A third: you knew that.

Catme 13/Glass Effect 38 — Wonderful musical clocks from Japan

Yesterday at the Mole Hole, a wonderfully offbeat shop on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, with BFF Cary.

He espied some clocks on the wall which turned out to be more than clocks — much more.

They're Rhythm Clocks from Japan.

He liked them so much he bought the second one from the left of the five in the video above.

It doesn't matter whether you're 5, 25, or 55, bubble wrap is absolutely irresistible.

When a package comes in the mail, part of you is always elated to see those big plastic blisters of popping bliss inside.

Unfortunately, as you grow up, more and more formal occasions and — gulp — work often require ties which are no fun at all.

Unless, of course, you chuck those designer silk nooses for these party popping Bubble Wrap Ties.

Fun and formal, Bubble Wrap Ties are every guy's dream.

They're sure to be "POP"ular wherever you go because no one can resist the gravitational pull of bubble wrap.

And, the fact is that their elastic bands mean no wasted time trying to figure out how to tie them.


Pack of two (one red, one blue): $7.95.
