I went out tonight despite a worse than usual hangover, which involved a pounding head and a queasy stomach. I do not know what I was thinking but I went ahead and indulged at a Chinese buffet (now you know how much food that involves!) and then went to a bar to watch the launch of a friend’s music video. For the most part, things went well; that is, until our ride overheated and another friend sent a text message saying that she got into a car accident. Needless to say, my nerves are shot right now. Good think I saw these little furry tribbles, a la Star Trek.
Naturally, I have Think Geek to thank for this burst of inspiration. These tribbles are a species of their own, and are purported to calm the nerves of any humanoid. The best thing about them is that they are born pregnant (whaat?) so you can have a lot of them in no time at all.
Seriously, though, these fur balls are cute little things that will be handy at times like these. They look like, well, balls of fur – and that is always a guaranteed way to relax. They come at $14.99 to $19.99, and will even interact with you when you play with them! The package includes:
– Cute furry robotic creatures that shake and quail when disturbed
-Two sizes, large (about 12″ in diameter) and small (6″ in diameter), and come in random shades of black, brown and grey
-Is partial to quadrotriticale, but really likes AA and AAA batteries, conveniently included in its velcro-edged stomach
-On-off switch conveniently hidden inside the tribble!
-Guaranteed to have a calming effect on most humanoids.
I should go get one now for the next time I need some calming down.
