I think I must be within a couple of years of Lisa Roth (it's hard to correct for localization issues[*]).

- I don't remember seeing Star Wars, but I _do_ remember having a read-along Star Wars book. It came with a 45 in a pocket in the back, and R2D2 beeped at you when it was time to turn the page.

- I didn't have computer, but the girl next door did. Her father typed in games out of magazines. The games never worked. Their cat was called DOS; my parents were the only other people on the block who understood that this was funny.

- I wasn't allowed to watch the following because my mother objected on various grounds:
* The Dukes of Hazzard.
* CHiPs.
* The Smurfs.
* The Greatest American Hero.
* various others
This greatly inhibited my ability to join in certain playground games. On the other hand, I was the only child whose parents got her up in the middle of the night to watch certain shows they did approve of (including - and I can barely believe this now - The Kenny Everett Video Show).

I'm going to guess I was born slightly after Dick was in 6th grade.
