Just in Time for the Holidays....The Sky Mall

Just in case some of you are starting to have that pre-holiday panic about what to buy your loved ones this year...I have some suggestions for you.

Now, this is what happens when you are sitting on a plane in the middle of the night, knowing that you don't have the attention span for a book.

That's right.

Sky Mall.

So here you go, my friends.  Just a few things to get you thinking about what the people in your life might like.  (It might also make you glad that you are not on my shopping list for the holidays.)


For those of you who have had the life-long dream of talking with your elbows, allow me to present to you...

...The Frog Hoody.  Now, he's looking pretty proud in this picture and I'm starting to wonder how much Lithium she had to take before she put that on and started flapping her elbows. each their own.  (Just an FYI...these also come in Triceratops, Meerkat, Bear, Gecko, Dragon, and T-Rex.  I just didn't want you to not get it because your sister isn't a "frog" kind of person.)

Now, because I've noticed lately that it's just plain TACKY when my dog drinks out of the regular toilet...I have decided that this might be the answer:

It just drives me nuts when I hear her lapping it up in the bathroom.  I would much rather this be on the mat that I have for her in the kitchen.


You have no idea how much I wish I had had this while the kids were getting toilet trained:

Yup.  The Grim Reaper Bath Tissue Tyrant.  Because nothing says "you better wipe thoroughly" like a decomposing toilet paper holder.


So I was cleaning my cat's litter box the other day and it suddenly occurred to me:  "WHY don't I have a plant on top of this????"  You can imagine how relieved I was when I came across...

The Hidden Litter Box.  Now I don't have to worry about my cat's unsightly litter box!  No one will ever see it under the fake ficus tree planted on top.  GENIUS!


And finally (and golly...I hope my mom's not going to read this because it will really spoil the surprise I have for her)....

The Bigfoot Garden Yeti Statue (is that redundant?  Any Yeti experts out there?).  This statue comes in several sizes and really says "welcome" to any home.  As it says in the Sky Mall catalog:  "...our more than two-foot-tall Garden Yeti Statue will have guests doing a double-take as they admire your creative decor style!"



  1. I think these look more like something from Spencers or something....gross toilet stuff,but I have issues with toilets!!!! Hope the retreat was good, I see the picture of that porch and wish I had been able to go...maybe next time.

  2. On my last flight I too was attracted to the Bigfoot Garden Yeti, unfortunately, it was too short.

  3. Oh Richard. That IS disappointing! I know how hard it is to find a good Yeti.
