Turtle Girl

Random Collection #26

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.

Meeting Fans across Country

Traveling the country in 2009 was a dream trip.  I was getting to meet Turtle Fans in every state along the way, answering questions at the bus when people had Turtle questions, seeing fans of all ages coming to see the Tour bus.  I only wish I was working officially with the tour.  But, it was a wild and crazy trip I will never forget.  Though there was something weird for me on this trip, and that was how many people knew who I was.

Now 2009 is still a year before I started “Cowabunga Corner”, it was five years since the VH1 show aired.  And yet as I went across country, every state, every city I went to, people knew me.  Even at rest areas people would come up asking “Are you the Turtle Girl?”, so now I’d like to share some of these fan stories from across the United States in 2009.

BLT Pizza

On VH1’s “Totally Obsessed,” I showed that I eat a pizza called BLT pizza. A lot of people have given huge reactions to this pizza.  People have been giving me the credit for making up this pizza.  The fact is that I learned of this pizza, before Ninja Turtles even entered my life.  I would like to now share where I learned of BLT pizzas.

The year was 1987, living in Michigan we had a few pizza places that I would go to with my family.  One of which hired my dad to do art work for the place.  So we’d go and get our pizza there, every now and then.  It was not our normal pizza place, but their pizza was good.  I would eat pepperoni pizzas as my favorite back then, as I was very picky on what I wanted on my pizza.

Review: IDW TMNT #2

Issue #2 of the new IDW Comics has just been released. Last time we were left off was with Casey Jones being attacked by his drunk father.  Raphael jumps in to stop this attack, so that is where they pick up right away with the comic.  We get to see a fight between Casey’s father and Raphael.  The father does put up a good fight before getting thrown out of his own house and driving away.  Raphael and Casey now start to talk and make friends, once Casey asks where Raph is from it goes into another flashback of the lab where April O’Neil is working.
