The Random Vacation

Are you having problems deciding where to go on vacation this year?  Is all the hassle of choosing a destination too much for you?

You should consider a random vacation.   A random vacation is where you pick an amount you are willing to spend and computer program randomly buys you a complete vacation package within that budget to a random destination.  One year you may be swimming on the beaches of the Bahamas and the next year you may be tagging along with scientific expedition in Antarctica.

The Facebook Monster; Very Spooky Costume

Are you looking for a spooky and terrifying costume idea?  Have you thought of dressing up as the Facebook Monster?

The Facebook Monster is the spookiest and scariest monster of them all!  He knows everything about you, you even think he is your “friend”, but all along he creeps along unnoticed by you while he tells the world your secrets.  He will show your potential employer embarrassing pictures of you, your new boyfriend/girlfriend all about what happened during your last relationship and worst of all he knows what you really did last summer.

This crazy idea is inspired by the Illustration Friday word of the week, spooky.

The Only Steak Holder You Should Worry About

A “steak holder” is someone who has a direct interest in a portion of a business…. What???

No, it’s not!  A Steak Holder is something that holds steak.  It keeps the steak at the correct temperature and enhances the steak eating experience!

Goldfish Racing

Tired of watching boring old television shows and movies?  Do you want real racing action in your living room?

Goldfish racing is the new trend hitting fish bowls everywhere!   Your favorite goldfish decked out in racing stripes and numbers compete for the TetraFin Fish-flake Cup.  It might take all afternoon but sooner or later one of those goldfish will win the race.

Halloween Candy Alternatives

Everybody gives out candy on Halloween and for whatever reason you don’t want to give out candy we have a few recommendations for you to give out instead.   One idea is to give out personal finance guides, because goodness knows kids are very concerned about saving for college and retirement.   Small tubes of toothpaste are an obvious choice if you’re interested in combating all of the inevitable sugar bugs.  Hand wipes if you’re one who would like to keep hand clean from sugary messes.  And finally my favorite, you can give out your old unmatched socks from back in the days before you had the Dryer Defender!

You Should Eat Square Meals

Are you tired of wondering what to eat?  Do you stare into your refrigerator wondering what to eat tonight?  Do menus appear in  your nightmares because you dread decisions about what you should eat?

Get rid of those choices by choosing to eat only “Square Meals”.  “Square Meals” are nutritionally perfect meal squares.  They provide all of the nutrition you need with none of the worry about having to choose what to eat.  If you are concerned about the flavor you can stop worrying, because “Square Meals” have none.

Halloween Costume Idea: Be a Star Trek Elvis

Need a Halloween costume idea?  How about combining two great pop culture icons and going out this Halloween as an Elvis dressed in a Star Trek uniform?

You could sing songs like “Hunk of Burning Spaceship (in Space, a Place Without Oxygen)” , “You ain’t nothing but a Borg, Trying to Assimilate Everyone”  and everybody’s favorite “Only Klingons Rush In”.

Get Your Ducks in a Row

Get your ducks in a row!  I am not sure what that means, people tell me that all the time, but I don’t have any ducks.  I think it means I am supposed to go out, buy some rubber ducks and float them in a row.  I am not sure what it will accomplish, but it sounds fun anyway!

Tell Time Your Problems

You most likely learned how to tell time when you were very young.   But, what exactly have you been telling time?  Is time responding and being helpful?

The “Tell Time Your Problems” clock, finally gives time a method to respond to what it is told.   Tell the “Tell Time Your Problems” your most pressing problem and it will spit out a piece of paper with advice on how to solve your problem.

What Lies Beneath Those Boxes?

Curiosity is fun, take advantage of it by leaving interesting boxes around your house labeled with messages not to open them.  The boxes can be rigged with a loud annoying sound so when someone flips open the box to see what is beneath everyone around will know.  If you really want to track when a box is flipped open you could get creative and rig the boxes to text or Twitter you every time a box is flipped.

This crazy idea is inspired by the Illustration Friday word of the week, beneath.
