Massive MP3 player
Hi Gadgettes, I thought you might get a kick out of this mp3 player.

It?s freaking huge!! And it has a whopping 256 mgs of memory!!

Only 19.99 through Dec. 15th, and it comes in pink.

I don't know what category these could fall under, but I know I really should have gotten one of these a looong time ago. It probably goes well with the mini vacuum cleaner for your keyboard.

Plucking the nerve (sorry!)
The Hello Kitty theme is not THAT bad. It's just that I listen to the podcast on my iPod with my in-ear earbuds. When that last "rrrrewr" sound comes on, I literally cringe as if I can get away from the sound that is plugged directly into my ears. Jason, my friend, you have a gift for reaching from my ear directly into my brain and plucking a nerve cell. Unfortunately, I don't think you plucked it out. It is still there, waiting to be abused by your theme music again next week.

Bring. It. On.

Molly,

hmmm...I wonder if there's an associated "pastel Lego" set all made with girls/women in mind...

What do you call a blender blending a blender?
I was listening to episode 70. When you mentioned the listener who saw the BlendTech blender and had a conversation with the clerk about blending a blender. Jason called this "cannibalistic", but I think it's more "recursive blending".

I love the podcast. You bring a smile to my face every time I listen. Also, you have way too much fun at work. Keep it up!
