Those of you who have read the blog for a while know that I love to promote Threadless every time they have a good sale going on. Right now is no exception, they have a great selection of shirts, not including the one shown, on sale for only $5, better shop fast, the deal expires on Monday.
I am highly skeptical of a new Japanese trend that promises bigger breasts merely by using a new ring tone. In fact, I normally dismiss the concept of breast enlargement unless it involves cosmetic surgery.
The breast enlargement pills seem to be a fraud and they have some potentially dangerous side effects.
On the other hand, I’m not too quick to dismiss the concept of this cell phone ring tone that may grow women’s breast sizes by mentally reminding them of crying babies. The inventor isn’t a quack -he’s actually highly regarded in the Japanese scientific community. The logic behind his invention is somewhat reasonable as well. Women respond both physically and emotionally when they hear crying babies. Is it really that unbelievable that a ringtone that uses the same tones as a baby may stimulate a woman’s breast growth?
As I said, I’m highly skeptical, but the great thing is that this product is highly cheap and practically harmless to a woman’s health -so it’s a winning gamble to check it out. If you do, let me know if it works, because I think everyone would like a non-surgical option to breast enlargement.
If you just want to hear the ringtone, here it is.
Good Magazine has created a list of man-made disasters that are great stops for your vacations. As they are disasters, the trips are pretty cheap. While they sound gross, many of them are absolutely stunning.
I plan to visit the Salton Sea in the next year. The tourisism dried up and hotels and restaurants just sit there falling apart in disaray. It’s like a strange ghost town from the 1960′s.
Life Hacker has some great ideas on how to keep the tykes happy for cheap. They neglected to mention one of my childhood favorites, letting the kids play drums on your pots and pans. Also, I loved playing with the dogs and dressing my poor kitty as a baby and pushing her in the stroller.
Also good are crafts like macaroni art, popsicle stick buildings, scavenger hunts, flower pressings, making collages, chalk drawings and playing dress up.
What were your favorite childhood activities that cost practically nothing?

You heard that right, Life Hacker has a collection of DIY projects to create your own air conditioning unit using cool water/ice and a fan. My personal favorite is here, I’ll try to build one soon and let you know how it works out.
I like Mimi’s. While many of the reviews in this blog will be based in one local area or another, Mimi’s is all over the USA. Best of all, if you’re a poor sucker like me, it’s one of the best semi-French places you can afford to eat at.
They have great to go options. Their food is inexpensive and you get a good quantity. So it’s awesome to run over and pick up some Mimi’s on the run rather than hitting a drive thru and it’s way healthier.
The muffins, French onion soup and fruity bread are fantastic. They are all exceptionally rich and flavorful.
My favorite dinner dish is the scallop ratatouille ravioli. It has a few huge scallops, salmon, multi-colored ravioli with an excellent ratatouille filling of tomatoes, eggplant and other yumminess.
For breakfast, they have a mind-blowingly awesome stuffed French toast with a cream cheese and orange marmalade filling. The whole thing is covered in a selection of fresh berries and powdered sugar.
Considering most of items are under $15 a person, this is a good safe bet for lunch or dinner whatever metropolitan city you are in.
