I want to be a Toys R Us kid... :P  
Mark & I spent the morning in the midst of a huge crowd of children. :) And I love children, but somehow they make Mark a little uneasy - so the morning wasn't the most comfortable for him. :( We had to go to Toys R Us to buy a gift for my co-worker's son whose 2nd birthday party is next weekend. I had absolutely NO clue what to buy and Mark was no help whatsoever! I told him, "At least you were a two year old boy once!" :) One would think he'd have the advantage there... ;)

While we were there - I was shocked at the kinds of toys available to children these days! I may just have been out of the "toy loop" for a while, but man - I would've gone nuts as a child in today's toy store. All we had in our day were Barbie's, lego, lincoln logs, pick up sticks, and Mr. Potato Head... which BTW, I was glad to see they still have around, just fancier, more current versions. We ended up buying a demolition set from Fisher Price that looked pretty cool. The box said "assembly required" - my poor co-worker will probably be busy assembling toys for days after the party...I can just see it already. :)

Later we went to Borders (Ah, kananigirl, I just saw the coupon now,...Drat!) :( so I could find a book on understanding Flash (wonder why??) :P Speaking of which, no news - from either front on this whole Kevin thing. :(

Tomorrow we have a brunch with the in-laws. Mark's Aunt & Uncle from California are here and it'll be nice to see them again. All this eating I've been doing recently can't be good though - and it continues since Mark's birthday is next week and I know there will be a whole lot of eating then too! :P

On a theatre note: The "Little Shop Of Horrors" website is finally up again, I guess. And DRAT! For those of you in NYC, or at least on the East Coast, I envy you! $50 preview tickets if you order by August 28th?? Sometimes I hate living all the way out here... :P

Awwwwww, I was hoping you'd get to use that coupon. I figure I'd put it up since it's only for this weekend.

I wanted to get that Photoshop Wow 7 book, which is almost $50. I think I'll wait though and go on Amazon.com and order it for way less in the Used section.

I was thinking I'd get either Nine or Man of La Mancha cd with Brian...

Btw, I LOVE that Side Show song you're listening to.

Thanks so much for posting it though! :) I printed it and I may go back to Borders today after my brunch! Thanks so much! :)

And I have to say, those Photoshop are pretty expensive! :( Maybe Amazon would be a better place to look for them (especially since your track record with them has been much better than mine!) ;) And Nine is a good choice, as is Man of La Mancha - BSM - woo, what a voice! :)

"Who Will Love Me As I Am?" is one of my favorite songs from Side Show! :) *sigh* I miss the LA cast!!! :(

Toys are seriously SO fun! I love toys!

I have actually gone to Toys R Us and bought toys for me! LOL

I have a small little thing that kids can ride around on, its a dolphin... on my patio. I love toys! I have about 10 board games too - including Chutes and Ladders which is purely a kids game. You cant ever have too many toys - even as an adult. LOL

I might have to go get a Mr Potatoe head doll. Those rocked! I can only imagine what they have out these days! Oooh, when I have extra money (which will be never) LOL Im going on a toy spree!!!!

Ah! I remember Chutes & Ladders! I loved that game! And I had Candyland too! :) And I agree - you can never have too many toys. :) I'll have to go back to Toys R Us again and just look around. :) I wish we had an FAO Schwartz here! :(

Toys are cool. I used to like Toys "R" Us a lot more when they actually displayed the toys where you could find them. Now the store layout is so whack. :P I hope the rest of your weekend goes well. :)

We had a hard time figuring out where everything was in our store too - I thought it was just our location. :P It was fun looking at all the toys that we used to have - modernized! :) Hope you have a nice rest of your weekend as well! :)

The toys out there are unreal these days. I had no idea until we had Cameron, since he's really the only child in our life.

You can never go wrong with anything Fisher Price!

I know! I was shocked to find toy cell phones that rang and toy pagers that beeped - there were even toy PDAs! All we had were little EZ-bake ovens that baked things with a high wattage light bulb! :) Times have sure changed! :)
