Primula Teas

This is kind of cool. They make coffee and tea makers/ware, but the coolest thing is their flowering teas. Thats right, no tea bags for them - instead you get a tea ball that when dropped into water, not only makes tea, but also makes different flowers. The prices aren't bad and they should make great gifts.

Meg Cabot's Blog -- Simply the Best

There are only a few blogs I follow (who has time?!), but one of my favorites of the few is that of YA writer Meg Cabot, she of The Princess Diaries. I know, you're saying, Princess Diaries? You gotta be kidding. No, I'm not, although Meg kids around a lot herself, which is what makes the blog so great. She spends more blog time entertaining than complaining. While you're there, be sure to check out her VidLit, which is also funny.

The VOCO Clock

The VOCO Clock

Not cheap. Reproduces the subtle wit employed by P. G. Wodehouse's most famous character--the valet Reginald Jeeves politely affirms the beginning of the day. 126 different wake-up messages in the reserved voice of Stephen Fry When the alarm sounds, Jeeves speaks softly as he assuages your displeasure that the morning has indeed come: "Excuse me sir, I'm so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning... Very inconvenient, I agree... I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame" or greets you with "Good morning, sir... I feel sure you have slept soundly, feel thoroughly refreshed, and await the day with the anticipation of an energetic gazelle. If you are not roused sufficiently, a series of beeps will ensue A press of the rosette at bed time initiates a three-minute relaxation message with ambient music. Made of wood and handpainted in a subdued lacquer. A button on the back illuminates the clock's face.
