Enemy of Anger

A quick aside before we launch into today’s post. The yard sales weren’t really biting all that much this weekend—one of the more exciting ones I stopped at was selling a massage table and, uhh, this book to go along with it (making me question what sorts of things went on on that massage table)—but I did want to share this one craigslist ad I found:

SO CREEPY! Anyway, back to BOARD GAME WEEK, where nothing’s ever creepy.

Yesterday’s game was BORING. Do you have anything with some action? Maybe some space ships?? Maybe some space ships…in waterspout?? [Edit: that was supposed to say “outer-space” but I’m not always great at typing.]

Making Tapeworms Fun Again

Man, I miss the days of weird CD-ROM reference discs like this. Recently I turned on the Gateway 2000 (still passing the boot sequence since ’94!) for a round of In the Company of Whales, a piece of software narrated by Patrick Stewart, whichbesides giving you a full 45 minutes of low-resolution whale footageoffers an interactive panel of whale experts you can bug about topics like “how do whale babies happen?” and “what even is krill, seriously”, and watch them spit fire at each other over it. It’s GREAT.

I’m sure this is pretty great, too:

Today we found a pillow at goodwill that is a dead horse head? Idk we bought it

I can only assume this is what you leave in the bed of a four year old when you want to send them a message (about eating their peas or whatever). Either that, or someone’s making a Torsey plush and this was the leftover bits.
