(no subject)

My restored Teddy Ruxpin and Grubby are here at last! I've wanted a Grubby for almost as long as I can remember. Now I finally have him, and he's perfect! XDDD

Included in the package was a photo-documentary of their restoration...a personalized, individual history of each of the toys. And it's bloody amazing! ^_^ These two have been through a lot.

Grubby (from Florida) had a badly damaged circuit board from the time he was manufactured, and had his neck broken at some point which damaged more wires. Teddy (from Italy!) just about had to be rebuilt from scratch! Missing his upper jaw, broken neck, foam skull and belly just saturated with mold and battery acid. Poor little guy had even been in a fire! Then he was uncerimoniously thrown away. Someone rescued him from the trash along with two other Teddys and shipped them off to Dr. Eeyore, to be traded for a Mother Goose.

Lovingly repaired, Teddy and Grubby are finally home. Picspam to follow.

PICSPAM UPDATE: -_-;; Click on the pics to see the whole thing.

SCORE!!!


This has got to be the best find I've ever made at the flea market. Anyone else remember this guy? 


He was worth every penny, even though he doesn't work too terribly well anymore. (This thing's more than twenty years old...it's amazing that he still works at all!) I must admit, I shed a happy tear or two when this Teddy blinked at me and said "Come dream with me tonight..." ^_^
 

This one will enjoy a quiet retirement as a display piece, and photography model. I'm in the process of buying a fully restored Teddy and Grubby pair to play the tapes I've started collecting again.

EDIT 10/03/09: My restored Teddy and Grubby will soon be on their way!

 
The wonderful Doctor Eeyore is in Florida for two weeks, so these two will get shipped out when she gets back. I wish her a safe trip, and a speedy recovery from a relatively minor yet quite unfortunate accident.

Another strange, yet amazing thing happened with the flea market Teddy too...he's working perfectly now! At first he would really struggle to finish the tape, and his eyes and mouth would twitch pretty badly when he wasn't talking. I thought for sure he had servo motor problems, and possibly a dying tape player motor/drive belt. He's totally fine now! He can finish the tape smoothly now, and his eyes and mouth hardly twitch at all. Maybe all he needed was a good workout to get all his parts moving again. Maybe he wasn't satisfied with just being a display piece. ^_^

Oh darn...I'll have TWO functioning Teddy Ruxpins! XD

Gamefe(a)st!

I've been on a game buying spree lately. I just polished off Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, with all of the crests and most of the badges. (I made sure I got all of the Quidditch and Potions badges, but some of the Dueling badges were just taking too damn long so I didn't bother.) Potion making on the Wii is way too much fun. ^_^

Which brings me to my next two games...tonight I ordered Cooking Mama, and started on Hell's Kitchen. Are we noticing a theme here? ;)

Hell's Kitchen recieved some pretty crappy reviews, but I just couldn't pass up the bundle when I saw it. You know that Wii Sports bundle that comes with the tennis racket, golf club, and baseball bat wiimote attachments? It's just like that, but with cooking utensils. XDD Now I can get yelled at by a virtual Gordon Ramsay whenever I want. lol! (And I've unlocked some recipies that I want to try!) I've been able to keep him pretty happy so far, but it's bound to get way more chaotic.

On a non-food related note, I FINALLY hid my geocache last weekend. www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx It doesn't have many hits on it yet, but the first-to-find prize went safely on the first night and that's what I really wanted. I already have an idea for another cache, but first I need to find a good place to hide an ammo crate. o_O

Go figure...

My sweetie's been working on quitting smoking, and he's put in a monumental effort this weekend. I can count on one hand how many cigarettes he's had in the last two days. I'm so proud! ^_^

There's a down side that I wasn't expecting, however. (Don't get me wrong, it's a small price to pay.) Now I've got a massive nicotine withdrawal headache.

Gone Stampeding

omg...seriously...*drool*...deep fried oreos...

The Stampede kicked off today, so I went down after work and ate til I blew up. XD Deep fried oreo cookies are FUCKING AMAZING. Then they go and cover them with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar...*mops drool off keyboard*

In between stuffing my face, I went to the barns to pet some horses before they got sick of all the attention, and checked out the games. (Just looking, not playing. I swore off the games after I finally won the big one.) Naturally, the ridiculously rigged games had the best prizes...giant adorable Pikachus, Chimchars, Piplups, and Turtwigs, but this one booth stopped me dead in my tracks just to make sure I was seeing this right.

Stuffed Barack Obamas. I laughed my ass off. That was the coolest prize I've ever seen. It's even kinda cute!

I did something a tad out of character down there too...I went and got an airbrush tattoo! For the next week or so, I have a cool little blue/green dragon on my lower back. ^_^

I'm still debating whether or not I want to haul my carcass out of bed early tomorrow morning for a free pancake breakfast at the mall.
