Funny and/or Strange

Amazon Is Weird…

…or funny. Drunk funny, maybe.  I looked at their site the other day, and something is amiss in their recommendations. The items at the bottom make sense–I’m interested in riding more rail trails, and it seems like an extra way for my wife and I to distract ourselves from our pending empty nest syndrome, so the first book makes sense.  I’m into science fiction,  I’m looking for a new computer, and I do like holiday music–and have other holiday music by those two bands, so that all works.  As for the Christmas Elf costumes, however…what the hell do I interpret from these?  I’ve never bought one, or shopped for one, and even if I did the odds of getting them in my size (XXXL in Orc sizes) are pretty slim.

I guess I’m left to infer that this is some subtle plot for me to buy the afore-mentioned  wife a sexy elf costume, and that she is in a real damn hurry to get one of these outfits…but which one?  I like the barber pole socks on outfits at the edge, but I also like the tall black boots, second from right.

Decisions, decisions…

Do you think this means she’s getting a me a Santa Suit?  Role play doesn’t appeal to me in  broad terms, but Santa and the Sexy Elf?  A guy could do worse

Bonus Picture–Bikini Ski Girl

I’m always harping on my kids about wearing “weather-appropriate clothing,” unlike the kid from up the street who I see trudging home without a coat, regardless of temperature–stubborn silly boy.

I should have posted this last week during the Olympics…too bad.  Found on Pinterest.

Random Photo Found via Google Search 1

I love photographs.  I could roam around flickr all day, and I have.  For this “feature” I will do a random search of the internet, pick the coolest picture on the page, and share it with you.  Occasionally, if all of the images from the initial search–now, what’s the technical term?  Oh!–if all of them suck melons, I will either scroll down until I find a suitable photo, or substitute one from the hundreds that are clogging up my hard drive. For no good reason at all, these pictures are going to appear on…let me think…um, how about Wednesdays?  And Sundays, at least at first.

Random 1

Some notes on these photographs:

  • This blog is for personal entertainment, not commercial reasons. I derive no income from this site.  Not a penny.  
  • The pictures in this feature are obviously not mine, and I have made no effort to secure the rights–I’ve posted them because I like and enjoy them.  If any of these are yours, let me know and I can add an attribution or remove them, as appropriate.  Thanks!
  • I’m a man–with blustery, testosterone-stained, primitive, often immature, and generally not-fit-for-company tastes and preferences.  I like flowers and mountains and little baby animals, but I also like pictures of beautiful women, old motorcycles, stupid trucks, and so forth.  If the photo most appealing to me from a particular search is a bikini-chick in high heels riding an old Indian motorcycle, I’m going to go with it and welcome a dialogue re: my neanderthal sensitivities and the relevant socio-political implications of my actions. Just saying.
  • Likewise, it is highly unlikely that there will be an equitable inclusion of oiled-up muscular hunks to balance out any typical man stuff that appears in this feature.
