nerd alert.

i really, really love(d) the 80s.  the movies, the television shows, the music... in my opinion, it was such a great decade (unlike the 90s -- i'm still recovering from that mess).  so maybe that's why i got so excited about these recent finds:

1. tube socks.

(note how the sock kinda bags on my gimpy right foot, in all its gimpy glory)

yes, in my heart of hearts, i wish i was a little boy from 1982 so i could wear short shorts and long tube socks everyday. i have been searching high and low for tube socks for years, and last week i found them in every color of the rainbow. they don't seem like they'd be that hard to find, but they've eluded me until now. i don't know why i love them. they are not flattering or cool. sometimes they remind me of that pbs math show, "it figures," and i secretly loved that show and would watch it when i was home sick from school. thank you youtube:




2. circus animal cookies.



talk about childhood memories. is it me, or did these guys disappear for a while? i don't even like them that much, but so much nostalgia pumped through my veins when i saw these little guys on the supermarket shelf that i had to pick them up and take them home with me. it'll prolly take us a year to finish the bag, so let me know if i can mail you a few.

I'm diggin' your socks. I only wish I looked as hot as you in 'em. I agree with the whole 80's & 90's thing. I did go to high school with you & as I recall you pulled off the 90's well. Nothing beat's 80's tv though. I miss PBS. I like books more then math so I was often indulged in Reading Rainbow.

I loved square four. For a while I was watching PBS everyday because that would be that only way to get my little boy to sleep.

Mail away my friend. Last month I polished off an entire bag in less than 48 hours, it can be done and I am not afraid.
