Friday Fun

I have a new, ergonomic keyboard to type with now, a treat for myself.  It means my wrists and arms can be comfortable while I make the same old spelling mistakes.

First up, oddbox.  Mud, more mud, tomatoes, toe wrestling, dancing on the London Eye and moonwalking down the side of a building.

Did you know it's nearly impossible to poison an Opossum?  That and 9 other things you probably didn't know...or care about.

Picture Time




























And on that happy note, I bid you adieu and a great weekend.

Wow that's an impressive amount of funny stuff to feast the brain upon. I love the last one...but they are all good. Enjoy that ergo keyboard!

Amy Jarecki said...

I want to dance on the London Eye!!!!

Cindy R. Wilson said...

Oh my gosh! Hilarious! Is it TEA you're looking for? Haven't heard that song in forever. And the Goblin king? Definitely going to have to show that one to my sister!

Rena said...

Ha! those are great. Thanks for the laugh.

Shell The board takes some getting used to, but I'm getting there.

Amy I'm sure they'll let you if you ask nicely.

Cindy Are her kids THAT bad?

Rena: I live to serve.

The mosquito quote is awesome! Funny and sad at the same time. (I live in Utah, where West Nile virus, carried by mosquitos, is a problem. Also, my dad is a WWII vet who served in the Philippines. Because of mosquitos, he's carried the malaria virus for 60 of his 88 years.)

Lisa: An irritating whine will get you noticed everytime...just ask politicians.

I didn't know mosquitos got as far as Utah. I thought it would be too cold...or is my geography that far wrong?

Ink in the Book said...

Mosquitos do not freeze here in North Dakota. I think they thrive on cold...

Question for you: How do I get the external hard drive to open up on my mac? I do have a backup there, but when I plugged it up to my new macbook, nothing happened...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I thrive on new followers!!!

Inky: Mossies = No sleep.

I'll come on over and comment about that.

I like the internet cafe one. Can't beat a cheesy punchline.

Martin Willoughby said...

Nick: I love to groan.

Milo James Fowler said...

Good stuff, as always, Martin. Blockbuster -- yep, that about sums it up. My wife and I used to like walking over to our neighborhood store, but alas, 'tis no more. Anyhow, I left a review for Stitch on Amazon and Goodreads -- enjoyed it immensely.

Hey Martin,

Before I forget, thanks for the kind comments re. my open letter:)

I mean we only get one shot with these kids, so we might as well try earn some brownie points before they grow up and have to take care of us :)

PS... Laughed the MOST at the reason for little toes - suffering from one right now :)

Cheers, lad :)

Martin Willoughby said...

Milo: Goodreads too? That is an unexpected bonus and a good idea that I hadn't thought about. I shall reciprocate.

Mark I always say, look after your kids as they'll be picking your nursing home.
