Yes, some this week's iPhone pictures are a little odd.
A few days ago, Rebecca and I went to Walmart to cover a gaping hole in her car's dashboard. Yes, somebody broke into her car and stole her stereo. Yes, this happened near Baylor, not A&M. :)
Anyway, we went to Walmart. Every time I go to a store, I usually insist that we visit the toy aisle. It's just so entertaining to see what bizarre toys they're selling these days. Two toys in particular caught my eye. Here is the first toy. It's supposed to be a sad-looking puppy. I suppose sad puppies are fun to play with these days?
However, those dark, thick eyebrows and the circles under the puppy's eyes didn't do much other than scare me.
One thing I noticed about this puppy was that it wasn't very cuddly. It was about the size of the average stuffed animal, but it was made out of plastic. How are you supposed to hold and comfort a plastic puppy?
I don't know... I'm not convinced I would have ever wanted a toy that looked like this when I was a little girl.
This next toy made me literally facepalm the moment I saw it.
A Justin Bieber doll? Really?
And if you poke his belly, he'll even sing to you.
The doll is wearing "Real Fashion from His Performance," which is interesting.
To be honest, I would be incredibly creeped out if I knew that stores were selling little doll-versions of me that would sing if you poked their belly and that wore clothes I actually owned.
The tag says it's from "JB Performance Collection." I wonder if that means there are more of these dolls out there, wearing different outfits and singing different Justin Bieber songs.
I wonder if Justin Bieber has a shelf of dolls that look like him in his house.
This next picture is of all the mail I got the other day. My family has been great about sending me mail at least once a week. I usually get three or four letters a week, which has been so nice. Every time I get a letter in the mail, my day is instantly made. I walk down the hall, carrying my envelope or package, with a huge smile on my face.
I love mail.
The other day, I happened to get four letters in the mail. One contained a book from my Grandma Marcia, one contained a little package and a letter from Naana, one contained a letter from my mom, and one contained a letter from Ali.
When I opened my mailbox and saw that it was stuffed with mail, I immediately thought, "Oh wow, everyone must have gotten something today. I wonder if any of it is mine." When I saw that it was all mine, I couldn't stop smiling.
Finally, these are the awesome house shoes my sister Amy brought for me when she came and visited a couple of weeks ago. How sweet of her, right?
They look like giant sneakers. Aggie sneakers, which makes them even better.
Yeah, I do wear them all the time. :)
