What a day! My hometown (NYC) has taken a beating from Sandy. Thankfully, friends and family have been safe so far.
On a lighter note, I've had a few things on my mind that I wanted to put out there that might make you laugh.
For some reason, when I turned on the TV this morning the Marie Osmond show was on. (I didn't know she had a show). They were featuring a segment called "Wacky Products that Really Work" and I thought I'd share some with you. (Please don't tell your families I gave you these ideas as stocking-stuffers! HAHA). My sarcastic replies free of charge :)
Razor Reach - Shaving Made Easy. Shave Without Bending. Perfect for Pregnancy, Injuries, Arthritis, Post-Surgical Use, Stand Up Showers. Just attach your razor.
Forgive the smile on my face, as I'm sure the idea would be helpful to some people with the above conditions. However, I know that if I were recuperating from surgery, the last thing I'd care about was prickly legs. And, I don't know about you...but OUCH! When I see this picture I remember myself as a young teenager haphazardly shaving the back of my ankles and almost bleeding to death. Maybe this is something that pregnant women would use. I wouldn't know; I haven't been that blessed yet. All I have to say is, I'll cross that road when I get to it. Who knows how sexy I'll feel when pregnant that I'll need to shave my legs?!
On The Cuff - Keeps your arms dry while you wash your face! Developed after years of frustration. "Every time I would wash my face the water would run down my arms, on to the counter top, then the floor and before I knew it water was everywhere." Really? You mean to tell me that it would be too hard to wash your face in the shower? That's where I have my face wash. I'm sorry if that was a little...off the cuff. Just saying.
La Decollete - the Anti-Wrinkle Bra. Because of this special bra, your breasts are more or less forced to stay in place so no vertical wrinkles will occur and your cleavage will stay smooth. Ok, I will say, this seems like a good idea. I have seen quite a few women with deep creases on their sternums...in their 70s! I don't think younger women need to worry about this, especially not at £45!! I say buy a pool floating noodle and cut it to size. Insert before bed.
Bootie Pies - Warm and cozy pedicure boots let you enjoy pedicures in the winter. Before nail polish application, lift the arch of the boot and slip your toes out to rest on the tip of the boot. They only cost $88...but this one is on sale for $58! Right. You're talking to the girl who won't spring the extra $20 for a "spa" pedicure. Maybe this is important for you, but I usually wear my big roomy Uggs after the nail polish is 100% dry. Cost = FREE.
For the rest of the wacky products, see the list at the Hallmark Channel. I know I got a laugh out of these products. I hope you did, too!
Starting next week, I will be listing "Monday Musings" under:
