I HEART TARGET

At 2:00pm yesterday I entered the parking garage of the Target on the corner of La Brea and Santa Monica. At 2:36pm I exited said parking garage, having never left my car. The line for the parking validation machine was 20 people deep. I don't do well with crowds, and Christmas crowds are a little glimpse of Hell.

I ditched the shopping idea and hit up Pinkberry. However, I did return to Target at 10:30pm and exited said Target at 10:51pm, but this time with exactly what I needed. Twenty one minutes of pure shopping pleasure. I picked up the following items for my little nephews:

-Super Mario 8 for Wii (I'd like to add that my brother stood in line from 3am - 8am in the freezing cold Pittsburgh weather to purchase the Wii, he's in the running for Dad of the Year)

-Moonsand!!!!! Apparently this stuff is like play dough but better. It's a weird sand substance that never dries out and can be molded and whatnot. I had to stuff the Moon Sand Adventure Island in the back of my closet so as not to be overcome by my desire to open it up and make little monkeys for hours on end. I've already created a Monkey Island in my head. I'm going to make purple ones, blue ones, and yellow ones . . . . then I can make crazy mixed color ones that will be the Master Monkeys (they will have helmets and wear dusters). The Master Monkeys will be able to kick the subordinate monkeys off the island. I might even work in some kind of lesson on communism for my 3 year old nephew. This might be the best Christmas ever.

Well, if your nephew does something really bad before Christmas your brother stands to make $9000:

I go past that Target twice every day and am a little bit obsessed with it. I basically can't go in there, ever, or all my money will be spent.

Moon Sand! I suggest you make red monkeys and have those monkeys be the "bad monkeys". Then at the end, when they have been kicked off the island, you can tell your nephews that its better to be dead than red. Oh, and you should sing "Proud to be an American". Yeah! Good Christmas lesson.

countessian - resist as long as you can, Target has sucked up countless paychecks.

D - This particular kit doesn't come with red, but I'm not opposed to buying some extra.

Oh, Dahoud, you break my heart. I can't wait to buy my very own Adventure Island and create Utopia ruled by pink elephants.
