Color+: Hama Beads on Headphone Cable

I'm a sucker for color. Also for cheap projects and the peerless elegance of simplicity. This idea has 'em all.

Absolutely brilliant.

From Wooz.DK. Good show, Ms. Andersen.

Melts in Your Mouth, and Pretty Much Everywhere Else

I was going back through old things I had set up to post but didn't for some reason or another and I found this. Nikki sent me a most generous package earlier this summer, and I am still at a loss for how I can ever fulfill my debt of awesome and interesting things to her.

The Astounding Nikki, who I fear shall be an expat forever more, always sends me astounding things. Sometimes those astounding things are made of chocolate, a medium I hold in very high esteem. Delicious esteem, you might say. The local climate, however, is less... uh... respectful.

I am pleased to report that in any physical format, Happy Eggs are delicious! Furthermore, their twee little faces, even when melted to the window of their packaging, remain perfectly adorable. The outcome of posting chocolate through the desert has never been more endearing (or more comedic) in my humble opinion.

For this and all other delights you send me, Astounding Nikki, please accept my sincere gratitude. I am without the means to thank you properly unless you should need a kidney someday. c:
