Clearly this is not a chair. But it felt as good as one after I stuffed myself at the Cheesecake Factory after a dinner celebration of Pops' birthday. He prides himself on the perspective of this picture so I figured I'd give him a shout out.
Now on to the chair. The chair you see here is orange, well cushioned, and generally finds itself sitting alone and unattended in the foyer of the women's bathroom at church. Miss Maldonado decided it should go on stage during Frequency tonight so that Kevin could speak sitting down. More of a chill family talk, right? So here's Zack, who practically begged me to put this picture up. Here you go.
Let me just tell you, this chair gets mad props just for being old-fashioned looking and cool. Grandma's don't really sit in that sort of chair, so I felt kinda like a Grandpa about to read a story or something when I sat in it. But due to the cushion on this thing and the incredibly cultured look it has, this chair gets a 4. The comfort isn't superb, but it's the vibe that counts. I almost feel like I should name it. Too sentimental? :)

I would have liked to dress up as him as a team mascot, but didn't have the time. Or energy. Or money. :) Still, he makes me laugh, especially his teeth.
Now I realize the great controversy between Del Taco and Taco Bell is still raging; however, I refuse to pick a side for good. Sometimes one sounds better than the other. Both are equally gross, I think, in a weird desirable way. Regardless of the quality of their food, I was focused on the chair. As I'm sure you've noticed, these chairs are not made for people to enjoy a luxurious meal. Literally this chair receives a 0.9. I cannot bear to give it a 1 simply because it really did suck. I constantly wanted to lean backwards in it just to create a distraction for my mind. Subconsciously I was hoping to focus more on balance rather be miserable sitting there on such an awful chair. Now that I think about it, maybe 0.9 is a little generous. But...it IS purple.... :)

In other news, last night David Karstens proved himself as a fire/grill master as you can see in this picture. I redact my former statements about his inability to do manly things in my blog about my flat tire which he may or may not have helped me with.
And furthermore, my mom planted sunflowers to grow in our backyard, one of which has decided to open up and it is absolutely breathtaking. Sunflowers are so amazing. I still am on a quest to find a field of them, by the way.

Though it's not mentioned in the video, the chair I was sitting in was one of those green, metal seats that are almost always outside your local strip mall. This chair is the ultimate prank, so it would seem. It's like if you got asked out on a date and said yes out of some sort of obligation and decided you wanted to sit outside. Did you really want to sit outside? No, you just said that so your dinner would be faster. These chairs are literally so uncomfortable after the first 30 seconds that you're constantly trying to sit in a different way just to last 30 more seconds in that seat. It's like a game. I rate it a 1. It still serves its purpose of providing seating, AND there are even "arm rests," if you can call them that. (Your arms do not feel rested, nor will they ever after using said "arm rests".) But there is no comfort. And yet I've sat there countless times. Must be the food that keeps bringing me back.

I purchased a Flip today, an UltraHD 2nd Gen. 120min. Flip. I'm not sure if this is better than the minoHD yet or not.
To piggyback off of my recorded assessment of the dollar theater chair, I must say that my estimated value of the chair has since been redacted. It is no longer a 3.8, but a 1. Through the endurance of our movie, I felt the constant necessity to move in order to quench the discomfort caused to my back due to the chair. Though I still believe the discomfort is justified by me only paying $2, I am displeased with the "upgraded" look at the dollar theater. The chairs may look cooler, but the older, sketchier cloth ones were more tolerable than the current faux leather ones.

Note, I recognize that this interrupts my chair blog series, but don't worry, I'll be back to chair blogging ASAP. After this.
Picture #1: "World of Color."
Description: I love the World of Color show at Disney's California Adventure. If you have not seen it yet in person, you must go. This is a little tease.
Picture #2: "Pump - N - Stretch."
Description: I snapped this at a gas station while filling up. Even though you're not supposed to use your phone while pumping gas, I took a risk. My first thought was that this is ridiculous. My second thought was that this is ridiculous.
Picture #16: "RUN!"
Description: Creepiest pot you've ever seen. You never know what you'll find at a thrift store.
