The sun is out and the sale is up

There are a lot of things wrong in my corner of the world which I cannot fix, today, but it’s sunny and the Amazon Friday Sale is on, and that will have to be enough for now.

It doesn’t have free shipping, but this Combi stroller is still going to be a steal. It’s a nice model if you’re torn between a conventional stroller and a jogger. Or if there are a lot of bugs where you are, and you think you might need to run them over. (Want a more conventional jogger? Check out this one.)

Dude! It’s a yard Roomba! Would that be a Yardba? (The “sale” price still makes my eyeballs bleed, but still, it’s fun to dream.)

My beloved is gunning for this handy gadget as a wedding gift, on account of he is going to promise to love, honor, cherish, and char animals for me. He’s such a romantic.

Does this Dyson make your heart go pitta-pat? You can tell me. I won’t judge.

Sometimes, there are just no words.

Geez, it’s hard enough for most of us to get exercising without calling it the "Enemy" you know.

This is the Cadillac of hair dryers. In case you feel that your hair deserves a luxury car, I guess.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. That bike is somewhat tempting, despite the name. I have this fantasy that if I get myself a bike, I will magically overcome my intense fear of DC traffic, and will cheerfully toodle around the city, emitting no vapors more toxic than coffee breath.

    I noted that the same company sells a cruiser bike called the “Numb.” Numb? As in what will happen to your ass after half an hour of riding? Someone needs their MBA in marketing revoked.

  2. The Yardba is sooooo cool . . . I wonder if it’ll come down to Roomba-like prices some day?

    We are approaching Jetsons territory!

  3. The only reason the Dyson makes my heart pitter-patter is because it appears to be purple! Totally Cool…a PURPLE vacuum! In the land of the purple powercat (Kansas State University), that vacuum would be VERY happy!

  4. Actually, people were dreaming of a roomba for their yard during the woot off last week. It reminded me of the days when the RoboMower would almost kill the woot off in the old days because they would sell soooooo slowly. But you gotta admit, their flat rate $5 shipping was a steal for the item!

  5. How random is it that that smoker can be sold as a set with those floral sheets?

  6. Believe it or not, I’ve actually seen horses wearing a version of those doggie goggles. They were a fine mesh so the horses could see, but they kept the flies out of their eyes.

  7. The yard Roomba? Way cool!

    The doggie sunglasses? Too funny! On a side note, I’ll bet my mom would appreciate a few pairs of those for her “babies”. If her dogs are now her babies, just what does that make me? Although that does explain dinner being served in bowls on the floor of the laundry room! You’ll have to excuse me, I have issues! 🙂

  8. i really REALLY wanted that dyson. alas, they are already gone. i should’ve ordered when i had the chance. *sigh*

  9. My husband and I got the Dyson as a wedding gift, it’s my favorite present that we received. No joke, I actually get excited when our carpet gets a bit trampled so I have a reason to whip the Dyson out.
