I’m picking out a thermos for you…

October 16, 2007

Gadget, Journal, Lauren

I’ve been looking at thermoses (thermi?) for about a year now. I bought one last Christmas from Target that’s pretty cute, but small. Off and on I’d browse the thermos aisles in stores, checking thrift stores, generally being pitiful. (Brad actually witnessed the ‘put it down’ thing when I found one at T.J. Maxx this summer. I’m sure he has no memory of it. It was a light blue & green plaid beauty. My heart skipped a beat.)

Anyway, on Sunday I bought a thermos that has brought me nothing but joy! It’s as if someone looked into my mind and thought, “How can we make a thermos irresistibly gadgety?” Oh man oh man. It has a carry bag, a LARGE cap that becomes a travel mug, and when you look at it you think, “Yeah, but I’d want a lid for that so I don’t slop stuff on me.” Well, guess what? You unzip the bottom of the bag, unscrew the bottom of the thermos, and there’s a sippy lid tucked right inside!! Plus, it was cheap – ten bucks! I love this thermos so much. I wish a doctor would put me on a liquid diet so I’d have to take it everywhere.

750 ml of awesomeness

Behold it's glory!

      Some grosso who got through the spam filters, Karla. He’s gone.

      Deanne, it’s from Gordman’s -- a strange place that used to be called The Half Price Store.

      Brad, it was the same day you bought the giant diamond.

    Whatever floats your boat …

    Er, I’m happy for you!

    If you don’t pour all of the content into the travel mug -- just half so that the rest will stay nice and warm -- can you still get to the sippy lid without spilling all the content out of the bottom? Just wondering and wrinkling my brow…

    Peter Pan was here????
