Sunday Randomness

So I'm all done Christmas shopping. And! They are almost all wrapped! Go me.
Well, there is one thing that I didn't get. My husband gave me a Christmas list a few weeks ago. Mostly books, and movies, and a board game. That he wants me to play with him. Yippee.
Anyway, I ordered all his stuff off of Amazon and I didn't even have to go to the Mall. Not that I go to the Mall. I avoid the Mall like the plague. Especially this time of year. So I thought I was good to go, as far as shopping for him. Until last weekend. We're watching T.V. and all of a sudden he turns to me and says "I think I want a Wii for Christmas". At first I'm like "A what? A who?" "A Wii", he says. You know, the gaming system". "Ohhhhhh......that. "Are you kidding me? It's like, 22 days before Christmas. There is no way I will be able to score one of those. Are you crazy?" I said(Or something a little more empathetic. I can't remember exactly) I have looked online, but there is not a Wii to be found(Heh. I like saying it. Wii. Heh Heh.) So if anyone knows where I can get a Wii(for less than $500. Seriously. $500? Give me a break), please do share. I told him not to get his hopes up too much. Why, oh why, can't men plan ahead like we do? Why?

Speaking of Christmas presents, yesterday I went to the mailbox and found this:

Is she not the cutest? Her name is Luo Pan, which is "Hope" in Chinese. Pan Pan for short. I ordered her four months ago, but when I didn't receive her and my check didn't clear I thought my order had either gotten lost in the mail or I was too late in ordering(they are numbered and only a certain amount were being made). Imagine my surprise(and delight) when she came in the mail yesterday. I think she will be coming to China with us. And you know I had to buy Gracie one too, because cousins must have matching dollies. They must.

I wish I could tell you where I got her, but it was so long ago I can't remember and all that was on the return address was someone's home address. I do remember that I found out about them through the One Hundred Good Wishes Quilt group I belong to.

Goo luck on the Wii. I have been in stores that are holding drawings for the right to purchase the limited number they are expecting.

Good luck on finding the Wii. Stores around here are advertising them for aroun $300 (I think), but I have no idea if they have any in stock.

Love the doll!
