A Super Reminder of Awesomeness
Super news… I attended the Warner Bros Christmas party in Melbourne.
This is me and some super, random crazed obsessed fan who recognised me there and wanted a pic taken with me with a super funky Warner Bros backdrop.
I walked in as me, my awesome self, Tamzen Temple… and walked out called the More Freaking Awesome, Super Amazing Yet Still Stunningly Intriguing, TT.
Yes, with a gift bag in hand for attending with all this Super Hero stuff in it and invincible sprinkled all over me, I came home and wanted to share my life, since this day, this transformation of me.
Since then……. the two hours of being surrounded by all things super, I have come to realise that a lot of adults have many issues.
I just don’t understand why I as an adult get glares from obviously envious people because I am wearing my Wonder Woman suit at the supermarket.
I mean think about the code there….. SUPER market. It’s a no brainer and obviously where they hang out.
I just keep missing them.
And BTW Bronzy never gets glares but instead, loving stares when he ventures out as a little Batman.. He gets a zillion compliments of ..”oh you’re so cute…”
He has also fallen in love with the Flash and runs around the house certain there are flames coming from his feet caused by the stealth swiftness of his speed. The pic below is not Bronzy but be a pre-enactment of Bronzy on Christmas day as the Flash!! (Flash suit available from Target, Myers, Toys are us and Spotlight)
But back to me…
Why is there still a stigma toward those who are a little bit flamboyant in what they wear?
“Would you prefer my bleached holey trackies?” I ask the girl at the register?
“Why does me, dressed as Wonder Woman make you feel uncomfortable???” Crickets chirping…..
She scans at the speed of light to get me out of there.
I mean like, she, who is in the club of pastelly purple hair is judging me….?
She who has a nose ring covered with a skin colored band-aid, fluorescent green colored fake contacts in thinks I look silly??
But then I realise she probably missed the original version of Wonder Woman and doesn’t have that deep connection to the glass invisible jet, gold lassoo and the Amazon women that I have.
BTW Micko the Temple Guru, if you are reading this…. I love this mug and it’s available from TYPO.
Look…it’s got its little cape and all……….
I forgot how much I loved superheroes. I relived it by spinning in the lounge room trying to turn into Wonder Woman (showing Bronzy how it was done) and even when I went really fast it never happened.
What I realize now is all women are absolutely wonderful and secretly have superpowers of their own that many don’t fully reveal.
They stay disguised for fear others feeling threatened of their super humanness. otherwise known as survival of being a mum, a woman or just an adult…..
How many times have you looked at a fellow female friend and thought…. how does she do that? Be it have an immaculate home or neat children or perfectly groomed hair or be unbelievably organised, the ability to cook a gourmet meal while hanging out the washing. Whatever it is, each of us women have super qualities, unique qualities that the other might not. Thank goodness the majority of us have evolved to admire it and high five one another instead of feeling insecure….
If you haven’t done so, tie a tea towel around your neck like a cape whilst doing the house work, or better still go and purchase an adult super suit.. If that’s not your style add a little super with one of these..
Seriously you will feel much more invincible and mop those floors super fast while flipping pancakes all while reading a book to your child knowing you have a super emblem attached to you somewhere.
I decided after attending the Warner Bros Christmas Party. Big sigh…… that I will take the Super Hero Christmas oath of buying everyone I buy for, something superhero…. but only after I purchase all things off the super list I made….
Out of all the super things I saw that day, I have to say my favorite was this canvas. It looked freaking super retro and covered a bunch of super moments. And… as I hyperventalate that it is, was or will be available at Aldi.
That same day on arrival home, Micko wore the Superman socks I kept for him, I swear he moved faster than ever. He was up, up and away making me a coffee in my non caped Wonder Woman mug I was given and said these exact words…. “There’s something different about you today, something super.”
And this made me think. No bad can come out of superheroes. They represent power and the good in mankind that just so happen to be unhuman or superhuman.. but my point is we all need reminders and a good dose of super heroes to remember how super life is.
Get someone you love something super heroish to remind them that to you, they are super freaking amazing in all they do.
From Superhero Lego, jewelry, games, calendars….Keep an eye out for all the amazing products from DC Comics, Lord of the Rings, Looney Tunes this Christmas.
Peace and Ommmm from the Temple. xx
Please note, although I was given products, I was not asked to write anything but wanted to as I was totes super impressed. Xx
