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!

Have you even noticed I haven't posted a Shopping with Blobby segment since August?  I kind of knew I skipped a month, but not two.

Two points of clarification:

1.  This is not my item. Je did not find this nor knew of its existence. This was sent to me a few weeks ago by my friend Meredith. I howled when I opened it and showed it to 710 immediately.

2. I hope these truly exist. I would so buy them.

For you non-geeks, I could go into Star Wars mode, but you might know Admiral Ackbar and his one famous line from Return of the Jedi.  Perhaps.

We don't really have mice, so I don't need it for that, but just to have - because hoarding more stuff is good - right?

Actually, we get a mouse or two once per winter. They find their way in from the cold and then Sophie finds them. She's caught and played with them, but never finished them off.

For that, we trap them under a piece of Tupperware and then toss them back outside - injured but alive. ...until the elements get them.

But I'd never use an Admiral brand trap!  I wouldn't mess that up for the life of me - or the mouse.

Let's face it:  it would just be a conversation piece for me and a few select people who either go it or found it funny.

Thanks Dith.

I'm a bad geek...I could only remember "May the force be with us!" and that he looked exactly like my HS Physics teacher.

For the non-geek he said, "It's a TRAP!

It is unsettling, indeed.

As much as I'm no longer a Star Wars fan, I have to admit that's awesome. Maybe Disney will market them.
