elite geek products

I've been 'spring cleaning'. My obsession with my large paintings has caused so many other things to slide at this very busy time of year (end of school, end of Aussie Rules season and all the celebrations and field trips and games and performances that it all entails) that it finally got the better of me on the weekend. Today was the annual window-washing, which means I'm almost done. Does it get any better than this? (Don't answer.)

To make up for the lack of grey matter function that all this activity requires I'll let Rudy take over with a selection of elite geek products. I particularly like the ones illustrated here: designer band-aids. But wait! Here's Rudy with more:

Talk about false advertising. That stupid carpet doesn't actually fly! Hmm. Maybe if they added a few jet engines...

I don't want a flying carpet, I want an invisibilty cloak.

I like the carpet - but I want an all-weather version that I can put out on my patio...

... the monkey head was featured on David Letterman as one of the number favorite gifts for men. Not sure what that says, LOL... ~v

Such coolness -- I got a little excited by the prospect of a "flying carpet" and it wasn't quite what I expected but cool nevertheless. And that loft apartment with the red refrigerator! Also love the bandaids. They make great stocking stuffers. I've purchased the bacon bandaids as gifts, they make you want to wear them even when you don't have a boo-boo. I also discovered "gummy bacon candy" lately (strawberry flavored, but very bacony looking!)

I'm going to try and get some of those plasters ( what we call band-aids) and sneak them into Jack's sports medical kit when he travels to Australia in a couple of weeks. He's got fed up of the Barbie and Mickey Mouse ones that I used to buy when he was younger.

You inspire and delight as usual x
