How old does a picture have to be for Throwback Thursday consideration?

At least 2 weeks, otherwise it’s just a latergram. Duh.

I’d say at least 6 months, though the older and more embarrassing the better.

I think in general, it has to be a picture that brings some sort of nostalgia to the parties involved and that could depend on life event that occur between when the photo was taken and now and the age of the photo’s owner. I would think that younger people would feel nostalgia at a shorter time interval and as age increase so does the length of time the photo needs to be before nostalgia hits.

I don’t think there’s a limit. You can #TBT to last weekend and make it look 20 years old. Thank you, Instagram.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Willy Wonka Candy is Dandy

Did you consume more candy or alcohol this weekend?

I was visiting the best school in America (ASU, Go Sun Devils!) so what do you think? The only candy I saw this weekend was the candy I got hit with at the homecoming parade.

Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker, my friend

Although I consumed a ridiculous amount of candy (you can’t just leave a full bowl of candy and NOT expect me to eat most of it), I also drank a lot. So depends on the unit of measure your using, by volume it would have to be alcohol, by calories it probably candy and if we are comparing my drunk state versus my sugar high then its about even. My body hates me right now.

I think I settled in at a nice 3:1/Alcohol:Candy ratio. My liver was not happy come Monday morning, but I won a costume contest, so my brain was doing alright.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Pat Quinn ad

How excited are to know those horrible negative political ads won’t be ruining your shows anymore?

 

Kim with the rings

Kim P.

I rarely watch live television (thank goodness for DVRs) so I didn’t really notice the political ads because I skip commercials.

 
 
 

Ashley B.

Ashley B.

Good lord, so excited. They are like the antithesis of infomercials. Instead being entertained and pacified into consuming someone else’s crap, I am annoyed and enraged into consuming someone else’s crap.

Attack ads are my favorite! Am I the only one that thinks ominous music is soothing? I can probably sleep to it.

I don’t have cable, but I do have Hulu Plus, and as such, was forced to watch Bruce Rauner’s wife tell me over and over again that he’s not socially conservative; because of this, I am now PRETTY sure Republicans don’t have Hulu Plus. Free marketing tip?

 
 
 
 
 
 

Socks and Sandals

Which makes you more thankful shoes or socks?

 

Kim with the rings

Kim P.

Shoes. No one sees your socks and you can’t wear them with flip flops. Sorry socks, but you just aren’t as cute as shoes.

Shoes. Ever step into a wet puddle wearing just a sock? Yick…

 
 
 
 

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Shoes.. The fact that I can walk outside and not have to worry much on what I am stepping on is a big advantage that you can’t do with just socks. Although I do remember that a participant at the triathlon running barefoot, so I guess he is the lucky few that doesn’t care too much of either.

Shoes. Always shoes. Shoes forever. Shoes 2016.
