Catching A Few Zzz’s

This just in: It’s Income Tax Day. Or, if you happen to live in one of 12 New Jersey counties that were affected by the recent storms and flooding, you have until May 11. Click here for details. You’d think some of the money they spend sending notice after notice about receiving our Census forms could have been spent in telling us about this extension.  Just sayin’.

Are you tired, run down, listless? That was a question Lucy Ricardo asked when she was hawking Vitameatavegamin. Well, back then, you could spoon your way to health and you’d be able to join the “thousands of happy peppy people”, but there was no mention of being able catch up on your zzzz’s. Well, now, with a revolutionary new product, you can, and no one would be the wiser.

How many times have you felt like nodding off and know you just shouldn’t? At work? At school? Being stuck in a traffic jam on the way home from work, especially after an especially difficult day? Trying to get through this season of American Idol?


Well, fret ye not. Try Sleep Safe Tape.

 Hey, wait a second! Isn’t that Darrin Stevens? Was that one of his ad campaigns? (Click on both pics)



Anyway, it’s a roll of tape with eyes printed on it that peel off and you can stick to your eyelids so you can appear as though you are wide awake when you really need to be catching a few winks. For example, go from this:

To this:

Freaky, huh? (Don’t forget, you can click on all the pictures to enlarge them)

I would only hope that they came in different colors. I mean, everyone knows I have blue eyes. How would it look if I was asleep with brown ones? Maybe not as silly as it would like I had just plucked every last of my lashes out of my eyelids. On second thought, maybe using them in a traffic jam isn’t such a good idea, the cop who comes a-knockin’ at your driver’s side window might not appreciate that it’s you causing the tie-up especially with that blank stare.

So, the Lou crew began the tiling work yesterday in the bathroom. Oh man, it’s looking so good. I was stunned seeing it up on the wall and in the new shower stall. I’m taking pictures along the way so when it’s all done I can post them in one successive slideshow. I still have to find the home video, a tour of sorts, of the house from when we first moved in; I’m hoping there is some footage of the what the bathroom looked like that I can get a still shot from.

Well, it looks like it’s been a rough couple of nights for one of the nutty newts with American Idol, but even so, take a look to see if either one of them guessed correctly who got sent packing. And The New Shazzam perked up when they featured Elliott Yamin in a segment.

    Looks like Darrin picked up the “blue” Sleep Safe Tape on mistake! He’s not going to get away with that; but Samantha can help him out of any jam.
