Broken Picture Telephone!

There's a really cool game called Broken Picture Telephone. It's like the game we played as kids where one kid whispers a message and as it gets passed around the room it changes to something completely different by the time it gets back to the first kid, except with pictures!

Basically the first person types a message, the second draws it, the next person describes what they see, and on and on. The results can be hilarious!

Here are some examples that I participated in (I'm Giant Jerk, and Susan is Susanlee178):
Example 1
Example 2
Example 3

Awesome right? Everyone should play!

We got a small tax refund that we weren't expecting. Since we had some extra cash we decided to get bicycles! We got blue and pink beach cruisers.

Mine's the blue one. It's a fun, but terrifying experience for me to ride a bike. For one thing, they are not made for people who weigh as much as I do that aren't several thousands of dollars, so I'm just waiting for the wheels to taco or the seat to break off throwing me to the ground in a pile of broken bones. It's also scary because I haven't ridden a bike in around 11 years. As soon as I was able to drive I stopped riding and never looked back.

We've been talking about getting bikes for a while because it would be fun, good exercise, and a cheap gas-less way to get around; but we haven't had the money to get them. So far nothing has broken off under my weight, but my legs and arms feel like jell-o! We haven't even ridden that far, just up and down the street over and over, like little kids who aren't allowed to go off the block. But it's so much fun! I wish now that I had not stopped riding my bike all those years ago.

On a funny note the terms for people who weigh over 200 pounds and ride bikes are 'clydesdales' for men and 'Athenas' for women. That's kinda fun. Anyway here's some more pictures:

You might want to get out of the way!

The bad thing was that the day after we got them a snowstorm came in, so we haven't been able to ride since that first day. But it's a little nicer today, so maybe we'll get out and ride some more! I can't wait!

WALRUSES! Or is it Walri...

National Geographic posted this awesome picture of walruses at rush hour. It looks dangerous, like a room full of people running around with scissors.

Hungry ghost?

Last night I was standing in the kitchen drinking a glass of water, when the pantry door swung open. A can of Ranch Style beans (I'm glad it wasn't something embarrassing) fell off the shelf and hit the floor, hard. A second later it shot across the room. It didn't roll, it slid length wise, you know like flat side first across the room really fast and slammed into the clothes dryer. I don't know how this happened, and if it had rolled I would just blow it off, but how the hell does a can go flying across a room like that?

For the first time ever I have a job that gives me spring break off, and guess what. I caught a cold!
I caught it from our dog Maybe. She was sick last week, and one night I woke up and her nose was practically in my mouth and she was breathing very heavily. A couple days later I woke up with a sore throat. I don't think it was a coincidence. So now half way through spring break I am still sick, coughing a lot, but possibly feeling better? I don't know how to tell since I feel different every day.

I found a website that has a lot of good short stories, poetry, and prose. It's If you need something to read you should check it out. I liked "The Slug Trail" by Brian Allen Carr, it's strange.
I found the site via Christopher Walken, who tweeted about it on Twitter.

I've gotten pretty lazy about my blog, and I fully lay the blame on Twitter. I've been tweeting a lot. So if you want to really know what I'm up to, I suggest you follow me there at Thanks!

Actually I just remembered, my twitter feed is over there on the right. It's under the TWIT WIT over there, so you can just read it there if you want to.

I've heard the term "Regal Beagle" used before, but I'd like to be the first person on the internet to use the term "Arch-Beagle". As in the Arch-Beagle, similar to Arch-Duke. There, I've done it. Thank you.


I never understood that whole "psssst!" thing, because usually it would be used to get someone's attention, while not drawing public attention to yourself. But going "Psssst!" just causes everyone around you to look in your general direction. Maybe it's just me, being giant, but people notice. Anyway, I found some fun games on a site called, and wanted to share.

Oh... I'm supposed to be doing history homework right now... yes... (cough) as I was saying the battle for Texas' independence mostly consisted of Texans getting massacred until they got angry and killed the Mexican army in 18 minutes. That's actually true... in 18 minutes! In the time it takes to... do something that generally takes approximately 18 minutes, Sam Houston's 900 men killed, captured, or scattered Santa Anna's 1300. And that concludes today's history lesson.
