At eleven years old I wanted to be Jem.
To be clear, I didn’t want to date her (my pre-puberty emissions were already a-washed over the Prime-adjacent chassis of Elita-1).

She was new wave in the 80s-est fashion of the word and she was assisted in this pop appearance by Skynet’s more sociable sister Synergy, a self-aware holographic projecting computer that chose Jane Fonda’s Workout book as its avatar. The kismet of those two granted a glimpse of how I could appear, neon-shocked with a mane of pink atop the glam applications of Anne Magnuson, pre-Making Mr. Right.
