The Container Store has every kind of boxes and storage solution for every room in the house, office or even for travel. I particularly liked the Doorganizer, a hanging reminder/organizer for the doorknob for keys, eyeglasses, cell phones, palm-held devices, music players, even envelopes or newspapers fit into the strip at the back and Purse Organizer, a multiple pocket storage for your most frequently used items when you change your handbag.

Nendo’s chocolate pencils come in a number of cocoa blends that vary in intensity, and chocolate lovers can use the pencil sharpener that comes with the plate to grate chocolate onto their dessert. Oooh, my knees just went weak.

Mary and Max, a made in Australia claymation shown to rave reviews on the opening night at Sundance Festival is a simple tale of pen-friendship between two very different people; Mary Dinkle, a chubby lonely eight year old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horovitz, a 44 year old, severely obese, Jewish man with Asperger’s Syndrome living in the chaos of New York.

Spanning 20 years and 2 continents, Mary and Max’s friendship survives much more than the average diet of life’s ups and downs. Mary and Max is innocent but not naive, as it takes us on a journey that explores friendship, autism, taxidermy, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual difference, trust, copulating dogs, religious difference, agoraphobia and much much more.

It feature the voices of Toni Collette, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eric Bana. If you can’t wait for it to hit the big screen, go here to read the review.
