Legends of the Hidden Temple

I've already forgotten what brought about this conversation...mainly because it happened several weeks ago and I'm only now finding the time to blog about it--but I have decided to purchase the set of Legends of the Hidden Temple. If you don't know what that is, you can either stop reading my blog or visit the link and educate yourself. Or I will tell you about the show right now.

Legends of the Hidden Temple was an awesome kids' game show. There was questions to be answered and physical challenges to be undertaken. Basically it was the definition of amazing. The game started out with 6 teams: Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Silver Snakes, Purple Parrots, Red Jaguars and Orange Iguanas. And now, thanks to this site, you can buy team shirts just like the ones on the show. If you buy 5 you get the 6th free. And it just so happens that your favorite blogger's birthday is 1 month from yesterday. Coughcoughsizelargecoughcough.

The first challenge was to cross a moat, and that knocked 2 teams out right away. Then there were the steps of knowledge, which knocked out another 2 teams. And the remaining teams got to play the temple games and run through Olmec's temple and find whatever artifact they were learning about on that episode. However, the temple guards could jump out, scare the living bejesus out of them and screw up the retrieval of said artifact. If you haven't realized this show is great, please stop reading.

Why am I buying this show? Well, I think it started with what we would do with lots of money or something. And honestly, how much could the set cost? Seven...eight dollars? I totally have that...if they'll take a check. My original plan was just to purchase the set (costumes included) and have my friends over to play. We could take turns being the host, temple guards, and contestants...possibly even the voice of Olmec. But, as it just so happens, my friend Amy plans on becoming Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming. She's prepared to air the new version of Legends on NBC (along with the reality/talent show to find her a husband which includes tasks such as folding a fitted sheet). Amy and I have recently decided to add the Sepia Sloths to the team line-up...mainly so we can have 1 shirt for each day of the week. That, and Sepia Sloths is the most awesome name I've ever heard.

Now you know the plan. Tell me it's not the most awesome thing you've ever heard in your life. Go ahead, tell me. Oh, what's that? You can't tell me? You can't tell me because this IS the most awesome thing ever? That's right.

1. as soon as i read this, i paraded around the house steve holt style for probably longer than was necessary until i triumphantly bellowed "i made the blog." laurel and liz were impressed.
2. the conversation was brought about because dustin asked what imaginary thing we would buy if money wasn't an option. i have trouble thinking of imaginary things, so i chose nbc if for no other reason than to let conan do whatever he wants whenever he wants.
3. i already decided to give microwave ovens to laurel. she's in the market for a new job.

I think Laurel would make a great microwave executive...I recall her once saying that she was raised by the TV and the microwave. And I'm glad you remember how the conversation got started!! And I wish I could've seen your Steve Holt Strut of Pride.
