(1) iRobot Roomba Scheduler 4290 with Intellibin for Pets
Description: (click show to see it)
Dear Brian & Sarah -
You've probably noticed by now
that I've run away. I may only be a dog, but I could see where things
were headed around here. I decided to make it easy on all of us and
Please, don't try to pretend nothing's changed.
Ever since the iRobot Roomba 4290 came into our lives, I've been
getting less and less attention. Fewer tummy rubs. Less frequent
treats. Have you even noticed that my rubber-newspaper chew toy has
been lodged between the stove and the cabinet for weeks now? Have you
even heard me whimpering for it?
Forget it. I'm not trying
to make you feel bad. I'm way past that now. I mean, how could I blame
you for choosing the iRobot Roomba 4290 over me? I make messes - it
cleans them up. You have to get up in the morning and let me out, but
all you have to do for the Roomba is program its scheduler. I see the
way you've been fawning over it, telling all your friends about it,
knitting that little sweater for it. I get it. You've found a new best
Funny thing is, you picked the 4290 with me in mind.
Remember what you told me when you brought it home? Remember the
promises you made? "Look, boy, it's specially designed to pick up pet
hair effectively," you cooed. "The Intellibin tells us when it's full.
It's got bump sensors so it won't run your paws over. And if you flip
it over, it'll shut off automatically, so you won't hurt your little
nose sniffing at its moving parts." You didn't think I understood.
Well, I understood every word. I went along with your dream, the dream
of the four of us together always. What a fool I was.
I'll find a home somewhere. Please don't try to find me. It's better
this way. All I ask is, the next time you're emptying the Intellibin
and you find a wisp of golden-brown fur with a touch of grey, remember
that little puppy who used to bark at his reflection in the sliding
doors. He wasn't such a bad little mutt, was he?
Your old best friend,

a fine wine or a really long Family Guy episode, this shirt is full of
charms both subtle and complex. Who forked the moon? Is that snake with
the Scotsman? Why did the cupcake become a showgirl and not finish her
law degree like the Bloody Mary? Why are there so many bottles? These
are answers we leave to you.
This shirt was designed by: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/danrule/sets/72157594198185039/">Dan Rule</a>, BFA,
MFA, and born in Belleville, Illinois in 1977. He got into computer
illustration while working for a printshop, because it was better than
making ostrichburgers. Since then he has been exhibiting his drawings
and prints in galleries throughout the United States as well as in
Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom, and designing shirts for
Threadless, Stagr, UNIQLO of Japan, and Design By Humans.
Wear this shirt:
when you want a bunch of strangers staring at your chest like it was
some kind of scavenger hunt. Hey, that broccoli could be the apple's
Don't wear this shirt: if you're
the sort of person who only ever sees the "big picture". When it comes
to this shirt, the trees are far more interesting than the forest.
This shirt tells the world: "The curly straw is the most superior of all straws."

Ah, the rare and exquisite quadruple helix! Four bottles! Three
wines! Together, they can unlock some of the most intriguing riddles
that face humankind. Riddles like: Hey, how's that '05 Cabernet
Alright, maybe that's not so much a
riddle as just a question. Regardless, this wine.woot
three-pack-plus-one is just what you'll need to discover the answer.
a hint: With its subtle whiffs of vanilla and sprinkles of oak spice,
the Cab-Sav is a woot launch wine to get you singing "get out of the
bottle and onto my palate." You know, to the tune of Billy Ocean's '88
monster hit about abducting people into his car. No one in earshot will
appreciate this performance, by the way. They'll ask you to be quiet.
You'll wish you could oblige. But you'll be totally bewitched by the
Cabernet. It will be terribly embarrassing, but still you'll sing on,
like a songbird ensorceled. "Who, me? Yes, you! Get onto my palate!
Whoooooaaaa..." You have been warned.
Next up: The 2004 Helix Pomatia, a bombshell in two bottles. Wine Spectator
calls it a 90-pointer, but you'll just call it one sweet foxy mother of
a wine. It's got a backbone of toasted cedar supporting hearty cherry
marmalade flavors. It's got intensely flirtatious flavors of
worcestershire and soy sauce. In fact, "saucy" might just be the word.
This is a voluptuous wine you probably shouldn't get caught alone with.
Finally, this fab foursome is rounded out with a bottle of
2004 Helix Merlot. That's right, Merlot. But this is no "spaghetti
wine." This potent Washington State native will kick you down the
stairs if you quote Sideways at it. Spiraling about its core
of dried plum, dark cherry, and raspberry flavors is a wispy
flavor-wraith of sweet vanilla, dark chocolate and java. Do you detect
a dusting of Northwest cedar spice? Sho 'nuff you do. Born of the
Bacchus, Stillwater, Stone Tree and Andrews vineyards, it's rich and
powerful enough that it doesn't even return Cheney's calls. It's all:
"screw that guy; birdshot ruins my pairing with quail."
