And now my childhood desires are met (Well one of them . . .)

One of my earliest memories is my 4th birthday party. It was Wonder Woman themed, complete with a Wonder Woman-shaped cake. I’m pretty sure whoever made it used this pan except without the creepy plastic face. One drawback of this awesome cake was the fact that the black icing used for her hair tasted like evil. Gag.

Other than the horrible black icing, it was one of the most perfect childhood birthdays. I was a massive fan of the Wonder Woman TV show starring Lynda Carter. So much so that I used to run around the house in my WW Underoos wearing a couple of my mother’s golden bangles as my bullet-deflecting cuffs. My “lasso of Truth” was a jump rope. Good Times.

Truth be told, I haven’t read much recent WW comics, but my love for her has never waned. So when I saw that Converse was offering Wonder Woman Chuck Taylors, I lost it. While I may no longer have my Underroos, these would do nicely for general crime-fighting. Full disclosure: I already own the Converse Catwoman Chuck Taylors but they were bought mainly because they were a fantastic purple (OK and also because they had Catwoman on them).

Sure they are pricey, but they will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get an Invisible Plane.
