Desktop Jellyfish Tank
I didn’t really think of jellyfish as a pet you’d own until I saw Seven Pounds with Will Smith. Much like any other salt water aquarium, this is an expensive hobby and one that can be somewhat short-lived as these Moon Jellyfish will only live for about 3-6 months.
This starter kit comes with a voucher to order one jellyfish (shipped via overnight shipping), but you can buy more of these squishy friends off the Jellyfish Art website for $39 (~1.5” diameter) or $55 (~3” diameter).
- Small Moon Jellyfish, 1.5” diameter (approx.)
- White saucer-shaped body
- Looks like a pulsing full moon
- Four-leaf clover shape on stomach
- Do not sting (or rather, their venom does not affect people)
- Will ship overnight via FedEx and is guaranteed to arrive alive
- Answers to “Squishy”

Tovolo 80-9697 Sphere Ice Molds
Make perfect ice balls with Tovolo’s sphere ice molds. Similar to Muji’s silicon ice ball maker, this mold creates 2.5” ice spheres that will keep your liquor cold longer than traditional ice with little dilution as a result of having a smaller surface area. It produces ice .2” larger than ice made with Muji’s silicon molds. For crystal clear ice, use distilled water unless your tap water is super clean.
A perfect gift for whiskey drinkers. Comes in a set of two ice molds.

Best Xbox Kinect fitness game?
After a quick Google search for the best Kinect fitness games of 2012, I just ordered Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 off Amazon for my parents. This should be interesting.
Also interesting is that Amazon gives you $1 in MP3 credit if you choose the slow 5-7 day shipping instead of the free 2-day shipping with Amazon prime.
