The Macaroni and Cheese button is REAL!

After years of chasing packages that were “lost” by the post office and/or the maintenance office at the Dee-luxe Apartment in the sky, it is a joy and a pleasure to order from the internet and have the boxes on my doorstep when they are supposed to be. Therefore, one of the first things we did as a homeowner was join Amazon Prime.

And it is niiiiice. It’s especially nice for keeping on top of dog food. Running low on the wet food we mix with the dry food to keep Max interested in eating? Order it and it’s here in two days. That said, Amazon has come up with an idea that I thing pushes things a little far. They’ve come up with Dash Buttons – wee wireless devices that you can stick around your house and when you push the button it connects to your wireless network and orders items for you.

What does this mean?

I can now order Macaroni and Cheese with the push of a button.

Don’t get me wrong – I am as lazy as any other person, but when I see I need more of (item) I am literally only steps away from any of my devices that could do the same thing. And I think a button for something as basic and crappy for you as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is not good for us AT ALL.

Besides, I only eat classy sides like Velveeta Shells and Cheese.

However, I do think they are missing the boat on a feminine products dash button. I’d slap that widget right in the bathroom and make the rest of the time until glorious menopause arrives easy-peasy. (It can be sponsored by Discovery’s Shark Week. You’re welcome, Amazon.)

Or a Nyquil button to avoid that panic you feel after you’ve slugged down the last mouthful and are now too inebriated to go get more.

The favorite gift I gave this Christmas

Wherever you are, I hope it’s warmer than here. It was 11 degrees when I woke up, and it’s not rising out of the 20s until tomorrow morning. But the wind chill drops the temperature down to the negatives. I can’t get warm.

I read about CharityPups.com in the gift guide of one of the many magazines I collected around the holidays. The concept is simple: you pay some money, upload pics of your dog(s), and Aaron Kaufman will create a custom digital sketch of your pooch(es). I was looking for something to top off WM’s gift pile, so I decided to take a chance.

LOOK AT THIS!

Isn’t it amazing? He got every aspect of my wee wolves perfect, especially Max’s weird underbite and Ollie’s fuzzy head. This was the best gift idea I’ve had in ages, and if there is a dog lover in your life you should take the plunge and get them this. Best of all, 30% of the profit goes to charity — Aaron picks a different one each month!

Thanks, Aaron!

A grownup Christmas list

Don’t worry, it’s not the sappy song, although we really could use some more common sense and love and a lot less knee-jerky insanity.

*ahem*

Hello, family! It has come to my attention that I’m difficult to shop for, even though it seems all I do all year long is point out things I like. So for your convenience, I have created a wish list on Pinterest. Click the “See on Pinterest” part at the bottom to see the whole thing.

Follow Kimberly D. Russell’s board Kim’s Wishlist on Pinterest.

If you want to donate to charity or organization in my name, that’s cool because I do have plenty of stuff already. Just make sure it’s on the up-and-up first, and neither ends up with the NRA, any political party, or an organization that limits my reproductive rights.

And nobody has to buy me Louboutins, except if I’m dying on Christmas Eve and you want to make them my Christmas Shoes. I can accept that.

Love,
Me.
