All My Toys: Everything Changes

Dear Diary,

This new world is not what I was expecting. Mountains are no longer made of rock but instead consist of boxes housing old relics known as toys. There are no natural sights on the horizon, only a giant wall with toys I used to know frozen in time on cardboard. Where once was a blue sky is now just a spackle white with flecks of glitter that resemble stars. I'm scared I'll never see real stars again. Everything is so weird. I have to make it right. Even if the world hates me, I must make it right.

Quick Update!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a quick update on some posts I have in the works for the Diary. As usual I am currently working on photos for the next piece for All My Toys. This story was supposed to have concluded and toy Miss M was already going to be on her way to living in her fabulous toy apartment in a fabulous toy world where her only way to regain respect from the toys around her would be to join the cast in the making of Jaws 5. A fifth Jaws film is the key to world peace. I'm just saying.

The other projects I'm writing involve a series of entries detailing very special conversations with Justine Dantzer. Justine has a long storied career in the toy industry. She is a toy designer, sculptor, inventor, and illustrator to name just a few of her many talents. The amount of toy lines she has worked on and even had a hand in creating is simply astonishing. I want to explain more but I have to contain myself and save it for these series of articles. Needless to say communicating with her has been a dream that I never even knew I could have come true.

So stick around folks! Diary of a Dorkette is certainly heating up for the summer! I hope you are all doing well!

All My Toys: That's A Turbocone 5000!

Dear Diary,

Far away from the real world, I'm finally back to my old world. A world full of toys and fun! Except nothing is fun anymore. In my absence, Cobra somehow took control and everything turned into a post apocalyptic toy world. I can't keep stressing the whole post apocalyptic world thing. If there's one thing I love it's a lot of cars speeding around in a wasteland. I blame Tina Turner. Either way, keep following the story. I'm in disguise under my super hero alias WoW since the world hates Miss M. I'm also en-route with my ex-boyfriend Michelangelo to meet some guy named Brian Farrell who apparently has information on my friend April O'Neil. This should be interesting. What could be so special about this guy?

Hopefully I'll Survive,
Miss M
