I know I said the holiday hiatus would end yesterday, but I received an after-Christmas miracle. Last minute, it was decided that I wasn't needed at work, so I used the unexpected freebie to run errands and watch the most bizarre football turnaround in the history of the universe. (I also learned that I HATE IT when people touch their faces while speaking, but I digress.)
How was your holiday weekend? Did you get everything you asked for?
If your haul wasn't so good this year, I have something that might make you feel a little better. It's called Gilt Groupe, a service that sells luxury brands at super-discounted rates. They claim up to 70% off, but items in the Final Sale area go for even less. (An Alexander McQueen jacket is 86% off, for example. [Also, my apologies for the lack of link--you do have to sign up to see anything. But it's free!])
Gilt has stuff for women, men, kids, and the occasional item for the home. You can searach by either size or brand, so there's no weeding through 9,275 items to see what will fit. They're also kind enough to tell you when something is in danger of selling out, so you can make a game-time decision if need be. More deets can be found here. Clickity-click!

Futuristic stripper shoes. I mean, is this what the ladies show up wearing when Captain Kirk orders entertainment for the Starship Enterprise?
In an unusually bad move, Macy's has decided to sell these. They were $79, but have been marked down to $55.30, which isn't just a sale price--it's a clearance price. Clearance, you say? How STRANGE! It's almost like nobody wants to buy them...

POP QUIZ! Solve for x! What's the square root of 64? You can solve the problems if you really want to, but I think most of us will just remember where the numbers are. The Pop Quiz Math Clock from Think Geek is $26.99.
No, he's not just miming his solo--he's actually playing it. The Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt is fully interactive, complete with a mini amp at the left hip, a magnetic pick, and the ability to play all major chords. There's another version with a drum kit, and since each is only $29.99, you could have the cheapest band start-up ever.

I don't normally like real fur, but this is just adorable. (I'm taking cold medicine, so when I first saw it I thought it looked like polar bear, but it's just mink. Do people even wear polar bears? I bet not. Good thing I don't have to use my brain today.) Anyhoodle, as much as I like this, I'd be too afraid to wear it in the city, lest some manic PETA member decided to go all Carrie on me.
When I got the link from Ebay the price was only $31, so if you're a fur fan, this is a steal.
While we're on the topic, how do you feel about fur? Does it weird you out? Are are you lounging on your bearskin rug right now? Comments!
