We had to take a ton of amino acids, vitamins and digestive enzymes this summer. It was not my favorite thing. Mom saved some of the bottles so we could make Halloween decorations out of them.
I guess Mom thought it would make having taken all this horrible tasting stuff into a fun thing by making icky sounding labels to put on the bottles. It did not.
So far we have:
Flint Root (organic, or course)
Invisible Eyes (it only looks empty)
We have more bottles and labels. (I said it was a TON of stuff we had to take.) We are looking for a few more good Halloween Potion Labels if you want to leave some ideas in the comments. There is no prize for coming up with good ones. Except being immortalized in label form for pretty much forever. Or until we break the vial and invisible eyes go all over the place.
That is kinda it. I got to dump ice water on my mom's head. It was great.
She did that ALS Ice Bucket Challenge thing. My brother, Alex, filmed it. And because I am the tallest, I got to work the bucket. She told me about 5 times not to actually drop the bucket on her head. I wasn't going to drop it on her head. But after she told me all those times, I held on to it super tight.
I tried not to laugh too hard as I did it. But it was kinda really fun dumping super cold ice water on someone. I don't know why. Kinda how it is funny to startle someone. It is a little funny. Even though it probably shouldn't be....
All My Friends Are Dead is funny in a sort of morbid way.
Most of the jokes are about a dinosaur, an old guy and several others...and everyone they know is dead.
And a tree. And all his friends are coffee tables. It is really funny. Even though it doesn't sound like it.
I'd say more but there isn't much more to say. It isn't that it isn't an interesting book. It is just that if this review went on any longer, it would be roughly longer than the actual book.
This book is for anyone who is into short books and dark humor.
I'd give it as a gift.
Or you can just watch this British guy read it. The accent makes it seem a little less harsh. Maybe.
To celebrate our Grandpa's 60th Birthday, we made a list of 10 things we like about Grandpa:
1. He has awesome facial hair. (I should mention that Alex and Max helped me make the list. I drew the pictures.)
2. He is funny.
3. He makes up good stories. (He had Max convinced for, like, 5 years that there was a secret passage way in Grandma and Grandpa's house.)
4. He is really concerned about safety. And hydration. He is kinda always reminding us not to run in the house. And to drink fluids. And never to shoot a nerf gun right at someone's face....
5. He is good at hunting. And also golf.
6. He is good at drawing. Not that he does it a lot. But he is good. We know it.
7. He is not afraid to look silly. Like really silly. (Mom says she has pictures better than this of him looking silly in a play. Something about being an Indian and wearing long-johns....And then another time he was in a play as Benjamin Franklin.)
8. He is an all around good guy.
9. He knows about allll the scary movies.
10. He is really smart and writes articles about wine.
Happy Birthday, Grandpa!!!
(#11 - He is cool. And he totally gets how this is pretty much better than a present.)
"Everything you think you know is wrong."
How many sheep were on Noah's ark? (More than 2)
Who knocked off the Sphinx's nose? (Not Napoleon)
What is the most dangerous animal on the planet? (Think small)
How many toes does the two toed sloth have? (Please do not say 2)
Trust me, you need to know these things. You need this book.
I know some kids with Asperger's Syndrome like to memorize facts. But I think everyone likes to know cool facts. Especially if other people do not know these facts. Or think that they know.
I like that I can just flip open the book to any page and read something interesting. Also, they guy who wrote this is pretty funny.
