- Stuffed animals. No barbies or anything really girly girly. If parents ever bought me anything, it was from the swapmeet (AKA $0.50 toys) or it was some hand me down from my brother
- Books. Because I was more or less forbidden to do anything fun or anything that would involve not being under house arrest, I read whatever I could.
Favorite TV Shows
Like faden, I was not allowed to watch TV. In fact, the TV was locked up somewhere in the garage until high school. If I somehow got to watch TV, I think favorite shows were "Amazing Adventures of Spiderman" and Batman.
- Monopoly board game...which was bought at a yard sale and half the pieces were missing including parts of the cardboard box. But, because my parents did not believe in social interaction, I loved to play the game whenever I DID somehow have someone over so that they they would play with me for hours upon hours upon hours because Monopoly is a game that can't ever really end too quickly with just 2 players.
- Didn't have a computer until I was in high school. Our internet connection (remember 14k modems?) was so bad, that the only real game I could play was probably Solitaire...
If I could rate my childhood...
* * *
Really wasn't much of a childhood. Most of it involved just studying all the time and being at home. No television, no telephone, no car. Not allowed to go out, not allowed to have friends, not allowed to even really exercise, unless it was in the backyard. Not allowed to go to the library, movies, next door, biking....Sure, pretty boring at times, but it was just really **** lonely.
Gawd, you kids are spoiled these days.

salire in alto più che mai
i do, i do guardare nel futuro e sorridere
