Do This, Don't Do That, Can't You Read the Signs

This Saturday Scavenger Hunt word was chosen by the Alien. His word was dull. I wasn't sure how to photograph that, so I chose signs. Most signs tend to be boring. Don't do this, come see that, here's where this is, there's where you should be going, blah, blah blah. So, here are some photos of some dull signs or posters.

The top one was leftover from a flood benefit this Summer.

This one is another no skateboarding sign around my office. Of course, this one was made less dull by the giant penis that was drawn onto the skateboarding figure. I've been looking at skateboarders a little differently lately...

I went home on Friday and both the girls were getting ready to leave for the football game in Cedar Rapids. I got them on their way and went running. I was still pretty exhausted and feeling like I might be getting a cold, so I only ran a four mile route.

Here is a sign from a building on campus.

I had a date with my couch for the rest of the evening. I ate leftover fajitas and watched American Gangster. I know I'm probably the last person on the planet to see it, but I really liked it.

Lastly, this is the lettering on a bus.

The girls got home around 10'ish. Stinky went with another friend to her new boyfriend's house to meet his parents and play Rockband. Coadster stayed with me, since I think I was actually glued to my couch at that point. We ate chocolate and popcorn and I had exactly two beers and we got under a gigantic comforter and watched a girl movie.

Some might think of that as a very dull Friday night, but it was just what I needed.

I haven't seen Am. Gangster yet, so you're not the last one...and I love when you're like "I only ran my four-mile route" - it makes me smile. I still have never run four miles I don't think.

Ooh, snap. Last night we climbed under a blanket, drank beer and watched some episodes of "Red Dwarf". It's clearly blankie, beer and movies/TV season again.

Wow, that skateboarder is not dull in the least!

I didn't realize there was a word for the week. Who can I check on to see what's on for next week?

I miss Evil-E.

I'm having a girl day in today. I need it badly. Comfy couch here I come.

A ban on hyperphallic skateboarders? Perhaps they should be allowed if they have a safety helmet on ... that... too.

I looked for the word at Random Crap, and all I found was last week's No.

Great pictures from Iowa. It sounds like you had a good weekend. I miss Evil-E online too.

Now I wish I had a book from junior high that some kid had drawn on. They made that book less dull too, by drawing pictures and captions.

I wonder if that skateboarding "add-on" was drawn by an actual skateboarder?

Good idea! Signs are dull...and lets face it, when you've seen one mondo penis you've seen them all. haha!

Sounds like a fine Friday night to me. Riding the couch is one of my all time favorite activities.
