Of Leprechauns and Elusive Gnomes

Someone forgot to inform me that today is Saint Patricks Day. I have already been eyed by people pinching their fingers together sinisterly three times today and I have been to work a total of 40 minutes. So...I sat down and drew a Sharpie Green Shamrock on my hand to throw up in the sinister-finger-pinchers faces when they approach me. Why isn't there a day where we all wear yellow...or my personal favorite color...purple??? Green is my second least favorite color...the first being red. Oh and I forgot to set a leprechaun trap...what if they decide to play "Make Amy's Desk a Horrendous Mess Because She Didn't Wear Green?" Oh yeah...that is right...my desk is already a horrendous mess. Damn Leprechauns visited me early.

On my recent trip to Las Vegas I decided I really really need a garden gnome. But not for gardening reasons. However I searched the city over and was unable to find gnomes. So I decided to check Ebay's Gnomes...and while they have a plethora...none are quite right. My ideal gnome would be:
1. Red hatted.
2. Standing...not laying.
3. No strange items in hand
4. Not Mooning people.
5. Not outrageously expensive...as is this perfect gnome who costs far too much.

All I want to do is adopt a garden gnome...a normal, happy-go-lucky, red-hatted, non-implement-holding, standing gnome. If you know where I could get one, let me know.
