Creepy Baby Lamp

When I am looking for new stuff to post about I sometimes search on random words put together. A lot of times my word mixtures do not produce anything, but once in awhile I get lucky and hit upon some uber creepy item. Today’s creepy item is the Baby Lamp. Yes, those are the everyday words I searched on. I was just spitballing. I didn’t really think anything would come up of interest. Wow, was I wrong! I thought maybe this was just a design project or something, but no it’s a mass produced item that you can purchase online from a real store. I mean, really?!? What the hell? I love creepy stuff, but this is just weird. Is it really meant for a nursery or is it just a novelty? What really cracks me up is the cord coming out of his butt. Wouldn’t it have been better if it came out of his belly button like an umbilical cord? This little weirdo comes in various colors and can be had for about $100. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t you want one for your desk at work?



Skull Clock

20111006-123826.jpg
Usually when it’s time for me to write a post I go to my handy dandy Booky Book. What’s a Booky Book you ask? Well, it’s basically my idea list for posts. I spend a ridiculous amount of time surfing the web and when I see something or someone sends me a link it goes in the Booky Book. Usually I just open it randomly and find something to write about right away. Today I couldn’t find it and out of just plain laziness I googled the word skull and eventually came across this Skull Clock. I covet this clock and at $34.95 it’s a no-brainer. That rarely seems to happen to me. No matter how much I love it though, I find myself wishing it were a little different. Maybe instead of the mouth opening up to reveal the clock the mouth could just open by itself to tell me the time. Though that’s probably just my laziness again. It would be especially cool if it had the voice of the Cryptkeeper. Oh how I miss that little guy.

Horrorscopes

I’ve never been much of a believer in fortune telling, horoscopes etc., but I do find it fun. In college I became obsessed with tarot cards and learning how to read them. Strangely it was not because I wanted to really tell people their fortunes. I just wanted to know how to do it and what the cards supposedly meant. Now I look at it as a fun parlor trick that I pull out for our Halloween parties. I have a fantastic outfit that I wear and everyone seems to love it. I, of course, go way overboard and predict all sorts of weird things. What’s funny is when one thing I predicted actually happens. I just came back from a little vacation to visit Scary Hubby’s family in Philly and as usual we went to lots of bookstores. You know I have to check out the competition. Anyway, we ended up in Barnes and Noble and as I was looking through the bargain books I found this little book called Horrorscopes: A Little Book of Misfortunes. I didn’t have time to look at it, but it had a skull on the cover so I went ahead and bought it thinking it would give me something to read on the plane. This little book is just so fun. It has a twisted horoscope for every day of the year. The book is not for any particular year, so it even has Feb. 29th. The horoscopes can range anywhere from predicting a zombie apocalypse to preparing for impending horrors like your transformation into an ogre. It also lists dark days, unlucky numbers, evil omens and gruesome gift ideas. Such a riot. I highly recommend this book if you have a dark sense of humor or if you just need to discover the horrible fate that awaits you.



Skull Stationary

These days people write emails or text. They just don’t write letters anymore. It seems to be a lost art form. Once upon a time I just loved stationary. I spent entirely too much time and money in my local Hallmark. Over the years all of that stationary has been packed away and relegated to the attic never to be seen or heard from again. I recently got a bee up my butt and decided I wanted to do some letter writing again. As I was searching online for some cool new stationary, my super intelligent Scary Hubby asked, “What about all of that stationary in the attic?” Dumb ass. He just doesn’t get it. I ended up finding this fantastic black Skull Stationary Set on theĀ Vivre site. Plain black with just the simple white skull. Perfect. It even comes with a silver pen because obviously my usual ink of choice, black, would not show up. One problem. It costs $120. Really?!? For 10 envelopes, a pad of paper and a pen? I mean it’s gorgeous, but I’m not convinced that it costs that much to produce. I know, quality paper… yada, yada, yada, but still not buying it. Literally or figuratively. I guess my search will continue on while Scary Hubby keeps mumbling about the box in the attic.



Spiderweb Clock

I love clocks. I’ve always been fascinated by how they work. I used to take them apart as a kid and try to build my own with a spooky twist. Now it’s not so much fun since most are made with batteries. I still scope out the antique shops and ebay for them, but they have become quite collectable and therefore more expensive. My love goes back to the fact that I’m a freak about getting places on time. I absolutely hate to be late (no rhyme intended). We all have our issues. I just happen to have quite a few of them. I was trolling around online for clocks and came across this funky Spiderweb Clock. This time somebody already did the work for me and made it spooky. I think it’s great! The one thing I would change, if I could, would be that the spider be attached to the minute hand. I’m a picky bitch though, so I’ll let that one go. Makes a perfect kitchen clock. I have so many clocks in our house, so I’m not sure I have room for it. Also don’t know if I can convince my family that we are in dire need of another clock.



Skull Earbuds

I was online shopping for a birthday present for my brother-in-law and got distracted as usual. Just show me anything shiny or scary and I’m off looking at other things. I ended up coming across these great skull earbuds. I followed the link only to discover that they were sold out. Of course, that just pissed me off and put me on a mission. After a lot of searching I found some even better ones over on Amazon.com. These are not just skull earbuds, but Crystal Encrusted Skull Earbuds. The best part? They are only $24.99. Even if they don’t work that well who cares? They are shiny skulls and I’ll look awesome wearing them.
