What do we sell? How much time do you have?

What do we sell? How much time do you have?

Sometimes people say, "So you have an online store. What do you sell?" I have a tough time with this question. "Discount Novelties" sounds kind of skeevy. We move a lot of Obama parody money, naked lady tip-and-strip pens, and those retro Family "Who is in the doghouse" plaque sets.…

The old fart mug is tired.

I stopped at a St. Vincent De Paul store yesterday, I am told that St. Vincent is the patron saint of smelly used crap?? Anyway, I scored this hilarious old fart mug for 49 cents! It does not appear to have been used, however I will wash it repeatedly with…
WHY the multiple bottles of stink perfume?

WHY the multiple bottles of stink perfume?

Why the warehouse-store sized orders for stink perfume? I can understand people buying 1 or two bottles of our horrible ┬áStink Perfume to put in the bathroom cabinet, teach a lesson to the snoopers... But why the 6 or 10 bottle orders, often sent to motels? What for? Dare I…
Bite me, Chipmunks; any kid can do that.

Bite me, Chipmunks; any kid can do that.

I always had to have a reel-to-reel tape recorder to monkey with, when I was a kid. These became a little scarce with the advent of cassette tapes, but you could still get the little reels of tape for them at Radio Shack. They were much preferable to cassettes, because…
Purple Dinosaurs must die.

Purple Dinosaurs must die.

This is one of the little nuances that I love at the Bellingham Railway Museum. Although I would rather that Barney got run over by an oncoming train, instead of one that is slowly backing onto a side spur line.

Plumbing and Mushrooms

We ate at an old diner in Renton today, I asked the server, "I thought this used to be something else... Maverick? When did that change?" She must get that a lot because she answered right away, "22 years ago." Way to make me feel old. Having already established that…

Our neighbors, Tarzan and Francis the Talking Mule

I found this old textbook at a yard sale... It's sort of reassuring that previous generations also knew how to annoy the librarians. I think all the entries after Nyla Sperlick and before Fam Ranken are the same kid, a kid who lived in a house with a television I…

Music without Moskowitz? Not quite the same now is it?

It's hard to believe that it's been over five years since Robert Baron, the acerbic and droll host of "Music With Moskowitz" most recently on KSER, passed away. His show featured a unique lineup of "weird and wacky" comedy and novelty songs, such as you ain't never heard, and in…
The Secret Admirer

The Secret Admirer

The Mrs. bought some books at a thrift store a while back, and found a Hallmark card with this typed inside; (Estimated to be from 1975) If you can't read that, it's a Hallmark card that says on the front, "I'm always telling other people how neat I think you…
Cellphone- Stylus? Finger? Carrot?

Cellphone- Stylus? Finger? Carrot?

I have an Android "smart" phone, and although, because my store stocks them, I have a virtually unlimited supply of styluses (stylii?) - I usually use my fat, greasy, callused fingers to navigate the long-suffering expanse of gorilla glass. Why? because I lose them. Even the ones that plug into…
