I can't help but disagree with you on this...applying arbitrary taboos on certain words for no reason other than some outdated fear of talking about sex is ridiculous. The sooner we get past this kind of thing the better.

Well then, I miss a time when people had a sense of decency and propriety. Hey, say whatever you want, but maybe not in front of children and old folks, OK?

I did that a few times (granted, that was because we were dropped off at our babysitters at like 6 in the morning).

But... it doesent compare with getting up at 2 in the morning, shuffling the door to get the lock off (no easy task), sneaking like a church mouse with nine years of stealth training to the living room, and then proceeding to watch, in nothing but your underwear, cartoons (and, in later years, super nintendo). With maybe a bowl of overmilked cereal.

At the age of 7, no less.

There is no such thing as over milked cereal.
I can put my hands in my head, and I can laugh it in the face.

Fix'd.

I like nothing more than a big bowl of Cocoa Pebbles and half a cup of milk.

Life Cereal without milk is pretty tasty.

My parents would never allow us fruit loops when I was a kid.

I only had them a handful of times when I was at the sitters or my grandparents or by trading on the school yard.

My parents never let me have them either. Which is one of the many reasons I liked going to camp: all the fruit loops I wanted. I could have them now too, but my preferences have changed to more along the lines of bacon and eggs for breakfast.

My breakfast is (on the days I'm up in the morning) a can of bawls and a cookie.

For some reason they did buy us Sugar Crisps once in a while.

The coffee kind of cereal.

I was never allowed Fruit Loops as a child, except I got one (1) box at my birthday.

Which is why I eat them now.

If I bought cereal, which I never do, I would pretty much only buy fruit loops.

This. We only ever got (and still only get) Cheerios and Wheaties, occasionally some Chex, and about once a year we'll get a box of Apple Jacks. Going away to camp meant as many bowls of fruit loops in the morning as I desired, and all of the croutons in the world to snack on, all afternoon.

As someone mentioned before, I really like the sound of a dial-up connection getting started. It's a really comforting and nostalgic thing, the same way I feel about smooth jazz in the evenings. I miss that.

Also I wanted to note that this is the first thread in recent memory - outside of debate/argument threads - that really made me stop and think for awhile. Kudos. I am appoint.

I miss when you spent every moment of recess making a snowball bigger than you and then spent after school cementing it in place with spray-bottles so that the stupid younger kids didn't steal the hallmark of your snowfort.

I remember when the Disney channel was a premium channel you had to call the cable company for, and Nickelodeon had unique ideas, not Disney channel ripoffs.
