  • Shure E3c Sound Isolating Earphones

    Shure-e3c-sound-isolating-earphones

    Yes, all of us know that iPod headphones are crappy. Several of my friends have solved the problem by buying a pair of these babies, and now all of them are evangelists. One of them read that, when you’re wearing them, you feel as though the music would come out of your mouth if you opened it. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Organic Cocoa Surface Graphic

    Organic-cocoa-surface-graphic

    These adhesive shapes peel off and stick to your walls in whatever pattern you choose. Much easier than spending days covered in wallpaper glue, and a potentially more dramatic result. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, but these cellular ovals are pleasantly versatile. Each package comes with eight 16” or 7” decals. In the photo pictured, they’ve mixed both sizes.

  • Chutes T-shirt

    Chutes-t-shirt

    T-shirt designers agree, conflict is best viewed from afar. Military maneuvers can be so darn pretty from a distance. These lazy parachuters float through distinctly unfriendly skies as a fighter jet awaits.

  • Girl Scout Cookies

    Girl-scout-cookies

    When I moved to a big city, it never occurred to me that I’d be sacrificing my Girl Scout cookies. The wee green ones don’t come to my door or stake out the grocery stores I frequent. My cupboards are cookie-free, and I’m starting to have withdrawal symptoms. The Girl Scouts don’t sell cookies online, but I did find a site where you can download a mail-order form and have Lemon Cremes delivered direct to your door. You have until the end of April to stuff your freezer with Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel deLites before the cookies disappear for another year. Stock up.

  • Confederacy of Dunces

    Confederacy-of-dunces

    John Kennedy Toole committed suicide in 1969 and never saw the publication of his novel. Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious and tragic book that explores the life of decidedly unlikable Ignatius J. Reilly. Excerpts: “Your total ignorance of that which you profess to teach merits the death penalty. I doubt whether you know that St. Cassian of Imola was stabbed to death by his students with their styli…Pray to him, you deluded fool, you ‘anyone for tennis?’ golf-playing, cocktail-quaffing, pseudo-pedant.” “Santa, honey, that’s a sweet little Blessed Virgin you got on top that TV,” Mrs. Reilly said. …Santa said, “Ain’t it nice, though? It’s a little Our Lady of the Television. It’s got a suction cup base so I don’t knock it over when I’m banging around in the kitchen. I bought it by Lenny’s” “Lenny’s got everything,” Mrs. Reilly said. “It looks like it’s made outta nice plastic, too. Don’t break.” “My mentality, uncontrollable and wanton as always, whispered to me a scheme so magnificent and daring that I shrank from the very thought of what I was hearing. “Stop! I cried imploringly my godlike mind. ‘This is madness!’”

  • Retro Bullet Planter

    Retro-bullet-planter

    For years I’ve been covetous of my friend’s 1950s bullet planter, and now I can have a shiny new one all for myself. It’s made of fiberglass and steel, and it beats the heck out of terra cotta. I like it in white with a tall succulent or unusual tropical flowers. Scoot one into that weird bare corner in your apartment, and make yourself a martini.

  • Vacu Vin

    Vacu-vin

    Vacu Vin is a set of rubber stoppers and a mini pump that seals an open bottle of wine and then lets you pump most of the air out. We use ours constantly. Just pop the bottle in your fridge, and it’ll keep for three or four days. Perfect for those who like to have a glass of wine with dinner, but hate to waste a whole bottle. The only drawback is that it elimiates your excuse for drinking the entire bottle.

  • Braun WK200 Electric Water Kettle

    Braun-wk200-electric-water-kettle

    For people who could use a nice, soothing cup of tea, right bloody now. First, consider herbal. Then pick up a Braun Electric Water Kettle. The water comes to a boil in about a minute, and the carafe has no cord attached so it feels like a regular kettle. It turns off automatically when you remove it from the base, so you never have to worry about waking up to a melted mass of plastic. Also, unlike most electric kettles, it’s not ugly. Pick one up and celebrate with an instant-soup dinner party. Thanks Sara!

  • June Taylor Jams

    June-taylor-jams

    Heather can’t stop raving about June Taylor Jams. She mentions them whenever we see each other, and she sent me this note: “June Taylor has a booth on Saturday morning down at the farmers market where you can taste them all… Heaven in a spoon. I have three jars at home that you’re welcome to sample: Apricot, Pluot and Lavender and Rhubarb. All so good you might want to skip the toast and butter.” She’s right. So good, they make your tastebuds hurt.

  • Adjustable Measuring Spoons

    Adjustable-measuring-spoons

    I love to bake, but I do tend to use every bowl, spoon and measuring device in the kitchen. These adjustable measuring spoons come highly recommended by Maggi, a loyal reader. Since they’d cut my cleanup time in half, I’m willing to give them a go. It’s a three-piece set with adjustable teaspoon, tablespoon, and 1/2 cup scoop. Now make me some cookies.
