Haylee Says…Nostalgia Be Craze-y!

My blogging birthday twin was kind enough to ask me to guest post – and as we both like a bit of nostalgia, I was happy to oblige! Hope you enjoy this trip down a craze-y memory lane!

Nostalgia be Craze-y!

Do you know your Bulbasaur from your Beedrill? Your Charmander from your Clefairy? Do you even care?

Possibly not. But if you’ve succumbed to the craze that swept the smartphone world this summer, (hmmm… that would be me!) then you’ll know I’m talking about Pokemon Go.

From toddlers to pensioners, players avidly stared at their screens in the hope of capturing a virtual monster. However, the tech may have progressed but crazes are nothing new – we little humans love to indulge in pointless collections and activities for no other reason than our friends are doing it (FOMO anyone?)

So join me now as I look back through rose-tinted nostalgia specs and revisit some of the crazes of my 80s and 90s youth, whether I wore it, played it or collected it…

PLAYGROUND: POGS AND TAZOS

I’ll fully admit that although I had some POGS, I never…

Before I head into review-ville…

Happy Yorkshire Day everyone!

Yes, the 1st of August celebrates all things Yorkshire, the largest (and greatest!) county in the UK, apparently full of no nonsense grafters who single-handedly won the Olympics in 2012. (I’m obviously biased, having occupied a small area of this county all my life and very proud I am to be a good Yorkshire lass!) 😉


Reviews

Okay, on with the post! I’d thought I’d been lacking in the TV and Film category of late (I may have to rename it), so today I bring you a selection of 5 reviews: A film, a series, a book, a show and a game. I’m no expert / critic, so these are merely my own opinions on things I’ve enjoyed over the last few weeks or days.

Oh hai there!

If, based on the title quote, you’re reading this hoping it’ll be about the cult ‘romantic drama’ The Room, where fans pay homage to its awfulness by throwing around plastic cutlery, you’ll be sorely disappointed. There will be no spoon chucking in my posts!

In fact, I’ve not even seen the film, despite S suggesting we watch it on more than one occasion, along with other cult ‘so bad they’re good’ movies, such as Birdemic and Sharknado*. But you might as well carry on reading anyway, because, well you’re here now!

So what is this post about? Well, as it’s Fadtastic Friday, I thought I’d share a new-ish and so far fairly unfulfilled fad of mine. Want to feel under intense pressure to be incredibly intelligent whilst racing against time? Want to pretend you’re Jack Bauer and feel like you’re saving the world? Want to do all this as you’re locked in a room with no visible way out? Then let’s talk about LIVE ESCAPE PUZZLE ROOMS! They’re all kinds of fun 😀
