Afternoon Delight…Or Maybe Not.


afternoon28n-1-web

It’s Summer!!! I’m back and ready to resume blogging…and I think I found a real winner to kick off summer! Let me introduce you to these two brilliant exhibitionists from Philadelphia, PA. (Yayyyy! They’re not from NJ!)

What had happened was…apparently they couldn’t wait until they got home to be overcome with lust (or whatever), so they decided to have at it, right there in Naylor’s Run Park in Upper Darby.  You might think they ducked behind a tree (you know, like a big, fat 50 year old Oak tree) or behind a bush, but nope! Instead they decided to go to town right out in the open, over the bench on the first base line of the baseball field , in broad daylight at 4pm. Hopefully no poor kids had to be scarred by witnessing that, but I’ll tell you who did happen to stumble upon it…the 25 BIKE COPS who were out on a training ride. That’s right…they got arrested by 25 police officers! TWENTY.FIVE.  That is GREAT!!! They had their own riot squad! You know every single one of those officers was totally howling on the inside…and likely all wanted to stick a bar of soap in their eyes. I hope that $30,000 bail they had to post was worth it! (I highly doubt it was!)

Aside from the obvious reasons this amuses/disgusts me, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that they are out of their minds for an additional reason. Do you know how friggin hot it has been here lately??? I’m talking like 100* heat index and full humidity!! I go out to get the mail and get annoyed at how sweaty I am. Who wants to be having some afternoon delight outside in that weather?!? Plus she’s got some lily white skin there. I doubt she took the time to put some sun block on her back. (Read the article if you want to know what that comment meant.)  They should be happy that 25 bike cops came rolling up. These two had a good shot of dying of heat stroke or dehydration before they were done!

I think I hit a real home run with my first post of the summer (Sorry. Had to!), but if you’d like to read the actual news article, then here it is courtesy of the New York Daily News. The quotes are actually quite hysterical!

Just another entry towards my “What Had Happened Was” Story of the Year! I’ve got 6 months to see if anyone can top getting arrested by 25 officers. I have faith in the morons of America that it can be beat!

Happy Summer everyone!!! See you soon!!!

Grass Armchair


5d4df025663b5124be41308837bd9ceb

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…a build your own Grass Armchair!

Are you sick and tired of hauling your outdoor furniture out season after season? What about when a big storm, like Hurricane Sandy is coming, and you have to hustle to get all of your outdoor furniture put away? Well, when the weather man gives you that “secure your outdoor furniture” warning, you can laugh at him and rest easy knowing that’s one less chore for you to do…because this isn’t going anywhere when the winds start to howl!

With this fine kit, all you have to do is assemble the pre-cut cardboard pieces, fill the open crevices with dirt, sprinkle some grass seed on top, and watch it grow! It’s the Chia Pet of outdoor furniture, my friends!

Doesn’t that look like the mecca of comfort? Although, I would have to say that mowing it is likely a huge pain in the ass.

I do advise not sitting on it to read your morning paper, as it is likely to be a little dewy…and perhaps you shouldn’t wear white when you sit on it either. Grass stains are kind of tough to get out.

If you’re all about the “going green” thing, and have no interest in ever rearranging your outdoor furniture, then start scouring the internet and finding a spot in the yard! It retails for between $115 and $150.00, and there are a variety of sites touting it’s environmentally friendly awesomeness.

Grass Armchair…While I am pretty amused by you…I still must dub thee Unpinteresting.

Pet Peek


81510

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…the “Pet Peek”. Of course after a little detective work, I found the original site that makes this…as opposed to Solutions, who shows it as out of stock.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the seller’s pitch:

*Every dog should have a point of view, and this product makes it possible!

*Dogs are curious and want to know what’s going on out there! Help satisfy their curiosity and make it possible for them to have a peek!

* Installs easily! (Mmmmhmmm)

I mean, why have this:

duplex

when you can have this:

yorki8

molly

and even this:

Yay...the neighbors kid's are watching our every move again!

Yay…the neighbors kid’s are watching our every move again!

Now some of you might think this a spectacular idea, but I guess you would have to have  a “normal” dog to use this. I, however, have two nutty Mastiffs and I KNOW this would never work out!

Here’s what would happen if I installed this on our fence:

1. We would have to install two of them, and even then they would find a way to torture each other to death by trying to look through the same “Pet Peek”. Just what I need to add to my day…those two trying to annoy each other (and me) more than they already do.

2. Their gigando heads would never fit in there. Just what I need to add to my day…my two big goofs ramming their giant noggins against my fence all day.

3. My dogs drool when they get excited. Just what I need to add to my day…having to clean those damn things off so they could actually see past their drool that would coat it.

4. They would bark like champions at everyone and everything that possibly went on in their fields of vision. It wouldn’t matter if a leaf floated by…they would bark at it…thus the reason I have a stockade fence, so they can’t see. Just what I need to add to my day…two dogs barking like lunatics. I think not.

5. If they saw a cat stroll by, they’d try to go through my fence. Just what I need to add to my day…a trip to Home Depot for some new fencing.

This wouldn’t work for me on any level. It just wouldn’t.

However, if you think this is something that your “normal” pooch would LOVE, then head on over to Pet Peek,  pony up $34.98 each, and get to installing this in your fence.  They even offer free shipping on orders of 2-4. Not bad. (I’m sure if you dig far enough on Amazon, you could get it cheaper…just saying.)  Also, apparently it is pretty awesome according to lots of people, because this  has even won product awards.

As for me…Sorry, but I must dub Pet Peek Unpinteresting.  I have more than enough insanity in my house. I really don’t need to purposely add to it.

Moss Bath Rug


67202219410837619_23wMYZj2_c

I thought you might need a closer look!

I thought you might need a closer look!

 

 

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…a Moss Bath Rug. I researched this item a little further, and yes, it is legit.

Without boring you to death with the product descriptions I read (You’re welcome!), I will just give you the skinny on it myself:

*The rug itself is made from foam, and it contains three types of moss: Ball, Island, and Forest.

*Clearly it thrives from you standing on it when you get out of the shower soaking wet, and from the humidity in your bathroom after you take a nice hot shower.

*It’s environmentally friendly, and as green as you can get…blahhhh, blahhhh.

OK, let’s just cut to the chase here:

*I did not just take a shower so I can step my cleanly washed feet on some moss. It defeats the purpose for me. Now I have to sit down and clean my feet off again, and dry them with a towel. Damn it.

*I don’t know about you, but I shed so much hair that it winds up everywhere. Just what I need, another friggin chore to add to my never ending list of fun things I do when I come home from work…cleaning my hair out of the moss bath rug. Nope, not appealing.

*This baby costs an average of $115.00!  W.H.A.T?!? Uh-uh.  Not happening.

Moss Bath Rug…I dub thee Unpinteresting.

Stump Tables


Look at what I found on Etsy today…Stump Tables. They retail for $169.00 plus $60.00 shipping.  Whaaaat?  If you want some stump tables and are looking to save money, come on down to the Jersey Shore. Thanks to stupid Hurricane Sandy, we have TONS of wood like this lying around free for the taking…all you would have to do is buy yourself some “non-toxic wood sealer” and you’ll be all set. Sad, but true.

Stump Tables for $169.00…That’s Shitsy!

Boot Planters


Look at what I found on Pinterest today…Boot Planters. What in the hell is with people recycling things to put plants in? First the Bra Planter, and now this?  The only thing I can almost remotely see is taking a pair of your child’s little rain boots that they’ve grown out of and planting something in it for a season. It can be a cute little crafty thing for you and your kid.  However, buying two dozen rain boots, planting stuff in them, and thinking that looks nice in your yard is stupid.  Does this person have functioning eyes? I have to question whether she actually does because this looks ridiculous. Perhaps someone should tell this woman that there is a new fangled item out to put her plants in…called pots. They definitely cost less than two dozen rain boots and looks a hell of a lot nicer. If she wants to recycle her rain boots so badly, she can just do the duct tape boot thing, OR she could just throw them out like everyone else does,  OR she could throw them in her recycling bin if it makes her happy to be so green. Just don’t use them as planters.

Boot Planters…I dub thee Unpinteresting.

Vagi-Steam Herb Blend


Take a good look at this picture, as I will be referring back to it later.

Look at what I found on Etsy today…Vagi-Steam Herb Blend. Prepare yourself for this one because it’s a lou-lou.

The seller gives a huge description about this but it sure is some interesting reading:

Maya healers and midwives used bajos, an ancient healing practice. Bajos (ba-hoes) is a Spanish word that translates to Vaginal Steam Bath. Traditional Korean healers used this healing method as well, they call it chai-yok. Healers use the vagi-steam (vagina steam) to aid women with chronic fertility issues, as well as to maintain healthy fertility.

The steam from the herbal tea rises and absorbs into your skin & orifice. This steaming treatment stimulates the production of hormones to maintain uterine health, aids regular menstrual cycles, helps correct digestive disorders while soothing the nervous system. The natural antibiotic and anti-fungal properties are said to help maintain internal health as well as keeping your skin looking young. (Wait, this keeps your SKIN looking young? THAT skin needs to look young? Who knew?)

The combination of 14 different herbs work to nourish, tone, heal, bring in fresh oxygenated blood, promote cleansing, and make supple the vaginal and uterine tissues. The moist heat opens the pores of the tissues it comes into contact with. The water vapor carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, including volitile oils. This is absorbed into the tissues and enters the bloodstream, having a direct healing affect on the reproductive system. Vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.

Women who may benefit from vagi steam would be those with the following conditions: uterine fibroids, painful menstruation, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse, irregular menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, reproductive adhesion/scar tissue, previous vaginal tear or episiotomy, and dark purple or brown blood at the onset or end of menses.

In some cases a woman should not do a vagi steam, these are: extremely heavy menstrual cycles, do not do during your period, if you have a vaginal infection, open wounds, sores, or blisters, do not do if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. 

Then she tells us how do do our very own Vagi-Steam treatment at home, because “spas across the US charge a pretty penny for this treatment.” (30 mins for $50-75! Whaaattt?) Please refer back to the picture at the beginning of this post and note the chair in the background in order to give yourself a visual.

How to do a Traditional Vagi-Steam:
You need a slatted chair or modified stool/chair to let steam through. Preferably made of natural materials such as wood, canvas, or bamboo. And a large stainless steel stock pot, large enough to boil a gallon of water. You also can use two chairs (just simple dining room chairs or such) and you place the steaming pot between the two chairs and then you sit down with one “cheek” on each chair.
Boil 1 gallon of water with 1 cup (about 25 g) of Vagi-Steam Herb Blend for 10 minutes. Continue to steep off of the stove for an additional 5 minutes. Place pot or bowl under the chair/stool. Test how hot the steam is. Put the inside of your forearm over the steam to test. Remember your genitals are very sensitive to heat, you do not want to burn them! Do not sit down until the steam is comfortable for you. Sit down. Be sure you are not wearing underwear and none of your clothing is hanging in the pot. Cover your entire lower half, all the way to the ground with a blanket. Wrap another blanket around the upper half of your body. Keep it wrapped around you, stay warm. Steam for 20-30 minutes. Keep warm, go to bed for 1 hour.
Be careful over the next 24 hours to protect your entire body from cold drafts, keep warm and avoid any sudden temperature changes.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want hot steam anywhere near my nether region. Imagine getting that burned? Sweet Mother of Pearl, that would HURT! Explain that one at the Emergency Room. You’ll make their Hall of Fame, I promise. Also, how many people have a chair with a hole cut in the middle lying around the house? If you don’t,  you’ll have to construct one and really make sure that mother is sanded down to perfection, because the last thing you need is a splinter by your who-ha, am I right? She does say you can use a slatted chair, but I don’t think that would have the same effect as the chair with the open hole in it. If you’re going to do it, do it right! Another question I have is what season of the year do you think it’d be best to do this, after all of the “avoid sudden temperature change, keep warm” warnings? This would take some serious planning, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of time.

If you are interested in getting yourself some Vagi-Steam, color yourself lucky  because August is buy 2, get 1 free month! That’s right…if you buy two at $17.95 each, you get a third one for free. That’s a whole lot of Vagi-Steaming! If you decide to try it,  good luck with that. Personally, I’m out.

Vagi-Steam Herb Blend…That’s Shitsy! (and has potential to be quite painful if done hastily!)

PS – I really think we all learned a little something new today. You’re welcome! Carry on!

The Bra Planter


Look at what I found on Pinterest today…A Bra Planter!  OMFG! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times people have actually repinned this under “Gardening”, “Home Decor” and “For the Yard”. Yes, there are actually people who think this is a good idea.

One of the pins even includes the directions:

Spray painted bra hanging planter. Fabric sewn to the bottom, layered with chicken wire, soil and flowers. Fun and sassy!

SASSY?!? No, that is flat out Whiskey Tango!

First of all, there is no reason to upcycle your bra! When it gets all stretched out, THROW IT THE HELL OUT! I am racking my brain trying to figure out what would even possess someone to come up with this. I’ve got nothing. Here’s a thought…splurge a little on some pots that can hang on a fence people…anything but this!

Secondly, look at that stained up piece of shit! I’m hoping it got stained from watering the plants after the poor choice of upcycling, and not before. How can anyone think this is a good look in their yard? Imagine going to someone’s house for a BBQ and seeing that? What would you even say?!? “Hey, I like the way your old bra color coordinates with your flowers?”  Can you imagine the looks on the faces of the other moms when they come over to pick their child up from a play date? Those play dates would come to a screeching halt at the sight of that.

I cannot believe the comments people have written under some of them either:

* “The bigger, the better with a bra planter!”

* “Not if you wear an A cup! Two measly pansies!”

* “Your cup runneth over!”

* “Give your plants “a lift” with a bra planter!”

* “Tacky, maybe. Do I like it? Hell yes!”

What a pack of assholes! That is such a bad idea that I am almost at a loss for words. This just may be the worst idea I have ever seen on Pinterest!

The Bra Planter…I dub thee Unpinteresting and then some!
