It should be set to 'W' for WUMBO!

Posted April 13th, 2011 at 2:48 PM by Mr Cat Dog

Power cuts

A few hours ago, we suffered a power cut for what must have been the first time in nearly five years. Obviously, the internet as well as the television went out amongst other things. Had this been just a few years ago, my brother and I would have been crawling up the walls, but my parents would have been content to read a book via candlelight or just talk or something. Five years later, however, can do a lot to change the technological dynamics. I have an iPhone and my brother has a Blackberry; we both have laptops so we could still do work for a fair while until the power would come back. We were fine.

My parents on the other hand... well, the tables were certainly turned in that regard. It's just amazing what increases in technology can do to people and how much we rely on it, even if we don't think so at the time. Without TV or their desktop computer, they were completely flabbergasted about trying to entertain themselves and kept trying to pester us about the most trivial of things. Maybe it was good in that it gave them some genuine time to reflect on stuff, but it was still funny to see them absent-mindedly try to turn lights on whenever they entered different rooms, not realising about the power outage. A zombie-like force of habit emerged in all of us when it came to that!

The power returned about an hour later, only to vanish again - and be greeted by a cacophony of noise from the living room, where my parents had their sense of security smashed all over again - for about fifteen minutes. There's still the concern that it may go again... who knows? Might as well save the draft at this point...


Patrick Star

Thanks to this thread that I found while reading Opposite Day's blog, which is now the greatest thread ever in the history of the PokéCommunity, I've been spending the past 2 hours quoting Patrick Star to everyone in earshot... so why not spread the wealth to PC? Enjoooooy!
  • Is mayonnaise an instrument?
  • Sandy's a girl?
  • But don't geniuses live in a lamp?
  • I'm Squidward. I'm Squidward. I'm Squidward, Squidward, Squidward.
  • If I saw that guy, I'd have a few choice words for him. Like "you" and "are" and "a jerk"!
  • All hail the magic conch!
  • Dumb people are always blissfully unaware of how dumb they really are.
  • You've got it set to 'M' for mini, when it should be set to 'W' for wumbo! I wumbo. You wumbo. He, she, me wumbo. Wumboing. Wumbology: the study of wumbo. It's first grade, SpongeBob!
  • Well, maybe it is stupid. But it's also dumb!
  • Once upon a time, there was an ugly barnacle. It was so ugly that everybody died. The end.
  • Do I get my award yet?
  • Hahaha, hahaha, it's a giraffe!
  • That monster ate Wormy!
  • We're not talking about some dumb mail fraud scheme or hijacking here: WE STOLE A BALLOON!
  • Where's the leak, ma'am?
  • Oh, boy: 3am!
  • Wow, you guys are good. I was the last person I would have suspected, but I was looking for me all the time! It's the perfect crime!
  • The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma.

Plugging shamelessly

Might as well use this to plug the best thing to happen to PC since sliced bread: The PokéCommunity 30 Day Song Challenge!* Check out the first post and come and join in, if you want to. The more, the merrier! I also now know how to embed YouTube videos as well, which had previously eluded me before, so yay me!

*May not actually be the best thing to happen to PC since sliced bread. Maybe since sliced pickle...

    Need more Ugly Barnacle in my opinion. :3 I would think of more, but I find they just show up in casual conversation with me rather than having to think about Spongebob quotes. To be honest, it's all I will watch on TV. >.< I'm obsessed!
