Yes, I realize I’m a dork… but I’m ok with that


This is my latest favorite thing. The Disney Mr. Potato Head. Complete with Mickey Ears and a Disney nametag.

Oh yes. That’s really there on my desk. :)

A colleague at work and I were talking about how many more days until I’m back in Walt Disney World [41 days, 11 hours, if you’re wondering] because she’s a big Disney nut too. :) Who knew?

She asked me if I had seen the Disney Potato Head. I asked her if she meant the one that greets you when you’re in line for Toy Story at Hollywood Studios. She said no, silly, the actual Mr. Potato Head.

I said no, I hadn’t, and immediately ran over to the internets and realized that it’s quite a collector’s item. It’s hard to find!

So this morning, my colleague brought in that little guy to show him off. Isn’t he cute?! She mentioned that she’s a big Potato Head fan and has a bunch of them in various outfits, including this Disney one. I squealed and awed appropriately and then she said…

“He’s yours!”

I couldn’t even believe it! Wasn’t that so sweet? She said she has a bunch of other ones at home and that she thought I’d really appreciate him.

He is currently residing in a place of honor next to Thomas the Tank Engine, my crown from the Shakespeare Festival and all-important calendar.
