My action figure
We went to go see the new X-men movie tonight - I was disappointed, because they're usually fun, and this was more violent than anything.
Mr RK complains: "It was only eye candy for girls! There wasn't what's-her-name in blue paint!" (I might edit, eye candy for heterosexual girls...and he is referring to Rebecca Romijn, who played Mystique in the other X-men movies.)
I love comic book characters, action figures, and movies, even though I never read actual comics. When I was a kid, instead of collecting dolls, I collected action figures. Needless to say, my parents got a lot of lectures about how it wasn't "ladylike" for me to do that...and my parents, to their credit, essentially told people to fuck off. Not exactly in those words - this was Minnesota in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
So check it out... I LOVE this action figure, because it looks like me! My arms aren't quite that muscular, thankfully..."If they were," says Mr RK, "you would scare me."
So wish me superwoman strength for our event Sunday...I was going to post a picture of someone wearing the shirt to see if YOU would wear it, but Mr RK said, "If you do that, you will no longer be anonymous! Someone can Google your city, the name of your workplace, the name of the walk...and find you."
Translation: I would no longer have anonymous breasts, either ;)
(If you want to see the picture with the shirt, let me know and I will e-mail it to you.)
