They were having a sale on stuffies as buy one, get one for $1. There were 3 teenage girls there looking. One had some tacky alien. I told them that if they were going to buy anything, they should buy Duffy. They came over, thought he was the cutest, and commented on how soft he is. The one said, "If I buy one, I can get him for $1?" I said yes. I withheld a comment that she should buy Duffy as her main and the ugly alien for $1.00. Doesn't really make a difference.
"buy the ugly alien for $1.00." LOL but SOOOO true and I didn't even see the "ugly alien".
My Duffy and Shellie May have doppelgangers (extra one of each).
No. That guy is short. The one the girl had was like a bean pole. I just came from watching MU at my daughter's school. I was eying up every skinny character to try to remember if that was the one. We were in a hurry when at the Disney Store, so I didn't put much focus on the alien the girl held.
Duffy got a box via UPS the other day from Quaker Steak & Lube! It was the prize he won in their Halloween costume contest.
Inside the box on top was a bunch of Twizzlers (at the restaurants they give you Twizzlers when they bring you the check).
What else we got in here?
The gift card he also won wasn't in the box though! Contacted Quaker Steak & Lube and they forgot to put it in. They apologized & said they're going to send it out Monday via overnight so we'll get it Tuesday.
Then today my boyfriend & I took the Harley down to Sarasota (about an hour from us) for the afternoon and we brought Duffy with us.
Before crossing the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, we stopped at the park/rest area right before for a quick snack we picked up at Dunkin Donuts.
Wandered around St Armands Circle, which has a bunch of shops (mostly upscale) and restaurants. Had lunch at a place called ChaCha Coconuts. Discovered there's one in St Pete as well (we'd actually been in there visiting the old location at the Pier but never ate there... just cut through to go to the observation deck).
I picked up a few items from BAB today, and Duffy and Shellie May were so excited, they insisted on trying their new outfits on right away. Shellie May was so comfy in her new Christmas jammies that she figured she'd practice for Christmas Eve with a giant mug of hot cocoa. (Luckily for her, I had a Christmas-themed mug in the cupboard that had missed out on storage last year). But just when she went to take a big gulp...
...she realized there was something in her drink.
...It was Duffy's Mickey doll! How did that get there?
Duffy came over to investigate.
It wasn't me, said Duffy. What else is in there?
Was it Tippy Blue?
I know, said Shellie May, it must have been our mischievous elf cousins (my mom's bears). They're so playful and fun.
Then my mom's Little Duffy came out to play, and noticed his big cousins were wearing pajamas, too. Duffy noticed Little Duffy didn't have any slippers to go with his jammies, so Duffy loaned him his own.
Here you go, Little Duffy.
Then things just got really silly...
...when they over-enthusiastically turned Pillow Duffy into an indoor sled.
Duffy absolutely LOVED riding on the Harley. The best part was he didn't have to ride in the backpack. The bag has a strap that goes around your waist too and so I just stuffed him in there and made sure it was tight enough and he rode inbetween me and my boyfriend. Got a few looks as other vehicles passed but it was fun. If someone was paying attention, Duffy would wave at them.
Halloween has come and gone, and Shellie and Duffy are not kitties anymore, but DuffyB got these new kitty ears he just had to try on. I went to the launch party for several new Nintendo games at the Nintendo World store in NYC, and one of them was Super Mario 3D World, and they were giving out these cute furry cat ears. (one of the suits Mario wears in the game is a cat). So...Duffy immediately claimed the ears for himself. He does look pretty adorable.
I hope I'm just having a blind moment (not to be confused with a "blonde moment" since I'm brunette LOL). I am on the Disney store looking to see if they have any new outfits for Duffy and they are NOT selling the 17" Duffy any longer! It's not even in their online catalog. Does anybody know if the 17" standard Duffy that they make costumes for (which by the way, have been lacking in new items lately) is discontinued? Duffy, oh beloved Duffy, where are you ?
