Cart-Worthy + Heart-Worthy

Is this calendar from SusyJack not the super-coolest calendar ever? You can hang one page on top of another, like a normal calendar or you be AB-normal and hang them like this - all spread out! OR you could hang them by quarters, so you can always see what's going on around you. The prints are so fresh, the colors are crisp, the whole effect is like art. When you're done, slip them into frames and they ARE art.

When we were younger, my grandpa would carry long, skinny balloons in his pockets and where ever we were, (but especially in restaurants) he would bring out a few and start making animals. He made dogs and flowers and small round balloons inside larger, cylindrical ones. Balloon animals always make me think of going to breakfast with my whole family. And since my kids probably won't get that experience (the balloons, not the breakfast), then this is second best. From Art Star.

ThinkGeek is one of my nerdy guilty pleasures - they have EVERYTHING you need but didn't know existed. Like this stealth switch - it's a USB connected foot pedal that tabs through your windows when pressed! SO YOUR BOSS DOESN'T EVEN KNOW YOU WERE HERE! I would totally buy this (since I do 99% of my shopping, posting and general internetting from work) if my boss wasn't my dad and wouldn't be like, "KATE, what is this cord? Are you bringing viruses into my office?"

"Of course I am, Dad. I'm actually a double agent; the Russians sent me here to disable your home office."
