Candyland… Come to Life

448px-Sanfran_61_bg_032605

Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 19, 2009, San Francisco’s crookedest street (Lombard Street) will be transformed into a giant Candyland board to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the board game.  The street will be closed to traffic as children from the University of California San Francisco Children’s Hospital participate in the game as colored game pieces and interact with life-sized game characters.

This is almost as cool at the annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel (BYOBW) race down Lombard Street every Easter.  I said, “almost”!

My Gift to You

Picture 5

… for being loyal while I was on hiatus!

Ever since my mom found the Maxine greeting card from Hallmark that read, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit next to me,” it has been our motto.  Shoot – why the hell not?  I mean, snarky gossip is twice as awesome as eaves dropping which even better than people watching which obviously trumps US Weekly… and everybody loves US Weekly, so I think I’ve made my point!

So where is one to get their fill of stuff they shouldn’t hear?  Well, I’ll tell you… cuz I’m a giver… rated by inappropriate excellence:

  1. FML (F-My-Life): Where every day folks share the stories that make them say, “F-My-Life!”
  2. Fireland on Twitter:  A dude named Joshua Green Allen who’s one-liners will make you more uncomfortable than watching Borat in NYC’s Diamond District.
  3. Texts From Last Night: A collection of texts that prove your friends have your best interest at heart when they take your phone away from you at the end of a debaucherous night.

All The Single Ladies

Am I the only one who thinks the Justin TimberlakeBeyonce SNL skit for “All The Single Ladies” is lame?  Perhaps it is only lame because I’ve seen this little gem… nothing competes!

Rock Paper Sissors

Guess what’s happening on October 25th?  The Rock Paper Sissors World Championship in Toronto, Canada!   This is one of the few “sports” everybody can get in on… so get in on it!  

I dig the ‘viva la revolucion’ feel of the posters and the Dilbert-officiality (my blog, my word) of the RPS Society Web site, but the brand could definitely be improved upon.  That would be a bad ass addition to any body’s portfolio. (hint hint)  One thing that couldn’t get any better is the tag…

“Serving the needs of decision makers since 1918”

I wonder if there are Official Thumb Wars too?

DIY #3: ‘Stache It Out

Moustaches are powerful tufts of hair. 

Luckily not everybody can grow one, but that shouldn’t stop anybody from harnassing it’s power.  That’s where the finger ‘stache comes in…

 

Instructions:

  1. Draw a moustache on the side of your clean pointer finger with a Sharpie marker
  2. Place same finger under your nose on your top lip (now do you see why I suggested the finger be clean?)
  3. Voila!

If you aren’t into drawing on yourself you can always use this pre-made moustache masterpiece, but I’m warning you that it won’t be as much fun!

Flickd – Black Tie… If You Like It or Not

I guess this is how the ‘upper class’ screw with their friends who have passed out.  Why write “douche bag” and “faggot” on their face when you can dress them up as hired help… the worst insult in the book!
