i have strep throat, but i've mastered the four point Wonder Woman turn

Seriously?

Strep throat?

Really?

So all weekend long i had this ridiculous fever that kept me from doing things like getting my hair dyed pretty colors that aren't grey, checking out my friend's band, going grocery (or any other kind of) shopping, etc.

But you know what I did do? I discovered Wonder Woman full episodes on WB.com and watched the first half of season 2 in my feverish state.

It brought me back all of the amazingness that was my childhood heroine. God I love that Wonder Woman. I totally had the underoos, the large silver bracelets which were made of silver, but let's pretend it was feminum, mmmk?

I have to say I prefer seasons two and three over the first mostly because Diana has some great 70s fashions. She rocked that wrap dress - and only Linda Carter could really get away with those glasses.

But when was a turban ever a wise non-religious influenced fashion choice?

I have to say that all of these new web sites popping up with childhood classic shows are really bringing back some fond memories - and there are so many shows I've forgotten about. Like... Remington Steele, Fraggle Rock, Small Wonder....

Gosh I love the Internet.

Strep throat is the worst! I hope you are feeling better. Now I feel the need to get caught up on all those old Wonder Woman episodes. I have the first season on DVD, but you are right - the following seasons were way better.

I pretend to ride into my building at work on an invisible bike...and then I pretend that I wreck my bike into the desk in the front lobby...I think they are catching on that I am not really practicing my Mime skills as I have been telling them...

I still repel evil with my fists crossed in front of my face.

Remington Steele - Still delicious after all these years, if not better :)

"I still repel evil with my fists crossed in front of my face."
