Betcha never thought that a bespectacled belle from galaxies far, far away could be so adorably kawaii! The geek alien necklace by Antisparkle Apparel is perfect for a Sci-Fi Sally no matter her age; I can see this hanging ’round the neck of a 10 year old just as easily as one a few years (okay, decades) her senior. The delicate pink ball chain gives the girlie alien charm a sweetly feminine touch that seems to say:
“Come closer! I promise won’t bite, or even harvest your organs for intergalactic scientific research … much.” =^_^=
Doughnuts make such curious little snacks. They’re the alpha impulse-nosh food. So few ever really venture forth on an errand specifically seeking the lone pastry most people consume in one sitting; that’s probably why they’re so well-suited for convenience stores and quick, in-and-out eateries where people can get a snack and be on their way in a hurry. We’re almost never looking for them, but we want one when we see one.
But sometimes, we do. Coffee’s poured on a Sunday morning, the comfy sweats have been donned, the DVR awaits and suddenly, THIS MAN NEEDS COFFEE AND CRULLERS, STAT! Alas, nobody delivers doughnuts – and as we’ve well established, driving around the corner for a lone sweet treat uses gas that costs more itself these days than my snack. Doughnuts, like this conundrum itself, are a perfect, vicious circle. One vicious, tasty, irresistible circle.
This Sunbeam Doughnut Maker not only bakes the dunkable, frostable morsels, it actually prepares them healthier than most state fairs and even some swanky bakeries! Whereas they’re so often fried in more fat and grease than you probably care to ponder, the Sunbeam Doughnut Maker bakes up to five doughnuts in the style of a George Foreman Grill on its non-stick surface in about five minutes. From there, it’s your world. Frost them, sprinkle them, sugar them, glaze them, or just scarf your delicious home-baked doughnuts straight down.
Best of all, with so many people exploring gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free lifestyles, this is your chance to continue embracing one of the ultimate indulgent sweets with your own preferred tweaks and treats. Doughnuts needn’t mean the death of a diet ever again! [Source]
Every fascinating item we find has its story. For example: someone somewhere once looked upon an empty beer case and thought “hat.” No one knows who he was, or what he was doing. We can at least guess what he was drinking. Perhaps his roommates gave him one final warning, after his Dance of the Lampshade Hat once more resulted not in rain, or healthier crops, or a Kansas City Chiefs touchdown as he insisted it would. The jig probably instead gave way to the much less productive Crushing Of Another Lampshade Two-Step.
Whoever he was, whatever his motivation, give this genius credit: these lids prove that sometimes brain cells do survive beer baths. These sudsy stetsons are each made from a single 18-can case of Miller Lite, Coors Light or Miller Genuine Draft. Coors and Miller have both respectively officially licensed these hats, and each high crowned, wide brimmed, weather resistant hat includes an elastic band for comfort. One size will fit almost any dome.
Count on this being a conversation-starter. What we wear always makes a statement. And so does this hat: “Member Of The Opposite Sex, I love beer far more than I’ll probably ever love you. But at least I’m upfront about it. Yeehaw!”
Ah, the Slurpee/Slushee. It’s so unique to the juvenile American experience. Someway, somehow, I grew into loving much simpler adult beverages with ingredients I could actually name and pronounce. Coffee contains coffee … and sometimes Bailey’s. Diet soda? Easy: aspertame, caffeine and if drinking Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, 42 flavors of WIN. But there was a time during my junior high and high school years in South Dakota when I didn’t know what was actually in my neighborhood 7-11′s slush beverage of choice, and I couldn’t have cared less. When I finished mowing that store’s lawn once every couple weeks for $20, it tasted like victory.
This slush maker mug packs nearly a pound of “super-freezing refrigerant” into a patented 12 ounce Glaciercore that will freeze a sugar-sweetened beverage of choice into a slurpy, slushy, mushy brain-icing treat inside an insulated mug. No hurry, either: this better-drinking-through-science mug will chill your cool beverage down to 34°F for up to two hours while crystalizing the ingredients. And better news still? It easily fits inside most freezer doors.
Try a few flavors and find your best fit. Coke? Root beer? Sunkist? Nestle Quik? Cream Soda? Perhaps go bold and ice some strong coffee or espresso. Or for those moments when your inner child has come of age, grown hair in awkward places, and started having funny feelings toward the girls (or guys … maybe both?), pour in a White Russian.
Some little slices of adolescence never really leave. They just get better – and slushier – with age.
Straight things are just too … I don’t know, straight. Flat. And dare I say, untrue to life.
There’s no arguing a level surface’s practicality. Fragile nick-knacks and bric-a-brac probably shouldn’t tilt like a three-legged pinball machine, especially suspended over an unsuspecting house guest’s noggin. But where one can, I don’t believe anyone should bypass displaying books and such at an askew, rakish angle.
Each set of these decorative angled wall shelves includes three medium-density particleboard shelves in a trio of sizes, as well as all the needed mounting hardware. Their beauty is in the infinite potential for making form and function one’s own. The shelves can be left their original stark white, or come ready for a splash of paint at your leisure. The trapezoidal shelves’ uniform angle measurements make nesting the units together a bottomless sea of geometric possibilities; a designer’s puzzle where there is no one right place for any piece.
The more sets one uses, the deeper the options and the greater the potential mosaic becomes. Paint them or not, nest and fit them as you wish, but what ultimately creates the shelves’ accents will be whatever angle the items inside take.
Face it: life is no straight line. Things level off when they can, but nothing holds everything perfectly steady and level forever more. So take your storage space and make a statement that reminds the world how things ultimately really end up. The ground isn’t perfect, things slide about, but ultimately everything fits into place – even when some things remain just a little askew. [Source]
