whatever happened to … ?

These are the things that cross my mind as I stare out the Metro window …

Crystal Pepsi?


Pogo Ball?

Slap bracelets?

The TV show “Get a Life”

Natalie from “The Facts of Life”

Wesley from “Mr. Belvedere”

Taco-flavored Doritos

… I really should start sleeping more. Really, if you have answers, I’ll take them. If you wonder whatever happened to something, leave it here. Chances are, I don’t remember where I parked the car, but I know what happened to Ron Popeil.

    I liked Crystal Pepsi. I guess you were the other person who did too.

    The pog fad was over 15 minutes after it started. I do remember owning some Pulp Fiction pogs. I didn’t use them, I just thought they were odd.

    Pogo ball’s were for kids who couldn’t handle pogo sticks. There is a landfill full of those things somewhere. Rumor has it the pogo balls are on top of a layer of pogs.

    Slap bracelets were dangerous to society so they’ve been off the market. Though I did get one at a dollar store for my daughter. She was amused with it for about ten minutes.

    Get A Life was canceled in 1992 in it’s second season. I guess it couldn’t live up to the high standards of FOX back then.

    Natalie was awful! Oh man, the ‘funny’ one on Fact of Life. Anyway she is the voice of Velma on Scooby-Doo these days.

    Wesley was on a show last year called ‘I Hate My 30s’ which should have starred me. I never saw it though.

    And as for Taco flavored Doritos, I have no idea!

    Can you just ride to work with me from now on so I can just ask you? That’d be really handy.

    I get me an e-note that tells me I got a comment. I just happened to be checking my mail when it came. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Natalie was awesome. Whatever happened to New Coke, though? Not that I liked it, it’s just that it felt like Coke saved face by calling the old stuff Coca-Cola Classic instead of going back to plain old Coke. I remember years after it bombed I would still run into New Coke in convenience stores; maybe they were hoping for desperation, drunkeness or hurried shopping to work in their favour…

    I SWEAR that Coke Zero is just new Coke repackaged. Trust me.

    Booberry Crunch?

    Bridget Fonda?

    Evan Dando?

    Toaster Strudel?

    Arch Deluxe?


    Scott Wolf?

    Dan Cortese?

    Don’t say bad things about my Coke Zero. I even like their goofy ads, where Coke employees consult lawyers about whether they can sue Coke Zero for infringement of taste ๐Ÿ™‚

    Slap bracelets have now become slap koozies — marketing and pr groups use them all over the place now. Seriously — I see them everywhere! Kind of a neat take on the idea, yet annoying at the same time – SCORE!

    Glad you’re feeling better, btw ๐Ÿ˜‰
