To the presses!


Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald The great Gatsby

Baby monitor - Nivea

Nanit – Pro Smart Baby Monitor and Wall Mount – White, $239, Best Buy

Did you even catch the fact that Daisy and Tom are having a baby? The great Gatsby? Obviously, a baby is each’s responsibility, but with the way Daisy wanders around West Egg, a baby monitor with a good scope might make a nice gift. Just so she can check in while she goes back and forth, slowly, in her car.

Grendel’s mother Beowulf

Concha bath bombs

Bath Bombs That Look Like Loaves of Bread, $4.77, FelixModern

After Grendel is nearly torn in two by Beowulf, Grendel’s mother must seek brutal revenge, as a mother’s work simply is never done. Even after she takes the sword to Courage, do you think she gets a thank you? No, the author’s atmosphere is “a sickening, you’re only making it worse”, although Grendel cannot utter those words because he was beheaded by Beowulf, who was shared by his mother. No good deeds…!

Poor Grendel’s mother deserves some of my time. Let these seemingly mean bath bombs flow into the lake and carry their load.

by Mrs. Ramsey in Virginia Woolf to the lighthouse

3D laser cut gift

3D Crystal Rectangle for Mom, $49.99, 3Dlasergifts

The shit Mrs. Ramsay endures, from the men who blow up her house to the self-important pauper she married to. As the heroine and martyr of Virginia Woolf’s masterpiece, she deserves something extra special, something that says “time will go on, leaving us nothing but our memories of us sitting with our baby in the window like 3D laser-cut glass ornaments.”

whiskey cube

Williams-Sonoma Whiskey Cube, Set of 2, $32.95, Williams-Sonoma

This is a conceptual gift we think Bernadette would love to be the reluctant suburban mom cringing at the gendered nightmare of suburban Seattle. Pointless architectural gift. There is a poop in the soup – why not a whiskey cube too.

Cheese sword grater

FELEG DESIGN – Sword-Shaped Stainless Steel Mini Cheese Grater, $12.99, eBay

Very tickled about the marketing of this sword-shaped cheese grater, which declares, “Grated cheese doesn’t have to be a battle.” For the Lannister Genocide Queen, everything should actually be a battle. Thus, the perfect gift.

Why in Emma Donoghue room

Turn your local prison into a jukebox with this awesome custom creation! Pop your favorite tune (you’ll need WiFi access to request and choose a YouTube tune) into the little world you’ve created for your child and reminisce about the outside. I made one using “Just Like A Dream” from The Cure, and it’s great.

Lida has passed the pageant, having two kids, raising two kids, letting those kids go for a few years, and then parenting a bit more.

Note: This is not for psoas beginners. Attendees must have attended a previous psoas workshop.
