things from my childhhood that prob won't live up to the memory

Another great blog topic that I'm taking from Secret Society of List Addicts - "Things from my childhood that probably won't live up to my fond memories of them."

No seriously people.  That blog is awesome.  You should check it out.  I get very happy when I see it turn to bold in my Google Reader.

Back to the posting.
  • Alice in Wonderland TV Show on Disney - There used to be this show on the Disney Channel that was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland.  I used to watch it every day.  Every single day while getting ready for school.  I'm sure it was terrible.  In fact, I think I tried to watch it again a few years later.  And it was in fact, terrible. 

  • Run the Bases - In the summer, we used to always play this game on the beach, Run the Bases.  Basically, you set up two "bases" and place them a decent distance apart.  Then two "ends" each "guard" a base and throw a tennis ball back and forth.  The "runners" then try and run back and forth between the two bases.  If you get pegged by the tennis ball, you become an "end".  There is no way to win this game.  You just never want to be an "end".

  •  Bubble Tape

Yeah you remember this.  I'm pretty sure this was NOT quality bubble gum.  But it was awesome because you could chew AS MUCH AS YOU WANTED.  Nothing like hanging out by the baseball fields in elementary/middle school with a roll of bubble yu

and I totally agree with  Secret Society of List Addicts for this last one:

  • Easy-bake Oven - There is no way cookies made from a mix and baked by the heat of a light bulb taste as good as I remember. No. Way. 

Anything I've missed?

  1. I had bubble tape in the relatively recent past. You are correct: not high quality.
