Oh, Nostalgia!

I've got nothing deep to say about nostalgia—I'll let Dennis and others handle that—but I do want to alert you to this article about—drumroll, please!—the Easy Bake Oven! Yes! I know! I love(d) it too! And here it is in all its glory:

Sure, Easy Bake cakes were not always edible, but, hey, lots of cakes aren't! The oven is a more sublime experience than that, providing true Nourishment. 

And, guess what: turns out, boys like the Easy Bake Oven too. Yep. It's all in the article. And lest you think the Oven has gone by the wayside, be assured that it has not. You may purchase one even today. 

Finally, this post would not be complete without a shout-out to MA student SJ Stout who, under my, um, direction, wrote a fascinating essay about log flumes (!) and lyric poetry (!) and who is now deep into nostalgia. SJ, I hope this post will service as the help I promised you.
