The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Unexpected Arrival

Ok, I got home from work the other day to find a slightly unexpected visitor on my doorstep. Who was this visitor, you ask? It was an ominously placed bag from Cafe Press! Quite frightening really.

My birthday was last week and I believe this lonely straggler was meant to be part of that process. Unfortunately, he has already missed the party.

Anyway, intrigued by the bag I opened it up. First, I'd like to suggest that when opening strange packages it is advisable to wear the proper eye protection. In this instance, I believe that would have been some very expensive sunglasses or perhaps some sort of welding mask for what greeted me when I opened this bag was an amazingly lime green shirt. After shielding my eyes (so as not to directly look at the shirt) I finally managed to finish opening the package.

The shirt, once hatched from its unholy egg soon won me over with it's other-worldly splendor. Ok, it actually just had a great quote on it asking, "What Hath the Snacking Gods Wrought?" I can only assume that my reputation as one who enjoys the snacks must have gotten out and that this shirt is a reference to that. On the back it is a a picture of something apparently named Sushi simply speaking the word "Gloooooooooob" (I'm unsure of the exact number of O's without counting them on the actual shirt) and a reference to This apparent gift came from an address that I didn't recognize ... it's only clue is a reference to this blog. Perhaps someday the mystery will be revealed ...

Anyway, it's pretty cool even if an ungodly shade of green. I just need to find some like colors to wash it with. It may be awhile before I've got a full load of lime green clothing.

I took some pictures with my phone but I forgot to copy them off my phone so you'll just have ot look at it at Cafe Press.

Full Story

[Update: Upon speaking with the Well Rounded Nerd it has been confirmed that this shirt was indeed a gift commemorating my entrance to this world! Good job, kind sir.]

Damnit, I've been trying to do that right for a month but failed. At least now I have a template to follow.

Don't worry the rest of your crap is at least as random and now even later.

I tend to also consider stuff from CafePRess to be possible hate-mail/bombs.
