Rainbow Brite and The Electric Mayhem

I was walking down the street this morning on my way to the subway when a little girl did a double take at me, her mouth hanging open in some combination of awe and fear.

I stopped to take stock of my appearance (which, let's be honest, I tend to kind of ignore between November and April).


Ridiculous age-inappropriate snow boots that match both my Superman-blue dress and my bright red coat? Obviously, check.


Gloves that look like lobster claws trimmed with Elmo? Check.

No wonder that little girl stared at me. I look, essentially, like this:


I'm like a Centaur, only more awesome because I have a sweet Color Belt and percussion skills.

  1. It was jealousy. I mean, what little girl wouldn't want to look like a furry's reinterpretation of Rainbow Brite?

  29. I was very disappointed to see that this is your only blog with 'scaring children' as a label. Put in a little more effort, will ya?

    (Also, 'chnongs' is my security word. I think that might be dirty asian slang, and therefore inappropriate for use as a captcha.[Wait, inappropriate? I meant awesome. Sorry.])
