Enter your zip code and find out all sort of fascinating things about where you live. 

Who woulda thought that zero percent of us in Valencia would have an occupation in farm/fishing/forestry?  Weird.  Also, where’s my piece of that median income of $76,000?  And finally, the answer to that burning Longitude question: -118.562148.

Wash Your Hands With Momspit?

Posted in Gadgets, With A Twist on Friday November 2, 2007 by andtheivy


“If you don’t have kids, you might have missed this post about Momspit over at Babygadget. It took me a second to figure out why anyone would name a personal cleaning product with the word “spit” in it. Here’s the lovely description: ‘Momspit (inspired by the original) is the universal no-rinse cleanser. It’s not a sanitizer and does not contain any alcohol.’ I’m not sure of the benefit if it doesn’t sanitize (just as good as water?), though I suppose it has to be better than the real thing.

It’s $9 for 2 ounces, or $18 for 7 ounces of this yucky product.”

Something about this makes me want to laugh, cry, and be angry at the same time.   Monkeys are funny that way.

Woe and Tell

Posted in Wicked Funny Pictures on Thursday November 1, 2007 by andtheivy

The below is part of the Get Mortified project in which adults share embarrassing photos, diaries, etc. from their childhoods.  Here are just a couple from the “Woe and Tell” portion of the site.

Oh, and I most definitely plan on submitting my 6th grade school picture.  You know the one.


“This is me in Kindergarten back in 1970-71. When I was a kid, I was convinced I couldn’t smile, so I didn’t.. what possessed me to adopt the ‘evil child’ stare is beyond me.”

Kindergarten of the Damned:


“In third grade I had to get glasses. What better than to copy the most beautiful woman in the world? Mom’s were blue, but I have always liked pink. Also: note the ‘Pixie Cut’ – this is what happens to a curly haired gal with a straight haired mom. 1969.”
