                you only forgot one thing.......

                101) You have ever shouted, "heyyyyy you guys" whilst making your ear flap with one hand, and trying to disfigure your face as much as possible with the other.


                (sloth from the goonies incase you are lost by this)

                oh, thought of another......

                102) you have sang with your best friend, the rap (if you can call it a rap) they do in the film 'BIG'.
                Goes something like "shimmy shimmy coco pop" and "You read it, I said it, I stole my mothers credit"....
                I forgot the rest but I'm going to go and see if they have it at Blockbuster!

                Man, I only just signed up to this thing because of that list, you got me so excited!

                About micro machines, mine are still being used as teaching aids in my dads instructor car on a piece of lego board
                with a crossroads printed on it, how cool is that!
