DIY Table YO.

I decided last night that I was going to paint a dinning table I got on Craig's list for 30 bucks. I was totally inspired by Homebug's very similar DIY for a painted coffee table.

Coffee Table

I'm not entirely sure if I'm happy with the result (it was inspired by this oilcloth) though but here it is anyway. I guess I'll keep it around and try to get used to it. If not there's always covering it up with a good oil cloth! Here's the before and after, you be the judge!

One more with a vase?

Sticky Sprites Invade my Walls!

I'm listening to: MC Chris- Fetts Vett

So by now everyone knows I live in an apartment and that means that no matter how many awesome HGTV ideas I get into my little head I CAN'T paint or poke tons of holes in the wall. It's like living with my mom but with absurd rent. Anyway I found out about some awesome product that are reusable, require no tape nails or glue and is awesomely geeky all at the same time.

I give you SPRITES! (They'll run you between 40-45 dollars.)



Yup I'm done.


Fake Responce to my Roommate Search?!

Okay so there's this HUGE scam going around Craigslist and I thought I'd put it out there so these people can't con anyone else. Luckily I was able to catch it but then again mine was pretty obvious.

It started when I put an ad on Craigs looking for a roommate and I got about four responses to it one of which was a "girl" from France. Anyway the scam is that they want to send you money through either a cashier's check or a check, western union or a money order. In my case they sent me a check for 3500 dollars when I only asked for 150, then they said they'd "made a mistake" and asked me to send them back the 3350.

BUT the catch is the check they send is a fake, and it WILL bounce. So instead of making some extra cash you get left with nothing after sending YOUR actual money to them.

Like I said though mine seemed fake, I mean they "live in France" sent me a check from a Texas address and wanted me to wire money to their "travel agent" in Alaska. Yeah right. So I was able to google it and found these news articles on it.

Hopefully this helps someone!

Lean Mean Green Machine!

This is a water regenerator called the Slingshot and it's the greenest product I've ever heard of. It uses vapor condensation distillation, meaning noooo filters or chemicals whatsoever! This thing cranks out perfectly clean water from any source: sea water, mud puddle, sewage, urine anything. And! Get this it generates enough electricity to power 70 energy-efficient bulbs!

Anyway I've got nothing more to add to this video but this is awesomeness.

(Interview with the Segway guy taken from the Colbert Report)

Totally got this shit from Geekologie which if you haven't read it yet you really should. He blogs about the things I wish I blogged about. My wet blog dream if you will.

Happy Earth Day!

Scottish Singers Single!

The Fratellis just announced their new single and I'm totally stoked. Here's a sound bite if anyone cares to have a listen.

Anyway the new album is titled Mistress Mable and is due out June 9th.



I'm trying to be a big girl blogger now.

Skinny Ties, we've all seen them but who wears them anymore? Not many that's the problem. As a female male-enthusiast I'm going to put out my top 5 fashion pointers for you guys.

Skinny Tie
Anyway this piece costs about 100 bucks at but frack that, you COULD just try ebaying it for about 7 dollars. Saving 83 bucks. Priceless.

Pea Coat
This one's Kenneth Cole.. but pft who cares. You can get the same look, or maybe even better, for much less. Point in case.

Just an example. It's cute.

One word. Goodwill. Do it. Lookit what I got there for 8 bucks.

Sweater Vest
Your mom could knit you one, serious. Tell her to hold all the.. pattern though.

So yeah I did just google all those pictures. What you gonna do about it? Nothing that's what. Anyway I'm going to think about more for you later. Keep updated.

Geek-chic is in.
