Fun Up Your Fridge – Bacon Magnets (and more)…

Believe it or not, I wasn’t looking for bacon things today…I was looking for something fun for Lil’ Baird who will be celebrating birthday number one soon.  The interwebs sort of moved me to and lo and behold…BACON!


Aren’t these great.  Happy plush bacon magnets to greet you each and every morning, noon and night!

But wait…there’s more…

Good and EVIL bacon ornaments!!  Happy holidays to me!!

I love these little guys so much, I’d buy a t-shirt…oh wait…


Pop on over to to see all the other great little toys and items, including some mean cookies and monster bats!!  I have a feelin’ a few things on the site will end up in Lil’ Baird’s bedroom.

As friends of TDB you may have come to over these last few years that I have a “thing” for carbonite.  Most specifically, Han Solo in carbonite.

The ONLY thing that I truly covet is a life sized Han Solo in carbonite.

While my dream has still yet to be realized, I have amassed quite a collection of substantially smaller versions, many of which have been highlighted on these electronic pages.

But now I have found quite possibly the SECOND greatest carbonite related product, this thanks to Lucasfilm and Disney World as part of their Star Wars weekends at Hollywood Studios

Guests at Star Wars Weekends this year will be given the opportunity to step into a “Carbon Freezing Chamber,” located near The American Idol Experience in the theme park, and have their faces 3-D scanned using multiple cameras to create a 8-inch figurine depicting themselves frozen in carbonite. It also comes with a light-up wristband.

What, what, what?!?

First thing I felt? Excitement – This is the coolest thing ever!

Second thing? Regret – Why did we book our Disney vacation when we did?

Third? Bargaining – How could I POSSIBLY get back down to Florida next weekend?

Fourth? Acceptance – I’m never going to have this.


So, to any of you will either live near the happiest place on earth or are planning on already attending the family nerdfest that is Star Wars weekend…don’t be like me and miss out!  Save those pennies (it costs $99.95) and go get yourself frozen!

Coolest Key Chain Ever?

As a nerd I have always been partial to the Lego Star Wars mini figure key chains, but this absolutely takes the cake…

Seriously, if a cooler key chain exists I don’t know about it!

Now that’s a burger…bacon, cheese, avocado, tomato, blah, blah, blah, yum, yum, yum…

This little wonder is from the Japanese company Re-Ment.  It’s one of a series of 12 sculpted food key chains.

Their $1.99 and available at the Japanese supermarket chain Mitsuwa (which is no where close to us here in Detroit). Thing is each package is a blind draw, so you have no idea if you’ll get a bowl of ramen or what I am officially calling the coolest key chain ever.
