Things I would tell myself in... 1989.




1989


I ended up having a lot of fun with "Things I would tell myself in 1994", so I thought I'd keep it rolling. Keeping with our species' proclivity for all things base-ten, I'm honouring the David Letterman format.


Top Ten Things I would tell myself in 1989*


  1. That whole "Berlin Wall" thing? Important. Remembering where you were when Batman opened?... Not so much.
  2. If you pay the oil bill on time, they won't cut off your heat. I checked.
  3. Take advantage of your university experince by chatting up your profs once in a while. It puts you in the good books, and you may learn something before it's done. Hey! Hey! Hey!
  4. Put. The beer. Down.
  5. The House of Lords called. They no longer want credit for your bouffant.
  6. Call your mother.
  7. News flash. That weird artist you're trying to date is just as psycho as she lets on.
  8. Seriously, lose the cowboy boots.
  9. Good for you... grocery shopping at Kensington Market. Finally, a habit worth bragging about.
  10. Aerosmith is peaking now. Savour the moment.
Coming soon? Yep. 1984, baby.




* Other than... never, ever do that stupid John Cusack thing. If your romantic gesture of last resort involves "serenading" a girl with a Radio Shack boom-box while dressed like a homeless pedophile, you have truly scraped the bottom of the desperation barrel.
