Am I the LAST PERSON ON EARTH to hear of RickRolling???

Click to remember this iconic YouTube video!

Well, folks, I found out today that I have–apparently–been living under a rock for the last decade or so. It’s a shame, too, because I actually thought I was hip enough to catch trends like the “Rick Roll.”

Definition according to the Marilyn Horton official dictionary:

RICK ROLL  verb 1) to trick someone into watching 1980’s pop sensation Rick Astley’s video to his awesome song,  “Never Gonna Give You Up”

Example: “Oh, man,  Marilyn sent me an email that told me to check out the newest cute British kid video on YouTube, but she Rick Rolled me! Now, I have that Rick Astley song stuck in my head!”

This is SOOO great…especially for a child of the 80’s who LOVED Rick Astley back in the day! I know I had at least 2 of his cassettes.

And, just so you know, I loved the song so much that I don’t even CARE how out of date the stunt is…I’m totally jumping on board the Rick Roll bandwagon, even if it is the caboose!

In other news, tonight my kids and I loaded up and went roller skating–which also, quite appropriately, fits with our 1980’s throw back theme of the day. Hmmmm, that was a fun accident. Roller skating was a blast and it brought back memories of a younger time when I wasn’t too scared I’d break my back if I tried the roller-skating limbo!

Just in case you’re wondering: yes, black lights and disco balls still hang in roller rinks. Some things will never change!

Ooops, 1987 called…they want their Ozone Layer back.
