All My Toys: 227

Dear Diary,

Snake Mountain is so grody. Like, just the grodiest. But Ed and I are making our trek over the purple rocks and winding paths to the top. We're going to stop Maleficent. She won't ruin this world. She always tries, but I won't stand for it. Everything is going to work out just fine. I have no doubt in my mind.

All My Toys: 226

Dear Diary!

OMG! It's been a hectic holiday season. Maybe it is just the stress of the year, or that we're all buys trying to find Maleficent, but everyone is acting really off. Oola and He-Man are being very secretive. Billy and Sulu are in cahoots with the secret-ness of it all. I have my own secrets. I'm still seeing Luke, even though Ed and I kissed and who the hell knows what that means or what I should even do about it. Quick Charge is back though. She kinda went on hiatus in November. It's nice to see her back, though she seems really sad. The big order of the day is about Maleficent though. April and her dad have been working tirelessly to find Maleficent though. It's really bad. I've been picking up what I can, but what I know so far is that someone in the Foot Clan is spying and reporting info back to April and Casey. That added with what Ed knows, it's not good. Maleficent is up to her old ways and she needs to be stopped. Now I need to go, because I am eavesdropping on April, her dad, and Ed at the Firehouse. Something is up!

Previously on All My Toys

Many years ago Maleficent tried to usher Earth into Total Darkness! (It was a pretty epic crossover toy-blog event) Anyways, Maleficent failed and eventually found herself picking up the pieces of her life in Dimension X where she designated herself the new Mistress of the Foot! Gathering a team of crime lords and other doers of evil, she devised a whole new plan to shake Earth up a bit. And now that she has returned, she is a few steps closer to making her new vision a reality!

Previously on All My Toys,

While in Dimension X, Maleficent gathered a crew of villains to round out her new version of the Foot Clan. Together they found their way back to Earth and are planning on reshaping the planet in shocking ways! Plans for this whole new world have been placed on the back burner for a mere second as the Foot Clan go about finding a new hideout for their nefarious deeds. Mystery man Doom knows of just the right place.

Elsewhere, Winston has been worried about Sarah (Quick Charge) and hopes to be of some help to her. Miss M and Ed finally talk after he dropped the bombshell that Maleficent was back on Earth. And, former flames Glory and JT are finally reunited after a very long time. Click the link for more!

 Dear Diary,

Thanksgiving has been something else. My dad arrived with so much food for my friends. We’re missing some people. Quick Charge is not here. April is having a nice dinner with her dad. I’m still shocked that her dad is back. Billy and Sulu are having a romantic turkey dinner for two. And Ed. Well. We’ve been doing that thing we do where we avoid each other when we shouldn’t be. I am sure he and I will talk about his knowledge of Maleficent being back. Oh. And Luke isn’t here either. He’s saving lives. I admire that a lot, but, I am also thinking he just might not be that into me.

 Dear Diary,

It’s Halloween!! Oh my goodness my costume is so much fun. I’m planning on making this the most memorable night ever, because it might be my last. I made a deal with a witch a long time ago to transform myself into a beauty, and now she is coming to collect. So, before I tango with that mess, I just want to escape with a hunky dreamboat of a man and just forget things for a moment. April’s Annual Halloween Bash will be perfect for that.

All My Toys: 217

 Dear Diary,

It’s been a couple days from the debate. Wow, what a train wreck that was. Luckily everyone is going to be ok. I also just found out that Halloween night will have a blood red sky. I was hoping my ears were playing tricks. But it’s true. And that means I might not be long for this world. That witch is coming for me. She promised she would. So, I don’t know what I am going to do, but one thing is true, I plan on making the most of it. I am going to April’s Halloween party! I am gonna dress up and get down. I hate this. There’s so much I need to tell people but I can’t. It’s just too much. Also, side note, but Chewie is terrified of undead robo me. He has been hiding in the laundry room. Poor guy. Oh well, I need to figure some stuff out.

Previously on All My Toys,

President Count Chocula and Sydney Rutledge faced off in a presidential debate! Before the debate could start, Sydney’s running mate, Strawberry Shortcake, had a moment with Count Chocula but it was ruined by Magica de Spell! Dreamy Garrett was back and ready to protect his sister Glory and support Sydney while also locking eyes with Mila! News reporters April O’Neil and Megan Fox reignited their feud! And before the debate could really get going, shots were fired by Sydney’s stalker who is dressed like the killer from the Stab movies!

 Dear Diary,

I’m getting ready for a big event! The 2020 debate! I’m going to actually be there live! I can’t believe this. I also can’t believe that Count Chocula is up against Sydney Rutledge. Two people that I think the world of. This should be a debate I’ll never forget.

Previously on All My Toys,

Maleficent has become the mistress of the Foot Clan. Bringing her clan together, she is working on the ultimate plan to reshape Earth as we know it! Miss M's friend Ed has known for awhile, but he was not expecting Maleficent to actually be on Earth, instead of Dimension X where she has been for the last number of years.

Sydney Rutledge is running for president and for her life! With a crank call stalker, who has already potentially killed Sandy Swan, Sydney is in high stress as she prepares for her debate against Count Chocula. Another source of stress? Old friend, and now enemy, Mila Rosnovsky is now sharing space with Sydney since there is safety in numbers from this dangerous threat. Of course the question on everyone's mind is, who could this crank caller be?

All My Toys: 213

Dear Diary,

April is in her feelings. She believes that Casey is having an affair. I don’t really see it, but she is good at picking up on things. I’m actually surprised she hasn’t picked up on my own guilt in not telling her a huge secret, that her father has been alive this whole time and is in Dimension X. Or the other detail that the “hungover” chick in the corner of my room is not really my cousin but undead robo me. I’ve dubbed her Miss Z, short for Miss Zombie because I don’t even know the appropriate name anymore. What is life? It just keeps throwing these balls at my face and I do not like it when balls hit my face, regardless of any hits to my social life.

All My Toys: 212

Dear Diary,

Well. Pizzazz was arrested for being the ring leader in plotting my death. My mother escaped and is on the loose. Velvet Sky and I buried a years long feud. And... I have this version of me. Like the version of me that died in the sewer. Pizzazz and Dr. Wiley put old me back together and added some robotic parts, it's creepy as hell. Like, super creepy. I mean what do I even do with her? I know this much, I don't want anyone to know that I have old grody robo-zombie me hanging out in my apartment. Velvet Sky thinks I buried her, but I didn't. I just, like, it's me. I am not mentally prepared to bury myself. So for now, I'm just hanging out with myself. Unless this has all just been a wild dream. Yeah! That's it. This has all just been a crazy wild dream.

All My Toys: 211

 Dear Diary,

O.M.G. The plan is totally working. Velvet Sky convinced Pizzazz and her crew to meet up, Velvet Sky lied and said she finally killed me already and when she wheels my body in, I am gonna play opossum and then when everything reaches a dramatic point, I am gonna pop my eyes open and freak them out and stun them long enough for the police to show up. I just need to remember that my mother has been plotting my death and I can’t engage with her. I need to perform this stunt perfectly! Those fools are going down!

All My Toys: 210

 Dear Diary,

I’m in trouble. I feel like I am always in trouble. Or there is some new mess to get in the way of my life. I am facing two big threats. One is my mother and the group of ragamuffins she is running around with and the other is some old witch from my past. It all sounds like some over the top tale, but this is my life. Before I potentially meet my maker, I am going to make sure I do the right thing for one of the most important people in my life. Yvie.

All My Toys: 209

 Dear Diary,

Omg. My dad has been in prison for like most of my life because he was once this crime mob boss. But he served his time and I am thinking we might reconnect and actually build a family bond again. I just have to trust that he is really trying to do the right thing. I mean he isn’t plotting my death like my mother, so he is already winning best parent of the year. Anyways, that’s it. I can also smell pasta cooking in his house, holy moly it smells good.

All My Toys: 208

 Dear Diary,

I’ve learned that my mother is trying to kill me. I don’t know why, but I need to figure out what my next plan is. I think it will involve visiting my dad, a man I have not seen in years. He might know something, or like, maybe he has heard from her? I should probably just visit the high end fashion stores, I can always count on Cruella to be surrounded by couture. Anyways. Sometimes I wish I could just peek in on other people in this town and just see what they are up to. If Maleficent were back from space, I bet she’d help me with that. Actually, she does not need to be back on Earth. Trouble tends to be her shadow.

 Previously on All My Toys,

The 2020 Presidential Election is heating up! With Cobra out of the way, Count Chocula is trying clean up the mess left over by the terrorist group! Wealthy socialite Sydney Rutledge is looking to challenge Chocula and recently upped the stakes of the election by having Strawberry Shortcake (who just recently became Chocula's ex-wife and former first lady) as her running mate. Sydney is running on a campaign of no more drama! 

Also, the lovely Miss M just found out that her mother, Cruella de Vil, has been a part of a plot to kill her.

All My Toys Episode 206

 Dear Diary,

I’ve been busy! There’s all the party planning for Strawberry Shortcake’s birthdays! She missed out on a handful, the poor thing. I still can’t believe Cobra locked her inside Scrooge McDuck’s bank and fed her chocolate with her thinking it was her dead husband. I mean who does that? Anyways, I am still working with Velvet Sky (huge surprise) to find out who all is trying to kill me and just what the plot is. It’s a tale as old as this soap opera, but I think we are finally making headway. Plus it is nice that Velvet Sky and I are not at odds. I’m cool with that. In other news Bruce is dating Vicki Vale, I don’t want to talk about it. Besides, I am talking to a dreamy fire fighter, though neither of us seem ready to just jump in and actually go on a date. Maybe he thinks I am lame? Or maybe I am just not his type? Also, I have not forgotten that the old witch from my past is out there, waiting for a red night sky to be a warning of her arrival. I fear my time on this planet is reaching its end. And what the heck do I do with that?! Oh where is Deanna Troi when ya need her?

All My Toys-205

Dear Diary,

Ok, so like it has been a weird summer. The team is all off in different directions. Oola and He-Man have teamed up to find Geoffrey the Giraffe, who they totally think is still alive, but I have my doubts. Billy and Sulu are on some really long extended honeymoon. Samus is off in space. Brian is raising his robo-baby. I don't really know what Quick Charge is up to, she tends to keep to herself when we aren't in a group setting. And Ed, well, we've been eating lots of ice cream and watching horror movies while I try and figure out my alliance with Velvet Sky. I've seen Yvie here and there. Bruce is acting funny. I don't know why. And I occasionally text the hot fire fighter. His name is Luke but with that beard and those arms, honey, I just forget a lot of things.

Anyways, I am off to visit Strawberry Shortcake. She has not been in the best place since her marriage ended with Count Chocula over really weird circumstances.

See ya!

All My Toys: 203

Dear Diary,

What can I say? I am walking into the belly of a very vicious beast. I am planning on talking to Velvet Sky. She needs to know that whoever that was on tv, attacking her, that it was not me. Yes, she killed me many years ago, but I have largely gotten over that. And I’ve never said another word about her highlights. So there really should be zero beef between us. Mmm beef. I think I am craving a burger...

Friday the 13th turned 40?!?!

I recently found out that on May 9th, Friday the 13th turned 40. I could not let that pass without saying something. Read on for my memories of the thrills and chills of Kevin Bacon's butt, camp, and one helluva of mother.
