Things I Miss

I get all nostalgic about things sometimes. Don’t pretend like you didn’t know, you see me link up my favorite song as something from at least 10 years ago nine out of ten times on Fridays. It got me thinking about things I miss.

1. Pluto – It used to be a planet. Now it isn’t. WTF Pluto?

2. Manners – People these days, especially young people, have zero manners. I see the way kids talk back to their parents and how they act in public. If I acted like that, my dad would have beat my ass in front of everyone and not think twice about it. And you know what, it would have been deserved!

3. The Hills Christmas commercials where they would sing “Hills is where the toys are.” That might be a northern thing, or a Pittsburgh thing. I don’t even know if Hills exists anymore? I don’t think they do…

Hmmmm the little elf looking Santa Claus is way creepier than I remember but this has the jingle that I miss so much!

4. Nickelodeon – When they had all of the good shows. You know what shows I am talking about…

5. Twizzlers Sourz – There are many foods that have come and go, and I miss a lot of them, but if I could only bring back one…it would be Twizzlers Sourz.

6. Opinions – Why are people so damn sensitive about everything these days?! My opinion is my opinion, it is ok if you feel differently. We could even have a little sensible debate about it if you’d like or share our points of view, but at the end of the day…..what I think about something shouldn’t effect your life just as how you feel about something shouldn’t effect mine. And chances are, I won’t change my mind and I don’t expect you to either. No need to get bent out of shape about. And for the love….Facebook breeds the worst of these offenders.

7. My metabolism – Seriously, when I turned 30 it disappeared and never looked back. Rude! I am sorry I used to talk smack about you before, I take it back! Please come home!

8 – JTT – But really, where did Jonathan Taylor Thomas go?

9. AIM – Here me out….I know we have Google chat, Facebook, Twitter, etc…but nothing beats AIM. I felt it was more personal, you could see who was online and available for chat, and away messages you guys. Away messages were everything.

10. Shrimp Queso from Five Bar – Once upon a time (back in 2013) Five Bar here in Birmingham had shrimp queso on their menu. It was amazing. Amazing. They “took it away for the summer to return in the fall” and yet, it never came back. All I have is this picture of our very last time consuming it. And lost dreams.

Does Wednesday actually happen without my ecard confessions? I’m fairly certain that it does not.

So embrace it.

And I fail everyday...miserably.

Soooo laughable. I can think of a few people this could refer to.

Yet she takes that as a win. Its not.  If I dont say some th ing it eats me up inside.  If I do say it oooo it was mean, altho I was just walked on by high heel cleats

You don't know me.

Linking up with my girl Liz for the Hump Day Blog Hop.

    Away messages were awesome! Haha. And I really miss all the awesome shows on Nickelodeon. They were so much better back in the day!

    I miss the good cartoons too! Netflix has Rugrats movies and my daughters love them!!

    A lot of people seem to not have manners anymore… It’s sad!

    It weirds me out when people cannot have a difference of opinion. I’m like what’s wrong with you? Our commonalities aren’t the only thing that makes us friends – our differences do too!

  • Reply Joey November 12, 2014 at 9:29 am

    First of all–I still use AIM! I have a few friends who still leave it up all day at work and so it’s our best form of chatting. Also, the manners thing. I CANNOT STAND kids these days. I wouldn’t even know what would happen if I acted or spoke the way kids speak now because the thought wouldn’t ever enter my mind! I’m tired of the world today. I just am.

  • Reply Mree November 12, 2014 at 9:51 am

    I love AIM and use it all the time!! Oh it drives me crazy that people do not have manners. It’s really really sad. Good manners go a long way!!

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says November 12, 2014 at 10:01 am

    OMG, that ecard with the happiness and perfect abs!!! Too much!

    I definitely miss good manners. Seriously, it’s not hard to say please and thank you and hold the door open for the person behind you. There are some parents I know who don’t correct their kids when they act like assholes and I find it hard to be friends with those parents.

  • Reply Pamela @ November 12, 2014 at 10:55 am

    Some of these things still exist. I watch Nickelodeon with Taylor a lot and we catch things like Are You Afraid of the Dark? on Netflix. Also, with the manners – idk what happened to people these days. Kids are so frighteningly bratty.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth November 12, 2014 at 10:57 am

    I think you need to call and demand that goes back on the menu because it looks amazing!!! Don’t even get me started on the youths today and their manners…..or lack thereof!

    i miss 90s music. the stuff out now is garbage (for the most part) but erryting in the 90s was pure awesome.

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design November 12, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Ahhh! The clock ecard! My car is 7 minutes ahead. And as I drive into work, anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes late, I am subtracting 7 from the time every couple minutes to figure out exactly how late I’m going to be.

    Good question – where DID Jonathon Taylor Thomas go?

  • Reply Katie November 12, 2014 at 12:16 pm

    Yes! Away messages were what is was all about. I treated mine as either encrypted messages or overly dramatic poetry. They were everything!!

  • Reply brooke lyn November 12, 2014 at 12:17 pm

    but for reals. JTT I miss you.

  • Reply Kerry November 12, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    Manners are seriously lacking. Having a difference of opinion is normal, people! Jeez! Bacon on everything!!!

  • Reply Tracy November 12, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    You’re so right about manners. I’m in classes with like 19-21 year olds and as soon as the clock hits when the class is supposed to be over, they all start packing up, talking, etc. EVEN IF the professor hasn’t finished talking yet. Sometimes the professor will have to almost yell just to finish what they were saying. It irks me every time, like seriously you guys can’t wait another 40 seconds for him to finish talk? Stuff like that happens all the time and I’m just like how do you people not have any more decency than that?!

  • Reply Lindsay November 12, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    My childhood dreams came true when I realized all the Are you Afraid of the Dark episodes are on youtube!

  • Reply kristen November 12, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    i didn’t have a lot of these things that are specific to america / you obviously but yes to the manners and opinions! i am definitely not a sensitive person and think ‘to each their own’ but there is something that is really annoying me right now that i have to vent about (post coming soon) that might mean i am one of those sensitive people but i just can’t help it. anywho. for reals… JTT and pluto are missed.

    Ok let’s talk rude young people – okay? Saturday, before we went up to CT – we were dropping my car off at the mechanic – and stopped at the next door DD so Klay could get coffee and to get Emry some munckins. This chick – TWO ahead of us – places her order – goes and picks up an OJ from the cooler next to us – AND DROPS THE PLASTIC BOTTLE ON THE GROUND – IN WHICH IT BASICALLY EXPLODED ALL OVER THE FLOOR – She looked at it, didn’t attempt to run to get napkins, alert someone, ANYTHING. She blinks, takes a new OJ out of the cooler – and proceeds to go pick up her bagel whatever. Then she goes to LEAVE – I looked at her, and said “Were you going to tell someone about your spill? Would you do this at home?” Her response to me “I was gunna BUT…” then she strutted out the store. WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I ran and grabbed napkins and told the cashier. DAMN KIDS!

    Also – in my mind the scientific community is stupid and we still have 9 planets.

    And I laughed out loud to most of these funnies – especially – the three gallons of crazy.

    I am so with you on opinions, I saw a news story showing Bill Clinton and George Bush as pretty good friends. I thought now there are two people we could all learn something from when it comes to liking someone with an opposite opinion.

  • Reply Susanne November 12, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    I never used AIM but I used MSN messenger. And yes it was so much nicer and more personal!! And I miss good old forums and communities. They are so much fun. Facebook is good for some things but it ruined so many other things…like good converations. And I couldn’t agree more about the debate thing!

  • Reply Jackie November 12, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    Hills was so much better than Walmart.

  • Reply Teh Megan November 12, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    #7 and #9.. OMG YES! We actually used AIM to talk to each other IN our suite in college when we didn’t want to yell across the hall, since our doors were always open. And choosing the right icon and setting the perfect away message and all the other profile info. I hate all the options we have now, it’s overwhelming and no one has the same things so you have to download a million different things to talk to people.. UGH. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston November 12, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    Such a fun post!! I actually heard the other day the scientist made a mistake and pluto needed to be a planet again…who knows!! Oh JTT…how I miss thee!!

  • Reply Amanda November 12, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    Bahahaha… metabolism and JTT. Mad respect, yo.

  • Reply Brooks November 12, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    AIM, JTT, opinions. You get me.

  • Reply Julia November 12, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Yes to all of these! Especially the manners one and the ultra-sensitive people! I mean, I’m pretty sensitive but some of these people take the cake!

    Why can’t Pluto still be a planet?? I feel like my childhood was a lie!

  • Reply Shane November 13, 2014 at 3:04 am

    Such a throwback! Love it

  • Reply November 13, 2014 at 8:12 am

    i miss respect and good manners. now there is such a feeling of entitlement and it’s ridiculous.

  • Reply Krystal November 16, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    haha I miss my metabolism too!

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie November 17, 2014 at 1:00 pm
