Speling Roks

Pretty silly, but I had to think about a couple for a second…takes me back to my days as an 8th grader, training for the regional spelling bee after winning my school's competition….if only I hadn't mispelled gradient!  I would have gone all the way to DC!!!!

Sometimes I Wish I Was This Creative

Found this while I was searching the internets – no known author to attribute to, but I thought it was a pretty neat little animation.

Remind Me…

Found this via Limina's vox.  The video itself is freaking incredible.  You may also recognize the song as having been used in a fairly recent Geico auto insurance commercial (caveman walking along a slidewalk in an airport).  Combine the two and you have something I could watch all day long…

[Update 2/28] I showed this to my wife last night and she was unimpressed.  Then again, she tends to be unimpressed with most of the stuff that I geek out on.  Different strokes and all that jazz…

The Ties That Bind…and Stay Put

I found this site with an AWESOME idea for a fabric-based tie-stay that keeps your tie in place, is not passe like a tie-tack, and stays hidden at the same time. Bert Webb describes how to construct one or more of these out of an old dress-shirt, and I can't wait to try it myself. I can't tell you how many times I've had to readjust my tie, or keep it from blowing over my shoulder, or holding it back to make sure it doesn't dip into the sink when washing my hands, etc. Hooray for Bert!

Might As Well Face It, I’m Addicted to Woot

So there's this website out there, woot.com that has gained a lot of popularity over the past year. It's an online wholesaler of various gadgets, gizmos, and assorted goods, but with a catch. They only sell ONE item per day, starting at midnight central time and going to midnight the next evening. If the item sells out at 3 AM (which it does, quite often), there's nothing else sold until the following selling period. There are exceptions, such as the infamous "woot off", but in general you've got a site that sells one item a day for a sometimes bargain-basement price, has a blog/forum to discuss the item, and little else.

So why is it that I am addicted to this site? Why do I find myself wanting to stay up until 1 AM each night just to catch the next item and see if it's the deal of a lifetime? Why am I spending all of my disposable income and some that is not so disposable here? I've bought hard drives and wireless keyboards and swiffer-vaccums and all sorts of crap from woot, and there's no end in sight.

The answers to these questions are out there. But I don't know what they are. In the meantime, I'll just comfort myself in the knowledge that I have some self restraint and am not about to go buy the $600 projector or $1800 TV that was offered on woot last week. Now wireless bluetooth headphones for $29.99? That's a different story….
