It's been Easter again. Last year I did that big Egg-stravaganza thing, but this year it's just a little photo collection. But why have I gone all half-assed? For one, there wasn't really enough to make a real article out of, and none is really as interesting as that mystery chocolate was. Secondly, it's more or less that same thing as last year, but with more of the "random stuff" than things that stand out. Finally, I'm just too friggin' lazy to even try to pump that many words out when it's not meant to be done. And finally for real this time, I can't put together a second good intro for an article about the same thing as another. Not that my intros are all that great, but damned if I'm gonna do it.
To make up for the relatively small amount of text, you'll notice that I make the font a lot bigger. Now it looks like something Maddox wrote! Hooray. But I have to get this ball rolling, so without any further ado, we shall plunge right into the second and last of my Easter-themed articles!
First off we have the Peeps Bunnies. Now I wasn't a huge Peeps fan before, as you may recall, but this is stupid. Go back to the birds. Sure it's the same thing, but at least make the damn things white or some other bunny colour. Pink is not a colour that I like to be associated with. When I use Peach in Super Smash Bros Melee, I always switch to the white costume. When using Zelda, I'm always Sheik. I don't like pink. Peeps were created yellow and should stay yellow. I refused to read a paper we got in math class because it was pink. Boo, Peeps, boo.
Next thing I took a picture of is the marshmallow bunnies. More pink here, but an acceptable level of such. As you can see, there are only four bunnies in the picture. There were more, but they were communists, so I was forced to eat them. I think that these bunnies are much better than the Peeps Bunnies. Peeps just aren't that good. And don't you try to tell me different, because you know that I'm right. Why Peeps have so many fans is way beyond my comprehension.
Another Reese egg came around this year. I'm not sure what last year's Reese egg tasted like, but I'm pretty sure that this one was worse. It tastes pretty bad to tell the truth. Reese should stick to the tried-and-true cups and give up trying to break into the egg market. They're failing pretty bad there.
A box of Smarties. Gee, there are really interesting. The only thing I can say about 'em is that they're chocolate flavoured and Easter coloured. They're Smarties for God's sake. Shut up.
Aaaah, the Cadbury Creme Eggs. Possibly the greatest delicacy of the Easter time. And that's the saddest part. I just don't seem to like these guys as much as I used to. What's happening to me? Why do I not like junk foods that I once would kill for? Oh well, three Creme Eggs are better than one, so down the hatch they go. Hm. Word is an idiot. It keeps correcting "Creme" to "Crčme". Stupid computers. Wow I'm angry today. Why that is, I don't know, as nothing has happened to me lately to justify said anger. Oh well.
Mmmm Mini Eggs. Now these things I'll never not like. That candy coating... and the delicious chocolatey center... Oh wan I wish I could be eating them again right now. But again, there really isn't much I can say about these. Other than their deliciousness, they're pretty boring. Even the package is kinda lackluster.
Chocolate eggs. If you want me to say any more about 'em, fark you.
And this is the fantastic centerpiece of my chocolate empire. Or it was before it got eaten. You can't quite tell, but it's shaped vaguely like Homer. I was quite happy to receive a giant character chocolate, but then I realized why I hadn't gotten one for so many years; the chocolate is of rather low quality, regardless of what the packaging claims. So it was a bit of a disappointment, but it's a good box for putting stuff in. It's even got a cool viewing window.
In an odd, ironic twist, my parents gave me a toothbrush. It makes sense, what with all that chocolate is gonna kill my teeth. Anywho, it's one of those fancy-ass "spin brushes", and I have no friggin' idea how to use the thing. I can't help it, I was raised on the normal toothbrush. So I'm going to have to get used to this behemoth... or just take out the batteries.
Last time I checked, the holiday was Easter, not Christmas. I'm grateful and all, but I'm as surprised as you are that I got something so expensive for such a low-level holiday. I guess it kind of explains the smaller amount of candy though. In any case, it saves me $60, so I won't complain. I know you're all kinda spooked that I'd want a Pokémon game, but that would mean you don't know me too well. I like the Pokémon games. Or at least Blue anyway. This is the first Pokémon game I've been able to truly enjoy since the Yellow version came out.
And it's a lot different from other Pokémon games too. It's a lot more evil than all the other games, and that almost makes it okay for someone my age to be playing. I just look at this guy here. He is a total badass. Not only is he buffed up, but he's got a necklace of Poké Balls. I bet he stole 'em all, killed the creatures inside, ate them, and painted his face and dyed his hair with their blood. Nope, no characters in the other games would even think of pulling shit like that. Plus there are no random battles, so I love it. Random battles are the bane of my existence.
And that's that. It's over 1000 words, so it's long enough to qualify as a proper mini-review, so you can't complain about nuttin'. This Easter was kinda boring, and rather expensive, but it turned out pretty well. I played Pokémon Colosseum
for 5 hours straight yesterday. There really isn't any appropriate way to end this one. So I'll just end it here. Happy belated Easter, heathen bastards.
|The Good Stuff:
Tons of chocolate
I got a non-bargain bin console game? Holy shit!
Everyone loves Cadbury
|The Bad Stuff:
Chocolate gets annoying after you eat so much
Peeps bunnies are less fun to eat than the original Peeps
Am I rating a holiday? Materialism on a new level...
