I was sitting here, staring blankly out the window here at Lakewood (as I quite frequently do), and I began to compile a mental list of things that I miss from the '90s. The '90s were a good time, albeit a few missteps (grunge, home perms, scrunchies, etectera), and I do miss them at times. Anyone who lived their glory days in the 90s will agree. Heartily, I'm sure.

Things I Enjoyed (And Didn't) And Miss From The '90s:

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Marky Mark (without him, there would be no Mark Wahlberg)

Full House

Janet Jackson

Family Matters

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Clarissa Explains It All

New Kids on the Block


Ren and Stimpy

TRL (for those of you who may not know what that is, Total Request Live)


TLC (the group, not the channel)


Puff Daddy

Vanilla Ice (integral to the '90s)


Beanie Babies



Boyz II Men

Beavis and Butthead

Married With Children

Those bracelets you slapped on your wrists

Those Nike shoes you had to pump up (what the hell were those called? I remember wanting a pair and my mom saying no.)

The New Mickey Mouse Club (Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell...)

The WB

Buffy The Vampire Slayer




Pinky and the Brain

Austin Powers

Spice Girls

Xena, Warrior Princess

If you're suddenly filled with memories of the '90s, please feel free to share.


  1. Thanks so much for the comment!

    And the animaniacs have influenced me in a great number of ways. They were geniuses!! I'll be following this blog!


  2. Really?!?!!? You didnt like scrunchies!?!?! OH, that kinda hurt my SOUL!!! SO I have a slightly embarrassing story about scrunchies... I was on my ship in 2005 and I asked a girl who lived with me if I could borrow a scrunchie, and she looked at me in disbelief and said "noone wears thoes anymore..." too my horror it was true. I guess I was in denial!!

    Bring back the scrunchie!! Bring back the scrunchie!! {chanting}
    oh i miss the 90s!!!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for such thoughtful comment!
    I'm also a big fan of the 90's. I love Boyz II Men and you know what.. they're coming here in Manila for a concert! Wish I could get some tickets. I enjoyed reading reading your posts, would definitely follow you. :)


I'm a shallow person, so I love to hear what you have to say about me...Lavish me with praise, or rip me up and make me want to cry.
