  1. 29 years! I am old!

    A lot of the grownups I knew in Oregon remembered this happening, which kind of blew my mind—it always seemed like something that happened on the news to me, rather than in the actual world of people I could talk to.

  2. Also, the fashions in that video are AMAZING.

  3. I know, I was almost 1 year old when this happened!

  4. Mount St. Helens erupted…and then poof! My sister was born! :-)
