Express To Your Nose
Even though I do not get that many colds, I like to have box of tissues at arm’s length or closer just about everywhere I go. Because here in The City, you never know when you are going to need a tissue: this much I have learned. In this never-ending flu season we’ve been experiencing for what seems like most of my adult life, it might be a good idea – if you are flat backing it in on the sofa and near death – to get yourself one of these remote control tissue box conveyor thingies. That way you can bring the tissue box of sweet relief to your sick and dying self by merely extending your weakened arm down to the floor. Comes in red, black or white, and sells for ¥3,690.00 (Japanese Yen) or approximately $40.71 USD from Geek Stuff 4 U Dot Com, what a bargain!
Geezus god, how cute is this pink iPig Speakal– an iPod docking station with speakers, that looks like a tiny pig!? Really fucking cute, is how cute. Want.
Mmmm, Smells Like Bacon!
What could be more alluring than having your significant other cuddle you close while remarking on how you smell like delicious bacon after showering with this tantalizing-looking Bacon Soap, available from Archie McPhee via The Neato Shop ($7.95/ea), of course!
“Shiver Me Timbers”
I love these “cool” little Skulls and Crossbones ice cube trays found online at the This Link. The trays sell for $6.80 each, plus shipping. I think they would make cool gift as well!
The price of a first class postage stamp will increase from 42 cents to 44 cents effective Monday, May 11th, 2009. So I’d suggest everyone head down to their local Post Awful some time before then and pick up a few books of the Forever Stamp, like I did this morning. By virtue of its name, the Forever Stamp – which can currently be purchased for $7.56 for a book of 18 stamps – will still be valid for the 44 Cent postage increase and all increases after that! So stock up now and save yourself the hassle of having to buy a bunch of 2-cent stamps!
