Ok, so these are inflatable but think how could they could look in CGI!
Anyway, I digress. "Oh, go on then, if I must," I think was my answer ;o). So, today it arrived! And she'd done such a fantastic job of wrapping it that it took me a good 20 minutes to get into the bloody thing. Then I had to wrestle it off Harry who was convinced that it was "MINE!".
I finally got it to myself in the kitchen and took it off it's cardboard and at that moment I reverted to being about 10 years old. What did I do first? Yep, I wobbled it like a wobbleboard. Not familiar with the wobbleboard? Well then, you need a lesson on Rolf.
Now, Rolf Harris is a bit of a legend over here. He's also been known to bear more than a passing resemblance to someone we might recognise:
Now, Rolf is a lovely chap, and I happen to know this because...
Aah, yes, that's me in the flowery dress next to Rolf back in 1996. That was my lucky dress for a while ;o). Good times!
So, that's Rolf. Now, Rolf is renowned for playing the 'Wobble Board', so here he is. Feel free to picture me in my kitchen wobbling 3D Edward, Bella & Jake (or Bob, Mummy & Jake, as Harry calls them).
Eventually, having got over the novelty of that I managed to find a space for it on my kitchen door. I then spent a good couple of minutes looking at it from different angles to try and get the full effect. Crouching, I may have stood on a chair, just general swaying side to side as the image changed. Just had to have another go now from my chair, honestly, there's hours of fun to be had.
In the end the glare from the window meant you just didn;t get the full effect, so I've put it on the side of the fridge, which suits me because I can see it from here and also put the poster back that I took off the door to make space!
And just because I don't want to leave you scarred by Rolf (he does take a little getting used to), here's something else to scar you instead!
Oh, go on then, for suffering through today's post you can have this:
Now don't say I never give you anything! Tune in tomorrow for 'Things that begin with 'th' Thursday'!
