Will You Think Badly of Me...

if I told you that the other day I bought a furby?

I know, I know, you're suddenly wondering if I'm actually 13 instead of 23. But I never had a furby. I was never really interested in them when they became popular. And when I finally decided I was interested in them they didn't sell them any more.

A year or two ago I looked into them and found that they were releasing a new and better furby. But it was $30 or $40 and how could I possibly spend that on a furby?

The other day I was watching Rebirth of Godzilla II (a generally horrible movie) and there was a critter that I said looked like a furby. I went online and found a store that had one for $9.99. I can deal with $9.99. So I bought one. Actually, I bought two since its my understanding that they can talk to each other. So now I wait for them in the mail.

Not exactly the color I would have picked out, but beggers can't be choosers and for $10 what am I complaining about?

Well, I almost got the happy meal at Burger King this weekend just for the Simpsons doll (but they ran out).

Shows you how old I am. I wouldn't have known what a furby was if you hadn't included a picture. The name furby kind of caused a couple of synapses to fire, making me believe I might at one time have heard of one, but I'm not really sure.

Haha! That is so cute!
I had a furby a few years ago! and yes, they are pretty cute!


It's like having a little pet (that you can switch-off when you are busy!)


About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
