SASF v.8.19

Well, it's that time of the week again, cheeeldren. I'm still kind of wishy-washy, rather contemplative, and leaning towards the cranky side, but not nearly as pathetic as yesterday.

Let's see what's brewing today, shall we?

***
Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign

You see pictures of funny signs everywhere - some much funnier than others. A dirty mind helps. lol

Here are some rather cute ones that I found this week:

heh heh - these are fun. Reminds me of the main street going through our neighborhood - Beaver Ave. We have Beaver Cleaners and Beaver Mowers right next door to each other. Makes me giggle every time I go by.

Dew You?

I don't drink soda pop. I just don't - it's full of sugar, chemicals, sodium. It's evil. I don't let my kid have it either, because it's horrible for them. That being said, here's a little quiz for you to try out: Mountain Dew Code Red Ingredient or Poison? Best of luck! LOL (...and I fully expect feedback on your results along with your intentions for future Mtn. Dew consumption after taking the quiz. lol!)

Geekgasm

Woot! Found a fun new blog appropriately called the Woot Blog. They feature all kinds of cool geeky gadgets - the the Eureka Toolbox Vacuum (sweet!), Toshiba Progressive DVD-R/RW/RAM Recorder (double sweet!), and the SanDisk 128MB and 802.11b WiFi CompactFlash Card (drool!). Check it out!

Hogwarts!

It's official - I've been sucked into the Harry Potter phenomenon.

I had been waiting to rent the movies until I thought D was ready - until I thought he'd understand them and be interested in them. Well, the week before last, I rented the first movie, then the second and now we have P of A. D and I are both hooked. They are brilliant! What wonderful stories, characters, images...I could go on and on. Not to mention the fact that Harry is sooo cute (NO, I'm not a perv. He is. Shut up!)

Now, I have to read the books. Yep...gotta do it.

Idiocy at it's Finest

Here is a fine example of the many things that are so wrong about our society:
Huffer

Meet Patrick Tribett. The Ohio man was nabbed in July for "abusing harmful intoxicants" as he attempted to make a purchase at a Dollar General Store. The 41-year-old Tribett, it seems, had been huffing spray paint and needed a refill. According to a Police report, Tribett's pupils were constricted and he replied slowly to their questions. Oh, and "officers observed the paint on face and hands," as can be seen in the mug shot. Tribett, who was previously busted for assault, domestic violence, and inhaling harmful intoxicants, was booked into the Belmont County Sheriff's Office lockup.

The story (linked above), also links to various other fun mugshots, such as these...

and these...

Shrunken Heads, Shrunken Heads, Roly Poly Shrunken Heads

I'll wrap up today with a fun game I found. It's Dr. Strangemitten's Shrunken Heads - a new "twist" on one of my old faves, Tetris. heh. I've already wasted too much time playing this.

Have a great weekend!

  1. 10 out of 13, but I think one ingredient they list can be used in food in small amounts. Brats.

  4. Oh my... that guy with the paint goatee!

    But yeah, I want to know the story behind the midget porn guy and the snowy white guy!

    As always, hilarious!

  5. Did you ever see Citizen Ruth? Laura Dern's character gets busted huffing black spray paint. She looks like she's got a goatee.

    And I don't drink soda either. Never really cared for it. Now I'm even more glad.

  6. I like the gal's mug shot.

    And you are so evil to link that game! Good thing you can't download it to a PC. I'd never get anything done at home.

  7. Don't you think the guy with the paint goatee kinda looks like my Mr Right I posted a couple of months ago??? Maybe I'm just having a flashback. Happy Friday Girlie!

  10. You find the best stuff! And I'm sure the Man thanks you since I send him a lot of the links I've read here. ;)

    I don't drink soda either, but the other day I had my first "pop" in who knows how long. I bought a Sprite Zero. Yep, same as every other soda on the planet, yucky ol' sugar water.

  11. I wish they'd had a "Swan" sign dammit!

    Love the Shell and the Gandalf signs.

    Wouldn't that be a great job as a creative sign director with no reins?? ;)

  16. Excellent signage! :)
    One of the routes between two of the schools I support is along Barrett Road, and intersects a side street--

    --wait for it--

    "Grinn Lane"!

    Will get a pic of it the next time I head out that way and post it in RFG.

    Congrats on finally getting hooked on HP. I got sucked in with the first movie and just about inhaled the books that were out at the time (I think it was up to Goblet of Fire then). Take your time reading them, however...once you hit the latest book, you'll be jonesing like Restless Angel and I for the next (and [sob!] LAST) book in the series.

  18. Code Red tastes so nasty it should be a drug and outlawed too!

    Loved the signs, I know you've seen the one in Brighton's comments that says Brightons Place. I took that pic just a half mile from my house and put it up for her, hehe

    The spray paint dude looks deranged don't he? Imagine running into that fukker with your car! Bwahahahahaha! hell yeah...
