Hey! What's that on my usually inauspicious mantle?

Why, it's me! With a candle on top!

I have the ugliest profile, evar. And now I have a cherished keepsake to commemorate it for always.

It's my own personal pirolette.

aww Dan, be nice to yourself--you have a great profile! (made even better w/ wax on top!)

Did a doting fan finally buy you one of these? Or did you purchase it yourself?

You do have a great profile.

By Blogger the other sarah, at 6:29 PM  

Purchased myself with a little leftover tax refund.

By Blogger dan, at 7:31 PM  

Oh, cool...

By Anonymous Darcy's Twin, at 7:58 PM  

Took you long enough to get one. What no K-Mack one for the other side?

By Blogger stapler, at 8:47 PM  

Seriously. How did you do that? Now you are not only funny - but magic too. But who would make the connection?! How did you even see that?

He had to go to this machine shop and hold his face in a lathe while the guy worked the machine- Juuuuuuust kidding- check the link- you send them a photo and they make the darn thing! What a kick, huh? I think hte lower lip on Dan's needs to protrude a TAD bit more, tho.....

That is so interesting and creepy at the same time. (I'm not calling you creepy.) But now that I look at that thing all I can see is your profile instead of the candle holder. It's TWO DANS! Staring at EACH OTHER!

IT's DAD!!!

You have dad's profile. Which is nothing to scof at cuz' dad is quite a dashing man. Which is where you get it. If you got it from mom (like me) you'd have a lovely turkey gobbler neck thing on your profile.

I do think Kmack needs one for the other side.

By Blogger Colleen, at 9:37 AM  

I think K*Mack needs one too!!!

good god man - you slay me!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:30 AM  

That is awesome. I'm very jealous. Perhaps I missed it - but where did you get it done?

And your profile puts Alfred Hitchcock's to shame!

Kidding - you have a very nice profile.

Wow, Danny Dan Dan. . . I can't believe you spent money ( and a fair amount at that!) on that hideous, chunky, woody excuse for a candle holder. It's like a bad grade school art project gone wrong, way wrong. And eveyrone who read the blog and can't figure out where/how he got it is an idiot. sheesh.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:13 PM  

That's absolutely fantastic! I love it! How very Ascher.

By Blogger Roba, at 4:28 PM  

Do you know how bad I want one...with my own profile.I think it is the most amazing thing ever.I had a hard time buying a frame for $14.99 for myself at target today though so I think a $100 candle holder is way too big spender for me.Even though I did end up spending $80.00 bucks at target anyhow on a cart full of the most random stuff ever.A measuring cup,two round cake pans,t-shirts for Michael, 4 clearance frames,two boxes of crackers and a york peppermint patty.Except for the peppermint patty I would have rathered the profile candle.I just need the immediate gratification of a big load of junk.

By Blogger Stacy, at 5:22 PM  

i have a love hate relationship with target...i always buy $100.00 worth of random stuff...i need help.

By Anonymous wonderment, at 6:01 PM  

Wow, that is so weird, yet what a cool thing to have on your mantle and brag about. It's like those ink blots that psychs use to figure out if you're crazy. What do you see? I see ME!!
How on earth did you find out about these people that make this thing? I am SO buying one for everyone on my christmas list next year. The only question is, do I put their profile on it...or mine?

By Anonymous lola, at 7:52 PM  

Dan, you didn't have to clean all the whiskey and beer bottle off your mantle to hide your drinking problem so you could show us your latest self indulgence. Why don't you bring it to our next AA meeting and share. Just remember, you can be vain, gay, drunk, but Jesus stills loves you!

By Anonymous The AA Guy Everyone Loves to Hate, at 8:56 PM  

Damn, thought maybe the AA guy had gone for good. He never takes so long to post. I think his attention is wavering a bit. I bet you're saddened by the thought, Dan.

I know I am.


By Anonymous Darcy's Twin, at 9:48 PM  

Looks fantastic Dan :) I'm happy you indulged :) And, Not that it is a candle holder, but, looks pretty cool. Maybe it's the psychedelic candle (and green!, My favorite), that gives it a little punch :)

By Anonymous Cortney, at 2:50 AM  

Whoo hoo - finally got the phsyco pop up blocker to let me open the link - and BLAMO - I see what I am buying myself next Christmas. That is the best conversational bit of decor I have ever seen! (PS Anon guy - why don't you piss of and wallow in your own self hatred somewhere other than here?)

By Blogger elizabeth, at 6:20 AM  

Wow, you guys are all nuts or severely lacking in taste or perhaps some of each please. That thing is UGLY!!!(not Dan, that candle holding monstrosity.) Which leads me to observe that your mantle is like that of a old lady. A nice old lady, but an old lady nonetheless. You need a little Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen in your life dah-link. He's "full fat".

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:21 PM

Can Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen carve my face into something for my mantle? It's not supposed to be some trendy accent piece to compliment a contemporary decor. It's my face. In wood.

By Blogger dan, at 12:30 AM  

dan, you so left that last comment open for lots of jokes, non of which I will make...

But seriously!

By Blogger the other sarah, at 11:15 AM  

you certainly have to much time, dan.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:11 PM  

Loved the Georgie screen saver. How do I get one?

By Anonymous Ed, at 4:47 PM  

that is the most awesome thing ever. EVER.
