Continuing today’s trend of short posts with links to some of my favorite sites, I am coveting this:
It’s a lamp that you wind up. A wind-up lamp. That works. And it looks incredibly chic, to boot. The wind-up lamp can be found in all of its glory here at Geekologie.
Other things which I am currently coveting include:
- The original Monkey Island computer game. This was the first game to make me nearly piss myself laughing. While the other middle-school girls were experimenting with mascara and prank-calling cute boys, Yours Truly was sitting alone in a darkened bedroom insulting rogue pirates and using rubber chickens as escape devices. And people wonder why I was so unpopular in junior high.
- Some Thin Mints. Or some Grasshoppers. Just something that’s dark chocolate and minty. Like, a whole package or two of them. With a glass of very cold milk. WHOLE milk, dammit.
- Vacation time. Yeah, sure — I’m getting two weeks off for the wedding. But while I’m not saying it won’t be enjoyable, it certainly won’t be a vacation. I want deserted strip of beach-azure waters-ice cold beer-warm sun-maid service at the hotel in which my room has a beautiful balcony with French doors that you leave open the entire time-style vacation time.
- And a gold-plated Delorean. Because, why not?
