Zippo Tricks April 25, 2009

Posted by Michael in News.

Yesterday I received a really sweet gift from Lipstick — a Zippo gift box complete with Black Ice lighter, genuine Zippo fluid, and spare flints.

This was the result of Lipstick observing me admiring Dave’s custom branded Fender Zippo at the IBMMP.  Lately, I’ve been getting annoyed with disposable lighters that don’t work on a windy day.

So, now I need to learn how to use it, especially how to look cool while lighting it.  Naturally, I turned to the intertubes for instruction, and found some interesting techniques.

Stick with this until 1:24.

A somewhat more successful presentation is below the break.

I just killed a possum 😦 I was coming around a dark corner, and by the time my lights hit it, I couldn’t stop, and there was a big ol’ truck next to me with a loooooong trailer, like 3 or 4 carlengths, so I couldn’t swerve. All I could do was scream. *ka-THUNK*

It was a big one, too. Must have been a good 20 or 30 pounds. I hope it died instantly.

Of course, possums are disgusting vermin. But still.

Also OT, I went to my neighbor’s crawfish boil today. He’s a police officer, as were several of the attendees. Interestingly, nearly every police officer I spoke to advised me to carry on campus even in violation of the law, due to how dangerous it is over there.

^True dat. Take your chances with the legal system.

Was this your party?

17. Tushar - April 26, 2009

I suppose this wasn’t the party Mrs Peel attended.

Re: #5:

OK, Tushar, I love you.

Hopefully nobody will notice this on a dead thread.

Now, would you please ring up my pack of cigarettes and Slurpee?

19. Lipstick - April 30, 2009

Michael loves Tushar
Michael loves Tushar
