Holy cow, the time just seems to be flying by! Another video already. Wow. Well, I tell you, the bathroom renovation is STILL not done. I am, however, going to ask Santa for a finished bathroom this year. I will put aside my desire for a PS3, my little pony and the Animal drumkit from the Consumer Distributing catalogue just so we can have a finished bathroom. I have been a good girl, really I have. Such a good girl, in fact, that I deserve a finished bathroom AND the Animal drumkit from the Consumer Distributing catalogue.
Do you remember the Consumer Distributing catalogue? If you do, then you are from Canada and over 30. Great, I just spilled my beans for you. If you don't know what I am talking about, it was basically Ebay and Ikea rolled into one. Consumers Distributing aimed to reduce costs for customers by stocking merchandise in a warehouse type stocking system instead of displaying them in a costly showroom. Customers made their selections from a catalogue, filled out a form with product identification, and waited for stock staff to retrieve the items from the warehouse.
I remember the excitement of looking through the catalogue at Christmas. I would circle everything I wanted in a red pen and dog ear the pages so my parents couldn't miss it. And every year I would circle and circle and circle the Animal drumkit. 5 years of circles. Nothin. Then, one year, I found a guitar and amp under the tree with the disclaimer "THIS you can plug headphones into!". Fine.
But to this day, I have longed for the Animal drumkit. And I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Not even a picture! So for now, I will have to settle for a finished bathroom. Which is almost as exciting. Check out the latest installment:
Have a great long weekend!
