I typically ignore store employees except for cashiers, who I have to at least say hello to. I get the feeling that some employees hate collectors, but after seeing a feeding frenzy of Hot Wheels a couple weeks back, I honestly can't blame them.

I'm cutting down on hunting, because soon the Christmas season starts, and I really hate hunting then with all the accusory stares from the folks MisterPL mentioned.  Strange folk they are...

I'll take an elderly person's cart to the corral. I'd hate to see them get hit by some jackass on his/her cell phone.

I think for me it's the lack of figures from the OT. I know next year holds much pleasantness for OT fans, but I won't be able to buy as much, if anything. Oh, poor me.
That and I'm getting kind of burned out in all my collections, what with shortpacks, chase figures, distribution, and assurchin toy store employees.

That could be true too, because TTT didn't win it either. If ROTK doesn't win, then you know the Academy has it in for Peter Jackson and LOTR. And pretty much every other person who isn't an Academy voter.

I think they're staying away from fast-food tie-ins, because they think the BK toys cost FOTR the Best Picture Oscar.

Oh, stupid me. But this is still great news!

The one good thing about living in a small city is that there is rarely gridlock. When (if ever) I get to L.A., I'm selling my Hyundai because I don't think I'd handle the traffic all that well.

Neato, huh? Moore cans his line, Sideshow resurrects theirs. Go figure.

Can't wait for evil ol' Captain Peroxide himself, Spike!

This company just doesn't learn. Formulaic screwheads.

Oh well. Looks like I get to save money, because this isn't going to last much longer.

Man, this guy was harsh in those movies.

RIP Mr. Bronson.

Going for a big bike ride today, looking at 30 miles or more.

Shockingly, I've not had one drop of alcohol this entire holiday. Sometimes I amaze even myself. :)

Ooooh, American Strat. Wow.

Nice axe. Makes me want to get rid of my POS Squier Strat for one. ;)

I also wonder if TB will be making a Mouth of Sauron figure, but I'm not sure if this even appears in the movie.

I always thought it was pretty lame of TB to release an Elrond in his Prolugue getup. He looked funny alongside the first three series of FOTR figs.

The last time I threw up was early November 1st of last year. We had a huge party for Halloween. Well, all of the liquor didn't get drank, so it our drink-induced idiocy, we started randomly mixing them all together and calling it Dragonpiss. We didn't think that this could possibly be lethal, but we were all throwing up within 20 minutes. You've never seen a sight like 10 people throwing up at the same time at 4 AM. In costumes, no less.
