Actually, not ugly but cute -- a line of variant Uglydolls has shown up, all in black with grey accents (mostly). Regular, mini and keychain size. Sooo cute! I can't find anything online about them, but here's a few that Emily knocked on the floor yesterday:

Aha! Turns out they were San Diego exclusives. I guess the leftovers got shipped out randomly. Good thing we grabbed a ninja Wage for Em and ninja OX for us. I want a ninja Icebat though!!

baby playlist

Last week we took a very short but much needed vacation, and one of the things I did to get ready was to make a special playlist on the iPod of Emily-approved songs; bouncy stuff, garage rock, some of the big band stuff she likes. And by the 2nd day, she was asking for her 3 favorite songs, over and over (and yes, over).

They were:

"Everybody Monkey" by Freddie Cannon (or, as I like to say, "Freddie BOOM! BOOM! Cannon")

"Gorilla" by The Shandells

"Don't Take it Away" from Yo Gabba Gabba! (See the clip here)

I realize one day it'll be all Cheetah Girls or Devo 2.0 but for now...whew! At least we can take it. And later...well, I think headphones will work out just fine.

puchi love!!

Some of you may remember my posting about Re-ment miniature food & housewares some time ago, or have seen photos of some of my collection, or, if you're really old-school, have known for ages about my obsession with miniature (fake) food. Whatever the case may be, it should come as no surprise that I am giddy, I tell you, giddy, over the news that Re-ment is launching here in the US! Offerings appear to be remixes of the original Japanese lines, I'm spotting bits and pieces from all over the series in the sets they're previewing. No news on when and where they will be selling them, but I'm ready to line up right now!
