Getting Ready to Watch E.T.

When I watch a movie, I like to accessorize properly. People who like to put their “collector” glasses on a shelf for display should look away now. All of my glasses are in daily rotation and they all go through the dishwasher. Unlike your dusty pristine glasses, mine are alive!!


Damn you Mario! I’ll play with you later!


Now on with the show…

  1. Holy CRAP! I thought I was the only one with a vintage glass collection. Sadly, I DO have several shelves with dusty Goonies, batman, and mcdonaldland glasses among others. You rock for posting this. Often I get persecuted for having a vintage promo glass collection lol. I’m afraid to run them to the diswasher. Are you telling me it’s ok? haha

  2. Awesome man! Reminds me of when I went to a late showing of Goonies a few years ago at college and I brought a Baby Ruth with me and opened it when Chunk did on screen. It seemed I was the only on in the packed theatre that did that and I felt completely stupid but it was worth it and I smiled as I ate my candy bar.
