Ahh, the Tamagotchi. The Tamagotchi was the useless app you didn’t need way before Apple was producing useless apps that you didn’t need. Many people would say that Tamagotchi was Japanese for “Friend.” If you were told that, you were lied to. It means egg, which is just as uncreative a name as friend. I did have a Tamagotchi, but my favorite part was ignoring it until the egg was filled with its poop. Then it would die. HA.
Today we will combine our jersey segments with our Advent calendar. Because Christmas is all about giving and taking and all that crap. So what exactly makes this a Christmas special? Mountains. Snowy mountains. Just looking at the Stockton and Malone era Utah Jazz gives you that comfy feeling of being in a log cabin with a fire place on the side. I mean the purple kind of kills that wintery theme, but not enough to take me away from being comfy. Even the little belt on the shorts looks like a snowflake.
Hopefully I can find a much more Christmasy jersey for next week…..
Honestly…..F this thing. I’ll never understand why this creature was sold out all over the country. It’s creepy, it watches you sleep, and for some reason it continues talking even after you take the batteries out. I cant believe there was a time I wanted this for Christmas. One of my top regrets was saying “hey Santa, give me this bird-rat hybrid.” I must have been really bad that year, I would have preferred the lump of coal.
Every day until Christmas I will bring forth an image of a holiday special, a toy, or whatever else inspires me to think of a 90s Christmas. Just like an Advent calendar, but instead of candy or toys you get snarky comments about stuff from 15 years ago.
Yet where we shall begin is with a Rugrats Chanukah. Because in present time it is Chanukah. That’s my only reason. Anyway, the Rugrats specials were actually pretty educational, and if it wasn’t for this show I probably wouldn’t even be able to spell “Chanukah.” Seriously, I’m doing that without even using spell check.
To be honest though the Rugrats Passover stuck with me a lot more than the Chanukah episode. Something about Tommy as Moses parting the Red Sea really stuck with me. Truly inspirational.
