I’m sure this will surprise you, but I’m kind of a sucker for gimmicky deals. So, when I read about the Something Store, I was so excited I could barely breathe. Basically, ten bucks buys you “something.” I guess it’s kind of like a grab bag, and yeah, I love grab bags! The mystery of the unknown! The anticipation of what could be!
My something came the other day. It’s a USB mug warmer! Luckily, my father-in-law is totally in love with mug warmers, so he’ll be getting this one to add to his collection (I don’t think he has a USB one). I also sent “something” to Chicken. I kept it a surprise, of course, but then I finally had to ask her if she got SOMETHING in the mail. Well, turns out she did, but she thought it was from a crazy stalker. Apparently she got a blue satin prom handbag or, you know, something? Anyway, it’s all in good fun, and there are some awesome somethings out there!
and it’s a *Premium* mug warmer, no less
my husband and I ordered some “somethings” a few weeks ago. He got a little plant in an egg, and i got albert einstein sticky notes. I knew it would be pretty random, but einstein sticky notes? haha. all in good fun I guess.
This was my laugh for the morning, thank you!
My office mate has heated gloves that plug into her laptop USB port. They come in handy at some of our clients.
now, i have seen it all.
Oh, I made the green tea sweets (unfortunately with inferior instant matcha from my local Japanese grocery store). They’re tasty, but I’m definitely going to need to spring for the uber-matcha if I want them to actually be, you know, green (and to taste like green tea).
