Evict Lyme – Evyl Robot Edition

Evyl Robot here, hijacking Jennifer’s Head. Look here b*****s, Bonnie hasn’t received nearly enough money for her FUNdraiser so far, and we are looking at a little over 25 hours until it closes. This. Is. Not. Acceptable. My esteemed associate, Dennis, has put up a very nice holster as a prize in this deal, and I happen to have caught up on a bunch of my own holster work. Since we don’t have enough donations, and I have a little more free time, I’m going to put in another custom holster. Feast your hungry little eyes on this:

That’s a black leather 1911 Hidden Stitch Pancake with a red ostrich embossed inlay with an Evyl Robot logo underlay and red stitching.

Feast your eyes I say!

But you can’t have that one. Hahahahahhaa! That one is the one my brother has been wearing for over a year now. I will make a new holster like that one if, and only if the donations turn out significantly higher than at current. As in, three or four times what they currently are. Otherwise, I’m throwing in a plain black Hidden Stitch Pancake holster that fits a five-inch 1911. It’s still a sweet holster, but you don’t get the detail work in that case.

You see as things stand now, I look at the prize packages stacked in my living room, and I look at the funds raised, and I’m disappointed. This isn’t a contest. People are getting a bargain on this loot! It’s time to step up the game. These people and companies have donated some really nice stuff and the entries have not even paid for it yet! They’d be better off if they simply donated the value of their work to Bonnie’s fund. But, it’s not over yet. Please, make this thing worth it. Help out Bonnie and win cool stuff. How can you go wrong?

Giving Back

Impossible!  But the media says we’re all just bitter clingers that don’t care about anything other than our guns!

Linoge is raising money for Honored American Veterans Afield

Go and give money. This will give you warm fuzzy feelings and provide real help to those that need it. They’ve already given for you. So you are already a winner even if you stop there.

But wait! There’s more.

If you tell Linoge about it, he’ll send you tickets for a drawing on some pretty great prize packages. So you could win again!

It has been my honor to be right in the middle of some of the great things our little digital family has done.  You people rock my world.  I know you can really make a difference here too.

Pictures!

I know, this was supposed to go up on Friday.  I’m a bad, bad blogger.  But really, I’ve only had two photographic entries for Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun.  You’ve got until the end of January to enter.

And without further adieu

BradBrad actually sent me several pics, but I picked this one just because I love all the smoke and implied noise.  That’s how to spend a weekend.  Brad doesn’t blog so I can’t link back to him.

And then we have Larry showing off his EBR

Well I’ll let Larry tell you about it

It’s a Saiga .223 with the Tapco trigger conversion, Tapco collapsible stock and pistol grip, Texas Weapons Systems Gen 1 dogleg scope rail, UTG quad rail foregrip, Grip Pod collapsible bipod grip and a quartet of Surefire 30 round “high-capacity ammunition clips”. That should be enough to give Fineshwine, Boxer, Jackson-Lee, et al the vapors…

I actually bought it with most of the fun stuff included but before the trigger conversion was done. At the time it had the Tapco T6 collapsible stock set that has the pistol grip integrated with the stock. In that configuration it was only 922r compliant with the 30 rd magazines.

I did the trigger conversion myself (Tapco G2 double-hook trigger group) and installed the new Tapco T6 stock and separate pistol grip, so now it is compliant no matter what magazine I’m using…which was the point of doing the conversion to begin with.

So there are the details. My Glock (36) only has 7 round magazines, so apparently I don’t have to worry about it getting up in the middle of the night and killing everyone in the house like the 11+ round magazines will do.

Thanks and best of luck!

My Beauty Routine

Ha! Like I’ve got time for some personal pampering routine.  That’s rich.

You see, I’m not a morning person and yet I like to leave the house at 7am to both beat the morning rush hour idiots and get my choice in parking spots at the office.  (I have a winter favorite and a summer favorite. Hey, I drive a black sedan.  In summer, shade is far more important than proximity to the door.) Of course, not being a morning person means I’ve got mad snooze button skills. Yo.

So I end up rolling out of bed with just exactly enough time to stumble into the bathroom for a shower. I am not actually awake at this point so routine is very important.  My early morning autopilot software hasn’t been upgraded or defragmented in years.  So it’s facial cleanser to make sure I’ve removed the make-up that I may or may not have actually bothered to apply the previous day but most certainly failed to remove the night before, wash the hair, condition the hair, wash the body, rinse and dry off. Done. (Nope, you didn’t see a mention of dealing with body hair because I rip the little buggers out by the roots on a  regular basis.)

One problem with this routine is that it is way to easy for me to skip the whole moisturize after the shower step. And I have chronically dry skin.  I could write you messages on my legs with my fingernails, dry.  Well I could, but I can’t now.

Why?

Because of this.

Dove Visible Care

It’s the new Dove Visible Care softening creme body wash with the highest concentration of their NutriumMoisture technology across the Dove product line.  Honestly, when they asked me to review it, I wondered what I might possibly have to say about a body wash.  I mean, I review things like ammo here.  But hey, I like to be clean so why not?

I have admit, seeing the ‘visibly more beautiful skin in just one week’ line made me a bit skeptical.  I mean, I’ve got pretty decent skin if I’ll take the time to take care of it.  Really, dryness is the only issue. But this stuff, it shoved that often neglected lotion applying step right into the whole get nice and clean step. Hence the reason I can’t draw pictures on my legs with my fingernails anymore.  Really, I should have taken a before and after picture because my skin even looks softer. Also, it helped sooth and speed up the healing where I had scratched my thigh raw due to mosquito bites. Total surprise there.

So here’s what they have to say about it

  • Designed to soften skin and dry spots
  • Rich, pearlescent creme format with luxurious lather and clean rinse
  • Contains a mild cleanser, glycerin and stearic acid
  • A white floral gourmand fragrance that includes an elegant combination of magnolia and pink jasmine

Soften? check. Dry spots? Check.  OMG! The lather!  I almost forgot to tell you about the lather. It’s thick.  Like soap opera languish in the tub thick.  Even with my hard water. And a little goes a long way.

OMG! Shower Picture

I was actually concerned about the smell when I got it. I don’t like perfumes, particularly overly floral ones, and this stuff smells very strong right out of the bottle.  But it rinses away nicely leaving just a soft clean smell. Honestly, the smell is neutral enough that the EvylRobot didn’t mind when I washed his back with it.

Also, it opens on the bottom.  I know this seems like a little thing, but my shower ends up littered with precariously balanced bottles because I’m cheap and I’m going to get every ounce of that stuff out. Dove was kind enough to save me from the early morning fancy footwork involved when I inevitably knock down all the other bottles.

Bottle Top

Yeah, Dove.  I see what you did there. While everything else is rolling willy nilly in the tub, there you are.  Steadfast and true.  And making sure I get every drop of those 18 ounces without attempting to defy gravity.

This being kinda sorta generally a gun blog, I was going to shoot it when I finished reviewing it. But I love it.  I can’t waste it like that.  When it’s empty, I’ll be spending some of my ill-gotten wheelbarrow of cash to buy more.  So you’re just going to have to settle for a chance at a $500 spa gift card instead (Details on the sweepstakes are at the bottom of the post).

So really, try out the new Dove Visible Care line.  It makes me feel pampered and luxurious and continue my relationship with my snooze button.

Psst. FTC-Yep, they provided product and this is a paid review. And you can kiss my nice soft ass.
