It’s Saturday night. The tasty little dumpling you met at Comic Con is coming over for some of your famous Toro Scallion handrolls (just a little recipe you picked up on your last trip to Ichikawa). The sake is chilled. The table is set. Your Pac-Man Cutting Board is ready to go. Now all you need is a little mood lighting. Why not light up a couple of 80’s Ghost lamps? These awesome little lights pay homage to those ghouls you loved to hate back in you Pac-man playing days (aka last Tuesday). Choose from Blinky, Pinky, Inky, or Clyde (ok, kidding, that’s yellow, white, red or blue). Very romantic…well, to a chick you met at Comic Con, anyway.
A Relic From The Summer Of ’69
As you’ve told us in the past, we’re not supposed to mention your…mild to moderate obsession with Bryan Adams, and should keep talk about it to a minimum. However, we simply had to say something when we saw this little cherry from the Summer of ’69 pop up on eBay Motors. The 1969 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 ($87,500) is truly a vision, with a breathtaking body designed by Automotive Hall of Famer Giorgetto Guigiaro, a black leather interior, wood-rimmed steering wheel and sparkling chrome, all in tiptop condition. Add Five Star alloy wheels, a factory four-tip Ansa exhaust, 4.7-liter Weber-carbed V8 engine with 335 hp, and Please Forgive Me, but we think you’ll be in Heaven.
The Key To Self-Defense
True, your MMA fighting background and intimate knowledge of deadly pressure points is usually enough to get you out of a jam, but sometimes, when you’re feeling lazy, nothing beats a good old shiv. Keep one by your side at all times, with the Garrett Wade Key Pocket Knife (27.00). With the looks, weight and size of a regular old key, this little German-made nugget can slip easily onto your keychain, so you can slip in anywhere with it, and no one will be the wiser. Also comes in handy if you just feel like whittling something out on the front porch.
