Although I am not a fan of plush toys, I think these are kind of amusing.

E coli.

Another geek thing

Sure you could carry around a little flash light on your key chain, or keep one in your car, but how about just sliding a perfectly good light source right into your wallet? The Pocket Card LED Light is the same size as credit card and requires no batteries or wires. The interior piece has an LED light bulb, when you need to illuminate, you just flip it up and the light turns on.

Embrace Your Inner Geek

Although I was not a TRON movie fan, I absolutely thought that this hotel room was absolutely brilliant. Yngve Bergqvist’s Ice hotel in JukkasjÀrvi (near Swedish Lapland) is apparently, the only ice hotel that has embraced geekdom.

True Ingenuity

These pictures come from a series of advertisements promoting an aquarium.
80 penguins, 80 personalities.

If only my city's zoo or bird park would have something similar.

A fun read to start your day

Dear friends, it is with the saddest heart that I have to pass on the following:

The Pillsbury Doughboy died Monday of a severe yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out, including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The graveside was piled high with flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Doughboy as a man who "never knew how much he was kneaded".

Doughboy rose quickly in show business but his later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, even as a crusty old man, he was considered a roll model for millions.

Toward the end it was thought he'd rise once again, but he was no tart. Doughboy is survived by his second wife, Play Dough. They have two children, and one in the oven.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

A new year, a new start (hopefully).

2010 was not spectacular but neither was it depressing.

For the start of 2011 (or to be more accurate, while listening to the dying breaths of 2010), I have been rather obssessed with impressionist paintings.

This is one that I adore.

I am at a stage where I am questioning modernist thinking. Although when people talk about impressionist paintings, the first artist that comes to mind would probably be claude monet, lets take a step back, stop questioning about originality and rights of creativity, and just enjoy this piece of art, its skill and its artistry.
