Three Month Update

After three months on Carnivore and Alternate Day Fasting, I am down 50 lbs. I swore I'd share the before and after pics eventually, well, I guess that day is today. Still got a lot to go, but here's where I am so far.

Goo

I was in the car the today, when I saw this car with this decal in its window. I asked my wife to take a picture for me.


I don't know who this guy is, and why he cares so much about goo, but it struck me as an odd decal to have on one's window. Maybe he works for the company that makes that Goo Gone stuff that is supposed to clean off the goop leftover from stickers and what have you.


That might explain it. But "GOO IS GOOO"? What's the deal with the third O on there? And what might goo is gooo mean? Is it some kind of reflexive statement like the phrase "it is what it is" or something? I just can't figure it out. It almost makes me want to throw up my hands in frustration and give up, and just chalk it up to something stupid like choosing a really unfortunate font for your decal or something like that.

Very Public Typo

I saw this shirt in an add on Instagram the other day:


It's one thing when your Facebook posts, tweets, and Instagram posts are littered with typos, but it's quite another thing when you're trying to sell a shirt to people and you haven't checked it. Needless to say, I won't be buying that shirt. I wouldn't have anyway. Hocus Pocus is not my thing.

Cheap Toy Hunting Help From Rish

This time, the cheap toy hunting prize comes by way of Rish Outfield. He grabbed me some stuff from his local Tuesday Morning store, and then handed it over to me when we got together while I was on vacation. Do you like Linda Carter? Do you like Return of the Jedi? If you said yes to...actually if you answered those questions at all, then you ought to watch this video.



Thanks.

He-Man Part 2: He-Man and Skeletor Ultimate Figures From Super7

Okay, I'm back with part two of my He-Man extravaganza. Today, I'm reviewing the toys that I got of He-Man and Skeletor, because, after all, the show is called Big Anklevich on Toys.

Christmas Creep

I saw some posts recently complaining about the Halloween creep...that being the fact that the Halloween season is expanding, creeping outward, and now we're starting to see things like costumes becoming available to buy in July. And, yeah, that's a little too early. However, look at what I saw the other day:


Yeah, those are the Hallmark Christmas ornaments. They've made an endcap of the things, and put them out in early August. What the heck guys? I might understand it if it was one of those stores like Hobby Lobby where they keep Christmas stuff out year round, but this is friggin' Walmart. Give us a break. Let's get through Back-to School, Labor Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving first...or at least some of those, eh? I can even concede November to you. But isn't the day after Halloween good enough to open the Christmas season? Do we have to start in the middle of August? We've had a week straight of triple digit temperatures here in Houston, and you want us to start thinking of dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh?

I think not.

Week Twelve Update

It's week twelve, and here's my update.

He-Man On The Toy Show

I'm doing a two-part episode on the toy show about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. This week, I review the very first episode of the cartoon ever.



Next time, I'll be talking about the toys I got, and whether they fit the platonic ideal.

Am I The Only One Who Thinks This Wasn't A Good Idea?

I was shopping with my wife at Aldi yesterday, and I came across this product:


A nice local product. Sausage made by a company started by local hero and former Houston Oilers legend, Earl Campbell.


However, look at the name of this stuff:


Am I the only one that sees a product called Earl Campbell's Sausage and thinks of dirty stuff instead of grilling on the barbecue? I can't believe that I am.

Cheap Toy Hunting: Game of Thrones

I haven't seen all the show, but I have read all the books...that are available so far at least. And I really like George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series...or Game of Thrones as it is mostly known because the HBO show named the series after the title of the first chapter. This week, I'm talking about some figures Rish found for me with their prices slashed at his local Walmart. He picked them up for me while I was visiting, but you can still find them available at lots of Walmarts...including the one that I usually shop at here in Texas. That big sale is still in the future here. So, check your Walmart too if you're interesting in grabbing these yourself.
