My sadness over the loss of Saturday mail got me thinking. What other things no longer exist from our childhood? Come, reminisce with me.
While the shows on now can be pretty good, there are some shows I really miss watching. There is still a hole in my heart that these shows used to fill, and I guess the only way to cope is to tell you guys just how much I miss them.
You didn’t leave all your work until Sunday night did you? What!?! You did. That’s okay. No stress. You’ll get it all done. We’re so sure that you’ll get it all done that we’re giving you a few more excuses to procrastinate. This week we’re going back to our Friday nights in and checking out the TGIF lineup.
The battle was tough. Some good men lost (I'm talking to you, Backstreet Boys and Skip Its). There were some major upsets (I loved Gel Pens just as much as the next 12-year-old, but who knew they would make it further than Monica Lewinsky?!). There were some huge surprises (Beanie Babies didn’t make it past round 1? WTF?) And now we have a winner.
Over the past month, we’ve been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade and we've had the tough job of saying goodbye to some of our personal favorites: Skip-its, Dunkaroos, Super Nintendo, the Olsen Twins, and every blogger's original writing tool, the gel pen. And now, we're down to the FINAL TWO: Cory and Topanga VS. The Spice Girls.
We’ve been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade for awhile now and it's getting INTENSE. Zack Morris is OUT. Spice Girls are IN. Clinton and Lewisky CREAMED Pam Anderson's sex tape. (OK, bad choice of words....) And somehow, Cory and Topanga are still in the game? WTF?
We've been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade for over a week now and things are getting serious. I mean, who knew people loved Cory and Topanga more than N*SYNC? I'm sure I'm not the only one who didn't see that coming (but I am now wondering when we'll get a Boy Meets World reunion up in herrrre).
Thursday we left it up to you to vote on the best recreational things and events from our favorite decade. While we weren't surprised to see Pogs beat out Devil Sticks, we were mouths-on-the-floor shocked to see Monica Lewinsky beat O.J Simpson by a landslide. Guess presidential sex (or whatever Bill called it) outweighs murder these days.
In a move that shocked no one, 'Salute Your Shorts' creamed 'Hey Dude!' and the majority of you favored Mary-Kate and Ashley to Tia and Tamara. But we were surprised to see Fruit by the Foot breeze past Dunkaroos. What's so special about 3 feet of chewy fruit? Dunkaroos are cookies...dipped in FROSTING. But it's time to exercise your right to vote once again.
It might be 2010, but here at CollegeCandy we're still stuck in the '90s. All you have to do is say Chumbawhumba and we're off and running on a '90s nostalgia debate that lasts the entire day. We know we're not the only people out there that still rock out to N'Sync and still remember the desperation you felt when you lost your favorite Pogs slammer.
Sure, times are tough right now. Money is tight. But that is still no excuse for the 20% increase i&helli
