alisonism #6: "All the world is waiting for you and the powers you possess..."

As you may have guessed from my last post, I love Wonder Woman.
She's my favorite superhero.
In fact, yesterday when we were at our neighbors' house trying out the wife's harp, I made a reference to Wonder Woman.  It couldn't be helped; the stuff I was playing just sounded like music you would hear while walking around on Paradise Island.
One of my favorite episodes is when Steve takes Wonder Woman to the place where they make money. I always thought that was so cool.
I also really like the one where the bad guy always rubs her hands together and then makes weird, supernatural things happen.
I think it's fun when she uses all of her sweet tools to fight the bad guys, even though some people have told me that they're actually lame tools.  I disagree.  Who wouldn't want to jump like that?
And chloroform - I think the writers must've been obsessed with that stuff.  That's like, the only way you can defeat Wonder Woman, is to use chloroform.  And believe me, they used that stuff a lot.
I have many memories of running home from school when we lived in Iowa so that we would get home in time to watch "Wonder Woman" on television at 3:00.  All my siblings loved it.  And then we got "too obsessed" with it and were banned, no longer allowed to watch "Wonder Woman."  Needless to say (that was for you, Carrie), we stopped running home after school.  We had one or two episodes that we had taped, but remembered every time we really wanted to watch one that someone had taped over them...  That mystery has yet to be solved.
But then, last Christmas (maybe the year before?) Brooke got the first season on DVD from Santa Clause!  We watched a lot of "Wonder Woman" that break.  It was awesome.

Get us out from under, Wonder Woman!

Too much of a good thing. What a good mother to ground you from something that got out of control! I guess she knew how important it is to have moderation in all things. You should try thanking her one day for teaching you such a valuable lesson!

haha! That's funny...I also believe that a reference was made to Wonder Woman during the Sync Up game. Am I right? :)

Mom - I still don't think you should've banned it. Sorry. :)
Lauren - It was during Sync Up!
Carrie - Thanks! I think it's pretty awesome. And also, we got this really sweet new game you should come play! It's super fun. And... I'm still not done with HP4...
