If you're looking for me, I'll just be having fun with Ramen noodles. Or...y'know...being wiped out in the Time of Wrath. Something.

I found the old age home for retired mailboxes:



And I've been looking for magazines ever since Arizaphale alerted me to the existence of "Bacon Busters":


My grocery store didn't have Bacon Busters, but it did have this:


I didn't even know you could HAVE fun with Ramen Noodles. I thought it was just something college-aged kids eat instead of food upon running out of grocery money.

On the other hand, a fun zone at the pharmacy seems logical enough...if you're into that kind of thing.



Signs can be SO bossy. Like this one, ordering people to stop suffering:

Because everyone goes to a reception hall to suffer, and it must be stopped!

Apparently.

If things go as planned my computer should be posting this all by it's lonesome while I am nowhere around.

So that's pretty much it except for this:


I don't even know what to say about this one. The math alone is astounding. And I truly appreciate the visual aid. I'm always kind of lost without a time line.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and I hope your not caught up in that first tribulation thing. A quarter of the population sounds like kind of a lot.

What I want to know is how any person is supposed to comprehend that sign while driving by. I stared at it for 3 minutes and I still didn't understand what I was looking at!

MarkD60 said...

I just woke up and those signs kind of make me seasick...

Marlene said...

I love the bossy sign...lol....and I agree with what Lara said. Who the heck can read something like that when driving past? Sheesh, it's like they want to cause an accident so it is the end of the world for that person.

pat said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your signs! And that bacon magazine....too funny.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Lara & Marlene - Well...y'know, the thing is that it's not all THAT far from a traffic light. So if The-Guy is driving and we end up way back at the light, I get to study it for awhile. It's sort of an amazing feat. I would have loved to have seen whoever it was actually doing the calculations. I can only imagine. Funny on the "end of the world for that person" Maureen!

Sorry Mark! But I think that was maybe a migraine making you sick. Maybe you can get help in the Pharmacy fun zone. :-) :-) :-)

Thanks Pat! Arizaphale actually found the magazine - it's a doozy, isn't it?!?

Tracy said...

does that time line even work out? I kind of got lost, lol.

Love your signs.
I found a sign I thought was odd, until I posted it, and apparently it isn't unusual in the States, lol.

The Ceol Mors said...

What is that time line saying?!?! Is the end near or has it already happened and we didn't notice? New math is so confusing...

Nicki said...

These are among some of your best oddities collected to date. My daughter would be all for the Fun with Ramen noodles - except she has learned of the sodium levels and cut back substantially. I don't even know what to say about the magazine - but the last shot of the time-line - haha! I collected several pictures warning Hell is straight ahead and asking "do you know where you're going?" - this sign would fit perfectly. I suspect the large telephone number is to call and ask what the sign really says because who could read all of that passing by at say 55 mph?

Reds said...

Can't believe there is a bacon magazine!!! And that last sign is kind of scary!! Love your sign posts!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Tracy - I had missed that one while I was away! That IS funny that the mall was handgun shaped!

Cid - It's hard to tell, isn't it?

Thanks Nicki and Reds! I got out of the car to photograph it and I STILL can't read all of it!

Slyde said...

where the heck do you find these pictures???

Angela2932 said...

You have me in hysterics!!!! I'm not getting seasick, like Mark, but my head IS spinning in circles, almost like in the Exorcist!

You are too funny! When is your book coming out?

Angela2932 said...

Jill! Where were you in south Texas (comment on my blog?) I want to retire in south Texas! (If the Austin area is considered south, that is.)

Lotus07 said...

I always wondered where old mail boxes went to die....the old mailbox graveyard.....fascinating.

I want to know on the prophecy timeline, when Warp drive is discovered and when Amy Whinehouse will return as the goddess of fertility and peace.....it has to be in there somewhere.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Slyde - All from around Houston except for the Bacon Busters magazine Arizaphale sent me!

Angela! I KNEW someone had asked me where in south Texas we went! But I couldn't remember where! Figured it at had been at 2peas somewhere! We went to Rockport for two nights & Corpus Christi/Padre for two nights. And thank you!

Bruce - I think the fertility and peace thing is scheduled for a week from Thursday. Glad I could clear that and the mailboxes up for you!

Kerry McKibbins said...

Where do you find this stuff!???

I'm reading The Arsonists Guide and I REALLY like it!
Thank you so much for telling me about it. I've haven't really come across a book I really liked lately. You solved my problem!
Thank you!!

Maria said...

Jill: Thank you so much for the tips for my P & S. I think I should try to spend some time REALLY playing with the camera. I would then probably (maybe) get a little better at it. Loved your photo of the mail boxes. I guess I had never thought much about what happens to those mailboxes when they die . . .

Maria said...

Your comment about needing a timeline just cracked me up! LOL! It'd be nice to have such a concrete timeline all the time . . .

Janet said...

Good grief, who could even read that billboard?

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

You're welcome Maria! Time lines are so useful, aren't they? :-)

Janet - Well, I sit in the passenger seat quite a bit. :-)

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Oops! Oh and Kerry! I'm so glad you're enjoying The Arsonist's Guide!
