My challenge for today’s word – toys – wasn’t in finding them. It was in choosing the ones that would make the cut. We see plenty of Star Wars action up in here, so let me introduce you to two of the loves that grace my work desk.
First, meet Kim Possible.
In my college years – okay, okay, I was out of college by then – I had a crush on her. She was so kick-ass. (I eventually graduated to Veronica Mars.) Kim has twisty arms and legs and magnetic hands and feet that I kept dangerously close to my computer monitor.
Next, meet my noisy dinosaur.
Kick-ass dinosaurs don’t need cutesy names. Grace gave me this dude for Father’s Day. He closest resembles the megalosaurus. Pull a lever on his back and he emits a bone-chilling roar. I let ‘er rip during work today and I’m not sure what was thought of me.
