    I guess Hasbro released a few Sea Ponies and then killed off the subline because of disappointing sales. A lot of toy lines have their spinoffs that seem like a fantastic idea at first, then the sales numbers start rolling in and they realize they should have gone in another direction.

    I bought a frame for my first published piece of writing. It was a Cracked.com Photoshop contest, but it's mostly writing, and they published it, so it counts.

    I bought a new frame for my first rejection letter as well, because I can't find the one I bought years ago. It's empty because I haven't received a rejection letter yet. Although, I just submitted a poem to Poetry Magazine because I'm required to for my creative writing class, so I should have one in 6 to 8 weeks, then I'll be a real writer!

    They are in your mother's attic next to your hula-hoop and lite-brite that you only used once and you used it to make a swear word.

    This one. I'm #5. A bunch of people in the comments said it should have been #1, and those people are awesome. Especially this:

    I'm not the only one here who has been in one. I remember seeing Trekker4747's name once, but I don't remember which one. I'm sure he knows though.

    No, that's your My Little Pony collection, hula hoop, and Lite Brite, and your mom's attic.

    My mom doesn't have an attic.

    While I don't have an attic, when I was 9, I did use my Lite Brite to spell "Boob". Also, "Spock".

    I used my calculator to spell boob. Boobies, actually. Still do, actually.

    I think I did play with the Lite Brite only a few times, but that was because it was really my big brother and sister's toy.

    You know, the thing I remember playing the most was Robin Hood. I used to make my own bows and arrows out of sticks, ivy vines, and found feathers. When I was 9 I brought one to school for show and tell. It was my best one, and could shoot 50 feet.

    I used to superglue the Lite Brite pieces together to make spaceships.

    ^ I once made the Battlestar Galactica out of the styrofoam from a box of ice cream cones. I used a poker chip for the "window".

    I once found a way to play Star Trek with G.I. Joe figures. I was a creative and pretty warped little boy. I just pretended that the Joe gang were Enterprise landing party officers wearing military-style protective gear and helmets.

    Don't ask why the Enterprise armory had bazookas and shotguns, though.

    No, but I like where this is going.
    I used to create shuttlecraft out of legos.

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Playing around with a new camera-app on my ancient (= four years old) phone the other night, I took this of the dig the town has turned our street into:
