childhood Toys R Us

I just had this memory flash of something from my childhood. For some reason I thought of the old old Toys R Us, the very back wall. I don’t remember what was there, wooden puzzles? Board games? Books? Something sort of boxy and flat like that. I seriously had not thought of that since … since the last time I saw that, I guess.

Now I remember the video/books section. I guess that’s what it was. Mostly I just remember the time we wanted to buy the Rugrats Christmas video (“The Santa Experience”).

I don’t know, it was just weird. There I was, working on a layout, and then flash, old Toys R Us. Trippy.

The Rugrats all growed up

I watched the special last night. I agonized through Fairly Oddparents. What happened anyway? ^_^;; It’s playing again tonight. I wish I could get over my problem and start taping stuff again. Maybe they’ll sell the special commercially, and I’ll buy it.

I thought it was so cool!! Emica, part of the plot, was weird, I think, but then again, so are most trends and all them doodads. At first it was so strange, I couldn’t get used to it, and kept laughing/smiling during the first ten minutes or so of their growed up appearance. They won’t embellish more on this, I assume. It’d beat the whole idea of the show, babies. Even though growing up ten years is cool and kinda expected, it won’t become the center of the show. And that last thought was directed toward me. ^.^;;; I keep telling myself that, but it doesn’t really work.

Angelica: She seemed herself, but the end was a turnaround. Maybe she’s maturing. But then again, at the concert she was herself. :b

Tommy: I don’t really believe he’d do that, but then again, maybe he’s also being a regular kid. He’s still Tommy through and through. ^u^

Chuckie: A little different, I guess. But still the same.

Phil: Hm, I like how he was the “remember when” person. I didn’t know he was that kind of guy. But someone had to do it, I guess.

Lil: Herself

Susie: HA haha, I love Susie growed up. She’s so cool. But that part where she was babysitting Tommy, I didn’t think she’d be the kind of person to sit in front of the TV and eat from the fridge. At least she wasn’t on the phone. But all her friends were at the concert, so I don’t know. Or maybe Tommy said he wanted to be alone … don’t know.

Dil: Wow, he’s so weird. I guess Baby Dil didn’t have much of a normal personality, so they could do whatever they wanted to him to fit the plot.

Kimi: Didn’t show much of her. Why not? I guess you could say she fit her mold.

Parents: I don’t know, the same. ^_^; Still use Lipshitz. blech, however his name is spelled. Drew and Cynthia weren’t showed much. Betty was her pushover self. Chaz was kinda not shown, I guess he’s the same. Why didn’t they show the rest?

Spike: Wahhhh!!! Spike’s old and fat and gray!!! I could hurt Tommy for making him suffer like that. All that bacon. *shudder*

Someone (forgot who) said there’s a possibility for a 25th anniversary thing … O.o I don’t really believe that. Somehow, I don’t think Rugrats will last that long. I don’t know why, and I hope I’m wrong, I hope it goes on just like it is and becomes a legend, or something, but even so…

Well, still babies after all these years!

God, gays; hot weather; cartoons

Thoughts collected throughout the day.

How can anyone say God hates gays??? ;_; I don’t think God hates anyone except for the ones who blaspheme against Him. I mean, come on, I don’t hate people who do things I don’t like. I hate people who…well, I don’t really hate anyone. I guess I’d hate someone who blasphemed (umm, sp?) against me. Like a rapist, or robber, or something. ^_^;; In the beginning, anyway.

Then I went to godhatesfags.com (how can anyone use slurs, also? there’s such meanness behind it? *koff* there’s my answer ^_^;;) to find a passage saying God hates gays. There wasn’t one, really. I suppose I didn’t look hard enough, but I didn’t want to. I do believe that gays get to heaven in the end. But I don’t want to go deeply into that…heaven and all that is tricky, indeed.

Earlier today, it was so hot!! Well, maybe around 80 or 85 degrees F. ^_^;; But I was upstairs…wearing leggings…with one window open. And no, our house doesn’t need air conditioning. We just need to know the location of the sun and we open/close windows accordingly. But this room is the hottest during the hottest part of the day, number one because one side gets direct hit from the sun, and number two because only one window can be open because of that, and if I wanted circulation, I’d have to drag the fan up here and find something for it to stand on. Too much work.

I watched Walt Disney’s Snow White. The animation was a bit choppier than I remember, but that may be wear and tear, or something, I don’t know. But the fluidity and beauty was a lot, a lot, better than I remember. ^u^ Of course, Prince Charming was bland as usual, and the seven dwarves were entertaining, and Snow White was her innocent, domestic self. The Queen was all cool, though, with her cape, and dress. *drool* Gimme one of those! Man, even her old lady cape looked cooler than Snow White’s dress. The movie was also very spooky. I mean, the backgrounds, and everything, were very visual, and you felt the heightened tension. Well, I did at least. ^_^;;

Then before and during dinner I watched Disney’s version of Beauty and the Beast. I guess it was okay. Some of it was beautiful, but not so much as Pocahontas. *^_^* My fave Disney movie, sadly. I liked Belle’s dresses okay. *rolleyes* It’s all about the clothes. Her ballgown was a bit…tacky, or frilly, or something. Take that overgrown fringe off, dengit! It’s so weird. Ooh, I liked the way they designed the title.

Then I watched Rugrats, an episode I never saw before, and I saw only the second episode, Miss Manners (which I thought was very much so Rugrats) because I was watching the end of Ghostbusters II, and found out the people who play Ray and Igon were the writers. Wow. ^_^; Then I watched the first ep of the Fairly Oddparents. Kinda boring and stupid, but I sorta like those past/future jokes. Bill Gates named his idea Timmysomething, and Timmy’s name was Internet.

Then today I watched an ep of Digimon I’d taped over when I taped the first new ep of Card Captors. And I’d never seen it before. Stupid me. Well anyway, I saw it, and it was cool. I like Sora more, anyway. ^.^

Then I put in Anastasia, the animated FOX version, and fell in love with it again. I love her dresses. Except for that one where sections were cut away and scraps were sewn in. *shudder* Strange. Hmm, It was like, “Oh, just listen to Dmitri and go see Anya!!!” all over again. Teehee.
