Sunglasses, a glasses case, smarties, adhesive heat pads and deodorant.
Nope. Chocolate in coloured sugar shells.
In Canada these are called Rockets.
This doohickey. Extra points if you know what it's for.
Illegal in 44 states and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, but available at most hardware and convenience stores in Salt Lake city proper, but not the greater metro area...
Looks like a weight for a scale?
I thought a pressure valve.
For picking up something (magnetic?) and the top thingy taps it to make it fall off?
Music festival tickets! Happy birthday to me~
looks like some kind of button to make electrical contact, and with the background I will go for a bell-push on a chess timer?
I like your thinking, but that's actually my butcher block. And the dealio is an egg topper.
Looks like a pretty expensive telegraph key. It's for sending Morse code.
After years - nay decades - of using shower gel every day for bathing, I've suddenly reverted back to using old fashioned bar soap and I've discovered that I love it. The smell leaves your skin feeling incredibly clean.
I'm using an Indian organic herby brand called Vaadi, with something called neem in it. Made me wonder why I ever bothered with shower gel, and all those never-ending bubbles. Marketing I suppose.
I also found a perfect scrubby sisal sponge thing that is really nice. And I got a sack of epsom salts today, so I'm all set up for home spa night.
I like your butcher's block...
Never heard of an egg topper, my first thought was does the world really need one of these... but my second thought was that I do poach a fair few eggs and always crack them into a cup - extra washing up (or risk eggy espresso) - does it work?
Brought Grandma a bunch of fruit: Mangoes, three yellow and three purple dragon fruit (which tastes like nothing....), two bags of oranges, some black plums, pears and peaches. She loves fruit, but its mostly a traditional thing, with the brightly colored fruits being like gold, bringing well wishes and such.
Also got her a new Wok, since her old one seems nearly as old as she.
Fitbit Charge 3. While I'm not jazzed about sharing my info with big brother, I do appreciate the statistics generated by the product. Helps me to keep focused on my end goals. Move more, drink more (water), and hit some step goals for the day. My last fitbit I drowned, when I was pretending to be a mermaid at a place called Cascade Falls. https://www.vancouvertrails.com/trails/cascade-falls/ Note to self, and all others. Not a mermaid.
Dunno for sure, but oftentimes geriatric cookware is far superior to anything made more recently.
Don't be offended if she uses it to keep her house keys
A song with a deep personal meaning for me and a titular resemblance to your post:
Thanks to recent news from my friend, I actually expect her to do something odd with it. Friend (her grandson) told me about 10 minutes ago that he brought her a new one last year. Its sitting in her room with a plant growing out of it.
Reminds me of that time I brought her a bird....that didn't end...as expected. >_>;
"The blacker the wok, the better the cook."
Hot wax bath gear for bike chain.
Came across this on Gumtree early this morn. $20, perfect size and has internal stand so crap drops to base of cooker...as opposed to new $50 without accessories.
It's in Lonnie, thus no point going in unless I get a response.
Sent msg thru Gumtree and fone, waited till 9 am, no reply but spider senses said go in and grab this stuff from hardware...
...all the ingredients to make both heat treated wax and squirt on wax lube in bottle...plus pack of HD gloves as basic latex ones dissolve in mineral turps.
Checked msgs all morning, still no response. Just about to grab some lunch then head home, checked Gumtree once more, thus time fone symbol was lit so decided to ring. He answered straight away and bang, 5 mins later, I now got a new gas cooker sketch to make some sweet wax bike chains.
Perfect timing to get all the gear as even after only 2 rides on bitumen, the chain with oil based lube is a mess and attracts so much grit.
Also grabbed this, as the multitool is cumbersome for tweaking shit at home
A second-hand Fender Classical guitar which became unplayable simply because I changed the strings.
Ouch. You didn't do them all at once did you? There can be 3-400N tension in a guitar string, so taking them all off allows the natural resistence to bend the orther way with around 2000N force (or c200KG - like having two fat blokes standing on the machine heads)
