We survived the first week

Hey, it’s Friday! This is a particularly exciting Friday here at Casa Mir, because my children have lived through their entire first week of school in a new state. Also, it happens to be my birthday.

But most importantly, it’s time for the Amazon Friday Sale. And they actually have a ton of great deals this week. Woo!

Ohhhhh, very evil of Amazon, putting this sexy Canon camcorder right on the front page. Great reviews and half price? Awesome. (And no, not in my budget. But I can dream.)

This Philips digital picture frame is still $120, but if you’re looking for the Cadillac of the digital frames, this is it.

I am entranced by this chopper scooter thing. (Read the reviews; it’s basically a glorified scooter, but still.) It goes VROOM VROOM when you twist the handle, people. That’s pretty cool.

Now I’ve seen it all. At least, I’ve seen this heated toilet seat and I feel dirty, somehow.

For all you tree-huggers from yesterday’s post: The ultimate clothesline contraption.

Don’t just buy kitty litter… buy world’s best cat litter. (How is that measured, exactly? Wait. I don’t want to know.)

Holy crow this is a good deal: 600 thread count sheets for $39.99, even for king-size. I have the 400 TC Pike Street sheets and love them; these might be even better.

All this Jeep bike needs is a basket and a bell. And maybe some handlebar streamers. (What?) Oh, they have one for men, too.

The perfect gift for your favorite geek: SwissMemory!

The perfect gift for your favorite jock: Football cooker!

Mmmmm… steel-cut oatmeal. Hey, it’s going to get cold again eventually; you may as well get your oatmeal for over half off now.

And last but not least: Everybody rhumba!

  8. I’m having comment problems!! wAAAH!

    Happy Birthday.

  9. Have a happy and pretty birthday, Mir!

    My gran had one of those clothesline thingers. So cool, so retro. I’d be tempted to get one if my backyard wasn’t so steeply sloped (and heavily mined with rottweiler leavings), but instead I’ll stick with my foldable, portable rack.

    Also, I think you should change the last line of the entry to “everybody Roomba!” The thought is making me giggle. Or maybe it’s the coffee.

  10. Happy Birthday, oh Pretty One! You look amazing! Have a wonderful year!

  11. Happy Birthday to you

  13. I like the “compost keeper” that you can buy (for a deal!) with the clothesline. Heck, an old ice cream bucket works for me.

  14. When I first read it, I thought you were pointing your pretty readers to “clothesline contraception”. I guess we know what I’ve got on the brain!

  15. Happy Birthday, Mir! Thanks for all the great work!

  16. Happy Birthday!!!!

  17. Happy birthday!

  18. Happy Birthday Pretty Mir! Thanks for the sheets!

  19. HAppy Birthday! And I seriously hope they don’t sell used heated toilet seats…*snicker*

  20. Happy Birthday! Hope you are having a terrific day and thanks, as always for all you do here to give us such great tips!

  21. Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!
