BF gift - Hawk's Eyrie
It's all about releasing your inner sociopath
BF gift
BF & I went back and forth and forth and back over his birthday gift this year. I wanted to get him a high-quality blender - and he wanted one - but he kept complaining that the perfect one was an ugly blender. And how he always got the ugly blender as a child but he wanted to get the pretty one now!

Well, he got the ugly blender anyway. As I predicted, he loved it after he used it. Ugly blenders rule!

[Yes, that is a tachometer on its front. Why do you ask?]

OMG ITS A STEAMPUNK BLENDER. I covet it. Seriously. Where'd he get it?

I got it for him from Amazon. It's the L'Equip 228 R.P.M. Blender. L'Equip is now out of stock, and getting the stir stick seems to be a crap shoot (they stopped making them but are still selling the blenders; customer service explained it to me, but it was confusing), but you can still find them a few places.

It's GREAT for breaking ice for cocktails.

Awesome. I just added it to my Amazon wishlist so I don't forget to try to find one.

If you don't mind, I might also alert various and sundry steampunk communities to its existence, too!

Go right ahead! I even made this post public, if it helps you any.

I think that they're mostly selling them online; I haven't seen any in a store.

That would probably be extremly unwise as well. It bites!
