Mike Konos Burnished Leather Boot

These shoes are so amazing.

image

The soles are made of that amazing Italian Rubber that smells exactly like Cabbage Patch Kid faces. (e:mike) you know what I am talking about.

image

I never buy shoes online but I tried these on at the store and they were awesome. For some reason they are $169 at the store but $129 online at the same company.

image

I asked at the store but they wouldn't match their own online price. That seems so stupid to me. It basic is relegating the brick and mortar store to a try on room.

I finally got my DSW account's merged and online access. For my trouble they gave me an extra 500 points which got me another $10 Cash Reward cert.

Lockitron - Smartphone powered door lock

Another thing I wanted to make is already made. I figured the price point is cheaper than I would have made it for with all the fuckups and melted circuit boards that would have occurred along the way. Although less fun.
  • so it monitors your door being locked an unlocked.
  • lets you send keys and revoke them as needed
  • lock and unlock the door remotely
  • not have to both carrying around a key when you already have a smartphone in your pocket
  • works with existing infrastructure

I pre-ordered now for $179 to save $20. They come out in march.

Its also arduino compatible and has an API. I can't wait.

When I said sheep in fishnet stockings, I was joking

Yesterday, I jokingly referred to sheep wearing fishnets and heels. Obviously I was joking as I don't see what that would be necessary with sheep already sexy as they are naturally. Anyways, like everything I think is original, its already been done. Apparently, its even already been mass produced and is available for $34.99 (hint, hint to anyone planning a bachelor party)

New Year's Food - Crab Legs


I made the trip down to Eden's Exclusively Alaskan in order to pick up crab legs for my mom's New Years dinner party. We had a $50 gift certificate to start with so it was a good start. Also got some scallops and salmon in a jar. The guy threw in, according to him, the world's only seafood pierogis. I am excited to try them.

Fashion Rubbers - Tingley


My whole life I made fun of my dad for wearing rubbers on his shoes. Then as ana adult I got my own fancy leather shoes and syarted walking to work through the salty slush. Suddenly, it all made sense so for christmas this year I asked for my own rubbers and got em from my dad. I have been wearing them ever since.

Lima Beans and Grapefruit


Only a few things were left in the fridge and I couldn't get the car oit so I decided to do some weird mix and matching. I came up with lima beans in pink grapefruit sauce. I wish the color was better in the picture. The light green on pink was really pretty.

The Freakin Snow


Its so deep right now. I can't believe someone parked at the end of my driveway like there wasn't a driveway. We shoveled the snow onto their car like it wasn't there.

First one Shoveled


Walking home through a foot of snow sucked. I was the first one shoveled on my block for once. I am not even bothering with the driveway as the car never goes anywhere.

Tablet Christmas


My mom kept hinting she wanted something touchscreen for a while now so (e:mike) and I got my parents a tablet for christmas. We got them the Asus transformer tablet 300t. Its 32gb, quad core with tegra 3 graphics running Jelly Bean 4.1.2. The hdmi out works great with the tv so they can rent movies on google play and stream them right to the tv.

At first we had reservations if they would/could use it but by the time I left they were so into it that I witnessed my mom try and pull it out of my dads hands to play a game he was playing, haha.

On the way home mike and I both google talked them to say we were home and they responded via the tablet. They even gave me a google talk voice chat to say goodnight.

I got them on pandora, google talk, a bunch of games, google music, google play, google earth, skype, chrome and more.

It was fun ripping their old CDs on their comp and watching the songs seamlessly show up on their google music app on the tablet.

Then we played a cooperative game of word search.

Top of my gift list this year: two pairs of texting gloves (wool pair and leather driving gloves) and the simple design salad bowl I have wanted for months. Now I am goung to need the whole collection.
