Before I get started, permit me this outburst:
OH MY GOD I GOT 99 HITS YESTERDAY. NINETY-NINE. BEST. DAY. EVER! Also my total hits are OVER NINE THOUSAND. (Over eleven thousand, actually!) If I had some money, I’d buy everyone who reads this thing a drink. But alas, I am one broke-ass bitch. So instead, have a new post!
9. TMNT 25th Anniversary Figures
When I was a kid, I was all over those pizza-scarfing ninja-fighting turtles. I got up to watch the cartoon every Saturday, I watched the first two movies so many times that I memorized them, but I never got to have any of the toys! I guess I never thought to ask for these action figures, thinking that my parents probably wouldn’t have bought them for me anyway because I was a little girl. I actually didn’t have much Turtles merchandise at all, come to think of it. But now that I’m a big girl, I have the opportunity to buy whatever I want within reason, and these suckers look exactly like the old ones! Joy!
My favorite Turtle when I was a kid was Michelangelo, because he was the “funny” one, and I was all about the funny back in those days. But later on, I started to really like Donatello. He’s smart, nerdy, and kind of a goofball. I married a guy who is smart, nerdy, and kind of a goofball, so…yeah.
10. A Turntable
I would love to own a turntable, so that I can play any weird old records I happen to come across in junk shops. Some of you might remember me having found copies of Mickey Mouse Disco and Sesame Street Fever on vinyl, but I didn’t buy them. I hoped that I would not come to regret that decision, but I have.
Anyway, some might say that I’m too young to remember vinyl. Those people would be 100% wrong. My grandmama had one of those big cabinet stereos, and I would listen to records on it all the time. If it were up to me, I would have that very stereo in my house right now. But it ended up in my sister’s house with her 87 dogs, 40 cats and three boys, so it’s toast.
So yeah, I have some pretty fond memories of records, and even though I’m not a big vinyl enthusiast, I would like to own some. You know, for posterity.
That’s all for now, folks. I tried to come up with a third item, but…I got nothing. So how about a survey: Least favorite Ninja Turtle and why?
