Bic Pastels for Her


From The Worst Things For Sale: "FINALLY! Bic figured out that women can't use something unless it's in a pastel color and says "for HER" on it so they decided to make lilac, coral, pink, and aqua-colored ballpoint pens. Across the world, billions of women stood up and cheered. Now, after all these years, they would finally be able to use a pen."


Set of 16 pens: $11.38.

Friday morning at the movies: "His Girl Friday" starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell (1940)

The perfect Friday movie, what?

We both know you're not going to get anything done today so why pretend?

Take the morning off, chill, and have a few laughs.

Invite some kindred slackers in to watch with you, even more fun.

From archive.org: "A hilarious romantic comedy directed by Howard Hawks and starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Russell is a rough and tumble reporter looking to get out of the news racket by marrying and becoming a housewife after her divorce from newspaper publisher Grant. Just when she is about to leave town with her husband-to-be, the still lovesick Grant drafts her to cover one final breaking news sensation."

Note: "There is a slight audio sync problem in the first few minutes. It's present on the source medium and brief."

Levitating Lamp


Can your lamp do that?

Not you — I know you can do it, I'm talking about your lamp.

Best commercial of 2013 — "Uh-oh..."

When I saw it for the first time during last night's UVA-BC ACC Tournament first round game I thought nothing of it until I heard the splash at the end and turned to the TV in time to hear the little kid say "Uh-oh."

Beyond great.

Even better on repeated viewings.

Who is the genius who thought this up?

Double her/his salary.

It has Flautist's fingerprints all over it but no, there's no way... couldn't be.

Could it?
