strawberry update


Looks like Offspring #1's old friend, Strawberry Shortcake, is getting a makeover. (She's also getting a new toy line, computer-animated movie, and TV series. Related story here)

I'm not sure I like all of the ch-ch-changes. On the up side, S.S. will be shunning gumdrops in favor of fresh fruit. That's a good, healthy choice. But on the down side, she'll be seen holding onto a cellphone instead of her calico cat, Custard. Awwwww, say it ain't so.

I suppose it won't be long before Brainy Smurf has lasik done and buys a Kindle from Amazon.


(Come to think of it, I'd like a Kindle from Amazon.)

I looked up Kindle....wireless e-book reader with all kinds of freakin' cool features. Sounds mighty interesting, but yikes.....a wee bit on the spendy side!!

more cows than people said...

is it just me or have they taken s.s. from sweet to sexy? i find THAT disturbing.

RHC -- Food Pyramid Fred! LOL!

mompriest -- yeah, people don't always like change, but it's inevitable! :)

db -- kindles are spendy indeed (but they look fun)

more cows -- totally agree, the trend is to sexify!

Speaking of the Smurfs, and particularly Brainy Smurf, check out this USA Today article. There's a Smurf movie coming out, and guess who they want to play Brainy Smurf? Only the greatest American alive today!!
