The hundred-and-nineteenth day...

Wednesday, July 22, 2009
P and I went over to Toys-R-Us in Times Square this afternoon. She had to pick up some birthday gifts for her daughter. While she was shopping, I did some people watching and then found a toy that I instantly disliked.

Evil :(

I just don't like this thing. It looks like it will lie in wait at the home of its buyer, only to one day open its eyes, say hello with it's creepy mouth and smother said buyer with its extra long arms. Creepy! I like this one much better :)

Good :)

Anyway, it was my co-worker J's turn to bring in food for our little lunch swap. It was a delicious mix of cold foods that were very refreshing on a hot, muggy day.

He brought in a tomato, fresh mozzarella, and basil salad, chicken with a light balsamic dressing, and rolls with pumpkin bread and grapes for dessert. It was seriously good, and I have got to get the recipe for that chicken dish.

And lastly, I pass three Vespa scooters on my way in to work each morning. This one is my favorite :)
It's just so adorable and blue and shiny, and shiny and blue and adorable :) I would never ride something like this is the city though. I don't know how bike/scooter/motorcycle riders do it. The traffic, and too many of the drivers here, are insane.
I hope everyone had a great Hump Day. Have a wonderful night!

The first picture of that NYC toy is soo creepy! haha

for the love of pictures

Hey Kimberly :) It is creepy, and it's also one of the first toys that you see when you walk down the aisle, which makes it that much creepier.

Have a great day!

That thing is super creepy! Who comes up with some of this stuff?

for the love of pictures

Hey Waxy :) I don't know. It's like the kind of toy that I would secretly give away or toss if I ever received it. I wouldn't want to chance leaving it in the house :)

Have a wonderful day!

for the love of pictures

Hey Optimistic :) I know, right? It's just so creepy!
