We Haz MORE Technobabble!: Psychotronic Nanotech Disintegrator
You say your nanotechnology has gotten loose and is threatening to turn the planet into gray goo? Well, my friend, you need this handy dandy disintegrator unit to clean up that problem! Just put on the helmet, grab the gun and start wiping out those rogue nanites with the POWER OF YOUR MIND! After that, maybe you can rejigger the device so that you can disintegrate other stuff.
DogCon 5, Trip Day 10
Oy, has it ever been a busy day! Here are the highlights, Gentle Readers.
Breakfast: We ate at a busy little place called the Lakeside Diner. Great food and plenty of it. The Sausage & Egg Platter has 4 kinds of sausages on it. Yum!
Flash: Still being on Double Secret Mom Parole, we sweet and innocent pets stayed on the bus, double locked into the Meadow Room.
The World Famous Eastern Oregon Giant Jesus: Yet another giant Jesus can be crossed off of our list. This one is 90 feet tall and carved from a single humongous Ponderosa pine. He looks a bit skinny for his height, but the carving is superb. We all bought t-shirts. By the way, as far as we can determine, there is no Western Oregon Giant Jesus.
The World’s Largest Potato: Oregon and Idaho both grow a shitload of spuds, as does Washington. This watermelon sized Russet is in Oregon, about 15 miles from the Idaho border. Just reading how they managed to preserve the damned thing was worth the $2.00 each we paid to see it.
Potato World: This place is a whole lot like Onion World, because it was built and is operated by the same company. The main difference is that they serve potatoes about ten times more ways than the other place serves onions and you get the message that potatoes from Oregon and Washington are pretty damned questionable and potatoes from Maine are just plain old Communism.
We ate lunch at Potato World, thereby fulfilling our potato needs for about a month.
Lucy: Who knew that a Potato Burger could taste so good?
The Haunted House: This place might have been really scary when they opened it up back in 1953, but now it’s mostly interesting as a sort of roadside attraction time capsule.
We rolled into Wyoming about 6:00 this evening and while everybody else fixed dinner, I let Miranda, who has her learners permit, drive the bus.
Now, the cool thing about the Chameleon Circuit is that when the bus changes shape, so does the driver area and the handling of the whole rig. Thus, the young Miss Jones got to drive a school bus, a Toyota Corolla, a ’65 Chevy Impala, a 1999 White Freightliner big rig, an Aston Martin DB5, a 1961VW Beetle, a ’53 Ford pickup and a 1970 Corvette Stingray. She did very well with all of them
We stopped at about 7:30 in a KOA. Dinner was delicious and then we played boardgames. Now, it is bedtime. More blogstuff tomorrow.
Radio Station: “Reggae Opera Channel” which is as strange as it sounds.
Destination Sign: Red House
