Re: Basically it's Tuesday

The hall is done for today...Heiner is just changing out the light switches. I got new stiches for the whole flat yesterday after work.

Tomorrow (after I leave for work) the floor will be done. It should be easily done by the time I get home because it's much smaller than the kids room and apparently I'll be rearranging the freezers again

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Hola mamacitas!

It's like having a new flat, eh, Janine?

So Ian has only asked for these certain villain action figures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for his bday, which is in a week. Can't find them online. Further research indicated that these particular villains are only just being rolled out for the first time this week. Any big box store that gets a new case of TMNT action figures will only have one of two of these villains and two of the third in the whole case of figures. So I am basically making the rounds at all the big box stores, trying to beat the sweaty comic book/action figure collector nerds to the punch to get these things. The fifth store I went today had one of the ones that there are two in the case. In the hands of a 70YO man who got there 2 minutes before me. Who quickly sensed I might kill him and fled for his life, when he realized I was looking for the other three villains that some other sweaty nerd swiped before us. I have already been to five other stores before today. You can't call ahead to ask, because all the action figures have the same upc code. Nobody knows when a shipment will arrive, they just are pleasantly surprised when it comes. It doesn't look good.

The ones on amazon or ebay are scalper's being sold at 4x the price. Or they are the previous old toys. No thanks.

It's frustrating, because I am not competing against other parents trying to get their kid the fave HTF Xmas toy. I am competing against sweaty comic book nerds who will leave it NIP and proudly display it on a shelf where they live in mom's basement.

In a month or two they will be readily available anywhere. It's just they roll out this week, and Ian's bday is in seven days. I'm not paying $30 for someone to ship me a $8 action figure that won't arrive in time for his bday anyway, KWIM?

Also, I had told Ian the figures he was seeing in the commercials were not out yet prior to our trip to Texas. So I thought I was safe. Then Grandma bought him the Pizza Pop Up set for his bday in Texas, and it had a brochure inside that said collect all these now, as if they were already available. So he doesn't understand how difficult these will be to get now, as opposed to later.
