“Kids across the nation will soon rejoice,” he said, as they get another hour of daylight trick-or-treating.
Um, hellooooo… only toddlers with their parents go trick or treating in the daylight. The rest go after dark as the good lord intended! Sheesh.
It’s bad enough that fewer and fewer kids get to enjoy trick or treating these days, but expecting them to do it in daylight? That’s just no fun at all.
Salads with lots of good crunchy stuff like croutons are good. Salads with crunchy frog are not!
From Breezewood Roundtable, a list of Least Favorite Children’s Books, including
Harry Potter and the Protocols of Zion, Let’s Beat up the Fat Kid!, and The Crime Scene Coloring Book. (I hope you have lots of red crayons!)
Like chocolate? Want to get a t-shirt that displays your love for the cocoa bean? Now you can get a shirt that is not only chocolate-colored, but chocolate-scented. Really. (Though their website could do a better job of mentioning this. It’s buried in the “About Us” link.)
I wonder what happens to the scent after a few washes. I also wonder if it would make me crave chocolate all day long!
Since I started knitting, I have noticed that a lot of knitting patterns are just ugly. I mean eye-searingly gawd-awful ugly. Honestly, people, just because you can knit something, doesn’t mean you should. You Knit What?? is a blog devoted to showing the ugliness that can be made with two needles and a bunch of abused yarn.
Back in the ancient mists of time (or something like that), there was a computer game called Adventure. In that game, there was a magic word: xyzzy. Since then, a lot of games have included xyzzy in some form as a tribute to the much-loved Adventure game. And I do mean a lot. The xyzzy responses page collects as many examples as possible, and some are pretty funny, such as the goofy Christopher Cross parody. (Gads, I really am showing my age now.)
