The Greatest Slam on Earth

“Alexa, what’s the most majestic tchotchke you can imagine?”

BEHOLD! Standing at nearly three feet tall, this statue of Michael Jordan (known for being a meme, and also apparently for playing real-life basketball) is sure to make all your house guests say, “Wow, you must really like Space Jam, huh?”

It’s also nearly twice as tall as MJ’s fellow ballman, Muggsy Bogues. (Ha-ha! That’s a basketball joke!! See, I know things about “our nation’s pastime.”)

For full effect, start at the bottom of his shoes, then scroll slowwwwwly back up to the top, with the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey playing in your head. This statue (found in an antiques shop in Jersey) definitely deserves it.

Repurposed Crab Bits

Next week we start the big move. …Again.

Long-time readers may remember that last summer, we loaded up two cars with me, my wife, our two rabbits, our turtle, my parents-in-law, and enough house plants to stock the rain-forest part of a mid-sized zoo, and drove 2,500 miles from Ohio to California. This move’s going to be different. This time, we’re moving 3,000 miles.

I’ll be gone for the next few weeks, as I down-vote people’s Yik-Yaks all across this great country drive, so I wanted to leave you with something good. One last dose of California weirdness (except for all the pictures I have saved that I haven’t shared yet). I now present to you:

Little statues made out of dead crab bits.


Goodbye, California… 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭
