I bet you guys know by now that I'm studying for the bar exam.
I have a full-length timed MBE to take today. Which means I get three hours for 100 questions, an hour break, then three hours for another 100 questions. It doesn't sound like I'd be short on time until you realize the questions look like this:
It makes me shudder just thinking about it.
However, I'm drinking my coffee out of my lucky Fozzie Bear cup, so I think I'll do okay.
*Note: Fozzie was my favorite. When I was little I used to tell jokes and then say "Wokka wokka!" at the end. Because I was the most bitchingest child you'd ever met. Naturally.
I haven't really left the house very much in the past few weeks, nor do I anticipate leaving much in the next four. When you're essentially on a self-imposed house arrest in the quest of law and licesure, you'll end up doing just about anything to make yourself happy.
Which means watching cartoons from my childhood.
I know that it'll make me sound like a geezer in a rocking chair, talking about how alllll if this used to be orange groves, but when I say that they don't make cartoons like this anymore, I mean it. Dora can't hold a candle to David the Gnome. Sorry, girl.
Anyway, to make y'alls Friday as happy as I've made my own, I wanted to share with you some of the best children's shows in the whole wide world.
I loved these guys!! On some of the intros, the puppets in the back get thrown up in the air and do flips.
Those were my favorites.
McDonald's did a promo with these in which they were in little cars made of food. Mom got Happy Meal after Happy Meal so that I could get all of them.
And for you naysayers, I actually still have them!
I always wanted to see Dr. Claw's face.
I'll go to my grave unsatisfied.
Admittedly, I saw Muppet Babies before I ever saw The Muppets.
Leading me to believe that The Muppets was a huge knock-off hack job of Muppet Babies.
I love me.
Also, my problem with Dr. Claw? Same with Nanny.
Disappointment was plentiful.
Like never knowing what Charlie looked like.
I didn't realize until recently that not everyone watched Gummi Bears.
I, however, had a Gummi Bears school folder.
(that I still have)
I may or not also sing this song to Louie sometimes.
I challenge anyone who's heard this song even once before to try not to sing along. You know you want to.
I betcha it's not that easy to dive into a huge vault of coins, though.
David the Gnome.
This was the moral compass of a young baby Ty. David always knew what to do. I grew up thinking I could ride a fox. To me, David the Gnome was perfect.
Until the last show, when he and his wife died and turned into trees and Swift watched and CRIED the whole time.
WHY would you do that to a kid????
(WHY would you do that to an overly-emotional almost 29 year old??)
I can't even bring myself to embed that scene, but if you have about five minutes to watch it and susequently compose yourself, here it is.
Jem and the Holograms
Boy, oh boy, did I want to be Jem.
My mom used to buy me Dress & Dazzle dress-up clothes. Typically, they came with these huge gaudy plastic clip-on earrings. I'd put them on and touch my ear like Jem did.
Apparently, though, the earrings don't do much when you don't have Synergy, the holographic computer.
Yes, I really did watch all of these this morning. Plus Rescue Rangers, Tail Spin, and a couple others. It honest-to-goodness started my day with a smile, though, so I wanted to pass them along!
Did I miss anything huge?
Happy Friday, y'all!
*PS: go see Lia for some goodies :)
