The hundred-and-seventy-fifth day...

Wednesday, September 16, 2009
One day earlier this year as I was walking by the dollar store, I noticed that the store had put a box of stuff outside marked free. I'm attracted to that word like a moth to a flame so I wandered over. I noticed that quite a few people were circling the box, but no one seemed to want to be the first one to look at the contents. I have no such problem, so I dove in. Once I touched the box, it was like open season - people were chomping at the bit to see what was it it. Weird. The box held mostly crap like incorrectly painted dice and weird, fugly looking garlands. I was about to walk away when I saw a bunch of these things.


To be honest, they kind of freak me out, but I figured it would be nice to bring some back for the office to brighten up/cheer up the place. Initially, I was only going to take a couple, but I ended up picking up one for each assistant (at the time) and one for the Manager and Director of the Department (C.Y.A and all). I thought that they would laugh and get a kick out of how creepy they are (am I alone in thinking that?) but they all really liked them. Who knew?

Anyway, when my previous assistant left, she left hers behind - by accident or on purpose, who knows. Now it just sits at her old desk - now home of the department supplies. I kind of want to put in a drawer so I won't have to look at its creepiness :)

I'm going to be bad and blow off reading tonight. I know, I know...don't tell.

Enjoy the rest of the night everyone!

Maybe it would be less creepy if the face was one color instead of checkerboard and its body wasn't green! :)

I think I'm going to lose some sleep over that picture. Creepy.

Hey Moonjava :) That might help :) I think it's the eyes that do it for me.

Hey Optimistic :) Thanks, haha! They are on stakes, so I guess they are supposed to go in your garden or on your lawn. Not at my house, they wouldn't :)

Hey Badass :) Haha, sorry about that :)

Enjoy the rest of the day everyone!

miss cindy :)

Hahaha, I think they're cute :) I got the giftcards and your very cute and sweet card in the mail earlier this week! Thanks so much :)

You are so not alone in thinking it's creepy. I'm creeped out by dolls in general. Maybe that's why I've always been more of an "action-figure" kind of girl.

It was sweet of you to bring those back to your office.

Oh and if there is one thing I've learned in college....it's not to be ashamed of looking through and taking free stuff! :)

Hey miss cindy :) Yea! I'm glad that you got everything :) You are very welcome, and Thank You for the award - I'll swing by your site shortly :)

Hey WHEVERgeek :) I'm glad to see that I was not the only one learning that lesson in college :) Gotta love action figures. I sometimes wish I still had some of the ones I had as a kid.

Have an amazing week you two!
