Christmas in July in August (Pt. 2)

Last week I talked about a package that our good friend Raka of Lance and Eskimo Message Board fame sent me. I emailed him asking him for some free Pillsbury products and I got a little more than I bargained for. This is the conclusion of the things I found in that lovely box.

Doughboy Dolls

Pillsbury Doughboy Dolls

Raka sent me no fewer than seven (7) Pillsbury Doughboy Dolls. They all look a lot more like Tom Bosley than the Pillsbury Doughboy, but they're precious nonetheless. There's one big doll and a bunch of smaller beanie baby type dolls.

Plans: I will divide them amongst the brothers but I will keep the big one because he's the coolest.

Plastic Case

Plastic Case

It looks like a soap container but its got all these weird parts and it's much too big. It says "VWF Scientific Products" on the cover but it doesn't look that scientific.

Plans: I'd better find something scientific to do with it

Pewter Figure

Pewter Soldier Man

When I opened up the plastic case I found this little pewter soldier hiding. According to the bottom he is a "Command & conquer Tiberian Sun collector's Edition Nod Soldier." This didn't answer any questions that I had about the soldier.

Plans: I'll offer this one to Jacques, it seems about his speed.

DSL Connector

DSL/Ethernet Connector

Um. It's the end of a DSL or Ethernet Cable.

Plans: I will put this in my drawer that has screws and glue and wood pegs and broken plugs and other useless things that I refuse to throw out.

Baby Tee

Pillsbury Baby Tee

Why it's the Pillsbury Doughboy surrounded by colorful stars and such! It looks like he may be casting a spell that's responsible for the colorful shapes that are surrounding him.

Plans: I'll give this one to Eskimo like Raka asked me to. I'm glad because otherwise I'd probably be forced to wear it on wash day.

Ticket Stubs

Final Fantasy Ticket Stubs

It's a collection of ticket stubs from all the times that Raka went to go see the Final Fantasy Movie The Spirits Within. He saw it on July, 12, 15 and 18th.

Plans: I'll pawn these off on Paul or Laura... somehow.

A Mint

A Single Mint

This is a mint like any mint that you will find in pharmacy or super market candy sections.

Plans: I plan on eating it soon.

Database Field Determinations

Database Field Determinations

This is a list of all the field Determinations for the Pillsbury Corporation database. I don't know what that means, but it sounds pretty cool! It's just like the one Raka told us about on the message board so many months ago!

Plans: I'll let Paul have this one. He would probably want to have this piece of Lance and Eskimo history for himself.

Pokeball Candies

Pokeball Candies

Possibly the most disgusting candies I've ever had in my life. They're supposed to be used with the Squirtle candy dispenser I described last time. Since the dispenser was almost impossible to use I just decided to eat one of them sans dispenser. I think Squirtle was fully capable of picking up the candies but was just trying to save me the anguish. They taste kinda like mint flavored Tums except MUCH worse.

Plans: Nothing. I ate them all.

Wallace & Gromit

Wallace & Gromit Video

It's the classic Wallace & Gromit "The Wrong Trousers" Video. Thanks Raka!

Plans: I'll watch this one after I watch "Better off Dead" then put it on my shelf with other classics such as Skyscraper and The Iron Warrior.

Pillsbury Doughboy Frisbees

Pillsbury Doughboy Frisbees

Raka sent me two of these and just in time. Me and Chris play so much frisbee during the summer that we were thinking of getting another frisbee for his house and one for the car so that no matter where we are or if we forget or not we'll always have a frisbee.

Plans: I've never seen any of the other play frisbee so they probably won't be too broken up about this.

Fake Spider

Fake Plastic Spider

It's one of those fake plastic spiders like you see around Halloween time!

Plans: I'll try to cause some mischief with this like putting it in someone's soup or putting it on someone's pillow or something. I don't know. Maybe I'll watch some Dennis the Menace reruns to get some ideas.
