Take a Trip in the Wayback Time Machine (WIAW)

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:

HIT Clips

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

wiaw-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?)

Power Rangers

wiaw-power-rangers

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.

Pokemon

wiaw-pokemon

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

wiaw-scooby-doo-mac-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?

wiaw-where-in-the-world

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.

Bubble Tape

wiaw-bubble-tape

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

wiaw-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

wiaw-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!

Third Weekend on Campus (Nostalgia!)

Thanks for all of your awesome comments on my Labor Day WIAW!

———————————————————————–

Happy Friday everyone! (Written on Friday Night, posted on Saturday morning… WHOOPS.)

And what a Happy Friday it is! Today I only had one class (Intro to Business… also my shortest!), it isn’t too hot (although it just started raining now… fine with me!) and I am geared up and ready for the weekend.

I’m not going home this weekend because: 1. It isn’t extended like with Labor Day. 2. I’m trying to go home only every other week. Space is good.

This morning I woke up bright and early at 6:00 am.

Read some blogs.

Congratulations Kath!

And made myself a ginormous bowl of quinoa porridge!

Directions to come later!

Delicious.

Then I read some articles for my class today, ate lunch, and then headed out to talk with my professor before class.

Tonight I don’t have much planned except going to eat with one of my friends.
Tomorrow and Sunday is going to be jam-packed with an Arts Festival, homework, homework, homework, homework (4 classes worth) and episode 5 of Sherlock on Sunday night.

As I mentioned before, I read a lot of blogs this morning, and one was somewhat new-ish to me. I’ve read it before, but not on a daily basis. It was Beyond-Bananas. Such a great name. And looking through her past posts like the good little bloggity-stalker I am, I happened upon this awesome idea: Childhood Food Favorites.

Here is my version:

When I Was A Child…

1. I loved Scooby Doo.

I may or may not have had a Scooby Doo Birthday Party that you can read about on my old blog (???).

2. Pokemon was awesome.

Add to that Power Rangers, Digimon, Yugioh and Dragon Ball Z and you have basically got my Saturday mornings.

For a little girly flair, I also watched…

 

 

3. My favorite combo was Keebler and the Olsen Twins.

What?

Let me explain before you start going off on some rampant/crazy notions. One of my favorite treats as a youngster were the Keebler Fudge Sticks Peanut Butter Cookies.

OH MY LANTAS!

And then I would lounge on the floor, rereading The New Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley: The Case of the Cheerleading Camp Mystery. Most of the time I actually read this book by the door, so if anyone were to come in I could quickly hide the Keebler cookies.

I was a sneaky one.

4. Wild Watermelon Pop-Tarts

Do you remember these? Maybe not because they discontinued them, but they were the best! Like, even better than Frosted Wild Berry.

I’m serious.

5. Furbies may have been the best/worst thing ever created.

This post has got me thinking of all my favorite childhood food that I will never be able to eat again! I’m thinking a WISH-LIST food page is in order. I’ll make a list of my old favorites, and then slowly overtime I will recreate them to be healthier and allergy-free. WHAT-DO-YOU-THINK?

Tell me at least one of your favorites: childhood favorite food, tv show and toy.

What are your plans for the weekend?
