Happy Birthday, Grimace

After all the fuss I made about Uncle O’Grimacey, it seemed hypocritical to let a celebration of Grimace slide by without at least trying the new beverage they crafted for him. And I’m glad I did, because this is delicious. People have said they think this is grape, but I think that’s a color-taste association response to the purple. I detected no grape in this this. I would describe the flavor as 75% vanilla shake, 22% mixed berry blend, and 3% blueberry. Again, the blueberry might be my own color-taste association influencing my judgment, but whatever the case, this shit is tasty. I’m glad I got a small, because it’s pretty sweet. But not unpleasantly so. I’d absolutely drink this again – 8.5 out of 10.

Slap Bracelet

I saw this claim online, and I just assumed it was more internet bullshit. So I cut one open to find out for myself. I apologize, internet. It’s absolutely true. Slap bracelets are made of tape measure reels. My brain is still coming to terms with this revelation. It’s so hard to believe.

July 12, 1962

My favorite band and I share a birthday, which is pretty much the most fantastic coincidence ever. The Rolling Stones played their first gig on July 12, 1962. Happy birthday, boys! I know it’s only rock and roll, but I like it. Yes, I do.
