Charles & Marie: Tengu
I love you little buddy... Working on your PC can sometimes be a lonely experience. Not anymore... now you can buy yourself a new friend in the form of Tengu! Tengu is a fun USB-powered character that lights up and lip-syncs to music, your voice, or whatever noise happens to be around at the time. Tengu has slew of different facial expressions that love lip-syncing. He'll be your new BFF in no time! When it's quiet Tengu will fall asleep - as soon as he detects noise (or you blow on him) he'll wake up again. Tengu simply plugs into your computer's USB drive. No software is required! Tengu is a fun little guy who guarantees to bring a smile to that depressing little cubical of yours!
Magritte would have owned one of these

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
