Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Since it’s my birthday, I thought I would deviate from today’s Top Ten Topic and make up one of my own. Because not only is IT MY BIRTHDAY (in case you missed that), it’s also my 30th BIRTHDAY! I’ve been looking forward to it for months now and am so super excited to say see ya, siyonarah, hit the road to my 20s.
Today’s Top Ten are the Ten most awesome thing that happened in 1983:
Return of the Jedi premiers – I’d say this is my favorite of the Star Wars movies, mostly because Han and Lea get together and Luke is extra hot in the black. Yeah, I’m kinda shallow like that.
Beat It by Michael Jackson was a hit – My aunt, who isn’t THAT much older than me, had this song on a 45 (yeah, I know what that is!) and my cousin and I would listen to it over and over. I always thought they said “Eat It!”
Sally Ride became the first woman in Space – Girl power! IN SPAAACCEEE!
Nintendo Entertainment System debuts in Japan – Nintendo changed my life, man. Granted, NES didn’t hit the states for a couple years, and it wasn’t until a couple years later that we got one, but still! Many a childhood memory features playing Super Mario Bros!
MY LITTLE PONY – These were my favorite toy ever. Except for Care Bears. And Strawberry Shortcake. MLP was my favorite of 1983 though! (True story: my first birthday party was a Care Bears party! My 5th birthday party was a My Little Pony party!)
Mickey’s Christmas Carol came out – This is my FAVORITE Christmas cartoon! I love Mickey’s daughter in it.
He-Man and the Master of the Universe came on TV – “By the Power of Grayskull, I HAVE THE POWER”
Michael Jackson’s Thriller came out – Exciting future gleeks around the world.
A Christmas Story came out – Ohhhh Fuuudddggggeeee
I was born – Best thing to happen in 1983
Happy birthday to meeeee!
