Call me crazy (hahaha very funny), but I love this Wampa Rug. It is an officially licensed Star Wars product made by ThinkGeek.com (gotta love those geeks).

I already have the TaunTaun sleeping bag (and I have to make a lightsaber noise every time I open it too). It keeps me toasty warm on those cold Hoth winter nights.

Apparently the slave girl is not included with the Wampa Rug, sorry fan boys.

Iams Home 4 the Holidays officially opened its “doors” October 1st, the start of national Adopt a Pet Month and runs through the Holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years) ending January 4, 2011.

Their goal this year is to find homes for 1.5 million animals. If that wasn’t a lofty enough idea they are also striving to donate 5 million meals to shelter animals! They are doing this because they understand not everyone can adopt and for those of us that still wish to participate we can do so by helping them reach that goal if not the adoption goal.

To date the Iams Home 4 the Holidays program has found homes for 4.6 million animals and enriching the lives of just as many people in the process!

“We’re very proud of the fact that we’ve helped more than 4.6 million animals find homes over the last 11 years,” said Maria Beatriz Rodriguez, Iams general manager. “Our core mission has been and remains to reduce pet homelessness through adoption.

So you want to do something to help? Head over to facebook and “like” the Iams page, which by the way also has great tips and information on how to help. For now though simply clicking “like” will donate a meal. Doing that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and all you had to do was something you do daily anyways. Can’t get any easier than that. Take it a step further and invite your friends to do the same, each new like means another meal.

Dogs Delight Wheat Grass Kit I bought the Dog’s Delight Sprout & Grow Garden for my cats (because I think cats like to eat grass as much if not more than dogs – just sayin’). It is made by Dunecraft the makers of fun, educational products for kids. You can find the items any where online or in Toys R Us stores.

I was actually a little shock when I opened up the kit to find a very small package of wheat grass seeds inside. I think it was less than a gram and turned out to be only 8 seeds. I have grown wheat grass numerous times before and I knew there was no way in heck eight blades of grass would satisfy three kitties. So I called the company.

The guy I spoke with obviously has never grown wheat grass in any form let alone their actual product. He told me that multiple shoots would come off each seed (I know this not to be true, but did not feel like arguing at that point). So I planted the seeds. I had sprouts in a week. I trim them every day so I can see if they will spread. It has been almost three weeks now and no sign of additional shoots on any of the seeds.

What was advertised vs what actually grew.

You tell me does my wheat grass look anything like what the product packaging and website promised me it would?
