Oldies but Goodies


Full House

Have you watched one of these gems lately?  I still find myself sitting down, laughing out loud at good ole Joey Gladstone, making bets on whether it’s Ashley or Mary Kate, and then changing the channel as soon as the life lesson music comes on.  No need to get serious Full House… no need.

Fanny packs

I’m not sure who decided that fanny packs weren't cool because a fanny pack perfectly combines fashion with function. It should have EVOLVED not DISSOLVED.  By now we should all be walking around with fantastic leather pouches, and have done away with those annoying shoulder straps and hand-held clutches... they're so restrictive.  I’m bringing fanny packs back into my life and I’m going to bedazzle them just to rub it in people’s faces.

Wow.  Remember the pure joy of your first Walkman?  The satisfying click of putting in the tape, and then pressing the big clunky “PLAY” button… or the squeal of the tape when you hit rewind?  I specifically remember borrowing my dad’s super-cool “SPORT” black/yellow Walkman every time I was asked to vacuum, inserting the Spin Doctors cassette, and singing “little miss, little miss, little miss CAN’T BE WRONG… what’cha gonna do?  Get into another one of these ole rockin’ love songs- OH!” I’d perfect my dance moves and my vibrato while making designs in the carpet.  Thank you, Spin Doctors for making household chores a truly rockin’ experience.

Full House, Growing Pains, Saved by the Bell, & Boy Meets World - you name it! For once I can say thank-you to MTV for playing something I enjoy.

As for another oldie, whatever happened to Gigapets? I'm not saying these should come back - but, they were neat at the time! I do think they should bring back Surge! And, I'm thrilled to say that I actually found Rice Crispy TREATS cereal recently. I've been in breakfast heaven ever since.

Oldies but goodies.

Full House is almost too painful to watch. Only thing worse? Family Matters!! However, definitely still love some Saved by the Bell! Screech was a perv!

I agree. Fanny packs should never have lost their luster. In my mind, they haven't. Have you seen this post? I think you'll love: http://hagenhoopla.blogspot.com/2012/03/stylin-saturday-fanny-packs.html
