Random bits

With only five shopping weeks left until my birthday, there is some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that if you did not plan accordingly, you might've missed the opportunity to secure your purchase of Little Lu Lu or Baby Babu for me. The good news is that Leila is now on the scene, and she might just be the finest creepy monkey doll in the land. While she is touch activated to wrap her tiny hand around your my finger, and also needs batteries, make no mistake...the fine print says she is NOT a toy. Of course she isn't!
I am on pins and needles! I am not just bursting with the wonder over which of these primates will be on my doorstep (maybe all three? Squeeeee!), but with the holidays just around the corner, what other wonders of simian science will be gracing my coupon section?!?!

For some reason, my husband got to fill out the questionnaire my son brought home from his Chemistry teacher. I admit to offering Minecraft-y, but those other two?
Plus, now the teacher has to worry about what the resourceful kid is up to during chem lab. Maybe for number four I should have noted that his father suffers from delusions of humor.

Here is the latest Walmart ad to grace our mailbox...
Now I love a frozen pizza and Edy's ice cream as much as the next lazy mom, but the shear ambiance of Walmart is not what brings me through the door (in fact, I am usually dragged there kicking and screaming, and then leave in a foul mood), but the prices might...hmmmm, prices?

Now here is a delightful dinner option. Got the price, but no idea how much those six cubes weigh!

Um, when did Dora branch out into the adult toy market? I don't think Swiper is going to steal that!

On that note, I should probably go (*blushing*)...

Don't forget to see what Stacy and the other Randomers have going on this week!


  1. I can't decide what is creepier. Leila or goat meat.

  2. Uhmm, interactive monkey doll? Really?? Creepy

  3. Interactive monkey doll - that thing is a bit creepy.

  4. Goat meat? Down here it's called Cabrito. I don't eat it, but I am told that it is tasty. I also won't eat Lengua(tongue), Tripas(tripe), or Barbacoa(something involving the head of the cow). Don't get me started on Menudo. The food, not the singing sensation of the 80s.

    That monkey is going to give me nightmares!

  5. You KILL ME! That monkey doll would scare the bejeezus out of my kids, so now I'm thinking of getting it for punishment purposes. Talk sassy to me? Go hold ugly monkey doll in time-out for 5 minutes. Think of the possibilities!

    And I'm just too uncomfortable to talk about that Dora...er...."device."

    1. Oh the possibilities are pure genius!

      Sorry for disturbing Dora, but that just doesn't look much like the microphone it was intended to be, does it?

  6. OMG LOVE that monkey! I could totally freak some people out with that. I noticed the whole no price thing going on.... another reason I avoid that store.

  7. HAHA I'll pass on the Dora the "Explorer" sex toy as well. Happy early birthday!

  8. BARF - goat meat? That just made me lose my appetite, which maybe is a good thing....
