What generation am I?

Okay, I’ll fully admit to turning 30 this year. But not until September, mind you. But this sticks me into this generational limbo-land.

Technically, I was born on the tail end of Generation X, but my early childhood was truthfully spent in the 1980’s. As a result, I am not the expert on 80’s music that, say, the Webmaster is. This is one area where he can soundly beat my butt in Trivial Pursuit. I didn’t have an older sibling bringing “new” music into the house in that era, so I was still singing along with the Carpenters when the 80’s came to a close. Although I did own two Debbie Gibson tapes.

By the time I was a teenager in the 90’s, I was pretty well only listening to musical theater or Christian pop music. So, my musical trivia is still pretty limited – but that’s okay by me. That’s why the Webmaster and I make such a good team when we play couples’ Trivial Pursuit.

Anyway, so I had no idea what a Rickroll was. But now I know, thanks to the Webmaster. I’m not sure this is anything anyone really needed to know in their lifetime, but there you go.

So, for your amusement, here is a Rickroll, courtesy of the Muppets. (The original clip is here.)

And since we’re on a Muppet theme here, this is Ane’s current favorite clip.

Have a great weekend, everyone – keep the sunscreen handy!

    Little Cousin sat with me while I watched the Muppet clips, I also played “Mahna Mahna” for her, which she loved!
