The word “Nostalgia” comes from the Greek “gnos” meaning “to know,” and “algan” meaning “the theme song to every Nickelodeon cartoon.”

Or something.

I don’t know, I’m not a linguist, all I know is that because of my age, the word “nostalgia” immediately calls to mind an absolute flood of 90’s pop culture and forgotten detritus. Bright neon colored everything and a myriad of high-tech toys that very nearly worked. It’s quite a world to get lost in anew, from time to time.

You can join me on such a journey right now with these twelve 90’s throwback memes!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go see if they still sell those frozen popsicle tubes that would cut up your mouth. I needs me a summer treat.
