1. It’s dawned on my that I gotta step up my game. Not my game with cartooning or updating the site more often (that too of course). But my video “game”. I realize that if I don’t learn how to properly work a controller with two joysticks and tons of buttons– I’ll be out of the game. I have skills mind you. I’m still great on PC with keyboard and mouse — but if I’m going to continue to have any game gamery in the future I have to stop denying that the double joystick controller with buttons everywhere doesn’t need to be mastered.
The last few times I played a game with my nephews it was Call of Duty– I was told ‘I sucked’. Sucked! I could barely play. I couldn’t focus on learning the game because I couldn’t even figure out how to balance myself. Or shoot straight.
I’ve prided myself in the past on being able to keep playing video games and lord knows I’m waiting for Dead Island on PC bigtime. But if I don’t wanna seem all outdated on my gaming, I gotta simply sit down and practice double joystick real console. Hard. Or walk away. (Break the wrist. Walk away).
2. I don’t like it when people leave the little plastic film on their electronic devices! That protective peel-off plastic when you buy a new something something. New phone. Or it covers the radio in new cars. New thing with a screen on it. They’re usually covered in a protective peel-off film. Temporarily on there to keep it new. Some people never peel it off!
I think that thing has such a nice clean satisfying peel-off! WTF! It feel good to peel! It’s like a dream sticker! So how could it be that I’ll sometimes see someone with a new phone with the film still on and it’s all filthy and half peeling off?? Certainly if you’re that concerned about protection– there’s other things to buy! Plus, how can you resist not peeling it off?? All day every day! With that little rippy tab just wiggiling its butt at you non-stop?? It’s gotta go! Peel! Please peel it off!
3. I found a really coolio practical joke thing. They’re kinda new (I think). I sent a bunch up to my nephews at sleepaway camp and they went over big. They’re called the ‘Bomb Bag’. It’s like a poprocks size packet but inside you break the capsules and then some illegal chinese chemical situation goes down in the bag and it slowly starts to swell up. After a bit (30 seconds or whtvr) the thing goes BOOM! (way loud!) So you can quietly drop it somewhere and walk away and wait it out. (office trash can or whatever… then BOOM!) Total loud! Total fun!
Funnest new practical joke thingee I’ve seen in a while.
Here’s a video of a Bomb Bag prank:
Them three things I thought about today! ok bye!
