Sometimes the people walk, sometimes the people talk.
Sometimes the people walk so much they walk around the clock.

Moving night and day, never standing still.
Lucky for the people they're not walking on a hill.

These people never sleep, they got 'restless leg syndrome.'
If it was up to me I'd yell "It's time you must go home!"

"Get on out'ta here, and take your flowers too!
Go on home and get some rest 'cause sleep empowers you."

Silly walking people, walking all the time...
They'll walk away their lives but I'll not walk away all mine.

Heinous Stinkbots are coming to eat the baby Quaggles! Swordmaster Mylo wants to fight, but a Gallant Goodbot has offered the family safe passage to a better land where Happy Propellerbots watch over the flock and strange bunnies rain down from the sky to deliver purple flowers.

With construction work to do
(And so much to be done)
Sometimes a road crew does strange things
To make the day more fun

And I am here today, to tell you 'bout these creeps
Who took these mens' toupees and buried them deep in the street
Right up to their necks, "With no sunblock!" they said
Sitting in the road all day their heads were turning red

And traffic would not stop!
Instead they scoffed and sped around
Exhaust was bad, the sad heads coughed
So soft you barely heard a sound

Thank God for the police, who came to the rescue
Here to keep the peace arrived the heroes dressed in blue.
But they didn't come to save the heads (that's too much work, you see)
These cops showed up to laugh and feed them donuts and coffee!

A man named Dan was a running man with a plan
Who ran by a tan cop standing by in the sand
With a donut in his hand and mouth filled with sharp teeth
Deeply focused on the pastry he was trying to eat...

While the hipster in a sleek suit chin-checked a bird
Who demanded respect, "Call me 'sir' or get pecked!"
"Well that's absurd," reflected the nerd (who grew up to be fat)
With that sleep walking man who looked oddly like his dad.

But Santa has a box for the feather-necked Pherg,
Who was disturbed by that shlock who tried to beat that sweet bird
If you're perturbed by this heap of wack peeps on the street
Just take a seat and sit back - you're in for a treat!

This is Paulo the Spider Rider and the Rock Steady Blockheads, a ragtag group of storytellers and herbologists from the deep south. There are times in life when one realizes mankind needs more carnivorous plants. Paulo figured this out long ago and is doing something about it. Be sure to attend his tales when he passes through your town, but listen to what the blockhead said: "Steer clear of the biennials, and don't pet the plants."

This is a classic old fashioned diner - but in a GOOD way. The service is always friendly and the food is always good. The breakfasts are just good, basic breakfasts. Nothing fancy, but again - in a good way. Chace's Pancake Corral is leaps & bounds better than IHOP or Denny's. There's usually a wait on the weekends, so get there early. Also, the tables are a little close together because it's a small space but the overall vibe is homey, friendly, and sort of reminds me of an America that probably only existed in shows like Leave It To Beaver. I love this place.

Chuck E. Cheese doesn't have real "arcade" games. The "games" they have are really bad machines that pretty much just eat kids tokens as fast as they can put them in. Often they don't even work, and when your tokens get eaten -- good luck getting a refund. You tell an employee who has to escalate it to the manager who is never to be found - and then they really don't want to give you the refund (of a 25 cent token.) So they go to the machine and you have to prove it doesn't work. Then they reluctantly give you a refund of a single token after 15 minutes of waiting. Unbelievable. The employees are generally unhelpful and don't seem to want to be there. In spite of all of this, it's usually incredibly crowded. I don't recommend it at all.

The company I work for sent us as a team building thing and it was great! The Battlepods are a bit dated, but it doesn't matter - as long as you have a group to play with it's super fun. There's probably 35(?) or so arcade machines around to play, too, and the guys that run it are pretty chilled out & helpful. Thumbs up, had a good time.
