Aww, the Cute Little Beavottypus

Yeah, I think I'm taking the wrong message from this whole deal about the discovery of an ancient mammal. It's cool and all, but I just keep looking at the images and thinking, "Awwwww . . ."

As a public service, I thought it was worth linking to this, which helps you find places in your zipcode that carry emergency contraception. Hopefully entirely unnecessary, but useful to know.

Come Play With Us . . .

You put two dead-eyed twins in a hallway and you think someone's not going to think of this? Come on.

Herzog Hates Crackers, Too

This is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. Thanks, Zack.

Prince Charming Not Included

Sweet Jesus and the tap dancing apostles. If you think I'm into princessy shit (like my tiara fetish and such) now, just imagine how much worse I'd be if I had slept in this bed as a child.

Star Wars Valentines: The Precursor to Wookiee Nookie

Happy V-Day (I refuse to call it VD, for obvious reasons), people. Here are some entertaining Star Wars Valentines for you to peruse. So go ahead and peruse.

All the Lonely People

If you are bitter and recently broken up, go buy yourself a voodoo doll toothpick holder. Pretend it's the last person who dumped you. Or otherwise pissed you off.

Or you could drink yourself into a stupor. This set will help you recover in style.

Just because you're alone doesn't mean you have to be deprived. Enjoy yourself with one of these. Highly recommended, I assure you.

And, if you're in the New York area, treat yourself to a gorgeous (and fantastically cheap) massage from Maiyomi Traditions, at 68 White Street. I had one over the weekend and I already want another.

For the Traditionalists

Okay, okay. If you're determined to buy lingerie, go for something cute, 'right? Stay away from the trashy crap like the crotchless panties. Never a good look. That's right. Never.

You could go for this ruffly-ass little bustier and thong.

And yeah, the candy garter, suspender belt, bra, and undies are pretty funny. Personally, I'd keep it--well, I was going to say classy, but I don't suppose that's an applicable term--kitschy as opposed to trashy and stick to just the garter. Maybe the suspender belt. But that's it. And certainly not the banana hammock.

And, based on my personal preferences, I'd have to say that you can't go wrong with ruffled undies such as these, or these, or these. Yeah, the last one is rather unusual, but pretty.

By the way, there's a reason that I haven't suggested any sort of men's underwear in this list: they're never sexy and guys almost never enjoy being given underwear. If you think you've found an awesome pair of boxers or something, go ahead and buy them. Be my guest. You may be right. Most people, however, will be wrong.


Of course, some products make good gifts for both genders. For instance, you could theoretically proclaim your love by entering a message into one of these nifty LED belt buckles.

For all the geeks and geekettes, there are these heartily entertaining t-shirts, available in both women's and men's styles.

Then there are the aptly-named Smittens, which would be a funny (and rather useful) gift for a couple or a parent and child.

Okay, so it might be a bit fruity for the (straight) guys, but these cappuccino stencils are adorable.

If you want to improve someone's taste in music, buy him or her Tegan and Sara's most recent album, So Jealous. (Hey, it has hearts on the album cover. It counts.)

This anatomically correct heart soap is pretty amusing, not to mention a good choice for anyone in med school.

And it's an oldie, but a goodie: The Princess Bride.

For the Man Who Has It All (Especially a Sense of Humor)

What guy wouldn't be totally down with a kick-ass pimp cup?

Gonna Dress You Up in My Love

Back to the V-Day gift list:
For unconventional, non-nauseating attire that involves (a) heart(s), here's a cute jackalope pattycake tote or a tank in the same design.

Sadly, this skirt probably wouldn't look good on me. But it's a cool idea, and would probably look cute on someone with a bit less going on in the hip/thigh area. Love the Much Ado About Nothing quote, though.

This pixel heart puff sleeve tee is awesomely girly, but not cloying. Along the same lines, there's also the pixel heart hoodie.

I love Soundgirl clothes. Check out this hooded tee and this sparkly-ass tee, and this sundress.

Pleo, or What I Want for Christmas

This robotic baby dinosaur is so freaking adorable. I want one. Sadly, it won't be available until Christmas and will cost about $200, so I probably won't get one. But it's just darling.

Nullsleep Will Rock Your World, One Bleep at a Time

Ooh, my boy's getting all famous and shit. Or, um, notorious.


For those who are definitively opposed to Valentine's Day (and the unfortunates who love them), here are some Valentine options. (Thanks, Zack.)

Useful, Yet Cute

I have one of these awesome lipstick thermoses and I love it. It's not only horribly chic, but the angled "lipstick" portion makes pouring easy (and clean).

While I don't feel a burning desire to own a heart-shaped measuring tape, it is kind of adorable. And pretty handy-dandy. I wouldn't say no to one.

To combat cramps and cricks in the neck with love, go for the heart-shaped hot water bottle, a perennial gift option but a good one nonetheless. (And cheap!) Or, for that matter, I suppose you could go with a heart-sweater-wearing hot water bottle, if you prefer. Seems cozier than the first, but not as cute.

Quagmire's License Plate

Just stumbled across this pic of what must be Quagmire's license plate. Aw right!

Ripped from the Headlines (of Questionable Authority)

This morning I noticed a girl in the subway reading a newspaper that trumpeted PARIS' SECRET DIARIES across a picture of Paris Hilton. Personally, I think it's a sham. Or a scam. A shascam, if you will. I don't believe that she has diaries, secret or other. I don't believe she can write--except maybe text messages (txt msgs), which lack all those pesky vowels.

You Have the Right to Remain Sexy

Sorry for the lack of post; yesterday wasn't so hot for me. However, I'm back with a vengeance today.

Sadly, neither you nor I can buy these awesome Law & Order: SVU Valentines, as they're sold out. The tees are sold out, too. But maybe they'll make more(?).
