. Nothing to do with the fact it is near enough 20 years ago and heather simmer is not a cool lipstick to wear anymore let alone dewberry spray from the body shop is no longer cool to wear (if they still make it). There must be something in your brain that sort of cancels out about 10 years or something. ( my excuse anyway)

bogeyface my knockers sure aint what they were in 1996 sad



Pobblewhohasnotoes Mon 28-Jul-14 21:55:59

Now I'm crying, I left school in '96, wah!

MBT1987 Mon 28-Jul-14 21:56:00

Anyone want to feel ancient?

Bogeyface Mon 28-Jul-14 21:57:35

Now I'm crying, I left school in '96,

I got MARRIED in 96!

Next year we're as far into the future than Marty went back in the first film from 1985. & I still want a hoverboard.

Bogeyface Mon 28-Jul-14 21:58:45

Marthas neither are mine, but thats thanks to radical breast surgery which means that they will never hit me knees. Its about the only thing that hasnt gone south, used to hate them but they are my pride and joy these days grin

I really did not get married 18 years ago did I??

I must have been a child bride grin

I have magazines from 1996.

A lot of the celebs are the same as today.

What is freaky is that they don't seem to have aged.

I'm looking at you ms minogue
