uZap

uZap, otherwise known as the green and white flailing thing in Brookstone. :)

Guess what? It may be $200 at Brookstone, but at the Brookstone OUTLET is was only $50. Guess who has one now? I'm rolling on the floor turning it on and watching it walk away. I haven't even gotten around to putting it on my back yet. *laugh*

It was a fun day. We got the kids around and went to the Rainforest Cafe for lunch, out at Grapevine Mills outlet mall. We ate WAY too much, and as ALWAYS in that place, spent a fortune. It didn't help that the attached store had a whole leopard section on sale. I almost got the leopard cowboy hat, but ended up with a pair of lounge pants, a halter top, and a black t-shirt trimmed in leopard print. I'm sad, I know it.

Scott went by a knife store and bought two HUGE swords, and a hand axe. Very nice display pieces and he talked the guy down over half. Only problem was that our day was then over because we couldn't very well carry about five foot steel swords in the mall.

The liquor store called our name on the way home, and I got some of that yummy vanilla run that georgiaskydiver introduced me to. Time to strap the uZap on (MY BACK!), make myself a drink, and maybe play some computer games while listening to my iPod. Sounds like a good night to me!

Okay, what in the WORLD is a uZap?

THIS is a uZap. Wonderful little back massager. It's so powerful that when I had it on my lower back, sitting in my recliner, the ENTIRE CHAIR was vibrating. Scott could see the shaking from across the room. It pretty much gave my whole body a massage while sitting here.

The funny thing was, when GS and I were at the mall, we went in Brookstone and I made the mistake of turning one on. It started flailing like a dying fish and walked itself right off the shelf. I was laughing so hard I almost couldn't speak. I could only tell her to watch and point at it when I turned it on.

I know they thought we were nuts, but now I have my own.

did you wear it around your seat to invigorate gluteal muscle groups?

Not yet, but that sounds fun, doesn't it? :)

My only question - why in the WORLD is it 200 dollars?

That's in line with other comparable massage items - calf massagers, some of the nicer shiatsu back massagers. Those massage chairs are anywhere from $1000-5000.

We're not talking something that simply vibrates. This has multiple motors, so that it is pounding (at different strengths and speeds) on different sides to work better. It feels awesome, especially since it shakes my chair so much that when I lay my head back I can't see straight.

Oh Dear God! How did I miss this?

When I stop crying enough to see again, I'll respond.

Oh. My. F'ing. God!!!!

I'm not sure how you missed it, but it sure had me laughing how the whole chair would shake when that thing was turned on. *laugh*
