We interrupt your regularly scheduled barrage of orangutan photos to bring you some photos that have collected on my phone... funny/quirky/bizarre things from around town:
First... Asian Food Channel. I appreciate that there doesn't seem to be a Rachael Ray or Sandra Lee equivalent on this channel, but there are some weird shows, man. This one, "Excellent Chef Series- Da Bing," which I believe is Taiwanese, is particularly weird. The female hostess is dressed as below, in a maid's outfit with weird Pippi Longstocking-esque pigtails. Her male counterpart is dressed like a butler with an exaggerated, painted on, curly, thin mustache (see here). I do not understand. Why?
This is Tim in the "Velvet Class" movie theater near our house. Yes, it's a bed. And, yes, they will bring you beer during the movie. No, I don't know if Tim is wearing pants under there.
We actually prefer the "Premiere" theater to the "Velvet Class." Premiere has La-z-boys, which are far more comfortable than the beds, which you tend to slide down... life is tough:
This is the creepy hallway at the location of my new favorite weekend activity: karaoke. Only in the individual/private rooms, though. Our friends Rob and Brooke introduced us this past weekend and I think I might be in love with karaoke. I do think they need to work on the atmosphere in the hallways at the place we went, though, as it made it feel a bit like a bordello. Maybe it was.
I like this guy I passed on my way back from the hardware store. If you want birds, he's got 'em:
And finally, a Christmas treat for you... this festive teddy bear who doesn't seem to understand that Rudolph had a red, shiny nose, not a red, shiny ball gag:
