Oh, most fabulous thingamajig

Gadget, Journal

Happy Birthday, Dad!!!

As I’ve said before, the love of gadgets runs strong in my family, but I’m pleased to note that we don’t go super ga-ga over useless stuff, like a……. (insert useless gadget item here). No, no – functionality is key.*

My sister gave me a set of amazing key-style gadgets. The set of three had a bottle opener, a flat-head screwdriver, and – my personal Holy Grail of keychain gadgets – a philips-head screwdriver!!!! Seriously, I have wandered through many a hardware store trying to figure out how to hack something like this, because I’m always needing one. (Case in point: When I accosted that lady in TJMaxx, I used it to tighten the tuning pegs on her ukulele.)

I’ve decided to keep the other screwdriver and opener in my truck instead of my keyring, because my gadget-to-actual-keys ratio is getting dangerously high (1:1)

Keys, baby nail clippers, USB drive, money keeper, flashlight, screwdriver.

*Heh. I just got it. ‘Key’. My subconscious cracks me up.

Update for Brad:
Yes, there’s a USB drive. It’s one of those cute foldable things, but I don’t trust it very much. On some reviews it said that it ruined information. I don’t know if it’s worth keeping – it might be a killer.

    Maybe you just just keep your keys in the truck and fill your keyring with gadgets! That would be cool.

    And you have a USB drive on there? Is it behind the flashlight?

    I really like that key-screwdriver one…now that is clever!
    I don’t have any gadgets on my keychain…but I do have a cute little flip-flop…which might come in handy if I ever run into a shrunken woman with only one shoe.

    Happy Birthday Lauren’s Dad!! (Your happy smile reminds me alot of my dad’s happy smile.)
