How the hell is it December already? It feels like we didn't even have a November, as if they just went straight from October to December. Perhaps the stores being filled with Xmas stuff all last month had something to do with that. Either way, December is here and that means the seasonal treats are popping up left 'n right. And Little Debbie is back once again with my favorite Christmas Tree Cakes. Some of you probably recall me mentioning them in a blog post last year, but this year she's got a whole Christmas arsenal up her sleeves.
Now there's no chance in hell that I'll be able to find all of these treats in my grocery store, because grocery stores like that only exist in dreams where the shelves are stocked with everything you want and it's all free and Billy Idol sings "Run Rudolph Run" to you at the check-out counter and your grocery cart is actually a jet-powered go-kart which also happens to be able to fly and shoot grenades which contain mini bear traps inside them as shrapnel that latches onto the throats of any other shoppers who dare to get in your way and when you get home your groceries unload themselves and float into your golden refrigerator that happens to be shaped like Bionic Bigfoot and just as you're about to eat 500 Little Debbie snacks without gaining any weight whatsoever, Batman, The Jolly Green Giant and Grape Ape all show up at your place with a Nintendo Wii system and a 200" plasma screen TV because they need a fourth person to join them in this brand new game that hasn't even been released to the public because it's so realistic that if your character gets punched, you actually feel the pain in your loins, but you don't feel any pain since you're now a part of the "awesome foursome" who are untouchable gaming gods and you realize that the groceries you bought were magic groceries which refill themselves as soon as you take a treat out of the box, so you offer some treats to your newfound friends and they unanimously vote you to be supreme king of the world and the rules of grammar don't apply to anything you type so you can have the world's longest run-on sentence and nobody would even give a damn. Man, I love those dreams.
Anyway, out of all the Little Debbie snacks, I still gotta go with the Christmas Tree Cakes as being the most appealing, though the Cookie Wreaths look pretty damned delicious too. Hope I can find some of those. Which Little Debbie holiday snack is your favorite and why?
In other news, we're going to Las Vegas this weekend for the first time ever. Now, considering a) we're not rich and b) we wouldn't piss away a bunch of money on gambling even if we were - tell me, what other things are a must see for Vegas first-timers? Touristy and non-touristy. I realize I might not even get a chance to look at all of your suggestions before I leave, but if I have a good enough time, it's likely that I'll go back again in the not too distant future and I'll try to check out some of your best activity ideas then.
Alright, I've got a box of Christmas Tree Cakes with my name on it and Batman 'n crew are tired of leaving that game on pause while I update the I-Mockery blog, so I had better get goin'. Have a spiffy weekend all!
p.s.: We've got another big surprise Flash game coming up later this month!

Also, 99 cent frozen margaritas and half pound hot dogs at slots of fun.
Also, don't stay at the Circus Circus... I'm not even afraid of clowns but the decor creeped me out.

Best. Run-on. Sentence. Ever.
Shane Skekel (Guest) on 12/01/2006 8:28 pm
For Vegas, Penn & Teller mainly. Other reasons I refuse to disclose.

The wandering klingons make me giggle there.

Yes! Christmas is on it's way. Preparing gifts and greeting cards is my favorite thing, because it is a perfect way to make your friends and family feel happy. By the way, at Huliq you can find a great source for online greeting cards.

Personally, I'm really into the chocolate holiday snack cakes, because they're so toxic that they cleanse my body of parasites while leaving me (mostly) intact. Diabetes here I come! (they were on sale for a DOLLAR A BOX at a local store)
Noah (Guest) on 12/02/2006 11:18 am
Those Holiday cakes are my absoloute fucking favorties. I also went out to the store after reading -RoG-'s candy cane report and got like 5 of every box he talked about. Call me a toolbox or a sheep or whatever, I just really LOVE Candy Canes!
Mike P (Guest) on 12/02/2006 11:48 am
I'm simply surprised you mentioned "Grape Ape". I had no idea anyone but me remembered the poor fellow.
Frostor (Guest) on 12/02/2006 11:49 am
Well, I lived in Vegas briefly, and as sick as I got of it, I'd visit Chinatown. They have a lot of nifty shops, including a martial arts weaponry place where I got a sweet pair of sai. And to top it all off, a little restaurant called "Shanghai Noon." No sign of either Jackie Chan or Owen Wilson, though.

Even though I've known of and ate these christmas products for years (And they're tasty enough to eat all year round), it's cool to read aboot them...
Vegas, Vegas, Vegas. I knwo one of those shitty G4 (Worst excuse of a channel ever!) shows talked of Vegas. You can rent a gun and shoot targets at some gun store, which would be hilarious to see.
And is the upcoming flash game THE flash game we've all been waiting on? Either way, I'll play it. The Pickleman game and that HAunted House game was love too. Good times!
ToxinBlackheart (Guest) on 12/02/2006 4:14 pm
I live in Vegas, so come on over.
In all seriousness, Blue Man Group is a pretty neat show.
Blodigar (Guest) on 12/02/2006 8:40 pm
Mandalay-bay has a cool aquarium you could check out, oh and you might want to take a trip to the Excaliber hotel but don't rent a room there if the only place they have in stock has all the windows facing a wall, and don't say it can't happen!
P.S. In a very simple statement take the Big-shot ride, you won't forget it.
Codiekitty (Guest) on 12/02/2006 11:57 pm
I like the tree cakes.
I haven't been to Las Vegas in so long that I don't know what to recommend, but maybe you'll want to pop into Excalibur and tell us if they still have that guy in the cloak who reaches out to touch you whenever you pass by him.
Jimbob (Guest) on 12/03/2006 4:18 am
I like tree cakes
I have been to vegas; the prostitution ring can cause more money to fly out of your pocket (my friend went to one and lost more than $3000 of his money there); but other than that; try going on a Los Ventruas trip and killing everything you see.
MEK (Guest) on 12/03/2006 8:01 am
I agree with Tim: "Best. Run-on. Sentence. Ever."
Also, hope everything alright wehen you go to Las Vegas! Good luck!

Random observation: Is it me, or has Little Debbie significantly amped up the quality of their packaging design for the holiday season? I'm not saying they look outstanding or anything, but if memory serves most of their product packaging looks like dirt.
Either way you're insane, because pretty much the only good product they have is the good ol' standard honeybuns. But your tastebuds were clearly destroyed by some sort of toxic substance at some point in your childhood, so...
Ninjawolf (Guest) on 12/03/2006 12:27 pm
Angryhydralisk had a good idea but apparently didn't fully understand what was going on with it. He's referring to an episode of X-Play, which is pretty much the ONLY good show on G4 (the only other decent one I remember being was that one where they told you the history of videogame companys/games, which was actually pretty intresting to watch, but from what I hear the channels shows have been changed to have 10% more shit), they decided to see actually try some shooting at a LAs VEgas shooting range. In all honesty, shooting ranges are nothing wierd. However, HERE it wasn't just a gun. It was a fucking machine gun.

Nintendo Recalls All Wii-motes After Class-Action Lawsuit by Thompson*
As we reported earlier this week, gamers have been complaining about unexpected problems concerning the Wii-mote. One of the problems frequently aggravating players is a flimsy wrist strap that allows the controller to fly aimlessly through the air if the player loses his grip.
Reports around the country tell of broken wii-motes, cracked TVs and windows, and now human injury.
While playing Wii Baseball, a twelve-year old in Michigan swung a bit too hard. The wii-mote flew out of his hands and into his grandmother’s eye. The eighty-nine year-old woman was rushed to the hospital where she was treated for a black eye.
Catching wind of the case, Jack Thompson has coerced the woman to start a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. “As evidence has proven since the days of Pong, video games kill and this elderly woman’s injury by her seemingly innocent grandson just proves that video game companies are determined to turn all children into killers,” Thompson claimed. “Nintendo claims it is family friendly, but this injury is sure to be the first of millions that can be traced to the new Wii console.”
Nintendo is currently recalling all wii-motes until they can create more secure wrist straps. Insiders at Nintendo have stated that the new wrist strap technology will be similar to prison handcuffs.
what a load of s*** huh?

I work at a Save-A-Lot over in the far-off land of Tennessee, and we stock all of those, and fudge-dipped granola bars as well. And Little Debbie Fig Bars (that i did NOT know existed).
