Anyway, I have this funny comfort thing when I am not feeling well where I want to indulge in my favorite childhood delights. This is the time when I would be likely to watch a Dinsey movie, She-Ra, My Little Pony: The Movie, The Muppets, or Gen 13. Yes I own all of those and quite a few Disney movies. Maybe this it why I kept watching youtube videos of Carlton dancing on the Fresh Prince of Bell Air. I am going to probably indulge in the new Jem DVD as well.
Today, however, while shopping for a better over the counter cold and flu med I wandered into the toy section. I keep checking out Swinkies and wanting to pick up a pack, but I am afraid if I start I am going to want more so I haven't yet. Instead I picked up two My Little Ponies. I loved My Little Ponies growing up. Loved them! Especially the baby ponies and the two I picked up today are about the same size as the vintage baby ponies. I picked up Fluttershy because I have a love affair with the color yellow. I also picked up Cupcake. One of my best friend's nicknames is Cupcake. It's a family nickname and together we make Cupcake and Sunshine. Anything labeled Cupcake or with a Cupcake just brings a smile to my face. Except white Cupcake Wines... they are not so good.
My two new ponies have totally brought a smile to my face after a long day of work and dealing with some personal issues on top of being crazy sick. I think I might just get a few more... I mean unlike Swinkies they come in sets of 6 or 8 which I think is very manageable.
For you viewing pleasure a clip from my favorite childhood show. I have to thank Hannah for subliminally bringing ponies back into my personal limelight.
