mini memoir

I was tagged to write a 6 word memoir by Christina LMT. I was flattered that she thinks I'm interesting enough to participate.

Breda: still searching for her superpower.

A very blurry and very tiny me, circa 1978 or 79.
Two years in a row, I was Wonder Woman for Halloween, proudly posing in my homemade tinfoil bulletproof bracelets. I didn't want to be a princess - I wanted to kick ass. I had a Wonder Woman doll, watched the TV show obsessively and even had little Wonder Woman underroos (which, if they were made now in grown-up girl sizes, I would probably still wear ).
For my 30th birthday, my mom got me this - and a cake to match.

Discontented Cookie, MattG, Squeaky, Earl, and Nicki - consider yourselves tagged...

Here are the rules for this little task:
1. Write your own six word memoire.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want.
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4. Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5. Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play....

Also, since you're into reading and all...;)
Take a look at "Don't Look Down" by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer.

Wonder Woman plays an important, empowering role in that book.

Oh my god, you look like the little girl from "Little Miss Sunshine".

Uh-oh - I guess I'll have to think of something while I'm at the range tonight.

That costume is so cute!

And I am here because she can spell my name and I think she means me, but I have been wrong before.

Have a Wonderwoman way!

Yep, I missed it. My new job doesn't allow me to surf as much as I want... that is to say, I don't have access to any blogs at all. They're filtered, so I missed it. :-(

Hi there! I played along down the line on this tag in a direct descendent from your post. You can find my memoir here. Stop by and leave a comment if you'd like.

I also traced the geneology of the tag. It goes back many, many generations by now.

All the best,
