Sometimes, People Are Awesome



Do you remember a few weeks ago when I told you all about my frustration in trying to get Mini-Me any more pieces to his latest Must-Have toy, “Zhu Zhu Pets”?

Of course you do. You all hang on every word I say.

Well, when I put out a plea to you all to see if anyone out there in the cyberverse could find any of these rascally toys for me, I really didn’t expect any of you to actually take me up on it.

Leave it to you guys to prove me wrong.

For yesterday what should I spy, with my little eye, upon my front stoop but a lovely package, all boxed up in birthday decorations?

Inside, is this…



This INSANELY thoughtful gift was sent to me by that sexy little minx Shania, who's avatar is the one listed above, from Craving Silence.

Can you believe that? How unbelievably nice does someone have to be, to go out of their way to do something so wonderful for a complete and utter stranger? It really blows my mind, and quite frankly, humbles me.

Mini-Me’s birthday is this Sunday, and he is going to absolutely flip. I quickly hid the package when it came, so he has NO clue that come this Sunday he will be in Zhu-Zhu heaven.

Shania, you are a real gem. Please let this shout-out to your awesomeness serve as just a fraction of the amount of cyber love I am sending your way right now.

Seriously, girl. I owe you. Much thanks.

Maybe next week I’ll have mini-me tape his own personal thank you, and I’ll post it here.

I fully realize that such personal messages to just ONE of my millions of readers may bore the rest of you, but screw ya!. When YOU start sending me gifts in the mail, then I’ll start sending some love YOUR way too!

I’m sick of being the only giver in this relationship, yo.

That is pretty awesome! I've yet to even see these Zhu Zhu thingies in the store or on television, but I believe you that they are all the rage.

Hope your little Mine-Me enjoys. Good job Shania!

Awesome, I heard some moms talking about those little critters at the park last week. They were secretly plotting to wipe out Wal-Mart's next shipment together....pure evil, I say! :)

I don;t know about the mini-ME but I am loving my TickleMe Plant. It is a real plant that MOVES when you Tickle It. This is no joke. The leaves instantly fold and even the branches droop. I am getting the party favors for all my friends.

So glad my kid hasn't gotten into those things. I am sure she will, though - like, 1 week before Christmas, D'OH!
Awesome for you, getting gifts for mini me!

Blog friends ARE the best!

Well, I'm blushing again...

I TOLD you the shrine was plenty, you didn't have to post. (but of course, I'm secretly glad you did)
((I'm trying to think of a sneaky way to link it that won't make me look like a braggart))

I hope the little one has a (in the words of Silas) 'the best super duper birfday in the whole world'. Because you just can't beat that.

Awww, I hope your mini-me's birthday is a lot of fun. That was sweet of Shania to send you the zhu zhu pet stuff. But heck if blogging isn't great for networking and stuff exactly like this. Bloggers are the best.

Kaylen said...

It's that easy to get stuff sent to you?? I need to post on my blog all the things I want....like a new set of pans, a boyfriend, a pressure washer, a piece of wall art...
