People, I offer you just a few bits and pieces from the world of commodity fetishism today. I am kind of swamped with crap to do, so you’re going to just have to drool over these things and let that tide you over until I report from BlogHer later in the week. Listen, I don’t want to hear any bitching out of you two. You two readers that is. I know for sure there are at least two of you. And you both better keep your traps shut about me not writing a more substantive post today.
First of all, how cool is this:
That’s right, Equinox is now offering refrigerated, Eucalyptus-infused towels to members right on the weight-room floor! All for the benefit of
Mr. Kite me while I’m sweating like a pig and working out. And oh yes, me likey the cool towels, especially since it has been beastly hot around these parts lately. Now, does it justify them raising our monthly rates earlier this year? Hardly. But it’s still a nice touch. Brava, Equinox!
Next, let me introduce you to the Mophie “juice pack” iPhone/iTouch case (front view is pictured above):
Mr. Right-Click bought me this new device called a Mophie, which is an iPhone/iTouch case that is also a battery pack. When it’s fully charged, it can nearly double your iPhone/iTouch battery life, and of course works as a protective case (something I need because I’m often dropping my iPhone). It’s pretty cool and I haven’t had any problems with it yet. It does extend the thickness of the iPhone slightly, but I can still fit it in my pocket, and I had already been used to the size of a plastic case for my iPhone anyway. I highly recommend it for extending battery life at BlogHer and beyond, and it looks like the people at Mophie are having some kind of giveaway between now and the end of July, too, so check it out.
Finally, some socks.
Not only do these socks by lululemon come with “L” and “R” embroidered into them, they are very cushiony and colorful. But the more exciting part is their inclusion of silver thread in the lining, which is a naturally antimicrobial substance and as such it discourages bacterial-related stinkiness in your socks. Which, you know, maybe isn’t an issue for everyone. But let’s just say I find it convenient. For some reason, they don’t have them on the website, but if you check your local lululemon store, you should be able to find them in the running section.
