I love drifting through internet land and finding funny stuff.
And I love that I have a place to share those findings with other weird people!
This is fun, from – 15 strange and bizarre gifts
(i’m only showing my favorites)
oh how many mornings I wished I could have had a pair of these.
Wouldn’t life be just so much more fun if you went around everywhere in a pair of these…?!
But the question is where do you find clothes that fit over?
…Now this is something really special.
This is exactly what every woman has been waiting for…
Squirrel feet earrings!
Picture how delicately they would frame any face.
Men – wear just one for a funky bling statement
If I had this in my bedroom growing up, my dreams would have been a lot less peaceful.
Really though, I can appreciate the statement – and yeah, the world is totally over-run by creepy teddy bears. Maybe this is a good way to recycle?
This is a life-altering invention ladies.
A disposable, fold-up cardboard specially designed to fit through your zipper and around your cootchie so that you can pee standing up!
All these years I was jealous of the men who could write their name’s in the snow. Now I can do it too – and yeah, my handwriting is way nicer.
I’m not quite sure about toilet paper though – My scientific research tells me that men just shake and go…
Remember – by the time you read this you will have already read this..
Ok so, not really that long but it feels like it…
I was given a really awesome super special gift this weekend
It’s a collaboration piece made by Nathan Bray and Cody Bartz.
I need to do a little more research,I’m not exactly sure who did what..
Here’s where they both signed the bottom, so I’ll have proof it’s authentic when they both get really famous.
You can see the awesome flashing effects the soda kiln left on the clay body –
I love the soda kiln!
And I managed to get this amazing gift because I am just that cool…
..also because one of the handles cracked.
But it looks really fitting with the crazy faceting through-out the whole piece.
I’m excited because I have a great use for it.
Last summer I bought this house plant from home depot – I’m not sure what kind of plant it is
anyway, the thing was thriving all summer and fall, but as soon as winter came and it was getting no sun the poor thing just started to die a little more every day. More and more leaves kept falling off of it.
I think I gave it too much water, and it was in a vase that didn’t have holes in the bottom.
By December there was just one stalk left, with 2 leaves. When those last 2 leaves fell off, I finally set-up a heat lamp for it.
But I came home one day and one of my cats had bitten in to the stalk, and it was almost completely snapped in half, except for a thin strand of fibers that were still hanging on.
I grabbed a pencil and some tape and bandaged the near dead plant back together.
Since then I’ve been saying hello the plant every day and give it encouragement to keep growing. I know it sounds like crazy-lady stuff but here’s proof that talking to your plants actually works!
Slowly but surely more and more leaves have sprouted out, and new blossom formations are getting ready to sprout open.
I carefully transplanted it from this green vase and put it in a big plastic cup with holes on the bottom.
I also gave it sugar water to jump start growth (hopefully)
the plan is to let it get stronger in it’s new, nutrient-rich soil, transplant it once more into a larger rectangular pot, then put that inside my awesome Bray/Bartz pot.
The whole thing will be a symbol of what can be accomplished when you have a little faith in something.
Ever find yourself searching aimlessly through the internet because you are soo damn bored and certain there must be something entertaining some where around here….
Here are a few suggestions from a semi-professional time waster
Easy Mac Micro Maniac – watch videos of weird objects being microwaved
Falling Sand – play with the elements and create magic
Subservient Chicken – make the chicken do anything..even the Y.M.C.A
Burn Your Boredom – a website dedicated completely to being bored
Stupid Stuff – a great site for fun, weird, and stupid time wasters
I stumbled on this awesome article yesterday, it was a compilation of the 15 most unintentionally funny comics.
I found the underlying tones of feminine bashing to be pretty funny – as long as this stuff doesn’t offend you! I realize feminism is a huge movement that has accomplished many things that I can’t help but take for granted.
The real reason why we should look at these as humorous and not offensive is because we know as a society we will never go back. We need to look at these painful reminders to prove how inequality just fails over and over again.
“Those who ignore history are bound to repeat it.”
_who said this famous quote – anyone know? (George Santayana)
I often forget how flawed the human language system is for means of communicating.
That’s totally serious! But usually I am not being very serious, I am usually being extremely sarcastic, and to the point where people who don’t know me very well have a difficult time deciphering whether or not I’m being real when in my head I know whatever I’m saying is so ridiculous it could never be true.
I apologize to those who do not understand my sense of humor and my love of sarcasm. Honestly and truly, curse this language that can at times be so fluid and flexible and other times leave you in a world of hurt because no one interprets anything the way it was meant to come out…
I took the quiz – How Sarcastic Are You?
Here were my results
|You’re Totally Sarcastic|
| You sarcastic? Never! You’re as sweet as a baby bunny.
Seriously, though, you have a sharp tongue – and you aren’t afraid to use it.
And if people are too wimpy to deal with your attitude, then too bad. So sad.
And if they say it online it has to be true!! (see.. that’s an example of me using sarcasm in an everyday situation)
And for the hell of it, I found some fun comics involving sarcasm…
Here’s where I’m at so far
I had the bad experience with the “Our Family” brand cherry toaster pastries a few weeks ago.
Since then I’ve tried
