HA-HA-HA-PPY FRIDAY Y'ALL Super psyched for my first Friday Fun post and even more excited that we've entered October and are one week closer to Halloween! 

Whenever this time of year comes 'round, I'm reminded of my first October in the US, going into the second grade, in good ole Houston, Texas.

Honestly, that October was the first and most lasting impression I've had of the US of A. And what can I say? I'm a sucker for childhood nostalgia *chef's kiss* - that yearning for a simpler time (god) especially now 😂 

 

I'll kick off this week with all my childhood go-tos: 

School back in the day 

Elvis Presley Lunch Box - Cool Stuff to Buy and Collect Soon, kids will not know what these were used for. ( how bout my fellow phi sigs?) Who remembers the days of saving information on floppy disks. 

(I actually still have that exact same lunchbox at home)

Gotta have the goods!

Smithsonian Collections Object: The Sony TPS-L2 “Walkman” Cassette Player,  National Museum of American History | Bibliolore Got one as a kid and was fascinated by the little claymation figures and scenery in the stories!! So . . . I got each of my daughters one. Guess what? They had little to no interest in them!! I am still baffled by their lack of enthusiasm!!  :oD  Putting cool beads on your bike spokes. | 45 Things From Your '90s Childhood You Probably Forgot About

The real OGs know ;) 

Why Windows users will never let Microsoft kill their beloved MS Paint |  Digital Trends GIF snake - animated GIF on GIFER

Also these movies made my childhood! 

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back | Illustrations de star wars,  Images star wars, Dessins star wars Amazon.com: HOCUS POCUS: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy,  Omri Katz, Thora Birch, Vinessa Shaw, Charles Rocket, Stephanie Faracy,  Sean Murray, Kathleen Freeman, Doug Jones, Amanda Shepherd, Larry Bagby,  Tobias Jelinek, The Sound of Music is amazing! You MUST watch!

 

As someone who remembers so much of my past, and now have so much time to reflect on my younger days (lol), its wild to see how everything has added ✨flavor✨ to your personality 😆✌🏼

What do y'all remember about your childhood? Don't be shy 🤠 drop your favorite childhood goody or memory in the comments below!

Books were my thing. Lots and lots and LOTS of books.
Tintin and Asterix are particular favourites.

Matt, awesome collection of Cousteau! I was always a poor reader growing up but did read some of his books and loved all of his TV series as I was an avid diver beginning in HS.

I am proud to admit that I was pretty obsessed with Spice Girls. Spice World was my favorite movie, and I always dreamt of having a tour bus of my own!

@Sven Cipido- Nice one, you beat me to it.   I was going to dig out the 5.25" disks I still have for a photo (I installed Bane of the Cosmic Forge  from them once, but I suspect their age and my lack of care has made them unreadable).  I dumped the 8" disks when I moved into this house 12 years ago.

@Matt Doar- I liked the Tintin books, if for nothing else, the joke about the twins, but Asterix is by far in the top three educational books I have ever had in my life.  When my parents realised that I was utterly utterly shit at learning languages beyond English, they enlisted our next-door neighbour to try to help. 

She was able to get me through a Latin O-level (B) and French (D) and Spanish GCSEs (E), based purely on having "Asterix the Gaul" books printed in all four languages.  

I have to say it's a metric-shit-ton funnier in Latin and English than it is in French or Spanish though.  

40 years later, my father still delights in pointing out that I can't even speak American proper like, let alone other non-English-based languages.

Oh yes indeed, I remember writing some essay about Rome using details taken straight from Asterix the Legionary. Cool that you had them in four languages.

Oh yes those 5.25" discs. So much space for data on it :-D. 
When using these discs it was like a DJ switching them to read the whole program on my Apple.

But the 8" where is that time.

My next-door-neighbour was a professor of linguistics at Reading university - she actually had a copy of Asterix The Gaul in every language it had been printed in back then, plus several hand-written ones.

I wish I'd had the time  with her to learn the ancient greek version (modern Greek is the same letters, but a totally different language) and the Egyptian Hieroglyph version (although she found pTerry Pratchett's "Pyramids" very amusing when it pointed out that it looks like "squiggly line, water jar, field of grain, constipated eagle, two squiggly lines").  I was less keen on learning from the Klingon or Sumerian versions...

I love a throwback!! 

@Nic Brough -Adaptavist- I too had Sam and Max, but my favourite was Day of the Tentacle!

I also loved all the 90's kids TV:

  • Fun House
  • The Queens Nose
  • Kenan and Kel
  • Sabrina
  • Art Attack
  • SMTV

Don't miss shellsuits though!

I love this so much!  You've just sent me on a whole nostalgia kick.  I'm sure I'm missing a whole bunch of stuff, but here are a few things from my childhood that your pics prompted:

I was going to grab a photo off the web, but then I realised I still had this sitting in the top of the wardrobe.

This isn't the original one I had but I did buy it for the memories :)spirograph.jpg

 

In terms of movies:

  • Doctor Dolittle (the original 1960's version)
  • Grease
  • Mary Poppins
  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
  • The Sound of Music
  • Bedknobs & Broomsticks
  • Swallows and Amazons
  • The Little Shop of Horrors
  • Rocky Horror Picture Show (we had no idea of all the innuendo!)

Rocky Horror Picture Show!!! What a classic! Went to a theatre in Austin where they'd act it out in front of the movie 💯

Almost everything mentioned above leads to a throwback.... I am apparently older than I thought. 🤣


But just this weekend I had an Asterix throwback... in dialect: Franconian and Ruhrpott German. 🤣
