Liz Staley, the self-described “Queen of Corny 80’s Cartoons”, was looking for a way to express her beloved nerdiness. While simply pointing folks to her online craft profile stating that she is “a past life pirate” and present life “ninja” who currently is living “in a galaxy far, far away” would have probably been sufficient, she created this great geek necklace instead:

Geek Necklace

Liz crocheted the necklace by hand and then used recycled keys for the messages. She has created a few others as well, such as this one for geek girls:

Nerd Necklace

Or my favorite, the pink “Byte M3” necklace (non-geeks – read the 3 as an E):

Chris vs. Beyonce

I know I promised real words. There will be real words! Next post!

But for now, this makes me laugh way too hard not to share it:

I haven’t checked out any more of this guy’s episodes yet, so I don’t know if I can recommend the whole site, but if they’re all like this…well it’ll either be funny or tiresome.

You Are [something]

Happy Birthday to me!
It’s my birthday (yippee!)
I like to eat cookies,
Happy birthday to me!

Yay! Yep, yep, yep, I’m so old. But I love birthdays, mostly. Time for cake (German chocolate), ice cream (vaaanilla), presents, and cards. I love cards. E-cards and real-life paper cards…it’s nice to get little personal messages (and money!), and even better to get home-made cards. Such cool statements.

But I can’t think of a statement quite like a whole website, right? Perhaps you can think of someone special in your life you’d like to surprise with a website (seemingly) built just to make them feel special?

Just replace “say.no.to.crack.reader” with your first name and last name, or with your friend’s first and last name (for instance, “joe.shmoe”, or “jane.lynn.doe” there’s no limit to the number of names) in the following web addresses, and voila! An instant message of friendship…or enemyship…or pwnedship. Turn up your speakers and prepare to be…something.

You Are My Friend!

You Are Mighty!

You Are Lame! (I don’t actually think you’re lame)

They Will Be Defeated! (this one is written to you, about your enemy)

You Just Got 0WNED!!1

Do You Have Epilepsy Maybe? [warning: do not view if you actually do have epilepsy!]

I know they’re just silly, but I bet they’d brighten up somebody’s day. A fun way of letting a person know you’re thinking about them.

Check out Aninote.com for a few more…including one Ultra-personalized lovey-dovey one.

More invisible stuff!

shhhh

When a whopping 3 out of 6 comments demand…well, request…well…allow…EVEN MORE LOLCATS, who am I to stand in the way of this deafening permission? I don’t think I can! So here you go, even more from the “INVISIBLE _____” LOLcats running gag (out of my personal collection):

oh yeah
kitty gives high five to more lolpics for the price of less lolpics!

boing!

inaudible swishh

One of my all-time favorites:

hugs!

They should form a band:

harmonize this

piaaaanooooo

And, to end this installment of Loltardation:

aw. :(

Invisible!

As astounded and saddened as I was by the stuff on cats ordeal, I have an obsession with lolcat pictures, and my favorite running gag is “Invisible ____!” Invisibility rox!

A few of my favorites:

Or, the bikes:

bike!

Or, the instruments and tools…

Hahah…Oh man. I actually have a great big collection of these on my computer. I’d share them all, but I’m afraid you all would come to hate me. And I would deserve it. What are some of you guys’ favorite running lolgags? I know the “I has a bucket” one Ben posted a while ago has quite a series adding up. But I still love the invisible stuff best.

Friend for sale

Hey, I just thought I’d give a heads up for anybody looking around the market for an imaginary friend at a bargain price:

His name’s Jon Malipieman, and his creator’s just outgrowing him. He sounds very nice though, and I’m pretty fond of his picture:
Jon

Or, if Jon’s a little too expensive but you still want an imaginary friend, Tomily here is available through the 10th. Though, this guy sounds like the jealous type, based on his description, and his picture’s a lot smaller (what’s he trying to hide?)

Can anybody find it in their hearts to provide a good home for these guys? Free shipping! While supplies last!

Towel Origami

If you’ve ever been on a cruise, you’ve probably seen towel origami. The stewards or cleaning crew take a large bath towel and fold it into fun shapes (typically animals), and sometimes accessorize it to look more realistic.

Towel Origami folded pig

On some cruises, towel creations are often a bit rushed and shoddy, but I thought these animals were atypically great.

Towel Origami folded hippo

These have been around for hundreds of years, but Carnival Cruise Lines has been credited for making them popular again (they even sell a how-to book).

What has always amazed me is that they’re all created from a single towel.

Towel Origami Folded Bird

OK, quick … what is the first thing you think of when you see this picture:

Towel Origami Folded Monkey

A Ninja, right? It’s supposed to be a monkey, but I like the idea of cleaning crews toiling away folding up Ninjas a lot better.

If you’re hiking through Italy’s Northern mountains over the next 20 years, don’t be surprised if you run across this 200 foot tall pink bunny:

Pink Bunny

An art group from Vienna designed this massive toy, claiming it was “knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool”. Sounded like complete you-know-what until I saw the bunny for myself via satellite. I’m sure Italy’s taxpayers are proud.

The intent of the project was to make climbers smile and provide them somewhere to lay back and relax:

Pink Bunny Climbers

Interested in climbing on this bunny? First consider:

  1. Who wants to lay on a plush doll that’s been in the rain for 20 years?
  2. How fun is a dead bunny that is a casualty of a skydiving accident? They designed it to look like it had fallen from the sky … complete with an open mouth and organs strewn to the side

I’ll stick to taking pictures from the side. via the Cellar IOTD.

Giant Snail

When I ran across this video today, I thought for sure it was fake:

(if you can’t see the video, click here)

In fact, it’s a Giant African Snail. This beast can grow up to 12 inches long, can climb trees, and is known to steal slow puppies and kittens in the middle of the night (OK, 2 of the 3 are true).

Too bad they’re illegal to own in the U.S.

Ideal Pets

The following pets are very quiet, don’t demand a lot of attention, and won’t damage the furniture. Plus, you won’t have to clean up their little Number Ones and Number Twos, and they even feed themselves!

Cute Spider

“Jabba” strikes a thoughful pose. He likes a good story, especially one with a “Charlotte” in it.

Another cute spider

Look! Barney’s laughing! “Little Miss Muffett” cracks him up every time.

Yet another cute spider

Awww. Lulu is sleepy. Sing her a song, something about a waterspout. She likes that one, and will be fast asleep in no time.

Furthermore, they are completely harmless, unless you fall asleep and they crawl down your throat and into your ear canal via the eustacian tube where they make their way up to your brain to control your every move for the next 48 hours before you die a slow painful death as a zombie, eaten from the inside out. Or not.

How can you not love something as furry, adorable and self-sufficent as these little guys?
