Stanley Flashlight Watch Is Overkill For Most Wrists

This watch from Stanley has something special that most watches don’t. Nope, it’s not a built-in GPS, digital camera or a mobile phone, but a built-in flashlight!

  • 12:47 @JessicaDoyle Kinda funny because in Taipei, there’s no snow. In fact, it’s rarely below 10C. Quebec is another story though! #
  • 12:48 @itsmesarahrae he’s cute. Ive got a Frenchie and they’re great dogs. You can’t take them on runs though #
  • 12:49 @itsmesarahrae that’s like dog torture! #
  • 12:52 its the day after my ginormous fall and its feels like a truck drove over me. I cant sneeze because my ribs are bruised. #
  • 12:54 the fall involved me sprinting after Spike to stop him from playing with other dogs, not seeing a step, and falling on my knees & chest #
  • 12:55 @itsmesarahrae When I was in Montreal, I was concerned with his feet freezing. He can tough the cold & snow though. #
  • 12:56 @itsmesarahrae Your Boston is pretty cute. #
  • 12:57 @itsmesarahrae Here’s one of Spike: wp.me/pWvW-no #
  • 13:01 @itsmesarahrae yep he’s part frog, bat, and dog. He also purrs/snorts a lot like a cat, but rarely barks. #
  • 14:07 spent $30 recharging my pay-as-you-go phone in June. Just spent $17 to recharge. That’s one thing I dont miss from Canada #
  • 14:08 Spending $80-400 on a monthly cell phone plan. In Taiwan, I spend about $20 every six months on my phone. #

  • 22:51 @wobblesmccoy la grosse gamick. Nope, I think it stems from game. #
  • 22:53 @wobblesmccoy water thing? I haven’t been able to find out the etymology of the word “gamick” #
  • 22:54 @wobblesmccoy amazon. secret shoppers. They have to because of all of the scammers. Or to try and keep scammers out. #
  • 23:00 @wobblesmccoy Im not selling my soul on ebay, but Im selling some high-end bikes, not on ebay either though. #
  • 23:51 @JessicaDoyle still about 10-13C here. #
  • 23:51 @wobblesmccoy believe me your Blackberry is gay! mofo! I rediscovered #TheLonelyIsland because of that. Nathalie’s rap is hilarious. #
  • 23:52 @wobblesmccoy nope. I wouldn’t sell my soul for anything. I believe in souls. #

  • 00:25 @wobblesmccoy its only 00:23! :) #
  • 00:38 @wobblesmccoy started to get a cold right after Christmas. Wearing triple layers inside. I feel like an idiot. #
  • 00:38 @wobblesmccoy Four scarves, even with the heater on. OK, so that’s not true anymore. Two layers, two scarves. #
  • 00:42 Gravida Nurse: Let’s Play Prenatal Tamagotchi!: wp.me/pWvW-37Q #
  • 00:44 Notion Ink’s Adam: Throw Another Tablet On The Pile: wp.me/pWvW-37S #
  • 00:45 @wobblesmccoy I gotta start again too. It’s been two months since I stopped. I need to start biking and running. #
  • 00:46 @wobblesmccoy did you see #Moon? Its really good. I loved it. Im listening to #ClintMansell OST of the movie&it makes me want 2 see it again #
  • 00:47 @wobblesmccoy budget of #Moon? 1% of #Avatar, namely 5 million dollars. #
  • 00:54 @wobblesmccoy nope dude! Moon! bit.ly/LRM9d I wouldnt watch Twilight. Actually Ive seen the 1st one and disliked it quite a bit. #
  • 00:55 @wobblesmccoy I’ve got 15lbs to lose. I usually just run. I’m an endurance freak, but I wanted to get into the gym as well, but havent. #
  • 00:58 @wobblesmccoy I have to go again, to see Avatar. Maybe next weekend. #
  • 01:08 @wobblesmccoy There are blu-ray rips out, easy to download. The movie actually uses miniatures for the moon scenes, which look great #
  • 01:21 @wobblesmccoy Hard to say, a little bit, not nothing much. Budget was 5 million. #
  • 12:19 my cat just puked because she’s been eating ribbons again. She always eats them. Bright, shiny things, gotta eat! Then puke or poop. #
  • 12:28 This morning while walking my dog I ran & tripped. I fell on my chest and knees. I didnt have a scratch but I havent fallen down this hard #
  • 12:29 in a while. I might have some bruised ribs. This happened because I didnt drink any tea/coffee this morning and wasnt woken up #
  • 12:30 I pierced my Arc’Teryx Alpha SV hardshell jacket. It’s a small hole that leads into a pocket, so the integrity of the shell isnt compromised #
  • 12:31 Still it’s super annoying. Ive only had that jacket for a year. I guess I was lucky that it didnt rip. I wonder what the warranty is on this #
  • 15:34 felt like a truck was driven over me. Its not that bad, but it sure hurts. At least its not like I feel like Ive been stabbed=broken ribs #
