Internet Must (not) Haves

Today, I was shopping for a birthday present for my sister in law on Amazon.  While searching, I found possibly the most awesomely creepy book in existence:  


Trying to be a Cat Lady but you were kind of borderline in your commitment?  Fear not, once you start constructing mini finger puppets out of your cat's hair, you can feel safe in your commitment to true Cat Lady-dom.

After laughing about this book for about 2 hours and sharing it on my facebook, I decided to look for other weird stuff online.  Fortunately it's Justin Bieber's 18th birthday so that provided plenty of material.


Not only does Justin appear to have a case of looking perpetually 12 years old (see also, Leonardo DiCaprio), he appears to be wearing a coat made out of the Cookie Monster's fur.  Also, I'd like to comment on the number of social media links in the post below.  Facebook, Google+, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, Digg, Reddit....jeez!   On the plus side, all these social media links are very good for people with multiple personalities or that have trouble being too productive.

After scouring the celebrity sites, I decided to do some shopping.


Have you ever felt like your pizza cutter didn't reflect your sci-fi interest enough?  Do you feel like you've never found a cutter that allows you to truly express yourself?

For those of you who want to take your pizza cutting to the next level, I present to you the Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Cutter:

Frankly, I'm not sure why all pizza cutters don't look like the Enterprise.  That round blade is just perfect for it.  What really perplexes me is the $30 dollar price tag.  Clearly this bad boy is worth far more than that.

Anyone up for a pizza party?    You bring the pizza, I'll bring the appliances.


(PS:  Sorry for another non-running post.  I'm running a lot still.  I am supposed to run 10 miles at goal marathon pace tomorrow.  It will probably be painful at the time but rewarding afterwards.  Happy Friday!)


  1. Justin Bieber looks just as young as most of the college freshmen I work with. The rare ones are the ones who actually look like an adult and can grow facial hair.

    Every year they look younger, but I think that's just what happens when they're always 18 and you're 30+.

    1. This is true. I'm always struck how 14 year olds look like little kids to me now even though when I was that age, I thought I was pretty much ancient.

  2. What gems you've found...

    Uuhm $30 for a pizza cutter, no thanks, that's ridiculous!

    1. I know! It had better be made of gold. Or clif bars.

  3. Crafting with cat hair? That is disturbing. lol

  4. ba ha ha! Seriously what is this world comming to? I want to invent something completely stupid and make millions of dollars. I will now spend the remainder of my day trying to figure out my life changing invention. I'll get back to you with it.

  5. That pizza cutter is fucking money. I'm off to find my Star Trek encyclopedia (ca. 1995) now.

  6. Bummer! Original ship? I would have totally purchased that Star Trek pizza cutter if it was the TNG ship. Foiled again!

  7. I love non-running posts! ummm, thx for letting me know you now have a real website, so I can view it all the time, since places like work like to block blogspot. what if I wanted to read blogs about how to find oil? have you seen the book about cats with wigs? my bro has it. It is super hilarious!
