Remember that demo where your high school chemistry teacher had a solution of liquid in a clear container, set in on top a scale-looking thing, plopped in a special magnet bar, turned it on, and the magnet spun around stirring the solution? It may work differently, but this cup totally reminds me of that!

No more mocha sauce sinking to the bottom of your latte or undissolved sugar crystals ruining those last few moments of caffeine break. Hold down a button and a vortex in your mug stirs your tasty beverage for you! Drink perfection!

Chibi Chocobo Plush

Square Enix Final Fantasy Chocobo Tales Plush

I love all chocobos, but the chibi chocobo from Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon is my favorite. Put him in your car, on your desk, next to your alarm clock, or make him fly across the room.

Portal 2 Warning Signs Coasters

Smelly garbage...standing around...

Come on, there's SCIENCE to do, and the warning signs of Portal look great in your home. Now you'll never forget whether you're about to be tossed in the air or crushed by a falling cube. Great for keeping the wifey happy, too, by preserving her favorite coffee table.

Remember before when I was talking about smelly garbage standing around being useless? That was a metaphor. I was actually talking about you. And I’m sorry. You didn’t react at the time so I was worried it sailed right over your head. That’s why I had to call you garbage a second time just now.

      Ohhh my goodness that little chocobo is so cute!!! Of course, now I have the chocobo theme music stuck in my head... Blessed by a SquidAngel - not the least of all because you chose to put up the Alliance banner instead of the overrated Horde. ;)
