Earlier this year, I started taking hip hop dance classes. Unfortunately, after every groove, my glasses would slide down my face and I would have to readjust.
I found an account by a doctor who used silicone ear grips to help keep their glasses in place, to reduce the number of times they would need to touch their face. Intrigued, I decided to purchase a pack.
These goofy-looking tips work wonders! They have a surprisingly strong grip strength and allow me to shake my head to my heart’s content.
If you’re one of the few people who choose to wear glasses to dance, I strongly recommend them!
Harry and I aren’t big gift givers so we were surprised when we received gifts from family and friends.
- Custom made puzzles
- Kenya-made treats from my new team
- Dino costume
- Home-baked cookie
They’re delightful! Thanks!
I got some neat stamps from the USPS commemorating the upcoming solar eclipse.
They’re printed with thermal ink!
I’m not a stamp collector, but these are by far the coolest stamps I’ve seen.
I got a new wok recently.
Gonna stir fry all the things!
My Ergodox Ez came today!
It’s my first mechanical keyboard and I love it! I’m especially tickled by the red light when you go into code mode.
It’s open hardware and open firmware, and feels well made in general.
I’ve been meaning to get a mechanical keyboard for ages, and finally pulled the trigger when a friend gotten one.
Check it out if you’re in the market for a mechanical keyboard.
Oh man! The Merecuas sent us some Kale Crusaders stickers! They’re freakin’ awesome!
Gonna be a gem in our sticker collection. 😀
I saw this curiosity in the kitchen the other day. Turns out it’s an orange peeler!
It’s perfect for the oranges mom mailed us (thanks mom ❤ ).
I just tried it, and it works SHOCKINGLY well!
It’s that time of the year where Warby gives us gifts. This year we got sweet branded scarves and foil-wrapped chocolate coins.
Good year everyone!
A little while ago, I donated a couple dollars to Morbid Anatomy‘s Kickstarter. They mailed me a mug as thank you!
It’s a really nice mug.
I haven’t visited the Morbid Anatomy museum yet, but I’m definitely going to soon.
It seems like such a neat place.
My favorite swag from the Grace Hopper Conference are:
- A retro headset from Google
- A duffel bag from Google
- A blue pen that writes red from Allstate. The sides say “Deceptive Pen” and “That’s Mayhem”
A shame I couldn’t get any stickers for our sticker collection, since I saw some really nice ones, but I got too sick to mingle.
Oh wells, next time!
