Twitter Roundup

Twitter Roundup

This entry seems really stupid.

rancor

I should just have a Twitter plugin on the site, but that's too much effort at the moment. Also, you guys could easily follow me on Twitter... but I know that a lot of folks (including myself) don't really get tons of joy from using Twitter, that's why I've taken your advice and created this post. (It's not really super-toy-related. In fact it's a bit too self-important.)

Please note, most of my "tweets" (i cannot believed i just typed that) are filled with random BS, but here are some potentially noteworthy tidbits:

I posted some crummy pics of my desk at work. (These are just 2 detail views. More later I hope.)

I had a craving to go to Toys 'R' Us. I ended up going, but didn't buy anything. I did see this cool Batman set and this shitty Rorschach doll.

I posted some PEEPS that I'd enjoy a lot more than the crappy ones they sell every year at Easter.

I got invited to guest blog on Amazon.com's toy blog, Toy Whimsy. (I'll let you know about that later as I get around to writing something.)

I cursed the fact that Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro are going to star in a new 3 Stooges movie.

I got a cool, weirdo skeleton toy from the same guy who sold me the Underworld Warriors.

I went to a toy show in Charlotte and tried sharing pics. I think people should see the baby doll of Archie Bunker's Grandson.

    $100.00 for those Peeps. I think I would rather spend $100.00
    on something else. Great little post though.

    Is that the Rancor equivalent of a midget?

  3. @ Oldman – Thanks for the kind words. Also, I agree, the peeps are way too pricey.

    @ Shawn – I know! Isn’t he great? I saw him at Toys R Us. He’s in a box set with some other Star Wars Galactic Heroes figures. He was too pricey for my tastes. I’d love to buy him “loose.”
