Shopper's Alert!

Are you sitting at home thinking how truly awesome it would be to find a one-stop shopping place for all the things in life you really should not live without?

You'd love a Snuggie, but your dog's nails need a trimming, a few rhinestones need to be replaced on your jean jacket, you need to increase your closet hanging space, your produce doesn't have the fridge life you'd hoped for, you have bad mojo due to harmful foot toxins, you have a pesky overabundance of nose hair, your lace dickey is so 5 years ago, you're having a hard time eavesdropping on your neighbors at the mailbox, you have no place to hang your bananas, there's no good place locally to buy waterproof granny panties, you'd like to know what your cat is really trying to tell you, and your dryer is full of lint! Look no further, my friend!
















One visit to the fine folks at Harriet Carter and your troubles are over, my friend! You can find all the aforementioned items and SO MUCH MORE!!! You're welcome. Just trying to make all of your lives a bit easier. I'm generous like that.

P. S. - Who in the heck plays backgammon anymore? Wrapped in a Snuggie or otherwise?

Okay, scary stuff. I was planning to call Harriet Carter this afternoon to get the Mighty Mendit. You see, a few years ago, when we moved here, the movers ripped a seat cushion that is attached to the coach. I haven't been able to sew it, but I was thinking Mighty Mendit could help. I will keep you posted on that.

wv flazater A spray product that helps one deal with the results of flatulence when out in public.
I was at the movies, and someone in front of me let one rip. Luckily I had that flazater I ordered from the Harriet Carter catalog with me.

LMAO Ok Katdish & Helen are both nuts :D I love it!

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen is why Hey Look a Chicken will continue to have word verification.

80's style plastic footwear made for pet rocks.

I already own each and everyone one of these items. Big Al bought me a Harriet Carter gift certificate for Christmas!

And we play backgammon every Friday night wrapped in Snuggies.

I so want to get that dog nail file, just so I can totally traumatize my dogs.

(Except that a traumatized 100-lb dog can do a lot of damage... I may have to rethink that.)

As for backgammon, Charlie and I play it EVERY night.




Naked.




...do I need to go sit in the time-out chair?

Wow- and I'll leave it at that...

I was raised in the city by people form the country. I'm talking like the deep country where people were more than a little self reliant.

The end result is that I tend to make stuff instead of buy it and repair it instead of toss it. My most treasured item is my frankenphone. I had two broken phones because I tended to drop them from ladders, which they don't appreciate, in my carpentry days. I was able to get a single working phone from them.

I say all that to say this, if I have the need to buy any of these things I will more than likely engineer them from junk I have. I already employ my dremel to trim my dog's nails. He freaked the first few times which is something considering his overall size. He is pretty chill now once he understands he isn't getting away from me. 200 lbs trumps 75 lbs.

Nick the Geek said...

steph,

you really need to go sit in the time out chair but first please ensure that you are fully dressed because I'm bound to get put in that chair eventually and I don't want to worry about whose naked butt has been in it.

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

Nick, it's not nighttime, silly.

Sherri, can I get out of the chair in time for my evening backgammon game?

Or can somebody find me a towel?

(Now *I'm* putting myself in time out)

Helen said...

Steph, I like your new picture. You look cute.

Nick the Geek said...

the more I look at snuggies the more I think of the Holocaust robe from The Princess Bride. "I am the Dread Pirate Roberts and I have come for your souls." I'm gonna see if I can buy one in black just to do that line over and over again. I need to look up how to make that stuff that will let me burn for a bit without actually hurting myself.

Speaking of that Mandy Pantiken is Inigo Montoya and also Rube in Dead Like Me which is on scifi today.

Word Verification: thampolo
From the makers of the snuggie comes the thampolo. If you've ever wanted a shirt that doubles as a shammy you need the thampolo

Stacey said...

Sometimes I seriously think about buying those nifty clothes hanger things!

Btw, I've needed a flazater on every airplane ride I've ever been on. What is up, people?

(It just occurred to me that maybe it's my husband...)

Candace Jean July 16 said...

I'm particularly lovin' those granny panties. Would they make my butt look fat? Or are they like those sauna pants that shrink your butt all the while doing their job of keeping that Snuggie dry?

katdish said...

Flatulence on airplanes is due to a body's reaction to the increase in elevation. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

katdish said...

Candy,

I think they would only make your butt look fat if you tucked your Snuggie inside of them, then pulled on your Lee relaxed fit, high waisted mom jeans.

Has anyone ever tucked their shirt into their underwear to keep it place? Just wondering...

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

"Has anyone ever tucked their shirt into their underwear to keep it place? Just wondering..."

Um, I thought everyone who grew up in the 80s had done that...

If you're trying to keep your shirt smooth in the one inch between your boobs and the top of your jeans, you need all the help you can get.

katdish said...

Yeah baby!

Beth said...

Okay, I laughed more at this post and the comments than I have in....well I don't know....a long stinkin' time! Steph's comment had me laughing out loud for about 5 minutes. And that picture of the jeans just put me over the edge. I'm gonna need some plastic panties.

Let me state:
1. Yes, I AM wearing my Snuggie right now. I'm sick. It's comforting. I love it.
2. I will NEVER wear jeans like that.
3. If Nick the Geek and my husband ever meet, there might be a rip in the space time continuum which they will immediately fix with something like gum or sand paper.
4. Please don't tell my mother-in-law about Harriet Carter. Please??

sherri said...

For the record...No naked butts in my timeout chair! Bring your own chair, please. Or a can of Lysol.

Nick the Geek said...

Beth,

Everyone knows that holes in the space time continuum are fixed with duct tape. Haven't you ever watched MacGuyver? That is the whole reason they put in on StarGate SG1. They rip great big holes in space time every episode (what do you think a worm hole is?) and he has wicked mad skills with duct tape.

Speaking if wicked mad ... is that the proper way to put that or are those two adjectives meaning I should have typed "wicked, mad" just curious. My grammar book isn't to clear on this point believe it or not.

Marni said...

Beth Moore does her quiet time in her Snuggie. No seriously. It's on her blog, go read it. God must speak so clearly to those in Snuggies is my thought, so I better get one. Kat, can I borrow your catalog?

As for naked backgammon...I'm with you Steph! But we suck at Backgammon, so my hubs and I watch Wheel of Fortune naked each night...

Beth said...

Nick, I was going to say duct tape...but that just seemed too obvious.

Marni! I don't know you very well, but now I know why God has been speaking so clearly lately....must be the snuggie during quiet time!! I'm like Beth Moore! And my name is Beth! Doo doo doo doo.

JML said...

You know what breaks my heart? MY parents get this catalog. :( They have the most random, somebody actually patented this crap things EVER!!!!
