The next time I say I'm going out into the world searching for something, ask yourself it it's summer where I am. If the answer is yes, smack me. Hard. Well, first ask if the a/c in the car is working, then when I say, "Dunno? No?" SMACK ME.
My trip to TRU was mostly a failure. Le sigh. Widget was a pain in the arse from the second we got to the stop light in front of the shopping center to the moment we got home. Which I don't understand. If it'd had just been him being keyed up, I'd get it. Toy store. Happiest Friggin' Place On Earth when you've got a $3 credit to your name and there are clearance stickers all over the place. But no. There was sulking and severe attitude right up until he was dragged to guest services and they started to blow up a balloon for him. (belated birthday celebration, y'know)
Sadly, it's the start of summer (though, for us, it's actually getting close to midsummer because summer started sometime back in April) and the store looked less than... loved. I wonder if it seemed as sad to munchkin? Doesn't matter. No Monster High. No place for it. No stuff for it. The woman Mums asked said, "Monster... High? What's that? A cartoon or something?" How does one explain MH? Anyway, this woman was either very nice and looked it up and around the store and everything just in case, or she went to the back of the store and hid a lot. I don't really know. Point is, eventually she came back with, "not in the system. Maybe sometime before school starts?"
Now, I know better than to believe this. But still. Frick!
Ah well. I should be saving or spending on Dad. Yes. That's it.
Best Stupid Idea of the Day:
If the front part of the fan (the grill) is being assaulted by the fan blades because the fan is a little too cheaply made to be put together properly, just take the damn grill off for the time being. Result? Less than totally safe fan that brings cool, cool air to me. HUZZAH. Also, time to find one of the two tank tops you own and sit here until the cool air circulates.
I am not made for the summer. It's just... ugh.
