Somehow a few of my recent topics are coincidentally related, without prior collaboration on my part. I recently came clean about my slightly feminine tea habits, and a few days later I got busy on my galaxy tab putting out fires. This also just so happens to be a tea fire, but no jelly blob dudes homes we’re threatened, and I didn’t put it out with a makeshift hand me down firetruck.
Ahahahaha… that was cool. Sorry couldn’t resist the Beavis and Butthead reference. Hey, I’m a 90s grad, I grew up with them, so I’m allowed… anyways, I’m told they are back on the air and popular again. At least the sign doesn’t say “Please don’t flush”. This hilarious pic was brought to you from my tame little droid x pic and stabilized with a somewhat intoxicated, wobbly tripod.
Yesterday I featured a Big Ass Fan, today is a Big Ass Donut! This place is over in west L.A., near LAX. I was told that this place was the basis for the big ass donut featured in the Simpsons, but I wasn’t presented any facts to back up that claim, so take it for what it is. What I do know, for a fact, is that this place has some rockin donuts! The coffee was watery and bleh, but the donut blew my mind. Suck on that Crispy Creme. This is another shot taken from my antiquated little droid x, the best camera I had with me today.
This beast sits near the exit at my gym, behind the cardio equipment. Let me tell you, it is very, very appropriately named… If you can’t quite read the label in the middle, click the picture to zoom and you’ll know what I’m talking about. I looked up it’s specs just for giggles: 8 foot diameter, 1/2 hp motor, and despite its seemingly slow rotation of only 180 RPM it sure does move air by the bucketloads! This thing would be great to have along the wall in the living room! The kids let out a trouser cough? Kick on the b.a.f.! Daddy busts out a barking spider? Crank up the b.a.f.! Mommy wiggles out a one cheek sneak? Quick with that b.a.f.! The dog pushes out a butt bark? Max out the b.a.f pronto! And viola, instant nostril relief. This picture was hastily taken on my wimpy little droid x as I left the gym.
I talked about an android game yesterday, and today that’s the main course. This is the latest android based time waster that I’ve stumbled across. They had a 25 cent sale on the google market, so I snagged this little gem. The whole point is to put out these fires that are threatening some jelly blob looking dudes little wooden huts. So you drive up in your Macgyver’ed looking fire engine and blast away, until you run out of water that is. No fire hydrants here, you only get the water you drove in with, and if you didn’t succeed before you run out you become riddled with guilt as these little jelly blob dudes’ houses and all their worldly belongings burn to the ground. In every level these guys houses are seriously threatened by these little brush fires, and since they made these homes out of wood and straw, if they so much as catch a whiff of the flame they light up like a matchbook! These jelly blob dudes should get a clue and make their houses out of something more flame resistant! But then I suppose we wouldn’t have this clever little game, and I would just be sitting here bored, refreshing my facebook and wordpress stats page all night instead of entertaining myself at the expense of some poor little virtual jelly blob dude’s straw house. This image was taken with my Nikon. I used the flash and bounced it because I wanted the wooden background to show up a bit, and I had a hard time eliminating the reflection.
Jelly blobs. Aptly named by my 3 year old, after playing a game on my android tablet called Jelly Defense, where he nick named the little creature things jelly blobs. So now he and my 2 year old daughter run around the house throwing their jelly blobs around, loudly exclaiming JELLY BLOB as often as they can! This image was captured by my fickle little droid x, and uploaded as is.
I am confident enough in my masculinity to say it. I will say it proudly in fact, I drink “tea” that does not contain any actual tea leaves, and I use a girly cup while doing it, and I am no less a man because of it! This has become my nightly beverage of choice lately, partially because it says that it improves your memory, and partly because it tastes like candy right out of the box, no sugar required. The girly cup is optional, but I’m not ashamed to use it, the size is right, and the color matches my tea.
