I caught part of HGTV's I Want That! and hit their website in search of a bottle cap tripod. While I was there, I decided to browse through all 200+ products listed on their site and found a few that looked interesting enough to blog for later reference:
  • Shower Manager, a shower time limiter that reduces the water flow after a preset time (5, 8, or 11 minutes).

  • self-watering stacking planters (this induced immediate lust in me, especially since the self-watering pot the peppers are in makes it *so* much easier to care for that I'd like them for all the trees, the hibiscus and the grapes)

  • NoginSox bicycle/sports helmet covers

  • Nature Mill, a home composter that uses electricity for easy hot composting

  • Critter Cord cord covers to deter pet chewing

And some other things I had filed away to look at later:

Also, how come I haven't heard of the Anthropologie catalog before? I could never afford anything from it, but those dresses are delicious to look at. I almost peed myself when I saw the emerald dress comes in my size. If I had a million dollars, that would be my green dress. </obligatory BNL joke>

But not a real green dress, that's cruel.

It was very hard not to include that in my original post.

Gordon is my favorite BNL album.

It's got an awful cover, though.

I have so little music on CD anymore that ugly covers barely register on my radar.

Besides, the last physical CD I bought was stolen out of Vogon's car, so I only have the case and my digital backup copy anyway.

I don't know, that looks like a real green dress to me.

I totally want that glowring thing. There's so much cool stuff in your links.

It'd be a step up from the generic version I usually buy.

I'm obsessed with Anthropologie - there's a store a little over an hour away from us. The day I hit their lowest size (a 14), I'm buying one - I figure with all the last-year-of-law-school social events, it'll be money well spent. I'm in a 16-18 now, so the day when I can buy that damned thing will soon be here!

Are there any other girlie stores you'd recommend that I check out?

(And I totally want to see a photo of you in the dress you buy from there. Laurel is still jealous that you and Lola have matching track jackets.)

You didn't know about Anthropologie? I'm so sorry. It's only my favorite store in the whole world. They might have one near you. We have one in San Francisco and one in Berkeley.

I am generally ignorant of most feminine stores. Growing up, my exposure to feminine things like makeup application was limited to Girl Scout activities and summer camp. I didn't learn how to put on makeup until I was in college.

Iif I posted about how I shop for clothing, I'd fear that people would get together and call out some kind of fashion hit on me. I've been wearing too-big jeans since Christmas because the Eddie Bauer outlet stopped carrying pants in my size and I don't have a clue where to find straight-leg, normal rise, non-stretch jeans in my size now. I'm thinking about giving up and going back to men's jeans.

Really? Don't you have sisters? There's nothing wrong with not knowing how to put on makeup, etc., but it seems uncommon.

What size are you? Even stores like Gap, Banana Republic, etc. (I don't know what other stores you have in the Dallas area) sell size 0 jeans.

My older sister learned how to apply makeup from her friends, but we aren't very close to one another. Mom's family is almost entirely non-makeup wearing and the time I watched my paternal grandma separate her eyelashes with an open safety pin scared the bejeebers out of me.

I think I'm a size 2. That's what size jeans I used to have from Eddie Bauer, but I'm confused by women's sizes after trying on jeans last summer at Kohl's. Vogon picked out pairs four or five different sizes for me and they all seemed to fit about the same, except for one pair that was stretch. I do not like stretch denim.

Are you serious? That's terrifying!

You're such a peanut. Women's sizes are confusing. "Vanity sizing" makes shopping for pants difficult. It seems like all brands have different sizing. As far as I know, men's sizing for pants is much more standardized. You should be able to find size 2 pants pretty much everywhere.

I meant to thank you for posting these links. Since we're trying to furnish the new house, I've sort of been in design mode. How to make the house better, etc.
