Lucy Rowlands is a 24-year-old, UK-based jewelry designer who makes wearable artworks. Her Oral Examination Device is a ring with a mirror attachment that comes with a set of instructions and enables its wearer to expose the interior of her oral cavity to others. “Be prepared for any adverse reaction from onlookers, as the revelation of such an intimate area may promote feelings of shock, disgust, arousal or otherwise.” Her Lollipop Gag combines a real lollipop and a pair of oversized, lacquered red lips; when you’re done sucking the lollipop, you can wear the lips. And her Good for You/Bad for You syringe pins are more Alice in Wonderland than heroin chic. Find out more about Lucy and her work at her blog: The Magpie and the Marble.

Tomorrow, Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States. But he’s already ruling Legoland in California, where master craftsmen/nerds have “pre-enacted” the entire inauguration, including Oprah. Over a thousand mini figures were constructed to build the scene, from the motorcade to the swearing in on the Capitol steps, to the lines at the port-o-potty. However, perhaps the most magnificent details are Aretha Franklin’s giant lego ta-ta’s. She’s stacked! [Telegraph]

Sometimes genius strikes when you least expect it. Like when you’re on your way home from work, and you realize you can’t feel your legs because just one thin pair of tights is protecting them from 30-degree temperatures and wind out the wazoo. I was in this situation just last week, and it occurred to me that I should be wearing more than one pair of tights. Sure, you can double up on black, but pairing crocheted tights with brightly colored ones is the most fun your legs are going to have all winter.

Sure, all anyone is talking about these days relating to Washington, D.C., is the inauguration, but there are other things going on in our nation’s capital. Like giant pandas trying to make babies. Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, two giant panda’s at the National Zoo, tried to mate throughout the day last Thursday without success. “Because competent mating did not occur,” a statement from the zoo said, vets had to insert some of Tian Tian’s semen into Mei Xiang’s uterus. You might be thinking that these kids just need a few more days of love-making, but, unfortunately, scientists believe giant pants are able to conceive only one or two days a year. And while the couple have successfully given birth to one baby panda, in 2005, they weren’t so lucky in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, and 2008. We’ll know in 90 to 185 days whether Mei Xiang is going to give birth. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
