80s Nostalgia

For some reason, I have been terribly nostalgic lately. I'm not one for the overly sentimental, so I'm quite perplexed as to what is going on to make me feel this way. I have been searching for images of childhood cartoons and toys that I remember on the internet. I felt sad that I hadn't held onto more of these "collector's items". It's not that I have a desire to have them to sell for a profit. I think about wanting them to pass along to any future child or just for my own selfish comfort of knowing that there are around still. Maybe it has something to do with seeing my friend after 11 years. Maybe it's my birthday looming with the big 3-0 ahead. Maybe it's not having any children yet when I thought that surely I would have children at this point in my life. Who knows? I do know that if anyone has a white popple (with the yellow hair that looks like a furry boiled egg when it's all rolled up) that I'd love to talk to you about a lucrative deal.

Looooved She-ra... but really got into JEM too(Truely, truely, truely outrageous!).

The only 80s toy I kept though was my ever faithful Sindy... not that I should be admitting to that or anything!

I used to worship She-Ra. And I had so many popples, even popple bedding! I wish my Dad hadn't gotten rid of all of that stuff. But when I was an angsty teen I never thought I would want those popple bed sheets again!
