Collectors Unite

I've always liked collections, I like to look at them, hear people talk about them and I am usually fascinated by what people choose to collect. People around me collect: magnets, keyboards, video games, glass fishes, toys, scissors (ahem!ahem! I hope the lovely host of this blog will share that with us in detail) and they are all amazing!

I always wanted to start one, but it never seemed to come together (that is, if you don't count the amounts of trinkets, knickknacks and just plain old stuff filling up my house up to the roof). Until one day I realized that a collection is starting to grow in my possession, without me even knowing about it. Two side notes here: 1) you guys, clean out those boxes on your closet, surprises await and 2) isn't it just great to just sit around and suddenly realize you have something awesome going for you? Right? Right?

Here's the deal, I collect glasses (sounds boring, but it isn't. I promise). I wear prescription glasses everyday, but I also have a box of glasses with which you can't do much, but parade them at parties and have all around fun. And because I can, I am sharing my little collection with you (in gif form, how else?):

The blue ones have rear view mirrors. Because why not?

I know it's not a lot. But it's growing, steady, slowly and surely soon this gif will be updated and it will be as long as a movie (a short movie, but nonetheless). So now to the pressing question: Do you collect anything?

Just One Thing!

Is there something that gets on your nerves? A little thing that other people don't notice? Something you don't think about regularly but when you do, you feel an uncomfortable wave of anger?  Of course there is, you are human and this little pet peeves are part of our daily lives.

Are you now wondering what my pet peeve is? Of course you do, curiosity is also part of the human condition (this is as deep as I'll ever get, just look at the next sentence). You guys, I am annoyed by kitchen utensils that only do one thing and that thing is as lazy and as innocuous as it can be. For instance, there is a device for peeling oranges, it's like a ring and it has a little sharp crest with which you can pierce the peel and cut it. You put it on your finger, right beneath your fingernail, which can do the exact same thing as this glorious invention. After you are finished you put it in a drawer with knives, which do the exact same thing as this marvel of modern science.  Can you feel my mild irritation seeping through these lines?

But there's also an upside to these types of inventions and who better to fill our lives with whimsy than the Japanese. Dear readers take a minute and brighten your day by reading about Chindogu. And now let's take a look at some of them.

Are you tired of the tip of your shoes getting wet? Here's kind of a solution.

Do you need lighter? I have something better, it will just take a minute.

I know it goes against what I wrote earlier, but I would like a pair of these glasses.

Creepy, right? Right?

Look at more Chindogu here. And from now on whenever you want to buy something like a spoon rest, take a minute and think: "Do I really need this or should I just take a picture of it and send it to Noemi to really get on her nerves?"

Oh, it's great to have friends that can make you smile.
Friends that laugh at you when you trip on the street.
Friends that will try things you like, just because YOU like them.
Friends that will keep your side, even if they know you were wrong to do that in the first place. (talking about the small things...)
Friends that call just to see what's new.
Friends that are still your friends even if you haven't seen them in months.
Friends with great personalities, that you could listen to them talking for hours.
Friends with imagination.
Friends that are creative.
Friends that cook delicious meals.
Friends that dance the nights away.

And I could take this list to infinity! Because I have fantastic friends and am proud to admit it! They are my beautiful crazies and I adore them all!
