June 24, 2006 part 1
It’s about 2am; can’t sleep. Ugh. So I’m importing songs to iTunes and putting together the toys from 4 Kinder Surprise eggs I found in the back of my fridge. Not eating the chocolate; it isn’t the best part anyway, but also these are close to two years old. I got them in Ontario when I went on vacation with my family. I don’t think they are available in the States. Actually, the first time I ever had one was in Germany about 20 years ago, so I was happy to see them more recently. They are the same premise as Cracker Jacks: you get a little edible treat and a toy to go along with it. The difference is that these toys are pretty cool; they take some construction and are kind of elaborate. I’ve seen them for sale on eBay and the rarer ones are actually kind of valuable. Go figure.
Anyway, the first one is a little dinosaur that plays basketball.
Importing Pavement: Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.
The second one is a happy, googly-eyed mutant snail thing.
Importing Nine Inch Nails: Pretty Hate Machine.
The third one is a little blue sports car. You know, the way these are constructed is pretty ingenious.
Importing Elton John: Greatest Hits (the volume with Too Low for Zero and Little Jeannie).
The fourth one is a cool-looking bird. This is sweet; usually when you buy multiple Kinder eggs you get a couple of the same toy. I got four different ones.
Importing Pearl Jam: Vs.
Close to 3am now. I wish I were sleeping. Maybe I’ll try again, though I’m not tired even a little bit.
