Wipe Your Feet, Please

My daily email from The Bargainist featured this personalized initial doormat as Walmart's "Value of the Day" for $16. Free shipping if you want to pick it up in-store, but I sprung for the additional $.97 shipping charge. (Anything to avoid going into a Walmart. Sorry if you're a fan.)

I don't know yet about the quality, but custom doormats can run a lot more than this, and it's hard for me to pass up something personalized. Although I am a little worried - after you enter the initial and name and verify that it's correct, you don't see it again anywhere during the checkout process or if you try to edit your shopping cart. I'm crossing my fingers that it comes out right.

What do you think? Is it dangerous to share your last name on your front stoop? We live in a gated community, so we don't get solicitors, but I don't know.

In other news, I can't believe I just wrote a post about doormats.

Here's something to spice up this otherwise boring post. I caught Lady Gaga on Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating, and Babs brought up that there was a controversial line in the lyrics to "Poker Face".

I thought it was going to be "Russian roulette is not the same without a gun" since I think that's tres dangerous. But no, it was "bluffin' with my muffin". (If Barbara Walters can say it on national TV, then I think it's okay to post. And now that I know the meaning, it was so funny/weird to hear BW say it.)
