If you gave kids this toy today they would probably throw it at you.

My favorite “reel” was a preview reel it wasn’t even a story it was like an advertisement for other reels I didn’t own I still remember it! It had an ad for Spiderman reels, King Kong reels The Six Million Dollar Man, Some Cartoons, I think... and scenic Travel pictures! How do I remember this stuff??? Out of all the stacks of reels I had I like the advertisement one the best HAHAHA!
Then they came out with the TALKING VIEWMASTER - WOW!
I wanted this BAD But did I get it??? - of course not! My parents used the famous line "You don't want that..."
Tim Burton is 48 Today - Pee-wee's Big Adventure - Beetle Juice - Edward Scissorhands - Sleepy Hollow It's ALL GOOD
He's currently working on Sweeney Todd - Starring Johnny Depp (of course) (infamous story of Benjamin Barker, a.k.a Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop down in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett. )
Miss Jen has asked me to do a "guest post", and I'm SO honored. Usually I'm asked NOT to show up, so this is certainly a thrill for me, let me tell you! I didn't know what to post, so I thought I'd introduce you to a few of my family members.
This is a picture of my nephews: Rob and Bob, and my nephew Todd. They all live in Kentucky.
Rob and Bob work at Radio Shack. They've been there since high school. We actually didn't think they'd be able to keep a job for this long, but it seems to suit them. They are the sons of my cousin Cletus and his wife Starla. I don't see much of them these days.
Todd has worked for several years as a Walmart Greeter. He's been doing it for about 6 years now. He's a son of Cletus and Starla also. He has a slight amphetamine dependency, but in a way it's been a blessing because he's able to work double shifts alot. He's such a good kid!
Once again Jen, I want to thank you for allowing me to participate on your blog. Big hug!!
but these people are constantly giving me material for posts
I don't make this shit up the following is a conversation I had this morning with the Tim Horton's Cashier
I go up to the counter
Counter Girl: Hi Me: Hi can I get a medium hazelnut iced coffee, milk 2 sugars, light Counter Girl: Sure, Cream? Me: NO..Milk, Light Counter Girl: I'm making chocolate cream pie today Me: (Blank stare followed by pause...I'm thinking is she talking to me? Why is she telling me this? What does pie have to do with anything?) What's That?
Counter Girl: I'm making chocolate cream pie today Me: pause... wow.. that's cool Counter Girl: yeah, I'm really excited Me: uhuh Counter Girl: It's my first time making chocolate cream pie I've always wanted to, but I never have. Me: uhuh Counter Girl: It's going to be super yum - I CAN'T WAIT!
These are the thoughts going through my head: Why the hell is she telling me this? Does she think I said something about pie? Is she even talking to me? Super Yum??? - Is she kidding?? What is the point of this conversation? How do I reply to this? Maybe she's "mentally challenged" she looks normal.. she can't be normal and why isn't she getting my coffee??? I'm totally baffled...
Me: So does this mean you've been promoted or something? Counter Girl: no Counter Girl: I love chocolate cream pie but Tom won't eat any, he's a dumb dumb
I'm thinking...Who the fuck is Tom?
Counter Girl: turns around and smiles at this tall dopey looking kid I'm guessing this is Tom
Tom just stands there with an annoyed look on his face
Counter Girl: gives me my coffee - (about fucking time) Have a nice day and wish me pie making luck Me: uhuh.. good luck with that

Buy Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt Again - Yeah, I'm all set with the crushed up beetles, thanks anyway - nice of you to list them on the label - jerks
I don’t know what made me think of this it just popped in my head like most of my flashbacks do
I don’t remember what year it was sometime in the early 80’s
I had gone to a classmates birthday party as a party favor I was given a pack of puffy stickers It was woody woodpecker and friends..
I was quite pleased by this gift
When I was a kid you appreciated stuff like this! I wasn’t showered with gifts on a daily basis like kids are today now a days most kids are so spoiled - not all - but MANY - and get so much stuff they don’t appreciated shit... they just want more and more and more and their parents give them whatever they want. It’s actually kind of sad - because they will never value anything I’m veering off the topic aren’t I...
okay - anyway - as I was saying I was so mesmerized by this great gift I had just received! I went home and showed my mom she said.. “that’s nice”
Later that night I went to bed I placed the stickers on the side of my bed across from my pillow so I could look at them before I fell asleep
I wake up the next morning and I see in front of me just the white card that they came on.. NO STICKERS??!?!?
Then I notice in the corner of my eye woody woodpecker stuck in my hair... I pulled it out It hurt like hell.
Then I felt the back of my head more stickers... AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
I spent the next 20 minutes painfully pulling each sticker out of my hair and placing it back on the white card
How the hell did they ALL get stuck in my hair there had to be atleast 12 of them on that card What he hell was I doing in my sleep??! THE ENTIRE PACKAGE - STUCK TO MY HEAD - WTF?
The stickers were still sticky and I was able to salvage all of them
but still... it was tragic.
It was a tragic puffy sticker incident.
I don’t remember if I told anyone If I did tell my mother she probably just said “that’s nice” Because nobody ever listens to a god damn thing I say..
