Zephyr signatures I've used in the past
I actually didn't write this next one - just received it as net dreck,
and thought it was pretty cool.A description of the eighties from one who grew up
Totally random picture
I really liked ETs while at TEP. See, at the Children's Museum, there
is a recycling store, where they sell totally useless stuff for very
cheap. One of the things they sell is a whole 55-gallon drum worth of
little plastic ETs. What on earth would somebody want with ET's one
might ask (and in fact the clerks at the Recycle Store have
asked me several times)?! Well, it all goes back to an older time at TEP, when I believe, Quake and his
girlfriend went to the Children's Museum and bought approximately $10
worth of ETs (they're 5 cents each so this is an IMPRESSIVE amount).
Then they hid them EVERYWHERE at TEP. The first few days, people
thought it was cool/funny to find them everywhere. By the end of the
week, though, people were screaming psychotically, every time they found
one. I heard this story as a freshman at TEP and thought it was totally
hilarious. I tested it by buying a few ETs at the Children's Museum,
and tossing them to a couple of our older alums (Crusher and Leper to be exact). They both screamed and
dropped the ETs like they were on fire. This was considered good by me.
So I bought a dollars worth or so. And the next time I went to the
Museum, I bought another dollars worth. And another. And another.
Then I had fun lining them up in big rows on my computer, on my
bookshelves etc. Every now and then, one or two would disappear, and
show up mangled, or burnt by a stove's flame, or hanging in a noose from
my doorframe with its face burnt off (these all happened). But all in
all, my ETs made me happy, and made my brothers think I was weird.
Anyway, I was going to make an Easter ET hunt my senior year, but wimped
out, alas. So when U5, another of our alums, found this picture
distributed at his work, he forwarded it on to me of course.
