Sniglet Of The DayGizzledipplers (gih’ zul dip lurz) – n. Those annoying waving hands seen on the back of Winnebagos (placed there by people too lazy to be friendly on their own).

So many of you are out on the road this week, heading to Grandmother’s house, driving your dapple grey, horseless carriage or even a motor scooter to get there. If you have been on the interstates, you might have seen many campers and other recreational vehicles. Some of them have these plastic hand-shaped things in the back window that just bobs up and down, to and fro, but that’s pretty much all it does. You never see them in cars, or on trucks, even semis. So how did this little bit of suburban culture take to the highways, and how do we get rid of it? Clearly, this annoying little plastic thing might have been what started part of the road rage culture, but since I do not live anywhere near any major cities to test this theory on, I cannot say. Surely there is more to road rage than being annoying. I suppose some people have been shot at for less. Stay safe on the roads out there,and if you do have one of those bouncy hand things on the back window of your camper, make sure you wake at the drivers behind you when you remove it. Either they will wave back, give you a wide-eyed stare, or wave a gun at you. Let’s hope it is not the last one. It would ruin an already overly commercialised holiday.

Halloween Pumpkin Carving for 2011

This entry was posted in Halloween, Holidays, How To by Cleave on

This year I decided to carve me a pumpkin and found out that it is not really hard to do if you just take your time. Sure there are many Pumpkin Carving Kits out there that you can use but they are not a necessity if you have some useful things laying around the house or workshop. If you are like me you have all sorts of stuff laying around that you can use. But with any project you need to have a plan and a direction to go in. Use the tools that you have available to you like the computer that you are using right now to look at this page. You can find lots of good ideas just from the things that you look at online. You could do a scary cat, a sad dog or anything that your imagination could think of as long as it can be reduced to a simple 2 color design. My inspiration came from games that I play online.
