The Li'l People are Coming! The Li'l People are Coming!


I feel so overwhelmed with bloggy love today! I thought the day couldn't possibly get any better after Quirky gave me a Quombie... and then I learned I won Jules' Best Giveaway Ever!

If you've never met Jules, you should not pass go but go directly to this secret location:


Now, you're probably wondering what would constitute the Best Giveaway Ever. Here's a hint...

What do these things have in common?

An old hag, a cowboy, a dog, a fat kid, a train conductor, a comb over guy and Kanye West.

They're all Little People! And they come in a swell, pink evening bag with a blue plastic handle!


I'm already thinking up bloggy plans for them.

Thanks, Jules! (And thanks to Dingo for pulling my name out of the evening bag.)

Congratulations, because I love that little parade of weirdness. In fact, I'm going to pilfer a few of my kid's Little People right now and set them up on a shelf. I am looking forward to a time when she isn't interested in these things, because I really like them and when I buy her (myself) particularly odd/cute little robots, figurines, japanese do-dads, she quickly loses interest. Until, of course, I try to prop them up somewhere so I can look at them. Anyway, have a blast with your new best friends.

Thanks, K a b l o o e y! I know what you mean about getting your "child" interesting things... like the Playmobil ranch I got for my 40th birthday. We had lots of fun playing cattle rustlers with that.

Nanodance said...

Awesome! This is your week! Can I come over and play with them?

CatLadyLarew said...

Yes, Nanodance, it's definitely my week! I'll let you know when they arrive and we can have a party. (We can serve them their brainz on little tiny plates.)

Quirkyloon said...

That's hilarious! Will their litle brainz be caviar? hee hee

Scott Free said...

Woohoo, Batty Lady! I think I'll call you Batty Lady from now on, do you mind? I hope not, 'cause I like that name.
Little People. Playmobil. Next you'll be playin' with Legos, missus. Have a good Monday.

Vic said...

Congratulations!!! Be sure to invest in a good polish for your new treasures and they'll increase in value over the years.

I kinda really want that dog.

HA! Secret's out! Will be fun to see what you come up with...

CatLadyLarew said...

Quirky: Caviar Brainz for Little People!

Scotty: Batty Lady... I think it works!

Vic: Okay, next time you come over to play, you get to have the dog.

Subtorp: The pressure is on!

The Old Silly said...

Well at least you were politically correct with the "li'l people" thingy - lol. I'll have to check out Jules.

I'm also in this picture, but you can't see me because I'm too short.

CatLadyLarew said...

Silly Man: Do check Jules out! It will be well worth the trip.

moooooog: Can you see me now? *guy in horned rim glasses looks around* Oh, I see you... the pink head poking out behind Kanye... I'm guessing the two of you must hang together a lot.

They are pretty scary. I don't want to get all Stephen king on ya, but I wouldn't have them in the same room where you sleep. No really!!! :(

Summer said...

How fun! Congrats.

IndigoWrath said...

Hey CatLady! Cool toys! We'll have to have a whip round and buy you some Weebles. Remember those guys? Indigo

CatLadyLarew said...

frigginloon: Not to worry... I always lock myself in my bedroom at night.

Summer: Yep, more toys to to while away the hours of my day.

Indigo: Weebles weren't invented yet when I was a kid. That's why I have to live out my childhood dreams all over again... to get the cool stuff.

Jules said...

I TOTALLY cannot wait to see what you um....do.....with these things. Although, I AM a LITTLE scared.........

They will be on their way tomorrow though. I'm sticking them in the box tonight. (Kanye has already expressed his displeasure with the "chosen" box...evidently Beyonce had a better one....)

CatLadyLarew said...

Jules: I'm sure Kanye will give you an opportunity to finish packing the box after he has his say. Thanks!

ReformingGeek said...

Congrats and congrats on the Quombie! Your poem was great.

Toys are so much fun!

Jen said...

Weebles!

CatLadyLarew said...

Reffie: Congrats back at ya!

Jen: Weebles & more Weebles!

Court said...

I'm so jealous. Please take care of my rowdy lil Texan and the bitchy lil Kanye. Maybe we can share them? Ya know like they're mine, but you just keep them at your house?

Congratulations ;)
