Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!

I love that Office Max are selling personal (or professional) alcohol detectors.

"Test Friends, Family, Employees!!" their intervention.

"Screen the presence of alcohol" around my house. You don't need a $45 device to do that, just a working pair of eyes.

"Estimate your own alcohol level". I can estimate it without a device. If I'm buying this thing, I want an accurate reading, not a guess. I can guess - I've been doing that for years. Lately it's been 'low', but there had been years days that it was "bending the needle".

If it were cheaper, it'd make a great gag gift or something for a gift exchange. But it's not cheap, so it ain't worth it.

Fifty bucks. We got one for a friend last year, and then received one in a gift exchange this year. The hard part is to get an accurate reading, you can't smoke, eat or drink anything for 30 minutes before testing.

Gee, let's have a drunken party just so we can use that thing.

Is that legal, to test your employees for alcohol?
