Voodoo Knife Set


I found it!

I saw a picture of this in a catalog about a year ago, and I’ve been trying to find it ever since. This morning, it arrived in my inbox, courtesy of ThinkGeek.

Now, I know it’s a bit morbid (and I’m not sure Amy will let me have one in our kitchen), but it’s just so dang creative and humourous (in a dark, dark way) that I just adore it.

Living Generously

For 12 months more than 300 of us, spread all around the country, are attempting to support and inspire each other in a Year of Living Generously. It’s everything from putting a plastic brick in the cistern to reduce water usage, signing up as an organ donor, neutralising our air travel, switching to fair trade products or sharing a meal with someone outside our ‘comfort zone’.

You can even sign up and indicate which ones you’re doing in your household, and discuss/ask for help from other folks living generously (like 43things for EnviroGeeks).

It’s a UK site, but most of the tips will work anywhere.

How to get a human when calling customer service

How sad is it that we need a website like this?

Some of the newer voice activated automated help lines aren’t as bad- the voice is pleasant and you can actually get things done without a lot of button mashing. However, sometimes I need to talk to a human being- one with critical thinking skills. Now, there’s no guaruntee the person who answers after I mash “0” repeatedly can 1. help me, or 2. has critical thinking skills, but there’s at least a chance!
