Halloween Costume Budget

Stumped for a costume? Be a bitch with zits.

Years ago, had I attempted this simple costume, I’d have figured out a way to load the zits with shaving cream so I could pop them.

You’re welcome.

You’re unique, just like everyone else.

Training Your Couch Part I: Changing Light Bulbs

Sunday, 13 January 2013

Changing a Light Bulb

First, convince your couch that in darkness cats will claw its legs and arms and dogs will chew its cushions. Emphasize the importance of electric lighting as a deterrent.

Next, teach it how to sit upright.  Explain how stray pocket change and detritus can accumulate over time in the bowels of a couch. Describe in simple, yet graphic detail, the damage it can cause to the very fabric of its nether regions.

Your couch will become nervous and agitated, so explain that in order to eliminate the foreign objects, it is necessary for it to elevate itself such that you (the Alpha Couch) may remove the offending items easily and painlessly from the lower end. Be gentle, and speak in soft voice.

Your couch will listen silently and attentively to your explanations and will cooperate fully (this is when you should replace the lightbulb and THEN collect the stray pocket change, pencils, pens, crayons, raisins, M&Ms and other miscellany) after which you should explain to your couch that you’d like to relax on it. Your couch will likely prostrate itself on the floor.

This erases its memory of the stressful event. Your couch will become content and pliable once again, especially if you spill something sticky on it.

AC Ice Cooler

Monday, 1 October 2012

This works on a larger scale as well. There are HVAC systems that make tons of ice overnight when the electric rates are lower, and during the day the melting ice cools the fans for AC. Don’t axe me how I know.

Chillin’ at Bathtime

Tuesday, 5 October 2010

Hefty Bathing with solar heated water is the latest trend in the hood, especially when the water’s been turned off for non-payment and you gotta drag a hose from the neighbor’s crib bibb. For a bubble bath, provide your own effervescence…  and you can think that one through for yourselves.

Cool Crafts: AK47 Paper Model Kit

Thursday, 17 December 2009

“Each AK-47 Paper Model Kit comes with all the materials and instructions to construct this amazingly life-like paper model of an AK-47.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a very detailed project, requiring some attention to detail and time.”

Paint it flat black and it’ll get you arrested in the daytime.  At night, unarmed intruders will soil their chonies when they see the business end pointed in their direction.  As for armed intruders, it’s kind of a death sentence… for you.  It’s still cool, though, cuz u kn poze n stuf wit ur blng.
