Hit the Snooze Button

No.  Please stop this madness.  It's not Christmas season.  It can't be Christmas season.  It was just October the other day, right?

Sigh.  I know some of you have already put up your Christmas lights.  A curse on you!  Kidding.  I get it.  You're going to be out of town, the kids are coming over, the weather's been nice.  I get it.  I just don't like it.

Whine. Whine.  Yesterday, a "last-minute" Hammacher Schlemmer catalog arrived in the mail.  Last-minute?  Really?  At least it's good entertainment and my wish list is nearly complete.

To kick-off the start-to-get-ready-to-think-about-gifts season, I've selected a few of my favorites:

I love taking power naps.  But, really, this thing?


I can see why Evil Twin loves it.  It is so her.   I'm a bit concerned about wearing it on an airplane, though, but at least it would hide the drool.  That hairstyle you put together?  It's toast.


Let's take it to the next level:



Wouldn't you love one of these in your office?  Let me get my warm cat and binkie.


But this last one is the one you simply must have....



in your spaceship.  I will certainly have one in mine.

Practice safe snoozing out there, folks.

That power nap head piece scares me. I'm claustrophobic. That thing would kill me. Is HS serious?

Timothy Hecht said...

Dear Santa, I would like one of each of these and a jar of sleeping pills and 9 days off. Thanks.

Rob said...

Bears naturally snooze at this time of year. And we do so without all the paraphernalia you have displayed. Yup; looking forward to a long winter's nap.

BTW, why does it take me five tries before I can comment here?

Blessings and Bear hugs!

@Lauren - Apparently, it is for real. Scary, huh?

@Timothy - Santa will check his list.

@Rob - Bears have to sleep in the woods, though. Maybe blogger takes lots of power naps?

I'm all about the naps, baby. All about it, but I'm not sure I could handle any of those "devices."

heh heh

I know at least twelve people I'd love to stick that head thing on. Permanently. :)

Oh, and I agree about Christmas being shoved down our throats too early. Of course I'm itching to put up my own tree though hehe.

It's amazing how early the season is thrust upon us...ugh. I love that office chair...gimme me!

meleah rebeccah said...

Um -- wow. That power nap head piece is totally terrifying! WTF?

Also - I think it's way too early for Christmas lights too.

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - Me, too. Love me some power snoozing!

@Chelle - Don't we all?

@Me-Me - The chair is cool. I could be very happy with that.

@Meleah - It's beyond creepy. I wonder how many they will sell.

What happened to just drinking till you passed out?

That head gear is the worst -- I would be totally embarrassed if significant other tried to pull that on. Geesh. I am opposed to hurrying up/mashing seasons/and am always the procrastinator, so the tree never goes up until around the 16th. And thank god we adhere to the 12 days of XMAS so I can get the cards out 'on time,' LOL...
