Charitable Donation

Today I took part in a silent auction with the proceeds to benefit the Hurricane Katrina victims. I bid on a bunch of stuff, but came away with two incredible deals. Now, I didn't come to work with the intention of buying anything other than lunch from the cafe or maybe a snack from the convenience store. I've been good about staying true to my monthly budget for the most part, but today changed things... a lil' bit. After it was all said and done, I ended up hittin' up the ATM machine twice. However, with the things that I got today, I can stash a lot of it away til Christmas. Anyway, this is what I ended up buying:

Package #1 - a bunch of stuff is for my nieces

a Dora the Explorer doll
set of various 15 Nick jr. DVD's
pair of girls sneakers
a Furby
Candyland DVD game
2 large photo albums
set of 5 Disney Bear in the Big Blue House DVD's
Toy Story Collectors Edition
some stuffed animals
kids learning stuff

…………..All for $50!!!!!

Package #2 - a bunch of stuff for me

DVD sets of:

227 – First Season
What’s Happenin’ – Third Season
Good Times – Third Season
A-Team – Second Season
Ren & Stimpy – Fifth Season
Garfield & Friends – Third and Fourth Seasons
Diff’rent Strokes – First Season

Individual DVD’s:

Spongebob Favorites DVD
Don’t be a Menace in South Central DVD


Atari Classics – 80 Games for PC
50 Cent’s Biography – From Pieces to Weight – Book

…………..All for $63!!!!!

oh yeah I almost forgot the one thing that I really wanted... well sorta... being that I collect sports figurines and bobblehead dolls, I decided to add one of the slickest cats in the entertainment biz to my entourage...

the second auction package that I purchased also included a Snoop Dogg bobblehead doll... lol

(I know... I know... I look thrilled sitting at my desk right??? lol)

speaking of the Doggfather himself I got one more thing to say before I go... I'm gonna leave you with one of my favorite corny jokes...

Why does Snoop Dogg walk around with an umbrella?

(scroll down for the answer)

Answer: Fo' Drizzle!!!!!
