things for sale: $1

here are some of the handmade things you can get on etsy for $1.

1) House magnet (3.5" x 2") featuring Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House. (dibs)

2) Now this one's a little tricky: it's not yarns, but a SCREENSAVER with photos of yarns with messages typed over them. Yours for $1. The listing says "Picture size 1,8 Mt" so get ready for that to arrive in your inbox.

3) Your choice of depressing, awkwardly phrased animal-rights buttons.

(which slaughterhouse is offering $20 admission is what i want to know.)

4) Plastic beads melted into the shape of a kitten.

5) A hat clip. "You clip one end to your hat and the other to your shirt/jacket and you will not be chasing your hat in the wind. Great for boating, hiking, any activity where there is wind."

and that has been Things You Can Get For $1.

Jurassic Park III: action, dinosaurs, lightweight breathable fabrics

in case you've forgotten how great this movie is, here are some online reviews to refresh your memory:

"I'd give it four out of five stars. I think that it's okay for anyone if they don't mind one or two curse words." -Renee

"What will happen? Who will get off the island alive is the question shooting through everyone's mind right now." -Lynn

"This was one of the best, absolutely best films I've ever seen in my whole entire life!!! Every single part of this movie is fantastic. I had loved dinosaurs since I was a very little kid. I'm not planning to be a paleontologist or something but I think dinosaurs are fascinating since they're animals. And I love all animals!!!" -Timbo

"The only thing that bugged me was the fact that these two girls were sitting in front of me and they kept jumping at like, every time the dinos appeared on the screen. That really got annoying because they kept getting in the way!

Anyways." -Rebecca

pointlessly small tabasco

available at the opposite of costco.

why i love humans, part 1

i went to the farmer's market on friday night and they have this little petting zoo which is just a round fence with some pygmy goats and pot-bellied pigs inside, and people pay $4 to go in and follow the animals around and pet them.

well i'm no sucker so i just kneeled down on the outside of the fence and stuck my fingers through. this little girl came running up to the pig that was waddling towards me -- she wanted to grab it and carry it away. but as soon as she saw me poking my fingers through the fence she stopped and pushed the piggy up against the fence so i could pet it. the pig definitely wanted to walk away but the girl just held it there for a good 30 seconds so i could get a good pet in. it was the most adorable, heartwarming thing i have ever experienced in my 27 years on this planet.

♥ humans.

whatever it's funny

alright i don't want to get in the habit of posting stuff that's not mine on this blog but this sign is in wyoming and so it already gets 10 billion points in my book and also i giggled at it quite a bit so whatever i'm posting it. it's my blog. also one of my favorite things is to replace "of" with "a" and this is a perfect example of why that's such a great choice.
