Just an Everyday Bitch tagged me as a fellow Queen of All Things Awe-summm. I'm honored, thrilled, and still salivating over the glorious pronunciation guide-type spelling of "awesome".
The rules are that I am supposed to list seven things that make me (in this case, all children of the nineties) awe-summm and then pass the award on to seven other people who you think are fabulously awesummm.
Seven things that make children of the nineties Awe-summm:
Flannel. Headbands with enormous bows. Jelly sandals. These kids today may be unaware, but we know the truth.
I know it's been said time and time again, but reiteration never hurt. The network that gave us a talking popsicle stick, Weinerville, and Roundhouse will forever live in our hearts. Okay, well, it's still on the air, but it's magic has faded substantially.
3) Young adult book series.
Sweet Valley High. Animorphs. Babysitter's Club. Goosebumps. A million Full House series. These book people knew how to market.
In our day, we knew to call a planet a planet.
Children growing up today will never experience the magic and wonder of listening to that dial-up modem noise as they watch the running AOL logo bring them to pure chat room heaven.
6) The economy
I think the picture speaks for itself.
7) Irresponsible advertising
Why not sell cigs to kids with a super suave cartoon camel? Or use scantily clad teenagers in provocative poses to sell jeans? It made perfect sense at the time.
I am pleased to bestow this award to:
Philly & Me (and I promise I will get back to your tag soon, as soon as I figure out what I'm going to do with it! )
