A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?

I don't know what's so bizarre about this list of delicious treats from Cafe Society. I mean who wouldn't want to eat a marshmallow-fluff-type-substance in a tube with a picture of a gorilla on it? At least the fluff comes out from the top of the tube and not the bottom (not sure if this is the case upon further inspection). Bonus: panda flavor available as well.

Name: Vin (aka influenza attractor)
How Vin feels today: Attractive @ 2:20:57 PM
What Vin really wants today: Yes, in between the times that I'm not coughing, wheezing, sneezing, and/or blowing mucus-infested nostrils I actually feel quite charming. Roar.

Music Stuck in Head: Let's Get It On / Marvin Gaye
Aww yea. Hold these dirty tissues and let's toast some NyQuil together. Or not.

Stuff to do today:

  • Cough, sniffle, cough
  • Finish up watching seventy minute Star Wars video review
  • What video review you ask? This one. You'll either love it instantly or instantly hate it
  • Snort, wheeze, sniffle
  • Also finish watching new episode of TWID
  • Elephant noise, cough, higaga
  • Finish up work, go home and sleep

Fifteen of the most influential games of the decard according to Wired.Fifteen of the most influential games of the decard according to Wired.

I'm not sure if I should be overly proud or overly sad that I have actually managed to play most if not all games on this list this past decade. Is there an achievement for that?

A list of the fifty most influential bloggers of 2009 thus far.A list of the fifty most influential bloggers of 2009 thus far.

I guess I should be reading more blogs because I've never heard of some of these names until reading this list just now. That's ok though, I'm willing to bet none of them have heard of me either - so it's a wash.

Daily Grind: Adventurous

Name: Vin (aka mr fixit)
How Vin feels today: Adventurous @ 1:56:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To fix my household plumbing problems without actually calling in a plumber. Update: fixed one problem and created another as I am a plumbing terror.

Music Stuck in Head: Siamese Cat Song / Lady and the Tramp
Mostly due to the fact that I had to watch this flick multiple times during the course of my three old's bout with the flu. Go on, have a look - it'll be stuck in your head too afterward.

Stuff to do today:

  • Debate whether or not to get flu shot despite being sick with flu-like symptoms last week
  • Previous item is understatement as entire household was sick with flu-like symptons
  • Flu shot = added protection?
  • Consult with nurse before getting said shot
  • Buy more plumbing supplies

Daily Grind: Hoarse

Name: Vin (aka house of flu)
How Vin feels today: Hoarse @ 7:04:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue loading up on various vitamins and anti-flu type medicines. Remind self to get flu shot prior to flu season actually starting next year.

Music Stuck in Head: Stomp the House / The Fresh Beat Band
Thank you Nick Jr. Who can I flog for putting this show in the face of my three year old?

Stuff to do today:

  • Apologize for limited posting of weekdaily links, influenza has taken hold of my entire family
  • Be better prepared next season, actually get flu shot
  • Launch various work projects from home
  • Check out some of the latest and greatest gadgets whilst I've been sick
  • That new Apple mouse looks even more ergonomically uncomfortable than the previous version
  • On the other hand, that Barnes and Noble e-reader is quite enticing
  • Note that above product actually requires desire to read publications with more than thirty pages
  • Give up, continue flu detox program

Controlling the shape of ferrofluids and then 'freezing' them in place could be another tool for inexpensive desktop fabrication. Combining two unusual uses of magnetic fluids invites further empowerment for the maker.
