Time Travelling

This weekend I saw Transformers (more than meets the eye . . . robots in disguise). As I sat in a packed theater, I realized that this was one of those moments when you are equally an adult and yet still a child. I was excited, giddy, and maybe just maybe squealing a bit (but just a bit) as Optimus Prime transformed from a Big Rig into a robot.

It was like a quick trip back to my childhood when I sat transfixed in front of the television watching a cartoon that I believed deep in my heart could be real. I wanted a car that transformed into a robot, I wanted to live in Barbie's dream house, I wanted to live with Rainbow Brite and My Little Ponies or even the Care Bears, heck I wanted to be a Real American Hero (G.I. Joe).

I'm glad I don't take myself so seriously and let the kiddo inside me come out and play every once in a while.

Every once in a while? Puh...Lease. Haha. KT, you are always down for being a big kid. I can think back on numerous posts and actual first hand experiences. Do I need to remind you about the Yoga Ball incident at Jes' apartment?

Hi Katie! Haven't been here in some time!

This is one movie I have no desire to see...I was never into transformers, but my younger brother was. My best friend is simply dying to see this movie...I thought it would be a "guy" thing and am surprised at the number of girls who want to see the movie too. I guess I'm just not one of them.

By the power of Greysku-- uh, no, wait. That was He-Man.

I haven't seen The Transformers yet but I'm looking forward to it.
