You’ve Gotta See This

November 17, 2011 · 34 comments

All of these. You’ve gotta see ’em.

I think I stared at the above picture thinking back for a solid 60 seconds. WHAAAT? WHAT DID YOU DO, HARRY? WHAT DID YOU DO.


Where can I purchase this bad boy? I need to start painting these for bLyss Designs.

And drink out of it.

I’m going against what I said before and decided I will one day have a child. So I can wear this.


You’re welcome for the addition to your Christmas list, Brittany, Gina, and Katie.

And all of this is brought to you by the art of good ol’ distraction. There are so many things I should be getting done in my evenings, and instead I’m tooling on the internet.

On Facebook. On Pinterest. On Someecards.

I’m also a bad influence on all my friends. I’m pretty positive I can convince anyone to get on Pinterest. Even my dad.



I’ve come to a conclusion.

Social Media = a concept invented by the Chinese to make all Americas even less productive, and therefore, more vulnerable to relinquished world leader status to China.

You win, guys. You win.

In the meantime, I’ll be kitting myself a laptop compubody sock via a Pinterest knitting tutorial.


Oh wait. That would never work. The computer is the one to blame for my distractions in the first place.

What the heck is that last picture? Haha that is hilarious. I’m pretty sure I spend way too much time doing random crap on the internet. How would I procrastinate without it though?!

NO WAY! I can’t believe it was Nagini! NO. WAY!

Hahaha. Wow. You just made me laugh out loud twice while sitting in my office.. alone. Thanks for adding to the “nikki’s a bit of a nut” rep I just might have here. 🙂

Seriously though, the baby carrying sweater cover thing? Creepy looking. Creepy. Yet, I want to buy it for someone and MAKE them wear it. Everywhere.


6 Celia November 17, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Wow i did not realize that about Nagini…and those glasses are such a fantastic idea!

Ok, the Harry Potter thing blew my mind!! So, I had to look it up right away…unfortunately, it’s not true. Plus the snake at the zoo was a Boa Constrictor while Nagini was not<—-Nerd Alert!

I think we just got Rick Rolled…


14 Antony Justin November 17, 2011 at 6:37 pm

The second one ,ohhh!!! (^.^) winning , that.

Where do you find this stuff?!
Just so you know, I have a million things to do today…like, shouldn’t-even-get-up-to-pee kind of busy, yet I still pause to visit your blog because I know it will make me laugh. To me, your are the colleague in the next cube over that doesn’t let me get any work done.. and I love you for that.

PS- my mind is blown, too. WTH Harry?!

Oh. My. Goodness! Absolutely HILARIOUS! I want one of those baby snuggies. And what is UP with that head sock laptop thing? I think I would freak seeing that on someone.

Lastly…isn’t the book the Sorcerer’s Stone and not the Philosopher’s Stone?

18 Georgia @ Trying Something New November 17, 2011 at 8:34 pm

The Nagini thing isn’t true!!! As a fan of Harry Potter, the first book explains that the snake in the zoo was born and raised in the zoo (which is why it wants to escape and see the world) therefore Voldemort would never have been able to make it the Horcrux in the first place.

Wow, I am way too much of a nerd… Great post!

Ok. So I’m going to have to wave my Harry Potter fangirl flag and call that first picture out as a fake…I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure J.K. Rowling has mentioned before that the snakes were not the same. Plus Nagini was female and the snake from the zoo was male. Maybe I’m wrong, but I got all worked up in a fuss. haha. I need more proof!


20 Andrea @ Andrea Out Loud! November 17, 2011 at 9:08 pm

I need that wine glass/jar in my life asap! If you started selling them, my Christmas shopping would be DONE (yes, I’m friends with a bunch of wine-os).

Pinterest owns my soul. I’m pretty sure that if my boyfriend were to ever find my wedding and kid boards, he would run for the hills.

PS: Harry!??!! WTF! I can’t believe I never put that together.

You find the funniest stuff – I swear! Though thanks to Pinterest I too am stumbling upon all kinds of hilarious, beautiful, shiny, and delicious things I need. And subsequently I haven’t had an actual full productive hour of work in weeks…It happens.

P.S. – The mega wine glass idea is awesome. I think you could probably make a ton of $$$ and retire early if you start painting and selling those puppies. 🙂

hahaha! Oh my goodness. Everything in this post cracked me up.
What the heck is with the laptop/head thing?! I want one of those just because it’s so ridiculous looking. Oh, and that wine glass bottle is brilliant!

I’m purposely avoiding Pinterest because I know I would get addicted! 😉

27 Rach November 18, 2011 at 2:58 am

Okay so no joke, I have totally wondered that about the snake from the zoo being Nagini, but I never found anything definite about it. I am totally calling myself brilliant on this one. 😉

Also, I love Pinterest. I am thoroughly addicted. 😀

Someecards is sooo addicting, as is Pinterest. I have to keep myself off of those sites! And Etsy..that one’s fun to look at too.

29 Lyndsay @ Thinspiration November 18, 2011 at 5:26 am

The Harry Potter thing isn’t true. I saw it on Facebook yesterday. The first book clearly states that the snake was born & raised in captivity. Plus, it’s not even the same breed of snake. One is a boa and one is a python.

1) True story- I made my dad ban access to Pinterest on my laptop because I was getting so obsessed.
I then spent 2 weeks googling how to un-ban stuff.

2) I’m aware un-ban may not be a word, but I’m all googled out.


31 Megan @ The Road To Skinny November 18, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Oh my gosh, I totally saw that Harry Potter thing a couple days ago and it BLEW. MY. MIND! I would love to get in JK Rowling’s head for a day, I would be blown away by the awesomeness that she has in there!
