Skittles rant

Today I did something I thought I would never do. Today I threw away some Skittles. In the trash. I'm not talking about the stale, have-been-sitting-on-the-liquor-store-shelf-for-ten-years-and-are-hard-as-a-rock variety. These bad-boys were fresh. What would make me do such a thing? Two words: green apple. Also, four more words: taste like chewy garbage.

What the effyouseekay Skittles?! You can mess with the format all you want with all those other flavor bags you put out (sour, tropical, soap detergent, etcetera), but don't mess with the original flavors that put you on the map! Those green apple buggers are junkin' up the mix.

Yesterday I was reading a comic and my son pointed to the character "Captain Marvel" (a bad-ass female superhero), smiled, and said Momma!

It was cute, except for the fact that he has already identified me as a squishy looking bunny man.  So I guess this what he sees when my wife and I are standing next to each other.

Don't we make an amazing couple?

When I was young, my grandpa (who was awesome) would take me to Toys "R" Us for school supplies (I told you he was awesome) and I would pick out a bunch of cool action figure erasers and scented markers. So when I saw these erasers by designer Chen Lu Wei, I naturally got excited. Every time you use them you change the character's haircut!

Gender Through Comic Books

I am currently taking part in a massive online class entitled Gender Through Comic Books. I am really enjoying the homework (i.e. reading comics), and it is fascinating to see diverse representations of gender in comic books over time. Here's a treat from 1960.

Used without permission from anyone. Deal with it.

Justice has been served

You know how every landlord that you have ever had has been a total dick? Well my friends, today justice has been served (at least for me).

Our last landlord was a bully who took our security deposit for damages that he knew already existed when we moved in. Well, we dragged that dirtbag to court and the judge put him in his place. Our former landlord was ordered to give us our deposit back plus damages. Take that "The Man!"

Get your head in the game

Whatever you do, DO NOT do the following:

On a Mac, press the "command" key and the "A" key at the same time.
On a PC, press the "control" key and the "A" key at the same time.

Oh my goodness gracious, you did it. Did you even stop for a second to consider the consequences of your actions? What if you had broken the Internet?! What if pushing that button combination would have launched a missile and destroyed the moon?!

Fortunately your rebellious button pushing was not for nothing. I knew that you wouldn't be able to resist, and I thought playing this harmless prank would be a good warm up for whatever tomfoolery your friends and family might have in store for you. Good luck out there today, people!
