Dust in the wind man. Dust in the wind.
Roundys grocery stores (mostly just Pick ‘n’ Save now) in Wisconsin sell a store brand chip in a flavor called All Dressed Up that I am pretty sure are the same or similar to Canadian All Dressed chips. They are delicious.
He can do whatever he wants with his face…as long as he’s wearing that AMAZING hat!
I think Get in Shape Girl gave me a complex that has lingered long into my adult life.
I might still be a tiny bit bitter that I never had Jem or a Big Wheel (although I had most of the rest of these things and was generally spoiled).
Christmas Eve on Sesame Street and The Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special (not technically a movie, but it’s the best Christmas special ever)
Milwaukee Dill Pickles
Dollar store spatula = MUCH cheaper “long-reach lotion applicator”
Oh no, it’s all one thing and it is DELICIOUS!
The Jello Salad Ice Cream is AWESOME! It’s my favorite new MN State Fair food that I’ve tried so far this year. I haven’t tried the Beer Gelato yet, but that’s on my list for when I go back this weekend. Yay fair!!!
Jeff & Jody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved Today’s Special SO MUCH. Songs from that show still pop into my head regularly. It looks like there are a few episodes on YouTube now, but I’ve always wished I could get my hands on the full series. That and You Can’t Do That on Television. That show is so elusive! There are some great potential match ups from that show that this list is missing.
Dust in the Wind by Kansas
What about Leave it to Beaver???
The Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House on the Prairie series
No, seriously, how is it possible that Kurt Loder is 69?!?!? I had such a hard time believing it that I had to look it up. It is indeed true. Also, Martha Quinn is 55. 55!!!!
MorningStar has a new roasted garlic and quinoa burger that is AMAZING! I am a total carnivore and I love these things. I mix sriracha and sour cream to use as a condiment and top them with spinach.
I’m American, but my last name is a Manx name. I enjoy having a unique last name, but people always struggle to pronounce it correctly. It does spark many interesting conversations about the Isle of Man and the Manx language though. I really hope to visit the Isle of Man someday. I would like to see the home of my distant ancestors, and it would be very exciting to meet people who might be able to pronounce my name correctly on the first try!
My brother lives in Fort Wayne, and I demanded (and happily received) a Tin Caps t-shirt for Christmas. That apple is so angry. It cracks me up.
Before I even clicked on this, I was like, this is gonna be some Minnesotan moaning abut gray ducks, isn’t it. Annnnnd, I was right. JUST STAHP MINNESOTA! I am a transplanted cheesehead living in MN, so this is basically my life.
Those floral pants have a pattern based on a type of Norwegian folk painting called rosemaling. I recognized it immediately, as my hometown in WI is all about their Norwegian heritage, and rosemaling is everywhere. I’m used to seeing it on plates and sweatshirts and stuff, but it makes for some pretty cool pants!
I’m a lesbian, and I’M upset Russell Wilson is not on this list.
I had a really cool Pepsi watch in about 1989. It had a wide, blue plastic band. On the top of the band was a metal loop. Hanging from the loop was a tiny, plastic three dimensional Pepsi can, and there was a teeny digital clock on the end of the can. I loved that thing.
As far as clothes went though? No one would have ever worn a Pepsi shirt. It was all about those Coke rugby shirts.
#24 might change my life. I can’t believe I never thought of doing that before!
Addition to #6 — You also don’t need to use nearly as much detergent as detergent manufacturers would have you believe. Half as much as directed is more than enough. Some people don’t use any detergent at all with good results. It’s the agitation in the washer that cleans your clothes more than detergent.
I ran across E. Nesbit on ManyBooks, and read everything of hers they have. I loved all of it! I think her books really stand the test of time
The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White
I’ve had the bacon, and it was just so wrong. It had a maple sweetness with a smoky undertone and the finish and long-lingering aftertaste was a very chemically Bacos kind of flavor. I have an unopened bottle of Lester’s Fixins corn flavored soda, but I’m scared of it
This is a genuinely excellent article! Lots of useful tips and things I had never seen before.
What?!?! No mention of Frank Gehry? He was one of my favorite Arthur guests. He helped the gang through designing a new tree house after theirs collapsed. Aaaand clearly I have watched way too much Arthur.
