This thing is Evil!! I got mine on Amazon too. I have not been brave enough to use the voice that says "can you hear me" yet. I am afraid it might throw someone over the edge!!

Glad to be of help!

For the last few years, at least one of the families in our group has had their first kid, so they always get an open-it. And it is always in a package marked OPEN FIRST. Real original, right?

I swear, I could just happily hand over my whole paycheck to ThinkGeek... lol. I that place so much!

Speaking of them and gifts, if anyone has a guitar-playing child/spouse/friend/whatever, the guitar pick punch that ThinkGeek has is awesome. I got DS one last Christmas and he *loves* his!! You can take any old card that is no longer used and make your own custom guitar pick. It's SO cool. Functional, and sentimental. DS has used old KTTW cards, used-up gift cards, arcade cards, you name it, and made really cool guitar picks. There's a window so you can line up a specific part of the card (like Mickey!) and punch it out just in the right spot. It's just a really cool gift.

I saw this and thought it was a great gift for DH, but is it worth $25? Still on the fence....

In sheer value of how many picks you'd have to punch to make it equal out in cost, probably not... But in sentimental value, and "cool" value yeah, at least for DS. He loves that his picks don't look like anyone else's, and he loves that each pick has some sort of story behind it.

Thanks to this thread I have now bought a Trevis Tumbler, Butter Bell and the book "Ready Player One" and am considering the huggable hangers.

For those that have the huggable hangers do they really save that much room in your closet vs. other types of hangers?

If you (or the person Ready Player One is for) like it, you'll be happy to know the author just announced the sale of his second book, titled "Armada" that will be about "the ultimate wish-fulfilment for every video game fan on the planet."

The Huggable hangers do save a lot of room. We now have them in all of our closets. Another great feature is the hangers have a velvet like texture which keeps clothes on the hangers- even silks and wide necked blouses.

Be careful giving stuff that is made from animals...like the Alpaca stuff. DH was rubbing my sore back with some emu oil several years back that we got from a local provider. It had a eucalyptus scent. About 5 minutes after he finished his fingers where the size of corn dogs and the skin was starting to peel . So was it the emu or the eucalyptus?? The world may never know.

My point is who would have ever known that? DH used to work for a vet too.
I cannot be around cats--didn't figure that out until I was in High School and my Mom adopted one.

Just a thought.

Now I must leave work, go home, and look up the Eviltron thingy.
