Thank you to everyone who continues to read my blogs, some days I’m not getting many hits on my web site but other days I seem to do really good. As long as I have “regulars” I will continue blogging. Your comments and the fact that I can bring a smile to your day makes it all worthwhile to me.
The Christmas List
My son has some odd items on his Christmas list this year: wind-up teeth and a Whoopee Cushion but nothing as strange and unusual as my daughter.
The Monster High collection is the complete opposite of Barbie. These dolls are dead and attend Monster High School. They have disfigured appearances and are the offspring of famous monsters such as Dracula or Medusa, mummies, werewolf’s, zombies and other strange creatures. One is a vegan, one has piercings and another can turn people to stone with his eyes if his glasses aren’t on. These dolls are Erie! My daughter has requested one of these complete with a hydration station. For $40 you get a doll and a tank where the doll “rehydrates” in water. The station doubles as a night light and has different colored lights and bubbles.
My daughter has also requested a Monster High jewelry box. This jewelry box is in the shape of a coffin. The upper level is where you can store your jewelry and the bottom level is where your doll can sleep. I think kids like this kind of stuff just to freak their parents out.
Also on her list is: Squinkies, Zoobles and Orbeez. It sounds like a foreign language to me. What happened to Polly Pocket, Little Pet Shop and Barbie? At least I could remember the names.
Prior to Halloween we watched: It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, with our kids. That movie came out in 1966 and boy has a lot changed since then. I would have to say that Charlie Brown was
“bullied” by the rest of the Peanuts gang. Our society has changed so much! I’ve always felt sorry for Charlie Brown but this time it made me wonder what he would have been like as an adult. But thankfully Charlie Brown never grew up so I can stop worrying about him.
There is one REALLY GOOD trick you can play on someone on this Thanksgiving. Try to distract whoever is cooking the turkey and stuff a Cornish
hen inside of the turkey. When the cook begins carving the meat everyone can freak out and say that he/she cooked a pregnant turkey! Bring your video
camera; you won’t want to miss the look on the cook’s face or the frightened
gazes of the little children!
