A Computer Keyboard That Fits On Your Keychain

Have you ever been somewhere with your cell phone – no computer – and really wanted a computer keyboard to type on? There have been a few times when I’ve been stuck typing out an entire blog post on my phone, with my thumbs. Not fun. But this laser keyboard might help. And while this […]


Brookstone Shiatsu Neck & Back Massager With Heat Review

I love a good massage. I’ve gotten more professional massages than I can count. When I’m done with my manicure and my nails are drying, I move over to the massage chair to be rubbed and kneaded while my nails dry. When I’ve got more time I go for the on-the-table naked “real” massage. I […]


A Take Anywhere, Water and Shock Proof Bluetooth Speaker

At this point there are so many portable Bluetooth speakers on the market that they all begin to blend together. They pretty much all have Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable batteries, and a jack for connecting non-Bluetooth speakers. So when choosing one you have to look for extras – what makes this one special, more useful than […]


Ion Sound Lounge: Bluetooth Speakers Disguised As Furniture

There are lots of bluetooth speakers on the market, but this is the first one I’ve been encouraged to sit on. The Ion Sound Lounge is a 2.1 speaker sound system. It looks like a foot stool and has a nice padded top, but inside there are two stereo speakers and a subwoofer. You can […]


Soup Socks, My New Favorite Kitchen Item

I can’t believe I’m writing an entire post about Soup Socks, but here I am. I was going to wait and put together a post like “Five Helpful Kitchen Items You Need To Buy Right Now,” but it’s late and I’m tired and I just want to spread the word to the soup and sauce […]


Jeans That Actually Fit My Curves! Hallelujah!!!

When I buy jeans, they automatically cost $25 more than what the tag says. I always have to buy a size up from what would fit my waist, in order to accommodate my thighs and butt, which are…generously proportioned. However, this leaves me with a huge gap in my waistband, so after washing I take […]


My SodaStream Experiment: The Results

A little over three months ago I bought a SodaStream and started a little experiment: Would I like the SodaStream drinks enough, and would it save me any money over buying cans of Diet Dr Pepper? Start-Up Costs The cost analysis was fairly straightforward. I started with the following items: SodaStream Source Metal Edition, $73.59 […]


FitBit Flex Review

Yesterday I wrote about whether or not wearing a FitBit Flex actually changed how much I moved around each day (short answer: yes, most days, but not when I was such a slug that my goal was out of reach). This post is more specific to the FitBit Flex and the website. How I […]


How To (Sort Of) Tame Your Out-Of-Control Pictures

Between a laptop, a desktop, and a large external hard drive, I think I have about 40,000 photos saved (it’s hard to tell because when I do an image search, many are parts of programs and not photos). You can tell when I got inspired and started a new method of organizing them. If you […]


Ants In The Cat Food

Every spring, like clockwork, the same thing happens: The weather starts to get warm, ants come inside to explore, and they infest my cat’s food dish. The first year this happened I noticed my cat (dear departed Selma) sitting by her food, staring at it forlornly. When I went over to investigate I didn’t see […]
