More then meets the eye

I am not exactly sure how it all started. But I know this I am changed. One year for Christmas I received a toy car. It was a cute little yellow bug, named bumblebee.

Other Autobots were spread from child to child in our home year after year. But I loved my little bumblebee. My jet, triple-changer, and my little satellite from a happy meal have all safely made it to my brothers home, where they are currently under his care and on their way to a new fabulous life in Maryland.

I was so anticipating the transformers movie since the announcement years ago. And thrilled when they announced the voice of Optimus Prime would be none other then Peter Cullen, the voice from the cartoon series. I was devastated that I I couldn't see it until it's third week running. But I saw it. Ben took me out! I was giggling and crying and on the EDGE of my seat the whole time. One of my favorite parts is where Optimus prime transforms as he is speeding down the freeway to mission city. hello . .cool. Yet my heart belongs to bumblebee. No joke I seriously Cried when Bumblebee asked OP if he could stay with his human.

I realize this is probably not a normal obsession for a grown person, let alone, a female mother. Luckily for me my kids love it. So we go down the toy aisles now. I have trained them which ones to tell dad to get me for Christmas. We bought it and since have broken the family rule of one hour of TV MAX a day. oops!

friends and loved ones I hope you enjoy the Movie. I was not all that excited when Starbright, my little ponies and other child hood toys started to resurface. It made me feel old . ..outdated. But I relish and wade in the deep sea of transformers. I will end by using OP closing remarks.

With the Allspark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward, a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret: waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there is more to them than meets the eye."

THAT is hilarious, you're emotionally attached to a transformer! I liked the movie but there were some sub-pots that HAD to go, it made it a bit too lengthy...maybe they were just setting up those characters for the next movie.

I woke up at 4 am on a Saturday and couldn't go back to sleep!

Is there such a thing as too much info on Transformers? I don't think so.
