    Low: Was tooling around the toy isle at Walmart when I hear this young woman with 2 kids say "You can't have anything made in China it's recalled". I was speechless, but it gets worse. When the kid (mind you this kid was like 8 or 9, not a baby) picked up a toy she goes "No, a child died from lead poisoning".

    Let me tell you, looking at these 2 little Ensteins, lead poisoning wasn't exactly going to do more damage.

    High: Got hooked up with Best Buy Megatron! And big evil was #666 in my collection... actually got it several days ago but I thought it more appropriate to announce on Halloween.

    Low: I have no clue how I'm going to afford Walmart Starscream when it hits this area...

    Highs: I am getting a Hasbro MP Starscream. I had a friend get me one from Springfield, where they were first spotted.

    Lows: I am denied the joy of finding MP SS myself. Eh, not too bad.

    HIGH: Picked up two MP Starscreams last nite, met up with an old friend who I hadn't seen or talked to much in the last 3 or so years.

    LOW: Didn't really get to do much in my Halloween get up, Halloween is done until next year and I only got about 5 hours of sleep, didnt get to shower or brush my teeth today so I'm feeling pretty grungy.
