Toy mashup: Darth Vader says … meow!

Not the most advanced mod but I liked how our “brave” cat reacted when I tested a meowing Darth Vader on him.

Conclusion: Darth Vader still has the power of the dark side! :)

Cat Communication

I later learned that only kittens meow. Adult cats only meow to communicate their needs to humans, they won’t meow when communicating with each other. Instead the rely on body language, purring and growling. So when your cat meows at you, it is basically playing kitten with you.

Toy Mashup

This is a first in a series of Mini-DIYs where I will try mashing up parts from different thrift store toys.

Mac leads to better hygiene


Mac leads to better hygiene, originally uploaded by mskogly.

Ok, I am officially ashamed. What you see here is potatochips, dip, chopsticks and a Macbook. So what’s the story here? Well, when I first got my Mac I must have washed my hands every single time I touched something else that might have made my fingers greasy, because I was afraid my Mac would get smudged. Now, if it wasn’t for the fact that I am not the only one being anal about this, I would never have admitted something as silly as this, but I still feel like a turd, you know, in a global perspective, starving children as a starc opposite.

So, have you understood the role of the chopsticks? I’ll spell it out for you: I use the chopsticks to pick up the potato chips and dip them in the Holiday Mix, so I can combine eating junkfood with keeping my Mac clean!

I’m going to hell for this!


So that is my theory: Having a Mac, a black Ipod, or an Iphone for that matter, will cause you to wash your hands like a madman.

Regler for Ekstra Joker Nord

Aka: Reglan førr Jokernord

Eksempler på brukerinnsendte regler til Jokernord, gjort legendarisk av Bård og Harald på NRK, i programmet Team Antonsen.

§5
Ikke lov til og vrenge bøtta når det er en homojoker i nærheten

§7
Du må enten bøtte eller vrenge toeren hvis den havner under en selvmordsjoker.

§9
Hvis homo jokern er inne toern, blir toern trøtt

§10
Viss jokern e snudd, kan du enten vri eller dytte. Viss du dytte, faller jokern i femmern ellers hopper den i bøtte. E femmern øverst, kan du vinne muligheten til å brekke. Brekking gir toer på toer og finfin premie: homojoker nederst.

§12

§13

§14
Hvis det kommer en narko-joker trenger du en omsorgs-joker eller så dør narko-jokeren av overdose.

Reglene pleide å ligge på Jokernord.no – Reglan førr jokernord men det ser ut til sidene er tatt ned. Men prøv å gå dit likevel, men husk å trykke to ganger på høyre musetast, trykke ctrl alt delete og space tre ganger, så går det sikkert bra :)
