Another great shirt, available over at Spreadshirt.com:
I absolutely love this shirt, available over at Threadless with artwork by Alan Maia. And yes, I am saving this link because if I don't get this shirt for Christmas I am definitely buying it immediately afterward.

i had kind of a rediculous night tonight. Perhaps the only thing that could have improved it would have been wearing this shirt instead of the generic Hawaiian shirt I had available.
Hey, ladies, summer is upon us! At least it is here in Central Florida where I live -- it is currenly in the 80's and sunny skies. You know what you definitely need to keep those harsh solar rays off of your skin? A parasol with a Kraken on it, available from TheVioletVixen.com for only $28.

It's Pi Day, so I'll make the exception for a cool shirt (available here), but no, the plural of octopus is not octopi.
On the one hand, I definitely need these shorts. On the other hand, there is no way on earth I would pay nearly eighty bucks US plus international shipping to get them. Ah, well.

No matter how many times this talented young woman says, "You can do this", in my heart of hearts I know that she is wrong. I could never make a shirt this cool myself. Maybe one of my super talented artistic friends could do it.

You know what I love best about this costume (aside from it just being the cutest costume ever)? I've been staring at it for a while and I am still not positive which legs are the real ones.
I stumbled across these bedding sets the other day, and honestly can't pick a favorite. I'll show a couple here, but you need to go look at the Ink and Rags etsy store to see the whole collection. Every one is beautiful, and there are at least two dozen. The only possible solution is for me to open a small hotel and decorate each room with a differnet tentacled bedset. And then sleep in a different room every night.
