A lil wtf tuesday

Mrtl's thematic suggestions are so great, but I rarely get around to accomplishing them. But not this week! This week I am on le ball.

First off for wtf tuesday is a little item I saw whilst working at the mall a few weeks ago. I enjoyed a little pee-break and then took my sweet time getting back to my booth, because I was working with someone else for a change. I checked out a few shop windows, and stopped at this store, with some pretty things in the window. It was called "Vintage Memories". You know the drill, fancy beaded lampshades and tatted lace linens and lots of dollies with glass heads and baptismal gowns on. All a bit over the top but still fun to look at.

Then I saw the most horrifying thing ever. A monkey doll, fully dressed in ornate Victorian clothing.

I know! WTF, right?!! I stared at the thing and I swear it was trying to send me some secret messages of terror and madness. The poor dolly beside it looked like it had succumbed to the monkey's evil aura. And there was a giraffe, on the floor beside it, that was also fully done up in Victorian garb. Wee-erd. I made the girl I was working with take the above picture with her camera phone, lest I went back the next day and it was gone, having been a strange hallucination brought on by mall air and a not-so-fresh Subway turkey sub.

I will try to get a better picture of it and maybe it's giraffe partner this weekend. Because I don't care if it is the day before the day before Christmas on friday. NOBODY in their RIGHT MIND would buy that thing, especially not as a gift.

So. In other news I threw my back out almost two weeks ago and I am still hobbling around. What a drag. Advil barely takes the edge off. I am going a bit insane because there are pots of things to do around here what with Christmas being FIVE DAYS AWAY and all, and I am good for about a half hour then de pain kicks in. Wah.

Alright, well, I must go. On my hands and knees I shall drag out all the bags of presents in my closet and see what still needs to be bought. Wrapping! ARgh I forgot about wrapping!

Oh well, it could be worse. I could live in the window with that monkey.

omg! I actually was in the mall on Sunday and saw this monkey. It so totally tried to steal my thoughts! I was just casually looking at the window, and then our eyes locked, and I swear i heard him inside my head " bring me a blood sacrifice or I will haunt you forever." WTF? But I mean, what could I do right? I grabbed the first Christmas elf I could find and shoved him right in that window and took off. Seriously true story. That monkey is EVIL.

WTF indeed. That's just downright scary.

Hope your back gets better soon! What a drag (and I don't mean you with the gifts on the floor on your hands and knees)

Take care!

I have to agree that the monkey is very creepy. I'm glad I didn't look at him for too long!

That thing is freaky.

Do NOT sleep with a back brace on...just a helpful hint from yours truly.

I couldn't even get off the pot by myself b/c I expanded my muscles so much from the heat...I know you wanted to picture that, huh!?

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

No wonder Dubya is so intent on running this world back to the stone age. He misses his Victorian Clothing.
