I just knew I was going to have the perfect post for today. It was going to be an easy one.
I didn't want to leave ya'll hanging from the 99 Cent Only store post on Monday, so a little follow up was needed.
I wanted a danged ceramic poodle figurine!
Sounds easy enough. Walk into a 99 Cent Only store. Ask where their priceless collectables are located. And bam, walk out with a treasure. You know, something to pass on to my kids.
|Have you seen this dog?!|
But noooo. I found every other animal figurine imaginable.
There were all kinds of dogs, except poodles, of course. About a million and one different figurines of German Shepherds. Just in case your actual dog wasn't barking enough at you, the ceramic spitting image would the remind you of its non-stop bark.
There were figurines of lions and tigers and elephants and cats and sheep and squirrels.
But no FREAKIN' poodles! And that was at three stores. See! You see my dedication I have.
As I scoured up and down the aisles, the oh-so-flattering florescent lights burning my eyes, I did come upon a plethora of random and useless useful items.
|Beautiful array of stuff...and yes, I took a picture in a 99 Cent Store!|
Vuvuzelas - just in case you wanted to attend any sporting event, at which they are banned.
Mens Bikini Briefs - just in case you wanted to attend any sporting event, at which they are banned.
Knock off Disney Merchandise - because having the real Buzz Lightyear isn't cool enough.
More Prayer Candles than you could shake a stick at - for all you bad sinners out there.
A Play Axe for Kids - anyone out there hoping to raise a serial killer?
But no ceramic poodle figurines.
Although, I think my fictional heroine, Becky Sue, in the tragic, yet inspiring uplifting hick monologue would have probably gone for this baby, had she had known it was available.
|Scary, yet simultaneously thought provoking....|
Nothing says 99 Cent Layaway Plan necessity like a skull with a snake crawling out of it.
Is anyone special in your life having a birthday soon?? Consider your shopping done. This skull says any and everything you ever wanted.
PS - I was featured by Mallori in her Tell the World Tuesday series! You will have to check it out.
Aaannnddd, a NW 2011 (NAD WATCH for all you noobs) update coming soon. Some readers have taking up the popular sport of Nut Spotting (Yep, that is what I am officially calling it), and I have a few pictures to share.
If you have any photos of some Truck Testicles you would like to share (and that you hopefully didn't take by walking around to the back of your pick-up!), feel free to send those puppies in to: TexaGermaNadian (at) gmail (dot) com.
I'll of course credit your photo and share with my readers where you snapped the picture.
Heck, we all know that you and your blog are above showing pictures of nuts on it. I, for one, am not.
Happy Hump Day!
