7-Eleven,not the Chimichanga but the large microwaveable Cheesebuger and the self serve Slurpee in several flavours.

Now those were good times.

Quarter century of hankering after a slurpee is a long time,there were two regular flavours brown and green with i think two rare flavours the orange and the red.

This was a few years before American football had an occaisional appearance on the new sattelite channels and fans would have to get their fix by travelling to Chicksands,presumably they ate Reese's and Hershey and drank rootbeer.

No again,the Clash were slightly previous and MTV had just begun,there was Sigue Sigue Sputnik.

Looking at images of boots they were probably oxblood.

Coming home from high-school the convenience store had a scrolling platform arcade game where your muscled protagonist could upgrade his armour and axe on the end of a chain,i thought it was Golden Axe but that came later and was very different.

Twenty pence lasted a long time but not as long as watching your buddy edge ever closer to the final boss of Vulcan Venture.

There was a Shuriken craze centered about a small sporting goods store.
