I recently stumbled upon the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, which is pretty much a network of awesome bloggers that share the same passion for Nostalgia that I have. Each week a topic is assigned and each member of the group cooks up an awesome post.
This weeks assignment was “I’m Feeling Blue.”
It was a photo assignment, which is generally quite easy, but I wanted to come up with a photo that was unique and likely not posted by any of the other members. I ran through my collection trying to find something that was blue, awesome and unique. And then it hit me:
As a kid when all of my friends had Star Wars bed sheets, my parents had to make sure I was different (example, while all my friends had Reebok Pumps, I had Kmart Traxx), which is why I ended up with these sheets. My assumption was that these sheets were less expensive than the Star Wars sheets.
A few of the other bloggers came up with some fun photos. Here are a few of my favs: Muppet Babies Lunch boxes, a Van Gogh quote related to blue, orange and an action figure, and a super rad blue Boglin.
Now, the assignment was blue, which these sheets are, however, seeing these sheets also invokes a bit of sadness as I know that they will never fulfill their destiny of keeping someone warm during a slumber. They just sit in my closet while I decide what to do with them. I keep thinking that I should invoke the help of my crafty neighbor to turn them into a bean bag chair, but I’m just not sure.
