09:41 am - Monkey on the Move

Okay, ordinarily, I am against video on my blog. However, in this case, I must point out that my brother bought me the Monkey head you see in this video.

Now.

I need only a Roomba.

There's a SmartFilter here at Compass that wasn't allowing me to see it. LOL!

Not even if I put makeup on the ape head like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?

Am I the only one that thinks those things are creepy? It looks like a decapitated zombie monkey head.

I'm sure its meant to be whimsical and fun.

It wasn't exactly what I was expecting on Christmas morning, I'll tell you that. It is pretty cool, it's just ... odd.

NO idea what to do with it now, though.

Okayyyy... now would be a good time to back away slowly and then run like hell!

Especially if you're of a feline nature!

Can you imagine a Roomba with an animatronic hooting chimp head in a room full of cats?

Oh my God.

Tell me that's not pure comedy GOLD!

Actually, my boyfriend and I were talking about the sly creepiness of roombas just last night.

They're the precursor to the house robot... and I know we've all seen at least Tales From the Darkside about a house robot that turns around and slaughters the whole family.

Of course, I find the idea of nanobots extremely creepy, too, so maybe I have some sort of robot phobia here that might make me a poor judge of roomba creepiness.

Monkey + roomba = magic!

I love my house robots, though I don't think I would put a monkey on them because monkeys are creepy. Maybe if I could train trixie to ride them around, sort of like an intra-house ferry system.

If it wouldn't give poor Max a total heart attack, I would totally want that...Buddah would chase it, Max would just plop over dead.

Your dad is awesome!

You so *need* a decapitated ape vacuum!

Where did your brother find you the monkey head?

Honestly, I have NO idea, but it's a "Sharper Image" thing so I imagine you can find it various places. It's also really expensive for my brother. Everywhere I see it online it's over 100 bucks. He had been asking me what I wanted for Xmas that didn't cost too much, and I was saying things like bubble-bath (everything is "body wash" now it seems like and not actual "bubble-bath"), or sparkly cheap jewelry from like the three-dollar bin at Wal-Mart, or warm socks. Then he asked me if I'd like perfume that he and his guy friends really liked on girls (for Charlie's benefit). He put it something like, "You know, the kind of perfume that when guys smell it they just want to ask that girl out no matter what she looks like or how old she is." I said, "Sure." I mean, hey, why not, right?

So, all things considered, I was a bit surprised when I opened the package. I said, "Well. That was a very bold move completely ignoring everything I told you, but very interestingly done."

At the time, I didn't realize how freaking cool it really was. Yesterday was the kicker when the ape participated in my nephew's gift unwrapping. It was bizarre. Every time someone would say something that would make everyone laugh, the chimp started laugh-hooting. It was all looking around and watching Taylor. Tooooooo funny.

This all may become part of one of my marathon blog entries.


Btw, don't be surprised if sushirob steals your icon. :-)

sushirob needs to check this place out. I mean SERIOUSLY. It's cartoon Cthulhu heaven!!

Everyone is absolutely welcome to take the icon but should give credit in icon keywords/descriptions to wiredwizard (who animated the pix) and of course goomi (where the pix came from).

As for the monkeyhead ... your brother rocks. That's just hilarious. You will have so much fun with this head. Even more if you actually do get a Roomba.

I am becoming obsessed with the monkey-on-a-roomba idea. It would make having a roomba worth it (seriously, without the monkey head, who cares about robot vacuums?!)

I think he already knows about that -- I'm pretty sure I've seen him use one of those icons before. I'll point him this way just to make sure, though.

And yeah -- having your house automatically vacuumed by a shrieking, hooting, decapitated monkey is just ... well, I have no words, actually.
