    I’ve got a fondu pot… I know that’s 70′s, but I gotta use it for something.

  • Holly

    Um….fruit roll-ups? Or were they early 90s?

  • Holly

    Marshmallow fluff? Tab? Nerds?

  • gdawg

    Fruit roll ups were 80′s… nice one. Too bad I can’t find my Erik Estrada poster.

  • LeafGirl77

    NERDS!!!!!!!!!!!! I remember once as a kid I got an XL Blizzard from Dairy Queen made with Nerds. The thought of it now makes me sick.

    Not only a nerd Blizzard, but an Extra Large one. I’m lucky if I can finish a small now.

  • LeafGirl77

    What about Chews gum? I don’t know if those came out in the 80s, but that’s when I was eating them!!

    Number 200! wooo!

    Nerds and fruit rollups are very 80′s. And Garbage Pail Kids! They came with gum, I think, so you could serve those. If you have a Dillon’s Candy Store near you they sell those and any retro candy you can think of.

    I always loved Mike-n-Ike candies. And Hot Tamales, those little red candies. And wax lips! And those little wax bottles that you bite the tops off of and drink the juice inside. That is just downright goodness.

    Scents are a pretty powerful thing.

    Ahh back from my neck zapping, im fulla spark now.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    What is neck zapping? I missed something. Is that like bug zapping? I love those bug zappers. I know it is summertime when I hear the buzz of flies and gnats being electrocuted.

  • http://thekilowatthour.blogspot.com kilowatthour

    Hot tamales! Those are the best. Good for the movies. As are Twizzlers, through which Coke can be drunk.

    Katie – 27 minutes left!!!

    I hope your boss took you to lunch today for Sec Week!!!!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    OH, and sour patch kids! Those rock! I also used to drink Coke through twizzlers. The Twizzler tastes really good when it is saturated in Coke or Mountain Dew.

  • http://thekilowatthour.blogspot.com kilowatthour

    Sour patch kids!! I eat a whole bag every time I see a movie. And my husband eats a box of Hot Tamales. It’s like we’re actually 12.

    OMG: Feed me Jessicarabbit…feed me!

  • Henryk_

    I crane my neck to look at this (ordinaire) pic!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I always get sour patch kids at the movies – (a) because they are my favorite and (b) because most people can’t take the sourness of them and don’t want to eat any, therefore I have them all to myself.

  • Henryk_

    Kat, yes certain scents can be a pretty powerful, erotic thing!

  • http://reformedstrippersanon.blogspot.com JessicaRabbit

    Neck zapping, its when you go to the chiropractor and they put 4 little pads on your neck and upper back and zap you up with current to make your muscles contract and release for 20 minutes so they can then wrench your head around and try to make your spine be good.

    Lauren, I would but I dont think I can make virtual food yet, im working on it though!

  • Henryk_

    Neck zapping – the easy (lazy and expensive) way to exercise

    I’m confused. Is this a palm tree in the background?????!!!!

    nicole kidman has *booty flies* too, just like heather.

  • http://www.dooce.com/archives/nubbin/04_27_2005.html RazDreams

    dear heather,

    i hope you think about ms. kate evans’ booty flies while you’re staring at her as she interviews you. i hope her booty flies make you smile with glee.

    sometimes i forget what the sky looks like. living in the city, you kind of forget what the sky looks like at dusk or sunrise.

    great photo.

    I’m writing about my kids too (not as well of course). At what point do I stop? Do I need their permission at some point (e.g., when they are teens)? Will they hate me more because I blog about them?

  • Holly

    “But Heather, your blog is TERRIBLY funny!” Oooh, I think Kate Evans is a fan! And it cracked me up when she said “your child’s vomit.”

  • http://www.shelibells.blogspot.com shellibells

    Heather, I didn’t wanna read all 477 comments from yesterdays pic but I wanted to say I love the color of your hair in “through the looking glass”
    Also, your post about the corn dog on a stick had me laughing hysterically to the point I had that dry uncontrollable cough for at least 1/2 hr. Thank you for that!

  • Flanella Washington

    I just read a fashionating article in Business Weeks at my hairdressers business. I learned about blogging. (I never knew before, but had herd the word)

    I read it while I was waiting to have my hair did, but I let the lady go in front of me because it was so ineterestin.

    This is my first time to ever and I mean Ever post a blog before, so I hope you welcomes me.
