"Honey, there are a bunch of muscle-bound dudes in the dishwasher!"

So, my husband opened the diswasher and found Skeletor taking a bubble bath.

“Honey, there are a bunch of muscle-bound dudes in the dishwasher!”

I rolled my eyes. There were, indeed, Masters of the Universe figures getting washed in the dishwasher. This is part of my master plan, called “Project Grayskull,” to re-assemble my brother’s childhood collection of He-man figures and castles. I think he’ll be tickled pink. We’re both nostalgia nerds and have been exchanging presents from our childhood for years. But there’s a lot of this stuff out on eBay. A lot of it’s dusty. And I got tired of scrubbing it all in the bathtub.

So I thought…why not use the dishwasher? It has a ‘sanitize’ button? Should be fiiiiine…I mean…I put their armor and swords in the accessory basket so they won’t get sucked away. What could go wrong? It’s like spa day in Eternia. Behold, this is Dragon Blaster Skeletor, admiring his purple pedicure:

And it is, at least until husband gets into it looking for a glass and finds Hordak smelling like Thai Dragon Fruit. Yes, the Evil Horde prefers Cascade Thai Dragon Fruit. Use it, or Hordak will kick your ass and send you to an extradimensional hellhole. With slime.

And he’s not the only one affected by Project Grayskull. See Luna inspecting her newest housemate. It’s a big walking spider called ‘Spydor’ (duh). She’s not intimidated by it in the least. I’m hoping that she’ll be like those cats who like to ride their owner’s Roombas. How cool would that be? I would never need a book trailer. All I’d have to do would be direct readers to a video clip of “My cat riding a giant mechanical spider.”

More pix to come as the project progresses and I get things restored. I would really like to get Snake Mountain off my desk, though. And I gotta get some more Pantene before I try to wash Grizzlor.
