If we were having coffee, I’d whisk us to Berlin, Germany to Dimension Alley, billed as the first 3-D Printer café.
In D-Alley’s own words, “The café serves traditional English fare: Cornish pasties, pies, scones with Strawberry Jam and Cream, cakes and biscuits. We have tea imported from the UK as well as great Berlin coffee.”
That’s not even the fun part!
The café features a 3-D printer so you can design and manufacture your own coffee cup, or perhaps a superhero with the face of your coffee-mate!
Don’t worry. If Berlin is too far to go for coffee, these printers are coming soon to a coffee shop near you.
Before I go anywhere, I’m scheduling an ear lift.
You heard me.
Some women need face, breast or buttock lifts to enhance their (ahem) natural beauty.
I need an ear lift.
I got new eyeglasses on Monday. I used to have rimless glasses, and this sole defect in my otherwise flawless beauty – my uneven ears – was undetectable. My new glass frames are a stunning blue steel color that enhances my baby blue eyes. Unfortunately because my right ear is lower than my left, the ear pieces rest askew thus the frame cuts across my eyebrows in a decidedly crooked fashion.
(Are there no limits to my narcissism? Don’t answer that!)
I researched ‘crooked ears’ by studying the faces of female tv reporters/opinionators, and discovered that 98.2% of them have crooked ears. Since none wear glasses, I confirmed my theory by observing their dangling earrings. Oddly, while my right ear is lower, 100% of those 98.2% – conservative and liberal yakkers alike – have a lower left ear.
I wager even those of you who don’t watch news/talk tv are going to be sneeking a peek to see this phenomenon!
All kidding aside, if we were having coffee, I’d bring you this nifty gizmo to celebrate our 4th of July Independence Day.
Surely this lightweight, contemporary Leatherman Tread gadget will appeal to both my male and female blogging buddies because it’s – wait for it – a 29-piece tool set AND a snazzy bracelet.
Each of the bracelet links contains micro-tools that perform multiple functions, enhanced by the bracelet itself which, when flattened, becomes a rigid handle to provide torque for … well … whatever torque is used for.
Ignoring that my new glasses don’t correct my eyesight well enough to actually USE this Leatherman Tread, I want one for its charisma. If I’d worn this during my dating years, I might have snagged myself a handyman Hub instead of …
Nah … I’m keeping my beloved handymanless Hub, but if you single ladies are searching for a Handy Hub, you might give some serious thought to wearing this bracelet laced with micro-tool pheromones!
