I have a tendency to anthropomorphize things.  I think it's all because of "The Brave Little Toaster."  So, lately I've been seeing things in my house.  They were looking at me.  Except they didn't have eyes.  Well, the do now! 
The scrubby-brush:

The baby wipee warmer:

Child-proof door lock:

Baby monitor (sense a theme?):

Space heater:

Oh, my god, you're going to put my head where??!!


I'd like to give a tip of the hat to Amy Sedaris for putting googley-eyes on a peanut.

So, what are YOU putting Googley-eyes on?

Oh my goodness, the wipe warmer is SO cute! You know this googley eye thing reminds me of the Christopher Walken sketch "Indoor Gardening Tips from a Man Who's Very Afraid of Plants" from SNL. He puts googley eyes on ALL his plants because in order to know where you stand with someone/something you need to be able to look them in the eyes. Plants don't have eyes so to solve the problem he gives them eyes. Too funny.

What a great idea. Makes me want to watch Brave Little Toaster now myself!

Whee, this is excellent! I especially like the last picture of the kitchen appliance.  Grin
I agree totally- the world gets so much better with googly eyes. I tend to put them on everything I can lay my hands on: lighters, notebooks, postcards, purses, wallets, Easter eggs... and I usually go for the many-eyed alien look, so I'm glad there's a store around the corner, that sells them in packages of 100  Tongue

Thanks a lot for the nudge on the Christopher Walken sketch, knittychick,- that's just hilarious! I think I'll be using that idea on plants that look like they intend to die on me Roll Eyes

This is very cool!  Though I wonder why the child-proof door lock is sad!
