Water, Water Everywhere...

Mission accomplished -- this commercial for Evian will probably get me to buy a bottle next time I have the choice.

Late to the Party

New-to-me web comic, Diesel Sweeties is pretty funny. Now you know. (P.S., be sure to start at the beginning and read the last 5 years worth.)

I like this T-shirt from Don't you? I think it's $24, but I'm in back-muscle-spasm agony right now, so I'm not gonna go check.

While You're Up?*

Here's a FridgeMagnetBottleOpener that we here at Doublejack, Inc. would like to have, as it would complement our collection of Coca-Cola bottles from around the world. (Yes, really.)

They're only available in the UK from Suck UK for £15.00 each. ("But I want one now!") Oh well, whatever.

*Where I come from, "While you're up?" means "Yo, you're standing and I'm too lazy to move -- go get me a beer."

Get 'em!

Psst! Get 'em while you can -- before I get a Cease and Desist letter. $29 for this hoodie, but see the other options, too. I do take requests, so if there's something else you'd like, let me know.

I've been needing a watch. And as a motorcycle rider, something with a big face and a band that could go over my jacket sleeve would be ideal. So I'm thinking of actually getting this PXR-5 watch for only $75.

Confession: Most of my furniture is secondhand. Some of it I even found on the street. I let my cat claw my well-worn leather chairs because I only paid $100 for the set, and someday (I hope!) I'll be able to afford better. So I'm rarely tempted by a new item of furniture unless it's under $100.

But this Skram "Version 4 Armchair", I'd probably try to scrape together at least $500 for. And it's not even all that practical -- I just love the way it looks.

Too bad it's $5,000!!! Bastards!

O.k., being noticed has kicked my guilt motivation into high gear, so let me see if I can make up for such a long hiatus from posting. I just got this notice today, and even though it's pretty short notice for putting an entry together, you probably have time to cancel that baby shower or bar mitzvah and attend the amazing, the stupendous, the absolutely outrageously fun Power Tool Drag Races

Some quick details from the organizers:



Noon until we are done

(If you don't know, contact the organizers for directions.)
San Francisco

OH MY &$%# G-D, It's the Power Tool Drag Races!

See Massive Milwaukees versus Devastating DeWalts! Porter Cable Drag
Chutes on Sawzall chassis! Hardcore Black and Decker big-block action
and inspired fits of Makita re-engineering! Junkyard hot dogs and
cotton candy for the kids. Vodka sno-cones and OSHA-horrifying
conditions in the pits for the kids over 18!

Who Knew?

Well, well, well...seems all I had to do to get somone else to credit my blog for a find was to get too busy to update it for, oh, a month or so. One of my own daily stops on the blog circuit is EverythingAndNothing, and today I notice she picked up my scoop on the soap leaves, below -- and credited good ol' Doublejack in the process. Thanks!

So what does that have to do with the T-shirt pictured above? Well, one of my favorite things about EverythingAndNothing is her shirt-of-the-day feature. But while I've been tempted a few times, I haven't yet taken the plunge. One blogger shirt (B-shirt?) I did purchase, though, was this one from One Digital Life. I like the shirt a lot -- and the blog, too.
