Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day - January 26th

Happy Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!

I am indeed a bubble wrap connoisseur. I love the stuff! For a little fun, try this cool game online by clicking the square of bubble wrap below!

Warning: you may waste a lot of time figuring out how to play songs on this thing.

I love the disclaimer on their site:

"Disclaimer: Virtual Bubble Wrap is a fun site with a flash game that lets you pop bubble wrap on your computer. This site is intended as humor and is not to be used to protect fragile items while transporting. We accept no responsibility for damage to your computer or belongings should you attempt to package your breakables with our virtual bubble wrap. Please enjoy our fun flash game which is a silly, strange, bizarre, weird, useless, funny, silly, mindless, time waster and stress reliever. "

While this next link doesn't have the musical option of the first, it does give a tiny taste of the satisfying "YES!" you get from popping bubble wrap. Click on the roll of bubble wrap for a fix of virtual bubble wrap bliss.

Did I mention that we have a ton of bubble wrap here at work? A huge roll of it actually! We use it to package and send CD's. I may send some today just so I can play with the bubble wrap. (In honor of Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day of course, not just because I like bubble wrap, silly!)

I just spent some time blissfully popping virtual bubble wrap. What a hoot!!! Although, it is fun, it doesn't quite satisfy like popping the REAL bubble wrap. Thanks for the fun. Love you, Mom :-)

Question, How does one show their appreciation to Bubble Wrap on Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day? Do you pop a few or leave it alone. Your dad and I never had the "luxury" of bubble wrap. We used popcorn to ship things. I prefer watching people pop a whoopie cushion myself. Ask your dad about Wanetta in Jefferson and what we did to her with a whoopie cushion!

Bubble wrap is VERY popular with the tot crowd around here. :-) I just read a crafty article about pressing bubble wrap into a stamp pad and then onto cardstock to make cards. Produces a pretty cool pattern.
