Oh My Gosh It’s Snowing and Haunted!

Oh My Gosh It’s Snowing!

17 Nov

– What if it starts to fray?

17 Nov

– No problem we’ll just tie a knot on the end of it.

– Yeah but what if THAT end starts to fray?

– I’ll just tie another knot.

– But what if THAT…

-FINE! I’ll fold it over and wrap a bunch thread around it! You happy?!

(Said the guys who designed the drawstring on Beth’s new sweatshirt.)

Stuffingless Toy vs Pip and Smidge

15 Nov

This is the newest toy we bought for the little ones.

(We went stuffingless this time because they get their full of eating stuffing from their beds. ) But man look at this surgical attack. They really went for it. Chewed his junk right off.

It appears they were aiming for the squeaker.

The nondescript furry creature has been silenced.

For now.

It appears he has a squeaker in his head as well.

I’ll keep you posted of his fate.

Every Time I Have Peanuts or Peanut Butter in Canada

13 Nov

I think of spiders.

And then I’m reminded of that thing where a jar of peanut butter can have random bug parts in it.

Hmm… Something else to start making myself.

Two Vids I laughed at this week.

2. This next one was a comment someone left me. I normally don’t approve embedded videos in my comments. But I liked the video a lot so I figured I’d share it with everybody.

If you can avoid reading the title of this piece I guarantee you’ll enjoy it more.

(Although now that I mentioned it I feel it’s like asking someone not to think about pink elephants. AH! You did it!)

 

Just scroll down really fast so that the title gets tucked under the top frame of this window, press play and then you can scroll it back to get the whole picture.

 

 

Yup! This Showbiz Thing is Pretty Glamorous.

This is my receipt

9 Nov

from when I purchased fake dog poop the other day.

The first  thing you may notice is that I sprung for the “deluxe” model. (The only one they had.)

And here it is:

You’d think “deluxe” would be a little more… substantial.

You may have also noticed that I actually bought two of these deluxe… twos. 

Not much more impressive.

However since then I’ve learned that the “deluxe” apparently refers to all of the fun that is stored inside.

You mean it won’t actually cause me to sprout wings?

One thing we’ve been noticing when we watch TV in Canada is that the ads they  run tend to have a lot more disclaimers than the same ads in the U.S.

The best examples have been Red Bull spots which I’m used to ending with the slogan “Red Bull gives you wiiings.”

But when I’m watching Canadian TV “Red Bull gives you wiiings” is immediately followed by, “actually Red Bull helps to temporarily restore mental alertness and wakefulness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness.”

Whew! They definitely CY’ed their own A’s on that one.

A few of you…

have criticized my last post saying that Vancouver does not constitute the “Great White North” although according to this map…

Furthermore I’d like to let you know that techincally I live in NORTH Vancouver.

So…

there.
