Your Childhood

Postby baklash 1337 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 1:09 pm

Hey, I thought it would be cool if we could all compare our favorite things from our childhood...so yeah...

Here I go.

Favorite Toys
Legos - I can't remember how many times I made Road Warrior-like cars and misfit mercenaries driving them to end each other's demise :lol:

TYCO Hot Rocker - Okay, this thing was pretty badass. It was an r/c car that had rails on the top of it so that it would land right-side-up whenever you popped wheelies. It was fun until it broke :cry:

Bobby's World
Spiderman

Favorite Games
Spurs
Monopoly
Wolfenstein 3D and Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Hell yeah! Legos are awesome. My favorite were the Star Wars series. I think I liked them because they were the biggest sets and took me the longest to build. Vikings were also pretty cool. Those got more mileage as far as the "play with it after it's built" category goes. I remember in 5th grade my friends and I played with legos all the time in school. Our teacher had some, but we decided to bring in the cool stuff from home. One of my friends stole my coolest minifigure, and a week later he called me, literally in tears, about how sorry he was. :lol: I never got it back though.

Playmobile was another favorite of mine. That was more when I was really little. My neighbor and I would take a bunch of figures and take turns acting out stories about them. I couldn't tell you what they were about. Of course, when I got older they turned into stories about planes crashing or castles getting seized.

I didn't really start gaming until about 7th grade (fall of 07) so a lot of that nostalgia gets lost on me. I was more into Arther than Mario.

Favorite Toys
- Stuffed animals. No barbies or anything really girly girly. If parents ever bought me anything, it was from the swapmeet (AKA $0.50 toys) or it was some hand me down from my brother
- Books. Because I was more or less forbidden to do anything fun or anything that would involve not being under house arrest, I read whatever I could.

Favorite TV Shows
Like faden, I was not allowed to watch TV. In fact, the TV was locked up somewhere in the garage until high school. If I somehow got to watch TV, I think favorite shows were "Amazing Adventures of Spiderman" and Batman.

Favorite Games
- Monopoly board game...which was bought at a yard sale and half the pieces were missing including parts of the cardboard box. But, because my parents did not believe in social interaction, I loved to play the game whenever I DID somehow have someone over so that they they would play with me for hours upon hours upon hours because Monopoly is a game that can't ever really end too quickly with just 2 players.
- Didn't have a computer until I was in high school. Our internet connection (remember 14k modems?) was so bad, that the only real game I could play was probably Solitaire...

Favorite Food
CHEEZ-ITS
Twix bars
Dumplings
Lasagna/Italian food

2-3 stars

Really wasn't much of a childhood. Most of it involved just studying all the time and being at home. No television, no telephone, no car. Not allowed to go out, not allowed to have friends, not allowed to even really exercise, unless it was in the backyard. Not allowed to go to the library, movies, next door, biking....Sure, pretty boring at times, but it was just really **** lonely.

Gawd, you kids are spoiled these days.
i do, i do emergere dal fondo per lottare e poi
salire in alto più che mai
i do, i do guardare nel futuro e sorridere
con una nuova identit�
