- Toys- I've seen toys lately that are cool but I still wish I had some of my old ones!
- Cartoons- I used to love watching cartoons well into my teens but the stuff on today is just awful!
- Celebrities- Way back when, celebrities were respected and didn't have to do all the crazy stuff they do nowadays to get attention.
- Disney movies- I haven't seen a decent animated movie since Tarzan and I don't count that computerized stuff as animated.
- TV shows- I used to watch TV with my grandmother and we'd both be able to enjoy the shows like Family Matters and Disney's Gummi Bears or even when I was growing up with the X-Files, Buffy, etc.
- Music to an extent- There are still some good stuff now but I find I listen to a lot of "oldies" too.
- Cereal- There just seems like there was more variety when I was a kid
- Doritoes- I've always loved the regular cheese kind until they started putting more pepper or something in and now I can't eat them.
- Things were cheaper-maybe it's just me but things used to be a whole lot cheaper and I'm not just talking about gas either.
- Fear- Everyone is more afraid now than they used to be. Some parents won't even let their kids play outside without parental supervision (meaning the parent looms over the kids the entire time) and I mean 7 and up too. We live in such a crazy, scared world now.

As many of you know, I'm a fan of all things that pre-date the last 10-15 years so this was an easy list for me. There are just so many things that were better back then (of course they didn't have the technology we do now so I guess it balances out somehow)!
