I won't paint my nails green or dye my hair the color of broccoli, but I absolutely have what the New York Times has deemed "Muppet Mania." There are few things that make me as happy as a good episode of the Muppet Show. And one of my all time favorite movies is The Muppets Take Manhattan. I simply cannot wait until their new movie comes out. Jim Henson knew how to fill a kid (and adults) spirit when he created those furry friends and now leading designers are lining up to capitalize off of Kermy and Piggy's love. It's funny how something is so unpopular until culture renders it popular. I mean, Kermit sings a whole song about how it's not easy being green... and now, all of a sudden, it's THE thing to be. Says who? Culture? The other Muppets? Hollywood?
Come opening day, I may rock the green... I may not. (Does Rebecca Minkoff make green booties?)
Either way, I'll definitely be first in line for the Thanksgiving premiere of the new Muppet movie. Because you're never too old to be a kid — even if it's not the popular thing to be.
