Should be sleeping... [Jul. 27th, 2005|12:42 am]

Another busy day. I managed to stop by Wal*Mart during my lunch break. I had to pick up a package (work related, not ponies) and the Wal*Mart is really close to the post office. And, to my amazement, they had heaps and heaps of ponies...all of the first release Sunny Scents and Dream Designs and even the Hidden Treasure pegasus. You should have seen me sniffing all of the ponies. I wanted to buy them all!
*pauses for dramatic effect*
But I didn't. ^_^ I only got one pony and that was Coconut Grove. She smells like suntan lotion.
Ugh, I'm such a pony addict. I don't have room for more ponies and I just kept thinking about going back and buying more of them. Argh!

On a different topic, I bought a coffee grinder. It seemed pretty expensive to me - $20 at Wally World. The coffee makers were just a little over $10. How could the grinder cost more? *scratches head* Also, I've always wanted a coffee maker with a timer, so I could wake up to freshly brewed coffee. So, I went to Amazon.com to look at coffee maker reviews. And...I ended up buying one with a built in grinder too! There was a great deal on a factory-refurbished Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffee Maker that I couldn't pass up. It had free shipping and it was only $10 more than the grinder! Whooohoo!

They also had a great deal on a small capacity ice cream maker. Now, I know I don't NEED one, but I've always wanted one of these. *dreams of custom flavors like lychee raspberry sorbet and malt chocolate chip* More about my ice cream experiments when the thing arrives. ^_~

I'm such a gadget fiend! ^_^

Ugh...I think they're sold out of the coffee makers. =( They haven't shipped the item yet & it disappeared from my account.

=( I'm sure you can find one in a store near you though...then you wouldn't have to pay for/wait for shipping!

It's going to cost a lot more, though. Amazon updated my order; now it says I'll get the coffee maker on August 3rd or 4th. Weird. I'll post a review once I get the thing. ^_^

Yay for gadget shopping!

Coconut Grove's the one with wings, right? If so, she's adorable. If not, well, I'm sure she's still cute.

And you think you've got it bad? I live in a *dorm* room. I have ponies still in boxes piled high on a shelf because I keep thinking I'll open them and set them up as a nice display...as soon as I get a nice display space.

Yes, Coconut Grove is the purplish-pink pegasus. She's very cute. It almost looks like she's ready to take off & fly. ^_^

LOL, I used to live in a tiny apartment with 600 ponies. I freaked out all of my guests, because I didn't have any space to hide the ponies. The ponies were everywhere!

Re: ice cream machine

Ooooohh...lucky you! I'm still waiting for my ice cream machine. However, I don't have any room in my freezer right now, so maybe that's a good thing that it's not here yet. =)

Let me know how your experiments turn out!
