I do not like PSL

Okay thank you Google for validating me. For at least a few years, I’ve been thinking maybe there’s something wrong with me because of my lack of enthusiasm over the supposedly coveted pumpkin spiced latte marketed so thoroughly well by Starbucks. Finally, I can rest easily with my preference! 😉


Unicorn poop and squatty potties: the greatest viral ad in Internet history


Squatty Potty is a $28 footstool that slides away under your toilet; you use it to bring your knees up to a squatting position while you poop, which makes pooping much, much easier.

But advertising a poop-related product is tricky. Think of all those elliptical commercials for anti-constipation/diarrhea products, the actors’ awkward grimaces, the cutaways to line-art diagrams and dudes in labcoats…

For its ad, Squatty Potty took the unicorn by the horn and squeezed. In an era of 6-second Vines, they recorded an unthinkably long (nearly 3 minutes!) video in which a Ren Faire bard of some description stands beside a unicorn whose poop is rainbow-colored soft-serve ice-cream, and describes how the Squatty Potty unkinks its colon so that it enjoys good flow and doesn’t get any more sparkle-causing hemorrhoids.

There are about ten laugh aloud moments in this one, and the underlying product is definitely sound – getting your knees/pelvis into a squat position really does make pooping a lot quicker, more comfortable and more thoroughgoing. As oblique metaphors go, a soft-serve-pooping unicorn puppet is sheer genius.

Finally, a poop-related video I can enjoy with my whole family! I’m ordering mine today.

Squatty Potty is PURE genius (and good for you).

The doodle will be based off their url, blog title and/or description, and possibly the first couple of posts I see on their blog!

No way! I’d die if I got a blog doodle!

I want a blog doodle of my little girl so I can hear her ask “was dat?” as she instantly realizes… it’s a doodle of her! 🙂

I’ll post a few pictures of her here STAT!

I usually only add them to FB… gotta get back on the tumblr thing.



Just adding this to SHAWNBLOG so I can remove the photo and screenshot from my phone. Malungai is a big deal in Cebu and other parts of the Philippines for soups and other recipes. I had hoped it would be a viable aquaponics crop since I want to find something to grow there and retire…ASAP! 🙂

Here’s more info on the plant and uses:


Okay! I’m weak, I guess?


People who can’t handle all black outfits are weak

My first of many Lyft passengers tonight was in all black. I could barely see her coming from the totally unlit house in a quiet residential area. Then she got in the back seat (okay, I guess) on my side—so she was sitting directly behind me the whole time (creepy, not really okay at all).

That’s all my little rant is about here. The lady in all black seemed cool and nice enough. But seriously, if you’re going to hop in a Lyft by yourself, consider riding up front. If you’re going to jump in the back, that’s totally fine. Go ahead, act like you’re in a limo! You’re spending at least $5 on that ride, right?


So I’m not the only one that likes them? Awesome

I don’t recall what this was in reference to because we were out of the country for a month. Something from there? Probably not since I think I only made two posts the whole time. If you’re still reading, please remind me! 🙂


FBI replies to Stingray Freedom of Information request with 5,000 blank pages



The Stingray – a fake cellphone tower that gathers identity/location
information on everyone who passes it – is the worst-kept secret in
law enforcement, but that doesn’t stop feds from going to absurd lengths
to pretend they don’t use them.

We know that police departments have to sign non-disclosure agreements
when they buy Stingrays, and we’ve even seen them lie to judges about
how they acquired their evidence to maintain their non-disclosure
obligations. We’ve seen US Marshalls raid city cops to steal Stingray evidence before it could be introduced in court (even more dismaying – it worked, and the case against the cops collapsed because the evidence had been disappeared down the Marshalls’ memory hole).

Since 2014, Muckrock has been firing out Freedom of Information Act requests about Stingrays to agencies at all levels of government, using crowdfunded dough to pay for it.

The fun-loving feds at the FBI have turned over 5,000 pages of Stingray
records in response to one set of Muckrock requests – but they redacted
virtually every word on every page first.
