    Question What Reminds You of KP? #7

    Two things:
    1) The day before yesterday, I bought the last two cartons of cocoa-moo out of the vending machine at work for a snack during my afternoon break. :P
    2) Today on my way home at work I stopped at Smarty-Mart - oops, I meant Wal-Mart - to pick up some liquid hand soap. Before I went to the check-out line to pay for my purchase, however, I took a quick walk through the bargain toy shelves to see if I could find any remaindered KP merchandise. Alas, no luck.
    But I did notice something that reminded me of a comment 'chutes once made regarding the color scheme on the packaging for KP merchandise. As I walked down one row full of Barbie dolls and accessories, I understood exactly what 'chutes meant by his phrase, "pink Barbie yuck:" Pink boxes as far as the eye can see - enough to make even me say, "Yuck!"

    Once in a while my cell phone will get a call from a number I don't know. I don't answer these, but I will look up the number on the Internet. I just got one from someone in Kewanee, Illinois. This reminded me of "Mentor of Discontent," since that's where Frugal Lucre said the newest Smarty Mart store was opening.

    Two more things:

    1) The other day, I saw a K-Mart commercial on TV. Their animated light-bulb mascot reminded me of the Smarty-Mart "Brain" mascot on KP.
    2) Today, I received two spam e-mails concerning "Mego" - that's one more than campy did. :P

    Watching one of my GiTS: 2nd Gig episodes, one of the characters fleeing in a boat said,

    "...We'll have company soon; head for Shegoton for the time being."

    Since it's a Japanese series, I'm nearly positive it wasn't "Shegoton," but some language homophone (Shegatin, etc), but it was interesting to hear.
    Carpe Navi: Because you never know when you'll get to go boating at government expense again.

    I recently bought a 4 disc set of the old Looney tunes with Bugs Bunny and the associated characters. These old cartoons were made with Fritz Freeling, Charles M Jones, and of course Mel Blanc doing the voicing. They were made between 1945 to 1960 or so. These are great classic cartoons.

    I'm catching up on the NY Times crosswords I missed last month. In the 10/21 puzzle, the clues for 49- and 50-Down both reminded me of KP. One was "City of Lights" for PARIS, and next to it was "____ T. Firefly, Groucho's role in Duck Soup" for RUFUS.

    Watching "The New Ron" this morning reminded me of something I'd wanted to post last week: the doors between the pool area and the enclosed parts of Deck 10 on the cruise ship open automatically with a "whoosh." Just like Senor Senior's lair.

    Two things today:
    Last weekend while browsing at my local Borders, I saw a book titled, "Bringing Home the Birkin," about finding a certain designer handbag called a "Birkin." I had to look twice at the cover, because at first glance, I thought it said, "Bringing Home the Barkin!" :P
    Today, I was visiting my buddy Mike's house, and he was talking about what a good time his little boy, Peter, had on Halloween trick-or-treating. Mike said Peter was still on a sugar buzz from all that candy when they put him to bed that night. One of our other friends jokingly asked, "Have you washed all the footprints off the ceiling yet?" Right away, I thought of little Hana running on the walls and ceiling of the Stoppable house in "Oh No! Yono!"

    A letter we had returned to us today at work because of no forwarding address had been sent out to a guy whose last name was Kimberly...
    Also, in the company lunchroom, I refilled the hand soap dispenser by the kitchen sink. I put in a new refill package of "Kimcare" liquid soap from the Kimberly-Clark corporation. :P
