Water Water Everywhere

Now that its quite warm out, people are up to some interesting activities like "jogging" or "biking" but I think they would have more fun with an old favourite of mine - Water Fights!! I cleaned out our shed today and found my awesome Super Soaker CPS 3200, and remembered some of the awesome games we played with water fights.

Ice Ice Baby.
I don't know who thought this up, but I hated them. Freezing cold water, and lots of it was never fun.

Buckets 'O' Fun.
Instead of using those expensive water guns we just found buckets of water and dumped those on the other team (and sometimes our own team)

The Hose.
You knew those kids were serious when they brought out the garden hose, turned it to full and ran.

While those days sure were fun, these are some things we do with water now:

Its weird, I know.

Water the Lawn.
The real way, with a sprinkler or something. Not just "watering" it while letting the hose go crazy on full water pressure.

Okay, so we used to do this as kids too. I guess some things never change.

So as it currently stands I don't think I'll ever get a paying job. While I plan to strike against my no-job situation, I've also figured out my dream jobs:

Mattress Tester.
There is no such thing as too bouncy, too fluffy, too weirdly shaped, or too colourful.

Secret Shopper.
Buy shoes, and cakes, shoes made out of cakes, and make the staff of the store miserable? Sign me up.

Food Tester.
Why yes Prince I'mtooscaredtoeatmyownfoodfirstbecausesomeoneistryingtopoisonme, I will indeed taste all the forms of cheese you own.

Soap Smeller.
Someone must be doing this somewhere, why not me?

This one is legit.

Gold Digger.
No, I mean a real person who goes out in the world with a shovel digging for gold.

Colour Namer.
Someone must have come up with "mauve" and "azure", I can leave my mark in the world via "lompy" - a shade of orangey green.

They See Me Cleanin'

I was cleaning my backyard the other day, and realized there are a lot of things that are just perpetually dirty.

This is why hands were invented, they are like our personal portable plates (say that 3 times fast).

Is it just me or are there always gross bugs on trees. Its as if they feel that they can just live in trees, trees are not houses silly spider.

Doesn't matter how much you wash them or how many pedicures you get, toe gunk is invincible.

Specially if its made by someone in college or university.

Have you ever turned your keyboards upside down, you never know what you might find between your p's and q's.

Probably because nobody uses them anymore.
