Need rest...NOW!

Alright. I am officially exhausted.

I know I've said that before but here's why...

2 nights ago, my brother calls me (while I'm asleep) and asks me if I think I would be able to purchase an Elmo Live doll.

For those of you who don't know what that here.

Did you click on it? Did you see it? Cause the first thing that came to my mind was OH HELL NO!!

Apparently it is supposed to be all the rage and people will be stomping all over each other in the department stores (like they did with the Tickle Me Elmo doll) trying to purchase this creepy ass doll. I, on the other hand, have never even heard of it before my brother called me and mentioned it. He said that they were trying to purchase it online but it has been sold out since August and may be on back order. He is dying to get it for his daughter (who, I found out through my sister in law, has the Tickle Me Elmo doll and is STILL warming up to it).

They dolls went on sale today so I knew that no one was going to be trying to run me over in Walmart at midnight to get this doll. I called and they said they had it in stock they just haven't taken it out of the boxes yet. I got there at midnight, the lady cut the cellophane, cut open a box and handed me one of the dolls.

Just like that. I beat the crazy rush. (if there was even going to be one).

So now I get home feeling good that my brother won't be worried about not getting a doll.

I get a call early in the morning and it's him (my brother) telling me that he just got out of work and he went into a nearby Kmart and there were a few people there carrying armloads of the doll and he managed to get one of the 2 that were left on the shelf.

Well...anyone interested in a creepy ass Elmo Live doll? I'm not to keen on having this thing in my counter and I'm a little worried about walking by it at night for fear of it busting out in song and dance. You all know what I'm talking about. I'm sure those of you with kids have all had SOME kind of doll that used batteries and when the batteries started wearing down the voice or movement of the doll was almost devil-like. NOT HERE PEOPLE.

Someone wants this doll! I know it!
Another reason why I'm soooo tired is because some of the parents and I got together to have an unscheduled soccer practice with the kids today. I was out there running my butt off and practicing with the kids when I KNEW I should have stretched beforehand. (we all know what we are supposed to do but do we ever do it??? NOOO)

My legs are sore and my butt hurts. That is exactly what I get.

I don't care. I got to see Devyn in rare form and the more practice he gets the better he is getting. It's all worth it.


On a side note...I like reading blog entries from The Bloggess. She's funny as hell. She also linked to another funny blogger that I am just now starting and I can't help but try not to pee my pants. Check him out too. His blog is called The Sneeze but what really got me were these posts!

Now, before I hit the bed...just a little more incentive to get people to come and visit me, you know....if you want.....

Seriously, that doll will kill you in your sleep. You can see it in his eyes.

Hang onto it and sell it to a crazed non elmo owning parent around christmas time, you will make a killing...and become a savior to some parent that didnt buy it in oct.

OMG. I didn't know you were going to come and stalk me because I linked your name in my blog.

I was totally thinking about doing that. Hopefully my master plan with pan out.

That doll is creepy. It murders children and their dreams. It causes AIDS. I'm sure of it.

The drop in gas prices is like a serious tax cut. It's like that little ray of hope

I just tagged you.

Those dolls are scary. Talking critters are just too much for me.

I am so proud of you for gettin' out there and runnin' with the kid. But woman, you're a PT. STRETCH!

Ben said...

Thanks for stopping by and good luck with the living doll. I think they've made horror movies about that but they probably would've been much cuter with Elmo starring.

I want them to make a Live Chucky know that doll from Chil's Play, that would totally kick elmo's butt!

OK hork that food site is NASTY!!

Put Elmo on ebay baby!

Elmo? fuck that. Im glad my kids are grown..a little grown, but way grown up for Elmo. Although I can kind of see my teens getting stoned and laughing hysterically over it.

The last thing I looked forever for, was that damn Wii. Now they arent even interested in it! Im now kind of glad I couldnt find it.

i'm an elmo factory over here. i have every elmo doll, book, toy, movie, etc made...

and out of all of them...elmo live is the devil. like for real. we kept pushing the button he'd say his peace, blow the kisses, "elmo loves you.."

so how bout randomly one day he starts telling new jokes, moving sporadically, & acting "different". turns out there was a little tab you were supposed to pull to "bring him to live EVEN MORE". but i missed the pulling the tab part (my son must have seen it and pulled it himself). cause when he started being the life of the party i put his ass in the bottom of the toy box. i swear elmo dolls will reset on "dorothy's (elmo's fish) bday 2020" and they will just come alive and start wrecking red furry devil havoc on the world. kill elmo now.
