Random Acts of Violins
Can you believe it? I still can't find a Glen doll - *L*! That's 5 tries now - first here, then two stores in Detroit (thanks, Tig - *G*), and twice more here. They were sold out all five times. Apparently a man buys out all the dolls at the store here the day they come in, so even if I show up that evening, they're gone. Whew! Left my name (again) to see if they'll possibly save me one next time. *shakes head at craziness of it all* And it's not even a very good likeness. It's a shame they have "painted" eyes, rather than clear marble eyes.

And I won a quiz on the radio! *G* It was easy - they asked what REM stands for (in the name of the group REM). I won tickets to Los Lonely Boys, and some wine - not bad! And, of course, eternal glory. *G*

And if you haven't gone to the official movie site and listened to/watched the clip about Billy and the song Pippin sings, go! *G*

Oh... and, don't feel too badly about me not finding a Glen. After all, I found an even more unique artifact of the movie on eBay, bid for it, won it - and recieved it today! Yes, I am now the proud owner of a couple of items made to help promote the movie: an oversized white foamrubbery sperm ("coming everywhere") and a condom in a package, labeled "Get a Load of Chucky". *G* Aren't you proud of me? *L*!

Go you! Let me know if the wine was good, lol. My hub calls my recent exploration of different wines "Deirdre's Wine Experiment" and has refused to have any more to do with it (because he doesn't like the wine -- no, I'm not getting him drunk, lol).

Ooo-ooo-ooo- a clip! A Billeh clip! I am so there! Thank you for mentioning it!

A Glen doll? There's a Glen doll? Well, if it is a true and dire quest, I'll be happy to look around here as well. Spencers usually carries things like that. :)

Very dire! Actually, ONLY Spencer's carries it - that's why I've been looking. It's actually called "The Seed" - I guess because it's Glen or Glenda... the movie never decides on a name. *G* And the movie is called "Seed of Chucky" (*groan*). Only wish they'd done a better job on it and made it look more like the movie Glen - even if he is rather scary!

I'll swing by the local Spencers (and Suncoast and Electronics Boutique, which sometimes carries that sort of thing) on Saturday and see if I can get my mits on one for you. Wonder if they didn't actually put the name Glen or Glenda on the box because of copyright infringement. Hmmmm.

Hey rosamundeb!

I was in a Spencer's store just yesterday looking for the Glen(da) doll and unfortunately they didn't have it.They DID have Chucky and Tiffany dolls though, $89 each.
I was talking to some bb loons and we thought it might be a good item to get Billy to sign one for the bbloonscharities. Hillbillyhobbit bought a doll, though I don't know where she got it.
I asked if they would order Glen and they said no. They looked at me like I was crazy, too. ;)Will check the other two locations in my city later this week.

Isn't there a Spencer's website? I was looking for it round about the time SOC came out but it was under construction. Ah! Found it.
http://www.spencergifts.com/ They do have a 1 800 number there, I see.

Good luck with finding him/her. So far your SOC collection sounds quite...interesting. Why would that guy be buying so many of them?

Yes on the website - but no way to order through it, is there? As to why the person was buying it- checkout the prices on eBay!

I didn't think the cost was that much when buying them "in person", though... figured it was more like $40. Perhaps the eBay prices aren't as bad as I thought. Thanks.
