I Like It When That Happens...

Okay, I started the day with three problems on my plate, which gave me a sleepless night last night. All three have now been resolved satisfactorily (yay me!) and I'm heaving a huge sigh of relief.
Of course,I have accumulated a couple more problems along the way so I'm not out of the woods yet. But at least I can see the clearing from here.

Who Buys This Stuff Anyway?

One of those homeware catalogues was at my door when I got home tonight. The ones that offer all those clever little gadgets to make housework (gasp!) easier, and cooking (do what?) less of a chore. And truly, some of their stuff is pretty useful.
But I'm stuffed if I know why anyone would pay $49 for a "Happy Birthday" singing, rotating cake stand with lights, that looks like a reject from the props department of Close Encounters. Or $40 for the showerhead attachment to "Give Your Shower a Double Head".
Then there's the curved clear plastic hairspray face shield, so you can see while you spray your hair. And the slip-on shoe shufflers, so you too can "Wear muddy boots indoors!"
I'm just wondering WHY, here.
