And, as if they were watching in admiration, ThinkGeek have just launched this licensed World of Warcraft Level Up Button:

A Pac-Man Diet? This Week It’s Really Silly :)

A Pac-Man Diet: Ready?

This week’s diet is for all us snackers, and it’s in honour of the 35th anniversary of Pac-Man, that greatest constant snacker of all.

Who can believe that Pac-Man is 35 years old today?

That must be how Pac-Man and I were exactly the right age for each other when it launched ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember playing Pac-Man in arcades as a kid, then Miss Pac-Man on dates, and lots of other versions, like Gulpman on the ZX Spectrum, and my favourite cutesy variation, Pac-Land.

 

A Pac-Man Diet: Does anyone else sometimes wish a fairy would fly in with a sign that says 'Break Time'?

See Pac-land Classic Arcade by Arcade Madman on YouTube for a play-through

So, Pac-Man, what’s your diet?

(wakka wakka)

Pick any sensible diet that allows fruit, say a low fat diet or high fibre diet for example.

Make dinners you can squeeze some lemon on, like fish and vegetables, or chicken and salad.

See? Looks just like a Pac-Man ๐Ÿ™‚

Then each day, the only snacks we’re allowed are the (Miss) Pac-Man fruits, in order.

And all through the week we get points.

Because… points!

Can You Take A Baby to Comic Con?

Can you take a Baby to Comic Con? This Baby Starfleet Captain says Yes!

Can you take a Baby to Comic Con? This Baby Starfleet Captain says Yes!

 

So, can you take a baby to Comic Con?

We tried it a couple of years ago, and we weren’t the only ones. The short answer is: it depends on the venue, but almost certainly yes you can.

The longer answer is: be prepared to have a different Comic Con than most people!

Some may be wondering, “Why would you take a baby to Comic Con anyway?”

Well, why not?

We like it there, our older kids love it, and we’re not inconsiderate to those around us. And for a baby, Comic Con isn’t that different from a day out anywhere else with a lot of people around. Plus there are great photo ops ๐Ÿ™‚

All in all, it makes for a great family outing.

Taking a Baby to Comic Con: Older Kids love this stuff. Babies don't even know it's scary.

See? Comic Con is a great family outing! (Older Kids love this stuff. Babies don’t know it’s scary yet!)

Why I don’t drink ‘Lemon Water’ in the Mornings

I’ve seen a lot of posts on Facebook lately about how we should all be drinking Lemon Water in the mornings.

That is, instead of a cup of tea, then another cup of tea, then a cup of coffee, and then maybe another cup of coffee, we should pour hot water on a slice of lemon and drink that.

No.

And here’s why not:
