Gift ideas from MandyMag.com

It’s almost November, and that means it’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping! OK, I know holiday shopping can be stressful and I think it’s nothing short of stupid how people swarm to the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, but it should be fun and shopping online definitely helps!

Anyway, we’re here to help. Dee points out a couple great gift ideas in this article. This one has to be my favorite:

Hillary Clinton Nutcracker



Yup, the Hillary Clinton Nutcracker. It’s only a shame there aren’t more products like this for our presidential candidates, but I guess we’ll have to take what we can get.

All the forwards you could ever ask for at DeesInBox.com

We all get email forwards and, love them or hate them, many of them are damned funny! If you’re like me you hate the interruption that a constant flow of forwards bring along with the foolish chain letters and other garbage that typically come along with it.

Enter DeesInBox.com. Dee handpicks the best forwards to post on DeesInBox.com including jokes, stories, funny videos and pictures.

The site is great! You can go to the site anytime you need a little distraction (instead of being distracted when others send you forwards,) follow along through RSS, leave comments, and if you really must send something to all your friends, you can send a link instead of forwarding bunches of pictures.

Check out DeesInBox.com any time you need a good laugh or to catch up on the latest jokes, forwards and viral videos.

What’s in a name?!

I make no secret of the point that I love the webcomic xkcd and if I blogged every strip I like I would basically end up mirroring the entire comic here.

With that in mind, there is no way I could pass up posting this commic:

xkcd - Exploits of a Mom


Next time someone asks you what a SQL injection is you can point them at this, then explain nicely.

More things you don’t want to hear on an airplane

I find myself on the road again with another example of something you don’t really want to hear when you’re boarding an aircraft:

From a pilot clearly hurrying out of the plane: “Excuse me, I need to make sure this thing will fly.”

After my previous post of things you don’t want to hear on an airplane a couple people posted good comments, but I think this one is my favorite:

Kees posted: “Please fasten your seatbelts. We’re going to try to land.”

Another great low budget commercial

In the spring I wrote about a great list of the best local TV commercials, but we have a new contender!

From Appalachian State University (in North Carolina) this commercial is over two minutes long!

All I can say is this commercial is HOT! HOT! HOT!

Really though, you can’t beat a good sing-along. I can only guess this went around with recruiters.
