Ok, are you sick of all these surveys that are obviously made by teenagers, with questions like “Have you ever stayed out all night?” Who cares? Well, I guess when you’re 14 that’s a big deal. So here is a survey for adults cause there are some of us out there you know.

For the adults:

Check all that pertain! (I’m putting my own filler in parens after)

[X] I have a job. (I’ve had a job with a paycheck since I was 16, babysitting regularly and whatnot since I was 12.)

[ ] I have a car payment.

[X] I have a house payment/rent to pay. (Just got a Mortgage! Later, Rent!)

[] I’ve made a house or car payment late.

[ ] I’ve had a car reposessed.

[X] I know my credit score. (I do, and it’s *very* interesting how malleable those things are.)

[ ] I have kid(s). (Well, Newt, but I assume they mean human children.)

[ ] I have kids by more than one person.

[ ] I pay child support.

[ ] I’m married.

[ ] I’ve been divorced.

[X] I’m 30 or older and haven’t been married.

[X] I have toys from my childhood that are older than half of myspace/livejournal. (See Cookie Monster Circa 1974)

[x] I remember when David Lee Roth left Van Halen. (I remembe rnot caring, then, too.)

[x] I saw “E.T.” at the cinema. (Yup! Back wehn the G-men had guns, not walkie-talkies!)

[x] Fraggle Rock. (Not as huge a fan as some, but I did like the theme.)

[x] “Where’s the Beef?” (I got really sick of this. And this century’s equal, “Yeah, baby, Yeah. Groovy, baby.”

[x] The two Coreys. (Good in Lost boys… boring in everytihng else.)

[x] Garbage Pail Kids. (Awesome fun, grossness, but I liked wacky packages better)

[X] I’ve found grey/white hairs. (Dern tootin’! Newt has White whiskers, too, and he’s still a baby!)

[ ] I have aches and/or pains for no apparent reason. (Actually, I can gess the reasons for mine.)

[x] I’ve uttered the phrase “Kids these days…” (Especially sass-mouths.)

[x] I’ve uttered the phrase “When *I* was a kid…” (Especially regarding sass-mouths)

[X] I think current teen fashion is laughable, but I own something from the 80’s or early 90’s thats equally lame. (*all fashion is laughable!*)

[X] I know off the top of my head who Crockett and Tubbs are. (awesome theme music, too.)

[x] “Capital Gains tax”, “401k”, and “Homestead exemption” all mean something to me. (I want #2, and am grateful for #3)

[x] I know who killed Laura Palmer. (Blah. Twin peaks let me down. Cool weirdness that was stretched too thin… I fear for LOST)

[x] I remember when VCRs were a “new gadget”. (And cassettes, and CDs!)

[x] I remember Atari. (Long live the New Flesh!)

[x] I remember when the only anime show you could watch was Robotech. (And we were better for it.)
