The ingenuity of humankind is so astounding. We can make beautiful things out of what would otherwise be viewed as trash, and even after thousands upon thousands of years, we’re still coming up with brand-new ideas. If you’re a fan of video games, and also enjoy puffing a bit of smoke out of your face, then you might like what two fellows in Indiana came up with.
I did it again this year, spent an entire day setting up and decorating the tree. I have to admit that I love it! What I don’t love? Taking that sucker down again, taking off each ornament and putting it all away, piece by piece. I promise to have it back in the basement before Valentines Day next year… and then, I’ve got to find a better way.
Perhaps the most terrifying thing about picking up an instrument for the first time is not knowing what to do. Are there strings to pluck or bow, or buttons to push while buzzing your lips into the mouthpiece? It can be quite overwhelming if you don’t have any guidance. While the best instrument to start on is piano, there are other options out there if you just want to have your own jam session.
Okay, I can hear you all groaning already, and I did too when I came across this seemingly wacky device designed to tan only your feet, while you toil away at your desk. I chuckled to myself as I thought of the humorous post I could spin from this ridiculous device when my husband, who plays golf as much as humanly possible, hopped out of bed with his disturbingly pale feet. I realize that runners, and climbers, and just about anyone else that enjoys outdoor sports might be suffering from cadaverous-like feet.
I guess there could be any number of reasons you don’t want to go outside to engage in your kite-flying pursuits. Rain, cold weather, Benjamin Franklin-esque electrocution paranoia, fear of zombie apocalypse, or perhaps you simply can not tear yourself away from your favorite soap operas, or the nightly news. Whatever the case may be, I’ve got you covered.
Halloween is over, but that doesn’t mean that my thoughts are not still dwelling on ghosts and skeletons… (and of course the 7 pounds of candy sitting in the basket downstairs.) But while my thoughts are still on dead things, It made me start to wonder about the many ways you could be laid to rest. I mean, I’ve never considered myself a traditional kind of girl, so whats out there for me?
They say that laughter is the best medicine and I guess I would have to agree. Around here some of our best days have nothing to do with big, heavily planned events, but more about the laughter we have shared over something silly. This being said, I’m constantly on the lookout for small items that can add to to my arsenal of pranks and practical jokes…
Waking up in the morning means trudging to the shower and hoping we have enough time to sit down and eat breakfast before we leave the house. Our most hated enemy, that we are simultaneously glad is in existence is our alarm clock. There are some that turn on a light to slowly ease you from sleep, and others that blare screeching sounds at your until you throw it across the room.
In every cartoon or TV show, when someone is in a bad mood or sad, a raincloud will appear over their heads and downpour on them. Needless to say, most people don’t want something like that to happen unless they are either in the middle of the desert, or in desperate need of a shower. Thankfully that doesn’t happen in real life, but storms definitely do, and even though the rain isn’t exactly fun all the time, listening to thunder and seeing the lightning is certainly peaceful.
There are always little things around the house that we keep meaning to get to, but push aside for another day. It can take us anywhere from days to months to get around to taking care of whatever it may be. More often than not, it’s also something that would better our lives, and we have all the tools to fix it, but the factor of motivation just isn’t there. However, once the task is done, you get a massive feeling of accomplishment that drives you to do more.
