I made the mistake of perusing the online Payless Shoes store yesterday only to be delighted by all the new and awesome styles they’re selling. They seem to have moved out of the icky shoe phase that was apparent the last time I visited. Here’s some last minute Christmas ideas for me:


and maybe these

wouldn’t wear these much but I still want them

and these look fun too.

Anything Left-Handed

What an awesome site, unfortunately it’s based out of the UK but they do seem to have pretty good worldwide shipping rates. Although as lefties we generally just adapt there’s some really awesome looking things on that site that I wouldn’t mind getting. There’s a left-handed mouse and although I use the mouse on the right side I do know some people that use it on the left, there’s even a left-handed keyboard with the number pad on the left side (that could take a little getting used to). There’s rulers where the numbers start on the right side instead of the left. I personally wouldn’t mind the butter knife so that the serrated edge is on the proper side. There’s a whole wackload of pens, notepads and other stationary and we all know of my love for pens so of course I’ve already found a least two or three that I’d like to buy. If I buy anything I’ll let you know but for now I’m just going to keep browsing and see what else I can find.

I want this pen, it’s for lefties and it has some funky looking erase-ability option. Make note people, that’s a the top of my Christmas wish list.



New This, That and the Other

Wow there’s been a whole lot of new stuff the last few days, well not a whole lot but a few things, enough to keep us busy.

First and foremost the biggest of our new stuff is our new computer. Woohoo. We’ve been keeping and eye on the computer prices for the last month or so and the combination of a non-rent payday and a really good sale at best buy resulted in us coming home with a new computer last night. It’s so exciting, can’t say that I’ve ever actually purchased a new computer, they’ve always been hand me downs from Mom and Dad. So that felt pretty darn good, then we had to decide who got to use the new one. It came down to the fact that of our two current computers Simon’s was the slowest and the oldest so he got the new one. It’s not been easy and I’ve had moments of weakness but overall he’s spent most of the time on it without me trying to help (aka take over). Every time he goes to the bathroom, or does something in the kitchen I jump onto it and play around a bit more. It’s been fun. In case your wondering what we got here’s all the specs on CNET.

The other newness is During a moment of insanity I decided to register another domain, you can read about it on the blog I set up over there. You have to read it to understand why we went with that domain.

That’s actually it for new stuff, unless you count the groceries Simon just got back from the store with, but those are hardly blog worthy so I’ll move on. It just seems like more newness until you start writing about about it. OK I’m definitely rambling now, enough for tonight.

Oh yeah, there’s a couple of flickr picks to check out on the new puter.


Just playing around with the FlickrRSS plugin and I need a post to fill up some space.

UPDATE: Woohoo it worked, notice the pics above, up there, yes there.

Bottle Cap Tripod

Oh sure now that we’ve bought two tripods, I find this. Looks so handy for those times that your out taking pics and have forgotten to bring a tripod.


Double Helix Bracelet


We may have to take a trip to the Vancouver Art Gallery this weekend and see if I can find myself one of these neat bracelets, they’ve got slinky bracelets too. I’m so excited.


You Are a Dog

I am officially adding this book to my wishlist, anyone wanting to buy me something this will do.

Here’s an excerpt I found on Flickr (it’s from the first comment)


Duke was always afraid of the vacuum, still is, he didn’t bark at it thought he would just run away and hid in a far away corner until you were done and had put the beast away.

Optimus Keyboard


I am all about getting my self one of these.
