Consumerist

Add these to the "Things Julie Buys That No One Else Would" list:

Today I received two items in the mail. The first was this fabulous GIR plush toy. If you don't know who GIR is, then you're obviously not hip to the entertaining Nickelodeon animated series "Invader Zim". The show was created by some guy by the disturbingly unique name of Jhonen Vasquez, who penned such comics as Johnny The Homicidal Maniac and my personal favorite, Squee.

The second, and perhaps best item was the 7-disk DVD Collector's Edition box set of Carl Sagan's landmark TV series Cosmos. It's a bit pricey, but it's been on my Amazon.com wishlist for well over a year now, so I broke down and bought it for myself. (Come on people!) Anyhow, I love Carl Sagan. Perhaps in a future post I will try to do justice to just how strong my feelings are for the now-deceased astronomer/scientist-of-the-people, but I have neither the time nor desire to do so right now.
