Too many ninjas in my life

After 2 years of longing, my husband finally got the object of his dreams – a Ninja Blender.

He was sucked in 2 years ago on a trip to the U.S., where several channels seem to be required by law to run day-long advertisements about the life-changing Ninja Blender. Apparently, your life is not complete without one and once you buy one, you attain total enlightenment. At least, this is what I assume from my husband’s obsession with it.

Ninja Blender isn’t sold in Sweden, but my husband figured out that he could order one with our voltage from the UK. It arrived yesterday. Nothing got done for over an hour as smoothie-making and worshipping at the Ninja altar took precedence.

Since acquiring the sacred Ninja Blender, I’ve noticed how the word “ninja” seems to be in all aspects of society. Of course, there are Ninja Turtles on t.v. and the movies, but there is also the video game “Ninja Kiwi” that my  kids play constantly on the computer, as well as “Fruit Ninja” on the phone and “American Ninja Warrior” on the t.v. in the U.S.

But my favorite has to be Ninja Burger delivery service. Unfortunately, it does not appear they are active in Sweden, but look at their list of countries!  (*except Detroit – apparently too dangerous even for a ninja)

Swimming ninjas

This is what my 6 year old thinks synchronized swimmers are.  I think they should consider re-branding themselves this way.

Limited Ninja Restaurants

I’m looking for some places to eat in the neighborhood we will be staying at on our summer vacation.  One restaurant is listed as “the city’s only ninja-themed restaurant.”

Really, the only one?  Where I come from we have 9 down by the river.  Man, this place is behind.
