I kind of like watches.  Well, more than kind of.  I really, really like watches.  I’m not crazy or obsessive or anything, but I really have an appreciation for great watches.  Sure, I’ll read WatchTime magazine.  Sure, I’ll surf the used pieces on eBay.  It’s a sickness, and I’m infected.

I thought it would be fun (at least for me) to share with the Life Tussle audience some of my favorite watches.  I’ll just keep it simple and give you a little background and why I like it.  I’ll even throw in a photo.  Come on, it will be fun.

So, for the first Favorite Watch Friday post, I’ve selected a classic…

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence says Tara Reid reeked of booze and cigarettes – In her defence, Reid claims that booze and cigarettes were the only thing that could mask the overwhelming stench of abject failure and total shamefaced disgrace.


China set to unblock “Great Firewall” during Bejing Olympics– Millions of Chinese have two weeks to google search how Westerners get rid of all their unwanted female children.

Winona Ryder was caught shoplifting makeup from a CVS. – Her excuse last time was she was “researching a role,” this time she claimed she “didn’t know how that got there,” once she blows through “holding it for a friend,” expect the next excuse to invole either magnets or tiny little men in her pockets. – But seriously, isn’t the real story here that Winona uses drugstore cosmetics? Doesn’t she have any celeb-u-status left to score some high-end serious swag?

You don’t need to watch television but if you do, sometimes you can learn things. And in general, I like learning. BoyHowdy, delivering new information to me via a box full of multi-colored moving images is the way to go! Passive learning. Look at me sprawled out on the couch…Learning!

Some Highlights from THE BEAUTIES:

  • I literally cannot tell time. I can stare at a clock…And I know the steps…People have tried to teach me..It’s just that…I’d rather look at a digital clock.
  • I think my IQ’s a little below average. Probably around 200 or so.
  • My worst subject in school was history. The last 5 presidents were Bush, Clinton, Nixon, Theodore (oh that was Roosevelt), and then it was…Higley. Yeah. Those were the last five presidents.
  • It’s not that I am not smart. I just don’t know stuff.
  • I get my looks from my mom who’s from Egypt, which is in South Africa.
  • Just because I’m beautiful doesn’t mean I’m more than just a pretty face.  – TOUCHE!

Chindogu is the Japanese for “weird tool” or loosely, the idea of a useless art.

There are apparently rules for what can or cannot be considered chindogu.

  1. A chindogu cannot be for real use.
  2. A chindogu must exist.
  3. Inherent in every chindogu is the spirit of anarchy.
  4. Chondogu are tools for everyday use. 
  5. Chindogu are not for sale.
  6. Humor must not be the sole reason for creating chindogu.
  7. Chindogu are not propaganda.
  8. Chindogu are never taboo.
  9. Chindogu cannot be patented.
  10. Chindogu are without prejudice.

 Because it’s still cold and flu season, we find this could be useful.


Some people I know wouldn’t mind looking foolish for the sake of convenience. I personally don’t mind the extra step of pulling tissues or a hanky out and exerting the extra energy of bringing it all the way to my nose. I can handle that amount of work.
