Out of curiosity. . . .

Is there anyone out there that still uses one of these?

The "world famous" orange peeler. Obtained at a Tupperware party I'm sure.

I have a couple of these things but haven't used one in a long time.  Angry and I got some oranges that are basically impossible to peel so I thought I'd dig one out and try it again.

I loved it!  What you see in the picture took me less than minute to accomplish.  The other two pieces of peel were off after I took the photo and I ate my orange in peace.  No struggling, no squirting juice in my eye, and no "fuck this, I give up" rants.

Technology. . . not always related to electronic gadgets!

Shopping for "unmentionables."

I was browsing on eBay for some Gossamer items today.

No, not the material.  The monster.

As in:

"My, I bet you monsters lead interesting lives."

He's the red monster from Warner Brothers and appears in a couple of cartoons with Bugs Bunny.  I love this guy.  I've named a cat after him and have collected Gossamer stuff for many years.

Anyway, I typed "Gossamer" in the search box and many, many pairs of underwear came up in my list of items.  There were thongs, boy shorts, bikinis, and hi-cut panties to choose from.  You name a color; I think it was on there.

Now, who buys (or sells for that matter) underwear on eBay?  I did not see any of the descriptions stating "new."  This just doesn't seem right.  Almost sort of naughty or even nasty in a way. 

To each his own but I'll shop at a local store to get my unmentionables.  It just feels a bit safer that way.
