Nobody Asked Me - Sunday (1)

So I have been kicking around a few ideas lately of things I could do for the blog.  Review more?  Interview more?  More memes?  I don't know the answer.  So in the meantime I am bringing back Nobody Asked Me as a sort of Sunday post.  I'm not going to link to all my reviews and purchases.  Heck, I one click so many times, I would never want to keep track.  As for my posts, there's a archive list right over there >>>>
So I thought I'd have some fun!  Some weeks maybe I'll just post a picture.  Maybe an editorial.  Maybe some YouTube videos.  Who knows!!  I don't have a topic of anything to talk about this weekend, so I will leave you with a hot pic, and something I do want to include:  Apocalypse Item Of The Week. 
First, I have no idea who this guy is.  But I kind of heart him.  If he had some tattoos, I'd be all over that.  What do you think, is he your type?


And my other thing, Apocalypse Item Of The Week.  I've been reading a lot of post apocalyptic books lately, and it's got me to thinking.... what do I need?  I've got a huge list!!  Some are realistic, some are just fantasy.  Some are funny.  Today it's fashionable! 

Apocalypse Item Of The Week!

It's a Paracord Bracelet!  Now, these little babies are only usable once, they say.  Cause who can rebraid that shit?   Ha!  Not me!  But anyway - there are so many things you need a rope for... tying someone up (or down!)  Climbing, of course.  Heck, 
even using it to tie your food up in a tree to keep it away from bears!  Anyways, I love these bracelets.  I think they are so cute. They look like not much, but then BAM!!! Big ol' rope!

These ones are all from Survival Straps - and I have no affiliation there, but hey, I may as well give them a shout out cause they carry cool stuff! Plus if you use your cord to get out of a jam, they will send you a new one for free! That's pretty darn cool!

So that's it for this Sunday.  Mainly cause it's like 1am and I'm tired.  But I have a big list of things to talk about and post in the upcoming weeks, so I hope to see you back!

  1. I've made bracelets that look like these in summer camp- the braiding isn't as hard as it looks! On the other hand, I wasn't using full length rope... really cool feature:-)

  2. Damn, wait, I could unravel that and use it to tie shit to a tree? That's awesome! :) And Hottie is rockin' those ear guages and the stubble. And the piercing. ;)

  3. The bracelets are cool. The guy's bod? Hot...but I'm not so into his earrings. I don't know why, but I've always found it unappealing if I can see through a body part thanks to a piercing. (Yet I have no issue with piercings in interesting places...Odd, I know.)

  4. That is a weird issue. I like piercings but not the super huge ones. Like all stretched out. I just think "what if that gets caught on something and rips? " you'd be screwed.

  5. Lol I don't know if you are making fun of me or if you like the bracelets. But either way they I still love them. And I like the guy. He looks dark. Like he knows some bad stuff and he is gonna tell me.

  6. I've seen some of them with huge ropes, like 20 foot long. I'd probably cry when I had to unravel that lol. But that's very cool that you know some of that braiding! It's a very good skill to have, seriously!

  7. Truly. I knew someone who used to have aught gage holes. It made me cringe. Especially when I heard that the skin on the inside of that hole died. Can you imagine the smell when they take the piercings out if it's true? *shudders*

    ReplyDelete
  8. Omg. I never even considered there would be a smell. If you make me switch to guys with no tats and piercings cause all I can think of is " do his gauges smell?" I will find a way to get revenge lol

  9. Meh, that guy doesn't do it for me. Those bracelets are pretty cool though, especially to wear while hiking or camping. Or a kinky night.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yep. Is it wrong that I've been fantasizing about having a collection of Paracord bracelets?

  11. Not making fun of you at all. I think those are awesome and since i'm all about camping and exploring and falling down in the mud, I would totally make those and wear them and feel like I could survive the apoc better. :)

  12. We live close enough, we should have a camping trip and test out apocalypse stuff... but with cocktails and lots of friends :-) a nerdy retreat :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. YES! We love camping. But everyone who comes with us complains about dirt, bugs, animals, camp showers, actual movement...... I'd love to camp with someone who actually enjoys camping. :D That would be such a huge treat.

  14. I come from a long line of campers. It's the best vacation :-) last November I went camping in 34 degree weather lol - in a summer tent and sleeping bag! Let's just say there was a lot of alcohol involved.

  15. *GIANT SMILE* We talked about getting in another trip this year in the fall, but I don't know that it'll happen now. But we love to camp. Love it. The girls think it's the greatest, and it's wonderful for them to be able to ride their bikes and stuff and we don't have to be hovering over them like we do at home.


    Alcohol around the campfire is always the best remedy. This could be a new kind of convention. The Author/Reader Camping event. LOL

  16. Damn you should do that!!! That's an awesome idea. I would so go to that. Definitely a lot easier than trying to buy fancy clothes for balls and dress up parties. Let's just all sit around and have smores, hot dogs, and drinks! And even kid friendly, there would be a bigger attendance

    ReplyDelete
  17. I dunno that anyone would show up to see me. LOL Maybe if there's other authors out there that camp.... most of the chickies I know are very into their manicures and heels and stuff. I don't know any other people than you that like to camp. (Mostly I hear "but it's dirty.... I don't like camp showers....are there bugs?..... OMG I can't sleep because of the animals making noise.... Hot dogs for breakfast?!...... EWWW *shrieks* there's a slug!!.....") :) But I love camping, and I'd love to have friends to go with who actually enjoyed it too. It'd be fun to reserve a whole block of sites and take over a whole section of the campground. Maybe if there was interest we could go somewhere that has rustic cabins to rent. I'd still be in my tent though, sleeping in a hoodie next to the fire with a beer in one hand and a burned sausage in the other, yelling at raccoons cause they're sneaky bastards who steal your bread.

  18. We need to make a plan and do it. Screw the rest of them :-) I'd love to, and my kid has been asking me to camp and I haven't taken her yet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And I LOVE dirt :) Bugs aren't great, but it's well documented that they don't bother you when you are camping. Raccoons, however, can be a nuisance :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well alrighty then. LOL. :) We shall do this camping thing. And it will be glorious and full of dirt and no bugs. You've got my number, call me and we will figure it out and then we can post about how awesome it was. (Guess what I'm plotting? A zombie story for Halloween complete with a warrior woman and a nerdy scientist type. Because my stories aren't complete without a nerd.)

  21. If his nipples are pierced, it kind of gets you thinking as to what else is pierced, huh?
    Love the bracelets too!
