So I went to use my parent's bathroom the other day and found this HUGE hastily rolled up roll of toilet paper at least twice the size of any normal roll. My mother explained that one day she had the grandkids over and noticed that my one and a half year old niece was missing. She found her in the bathroom standing amid a mountain of unrolled toilet paper. When my niece saw my mom her eyes got huge and innocent as she pointed to her nose and said, "Boogey!"

That must have been some booger.

I Need Help

I need help. More than usual, I mean. I've been concidering eventually selling some of the miniature sculpture jewelry that I'm always posting pictures of on my "Sheila's World" blog, but I would need a really cool name for them if I did. Miniature sculpture jewelry just doesn't quite do it. For those of you who are interested in helping me brainstorm some ideas, click here to visit my artwork blog and leave a suggestion. If not, you can move on down the page and pretend you didn't see this post. I'll never know the difference. Really.

Some Things Shouldn't have a Price Tag Put on Them-- Seriously

People will buy anything on Ebay. There was a haunted teddy bear up for auction a few years ago—Closing bid: $11,100.00 US dollars. My first reaction was—SAY WHAT? Anyone can buy a teddy bear and claim it is haunted, people! How could you possibly prove you had been scammed once you got the item? Excuse me Ebay but this teddy bear doesn’t get up and murder people in their beds after all, I want my money back please.

Here are some other real true items that have been put up for auction on Ebay as well as the original description the seller used to describe the item. With a little imagination and a bizarre sense of humor, you too can make thousands on the internet. Here’s how:

High End Cotton Swab - Up for auction is a very, very bizarre cotton swab. Why is it bizarre, you ask? Well, this is a high end cotton swab. If you do not like high end cotton swabs with a variety of uses then please do not bid. Payment is due within twenty four hours of auctions end.

Goldfish Pancake - Pancake in the shape of a Gold Fish it is one inch long see pic. I’m storing it in a ziplock bag in the freezer I also have a Pancake in the shape of a VW BUG car with the exhaust coming out the tailpipe, Pancake in the shape of the Predator from AVP - Alien vs. Predator it is about three by four inches long.

Five Questions Answered by Teen Genius - Great Advice! The winning bidder of this auction will be able to ask me any five questions and I must answer them truthfully to the best of my knowledge. You can ask me about advice on your car, girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, job, house, brother, sister.

Chicken Finger that Looks Like a Chocolate Easter Rabbit - Chili’s chicken finger looks like chocolate Easter bunny. Here it is folks! The strangest chicken finger to ever get posted on eBay. I got this chicken finger on my plate at Chili’s. Just seconds before this prized gem almost ended up in my mouth, my eyes caught the amazing site.

Snow Globe that Can’t Snow - Mysterious Snow Globe! Alpine Skier by Perzy of Austria snow globe high collected around the world. This snow globe will NOT snow! There is no liquid inside the snow globe…but there is snow! You can see this in the picture as the globe is held on its side there’s no bubble of air at the top.

Diamond White Gold Ring Evil - This genuine diamond and white gold ring sold for one thousand eight hundered dollars from JcPenney. Since the ring has been in my possession, I have had nothing but bad luck and evil fortune. I believe that this ring is hexed and I want it away from me as soon as possible.

Fly Perfectly Preserved - I found this strange roll of tape over ten years ago and set it aside when I noticed there was a perfectly preserved fly specimen caught between the layers of clear tape. I do not know the species of fly or the exact time it met its fate but it could be well over fifteen years old.

Ghost in a Lemon - We had a bunch of unexplainable things happen to us in our home, we were watching a TV show one day, it said to catch a spirit you need to cut a lemon in half and leave it in a room for a day and the lemon will absorb the spirit. We decided to give it a try, and it seems that this actually worked.

Buy the Right for Bob to Live - We live on a small farm and this spring my husband and I bought two turkeys to raise for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately one turkey died young and one survived, my husband named her “Bob”. Bob is a friendly bird that allows my husband and two year old son to pet.

Area 51 Base Access Pass - Is it Real? This is a replica of the original sticker. Not Intended to be used for access to Area 51. Sticker is manufactured of high quality ultra violet resistant vinyl. Designed to mount on outside of windshield. Great for the Area 51,XFiles, Roswell, UFO-Space Ship Fanatics.

Well I know what I’m asking Santa to bring me for Christmas. How about you?

It's a Girl

Remember that tadpole I wrote about a while back? I haven't said much about the frog it became because it's been on a hunger strike and I wasn't sure it was going to make it. I've been force feeding the the poor thing for weeks because it refused to eat on it's own. So imagine my surprise when I went to feed the frog last night and it had eaten every last mealworm in the tank all on its own. Not only that, but it has now grown enough for me to see that the frog I've been calling "he" is very likely a GIRL frog. Since it is the boy frogs who make all the noise in the middle of the night, I find this a pleasant surprise. All the kids at the library have been asking about the frog and I've been terrified of what would happen if it up and died on me. All's well that ends well.
