    Another alert from my store, we have Ep 1 Star Wars mousepads now! When I was looking through the pile I saw some Queen Amidala ones, some Pod Racer with Anakin, and one really neat Darth Maul. I'm not going to go all crazy on these like I did with the toys, just giving you all the heads up in case you want 'em - I know Sarah already has one ;)

    Advertising for your store again? :p

    Speaking of advertising, I was watching TV today, and the commercials came on. I see a guy in a uniform that looked like ours picking up a store phone. Then I noticed his tie. The "University of Fresh Obsessed" (I'm not the guy who makes up these names, so don't look at me that way) tie. I thought to myself "Dude! A&P commercial!" He's using the phone to broadcast a message over the PA, but he sounds nervous. I notice the phone he's using is not one of the ones we use at our store. He's telling the customers about our "It's Fresh or it's Free" guarantee. As he finishes, saying "Only at A&P" two employees who are not in A&P uniforms come running toward him. He yells into the phone "A&P! A&P! A&P! A&P! A&P!" and runs out the door. He was in the competitor's store. [face_laugh]

    I have to try that next time I'm in Loblaws. Accidentally knock over a few displays as they chase me out the door, too. :D

    Hey Deb,

    Could you pick me up a Maul mouse pad - they're a buck, right?

    I have an optical mouse and don't really need a mousepad, but, I didn't need Darth Maul Lip Balm, Amidala soap, Anakin shampoo, Qui-Gon pens, etc, etc...

    LOL not advertising, AT_60, I just know that they'll be gone really soon!
    No Matt, these aren't the ones with the calculators - I have one too.
    Adam I'll pick you up the Maul if he's still there since I only saw one there (Yes, $1), if he's not there do you want me to grab you another one?

    I have an optical mouse too, but I still use a mousepad. I find it's just better to slide the mouse across a soft pad than a piece of wood. It slides better, it's quieter, and it's easier on the mouse.

    I need a new mousepad. My current one has cigarette burns and everything else. Do you have any mousepads that arn't Star Wars? My computer is in my room, and I don't want Erin seeing a Star Wars mousepad.

    Yeah, I saw that commercial last week. It was quite humourous. I liked it.

    Which mousepad would you like, Mike, Ani or Ami? There probably won't be any more Darth Mauls ;(
    Yup, Chris..there are a few mousepads - all with different shows or popular phenomenon - Barbie, Southpark, Star Wars, nothing that's normal or plain, I can keep an eye out for you though. I'll be in Friday.

    Well, I suppose I could get a SW one and flip it over when I have company over. ;)

    They show the commercial out in Alberta, Haggis? Surprising, considering you don't have A&P out there.

    hmm, maybe one of each...I should be able to scrounge $3...I hope ;)

    I wonder if someone has made a Fat Albert mousepad...that would be cool.

    If you ever find another Maul, I'm interested. I need to come play in this store, a friend of mine went last weekend (bought me the Amidala pad) and got so much fun stuff!

    Ah Mike... you collect everything don't you!

    now here is a question, if you found Star Wars Chocolate would you, keep it or eat it...

    Two primal emotions coming head to head!

    I still have the Jar Jar tongue candy :)
    Okay so when I go in on Friday, I'm getting:
    Adam: all three
    Mike: whatever I can find
    Sarah: Maul (if there are any left)
    Allison: Ami.

    Did I miss anything?
    (Oh, I should get me one too :) )

    I don't recommend eating it now.

    If you buy all these pads for everyone, Deb, won't your coworkers think you're some sort of SW junkie? (as if anyone would ever think that)

    AT, you're forgetting I bought the store out of those action figures, that was about 30 of them. I'm proud of being a Star Wars junkie! When I started working there, the first two things my coworkers found out about me were (1) I sing as I work, and (2) Star Wars Junkie (though they don't know quite how far it goes and haven't asked).
