Are we playing "friendly robber"?

"For yourself or a gift, this set of 11 handmade, 3D trading ships are designed to replace the 2D trading ships in Settlers of Catan. This is a new and improved design, perfected after some play-testing.
Each ship is approximately .75" tall and the bases are 1.25" long and 1" wide, just the size to cover over the ships on the seas around the island of Catan.
This 11 ship set includes 1 ship each that trade wood, wheat, brick, and ore; 2 ships that trade sheep; and 5 ships that trade any resource 3:1. Each base is a light blue, to blend into the water in the sea around Catan. A 3D replica of the building resource being traded by the ship is situated on the base so that the entire table can see their potential ports!
To use these ships with the 4-player game, please remove one sheep ship, and one 3:1 ship. Include those two ships if you intend to play with the 5-6 player extension.
These ships are compatible with both the base game and the Cities and Knights expansion set."

You should do this!!! Seriously!!!

    The other night, we ordered pizza from Papa John's (mmm....garlic butter!) and in the spirit of TheArtofTrolling and FailBlog type pranks/ideas, we put "draw a wizard on the box" in the delivery instructions....and they freaking did!!!! They drew this fairly detailed wizard on the inside of one of the pizza boxes! So you should try it and let me know how they respond and what you can get them to draw!

But I am le tired!

Beam me up!

 "Casualwear aboard the USS Enterprise
It was a late night in the sciences lab on board the USS Enterprise. The Captain said he needed a cure for the virox plague on Cor Caroli V, so that meant every scientist on the ship was hunched over a scanner. All night, your forehead was pressed into the scanner hood until your eyes burned.
Those late night sessions always made for difficult morning shifts, and at 0800 you have to be up-and-at-em at your post. You roll out of your bunk and plod over to the foodslot for your morning coffee. Too tired to even put on your uniform, you hope nobody will mind that you're wearing your Starfleet issue bathrobe.

I mean, it looks like a uniform, from a distance - they're the same color as your sciences department top, or command-gold if that was your department. They have your department insignia on the left breast, and even your rank embroidered on the sleeve. As long as you stay casual and relaxed (easy to do in this warm and soft terrycloth bathrobe), nobody will notice anything's amiss.
You step up to the food slot, insert your bright red data tape, watch the blinkenlights for a moment, and out pops a steaming hot cup of Ethiopian Sidamo. Armed with your stimulant, it's back to the sonic showers before you join Alpha shift on the bridge. Those buttons aren't going to press themselves.
  • Warm and soft terrycloth robes
  • Officially licensed by CBS
  • Embroidered insignia on left breast and rank on the sleeves
  • 100% cotton
  • Measurements:

    • Waist: Up to 50 inches
    • Sleeves: 34 inches"

Amoeboid Protozoa

"Silicone rubber is cut into an organic network of distorting ellipses. The pattern displays shifts in direction and scale, creating a sense of movement and tension around the wrist. These complex forms recall those of radiolarians, plant cells and even the familiar honey comb.

This bracelet is formed from a single piece of silicone and comes laced with a silk satin ribbon. Silicone rubber is an odorless and heat resistant rubber. Its high tensile strength allows the bracelet to recover from both stretching and crushing with no damage.

"Admiral Ackbar must have been heartbroken as a young Mon Calamari. Just ask him about love and this is what he'll say.

"This poster celebrates the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a $20 billion, multi-national, gigantic particle accelerator spanning the French/Switzerland border.

Paypal is recommended for fastest shipment (within 1 week of payment). Personal checks and money orders will be accepted, though with a necessary delay in shipment while everything clears the bank.

Thanks so much for your interest, and please check my other listings to find other design prints!
