Drastic 216: "Kittenesque" to Coin a Phrase

Seriously, there is a John Lennon action figure you can buy

It comes in regular old 7 inch scale, so John Lennon can hang out with your Ninja Turtle toys and what not and you can get the 18 inch version shown up top. It speaks and everything. By the by, it’s all I can do not to get some of the Turtles toys from the new movie. Well, I say “new,” the awesome one released in March. They look pretty shitty and that’s my saving grace. For now. But Michelangelo has a skateboard..

So yeah, no voting thingy. I’m technically on holidays here, visiting my Dad in Brussels, and there is lots to do. Why, on Monday, I got lost in Ikea. Well, sort of. Are all Ikea’s that big?? I am in two minds about Ikea. On the one hand, all the stuff looks great and handily enough, there are little play centres dotted around the place at nearly the precise moment I started to get bored of looking at couches and lampshades and beds and what have you, but on the other hand, I know as I get older, Ikea will literally sap the life out of me. I saw people, walking around in a zombie like state on a quest to have stuff and things for their homes and it’s a chilling future. Maybe those people fiercely opposed to Marriage could use “Don’t let Ikea Win” as a slogan??

Also, I’m thinking about faking senility when I’m in my seventies, just for shits and giggles. I’ll be seventy years old for gods sake, let me have some fun. So if my grandchildren are reading this, haha, got you.
