More Ribbons

Tonight I went out to eat with Kat, Kat’s parents, and Matt. It was at a Thai place, which was weird for me. If you know me at all, you know that I am not what you would call “daring.” But I have also learned that I can find something to eat just about anywhere I go. This is a change in policy for me, as I used to not even go to “weird” places. I realize now that that was rather jerky of me, and I apologize to all affected by that ever.

I ended up getting “BBQ Beef,” but it wasn’ BBQ like I think of BBQ. It had kind of a nutty taste to it, and it was on a bed of cabbage. I didn’t eat the cabbage, of course, but I ate a good deal of the beef.

It should be noted, too, that the restaurant had a peculiar smell to it. By “peculiar” I am, in this instance, referring to “very similar to hamster bedding. Used hamster bedding.” No one else agreed with me, but it should be noted that one of the other members had a stuffed-up nose and the other has a very bad sense of smell in general.

Matt was the last to arrive, and when he did, Kat & I anxiously awaited his first topic of conversation. You see, after the escapades of the other night, Kat had done some searching online and come up with a fanTAStic magnetic ribbon. It says: “Support magnetic ribbons.” Sometime late yesterday evening she drove by Matt’s house and stuck it to his car. He didn’t see it until tonight.

I think he was “bemused,” but Kat and I got no end of enjoyment out of it. Best. Joke. Ever.

Oh! And you know that part of the ribbon that pops out of the middle and looks a little like a piece of pizza? This one advertised “Every ribbon comes with a free alien head!” Sure enough, the little triangular piece was designed to look like the standard “grey” made famous by every alien movie you’ve ever seen. Sweet.

Thai food, magnetic ribbons, and alien heads. A good night.

    He DID say he went to a Thai restaurant, and you know how attatched he is to his cats. I fully expect him to eat friends over animals, personally.

    Apology accepted (refer to memories of summer of '93).

    Mike threatened to get one of those I Heart my Boxer ones, but I beat him to it and got a stuffed boxer with suction cup legs! Hoo hah! My way is so much cheesier!

    You know the funny thing is that I have for like the last 4 months been putting off writing a blog about those friggin magnetic ribbon things, as Meags will attest I complained about them a lot when she was down in February. Part of the reason I never got around to it was because I wanted to make my own little one just like you had described in the blog that said like "Support Magnet Sales" or "Support Our Magnets" and today I finally got around to doing it…. then I check your blog and find out it has already been done before :( Oh well, good to know somebody made it! Just for kicks, here is the one I made!
