Hint: there is a song about it
Happy Friday everyone! How fast time flies! It's almost the end of the month/end of the year! Where did the time go? But then again, when you hit a certain age, time just seems to go by all that much faster! It's all downhill from here...

Anyway, here's the hint for today's thingamajig:

this thingamajig
delights the young and the old,
even when it's cold!

What is this?

*And because this is the last photo of the year, I will give you 2 points if you guess it correctly!

I want to be big!

Garfield comic strip.
Just so you know, gaining a few extra pounds over the holiday season isn't so bad. You will have extra padding to keep you warm, there's more to love...

Photo #325 Revealed

It was a tripod.
With this new toy, I can experiment with night photography!

Hint: there are ones that are taller than me!
Hello again! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit me! It's so nice of you! Today's thingamajig is something that I received as an Christmas gift! I must be loved, as this can be quite expensive. 

Here the haiku hint:

it doesn't have arms
it has feet, but cannot walk
and it does not talk

What is it?

It was a beer bottle.

Hint: ignore those numbers
Hey everyone! I'm back! Sorry I took a couple of days off without telling you. Hope you all had a fun and memorable Christmas! Did you get some really awesome gifts worth mentioning? I got some fun gifts, which will be revealed "thingamajig" style. 

Anyway, here's the haiku hint for today's thingamajig:

warm ones are no good
in fact, they are kinda gross
keep it cold, silly!

What is this?

Photo #323 Revealed

It was [Santa's] beard.

Merry Christmas, everyone!! Hope Santa brought you all of that you wished for!

p.s doesn't he look like the perfect Santa? And his beard was real!

hint: it's real
T'was the night before Christmas...and I'm taking a little break from all the holiday preparations to say let you all know that I'm still alive and doing well! I didn't pass out from eating too much! But it could happen. The food is the best part of the holidays, don't you think? 

Anyway, today's thingamajig is an easy one. I don't think you need any more hints. What is it?

Happy Christmas Eve!

Photo #322 Revealed

They were xmas gift tags/stickers.

Photo #321 Revealed

Photo of the day, #321

Hint: sometimes they are shiny
This is one of the thingamajigs of the day:

it sure acts like hair!
all that cutting and trimming
but it is not hair.

What is this thingamajig?

And don't forget to take a look at the other photo of the day...

Happy Two-sday! 

Photo of the day, #320

Hint: comes in all shapes, sizes and colours!
If I still have any readers out there, hi there! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Hope you are having a good day so far! I apologize for not having any photos for you to guess for the past few days. Did you miss me? I've been pretty busy with holiday preparations and today is my brother's birthday! I still have to go shopping for his gift. 

And I decided not to drop "Two-sday." A few people commented last week that they like this double feature. So I will continue with posting two photos on Tuesdays. Double the photos, double the fun, right?

Anywho, this is the hint for first thingamajig of the day:

Glass ones are pretty
but I would drop and break them!
I'm way too clumsy!

What is this thingamajig?

Photo #319 Revealed

It was a pair of binoculars.
When I see binoculars, I can't help but think of  Disney-Pixar's Wall-E. Isn't he the cutest little robot? If you haven't seen this movie, I would highly recommend it. It's not just a kids movie. It will appeal to everyone. It may not be a Christmas movie, but now is the perfect time to watch this. It just might remind you to be more aware of your own consumption during the holidays. Christmas is quite commercialized, especially in North America and we tend to over consume.

Hint: an outdoor toy, perhaps?
It's Friday! I'm ready for the weekend! Can I just say I'm impressed by bloggers who are able to post daily, especially during the holiday season. I apologize in advance if I'm not able to to post daily in the next little while. There's only 9 more days until Christmas and there's still a lot to do to get ready! 

Today's thingamajig:

a gift idea
for the young and young at heart
hope they aren't creepers!

What is it?

I'm always nice! What about you?

Grand Avenue comic.

Photo #318 Revealed

It was correction fluid aka white-out, liquid paper.
You know that marketing works when you refer to correction fluid as "white-out" and other brand names...

Hint: it can fit inside your pocket
[Guess what that photo is. It's wordless Wednesday. No hints. But, bonus points if you get it right!]

Photo #317 Revealed

It was a poinsettia. 
These plants are so festive and so easy to care for! And as a bonus, they last a long time! 

Photo #316 Revealed

For tennis, badminton, swatting flies, or whatever. ;)

Don't forget to guess the other photo of the day! Happy Two-sday!

Photo of the day, #316

Hint: it's could be used indoors or outdoors
Happy Two-sday! Like last Tuesday, I got two photos for you to guess. I was thinking about cancelling "Twos-day." Most of you just guess the one photo, anyway. What do you think? Do you like Two-sdays, where I feature two photos instead of the usual one? Do you even care?

The first photo is an easy one. I don't think you need any more hints. 

Photo #315 Revealed

It was a rice krispies square.  Holiday edition.

And for those that haven't seen this before, rice krispies is a type of cereal made of rice. You can eat them out of the box with some milk. Or you can make them into squares by melting butter and marshmallows together and mixing them with the rice krispies.

I do wonder if people outside of North America can buy Rice Krispies...

Hint: it's red and green for the holidays

Hint: it's stackable
Hello readers! How's your Saturday so far? I hope you aren't spending all of your weekend on your computer. Anyway, today's thingamajig is a common household item. Most people have a few on hand on any given day. they are inexpensive and you can buy them by the dozen. What is this?

Photo of the day, #313

Hint: they are usually packaged in a box
Happy Friday! It's been a busy day for me. I'm been making cookies so that I can hand them out to the less fortunate tomorrow.  No haiku hint today. That requires a bit of thinking. But I will give you a few hints. It's a very common household item. I keep my in my cupboard. You could also keep this in a drawer. They come in many different sizes and have many uses. What is it?

Hi there! You might have seen me around in your local grocery store.

Well hello there! Nice of you to visit me. I'm happy to hear that some of you appreciate my hints, even if they don't always make sense to you. 

So here's the hint for today's thingamajig:

it's so flexible
it can beat any gymnast
into submission

What is it?

Photo #311 Revealed

It was a pair of tweezers.
this is what we do
in the name of vanity
no pain, no gain, right?

I don't know what's worse: tweezing or waxing! They both hurt like crazy!

Photo of the day, #311

Hint: it's a small tool that fit in your pocket
Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a super duper day so far! As you might know, today is "Wordless Wednesdays" in the blogosphere. In case you are need to blogging, this means that on Wednesdays, bloggers usually just post a photo or a video without any written content.  And this means that I won't be giving you any more hints today. Besides, I've been too easy on you. You need to think a little to get those brain cells working. 

So much for being wordless. I can't stop typing...

What is this?

Photo #310 Revealed

It was a lens caps.
By goods, I meant my lenses.  Don't feel stupid if you didn't get this one right. It was a tough one. 

Photo #309 Revealed

It was eye shadow.
Close enough if you said "make up."

The second thingamajig of the day:

(and I don't mean your privates)

Don't forget to scroll down and guess the other thingamajig.

Have a great day! And don't forget to eat your veggies.

hint: it could be kept indoors or outdoors
Hey there! Hope you are having a fun filled weekend so far! I was at a holiday party yesterday and I think I got food poisoning. And no, I wasn't drinking.  I'm not sure what it is about me. No one else around me had any issues. I guess I have a weak stomach or something. I'm still recovering today, and I will be drinking lots of water to keep me hydrated. 

Anyway, here's today's hint:

not much to do here
just sitting in my corner
won't you talk to me?

Who am I?

It's LL Cool J shirtless!

From Google Images.
This sexy mystery man is of course LL Cool J aka Ladies Love Cool James aka James Todd Smith. 

Anyone remember "I Need Love?" Ladies loved him back in 1987. And 24 years later, ladies still love him! He is sexier than ever! His wife is one lucky lady!

You can see more of his hotness in the primetime tv show NCIS: Los Angeles

And for you boys/men out there who want a body like his, check out the book he wrote with his personal trainer. It looks like he knows a thing or two about working out.


Saturday, December 3, 2011

For bonus points, guess who this is.

sexy mystery man
Remember how I said that there are some sexy bald men out there? He is one of them!

He is a talented rapper, successful businessman and actor.  He has appeared in numerous movies and is currently on one of primetime tv's hottest show. And like most celebrities these days, he has launched a clothing line. Sorry ladies. He's married and has 4 children.

Who is this hottie?

He will be revealed in tomorrow's edition of "Sexy Shirtless Sundays."

Hint: it's not candy
Happy Friday! Hope you are having a good one so far. Today is a windy day. Not a good day to wear a hat or a toupee. I wonder how many people actually wear toupees. If I were a guy I would rather just shave my head and go bald than wear a hair piece. Besides,  some bald guys are hot. I will post one up for tomorrow's mystery man of the week.

Today's thingamajig:

you can see them now
way up high, and eye level
there is no escape

What is it?

The spirit of Christmas?

Garfield comic.
Oh, Garfield! You are such a silly cat!

Hint: made of plastic
Hello, December! I welcome you with opening arms. December is a time of celebration, but also a time for supporting those in need of a little extra love. You may have noticed people wearing a red ribbon today. Today is World AIDS Day. Each year on December 1st, people around the world unite to fight HIV and to show their support for people living with HIV. Take this time to educate yourself about how HIV is transmitted and how you can take measures to protect you and your partner. 

Anyway, back to today's thingamajig:

waiting patiently 
for someone to pick me up
holding me real close

Who am I?
