Oh internet...

If I were to die and in the back of my closet someone found an alter to Tom Hanks, no one would be surprised. I haven't completely lost it and built one yet, I'm probably waiting for dementia to go all out on that one.

With this being said, Tom Hanks was an obvious choice for my post this week. I'm pretty sure everyone has done this at least once in their life, while on a site like etsy, pinterest, craigslist, artfire, amazon or ebay you type something random in the search bar and giggle over the random items that appear for sale.

I can't even put these in any kind of order because I don't have a favorite, they all kind of make me go WTF?! in their own special way.

First up is what Etsy had to offer:

The shop owner, Billy A.B had this to say about the shirt

"MIcrosoft Windows 98 and Tom Hanks with a fruit which is somewhere in between a raspberry and a pineapple, hand screen printed onto an orange Gildan Ultra t-shirt. Now ONLY Available in S and XL. We have some mediums left on a white t-shirt, if you want this, please let us know in the order notes :)


Buy the t-shirt and become even more confused.

I could not have said it better myself. 

My next stop was Ebay, where I found this charming piece. 

I had no idea zombie cards of celebrities existed, but wow, am I glad that they do. I'm also happy to see Wilson make an appearance. 

Amazon was next on my list and this is what it brought me. 

It's possibly one of the most upsetting things I've ever seen. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know a darn thing about art. It's hand painted so that's admirable and it certainly looks like Tom Hanks. Perhaps that is why I find it so off putting, he appears to be upset or in pain and I'm just not ok with that.

Artfire was my next stop. 

I've seen decks of cards like these before. I actually have a card that my great uncle was depicted in for his time playing football at Notre Dame, I ended up displaying it in a photo frame with other items because I just wasn't sure what to do with a playing card. This little number is a paper weight and I actually think that's a great idea. I just wish I used paper...

Checking out craigslist provided me with a most unusual Tom Hanks reference.

I can only assume that the above picture is the author of the posting titled "ARE OUR PATH CROSSED". 

Dear Soulmate,

Have we met yet? Are our paths crossed? Will they ever? Every day, I wonder if you are already close to me or if you are some non-being yet to exist in my bubble of knowledge.

I've been waiting for you for a long time. If you know me, you should show yourself soon, I am getting tired of waiting. Of course... If you really are my soulmate, and I believe you are, then I am just being silly and impatient.

Soulmate, maybe you haven't come out yet because you don't know me well enough. --Have you run away because you know me too well? I want to know all about you, and yet a part of me wonders if the mystery is more romantic.

Is there only one of you out there, or do you have a twin brother or sister that you can introduce me to? If you know, please tell me, because I have been feeling a little lonely lately.

I saw the movie "You've got mail" the other day. The part where Meg Ryan was supposed to meet with Tom Hanks at a coffee shop, she has a flower as an indicator, a symbol, of who she is. Will you be holding a rose too? In a coffee shop?

How will I know who you are from all the other people in the world?

Are you just like me, or are you my opposite and compliment in every way?

I thought I found you once. I really did. You were beautiful, and you smiled at me, and you said everything I wanted to hear. You made me laugh, and you made me feel beautiful, you made me feel so complete, even though you were never mine.

It wasn't really you, though. It was just somebody with your mask on.

Dear Soulmate, are you happy right now? I hope you are, I would never want you to be sad or hurt, even if I haven't met you yet.

Dear Soulmate, whether you're my best friend, or somebody from the other side of the world, please let our meeting as soulmates be special. Please let it be wonderful. I know my eyes will fill with tears of happiness even if it's not a perfect moment, because when I find out who you are, I don't think that anything can dampen the elation I will feel.

Dear Soulmate, I know I will love you with all my heart, and I can't wait for us to fall for each other in a way that is not like falling at all but is more like flying above all others, being next to each other, holding each other, helping each other.

I can't wait.

PLEASE put "LOVE LIFE " in the subject line when you send me your information so I know its not a spam,.All emails without the word LOVE LIFE in the subject line will be delete


And finally, Pinterest via DAMNYOUAUTOCORRECT provided me with this.

I find this highly amusing because there is a chance that that would happen in my phone one day.

I hope you enjoyed all the warmth and happiness that Tom Hanks can bring to your soul. Now be honest, do you amuse yourself with search bars the way that I do?
