July 11 Means FREE Slurpees!

Do you love Slurpees? How about a free one?

Well, 7-Eleven's participating stores are offering customers a free Slurpee to celebrate their 81st birthday on – when else? – July 11, 7/11/08, also known as 7-Eleven® Day!

As has been the tradition for many years, the company will celebrate July 11 with free 7.11-ounce Slurpee® drinks for customers visiting its U.S. stores. Special birthday cups will be available while supplies last.

Dave (EVAD) and I (mud) Battle in DDR!

One of my favorite pastimes has been to go to the mall and play Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) with the local kids. Mind you, I'm at least 10 years older than the oldest kid there. That said, watch as I put my foot down and show the young ones how it's done.

I'm standing on the left, complaining about how the two of us forgot to go to the options screen and my good buddy Dave is on the right. Chris is filming us playing which giving some commentary.

Robert Opie Kit Kat Fridge Magnet

I picked this up from eBay a month ago from a seller in England. It's a Robert Opie collection Tin Plate Kit Kat Fridge Magnet. I have no idea who Robert Opie is. So, let me write you what it says on the back of the packaging.

The Robert Opie Collection
The world's largest collection of British advertising images, started by Robert Opie in 1963, provides a fascinating insight into the British way of life over the last 130 years. Featured many times in the media, The Collection now numbers over half a million items, and is continually expanding. A part of The Collection is open for public viewing in Notting Hill, London.

It'll be another neat addition to my collection. Cool, huh?

New Kit Kat Branded Products from Japan...

Here's the lovely Valerie modeling two new products that Jason sent me from Japan. On the left is a Kit Kat Stationery Pack, which includes a regular kitter, a Kit Kat shaped eraser as well as a Kit Kat pencil adorned with the slogan and various flowers. To the right of the Shawn (the sheep) is a Kit Kat Mug. There's nothing really special about the mug except that it's pentagonal and it's from Japan. These two pieces will be great additions to my collection.

On another note, we saw the movie "The Happening". Both of us believed that the movie was miscast, but we were quite excited to see the trailer for the new X-Files movie. Can't wait!
