this post is brought to you by the letters I and R and the number 4

That would be Insomnia, Robots and 4am... the time I realized that whole sleep thing just wasn't working out for me.

Why Robots, you ask? (I mean, the rest is pretty self-explanatory, right?) Well, for one thing I'm working on Mr. Roboto from Knit Picks right now as a gift (actually there will be two robots in the end) for the boys of a friend that I'll be visiting short(ish)ly.

And, sometimes in the infinite wisdom of insomnia, I surf etsy for new fun things, like Sleepy Robot 13. I first saw Robot and Toaster are Friends and instantly fell in love:

Really, how could you not?!

Another personal fave: Robot in a Dragon Suit:

And one that I know will be popular (even if not my fave):

Super Mario Robot!

Enough with my late night / early morning rantings... have you found any unsung etsy gems lately?

I love the robot with the toaster because that pretty much describes how I feel about my own toaster (I know that's a bit sad. But it's so shiny and reliable.)
