To all the young whimper snappers....

I know it's been a little while since I've posted anything, but I had to go on hiatus because life was getting a little hectic for a minute. But now I am back with a new list. I am seriously contemplating renaming this blog 'List of 28 Things...and a Squirrel's Not One'. lol. Yeah... just a thought.

Moving onward.... So I was sitting and watching tv one day when this 'List of Things That Make Me Feel Old' beat its way into my head with a Pixy Stix (see also Things to do/not do in a horror senario.)

1. Tv shows - A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Alvin and the Chipmunks (cartoon version), the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Step By Step, Family, Matters, Boy Meets World just to name a few.

(Aww....brings back memories. Wait...what? Not those types of memories you perve! lol.)

2. Shoelace buckles, as I like to call them, or clips.

(Not the exact ones I'm talking about but you get the gist.)

3. When extremely loud bass music starts to get on your nerves.

(^ Am I right? lol.)

4. The 90's SNL cast : Nealon, Sandler, Farley, Myers, Spade, etc.

(when SNL was actually good.)

5. Music - Hanson, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, N*Sync, Britney Spears(before she went crazy) , Cake, Nirvana, etc.

(Mmm Bop is now stuck in your head... you're welcome. :-) )

6. I Spy books

(Admit it, you liked them.)

7. When girls could never have too many hair clips and almost every one of them had a butterfly clip.

(the sad thing is I still have mine.)

8. Movies - the Little Mermaid, the Lion King, Aladdin, etc.

(A time when we all believed in prince charming.)

9. The original gaming systems like the NES, Sega Genisis, Super NES

(The reason most of us have lung issues.)

10. When Windows 95 was thought to be awesome.

(A time when the most monitors got smashed.)

11. I conjunction with #10, When 3.5 Floppy disks were the shizz.

(It's not the size that matters, it's how you use it.)

12. Barbie actually looked descent and not like a 16 old hooker and Skipper was still around.

(Ho-ishness not included.)

13. The only way to get in touch with someone was by landline phone, drive to see them, or mail.

(Ring, ring, ....Hello...)

14. Tales From the Crypt. I know this should've gone under tv shows, but I thought it deserved a listing by itself.

(I don't think that's Maybelline, he's just born with it.)

15. Cassette tapes and VHS

(The original pirating. Arrrg....)

So, this was just part one of what I am going to dub 'Nostalgia List' for short. I know some of the things on here may not seem that old, but they are to me so bug off!! ...I'm sorry baby I love you! lol. Anyway, I hope everybody has felt as old as I have reading this. If anyone has any ideas that they want to give me for pt. 2 leave a comment and I'll see about adding it. 'Til next time I bid you 'Adieu'.
