Things I am Pondering...

I've been re-hooked on Gilmore Girls on ABC Family as they recently started airing the series from the beginning. And I would like to know where exactly Stars Hollow is and if I can move there to raise my children? Also, I hate cold weather, so why am I wanting to move to an imaginary town in Connecticut?

I have been shopping for the big man in the red suit this week. Where the hell does one go to buy doll clothes? I know one would think it was an easy task, think again suckers! Seriously, I found one hanger of baby doll clothes at Target and one at Walmart. Likewise one set of Barbie doll sized clothes in each store. Both stores have aisles full of dolls of all sizes. Dolls that eat, pee, sing and/or swim. But no freakin clothing for them. Damn, no wonder they all end up naked in the toy box.

Speaking of nudity in the toy bins. I swear the Happy Meal toys are having happy sex. Seriously where the hell do they all come from?

My MIL gives me lots of hand-me-down books. Which is awesome because I always have something to read. But occasionally I find myself knowing the major plot points before they happen. This week I started a book, for the life of me the jacket blurb did not sound familiar, yet every time there is a twist in the plot I already know it. Who reads a book and then doesn't remember it, even when they are rereading it? It's a weird book deja vu.

My sister and my parents are coming to visit this weekend. I don't know if it's the abundance of Christmas decor yelling "look at me, not the dust" or what, but except for the floors and animal cages the whole house is presentable... um, not a complete mess. Even the girl's rooms have stayed fairly tidy since "we" cleaned them 3 weeks ago. I KNOW! So I have not cleaned AT ALL for their impending visit. I wonder when the motivation... um, panic will set in?

Well there you have it, the inner workings of my brain. Frightening, no?

LOL. Ahhh... When I was a kid, I used to MAKE my barbie clothes. Sort of look like felt potato sacks with arm holes. SIGH.

As for Stars Hallow, it's a make believe place on the Warner Brother's lot..across from the ER Set, saw it 'bout a month ago. Hah!So maybe you should reconsider moving there, might meet George Clooney or somebody.

Hey, I like to dream big.

You can order clothes from American Doll if you want to mortgage your house to buy them.

That deja vu thing with a book is always freaky.

Doll clothes . . . I quite trying to buy them . . . the first thing Princess does is take them off the dolls :-)

And I hear ya on the cleaning . . . my idea of presentable lately has been getting shabbier and shabbier . . . there are even different "levels" of presentable for different people :-)

Have you seen the dolls that poop? It's so wrong.

Funny how Lynette used to make her barbie clothes. SO DID I. Except they were for my sister. I swear.

I bought doll clothes for Munchkin a couple of years ago on eBay! They came and were really great, too.

I think the Happy Meal toys are multiplying as well. When I cleaned the kids rooms I swear I threw out hundreds of them... and there's no WAY we go out to east fast food that much.

Then of course my sister tells me she has to go get the Madacascar toys from Burger King because she has a *thing* for giraffes. I threw out at least three of those stupid giraffes.

A few years ago, my mom went hunting for doll clothes for my niece's Ken doll. Even harder to find than Barbie! We decided Ken must be a kept man - at home and naked just like Barbie wants him to be!

Just an addition, I had the girl's great aunt sew an entire wardrobe for the American girl dolls they have 2 Christmases ago and the outifts are amazing. But right now the child is baby obsessed and wants little sleepers/jammies for her baby doll. I found one at Target and bought it. And I could probably make some myself, but I have a lovely sister who enjoys spoiling her nieces who has offered to buy the overpriced American Girl ones for her. Yeah!
