A-to-Z Challenge: G

The end of the first week of the Challenge approaches. Day 7 it is.

G is for Green Lantern.

Who needs will power when Hal Jordan has enough for everyone?

A quick pic since it's early, the kids are up, and I'm wicked tired.

I'm thinking I should change the background picture of my iPad each week, or every few days. Kind of running out of things to say about this pic.

Anywhoozle, I was at the store a few weeks ago and grabbed a Power-C VitaminWater. Upon opening it in the car, I was shocked because the flavor was not what I was expecting. Here's a little suggestion, Coca-Cola Company: Make the wrappers different colors.

They're too similar, and when you're rushing through the store with two kids in tow, you're not expecting there to be two flavors with nearly-identical packaging.

Just saying.

*License: I took all of these pictures.

I should take a picture of my iPad and show how I've nearly used up all 64 GB already. (Need to delete some movies.)
Excellent choice of shirt today!

DEZMOND said...

as you might expect me is loving the green on the shirt :)

Pickleope said...

And those Vitamin Waters can be dangerous. There are some flavors that are downright foul. While others are delicious. My favorite Green Lantern, the broccoli guy.

Libby said...

I have done the same thing with the Vitamin Waters. Sometimes it's a nice surprise, sometimes it's not.

Jamie Gibbs said...

If I wore that I'd be way too tempted to start muttering the "In blackest day" pledge to myself. It would get embarrassing.

Ick I can't drink that stuff, but RedBull is the foulest thing on the planet so...

Scope said...

Are you going to wear that shirt out doing yard work today?

You know, just be your average "Guy Gardner".

S. L. Hennessy said...

Awesome t-shirt, great superhero, semi-disappointing film.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

I KNEW you'd have a Green Lantern shirt!!! I knew it.

Lil Dreamer said...

To get raspberry-apple when you are expecting dragonfruit only breeds mistrust in the taste buds, not cool Coca-Cola!! Not cool.

Ishta Mercurio said...

Yay for the Green Lantern!

And I completely agree about the Vitamin Water.

Cassie Mae said...

AGH! Literally squealed when I saw this shirt. I've been wanting one 4eva! I've got a ring though. Okay, okay, it's a McDonald's toy, but still, it lights up which is pretty awesome.

The Golden Eagle said...

Cool shirt!

Yeah, you would think they'd make it more obvious those are two different drinks . . .

Joshua said...

I'm not ignoring you all today. The day just got away from me, and it's not over yet. I'll be responding to all of your comments as per usual...soon-ish. In the meantime, thanks for coming for a visit.

Kimberlee Turley said...

I've accidentally bought strawberry jam instead of raspberry. It bugs me since my husband will absolutely not eat the strawberry.

And Cambell cans... I tend to end up with a skewy one of those once in a while. They have a broccoli cheese and a broccoli soup that I seem to keep mixing up.

Leigh Covington said...

LOL. So true about changing up the packaging. I hate when things like that happen. Does nobody at the Coke Co. have children? They should understand!

And I still need to see Green Lantern. Pathetic, I know!

Also- thanks for you sweet comment on my Thursday post and also for your funny comment on FB. Totally made my day!

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

ipad background! i'm getting it now!
i was wondering what was in all those pics!
anyway, which flavor were you going for? i have some dragonfruit/ something or other tea that is super yummy!
i'm going to be forever disturbed by the green lantern symbol and equate it to ryan reynold's oh face from now on.
thanks a lot. :P

Annika said...

Green Lantern, haha. Always makes me think of The Big Bang Theory, they made some funny episodes with that one.

Anna Smith said...

ooh I wana tee like that, it's very pretty! I had to look closely at the pic to check they were diff flavours, that's weird :)

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Like the Green Lantern Tee. Very cool - and it looks very comfy.

And yeah, those drinks are very similar. I craved these when I was pregnant with my second, but didn't like the taste of either of these two. :shuders: I liked the apple-pear one. Yummy.

Hope Roberson said...

Sweet! I'd wear that one :)

Patty said...

Come on Coca-Cola! Wisen up! People don't want to be drinking all that Power-C when their body is craving Defense.
Geez Luise!

Rachel Morgan said...

That nearly-identical packaging is really confusing!

Joshua said...

Alex - All 64 already?! I have the 16 and it's nearly empty. Okay, more than half still free.

DEZ - I knew you would, DEZ.

Pickleope - I only like the Power-C flavor. Not so much on any of the others.

Libby - This time, it definitely was not.

Jamie - Would it be embarrassing? No. No it would not be.

Vodka - You know I love Red Bull, but I haven't had any in over 3 weeks. Just waiting for my 30 day chip.

Scope - I ripped a hole in the front, so it might be relegated to working in the yard status. Or sleeping. Also, Guy Gardner...I never liked his weird coat look. The sleeveless collared coat...ugh.

S.L. - Psst...I still haven't seen the film, and I kind of don't want to...

Lass - I can't put anything past you.

Lil - The kiddos liked it, so there's that.

Ishta - I wish I had Hal Jordan's willpower.

Cassie - You can still find it at some Targets.

Golden Eagle - Raspberry apple are two flavors that should not go together. Raspberry is for tea and jam and fruit snacks.

Kimberlee - I've done that before with the Campbell's cans. I get annoyed, but then I remember that they look the same and I give the store a break. I mean, if I can't tell the difference, I can't imagine the person stocking the shelves and how crazy they must be seeing those same labels over and over and over, and how hard that must be.

Leigh - To quote the 80's: You got it, dude.

vic - The dragonfruit one is my favorite.

Annika - I've still not seen that show. I keep missing it when they start from the beginning, and it's not on Netflix yet (I don't think).

Anna - Ultra weird.

Jaycee - It is very comfy. Unfortunately, it has a hole in the front now, and it shrank. Fail.

Raine said...

I hate when the shampoo and conditioner look alike. Especially when I dont have my glasses on.

Joshua said...

Raine - That's why I go for Pert Plus. No worries about mixing up bottles.
