From last weekend: John and his vanquished foe:
I convinced him to shrink wrap both trees this year. Yay less work for me!
It was a close match, but after some thorough investigation I think the orange wins this round. But of course I'm open to doing more "research." (Lots of folks on Twitter mentioned the Wasabi KitKats in Japan. Erm. I think I'll stick with these.)
I just wore my newest cutie Stay Puft shirt, and for the first time ever noticed what Woot prints on their shirt labels:
Oh, sure, NOW they tell me.
And speaking of shirts, I got this one for John for Christmas:
John and I have had a running joke most of our marriage where we ask the other, "Would you saaaay, we have a PLETHORA of [fill-in-the-blank]s?" So naturally, I went nuts when I found this over at Woot. (And if anyone will get the reference, I know it's you guys.)
I had a rough time yesterday; actually woke up having a panic attack, which hasn't happened in years. After half a Xanax and a trip to the chiropractor, though, I was mostly back to myself, if a bit frazzled. (Most of the credit goes to Dr. Tenpenny - such a great doc.)
I spent the rest of the day in recuperation mode: couch naps, mindless Pinterest browsing, and a little easy papercraft:
Calvin & Hobbes makes everything better.
Head over to Dave's Geeky Ideas for the free download - and while you're there, check out the rest of his blog of geek product concepts, like this Hungry Hippos necklace. I'm newly addicted.
Anyhoo, as papercraft goes it doesn't get much easier than this; all you cut out is a box, an arrow, and a flat 2D image. I was so careful cutting out Hobbes' fur, though... only to discover this morning that Tonks decided to groom their little heads overnight. (Hence the blurry, waterlogged bits.) DANGIT, TONKS.
I've also been playing BioShock: Infinite again (yes, AGAIN) - but this time on our new gaming PC. John convinced me to sign off on the purchase mostly because of Infinite; once I learned the graphics could be even MORE gorgeous on a PC, I was game. Literally. (This also means I can start reviewing PC-only games! Um, when I find the time, of course...)
Anyway, I bring this up because we've gotten ourselves into a grammar dispute. Over a video game. (If ever you doubted our geekdom...)
Here's a crappy cellphone pic of the offending screen in question:
And to end on a laugh, you guys watch True Facts by Ze Frank, right? And you've seen his latest one on armadillos, right?
Just in case:
Happy weekend, everyone!
