I get those "extra perks" with my plain old plastic card. Anyone who buys this is either super rich and looking for a novelty gift for a coffee lover, or a sucker.
I vote "sucker".

You canít walk into your corner Starbucks and pick up one of these babies, though. You need to buy them at the luxury gift website Gilt. They arenít even for sale yet. The sale will start in two days.
The steel card will give holders a few extra perks like a free drink on their birthday and a free food or drink item after 12 Stars..."

I thought you got suckered into believing something that wasn't true. Should have known better.

He does mimic their movements to a small degree sometimes, and that cracks me upt he most.

A regular Starbucks card does that. I get free drinks all the time. In fact I have one waiting on me now. I also get a freebie on my birthday. The difference? I got my card for $5.00, which bought me $5 worth of stuff. <shrug> Oh and it's gold and has my name on it.

I taught Chris' friend Jenni's one year old to head bang. He tries to do the thing with his fingers (it's soooooo adorable) but usually just puts his hands on top of mine and lets me do it. I was bored waiting for her to finish trying on clothes at the store one night so Sabby and I walked around (I walked, he rode) listening to the muzak and did the head banger thing.

Good luck moving! Tell us about the new space!

So far I miss a garage and a dishwasher. I don't think I'll ever get over missing those.

But I love my space, I haven't seen either neighbor since I moved in, I'm a 15 minute drive to and from work (I woke up at 7;17 this morning (overslept), and I was at work by 7:50), the cats LOVE this place (mia loves the radiators, Rose loves galloping down the 23' long hallway. TGhey're thriving. This was a good move.

I would like for a TV commercial to include a rickroll. It's time to see this in regular, everyday visual media.

Ugh. Why can't it be FRIDAY yet?

Apparently the New Big Toy this Christmas is Crayola's airbrush kit that uses markers you already own, including fabric markers and washable markers. It was $35 online, then as it got more popular, retailers have raised the price to $55. It's sold out virtually everywhere, including the internet.

I found three at Michael's (arts and crafts store) yesterday for only $28 each (on sale!). I bought one for Nick (he wants to give one to his 5yo for Christmas), and one for a coworker who wanted one for her grandkid. I feel like I should have bought the other one and donated it to Toys for Tots.

Speakign of which, our local rock station sponsors "Toys for Ta Tas" each year. A Toys for Tots drive at an upscale strip club in Minneapolis. I hear they collect TONS of toys. I think it's pretty awesome.

I went on a toy benefit ride this weekend for a Mills Home (it's an orphanage). There were about 4000 bikes. We had motorcycle police escort and the police and fire departments shut down every on ramp to the highway and every intersection. It was about a 30 minute ride to the children's home, where they sang some songs for us.

There were probably a couple thousand of folks all along the way watching the bikes, waving, and some were holding signs saying god bless you.

It was great, and so well organized. I also liked that we got to go to the children's home and see the kids.
