Alvin and The Chipmunks: It’s Word Play!

For those of you weary cynics and critics who have lost the ability to appreciate such harmless, good-natured entertainment, a modern hybrid CGI/live action Chipmunks movie may not sound like a good idea, but personally, I can’t get enough!

I was going to write a whole long thing about my love for these super cute anthropomorphic little balls of fur as well as my appreciation for the very well-executed, award-winning recording technique, but if you’re already a fan, you probably know all that already and if you’re not, you can hopefully at least appreciate the above clip on word play.

Video clip from the 2011 sequel “Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked”.

“Wicked Looks”

I don’t really dress up for Halloween, but I still keep my eye out for costume ideas. Of course, I want something at least somewhat unique/original– sometimes the more obscure/esoteric, but almost always, the less effort required, the better.

Still, is it weird that when I saw the wet n wild Fantasy Makers makeup display at the store, I immediately thought of dressing up as Lisbeth Salander in full warpaint? (From 2009 film The Girl Who Played With Fire.)

Psst… Want some crack sauce?

This is what really fuels us at Matterport.

(Delicious sweet, but spicy sauce as part of Vietnamese-themed lunch menu by Patrick, our trusty “company chef” (totally feel weird saying that, but there’s not really a better way to describe him) from Andro’s Rostilj.)

LEGO Gay Marriage

Minifigures out in the open are always at risk for being “manipulated” or “posed”. In addition to silly notes, found The Joker and Two-Face bond in holy matrimony with their trusty cheerleader by their side and none other than the Dark Knight (Batman) presiding over the auspicious ceremony. (photo #1)

Shortly thereafter, we had to sort of play musical desks as we scooch to make room for new hires. The Joker and Two-Face happen to fall over like this during the move (photo #2)– sheesh, they can’t wait to consummate!

UPS: Sorry We Missed You; ME: Really? Are you though?

Dammit! Been eagerly waiting for a package for 2 WHOLE WEEKS aka FOREVER (well, at least after the introduction of Amazon Prime). Didn’t go out until almost 9pm and was only gone for about 20 MINUTES, but still managed to:

  1. miss the UPS guy,
  2. miss him the ONE TIME somebody actually needed to sign for the package.

And I almost always prefer UPS because, unlike USPS (or at least my mailman), UPS actually attempts to deliver packages to my door/directly to me before/rather than always just leaving it at the apartment office if it doesn’t fit in my tiny mailbox (i.e., everything). And of course, the office is only open during most people’s work hours (albeit 7 days/week) and on the other side of the very large apartment complex.

Okay, sorry, out of my system. SMH, first world problems. Get over yourself, me.

Things I’ll Forget To Remember

Caught the flu and worked from home for most of the week to take it easy/get better/recover (obviously), but also, as I was repeatedly told, to keep my cooties at home/to myself (surprisingly, nobody wanted to play Ookie Mouth).

Returned to the office to find above coworker hijinks. (The notepad/keyboard pad itself is mine and I do actually use it to help keep track of stuff.)

Ha ha, I missed you guys too.
