Ridiculous Things You Can Buy On The Internet

OK that's kind of a long title, sorry.  That's gonna screw up my twitter post when I try to share this....

Anyway, anyone who has spent any amount of time on the internet already knows the internet is full of completely random crap that you can buy, and a lot of it is completely ridiculous, either in price or it's just a ridiculously impractical item.  I'm pretty sure "internet" actually translates too "ridiculous random crap" in some language.

This is a list of completely ridiculous things I've found.  These are either just completely ridiculous in general, like the Hello Kitty wedding dress, or ridiculously EXPENSIVE like the watch.

1.  Hello Kitty EVERYTHING!  From wedding dresses to shot glasses.  I've seen unspeakable things with the Hello Kitty theme, and I've even seen a Hello Kitty gun.  I couldn't find prices for the wedding dress or gun, but the shot glasses were about $20.

 Sooooooo pink.  I love pink

For the kitty loving alcoholic in you!

I am NOT providing a link to this.

2.  I shit you Astronomical watch.  Which is probably THE coolest thing I think I've seen in a very long time.  
Priced at $245,000.00 of course.  Sigh.

I don't think I've ever wanted something I can't have so badly.

3.  Offensive mug because LOL this would be hilarious in an office.  I almost removed this from the list, but it's too hilarious, so it stays. :-)
Priced at $19.95.

No longer satisfied with flipping off your boss from under your desk? Use this! 

4.  Dragon sweater, and I'd say this is the most expensive non-designer hoodie I've ever seen.
Priced at $499.99.
 Actually I think this is the most expensive hoodie I've EVER seen, including designers hoodies's a hoodie!

6.  Some sort of girly monster doll.
Priced at $199.00 new.

 I've always loved weird and unique dolls, but not for that price.

7.  This huge and brightly colored ring.
Priced at $2,399.00. 

This is probably the most pink I've ever seen on a ring at such a huge price.

8.  Artwork on EVERYTHING in your house! 
Prices vary by item, but they range from $18.99 - $189.99.
Shower curtain, blankets, place mats, pillows...they will put art onto ANYTHING and that is really, really cool!

 9.  iPad Air, this is ridiculous for me personally to buy, because I already have an iPad 2.  But it's kind of ridiculous for anyone anyway, these things are SO FREAKING expensive wtf!
Priced at $499.00 - $929.00.

I still want one, though. 

While we're at it let's add iPad mini to that as well, since we're being ridiculous and all.
Priced at $399.00 - $829.00

It's so cute!

10.  Sexy-time candle with supposedly a potentially expensive ring in it.  
Priced at $24.99.

It could have a ring in it worth anywhere from $10 to $5,000, and I love a good gamble!  Also you can get other scents of these candles from this site, I just thought the sexy time one was really weird.

 11.  An arcade game machine!  This is an ebay link, so prices vary WILDLY and I don't feel like listing them.  But I'm pretty sure even a human soul isn't worth that much.

You KNOW that you want this, though. I'm sold if it has Bubble Bobble!

12.   YOU CAN BUY A JETPACK!  Actually I'm not sure you can buy a jetpack itself, but it does look like you can pay some crazy fool to fly around with one for your entertainment. I couldn't find prices for that though.

I'm sure it's probably safe ..... you won't blow up or anything. Probably.
Note: Picture is of Boba Fett from Star Wars, not from the jet pack website.

13.  A Tardis mini-fridge!  This speaks directly to the Dr. Who fans out there, but also the INCREDIBLY lazy people out there who spend a lot of time at their desk.  Like me.  I totally want one of these.
Priced at $79.99.
For when you can't be bothered to get up and WALK to the fridge which is probably just within a few yards of your desk.

14.  Star Trek Into Darkness tunic dress replica!  Dude, I want one.  Wish I was skinny.
Priced at $219.99.
 Nerdgasms were heard across the land the day that site put these up.

15.  You can buy a Hobbit home!  
Priced at $4,695.00.
For kids I think. Pretty sure adults can't fit in there.  Which makes me sad faced.

16.  Hot pink boots of some sort.  These look like hot pink platform space boots. They look ridiculous and are a ridiculous color.  But hey, if you can rock these, I won't judge.  They're probably comfortable, at least.
Priced at $99.99. nothing.

17.  A DOG for 2 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!  This is the Tibetan Mastiff.
But, it's not even like a real's like a dog-lion cross!  I guess it's expensive to breed dogs with lions.  Also sounds really scary for the poor dog.  I hope it was a boy dog and a lioness, not the other way around. Yikes.

18.  Pretty much everything at  Lots of girly jewelry there, because nothing says love like nerd bling!
Did you want an Evenstar pendant like Arwen's?  You can get it at bling for nerds!
Priced at $89.99.
 Honestly?  I've wanted one of these ever since I saw the movies.

Or maybe you're more of a Twilight fan? Here's Bella's engagement ring.
Priced at $160.00.
I'd rather have the moon ring, but that doesn't make the list since it's reasonably priced.

19.  A fucking diamond pacifier.  That's right!  Baby bling!
Priced at $17,000.00.
I wonder what happens if the baby picks off and then swallows any of the diamonds...

20.  A roomba!  But not just any roomba, this one is specific for pets and allergies.  Note that it doesn't say pet hair, it just says pets.  Maybe this is the one for cats to ride around on?
Priced at $699.99.

My Dog Got Stung By a Wasp

MY DOG GOT STUNG BY A WASP!!!!! :-(  :-(  :-(
I can't even capslock and unhappy face that enough.
I was walking my dogs, and the older dog suddenly stopped in her tracks and started biting at her paw, yanked a wasp off of her foot with her teeth, then viciously shook it before spitting it out and continuing on her way.
I was pretty surprised, since I didn't see the damn thing on the sidewalk at all.
After smashing it with my shoe because how DARE the little devil sting my baby!!! I decided to check if the stinger was still on the bug, or if I was going to have to get it out of her foot.  It was still on the bug, so it was definitely a wasp and not a bee.  I was wondering if it had actually stung her or not, but after a few steps she started limping dramatically and kept licking her paw.  Dammit, it definitely got her. :-(
I took her straight inside, and gave her some benedryl, right after her after-walk-treat.

This link and chart might be handy for anyone who may need to give their dog benedryl for any reason.

By this point she's hobbling around the house barely putting weight on that paw, because, as anyone who's been stung by a wasp can attest, wasp stings HURT.  Their venom is just straight painful.  Wasps and scorpions I know, have venom that just causes lots of pain.  Wasp stings are more painful than bee stings, BUT at least allergic reaction to wasps are less common than allergic reactions to bees.

 I felt so bad, look at how sad she is. 

After doing some googling, I found a few websites that said a weak baking soda and water mixture can help take away the pain.  So I put 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a pint glass of water, then put some of it in a bowl.  A lot of the water ended up on the floor.  My Ophelia HATES to have her feet touched and messed with, so holding her foot in a bowl of water, and while she was in so much pain, wasn't something she wanted so she kept jerking her foot around and spilling the water.  I wasn't mad at her, of course.  And getting mad at this dog would only make things worse, since she's a big bag of emotions.  I think I managed to keep her sting in the water for a total of seven minutes, and the response was immediate.

Ouchie! :-(
She was actually able to walk without limping too much, and her foot and leg were no longer trembling as she held it in such a way to keep things from touching it.
The benedryl knocked her out though, she spent a lot of time sleeping off the pain of her sting.  I had to go to work for four hours, but by the time I got home, she wasn't limping at all.  She was licking at it sometimes, but that's it.
Today, she's totally fine, like nothing happened.

All better!

I'm extremely glad that it seems she isn't allergic to wasp stings at all, and she didn't get stung in the mouth when she yanked it off of her paw and shook it.  Aside from some flailing when I put her paw in the water, she's a very good patient. <3

World of Warcraft: New Night Elf Female Model


The Night Elf female update!!!!
I know a LOT of people out there were looking for this one.  I mean, you can't turn around in the alliance cities without running into a fem nelf, usually dressed down to her skivvies and dancing on a mailbox.  Or just dancing anywhere.

 It doesn't look like they changed the shape of her too much, it seems this particular update is mostly in the texture file.  The shape changes to her body are very subtle, not as drastic as the undead female.  Her hands are a bit smaller it looks like, thank goodness.

It looks like she finally went shopping at Tyrande's Secret!  She was definitely in need of an underwear upgrade.

I personally am looking most forward to seeing the blood elf and troll updates!
