I haven't been here lately. Seriously, life is just crazy. I have 2 kids in 2 different schools, both on the opposite sides of the city. My daily car commute with taking them to and from school is 4.5 hours. Except on Mondays, where it is more like 7 hours. So I am pretty exhausted dealing with traffic day in and day out. I can't wait until summer!
So I welcome you back, I welcome myself back and I am going to try to be as coherent as I possibly can.
I will start with a few things I passed up this week at the thrift shops:
When I first saw these fantastic giant canisters I ran towards them before anyone else tried to snatch them up, knocking down the elderly and trampling upon children in a mad dash. Only $5 each? Can that be right? Yea, it was right. You know why? Because they are written ALL over the place, obviously used as storage. (DAMMIT!) AND the labels that wrap around the canister where made of cardboard, so its not like Barkeepers friend or Magic Eraser was going to do any good. I felt like Ralph Wiggums when Lisa said she wasn't his girlfriend at the Krusty the Klown event on live TV...My heart was crushed!
Speaking of Krusty:
A four feet tall Krusty the Klown. $5. I know my son would have loved this, but I decided not to get it for him because I didn't want to look at it every time I went into his bedroom. Sorry, kid! Now if it was a cool character like Homer or Ralph, I would have grabbed it in a heartbeat. But Krusty can kiss my ass!
Here is some cool shitz I didn't pass up:
These sheets! OMG, right? Looks like I tore them of Bob Newharts bed.
This crap seemed kinda cool. My son found the light thingy and he was going to buy it, but then he got sick of lugging it around while I continued shopping, so he let me buy it. Yay, weak kid! I don't know if it works, and Im not going to plug it in because the cord scares me.
I will admit that these guys are kinda ugly. My kids hate these guys and they think they are creepy. Yea...that's why I pick them up whenever I see them.
