So I guess from now on if I have any ramblings, I'll add a + ramblings to these blog titles. that way, for those of you who enjoy my ramblings, you won't be disappointed to read "no ramblings today blah blah blah." Also, anyone got a better word then ramblings? I wish I could think of something more graceful.  I'll call the arktemplations for now.
Anyway, I was going to type up yesterday's ramblings today, but I'll save them for tomorrow because I have a much better one for today, today.......weird sentence. I was at the Universal City Walk today:

Inside a vintage toystore, I discovered a smoking robot:
That's right. This is the robot that DTOID licensed. It's a toy from the 1950s.
Now keep in mind, this is not a 1950's original. Those things go for like 1500+ dollars. This is a limited remake (they didn't make many of these either), made more or less exactly like the original, and still very rare. These go for about 80-150 dollars (or if you're lucky you might get it for like 50, but 80 is the norm).
It was there. It was staring at me. I had to do it. I know I would never live it down if I pass it up. So I did it.
I bought the thing, cause it just had to be done.
