Classic kerplunkGrowing up we did not have the game Kerplunk. Our cousin, Carla, did. So it was a fun thing we got to play whenever we went over to our Aunt’s house as kids.

I remember going up to her room and pulling out the game, putting it together and playing it (and probably losing  — I always lost no matter what games we played growing up).

Kerplunk has a very distinct sound when those marbles come crashing out. (And they never remained contained in that little tray at the bottom, so some of the fun was tracking down all marbles after they came crashing down. Kerplunk!)

A little while back I spotted a Toy Story version of the game at Target and thought I’d be back to get it. Well when I went back I could not find it any longer.

Aliens Ker PlunkThen I found it at Toys R Us, but who to play this “kids” game with?

A bunch of adults that’s who!

And you want to know something? I am pretty sure we all had a bit of fun playing it too!

Order Disney Pixar Toy Story Ker Plunk! Game from Entertainment Earth!

So I guess it is true that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, sort of. Last Fall the Star Trek Experience, which I NEVER got to go to, closed its doors. Bummer not only for me but tons of Trekkies every where.

Well good news all you geeks out there Star Trek The Experience is coming back to Los Vegas (or maybe it never left). So now I can finally get my sorry butt out to the desert and head to this Trek mecca (before it disappears again).

Guess while I am out there I should head off to Roswell too. As these are both on my big TO DO LIST I keep talking about.

TelescopeI have always loved looking up at the night sky. Funny thing is I have never anything better than binoculars to view the heavenly bodies with. The night sky is one of the things I miss most since I have moved out of the country and into the city. Now I barely get to see a single star let alone a sky full. There is just too much light pollution here.

I would love a really good telescope. This one has an onboard computer to show you where the stars are and it will even hook up to a PC so you can create your own sky tour. Heck this thing could even teach a slacker like me astronomy. And boy could I spot the UFOs with this!

It is the 50th anniversary of the film THE BLOB. Filmed in Chester County way back in 1958 and starring Steve McQueen. Each year the Colonial Theater (this would be the theater in the famous scene where everyone is running out escaping the BLOB) has a BLOBfest to celebrate their fifteen minutes of fame and this year is no exception (how could it be with it being the 50th anniversary and all).

 Stop by tonight and watch the reinactment of the running of the Blob. Other activities include costume contests, a parade, a street fair, meet the REAL Blob and Tom Savini or just come to see the film on the big screen.

It is summertime, well not officially yet. That means it is time to get away from the TV, computer, xbox or wii and get out into the great outdoors and enjoy yourself. You don’t have to do anything too strenuous. There is plenty to do without breaking the bank you’re a sweat. You could go bird watching. All you need is a book, a pair of binoculars, good walking shoes and some time.

 On the warm evenings you could check out the night sky with those very same binoculars or step it up a notch with a telescope and see that UFO zooming by. (For the techno-geek that has to have his PC along you can still bring it and use the night sky software or bird guide of your choice on your computer or PDA.) If your out at night you might want to pick up a night vision scope to see what is out in the woods with you. Any good bigfoot hunter worth his weight would not be caught without one.
