"Kid Stuff"

Exercise #15: "Kid Stuff"
Make a list of toys you had when you were a kid. Then, in the time remaining, give each one an adjective, a color, and a sound.

"Soft Classics," the stuffed dog whose brand name was Soft Classics. I read the tag and thought that was his name. Soft, grey, puppy panting.
Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. Depressed, blue, velcro ripping (his tail ripped off).
Bernard from Where the Wild Things Are. Matted fur (After being thrown into the washer so many times, his fur was never the same.), grey, animal growls.
Skip-It, the fun ankle game thingy. Entertaining, pink, plastic rolling against concrete.
Barbies. Irrational (I mean, seriously... No woman looks like that.), tan, giggles and scissor clipping (My sister and I frequently chopped the hair of our dolls in a futile attempt to style their hair.).

That's all I can think of at any rate. I mean, I had lots of toys, but there were a few of them that I absolutely loved. The main three were Soft Classics, Eeyore, and Bernard. I remember walking around the house with Soft Classics nearly glued to my hand. My dad gave him to me when I was little, when I had the chicken pocks. I remember lying on the couch, watching tv. When dad came home, he walked up to me, taking something out of a bag. And there was this fuzzy, grey, stuffed puppy. I loved him instantly. Even then I had a strong interest in animals - dogs specifically - so I was very excited. The sad part is that I can't find him anymore. I went away to school or camp or something, and when I came back Soft Classics was nowhere to be found. Sad day. I secretly think that he's hidden somewhere in my parents' house, hiding until they move out or something. Even today I miss him. He was great.

Well, that's it for my trip down Nostalgia Lane. I won't bore you any longer. :)

Peace and see you tomorrow!

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
