Mystic Garden











Two thoughts occur to me about this post-

Thought #1: this is probably way more pictures of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea board game than anybody would ever care to look at, but the game just had so many cool graphics and brightly-colored pieces of plastic that I couldn't stop taking pictures.

Thought #2: It's time to get some Roundup for the driveway.

Weeds are just plants with no one to love them.

Yes! Exactly! Thank you! I knew there was a reason just to leave them be.

Now, tell me why it's okay not to dust...

Dust is just pieces of things - like animal skin and insect legs broken up into a tiny furry film that coats everything until you try to clean it off and then you end up breathing it in and go into sneezing spasms - with no one to love them.

Weird. I just played this game with my kids.

Once again, I'm so consumed with envy over somethin' cool that you have that it is unseemly. Unseemly, I tells ya! If we were ever at a flea market together, I'd wear roller skates to get to the cool stuff before you could. I freely admit it.

Oooo, 20k Leagues game!! I wants some little colorful plastic Nautiluses.

John- I was inspired to photo this particular game by your current awesome blog header!

Sparkle- the thought of some sort of flea market/roller derby hybrid fills me with all sorts of indefinable feelings of pleasure! It would make the most awesome reality show ever! Some insane Supermarket Sweep on wheels, but with kitsch in place of the canned goods! I don't know if I'd have more fun watching it or participating in it. Get a trademark or a copyright or something on this, Sparkle!

lunadude- little colorful plastic anythings are never something you should not want. Did that make any sense?

STEVEN A.! Okay, officially this makes the 1000th awesome idea I've had (well, actually you had it for me--thank you) that I will never actually see come to fruition. Release the balloons and confetti! (Zzzt: If it did come to fruition, I would have it hosted by Wink Martindale, Judy Tenuta, the ghost of Charles Nelson Reilly, Amy Sedaris, and Mr. T. No, let me work on that line-up and resubmit it for your approval. We go splitsies on the profits no matter what.)

Steven A. said...

Oooooh.....Amy Sedaris! I'm sorry, I just had to type her name. It makes my fingers feel all warm and tingly!

Sparkle Plenty said...

I know! I know! Ain't it the truth? Here goes: Amy Sedaris! Eee! You know, if I tried really hard, I could not make up a more awesome family than the Sedariseseses (Sedarisi?)...
