International Toy Fair

The International Toy Fair is set to be in New York City Feb.12th-15th, 2006. All the newest toys will be displayed for distributors and wholesalers alike. The show is NOT open to the general public, but I will try and keep you up on all the news or any exciting toy news! Supposedly Spencer Stanley is going because he works at Kidoodles. Maybe I can get some good news from him. He's a guy I worked with at my retail job. Who knew Kidoodles was so generous to new employees? What a sweet job. Why don't I have a sweet job? Oops...there I go again. Anyway, stay tuned!

Lucy Lawless News

Lucy Lawless, who was Xena, is signed on as a cast member for Battlestar Galactica for the third season. Undoubtedly probably dooming the show to cancellation, but maybe not! The next episode featuring her cylon character will air Feb. 24th. Too bad I don't get cable, thank the Gods for Chuck at work who continuously feeds me Battlestar dvds. If you haven't been watching the new Battlestar Galactica, I suggest you spend your "extra" time doing so! It is the BEST show on television. And definately NOT because of Lucy Lawless. I mean, she's a welcome addition, but she's not why the shows good. Just watch it.

Artistic types have more what?

According to the February 2006 issue of Discover magazine on page 10 under Flash:

"Artistic types have more sex - which may
explain the persistence of schizophrenia in the human population, according to two
British psychologists."

So what does that mean? If we don't get it we go all crazy on people. That sounds about right.
