grilled cheese

Where was this brilliant idea when I was in college?

"Turn toaster sideways, get grilled cheese."

videos you must see

I just realized I have been neglecting to share with you the three best videos of all time. So, let's make up for lost time and get to watching...

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

I find it hilarious.

But don't stop there...
Make sure to watch part 2 as well.

And then, this...

You're welcome.

If you're wondering how I find all these delightful little websites, here's the secret: StumbleUpon. It's an addictive website and/or brower add-on that I guarantee will suck hour upon hour out of your day as you sit there clicking the little "stumble" button. Consider yourself warned. Seriously. It's dangerous.

After you register, you'll be asked to check off topics you like from a bunch of categorized lists. Once they know what you're interested in, they'll send you to a random site that fits one of your interests every time you push the stumble button.

I added this to Firefox about four years ago, and I don't even want to think about how many hours of my life are now gone because of it. BUT, I've also found some really good blogs and websites that I love and learned a lot of random information. I like random information. You never know when you're going to need to know the process of growing a prize heavyweight pumpkin. (The winner this year was over 1600 lbs, FYI.)

So, this is fun, but also deadly for your productivity. So be forewarned.

Uncommon Goods

If you're looking for gift idea inspiration for the holidays, I like the site Uncommon Goods for discovering fun little products. A lot of them are expensive/impractical, but there are some cool, reasonably priced things to be found.

What little kid wouldn't want to have this plate set? Okay, I'll be honest...I would totally eat off this plate right now. Just give me some mashed potatoes and corn to push around and I'd be set.

I'd be all about these as well:

So maybe I just like to play with my food. I do take about an hour to finish any meal, so I figure I might as well do something fun while I'm sitting around forever with my plate.

Easy and Useful Craft Project

How cute is this?


It's a lotion bottle turned self-hanging cell phone charging dock. You just chop up the bottle and decorate it however you see fit! I might have to make one.
