I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte


http://www.goreydetails.com offers many very keen Edward Gorey things. The Christmas Dragon necktie makes me grin happily-- and hope that something Christmassy will happen between now and 25th so I have an excuse to wear it.


The Metrokane 'Rabbit' corkscrew is FUCKING AMAZING. Amazon gave me a nice deal on it so I picked one up- this is the most amazingly fucking cool piece of gears-and-levers tech I've picked up since I was a kid building catapults out of Lego and the like. This corkscrew is a definite 'boy toy'. Not in the 'willing to be toyed with by boys' sense, but in the sense that Barbie is a 'girl toy'. It's terrifically cool- and makes opening a winebottle A) not require effort of fingers or arms B) not take more'n about 5 seconds.
If you find yourself going 'Amazon's offering this to me for $40, and I'm tempted because it looks cool but IS IT WORTH IT'-- oh man, trust me, it is SO worth it.


crotalus_atrox makes me chuckle.
