What? You’re on Twitter but Your Houseplant is Not? Tsk Tsk

I love ThinkGeek.com.  It’s chock-full of great tee shirts, gadgets, toys and electronics that are sure to fill your geek heart with lust and envy. They seem to have first dibs on some great new technologies and they put them out there for the rest of us to buy. Reasonably priced, too.

This caught my eye today:

Who wouldn’t want a plant to post its status to Twitter so you know when to water it?

I know this sounds like a fun toy, but keep your eyes open. We’re going to see a lot more of this sort of thing. Getting status updates delivered to our inboxes and cell phones in real time will be commonplace before long. So go ahead – be the first one at your office with a twittering plant! : )

I’m Blogging This

That’s what my new tee shirt will say when it arrives. In an effort to kill time while I’m not feeling well, I spent a good, long time browsing the ThinkGeek website before deciding on the tee:


Here’s what’s new since last time I checked out their site: you can make a wish list. Great idea for people like me who are tempted by, but not ready to commit to, a number of cool geek toys. Do I really want the USB lava lamp? The ambient weather-forecasting umbrella? The LED necklace? How about the do-it-yourself hologram kit? There is just way too much cool stuff, so I’ve put my favorites on my wish list for now while I weigh out my choices.

If nothing else, browsing the site will get your geeky creativity flowing.
