I'm a week late on this but I still want to share. I had an awesome childhood in Nebraska and this is just one reason why.
Soo...the Presidential debate aired the other night and the biggest controversy was Mitt Romney's assertion that he will remove subsidies for public broadcasting. The internet exploded over that and elebenty million memes emerged. You can see some at Pink Sith's Thursday Poll post HERE.
I got fired up over that too for a few reasons. The first being summed up perfectly by Neil DeGrasse Tyson in this tweet:
My dad used to do the Pigeon for us. Occasionally, we can still get him to do it. It is AWESOME.
All this talk about PBS and NET especially inspired me to do some nail art.
I especially wanted to pay tribute to my favorite NET produced show, Reverse The Curse.
The premise of the show was a librarian turned archaeologist named Meg and her friend Vera who travel from Lincoln, Nebraska to Egypt and discover a forgotten king's tomb. They find their lives in danger there because of a curse placed by King Hoptuet's uncle, ReadABook.
They then have to reverse the curse by decoding all of the hieroglyphics on the tomb wall.
The show taught about literature and storytelling. It was so much fun to watch as a kid.
So let's go on with a bit of explaining:
Index finger is for King Hoptuet
Middle is Meg the Librarian's scarf and shirt
Ring is Vera's headband
Pinkie is the 1970s era NET logo
This was a challenging manicure to do. But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out considering I have major trouble with freehanding just about everything.
Thank you so much for indulging me in both my ranting and my nostalgia. I recommend you click on the link for Reverse The Curse, it's cheesy now but you'll see why a little kid might have enjoyed it.
