Como Zoo has a pretty nice amusement park called Como Town which offers some fun thrills at a cheap price. One of the "rides" you can participate in is called "Water Wars" where two people launch water balloons at each other. The two participants are put in a water balloon launching mechanisms which face each other and make it fun and easy to soak your opponent.
Water Wars also has some rules. I like rule #2:
That's it. Simple pleasures my friends. Simple pleasures.

Movies I have to stop and watch
These are the movies that when I see them on TV I have to stop and watch. I'm sure you know what I am talking about.
- Mr. and Mrs. Smith
- Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
- A Christmas Story
- Back to the Future
- The Shawshank Redemption
- The Matrix
- The Princess Bride
- Fight Club
- Napoleon Dynamite
And when Hot Fuzz finally gets shown on TV, that will probably jump to the top of the list!
I have spoken.

For future reference ...
So, I went to the Twins game on Saturday night. This means that combined with the Brewers game I saw on June 28, not only have I seen two losses, but I have also seen two of the most boring Twins games in their storied history. Man, it was brutal.
I had pretty good seats too. Up a ways in section 228 so my son and I had a nice bird's eye view of everything. We got the tickets as walk-up customers, but I first tried to call 1-800-33-TWINS to procure our seats.
Have you ever called this number but messed up the numbers ever so slightly? Like maybe called 1-800-337 ... instead of 1-800-338 ...? Well, I did, and I got quite a shocking surprise.
For those of you that care, here is an important breakdown of the difference between the two numbers:
1-800-337-9467 = The best and hottest XXX phone sex action
1-800-338-9467 = Purchase tickets for Twins baseball
Got it? Good. I'd be surprised if I was the first to make this mistake, and I'm sure I won't be the last.
Have a great Monday everyone!
