I feel like I say this every week, but I seriously have a ton of homework due tomorrow- a Physics report on the reasonableness of Yoda in Star Wars Episode V (don’t even get me started…) as well as my part of a large business report having to do with that survey that some of you took awhile back.
But I’m never one to miss a good party, so I’ve decided to pop in real quick and share with you something a little cooky, but totally fun. It’s inspired in part by Carrots N Cake’s post earlier this week, as well as my previous nostalgia post that I did way back in September during my third week of college. Boy time flies!
Here are my top 9 things that I miss from the 90’s:
These things were the bomb. They saved me from excruciating bus rides with kids I was too scared to look at let alone talk to. I still have them stuffed away in a drawer at home. “What was I listening to?” you may ask. The classic- Pink, Faith Hill, NSync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Madonna, SClub7 and Destiny’s Child.
Boy Meets World
I looked forward to watching the re-runs of this show every single night. 8:00-8:30. No questions asked. I’ve seen every single episode and I still aspire to one day be like Corey and Topanga. Not ashamed! (P.S. Who’s excited for Girl Meets World?)
Did any girls watch this show? Maybe it was just me, but I was addicted to the hidden identities and crime-fighting ways of these masked superheroes. I watched Power Rangers with my brother whenever we got picked up by my grandmother after school and stayed at her house. Of course my favorite was the pink ranger, and I always was madly in love with the guy dressed in red.
Again, I’m not sure if this was a widespread thing in female circles, but my friends and I had stacks of Pokemon cards that we used to swap during recess until they were banned. I didn’t really pay attention to the HP of the Pokemon, I just wanted the cute and shiny (holographic) ones.
Scooby Doo Macaroni and Cheese
I’ve professed my love for Scooby Doo countless times already, but this may yet be my favorite form of the iconic puppy dog. I swear, the special-shaped macaroni and cheese just tasted so much better! Maybe it’s just me and my slight aversion to cheese at times, but seriously, this stuff was addicting.
Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?
Having a mom who was a teacher certainly had its advantages. One was that she always had the best games to play on her computers at school. I remember on the weekends when she’d have to go to school to prepare lesson plans and make copies she’d ask if I wanted to come. Uh… Yes! Especially if it meant that I got to play Where in the World is Carmen San Diego.
The gum of my childhood. For those of you who have sat in the backseat of a car recently, remember those little pouches where you can store all kinds of
junk good stuff? Well the pockets on the seats of my parents cars were always stuffed with books, pens, pencils, Burger King toys, and this stuff- Bubble Tape. I just love blowing bubbles. Plus, it helps that it was pink.
Rice Krispie Treats Cereal
This cereal does not show up in may grocery stores these days. I still think it is pure genius. Basically the creators of Rice Krispie Treats Cereal just made Rice Krispie Treats in a smaller form and packaged it inside cereal boxes for kids to enjoy for breakfast. I think parents soon caught on though that their children didn’t need even MORE sugar.
Sour Cream and Onion Cheez-Its
My favorite flavor of chip met my favorite type of cracker. Instant success if you ask me. I honestly don’t know why they stopped making this flavor because it was very very good.
Now it’s time for me to go to bed and get up nice and early tomorrow morning to finish some of that homework! I’m still hoping to do my usual post this Friday, so if all works out, a new recipe should be up soon.
Happy WIAW. After you leave a comment with YOUR favorite thing from the 90’s, head on over to Jenn at Peas and Crayons and check out some of the other awesome bloggers!
