When you are parking yourself in the grass for some BBQ—or even just to eat take out with friends—don’t sit on the grass. There are bugs. And sometimes it’s wet. Put a picnic blanket in your trunk, backpack, or pannier and be prepared.
While you are at it, show your people who you are. Star Wars Fan? Spend everyday pining for the crew of The Serenity? Or maybe you just wish Ratatouille was cooking? Express thyself and forever more just be you.
Don’t eat fried chicken with people who are wondering about your politics. Show them your allegiance to the dark side with this Darth Vader picnic blanket. Who brings Darth Vader to a picnic? You do! That’s who. Cue the talking-through-a-SCUBA-regulator (“I am your faaather!!”) (“I am your faaather!!”) and get on with lunch.
This blanket will keep your hiney dry and the ants off your food. The bottom is water resistant but the top, where you sit, is a soft micro fleece.
It folds up into a handy carrying case so you can always have it with you.
This is a picnic, right? So why not bring a chef? Play some French music on your portable speaker. Get out the brie and bread. Sit down on this.
Your derrière will remain free of leaf debris and grass stains. The Camembert will be safe from the marauding insects. And you have created a (cartoonish but not ironic) atmosphere for your meal. That’s a lot of accomplish with one practical piece of equipment. Waterproof on the bottom. Soft on the top. Folds into a carry case. Waterproof on the bottom. Soft on the top. Folds into a carry case.
At a certain point, you have so much Hello Kitty stuff that you just have to commit. Everyone expects it. So when the food comes out and everyone finds a place on the grass, spread this out and enjoy. It will make it easy for everyone to find you. “Look for the bright pink Hello Kitty blanket!” And it’s a good blanket. Waterproof on one side. Soft on the other.
Park it right here and enjoy your protein supplements. Because the Firefly is a ship that will be a home for a long, long time. No matter what corruption and oppression happens with those people who think it’s their job to tell everyone else how to live? They can’t take the sky away from you. And this blanket says so, to whomever knows the language of Serenity.They can’t take the sky away from you. And this blanket says so, to whomever knows the language of Serenity.
Also, if you are enjoying a picnic on this, all the random people who stop by and want to join you because you are obviously cool, will get all your jokes. That’s worth the price of admission, right?
Who doesn’t love unicorns? Here they are all rainbows and happiness. None of that dark, unicorn-hunting imagery. Magical, chubby, happy, mythical unicorns all over the place while you dine in the grass. That’s a happy afternoon.
