Nov. 17th, 2007

I was thinking about asking for a watch for Christmas this year. So I thought I would do some research. TWO HOURS LATER and I have an intense need to run screaming from watch people. These watch people are crazy. And I still have no idea what might be the best watch for my interests. Not to mention, 99% of the stuff is about men's watches which are too big.

I so need to go to sleep now!

The TV quote of the week goes to: How I Met Your Mother.

"It's a dog. Pooping on a baby."

That line? Will go down in history. Because you know somebody is trying to film that right this second.

I'm just gonna tell you that the watch I got when I graduated from college in 2000, is the best watch I've ever had....and I'll probably continue to have it forever. It's a Seiko Kinetic...no battery...you body movement causes the apparatus inside to wind the watch and charge itself. You can shake the watch and hear it happening. It is very cool. There are several styles for both men and women. You should check it out.

Go to REI in College Park. Ask for a Timex Indiglo ladies size. Leather strap. Perfect for you, nice and small and dignified and graceful. Like you.

But I'm over leather straps! I want something hefty and metal!

nevertheless, thank you, although graceful is debatable. :)

I did a quick search on "Genesis + Watch" and this is what popped up. o.O

So then I went to Amazon. They're selection is pretty neat!

Amazon.com -> Jewlery & Watches -> Woman's Watches -> Collectible (has the neatest watches). :)

I don't even like watches, but I may just have to get me one of those transformers watches!

Research? Good lo'. Buying a watch is about going to the mall and trying a bunch on, I think. They pretty much all tell time. If you need fancy features, you own a cell phone, computer, and iPod already.

I love Skagen watches. I used to have one with the thin titanium mesh band (sadly lost!). They fit closely to your wrist, and would look less obtrusive than a large watch since you have such small hands.

It's not so much features as the quality of the timekeeping, I guess? The Skagen watches are nice.

A couple of weeks ago, I caught in passing the following disbelieving, indignant line: "The streets are flooded with the ejaculate of the homeless, and you're counting on the police?"

That was in my head for days.

Best watch eva- Swiss Army. I've had mine 5 years and it's burly and gorgeous as ever.

I keep being attracted to the Swiss Army ones, definitely. Burly is a word I like in regards to watches!!! YEAH!

The LED watches at Tokyo Flash look pretty neat. I especially love the idea of this one.

It's disappointing that it's getting harder and harder to afford this old Seiko with a built-in drum machine.

That's so funny. I think it was last winter Pete was looking into a watch for himself and he and Aaron and Patrick would sit around his desk and talk about watches for HOURS. Or it seemed that way to me anyways. :)

I always made fun of them. Cause that's how I roll.

Oh me too. But I make fun of myself the most so it works out well. ;)

First off: Caca Spaniel. I nearly peed myself.

Second: may I suggest reuniting with your first watch love..the Swatch.
