    Wonder Twins Activate

    You have to remember this cartoon. It was the best! My brother and I played it all the time and loved coming up with different things. One would be water and the other a tiger or whatever. Of course then we'd battle each other but it was still a creative way to play.

    I was in my last relationship.

    He was a great guy. Whenever I was sad, I'd sit in his lap, wrap my legs around him and kiss his neck softly while he rubbed my back for hours. I miss that, feeling of security, I guess.
