The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

80's Cartoon Nostalgia, Thanks Facebook Invasion of Memories

If you are on Facebook, you of course have noticed the current persuasion to switch your profile picture to a cartoon character from childhood.  If you are like me, your news feed is jammed with notes encouraging you to participate in this toon explosion in support of the fight against child violence.  

I've actually had a lot of fun with this and totally got wrapped up in the nostalgia (and the whole stopping child violence campaign too, of course...). 

I started with this
Which was perhaps cheating
... but totally awesome...

Then after a brief dip into the nauseating cuteness of the Muppet Babies (so as to satisfy the 'cartoon' element meanwhile holding true to my Muppet loyalties), I have finally settled on this

Although a different 'machine' this is certainly a machine I can identify with, having been told on more than one occasion that if my nursing career ever fails, I can always get a job as a typewriter due to my anally retentive neat (read: legible)  handwriting.

In the midst of my cartoon pondering and decisive indecisiveness, I got a little Andrea-esque carried away.  And consequently, you lucky people get to reap the benefits. 

You can thank me later, which I am sure you will be sure to do, of course.


What cartoon character is nostalgic for you?

I loved Foghorn Leghorn, always after the widowed hen. I loved his sayings and wisecracks... "Now cut that out boy, or I'll spank you where the feathers are thinnest". hehe!
