Alcohol. It’s not just for cocktail glasses anymore….

.

I’ve always loved dinosaurs. As a child my favorite place in the whole world was under the skeleton of a T Rex at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. So imagine my delight when I discovered these…

.

.

So what, you say? Gummy dinosaurs are no big deal… tis true.

.

.

But winosaurs? That’s booze, candy and dinosaurs all in one place! A little slice of heaven right there.

.

.

And booze filled Hallmarks?

.

.

I’m also very down with those.

.

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Still here. Still laughing… even when it’s not so funny anymore.

.

.

Seriously, you’ve had a year to figure it out. WTH?

.

.

Call me crazy, but I still think that’s a good thing.

.

.

Yes, hang on to your Charmin…. toilet paper shortages could be just around the corner again.

.

.

I think I still have 45 rolls from the first Oh no, I’ll never be able to wipe my butt again! apocalypse…. so I’m good. The rest of you? Good luck.

.

.

It looks like home schooling is winding down now with kids going back to the classroom…. but something tells me mommy’s sippy cup might still have a bit of the grape left in it.

.

.

True that.

.

Sign me up.

.

If we’re ever able to travel freely again? This might have to make my bucket list of go to now or die.

.

.

What! I can sip the nectar of the Gods with one of their most glaring screw ups?

.

.

I totally need to go.

.

.

My most ardent hope is that they have a wombat. You know those guys let loose after a beer or two.

.

.

I’m not sure standing in a pool with otters in a crate technically qualifies as swimming with an otter… but there may be wombats so I’ll over look the misleading description.

.

.

There we go. The main attraction…. Chardonnay with sloths. These creatures move so slowly in the wild mold actually has time to grow on their fur.

If that’s not the very definition of my spirit animal, I don’t know what is.

.

Catapalooza.

.

The crazy cat lady Facebook algorithm is in full swing.

.

.

Does my furniture require cat feet stockings?

.

.

It most definitely does not.

.

.

That goes the same for my feet….

.

.

And my lips.

.

.

Cat ear beret? Okay, I admit I could almost see myself wearing that.

.

.

Is it me, or does this cat look like he’s plotting his owner’s slow and painful dismemberment?

.

.

Unisex? On what planet….

.

.

But there.

At least they got something right.

.

Products for a pandemic lockdown.

.

The first one supposedly has merit in the fact that you won’t have to touch strange doors.

.

.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on your point of view) it also looks like a kinky sex toy.

Next is an electric wine aerator.

.

.

Because Covid has us all at the end of our ropes and we don’t have enough patience left to let our reds breathe on their own.

.

.

A wobble cushion to activate my core?

Just, no.

Isn’t that what husbands are for?

.

.

Frozen shot glasses. Now we’re talking.

.

.

I don’t bore easily and can’t see the need for one of these…. but our friends had one at their lakefront camp last year and said it was a riot.

Ya know, if frying insect life to a crisp is your thing.

.

More notebooks we all need.

.

In case you’re still searching for stocking stuffers.

.

.

Does that come in extra large?

.

.

That one will fill up quickly.

.

.

Admit it, you’ve had a few of those yourself.

.

.

Sad, but true for a lot of people.

.

.

“…. because I spend too much time blogging”.

Is there a notebook for that?

.

.

I’m going to require an extra large one of those as well.

.

.

My husband mistakenly touched my vinyl album collection last week. It’s large, and alphabetized.

Need I say more?

.

Gifts for the booze hounds in your life.

.

Christmas is right around the corner and you need a gift for that certain tipsy someone. Allow me to put forth a few suggestions…

.

.

40 bottles should satisfy even the most hardcore wino on your list.

.

.

Wine on the go? It’s definitely an upgrade from that brown paper bagged Manischewitz and Boones Farm you drank as a teenager.

.

.

Because who among us hasn’t lost a perfectly good glass of the grape in the grass?

.

.

Sipping while dipping?

Sign me up.

.

.

I’ve actually tried these, they’re brilliant.

.

.

I’m so down with this. A carry on margarita is a beautiful thing.

.

.

This looks like an intriguing way to chill your beer.

And they can double as drum sticks when Back in Black comes on the radio. A win win.

.

Notebooks we all need.

.

Just in time for Christmas … I bring you the perfect stocking stuffers.

.

.

That one’s bound to fill up in no time.

.

.

I am so buying this for my husband.

.

.

Who in their right mind would want written proof of that?

Pass.

.

.

I may need 3 or 4 of these.

.

.

If you have an extra world take over plan kicking around, feel free to share. Mine are usually hatched after a pitcher of margaritas and tend to be less strategically sound when read sober.

.

.

No comment.

Hard pass.

.

.

Reason? When have I ever needed one of those…
