That is a lemur sneaking up on a fennec fox. For obvious reasons.

Here is a set of the 25 worst Life Magazine covers ever, with wry commentary. The fact that this is on the Life Magazine website makes me really like Life Magazine.

If you’re trying to get some writing done, Written Kitten will help.

If you would like to see a semicircle of white men looking very uncomfortable, Steve McQueen’s great commentary about diversity in casting is a good place to start.


Sink Positive – Eco-friendly bathroom sink

November 16, 2011

This is an amazing idea. It’s a new lid that attaches to any toilet cistern, re-routing the clean water that refills the tank up into a sink that you can use to wash your hands. The soapy hand-wash water then goes back into the tank to be stored for the next flush. Genius.


Cougars and Catwalks

November 8, 2011

Cougar sent me a new pair of boots to talk about: the style’s called Marla.

They’re an interesting combination of practicality and cuteness:
warm, waterproof, cold-weather hiking booties… with 3-inch heels.

I like to combine the practical with the cute, so I chose to model these while trying to take my reluctant cat for a walk.

Please to enjoy.

One thing about cats is that they don’t particularly like being “walked”. This can lead to conflict.

And/or lots of waiting around.

So, when walking a cat, it’s important to have comfortable feet, since no doubt the animal will stubbornly crouch in the grass and refuse to move for long periods of time.

I’m sure some very complex thoughts are happening in that fluffy head.

I’m talking about my head, not the cat’s head.

Man, my cat is adorable. Ok, look at the boots. The shearling interiors are nice and warm. The man-made, PVC-free outers are waterproof.

The laces are long enough that I decided to try a new thing and wrap them under the boot before I tied them. I dunno, I’m just an innovator, I guess.

My rating on these is a yes.

Mojo pretty much agreed, then wanted to go back inside.

Thanks to Cougar Boots and Matchstick Promotions for the boot hookup!
