You were Gwyneth Paltrow.
Wait, were you even around in the nineties?
Well, if so, you’re just like Gwynnie. You didn’t really get swept up in the fashion or bad hair decisions and you remain pretty much the exact same as you were then to this day. You’re not one for fads or trends and you’ll keep your centre parting and straight hair, thanks. Some people might think you’re boring but you prefer the word “normal”.
You were Rachel.
You were pretty nineties. You got caught up in a few fads here and there and collected a pog or two, but you weren’t any worse than anyone else. You know your Alf from your Barney and your Beverley Hills from your Melrose Place but you’ve moved on. You can look back on photos with mild embarrassment but you still looked good.
You were a bizarre hybrid of Clarissa and Bob Saget.
You basically epitomised the nineties. You had crazy hair and you wore double denim like you just didn’t care. You knew all the lyrics to the California Dream’s songs and legend has it that your Tamagotchi lived to be 103. But the nineties are over. We have to let them go. Put down the slinky.
