I will admit, WS is selling an R2-D2 Instant Pot that I would buy in a damn second if I didn't have an IP already. Though it is "only" $100 instead of the $678.99 one might expect.


It pairs well with the baby yoda juicer.

Did you see the link for all the star wars branded stuff?

I was all ready to fork over all the money for the Chewbacca branded InstaPot before learning it isn't even coated with fur. Not even faux fur!

Guess I'll just have to settle for the Han Solo Carbonite Roaster. It's twice the price of a normal LeCreuset roaster which is 4 times the coast of a normal cast iron roaster, but do any of them come with Han Solo frozen in Carbonite? Nope!

I want the R2D2 popcorn maker as much as I've ever wanted anything in my life

I have a Death Star Bluetooth speaker in my office. It floats above the base and constantly rotates. It’s pretty sweet

I'm sure we all know that Gal Gadot and other celebrities put out a beautiful multi-artist rendition of "Imagine" a couple weeks ago. I dismissed it at first but have to admit am impressed by the positive impact it has on morale. I put it on the other day while in line to get into the grocery and then while waiting to pay, there was definitely a powerful and empowering feeling of hope and community that filled the air. I could tell alot of people were smiling behind their masks or bandanas and got the sense if the times permitted pretty much everyone would have joined along. This is the full version so you can share with those you love:



I really hope they do "Firework" by Katy Perry next

My daughter, who was born 9 weeks early at the end of December, is finally off of oxygen and doing great. Having a preemie with underdeveloped lungs during a global pandemic has been... terrifying.

In Spain, a taxi driver was known for taking patients to the hospital, free of charge. One day, he got a call to pick up a patient from the hospital. When he arrived, doctors and nurses surprised him with a standing ovation, plus an envelope of money.
