 Ummmm...yeah.  I really shouldn't be allowed to shop without a chaperone.

I had to birthday shop for two boys.  "Z", my best bud's son, and "E", my cousin's son.  
*Initials used to protect the innocent, hee hee*



I couldn't resist looking at the Matchbox cars (and other brands) whilst in the store(s).  
Stop looking at me like that!

*sigh*  I bought myself FOUR.
1.  1966 Karmann Ghia (Remember?  Before Metallicar, this is the one I dreamed of)
2.  1966 Batmobile (Yes, from the tv series...POW!  BLAM!  ZAP!)
3.  1964 IMPALA!!!!!!!  (No, I do NOT care that it's the wrong year and a 2-door)
4.  1968 IMPALA!!!!!!!  (No, I do NOT care that it's the wrong year and a 2-door...and a convertible)
 
*at least it's BLACK!*

I spent more time combing through the cars looking for Impalas than shopping for the gifts.  

Does that make me a bad person?  

Oh yeah...I bought myself a new watch too.  It's silver and has turquoise stones on it.  Gee...I wonder why it caught my eye?!  *giggle*

Hee..I see nothing wrong with that! Last year while shopping for a b-day present for a friends little boy I saw a little black matchbox car that looked enough like the Impala that I bought it for myself! Of course being the bargain shopper that I am I got it for only 25 cents!

Pictures of the Matchbox cars, please.

I think of all the icons I've made, that one is my favorite.

I go digging through all the cars every time I'm in the toy section. My family just gives up and helps me now. :)

Yeah, I don't think you'll find much mocking from this group really. Probably more jealousy for finding even look alike cars (I keep looking and looking...)

What's wrong with that ? I don't see why you would need a chaperone.

Those are very normal buys !!! Wish I add those 2 impalas (jealous, a little)

I promise to return!!
I have to go visit my best buds & give "Z" his gift. Tomorrow, I'm off to visit the cousins & give "E" his gift.

I'll try to reply more later tonight or tomorrow...maybe even with pics of my new acquisitions!

Toodles!
