The Star Wars Toy Quest Continues…

Well, the QUEST for new Star Wars Stuff is on…. the day began with what Darth Vader has for breakfast: Breakfast of Sith… Contemplating the Dark Side of Pop Tarts… Next, I managed to find the SNEAK PREVIEW figures… there were 4, but I proved NOT to be weak-minded, and only got one: Why are the bad guys always so cool? Still looking for someone to go with me on Frday night…

Target WEAK in the Force!

OK, I went to Target, and found them to be very weak in the force. None of the employees even knew about the online ads and there was very little Star Wars stuff, and what there was (2 items) were few in number and spread out. I did pick up 2 big bags of M&M’s and a box of Pop Tarts: First Pop Tarts I’ve purchased in YEARS… good marketing works, I guess!The small print is quite funny on most of them: TO DOOKU: Watch where you’re pointin’ that things! TO TROOPER: A little round for a Stormtrooper, aren’t you?MORE EXCITING NEWS: I will be going to the MIDNIGHT TOYS R US OPENING in Vernon Hills on Friday, April 1st! I did this for Episode I and it was a TON of FUN! Not sure if this one will be the same, but at the first one (they didn’t do this for Episode II) I got there at 10 p.m. and 15th in line. By midnight there were HUNDREDS of people in line, ALL MEN (except for 2 brave women). I was only going to buy a few items, but when the doors opened I almost got stampeeded! I tried…

Will You Fall for the Jedi Mind Trick!?

OK, this was just tooo funny. Blantant marketing, but so blantant, it was fun. Click on the Image. To send the link to friends (or foes) copy and paste this: http://target.com/target_group/stores_services/starwars.jhtml?page=1&product=1 BE SURE TO CLICK ‘NO’ ON THE FINAL SCREEN: I like the legal disclaimer… can you hear that in Darth’s voice?Of course, I will be going to Target for lunch today!! Weak Minded I must be!

Taking Over Culvers – Part 2!

Sunday afternoon, and another chance to put ‘relational ministry’ into practise… that’s just my excuse for going out to lunch with a bunch of goofball kids (and their parents) Not pictured: The well balanced meal before the ice cream! Also not pictured: All the grown ups at the ‘adult’ table. Well, it was back to Culvers after church this Sunday! And guess what? The manager noticed we were back, and instead of throwing us out, offered us VIP cards for discounts in the future! So I guess I got my scheme, er, wish, without asking! (see Culvers post below) It was only a matter of time before I got ice cream on my shirt, and pants, and shoe! and I didn’t even order any! Few things in life are better than being out to lunch with a bunch of silly kids – where do they get the energy? I needed an hour long nap afterwards! Remember that verse in the Bible about ‘ol log eye?’ Ahhh Matie! It’s fun to goof around, but it’s also fun telling stories and sneakin’ in little mini-life lessons as they beg for me to tell more stories… Ouch! I also discovered why I’ve been…

The Cure for Blog Addiction…

OR maybe the title should be simply, “I can’t sleep!” Maybe it’s from all the travel and low sleep at CPC, maybe it is the slight cough I’m fighting, maybe it’s staying out tooooo late with the Aussie’s the other night (post still coming!), or maybe I am just living out the verse I often claim as my life verse, Allow no sleep to your eyes, No slumber to your eyelids. Proverbs 6:4 But whatever the reason, the result is the same: I CAN’T SLEEP, and when I do drift off I’m dreaming about my blog! (I need help, and It’s all Tannerman’s fault!) I have to be up early in the morning for church, and have a zillion things to do, but I’ve been laying here for what seems like ages. If I wake up and missed Sunday, it won’t surprise me. (But it sure will those at church…. like my boss!)So, I decided to test a theory. They say if you can’t stop thinking about something, just do it, and get it out of your system. Well, for many things, that isn’t possible – which is why you dream about them in the first place (No bad thoughts…
