Mike, Thom, and Waple may remember that for my bday last year we went to a restaurant right by Mike's apartment, and it had the little vending machines with toys, and one of the toys I got was Winnie the Pooh inside of a hippo. While generally I'm not a huge fan of winnie the pooh, I loooove him when he's inside of other animals, it's so freakin cute! I always wanted to go back and collect all the other animals, but schaumburg is just so far! Well, tonight I just happened to be getting ice cream with my bff Mark when we got into a discussion about vending machine toys, and of course I had my pooh-in-a-hippo with me (I always carry it in my purse just in case of emergencies) so I whipped it out and showed it to him. After we finished our peppermint stick icecream we went over to the vending machine area to get some bouncey balls, when much to my excitement we discovered that right next to the bouncey ball machine was a pooh machine!!! Only instead of pooh inside animals it was pooh inside of garden related things, like flowers and butterflies and mushrooms and bugs and even a GARDEN GNOME!!!!! Being a collinsite I naturally wanted the gnome, so I spent all my quarters and ended up with pooh-in-a-butterfly and pooh-in-an-ant. So that's my new mission, I am going to get that damn gnome. If anyone wants to donate quarters to the cause, you all have my address. Or Mike, if you happen to be dining in that lovely restaurant again and see pooh in something cute, please get him for me. Thanks.
By the way, my bday is coming up shortly and I will be turning 25, not 5. Just wanted to make that clear.
