Timers! Timers to help you tick down the minutes until the THURSDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!
Here’s the deal: starting next Monday, all of November’s (and some of December’s) Awesome Shit That I Wants will be an Awesome Shit That You Get: either a giveaway, or a discount code for some of the retailers whose awesome goods have been featured in this very space.
To help the minutes crawl by, how’s about a new kitchen timer? I need one anyway, because every time I try to set the digital timer on the oven I end up turning the whole oven off by accident and not realizing until 15 minutes later when I wonder why my cake isn’t rising.
You could go all roly-poly with the Orb Timer from Unica Home, makers of the always-beloved and office appropriate “fuck” labeling system. The chrome version is kinda whimsical and classy, if that’s possible.
Bonus question: Did Swedes have a hand in making this timer? I’ll give you two guesses, but I bet you only need one!
Personally, I think Ill go with this triple-threat stainless steel baby from Williams-Sonoma.
Of course, it would have to be the most expensive of all the times I investigated, but it’s made of STEEL. I’ll be able to time THREE THINGS AT ONCE. In a pinch, I’ll be able to rub my hands all over it (in a non-sensual manner) to get rid of garlic smell. I’m going mad with power just thinking about it.
In any case, get ready for the HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!, starting next week with a whiz-bang giveaway.
Thursday Night Smackdown giveaways? Fuck yeah! Maybe all this cool stuff will help inspire you as well? (Creative slumps suck. I’ve been stuck in one for a while now.)
There’s gonna be an extravaganza??!?!?!?! YAY!
Okay, that Williams/Sonoma timer is freaking awesome!!! I so want that one! To be able to time 3 things at once? So useful!
I definitely need that Williams Sonama one…it’ll let me know when I’m burning three things at once.
Wait, so from “i don’t wanna blog anymore” to giveaways? I can dig it.
I like “extravaganza” but do we have to have the holiday part already? I’m not ready for THAT yet!
emily, putting together the giveaways and discounts is definitely helping – lots of fun!
PRS, maybe more like a jamboree, or a brouhaha. i haven’t quite decided yet.
cyndi, i might ask for it for my birthday. brian will feel bad buying it (he always hates looking like he’s buying kitchen goods for wifey), but i really think i need it.
jkc, word to that.
anna, i never said i didn’t want to blog, i just wanted to know how other people get out of slumps. i WANT to blog, which is why i’m trying to figure it out. putting together the extravaganza, which is not quite as extravagant as i’m making it out to be, is fun and revitalizing.
sally, hey, thanksgiving is a holiday.
wow… that Orb timer is awesome!!!
