The Fail Boat
Soon will be making another run!
The Fail Boat
Promises nothing for anyone!
So, yeah. In summary, Hubs and I took a lovely cruise on the Fail Boat this weekend, thriftily speaking. We went to all of our usual stops, and even went to a smallish flea market as well. Getting out of the car at the flea market, I remarked to Hubs "Geez, I hope it isn't a bunch of Avon stuff and baby clothes."
Here's what we found at the flea market:
1. Avon stuff.
2. Baby clothes.
Maybe in the future I'll learn to keep my big yap shut.
I was really hoping to find some old slides now that I have that keen slide projector, but nothing. There was ONE piece of Tupperware I wanted (I'd never seen it in navy blue before) that would be perfect for keeping my flour in, but it looked like it was used as a sandbox toy, or led some otherwise difficult existence, so I left it there.
There were a couple of other amusing items that I also didn't buy, so I thought I'd share those with you. Because that's the kind of guy I am.

1. Ami! Ami looks to be a friend of Barbie, but I can't be certain. This is the first fashion doll I've seen dressed as an operating-room nurse (I guess? Maybe?) Also, she's compliant! (Click the picture for proof.) She's also comfortable, well-protected, and energetic.
Plus, she's got a great personality. Just watch out when you take the mask off...
2. Weird creature! Don't adjust your monitor--he/she/it really is that color. Why? I do not know. I just take the pictures.
To be honest, I'm not sure what this is supposed to be. To me, it looks like nothing more than the offspring of a human and a hedgehog.
I should totally start buying these things and leave them lying around the house.
3. Bad nose-job bobblehead! This has so much fail I don't even know where to start. There's that nose, for one. It's pretty big even with part of it broken off. How big was it originally??? And that smile. I don't even... Who is this supposed to be? Why does it even exist?
I wanted to buy this and label it "Smile, darn ya, smile!" (extra Internet Points to anyone who gets the reference.)
In order not to leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, I present you with the following totally-unrelated-to-anything-else video. This is now my all-time favorite commercial. I can't figure out who I like best; Janette? Her customer? The bored husband and grandchild? The two gals under the dryers? The sandwich itself?
If anyone out there lives near a Pals, please go there and get one of these and report back.
