Potential Signs Of The Apocalypse

If Ty Pennington (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) and Tyra Banks (America's Next Top Model) did a show together.

Or Something Like That

This went through my head the other day:

Television was to radio as lighters were to matches.

(yup video killed the radio star and lighters killed the... match stick boy?)

Good Point

Open note to homemade soap makers - your bars of soap should not have corners so sharp that they can tear skin.

Due to certain terrible, terrible pains while trying to use the left side of my mouth to chew I need to go to the dentist.

My appointment is at 8am this morning. Yup, 8am on a Monday morning, the dentist. Since I haven't been to a dentist since the summer of '03, I can only assume that this will be nothing but a pleasant experience.

The World Would Be A Better Place

There are many things that I covet - or maybe its not that I covet them, because I don't necessarily know people or places that have them. I think it might be that I'm greedy and have a sense of self entitlement - yup, that's it.

I think this post might start a series about things I think I should own, and I think the world would be a better place if I owned them. Sometimes the universe should just pony up and get me these tools to fantasticness. In the meantime I'll just keep pining (no fjords).

Today's thing 'o necessity is this:

If you guessed that it is a 1 1/2" Button Maker Machine with Graphic Punch and 250 Button Parts from you'd be right! Good for you! Let's talk a little more about this exciting collection of bits shall we?

This combo contains:
  • the Button Maker Model #150, which produces standard 1-1/2" buttons, it can make a magnet, bull dog clip or key chain simply by assembling a button without a pin and adding the neccesary accessories
  • 1 1/2" Graphic Punch (aka the guy who cuts out the circles for you)
  • 250 pinback button sets
Can we just sit for a minute and dream about the fun buttons I could be making - oh man... the hilarity, the communication, the wonderment. I can scarcely believe that there are only 357 U.S. dollars (plus shipping and handling) standing between me and some awesome pieces of metal that would aid me in making some rad, rad, world bettering buttons.

How can the universe be so cruel as to not have provided me with one thus far. Sigh... someday.

The Despising

It is not really a hidden fact that I really despise doing dishes. The other day in the act of doing said despised activity I came to a few conclusions on why there is so much despising.

  1. "Old" food - I'm a finicky princess and I don't like dealing/touching with food that has been all mucked up, may have been in or near someone else's mouth and I especially don't like touching it after it's been in the sink for 10 minutes and has become soggy "old" food.
  2. Back pain - there are few sinks that are at just the right height and closeness to the counter that don't cause me to bend and begin to ache as begin to wash the plates.
  3. Excema - I have excema on my hands, it is worsened by exposure to moisture. A sink full of dishes in water is quite moist. I love itchy, red hands that have a rash on the palms and fingers. It is my favourite.
It made sense to my itchy hands, sore back and alerted gag reflex that dishes might not be their best friend.

So there, that that dishes!
