Office Withdrawl.

Can you believe it’s gone? I’m really missing The Office – it was an integral part of so many peoples’ Thursday nights!

In memory of the show,  the Lil Wayne/Office theme remix:

Water from thin air!

So… BF and I are renting a friends basement. It’s a super nice basement and totally works for what we need right now. The only thing about basements is… they can get kind of.. damp. Our friend/landlord totally solved that problem when he hooked us up with this super fancy dehumidifier (thanks, Pat!). Boy does this thing work. It literally fills up about a 2 gallon bucket every 13 hours. That’s a lot of water I’m dumping down the drain at least once day.

That got me thinking... “Man. This water looks perfectly usable and I’m just dumping it down the drain…  I should invent something that makes this water drinkable!” So… I began googling and quickly found out that someone else has already thought of that.




Air2Water is a company that sells exactly what I had been thinking of inventing… a dehumidifier/water purifier!

The product that Air2Water sells is called the Dolphin:

…The Dolphin, has a certain elegance and convenience to it: no lines to hook up, no ungainly five gallon jugs to tote around — just plug in and witness the magic. The Dolphin will produce 20 liters (a little over five gallons, for those who don’t speak metric) of water per day at 70% humidity, which is enough for your office if you go through one of those ungainly water cooler jugs per day or less — plus, without the plastic waste, and avoiding other associated costs of water jug transportation (emissions, namely)… (taken from an article from Engadget)

Now… why didn’t I think of that…. oh wait! I did! I guess my real question is… Why isn’t this more publicized/widely used!?!?

What a great way to recycle water and do our part to keep our planet around a little longer!

Hey boys! This is for you.

Thursdaaay!! aka Friday Eve!
Tonight me and two girlfriends are going to see Train at The Norva! We’re super psyched… mostly because of that “Hey, Soul Sister” song. I’ve been listening to a lot of Train at work this week (so that I know more than one song) and I was surprised how many of their songs I actually know! I guess that makes sense considering Train has been around forever (and is still kickin’!).

Well.. today’s website is actually for the fellas! I know that a lot of my websites are definitely aimed toward the fairer sex… but not today, gentleman. Not today. I haven’t forgotten about you. (Although the ladies will still appreciate the site, I think. I know I dig it.). It’s called:

Cool Material.

 

 

Cool Material is a website that basically collects cool things that guys would like. It calls itself “Men’s gear blog featuring the latest trends in watches, gear and gadegts.” The site sort of reminds me of a “”ThisNext” type of site… only it is soley dedicated to men’s interests (but like I said earlier, there’s nothing wrong with the ladies looking through it).

The site is broken into 8 main (or MAN) categories… The 8 out of 9 categories that consume men’s thoughts (the 9th being the “women folk”, duh.): Gear, Tech, Style, Home, Media, Rides, Work, and Travel. There is a red thumb in next to each item which allows you to rate each item… guess that helps them rank the most popular items on their site.

Some of my favorite finds on this website include:

JakPak

 

Wood iPhone Case

 

Shwood Canby Sunglasses

 

Dry Erase CalendarVinyl Sticker

 

Cool Material is an infinite website… I could seriously list hundreds of awesome finds on here… but I’ll save you the time now so you can spend it later finding your own awesome things. This website is perfect to gather gift ideas– whether it’s for yourself, to tell others, or for the ladies to find things for their boys.

What are some of your favorite finds? I seriously want that Dry Erase Calendar.
