I emptied the washing machine of all its damp, washingy goodness and was confronted by this, lurking in the machine’s stainless steel depths:
Bloody … I thought.
The place is trashed. Totally trashed.
Although not yet owning a full set of the Series 1 or 2 Trashies, he concluded the Series 2 component with a Glow in the Dark Garbage Truck, which delayed bedtime by approximately 1 hour and 47 minutes due to many excited “Come and look at this!” squeals (from all three children) and lights being turned on and off before a severe telling off, so loud that even the neighbours turned their lights off and went to bed.
Along with new bin colours (blue, this time) series three proffers a Scum Drum, a Street Sweeper (on the Christmas list, highlighted and axterixed in red) and, or so I discovered and bought yesterday during a trip to K-mart for important items like shoes with no holes and more Trash Pack stuff, Trading Cards.
On the upside, Christmas shopping and gift suggestions is going to be easy.
Keeping him of eBay is proving more difficult. Giving him false information about how to use credit cards for eBay is more fun.
So … the house … well, when we moved a month and a half ago, he was asked to unpack the boxes stuffed full of his stuff. He had a special box for his Trash Pack stuff, and various others for wardrobe and floor items.
He was clearly advised to hang the wardrobe items up.
He explained, shortly afterwards, that his wardrobe was full.
I went to investigate.
There were two shirts hanging up.
There was this on the wardrobe floor:
No other item could be placed into the wardrobe as “This is a Trash Pack city!” Conveyed in a tone that clearly indicated I was an idiot.
Aside from that, various other floor parts of the house look somewhat similar to this:
On the upside, when you do stand on them, in the dark in the wee hours of the morning, they don’t hurt anything like LEGO. In fact, they don’t hurt at all! They’re such a delight to stand on!
It’s really on the freaky spiders in the washing machine that stop your heart for a few seconds at a time.
Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this post by Moose or anyone else. Aside from the initial Series 2 5 pack that kicked this obsession off, and a further Series 3 pack and GID garbage truck, sent to us by Moose, I’ve forked over good vodka money, Godzilla has saved up his pocket money and purchased it, or has been gifted items for his birthday by family and friends. They’re considerably cheaper than Thomas the Tank Engine and LEGO … and, it appears, just as good!
