Hi ho, happy Monday y’all. Yeah, I know…”Things” isn’t the most creative title I’ve come up with but I’m not so much in the creative title mood. So ‘Things’ it is. Also, since it is Monday I might as well tell you about the weekend.

Blister Thumb Two: Garden Boogaloo

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Uuuurgh. I’m getting too old to be partying until 2am and then recovering entirely the day after. Next year, would somebody please remind me that I’m decrepit and that I should take the Monday after Smithees off? Thanks!

JSFR: White Rabbit Corn Flavour Candies

Monday, April 21st, 2008

The JSFR was delayed a bit thie weekend due to the Smithee Awards and the fact that April 20th is now the only day in the entire year that I have not blogged something at the booniverse. Corn flavored taffy wasn’t enough for me to lose that day forever so I postponed the date to Monday. Then I post dated to Monday. Heh!

Ann Arbor Smithee 17

Saturday, April 19th, 2008

We thought these were a wonderful idea when we picked them up at Sam’s last weekend. I mean…cherry M&Ms? Chocolate Skittles? What could go wrong? Well the cherry M&Ms, while not bad, tasted like cheap cherry cordials. Really, every other M&M ever made tastes better than these. Mrrh. The Chocolate Skittles on the other hand…see…there’s a reason that Skittles are fruit flavored. I’m just sayin. We opened one pack of each, didn’t even finish those packs and then packed them up for Smithee fodder under the label S&Ms. Because they are!

Which is way more cats than any one person ought to have unless you are some sort of cat animal shelter. It is, however, the number of years Vande-cat has been around. Happy birthday Little Kitty! You can see she is celebrating in high style by snoozing on her favorite chair.

Answers A-plenty

So yes. I forgot that I had the April’s Fool thing out there until about now (actually two days hence but I’m post dating) so how about we look into those pics? I do want to say that I am sad, sad, sad that no one even posted one small guess at anything. It was pretty much all pics and my mother didn’t even comment and she only reads the picture posts anyway! *sniff*

OK, onward!

The Pelé of Cheese

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I…have no idea. This is what happens when you wake up in the middle of a dream and think, “Oi, THAT was weird. I totally have to remember that but I’m also totally too lazy to write it down. Plus by the time I get a pen (that writes) and some paper I’ll be awake and I can’t have that. So I’ll just remember “The Pelé of Cheese” and that’ll be enough to trigger the memory. Right. Pelé of Cheese. Got it. Zzzzzzzzzz.” Then when I woke up, the only thing I could remember about the dream was the phrase “The Pelé of Cheese”. Couldn’t tell you why the Pelé of Cheese but there you go.
