CBS’s Jericho baleeted

Entertainment news source Variety.com is reporting that CBS’s “Jericho” has been cancelled. “Jericho” was about a small town struggling to survive after multiple nuclear terrorist attacks. It ran for one season. I’ll avoid spoilers in this post in case you want to go back and catch the season one episodes. Sure, the show had its […]

Hoopla game review

Hoopla game review

Hoopla, made by the same folks who brought you Cranium, is a co-operative game that can be played by two or more players. Similar to Cranium, each color-coded category makes you do a specific whacky challenge. The object of the game is for the entire group to complete eight + n challenges, where n is […]

Where have you been?

Where have you been?

I am still recovering from my week in California, so today is as good as any to bust out this questionnaire on Travbuddy.com. The quiz asks what states you’ve visited in the USA, plus major countries. Travbuddy will tell you what percentage of the worlds’ countries you’ve visited, but given the number of options on […]

PSA: Costco-branded Kirkland child chewable vitamins taste nasty

PSA: Costco-branded Kirkland child chewable vitamins taste nasty

I used to (somewhat regularly) take a multivitamin, especially when I was losing fat thanks to my personal trainer. The problem with swallowing vitamins is that I normally had a stomach ache afterwards. If I ate beforehand, I just felt a little queasy. If I didn’t eat breakfast, I would be nauseous all day to […]

STFU ringtone

STFU ringtone

Lady Jaye has an annoying co-worker who calls her at all hours of the day. Lady Jaye is forced to either put her phone on silent, or frantically pound the “quiet” key on her cell phone every time Annoy-o-tron decides she’s bored. I knew there was a better fix, so I created the STFU ringtone. […]

With a tagline of “Looking for 10 minutes of fun?” how could one go wrong with Zigity, a game brought to you by the same folks who made the fantastic party game Cranium? Lady Jaye picked this up for us for our anniversary last month. No tags for this post.

You may have noticed some slight changes with the Gibberish layout. With the list getting a bit lengthy, I implemented a pulldown navigation scheme for categories and archives.

Hello Kitty water cooler review

Hello Kitty water cooler review

Lady Jaye gave me the Hello Kitty water cooler last December for holiday. It operates just like a “real” water cooler, except that the HK doesn’t cool the water for you. There’s even a removable drip collection tray. The water cooler comes with a 64 ounce water jug. The spigot is nicely constructed, although the […]

Car floor mount for Garmin i5 GPS

Car floor mount for Garmin i5 GPS

It’s been almost a month since I bought my Garmin i5 car navigation GPS system. The i5 comes with a suction cup window mount. It worked okay on my Montero’s windshield, but it has a problem handling the sharp sweep of Lady Jaye’s Mazda 3S windshield. The GPS unit is uncomfortably out of reach when […]
