This thing couldn’t be more fabulous if it came in leopard-spotted patent leather: a blender which is operated by voice! Had a bad day? Scream at your blender and watch it whip you up some therapeutic Margaritas. Had a good day, put the kids to bed, and want to get cosy with The Husband? Purr softly as it gently melds the magical ingredients for a couple of Pink Lady cocktails.

Or, if you prefer an ascetic life of suffering, recite Rage Against the Machine lyrics as it prepares your wheatgrass smoothie.

“The machine allows the user to access sensorial modalities otherwise dormant.”

Huh, I had a boyfriend who did that. Why did I drop him again?

Blendie not only follows verbal commands, it thinks for itself, so presumably once you’ve trained it, every Friday at five it could just trot over to the cabinet and start mixing up a batch of Weekend Wonders. Where do you get one of these genius contraptions? Alas, it’s unique, but you can start with one of these:

Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

Welcome, my friends!

Welcome to the new version of Celebrity Dad Faceoff. Which, ironically, is going to be all about the old. Journey back in time with me, and vote for celebrity dads of the past. For fairness in regards to style of dress, hairstyles and the like, I am going to try to match celebrities within the same time period as much as possible.

So, get ready to discover some new faces, and rediscover others. And listen, just because these men were in their prime decades ago does not make them any less hot. Not in my book, anyway.

Our inaugural contestants had their heydeys back in the 1920’s and 30’s. John Gilbert was a huge star in the silent film era. Ronald Coleman was an Academy Award-winning actor who began acting in silent films as well. Seriously, I’m sort of swooning over their hair alone! Just to let you know, John Gilbert is the one with the black and white photo, while Ronald Coleman’s picture is the sepia-toned magazine cover. Yes, I know they kind of look alike in these photos, but you have to pick one!
