Sears was where all the good stuff was!  Man, did I love going there.  And to top it off, my mom worked in the toy department - it was like having your own lab for a crack addict. 

The day I will never forget is when I finally saved enough allowance to buy the AT-AT - I remember us waiting outside in the car to pick her up from work and she picked up my AT-AT that I had ordered through the catalogue.  Man, was that the highlite of my childhood as I ripped into that box!

Oh, and stormtripper, don't forget Consumers Distributing.  It was a chain based primarily on catalogue sales.  Many days spent looking through those catalogues, along with the Sears wishbook of course!   8)

Uh, what?   ???

Choice #1 - $100,00 category - Dodge SRT10 - $72,300 CDN
V10 Viper Engine - 500 HP - Incredible good looks, and even available in a Quad Cab to carry the booster seat in the back.  Gotta be somewhat practical, right?  ;)  I've always been a GM guy at heart, but this Dodge is just too purdy. 



Choice #2 - $30,000 category - 1970 Olds 442
Ultimately it would need to be a convertible.  455 Big Block, enough torque to melt the tires in a few seconds.  Some day this will be parked in my garage, but until then, I'll just have to enjoy the scenes in Demolition Man.  Obviously this isn't a new car, but I should still find my dream car for about $30K, hopefully.   :o

I think I've been living in Saskatchewan too long, but I'm actually wanting it to snow.  Now that it is December, the Christmas month, I am now officially allowing it to snow.  :)   Don't get me wrong, I don't want the -40C weather, but -10C with a foot of snow and NO WIND is just fine by me.  Bring it on, baby!

Looks much nicer WITH the missile, eh?   :)
 
Jeff

Absolutely!  Based on DoctorPadawan's unfortunate report that he won't be getting a replacement missile, I think you're pretty fortunate to get this.  Hasbro needs to make up their minds about replacing the missile though, if they're going to do it, it should be for everybody.  They seem to have screwed the pooch in dealing with this whole thing.  I mean, how hard would it be to fire up the mold for a few more missiles?  ???

Few things piss me off more than getting a call from a wrong number, and instead of politely saying "I'm sorry, I've got the wrong number", the person just hangs up.  OK, you got me out of my chair and inconvenienced me, and you can't even apologize for the wrong number.  Ooooh, gets my blood boiling...  >:(

Even distribution of the elements on my food.

Yeah, this isn't exactly rocket science.  And no, this isn't too much to ask for.

Actually, I got a kick out of it, even if I'm still learning who everyone is.  Damn newbie!  I guess Brent's humour just works for me... should I be worried?  :o

  Definitely a millionaire, or a mentally challenged person.  Not sure which...

He must've won the lottery!  How else can you afford to bid like that?   ::)

Of course, who knows what I'd blow my money on if I had big bucks like that.  ;)

Anyone know if this guy went by the name of sofa-king at one time?

Is that a guy on snowtroopers that's trying to sell/trade a bunch of stuff?  I was considering buying some stuff off of him (I've really got nothing to trade), but if you got a bad vibe, then maybe I don't want to.  Sometimes you've just gotta go with your gut feeling on these things.

I was playing with the idea of getting one of these since I've never bought a MR lightsaber, especially at such a good price.  However, I realized that they only ship to the US (us poor Canucks!).  Oh well, must be a sign to save my money for something else!   ;D  So, what should I try and convince the wifey I need...

You guys keep this up and I'm gonna dig out a case of beer, boil a package of noodles and really be back in university.  Cheers!  Time to go watch TV on a 13" screen while sitting on an egg crate.

My busts were shipped very nicely as well.  I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that they are learning from their mistakes.  You can see that these were pretty safe in the bubble wrap and styrofoam pieces.  Two thumbs up here!   :D

Oh, yeah, good stuff!  Of course, we don't have it as often these days, with the wifey on a healthy kick and all.  But the other essential is our lives is KD!  With a 3 year old daughter, what else is there to eat?

OK, you got me on that one Jesse... wha'ts KD?

Sorry Dave, KD = Kraft Dinner, macaroni & cheese!  I've probably eaten it a 1000 times, maybe more.  Man, I miss the days of living on student loans.  Funny thing is, we're still eating it...

And as for turkey HH, we've tried that too.  But it's too dry.  It leaves my Beef loving tastebuds unfulfilled.  But it's still edible at least.
