Alarm clocks made from satan himself

3 Nov

I saw this over at unplggd today. I never thought to pair up the word ‘evil’ with ‘alarm clock’ but these little gadgets are totally that. Read on…

 

SnūzNLūz ($39.99), one of ThinkGeek’s notorious April Fool’s jokes, hits you where it hurts – your wallet. This sucker connects to your bank account over WiFi and donates money to a charity or non-profit that you hate. Each snooze sends them $10.

 

 

 

The Tyrant…because not only do you have to suffer by waking up at the crack of dawn, now your friends, loved ones and business associates might have to, also. Plug in your cell phone, and if the alarm keeps ringing it randomly dials a number in your contacts.

 

 

the Shredder Clock, a concept that’s meant to force you out of bed by shredding more of your precious cash the longer your sleep in. It’s currently only a concept, but still super evil.

Studanka in the Square

29 Sep

Yes I am full aware that while most people have dull surroundings while making a jaunt to the grocery store, I do not. A walk through old town square is usually required of me on a daily basis. Studanka Praha was playing in the square on my way to Albert the other day. Although there are maybe one or two cons to not having a car while in the city- this certainly is not one of them!

Love this band. The video “Please Turn” is from a scene from the 1962 film “Vivre Sa Vie” (My Life to Live) with Anna Karina.

 

 

For the video game nerds

8 Sep

Im totally inspired, motivated and obsessed with food (who isnt?). But food that resembles anything but it’s nutritional value- even better. With that said…who knew bento boxes could be so cool! If you grew up with video games from the 80’s on, you probably know the characters Donkey Kong, Zelda (my fav), Tamogatchi, etc.

All of these delish gems are made by this chick.

Childhood Doesn’t Wait

8 Sep

Ahem…and for a more serious tone. I found this posted on a cool blog about motherhood. Make sure to have a tissue handy!

Childhood Doesn’t Wait
(Author Unknown)

I was sitting on a bench
while in a nearby mall,
When I noticed a young mother
with two children who were small.

The youngest one was whining,
“Pick me up,” I heard him beg
but the mother’s face grew angry
as the child clung to her leg.

“Don’t hang on to me,” she shouted
as she pushed his hands away,
I wish I’d had the courage
to go up to her and say…

“The time will come too quickly
when those little arms that tug,
Won’t ask for you to hold them
or won’t freely give a hug.

“The day will sneak up subtly
just as it did with me,
When you can’t recall the last time
that your child sat on your knee.

“Like those sacred, pre-dawn feedings
when we cherished time alone
Our babies grow and leave behind
those special times we’ve known.

“So when your child comes to you
with a book that you can share,
Or asks that you would tuck him in
and help him say his prayer…

“When he comes to sit and chat
or would like to take a walk,
Before you answer that you can’t
`cause there’s no time to talk”
Remember what all parents learn
so many times too late,
That years go by too quickly
and that childhood doesn’t wait.

“Take every opportunity,
if one should slip away
Reach hard to get it back again,
don’t wait another day.”
I watched that mother walk away
her children followed near,
I hope she’ll pick them up
before her chances disappear.
