Maryellen News!



Originally posted on American Girl Doll News:

An hour ago, American Girl officially announced Maryellen, the doll from the 50’s. Her story is about how she follows her heart instead of the crowd- probably she’s not a sock hopper like we’ve imagined? The book cover looks like those “Grace Thomas Historical Doll” leaks from last year. We will show you.

The cover of her meet book. The cover of her meet book.

Last year's leaks. Last year’s leaks.

Maplelea Monday Australian Invasion (alternate title: spending my bonus chapter 5)


Saila doesn’t like Shiela.

A new friend has arrived to say G’day!

This is Emily.  Pictures follow.  It took her 7 days to get here from Australia (though she’s spent the last 2 or 3 chilling at the post office down the street).  I love her.  I think I’m going to change her name to Sheila because I already have a doll named Emily.  She came with boots and flipflops, and she has special toes to let her wear flipflops!  I also unbuttoned her top button for her closeup so you can see her vinyl breastplate.  This allows for her head to move in lots of directions, and it will make tanktops and swimsuits look prettier (Now if only I can find some in her size).  The lower part of her torso (which I don’t have a picture of because it seemed indecent) is cloth and stuffed to make her huggable.  And I really…

Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all across Twitter
Tweeples eyes were lit, they were all a-glitter.

The tweets they were flying with speed and delight
as each one made plans for that great winter’s night

“I’m traveling”, “I’m eating”, “I’m hanging with family”
“I just wrapped the presents, I can say now so eagerly”

The fail whale, oh the fail whale, now please go away
if we can’t tweet right now, it won’t be Christmas Day!

Dear Santa, please Santa, here’s what we want most
Just to help Twitter find a better web host!

On Amazon, On iTunes, on Pinterest
On Overstock, on Yahoo, on Google+

On Zappos, on Dell and on Facebook
keep moving that Twitter sleigh so it doesn’t get stuck.

And that’s when I saw it, a light oh-so bright
a gift just for me that I’d open that night

A 30-inch monitor, inviting to me

SNM Turns 50!

We Begin with the “Most Famous” graphics of the show, made by Ukrainian Jewish Alexander Tatarsky (1950-2007), one of the USSR’s best Animators.

This is from A Monday Night episode (i liked this one, well, my 3rd best, behind 1997 and 2002)

This one is secondary in 1986, but official in 1991, (i didn’t like it anyway)

Then This one in 1995 (not so good)

but in 1997, everything went 100% better with this one

then in 1999

and finally, my favorite, the 2002 version! (this is the one i liked best)

Here’s to Russia’s favorite top rated Children’s Show.
