RANTWiiCK, or CustoMiization


About a week ago I got home after work and a tiring but fun bike commute. I plopped down on the couch for a second while still in my cycling gear. For some reason I had stretched my legs out straight and was waving them around; I think I may have been imitating a crying baby while talking to the kids about something. Anyway, as I did that I noticed my too-round belly and black stretchy pants and said, "holy cow, I look like a Mii"! My kids agreed.

I had Mrs. Rantwick take a picture of me immediately of course, because documenting such important discoveries is just the right thing to do.

As you can see, I wasn't entirely crazy. Here is that photo compared to the Mii I use at home:



I kept this photo fairly small, because I really don't like how I look in it. Man, I have got some weight to lose. I'm working on it. You know what would totally suck about being a Mii? Sphere hands. I mean, I don't mind having a spherical head, but sphere hands would be terribly frustrating:



I don't mind using a bigger picture now that I'm wearing my more handsome face. Maybe I should post unflattering pictures of myself more often... I'm finding looking at the gut in that picture very motivating... but I wouldn't do that to you. I'll just refer back to these when I need a little push.

You know, once you have carefully cut out a photo of yourself, pasted on your blogging alter-ego head and given yourself pink sphere hands, it is hard to just walk away without using that image a little more, don't you find? I sure do. So here, I did this just for you!





Aren't you glad I'm back?
Yer Pal,

Rantwick's changing his name to Waldo?

I can see it now: Waldowick.com

(Word associations are so much fun!)

Thanks for my laugh of the day RANTWICK.

I wonder what the Mii you use away from home looks like.

I am betting our very own Rantwick would put Waldo's dick in the dirt on two wheels...even with Waldo's cycling physique look.

Thanks all! JRA, you are a smartass. RL, I had to look up "dick in the dirt" on urban dictionary. I'm not entirely sure Waldo has one anyway. Thanks for saying I could at least beat that geek.

And for those who actually looked for all 10, an answer key!

I see the name suggestion from Steve.
You don't by chance own an Emerson appliance, do ya? :)

Peace :)
