Ryan has a posse!

Yesterday we went to Dunkin' Donuts for donuts and coffee and outside the store were those little candy vending machines, and inside one of them were Homies figurines for fifty cents. A friend from Philly had mentioned these to me before and they looked really cool -- plus they reminded me of M.U.S.C.L.E. which I loved growing up. So I got two and took them home. Now I have a posse!

Today I wanted to go back and get more. A bigger posse is better. So we got to the Dunkin' Donuts and, alas, alack, the vending machine was out of order. I haven't seen them anywhere else, and I even checked with a local toy store and they didn't know where to find them. Bummer.

But we did do some fun shopping today. I got a nice pair of khaki cargo pants and two really soft long-sleeve tees from Old Navy, and a new lamp for our living room from Target. The clothes are really nice. I finally have some comfortable pants that aren't blue jeans!

Anyway, I want more Homies. And preferably not from online retailers who are trying to charge a buck apiece plus shipping per.

I feel REALLY bad for Bess Eaton... = ( ....I like Bess Eaton better...Dunkin' Donuts coffee tends to be too watery...and Bess Eaton doesnt exist in NY - so it's a nice change...

*I hope Bess Eaton doesn't close!!!*

hmmmm...you know what? that's something I'm looking forward to when I'm married...waking up on weekends and going out and picking stuff up together and eating breakfast together in the kitchen...so simple - yet awesome...

lol - I did go into Dunkin' Donuts the other day though to get a Coollatta - but the machine was broken = (

Bess Eaton gets most of my business, anyway. There's one about halfway to work, and I stop there most mornings and get a large coffee to start my day. Just about everyone who works there recognises me now and several of them have my order memorised. It's pretty funny. :)

I even gave them a Christmas card!

LOL - that's great!!!! that's the way my Mom is with the people at Starbucks...
but she only gets a regular coffee - nothing fancy...it's only about 10 cents more than everywhere else - but they truly do make the best coffee in the world!!! hehe...I love Starbucks !!! = )
I've never been on a first name basis with anyone though Ive always wanted to ... lol - I always thought that was rather cool....
