Don't ask me why, but today I was thinking about the alarm clock I had in high school. I could ALMOST picture it in my head and it made me smile. I remember I thought it was VERY cool and if I closed my eyes and concentrated, I could almost hear R.E.M.'s "Orange Crush" blaring from it on WDEK-92.5 FM (which is apparently now a Spanish broadcasting station). And I remembered it was cube-shaped and had a plug-in for ear phones (super cool). I could remember doing my spiral-permed hair HUGE in front of my dresser mirror while Peter, Cory and the gang waited impatiently for me outside in the green Impala or Buick or whatever it was...it was green (I suffered from chronic lateness in HS..I blame the high-maintenance big hair). And then I could imagine us driving to school with INXS playing in the car. Oh - good times!
Anyway - tonight I found myself STILL thinking about that darn alarm clock! I just HAD to find a picture of it so I could accurately remember it. I can't admit how much time I spent with Google on this one (it takes awhile when you don't know the brand, not sure of the color...just that it was cool and cube-shaped. Do you KNOW how many alarm clocks were cube-shaped in the 80's?!
But my efforts were worth it....I found her! (and now I want her). Here she is...the super-duper cool P'Jammer! (how 80's is that name even?!)
I forgot she was multi-colored (see? cool!)..and I was right! a headphone jack right there on the front! LOVE! How can I get one?!
Go HERE to see her in action! (I totally need to get a life).
And now I'm going to join the "P'Jammers for Life" group on Facebook (think I'm making that one up? Go look! I dare you!)

If money, greed, practicality, etc. were no object....here's my Christmas wish list:
A live-in maid
An iPad and cute case (or the more affordable yet still out-of-budget Nook)
A cute (and soft) hat and mittens
A super-plush Snuggie (cranberry or tan or chocolate)
Pretty smelling lotion
iTunes gift card
A really good chocolate bar (Godiva or the like)
