Jingle bells, Batman smells... Robin laid an egg. The Batmobile lost its wheels and the Joker got awaaaaay. I had to do a double-take when I saw these in the store, but it's true, Cadbury's Mini-Eggs are now officially a part of the holiday season. As you may or may not know, these are basically my all-time favorite chocolate candies, but until now, they were only available on Easter each year. Some of you might recall how I found a Cadbury egg with a nipple on it back in February, and it quickly became the infamous "Nipple Egg". But yeah, the eggs are back for the holidays and I couldn't be happier. Ok, they don't actually call them "eggs" on the package, but there's no doubt it's them. The same milk chocolate with the think sugar shell. The only difference is that these ones come in festive white, red and green colors. I must apologize to my stomach in advance, because I'll be gorging on these things all month long and while my taste buds will surely be happy, my stomach is going to hate me for so much sugary cruelty.
Another thing I picked up was this Nerds Fun Book. These things have been out for many years, sporting a variety of candies, but for one reason or another I realized I had never actually purchased one. Well considering that I felt like eating some Nerds and never did learn what was actually inside these "fun books", I decided it was high time I purchased one.
Hmmm... yeah... not very "fun" looking is it. I was at least hoping for some kind of mini-book containing a Nerds story, but instead I got "fun" word scrambles, connect the dots and mazes. Oh well, at least it comes with FOUR boxes of Nerds including the "Frosty" winter Nerds that only come out each winter, so all is not lost.
In non-candy news, I just got a copy of "Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest" on DVD. What can I say, it was a really fun movie to watch and I thought the special effects were some of the best I had seen in recent years. Plus the 2-disc special edition DVD case is super shiny. SHINY! :O How could I pass that up? The best thing is that if you hold it up at just the right angle, you can see your reflection appear behind the ship that's being attacked by the giant Kraken. It makes you look like an evil sea god, commanding his Kraken to destroy the pirate ship.
See what I mean? Jesus, I think I'm having more fun with the box than the actual movie. I need help. Oh yeah, I also picked up the long-awaited Richard Donner cut of "Superman II". I haven't had time to watch it yet, but I can't wait to see extra battle footage of the greatest big screen bad guy of all time... General Zod!
On a final note, I went to a Christmas party for the place where Re works last night. They took us out to a nice restaurant near Venice Beach (Lilly's), and who is sitting a few feet away from us? Christian Slater! If I had a football with me, I would've chucked it at him and shouted "I love my dead gay son!" but alas, I had no pigskin on-hand so I kept my mouth shut. Besides, the guy was on a dinner date with Maria Bello and I didn't want to interrupt their dinner, even though I wanted to tell him how fucking great "True Romance" was. As if that wasn't enough, Camryn Manheim then walked into the restaurant to stop by and say hi to him. It was weird seeing celebrities just hanging out in the restaurant. And hey, now I get to say that I used the same restaurant bathroom that Christian Slater probably snorted some cocaine in. Hooray!
And yes, pics from my trip to Las Vegas are forthcoming. Hopefully I'll have them up online by early next week at the latest. In the meantime, go see the Ultimate Warrior rape Santa Claus!

Oops, I typed Jingle bells twice by accident. Thanks Bob.

-RoG-, as soon as I read the Ultimate Warrior article, I went to my bathroom to quickly expose of my dinner..
Jesse B (Guest) on 12/07/2006 12:49 am
Ah yes, The Ultimate Warrior.
Talking about living the gimmick, the man changed his name to "Warrior"
If I know anything, its Wrestling.
the boy (Guest) on 12/07/2006 6:13 am
Dude, how can you mention Christian Slater and NOT mention fucking "Gleaming the Cube"!?
-RoG- (Guest) on 12/07/2006 11:28 am
Malon, from now on, whenever you see Santa, you'll picture him naked on the floor, next to a satisfied Warrior.
Jesse B, yep and he also has a blog on the web which features some of the most hilariously insane blatherings you'll find on the web. I wish he'd update it more often.
the boy, indeed, you're absolutely right about that one. Someday I'm gonna get rich, and when I do, the first thing I'm gonna buy is a swimming pool with a bunker underneath it which I can live in and build a metal skateboard. You just can't go wrong with that movie. What's hilarious too is how he holds onto speeding cars in that movie while riding the skateboard. I tried that when I was in high school and once a car gets up to about 20mph the skateboard wobbles so much under your feet, no matter how much pressure you put on it, that it's impossible to keep going. Not to mention that if you hit a single little pebble you'd go FLYING. So him holding onto that dude's speeding Corvette in the movie was a load of shit haha.
Jesse B (Guest) on 12/07/2006 11:44 am
Hes busy either
A) talk at alot of Colleges
b) playing with his 1/5 Warrior America figure he got for signing with Jakks for the classic superstar line (I'm also a wrestling figure collecter. I got me a Hacksaw, Piper, Hogan, Undertaker, ect.)
c) Talking to the gods about how it is placed on him to lead the world to the path of the Warrior. Or crashing Hogan's plane on the way to Wrestlemaina.
Blodigar (Guest) on 12/07/2006 5:45 pm
Aww man I wanted to see Christian Slater and tell him to never work with Uwe Boll on a any of his movies because they all suck. But I guess I should just be happy that I talked to Bruce Campbell. Wait, was that a shameless plug? Man I suck.

Connect the Dots rules! I dont care what anyone says.
Rusty (Guest) on 12/08/2006 11:50 am
I used to play join the dots on my ugly ex-girlfriend's acne-covered back. True story.
It failed to rule.
Mystie (Guest) on 12/08/2006 5:57 pm
Hmmm... are you gonna try this "Chocolate Filled Cookie BonBons" recipe on the back of the Cadbury bag? It seems like a lot of work to go through just for 36 cookies. I wonder if I have any coconut flakes...
Also, my car battery died on the way home from buying these things. :(
Mandi (Guest) on 12/08/2006 6:25 pm
I want to touch both Cadbury mini-eggs and Christian Slater very innapropriately..
What?! Stop looking at me like that!!
Ninjawolf (Guest) on 12/08/2006 10:07 pm
It always seems weird to me when a celebrity changes there legal name to their stage name like that. Its especially weird with how Warrior did it. His career as a wrestler was over, so all he could really hope to do was make money of a distribution, which doesn't seem to be happening. At least when Alice Cooper, for example, did this he still had a career and had a last name.
shannon (Guest) on 12/09/2006 10:58 pm
i would have walked up to christian slater and told him i named my rat after his girlifriend in True Romance. which is true. i had a white rat and named her Alabama. coolest rat ever. and i would have made sure christian slater knew that.

All hail the shiny packaging of Pirates of the Carribean.

It's amazing what you will find when you start searching online for things. I came across your post when doing some candy research. Yes, I am a candy FREAK!
"I must apologize to my stomach in advance, because I'll be gorging on these things all month long and while my taste buds will surely be happy, my stomach is going to hate me for so much sugary cruelty."
I laughed when I read this because many many moons ago I got sick on Cadbury (the regular ones) and I didn't eat a single one for years. However, I gave up my fast a long time ago. :)
I wonder if these are still available at Christmas time... I had NO IDEA that they ever were. I suddenly feel a deep sense of loss. And I call myself a candy freak! :(
