Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - "Row"

********************
Even though I didn't originally have a photo in my collection for this week's theme of "Row" it was pretty easy to get one as Amanda has been on a Java Monster kick lately and I simply had to line up the empty cans that she has insisted we keep because "they look nice". Hum ... yeah ... let's decorate the house with empty Monster cans - great idea Amanda! (Like we don't already have more clutter than I know what to do with!)

Energy drinks are pretty popular with teens these days but Amanda seems to be particularly partial to Monster and when I brought her home one of the new java ones she went totally crazy as it was the perfect combination of her beloved coffee and her favorite energy drink. Who knew? Now she asks for one anytime I'm going to the local Cumberland Farms but I try to limit her intake. After all, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing - especially when it comes to energy drinks and hyper teens!

Maybe now that the cans are immortalized on my blog she'll let me put them in the recycling bin this weekend. After all, she has the tabs on a necklace already along with the tabs of other Monsters that she's had.

Teenagers ... I just don't get it sometimes! But then again, I've never had the guts to try one of these things. Hmm ... maybe one of these days when I can't seem to kick-start my behind to work in the morning I could try a seeing what a Monster can do for me. If I end up totally strung out and bouncing off the walls it could make for a great post!

Everyone have a great Saturday and happy hunting! Don't forget to visit TNChick to find more great photo hunters or to join in the fun!

  5. I've never heard of "Monster Java" energy drink. We have "Red Bull" here in Malaysia, and probably a few other brands :)

    But I usually don't take them because I'd prefer chocolate bars, LOL.

  6. Hi Linda. That's a catchy name for an energy drink. I'm sure that can come handy for me.

    You have a very talented and creative daughter. Hope many doors of opportunities will open for her.

    Thanks for the visit.

  9. Those drinks are SO popular. I see the kids at the high school drinking them all the time, but I have never tried one either. Maybe I should!

  13. Java Monsters. I love the design of the can. So cool! I would love to try one. :)

    Happy weekend!

  14. Aren't energy drinks full of caffine to begin with? Yikes! Not sure I want my teen son seeing these. He's all for the Max drinks or whatever they are.. all I know is he talks your ear off after drinking them!
    Great pic and I have to say your daughters art work is just too cool!!

  15. Hey, Linda! Well, I learned something today. Never heard of Java Monster. I don't think I want my kids to get started on it, either. Esp. Mattie-Boo. The kid has enough energy! :-)

  16. I think i need one of these to give me boost to do the housechores....(yaaawwwnnnn...)
    Nice picture and at least the empty cans came useful.. ;)
    Have a great weekend!

  18. Your daughter I must say is very talented and yes, she's right, these cans look cool.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nice pic. I don't think Java Monster is available here in the UK. I'll make up for it by drinking a gallon of coffee instead! Happy weekend

  20. I've never had this brand but I've needed them a time or two. I like them! But I also like Starbuck's coffee beans. An extra jolt of caffeine is good at the onset of a vascular migraine - as long as you don't mix it with meds.
    I'll keep my eyes open for these!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those cans look so fantastic.
    Thanks for the visit.

  25. Linda, I've never tried one of them either, but I am a big coffee drinker, so it probably wouldn't even faze me! Thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek...and have a great energized weekend! =)

  26. They are neat cans, but they will probably start getting in the way after a few days! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cool shot! The cans looks neat, but I wouldn't want to try any of those energy drinks. Some people have very bad reactions to those kinds of drinks - they aren't exactly healthy!

    My row photo.

  28. I haven't heard of this energy drink; what a title!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Okay...Amanda has me curious. I guess I need to go out and buy one of these drinks to experience the energy which apparently comes from drinking them. Watch out world!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My daughter has a similar collection. Like you I won't go near the stuff. I hear it's like drinking a pot of coffee .. lol! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. The cans make a nice row...I bet the teens that drink those would have a hard time standing still in a row...:)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nice cans, Linda! (No, that wasn't "Drew" typing just now!) Seriously, nice picture. Now, YOU on "Monster" in the morning?!?!? All we can say is, thank goodness you work w/Paramedics & EMT's! It would, however be an improvement over your "Dead Man Walking" persona!

    ReplyDelete
  33. It makes me jittery just to think of energy drinks, much less one with caffeine! I have found that taking pictures of some things helps me get rid of them -- maybe that will work for your daughter, too. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Those cans really are quite artistic, I can imagine them printed onto a snowboard or skateboard. I don't blame your daughter for liking them!

    ReplyDelete
  35. they are great for the rush....but I kinda suffer from the downside...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I do like the design of those cans, cool row

    ReplyDelete
  37. ok guess I'm a dork, thought you'd gone on vacation cause the contest stayed at the top.....

    ReplyDelete
  38. The cans do look cool--perfect lineup for this week's theme.
    I have never heard of this energy drink. But then again-I usually just use coffee as my energy drink :)

    Have a wonderful weekend and happy hunting.

  39. Not only in a row but would have worked for FUNKY last week too!

    Come see mine.

  40. This post struck such a cord. I am so glad my kids are not teens anymore (but sad they are all grown): I don't have to deal with these things now. Like you, I have been wary of trying these new drinks, and they are everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Mmm...I've never tried. But, I think I should! They look awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Never heard of this stuff but i want it NOW!
