Tonight, my very thoughtful husband walked by some bins...and saw a tricycle...


Check out that super cool Hello Kitty tattoo, lads! Also ignore the distortion of the phone making my head and legs huge. I mean my head is big but not Keith Olbermann big. Jeez Oh.

Alright, who wants to get on the back? I'll drive you round the block, free of charge!

Are Humans the Only Ones Who Trip?

I never see a cat trip over something. Even monkeys, you never see monkeys tripping. Humans be trippin'.

Twitter Re-Interview #29 with @Boots_33

 A VERY exciting re-interview for me today!
As it's with my best pal in all the whole wild world (and yes,
I did say whole WILD world, it's damned wild out there!
...okay it was a typo to start with)
my bestest percent pal @Boots_33!!
Read on and you'll love him just as much as I do...
but not more! That's not allowed. Sorry.

Are you happy to participate in this re-interview or are you doing it against your will?
I will accept an interview as many times as I get them. :)

In what way has your life changed since your last Twitter Interview? I assume you now get recognized on the streets, is this a bother to you?
If I was employed last time, that has changed, as I am once again not. I don't mind the recognition, though. I just wish they didn't kick me.

You just won ANOTHER years supply! But of what?
Girl Scouts Thin Mints-flavored coffee creamer. Love the stuff.

Hey Arnold, Doug, Rocko or Catdog?
Probably Doug. It had the catchiest theme song.

You got drunk last night and have no recollection of that brand new tattoo on your forearm. What would be the most embarrassing thing it could say?
True Belieber

What number am I thinking of?
It's not really a number, but more of a percentage. :)

If you could get rid of any tv channel, which would it be?
TruTV. Nothing on that channel is remotely truthful. Horrendous.

Complete the Sentence:

Rub a dub dub...Percent Pals 4 lyfe, bub.

The worst thing to put on a pizza is...shards of glass

At 7pm, I usually can be found...quite easily. I'm a big dude. It's tough for me to hide.

Gorillas can be scary, but not scarier than...edible underwear.

My computer likes...soft, candlelit dinners.

Would You Rather...

A) Give a gift
B) Receive a gift
C) Both

Give. Easily.

Be eaten by
A) A dastardly lion
B) 100 ravenous worms
C) 2 sneaky rats wearing top hats and proclaiming you to be "an acquired taste"

A lion, because then I can claim that I was a feast worthy of kings.

Dance without moving your
A) Feet
B) Arms
C) Head

All of the above, cuz I'm a terrible dancer.

Have a cartoonist draw you
A) On a bad hair day
B) In the nude
C) Merrily digging a grave

C – It would be his final drawing.

Have to
A) Eat a burrito with a ton of sour cream on it
B) Spend a whole day with Donald Trump

Surprisingly, B. I might have to listen to Trump spew his nonsense for a day, but he could buy me a crapload of delicious untainted burritos and I would eat every single one of them. Sour Cream is the devil's disgusting invention.

Draw a picture of yourself as a happy percent sign. Be as detailed as you wish.

Where else can you find Tony I hear you ask? Well continue reading!

"I do podcasts!" (We're migrating SOON! Stay tuned...)

"I also has a blog that doesn't get a lot of love from me, but I'm hoping to turn that around. Check it out!"

Twitter Interview #28 with @OcarinaOfTom

 Our 28th interview is with the very funny and interesting @OcarinaOfTom!
Now sit back, relax and enjoy the chaos :D

Are you happy to participate in this interview or are you doing it against your will?
Happy? I’m ecstatic! You are the first person ever to interview me.

State your name and purpose:
My name is Tom Hall. My purpose is to rid the world of reply all text messages while promoting my message of love and cheese.

If you could only have one type of sandwich for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Definitely the cheesesteak if we are going on sandwich genre alone. I could get steak or chicken, awesome melty cheese and good veggies. There is not even a close second.

You just won a years supply! But of what?
Milk. Definitely milk. It is more expensive than gas at this point and I drink it as though it contains my life force. And whole milk, too. None of that hippie 2% and lower. That is just white water. Also, soy milk is not milk. It is soy juice. The soy bean has no nipple.

Who is your least favourite Looney Tune?
This may not be a popular choice, but Porky Pig. He is just not funny to me. He has no real meaningful interaction with the other characters on a regular basis except for Petunia and who cares about her? She’s less entertaining than Porky. Give me a Wile E Coyote any day. Poor guy just wants a good meal and his pride won’t let him give up and just buy a chicken dinner. Now THAT is relatable.

If you could spend the day traveling through a real life version of a game, which game would you choose? (Video and/or Board game)
Oh! I can choose board games? Sweet! Candyland. Come on, who hasn’t at least once in their life dreamt of a world entirely made of candy?

An actual fly on the wall wants to blackmail you. I won't ask what he saw you do, but what are his demands?
He is giving me six months to finally play through my video game backlog. If so much as one game remains unbeaten, he is spilling the beans. *Queue dramatic organ music*

Complete the Sentence:

If 2 heads are better than one, then...everyone will want a second head, leading to an explosion in business for hat makers everywhere.

My best facial expression “up to no good” face as I suddenly gain the visage of Emperor Palpatine

Pigeons are useful for...carrying message during the Civil War and making sure you wash your car regularly.

I never have enough...bacon.

Superman may be able to fly, but I can...manage not to destroy most of the planet with Michael Bay explosions in the name of “saving” it from Zod.

Would You Rather...

Have to
A) Sit on a wet bench
B) Have a runny nose but no tissues
C) Skip everywhere you go for a week, even to the bathroom


Go a month without
A) Your phone
B) Your computer

Have your likeness portrayed in
A) A comic book
B) A video game
C) graffiti


Spend the day as
A) A bee
B) An ant
C) A grasshopper


Please explain your decision:

I think it would be crazy fun to be able to lift many times my own weight for a day. I would have a bunch of other ants get on each other’s backs and I would bench press them to impress the queen. Then some careless human would step on the mound and I would spend the rest of the day running around at full speed trying to rebuild my home.

Draw a picture of yourself as heavyweight champion of the world. Be as detailed as you wish.

5 Banned Toys I Had Growing Up

In no particular order, let's get started!

1. Sky Dancers

I loved these! Yes, a bit dangerous, but that's what makes 'em fun. You never knew when the wing was gonna hit you right in the eyeball....and it often did.

 2. Laser Pointer

I know these aren't illegal in a lot of places but in Scotland they were. That's why we smuggled a few back from Spain in a suitcase. In other news, I have also smuggled fireworks and haggis, though not all at the same time.

3. Barbie Perfume

I remember hearing news of this being banned and thinking "WOW, now it's extra special! I'll be the only one with Barbie Perfume!!!" Apparently it was banned because idiots were drinking it. ...It's perfume. Jeez oh.

4. The Yoyo
 See my article on this one RIGHT HERE!

5. Alien Egg Babies

Another one banned by teachers. Apparently they hated when we threw them at the ceiling. You see, you wait til the teacher is out of the room, throw your egg baby at the roof, it you wait. Anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes later, you're doing your work and all these alien egg babies start plopping down onto desks and floors. It's hilarious. Hate when they get carpet and fluff stuck to them though.

Laura D Wrecks The Classics

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty was a bowling ball
Not an egg
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again
Because he was a bowling ball
And you can't fix one of those once it's broken

My Day In Pictures

 There I am. Hello you!

 A sleepy Chino.

 An origami heart I made using ladybird origami paper.
...because I attempted to make the ladybird but...let's say it died...
actually it was never born. It got aborted, as it were.

 Did some writing! Yay!

 It was 30c here today so I opted for a blue slush puppy ice pole!
Love those slush puppys.

And we finish with a packet of hula hoops. 
Thanks for watching, we'll see you next time,
here on "Things Laura Did to Prevent Boredom".

The Yoyo - A Confiscated Item

I think every school in the world has banned yoyo's at some point. I have a theory that yoyos exist in a time warp, popping out every so often pretending to be a brand new toy. And to children they are. They were new to me before being promptly banned by all the teachers. But it makes you think, they were probably new to people back in World War 2 as well. That is...before the Sergeant banned 'em. Effin Sergeants. Always banning the stuff we like.

In conclusion, the yoyo is a very devious toy. Claiming to be new and hip, then laughing at us when we get in trouble, only to jump back into the protection of their time warp. Effin yoyos.

Twitter Interview #27 with @destroy_robots

 Our 27th interview is with the very cool
Spoiler alert: he'd actually
not like us to destroy any robots as they're pretty cool.
Read on for more shocking developments!

Are you happy to participate in this interview or are you doing it against your will?
I am happy to do it, however if I was forced, I wouldn't say so obviously, or I might not like the consequences!

State your name and purpose:
Nick. My purpose is to live, and love.

The Simpsons, King of the Hill or Futurama?
Futurama without a doubt. It has lots of robots in it, and despite my twitter handle, I personally think robots are pretty cool.

You just won a years supply! But of what?
Free wishes. However if that wasn't possible, beer.

Kelloggs are getting tired of Tony the Tiger and his huge ego. They ask you to come up with a new mascot for them. What's your mascot's name and species?

I think Kellogs should dump Tony and go for someone younger. Tony's huge ego is only the result of royalties which have paid for his mansion, where he lives the typical rich animal lifestyle, snorting sugar off a deer's bosom.

If you could spend the day traveling through a real life version of a game, which game would you choose? (Video and/or Board game)
I'd have a go at Super Mario, any of the games I guess. Sure stomping on enemies is effective, but has Mario ever tried talking to them in a civilised manner? Perhaps the Goombas are very reasonable, and eager to listen to facts about their boss, Bowser. Not sure about a board game.

You receive a message to come to a secret location, at a secret time. You are told no more than this. What do you do, given that they did not specify the location or time? Also, who sent that message?
I would do nothing. Maybe check a map for a place called "Secret Location".

Complete the Sentence:

My face often looks like... death

Cats are the worst at... cooking

I'd like rainbows better if... they were brighter

My kitchen always contains... me eating

The best bet is... not to gamble

Would You Rather...

Spend an hour being
A) Confused
B) Curious
C) Delirious

Curious wouldn't be that bad, especially if you know its only for an hour.

For a week eat only
A) Fruit
B) Vegetables
C) Cereal

Fruit. Done it before.

Call a toilet
A) The john
B) The loo
C) The lavatory
D) W.C
E) The bog
F) Eff off, it's called a toilet!

g- the dunny! (I am an Aussie after all)

Star in
A) A cowboy movie
B) A sci-fi movie
C) A super hero movie

B or C would be fine, hard to pick. I love Sci-Fi, but then I'd love to be in a super hero movie. C.

A) A tie as a belt and a belt as a tie, for a day
B) A bowtie, bowler hat and monocle for a month

B. Definitely B.

You have the opportunity to kick a clown right in the butt. Do you take advantage of this opportunity? And do you say anything as you do it?
Nope! I'm far to scared of clowns. The fear of what might happen to me if I did anything would stop me every time.

Complete the Sentence:

The best crime is...using the word 'bacon' in canadian bacon.

I have more than five...3DSes

Monkeys really should...start wearing pants.

My fridge doesn't contain a...perpetual motion machine...oh wait it does!

Okay April Fools Day everyone!
