    OMG! If you haven’t read this, then you must. It fits exactly with your first statement about who needs seven swans a-swimming.

    I nearly fell off my chair laughing at this.
    I’m thinking of doing a dramatic reading of this at our family Christmas.

    This Chick-a-Dee smoke detector would make a great “calling bird”.

    OK lady, this list is great and all, but I have a bone to pick with you! I can’t just sit around reading reviews on amazon about sex toys! I have stuff to do!

    Seriously though. It’s a never ending supply of hilarity (and information!).

    That earbud holder is adorable! And such a useful thing to have.
