Flashback to 1976...Plus some other rambling thoughts
I usually don't get too excited about new television shows (I only have limited time to watch television for myself, so my excitement is usually reserved for "regulars" that I've somehow gotten attached to. I.e.: "Heroes" and "Lost." Other than those few shows, I pretty much use my television exclusively for sports or for the girls to watch the culture-ruling Disney Channel). I did decide, though, that I wanted to give the newly-updated "Bionic Woman" a chance. I tuned in last night and actually enjoyed it (although I doubt if it will be a "must see" tv event for me every week).
If you are a child of the 70s like me (I was born in 68, so most of my childhood was spent in the 70s) then you can probably guess why I wanted to watch "The Bionic Woman."
Yes, I was having flashbacks to the days when I owned this...
I LOVED my Bionic Woman doll!!! She was bigger than my Barbie dolls, so she could pretty much lord over them Amazon-style. She had the really cool flap on her arm that revealed the robotics underneath. And I pretty much played with her non-stop for several years! (I also pretended that I was Bionic Woman--when I wasn't a Charlies Angel or Wonder Woman--at recess many, many times!)
So...it was nice to have a little flashback to the 70s. (And I even tried to explain to Delaney last night how the "real" Bionic Woman used to use her super-powers; how it would go in slow motion when she would get ready to jump up really high, or how the camera would focus in on her ear and the funky sound would start beeping when she was using her super hearing; I guess that my reminisces didn't quite match up to the super-special-effects of this new, 2007 version!).
Did any of you love Bionic Woman too?
And a few other random thoughts this morning...
~ I am updating my Blog Roll. Gary showed me last night how Blogger has a new template that makes adding things to your blog SO much easier than ever before. My blog roll had been wiped out somehow in the past, but the new template makes it super easy to update. So, I'm trying to get all my new Blog Friends on my list. If you don't see your name, be patient because I have a LONG list to get through!!
~ I killed my cell phone AGAIN!! I am the world's worst when it comes to cell phones. I've lost them, misplaced them, and drowned them in the past and now my newest one has succumbed to my kiling spree.
~ Homecoming Week for our high school has been SO much fun!!!! McKenna--who has a ton of school spirit and just loves getting involved with anything and everything--has dressed up everyday in their Spirit Week costumes and even attempted to go "rolling"the other night. (You should go read Gary's version of it on his Wednesday post. SO funny!!). I have been taking pictures all week to document all the festivities and will share with you tomorrow sometime!
Hope you all have a GREAT Thursday!!!!!!
