Well… since I’ve been “on Sabbatical” it’s been a miserably chilly damp last month here at “La Casa de Neko”, but finally it seems we’re going to get some well deserved warm weather for a change. Yay for that! 😉 Along with that burst of warmth, my sweetie and I have started getting out more for walks and the like as part of Carolyn’s plans to drive away those nasty “blaaahhhs” I’ve been saddled with lately. So it was no surprise that she decided we needed a proper trip to the movies for a change of pace. What to watch? Well, this time out it was my turn to learn one of my dear Carolyn’s childhood secrets… You see, way back in the day all the while lil’ Miyuki was busy playing “Jungle Explorer” or “Kung Fu Princess” she, on the other hand, was secretly smitten with Linda Carter and her own girlish dreams of being a certain Butt-kicking Amazon Princess. 😉
Oh yes… you’d never guess it, seeing her now, but it seems my adorably well grounded, very straight-laced, very sensible and no-nonsense Carolyn apparently had a few of her own silly girlish fantasies waaay back in the day. Unlike goofy lil’ me, she usually kept all that really quiet around most people, but one thing that grabbed her imagination and wouldn’t let go was the old TV series, “The Adventures of Wonder Woman”. According to Carolyn when she was 5 or 6 she spent several Halloween’s dressed up in her very own red, yellow, and blue costume complete with a long black wig, little tiara, and “magical” golden lasso (actually a length of bright neon yellow plastic clothesline she swiped from a neighbor’s backyard…) collecting her candy and dreaming of deflecting bullets with her bracelets and soundly whomping the living snot out of Nazi thugs and the like. OMG!! How I soooooo wish she’d saved some pictures of from back then!!
Given that, even if Superheroes really aren’t usually my thing, there really was no question of choice when we decided upon a nice Saturday afternoon matinée together. Afterall… this lil’ Catgirl is all about Female Empowerment and indulging in a little nostalgic game of “remember when” with my special angel is just the icing on the cake. 😉
So… how was it? Did it bring back and fond memories for my loving wife, maybe reawaken her desires to be an Amazon warrior all over again? Guess you’ll have to “Read On” and find out, now won’t you? 😉
Psst! This way for more!
