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.

Enough random observations: bedtime for ye colubras who have found Ye Metrokane Rabbit Corkscrew and ye Bottle of Zinfandel.

Oh I am so gonna have a headache in the morning.
  • Bed, Bath, & Beyond has 'em for $10. 8-) Buy them for your friends!

    • They have the Rabbit for $10, not the Houdini (which seems to be a cheaper version of the same thing)?

      Eeeexcellent.
      • Well, I dunno what variant, but it's clearly a corkscrew of that type. I turned around and gave it to some friends as a WinterThing present, because they go through enough wine that I know it'd get a good workout. We'll see how well it lasts.

    1) take a b complex
    2) drink more water, doofus =)
  • But everything I drink comes with a screw-off cap! Liquor drinkers don't have time to mess around with corks, they gotta get drunk NOW.

    Thank you for the card and the nice thoughts, by the way. I haven't decided if my cynicism is true despair or an optimistic desire to be proven wrong. :)
