Labor Day is over and I’ve put away all my white clothes. Not really. Come to think of it, I don’t own that many. Something to do with being a messy eater. Still, I am glad, grateful, and thrilled beyond words that August is over.
Call me contrary (ha!), but for me the time of year that is most about renewal is not the Spring, but the Fall. Perhaps I’m excited more by new pencil boxes than buds on leaves. Whether you agree or not, here are three things that cried out to be shared with you.
- Fish Litter Box: I don’t have a cat, but I did and I can tell you that the A#1 complaint I had was the litter box. All that lovely gravel, soon bestudded with lumps of pee and pooh. Unless you make the scooper rounds regularly, said lumps (and those that join them) are sweetly presented for your viewing and olfactory pleasure. It’s especially pleasing when you share your own bathroom with the litter box. When I saw this, however, I was almost tempted to get a cat just so I could have one:Yes, that it a litter box. IOVO Designs has created the Litterfish, which functions exactly like a regular litter box, except it offers an element of irony to your decor that makes scooping poop less unpleasant. The Litterfish can be pre-ordered from IOVO Designs for $159.
- Did you see the follow up to my post about comfortable shoes on MidLife-Beauty last week? I’m trying to get used to the idea that my days of expressing my personality and fashion sense via my feet may be drawing to a close. To that end, I asked, What’s An Old Lady Shoe, and I answered: it’s in the eye of the beholder.
- Finally, I know it’s hard to believe, but there are some of us who are political junkies. And we have Twitter accounts and they’re linked to Facebook. And we use them. Frequently. Constantly. Too Often. If that last is your plaint, here’s how to block all the political stuff on Facebook. Jason Perlow, Senior Technology Editor at ZDNet, has come up with a way to, as he puts it, “tune out your politically sanctimonious friends on FaceBook.” (With thanks to SueBob, who knows just how ironic this tip from me is.)
