Oh...  
Abby lost her first tooth on Saturday night in, of all places, Wal-Mart. We knew it was loose and the last time she showed it to me that night it was kind of sideways so it was obviously ready to come out.

Rachel and debated on what to have the tooth faerie deliver. Rachel went with 50 cents and a sparkly purse she had found that Abby had liked before. Abby, it seems, had expected something akin to a Christmas morning pile of gifts. Not sure where she got that idea.

Tim (a co-worker from another department here) commented, "Wal-Mart. ALWAYS no toofses." It was funny to me at the time, so I share it with you now.

Did I mention I picked up an Xbox from my VERY nice niece over Christmas? It's a loaner, but I see getting LOTS of use on it. Since Christmastime, I've procured a few games a few years too late, but still entertaining nonetheless. I'm currently in the middle of X-Men Legends, Fable, Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and KOTOR. Due to the kindness of my friends, I've also procured copies of Halo 2, KOTOR2 and some other games. Amazingly enough, I still play some KoL here and there, and have finished up my hardcore runs, hardcore-perming 15 level skills for each of the six classes. I'll keep doing so until I've hardcore-permed all the level 10 skills. Woo.

Has anyone else seen the previews for 300? I can't wait for it.

Lastly, I have a bunch of books on the way to me, some of which I've owned and lost or lent out in the past:

Oh man. I had no idea the tooth fairy delivered money *and* presents these days! Thanks for keeping me up-to-date!

Well, since it was her first tooth, we figured we'd give her one gift. I don't know if we will continue doing so.

While growing up, both Rachel and I got money for our teeth, I believe.

i'm assuming that any future dislodged teeth will have to be placed in the sparkly purse for the tooth fairy to do the exchange? :)

That makes sense.

When Jon gets to that age, I'm not sure what we'll do.
