THIS SHIT IS THE BOMB!

Simon writing here. I don’t care if this is Hello Kitty. These things are the greatest invention for our studio in the winter. Because we’re all using the big standing desk (which is SO MUCH healthier for you than sitting all day) our feet get cold. We wear slippers as well, but when it’s really cold, we’re all fighting for this thing. It’s perfect. PERFECT! And our desk also has outlets you can plug lots of things into, like phone cables and laptop power cables, and the Hello Kitty foot warmer is always plugged in.

But all of the girls freaking use it all the time. Martina #1. Leigh #2. Soo Zee uses it rarely, because it’s mostly 1 and 2 using it, and then I get it almost never, unless I squeeze my feet into it while Martina’s using it. Then she snarls her lip at me and bares her teeth. I growl back. We both lock eyes with each other and then circle around each other, eyes locked, growling and barking. And then, right when we’re about to duel to the death, Leigh steals the slippers. We haven’t found an appropriate way to deal with Leigh yet. She doesn’t understand the growling and circling. She is not one of the pack. I will pee on the spot in which she stands, though.

One thing we never understood about this thing is Meemers’ aversion to it. We thought that the Meems would be in there all the time. It’s a soft cave. He loves soft caves! He’s totally taken over all of Spudgy’s soft caves around the home. Spudgy just sits on the hard floor now, forlorn, looking at his once-home as his a-hole brother lounges in there, mockingly. Grow a pair, Spudgy! You’re older than him! You can totally take him on! Nevermind. Point is, Meemers won’t go near this thing at the studio. It’s a soft cave, AND IT WARMS UP! He should be there all the time. He should be hissing at anyone trying to get close to it. I’m assuming that because it’s a kitty he doesn’t ant to go into it? Is that a violation of sacred cat law? Or is it because it’s pink and Meemers doesn’t want to be confused for a girl anymore and be as cat-manly as possible? I’m sorry we thought you were a girl before, Meemers! We couldn’t find your fluffy balls! There was too much fluff! Forgive us! Actually, we’ll be fine without him fighting for the Hello Kitty foot warmer. We’ll keep that for ourselves, thanks!

So that’s it for this week’s WTF. What’s everyone doing this weekend? We’re just happy to be home this time. Last weekend we were in Japan for the crazy snowstorm. This weekend we can do the stuff we need to do for the rest of the week, like cook and clean! Wahoo! That doesn’t mean we’re done with videos for the week, though. Leigh and Soo Zee have a DICKS going up tomorrow. Yay! Yes, those are still around. Make sure you click on this pretty button down here so you don’t miss out on any of our videos. Shwing!

  1. I wish people invent a Hello Kitty Cooling Slippers here, or better Hello Kitty Cooling Chair (with Massager and Fluffy Cushion)… Okay. I need to invent this myself and take all the royalty I can get. Muahahaha! — Loving kisses for Meemers, from Indonesia. :*

  2. this may be the ONLY hello kitty object i may ever really wanted in my whole life *w*

  3. simon was adorable in this episode & the text post was hilarious. ultimate eyk goodness

  4. Ummm…can I send you money to buy one for me?!? Although…when my toes are warm I get sleepy…

  5. Oh my Glob simon and martina…. I saw this and I died.https: //www.facebook.com/mamonde.kr/app_498072930312903

  6. it won’t go in because it would be too hot for him. Cats have their fur to keep them warm and that’s enough for them :)

  7. how much does one of these things cost over there ?

  8. My feet are like ice blocks. I should get one of these things…

  9. omg just noticed. Where is the Flaxton Street sign?!

  10. This one is cuter http://item2.gmarket.co.kr//English/detailview/Item.aspx?goodscode=436572127 (I don’t like Hello Kitty that much *runs for cover*) but I like the idea of this and this cute bear is also cheaper! Thanks for bringing this to my attention!! Very useful WTF!!

  11. Were is a link to this on G-Market?!

  12. <3 Love It!!!! <3 *stares at hello Kitty with heart eyes*

  13. “So what you’re saying is…” What? I don’t understand it :( Damn my English listening abilities… Can someone help?

  14. SIMON AND MARTINA Y U NO NOTICE ME !!! :D:D https://twitter.com/Mimchetu/status/433927346567933952 i really want you to see this video request i made for you ^O^

  15. When I found this, I just sat there staring at my computer wishing I had $72 to spend on these

  16. NANANANA NANA NA E-E-E-Electric sock! that was one of my favorite blooper reels ever, I just had to rewatch it
    Fortunately, I rarely have cold feet but my grandma would totally love it. And my mum too.
    And Simon, did you have too much coffee? Because this blog post is awesome! ;D Yay for DICKS but I wonder if you guys are going to bring back the indie segment? I miss it.

  17. PunkyPrincess92

    i need that!!!!!!!
    i have 2 pairs of socks on cos my feet are so cold!!! and it’s hardly even helping!!
    I don’t want big puffy feet this year!

  18. Will Simon’s giant man feet fit in the kitty?

  19. it’s quite obvious, I think
    As a young companion of a Witch, Meems, in one of his previous lives, unfortunately got caught up in a “Burn The Evil Witch” festival (they were quite known back then) and he has still not recovered his confidence around places that start heating up for no likely good reason
    Yes, Simon n Martina it’s in your hands to help this poor kitty get back on its feet.

    awesome vid, as well as you monday’s kpop video.I liked it veeeeery much.yup

  20. I didn’t know I needed one of these but now, I can’t live without one! :P There is a bunch of cute ones from China as well on ebay. Maybe not as good quality though..

  21. I found it on ebay but its $133 AUD :(

  22. I need one!! But does it have to be hello kitty? :/

  23. How can you stand up and work all day. We used to have stand-up computer positions where I used to work and we would use them for about an hour and have enough. It was great to get up and stretch for awhile, but then it just became annoying. Curious in Idaho…..

    • We have soft spongy mats under a micro fibre carpet so it keeps your joints from hurting. We had a custom made desk designed to fit the arm height of Soozee and Leigh since they’re the shortest. Simon and I use raised computer stands to keep ourselves from hunching over. I am the champion of desk standing, and I will stand for the whole day and sit down only at the end of the night. Soozee and Simon are matched for semi-standing desk usage. Simon tends to slowly work his way to a bean bag chair and Soozee is often already IN the bean bag chair when we get to work. Then she’s all like, “oh no, I totally just sat down” but we know better. I scolds Simon every time he sits in a chair. Hahah! Leigh lasts the shortest and often ends up snuggled under a blanket and surrounded by cushions in The Cave. The Cave has floor heating but you have to sit on the ground and edit on your lap, which for me, really kills my lower backs. I don’t know how Leigh does it. Even though it can suck to stand, I noticed that every time I sit at a table to edit I get severe back pain, so I choose sore legs over back pain. If you keep at it everyday, you’ll get used to it after 3 weeks and it’s an incredible change. :D

  24. I. WANT. ONE :o

  25. Please have a contest to win one of these O U O (if its not too expensive)

  26. This was such a funny blog post! Simon, You are really talanted and You should write a book. “Adventures of incedible SoooooZeeeeee” or something similar.

    I need one of these!!!

    It was awfully cold last week (it said it was -3, felt below -10) and I had to wear 2 pairs of socks with my Converse. The 1st day, I wore only 1 pair, and after a day of classes and waiting for a bus to take me to my student rental from the Pizza place, my toes froze to the point that I’m pretty certain were going to fall off.

    I just need this to warm my toes as soon as I get home from classes. That way I dont have frozen toes, and I don’t have to wear socks to bed.

  28. my uber guess is that the meems know he’s too much of a giant fluff kittie and can’t fit in hello kitty a-hole. Ah?AH? Get it?! sighs…

  29. this is really off topic but martina! do you watch my love from the stars? or in other words 별에서 온 그대? cause of the guys in the drama named 희경 and in real life i think it is 박혜진 was wearing turtlenecks ALL the time. but he looked fine though. why do you think it looks bad? im just wondering~ ps: I HATE WEARING TURTLENECKS THEY ARE SO ITCHY AND ANNOYING

  30. I loooove these segments–they’re my favorite!

  31. I’m so jealous!! I have notoriously cold hands and feet during the winter (people actually refuse to let me touch them with either – they literally leap away going “stay back!!” Thanks, guys…) so I could really use something like that! Koreans always seem to think of the little things that make a difference.
    Silly Meemers. He doesn’t know what he’s missing! Then again, it seems to be a cat thing – mine is also terrified of the things she should like, but not afraid of the things that she shouldn’t. Hrm.

  32. Something like that would me marvelous in our igloo like apartment. but pretty sure I would end up like Simon and never getting to enjoy it, with having three other room mates and a cat and dog.

  33. I have warm-hello-kitty-foot envy!
    …Maybe Meemers has hit his rebellious teenage years? My 47 lbs Australian Shepherd would totally try to climb in that.
    Martina, I cannot get over your sweater. Holy Hamsters! *o*
    And Simon, GMarket should totally hire you to do an advertisement…Just saying, the puns you could make in that commercial!

  34. haruchi

    I need one of those… My student apartment in Finland was cold, my student dorm in Japan is cold so why don’t I have one already!?! Too bad I didn’t see any when I was in Korea… maybe I could find one in Japan. Though I would need a hand warmer the most because when I’m on my laptop my hands get really cold, especially the mouse hand. ugh

  35. maybe meemers doesn’t like it in there because it smells of stinky feet…:D

  36. I love the feet warmers thing. My mom puts one in the office and I used it once. From then on, the feet warmer found a new home in my room. In China, I also found one with Ironman’s helmet, Pikachu’s head (and other pokemons) and also Totoro.

  37. Sara Napsey

    Can you post the link to buy this? I’m always conflicted when I put my ondol on at home. I like having warm feet (and sometimes butt) while I sit, but I don’t like walking on warm floors. I NEEDS THIS. D:

  38. My cat will not be near anything warm. He is very fluffy and prefers cooler areas so maybe Meemers is just very warm temp and does not like it too warm.

    • Meemers is a heat freak. He loves it. He always finds the hottest spots on the floor when the ondol heater is on, and rolls around all over it and meows his fat head off.

      • Wow, then I am surprised he hadn’t staked his claim on the cozy heater cave. Maybe it is too stifling with the heat and no movement? I guess you can be happy not fighting the cat and all the people. Clash at EYK. Lol

      • Hey guise! I was interested in the meemers avoiding this heating foot cave as I totally agree most cats LURVE heat (if you can’t tell i have a kitty :D). I wondered whether it was due to the scent when heated as kitties are VERY sensitive to scents. That or the cave is too small or uncomfortable? Here’s a little experiment you could try to see whether it is Martina’s scent that is deterring the meems (if you try it out put it on an open the happy cos I’m so curious now!). The theory here is that Martina’s scent (as she seems to be the main person using this) is so overpowering that its marking the foot cave as Martina’s territory or meems hates the scent. Meems could be acknowledging that the Matriarch of the family owns the foot cave.

        Find a heat spot on the floor you talked about that Meems is known to love and regularly goes to. Buy enzyme pet odour cleaner to clean and remove all scents from area/floor. Remove any items that contain Meemers, Spudgy’s, Simon’s or Martina’s scent including food from near the chosen spot. Place a camera and video the meems preferably when he is home alone (or Spudgy and you guise are in another room). If possible don’t leave on any heating in that area.

        Exp Condition 1: Martina places a square of new cotton cloth in her shoes and saturates it with her foot smell over a week. The square is then placed on the chosen spot. Leave Meemers in the room alone to be filmed. Note his behaviour on video towards heated spot.

        Control condition 1: Clean the area and repeat filming process as above. Leave no cloth or other scented items in the area. Note his behaviour on video towards heated spot.

        Control condition 2: Choose a perfume or scent that Meemers is known to hate (most kitties hate synthetic smells or eucalyptus). Saturate a new cotton cloth with the scent. Clean area and repeat filming process as above. Note his behaviour on video towards heated spot with scented cloth.

        Exp Condition 2: Leigh places a square of new cotton cloth in her shoe and saturates it with her foot smell over a week (This is to differentiate how meems acts towards Leigh’s scent compared to Martina as she also uses this foot cave). Clean area and repeat filming process as above. Note his behaviour on video towards heated spot with cloth.

        If Meemers behaves in a similar way to the known deterrent scent when exposed to Martina’s scented cloth, than Meemers either dislikes her scent or he acknowledges it to be his mother’s territory who is his superior in the family hierarchy. If scent has nothing to do with it he will act how usually does at that spot. In theory if he is avoiding Martina’s scent because he’s respecting the family hierarchy than he may be more likely to approach the spot with Leigh’s smell. However this depends as he may also avoid Leigh’s scented spot because he might think she is higher than him in the hierarchy. Also it sounds like Spudgy, is likely to be equal to or lower in the hierarchy in Meems opinion. Ok I got all my nerdiness out hope that was at least entertaining in some way! xo

    OMG! I seriously need one for work and one for home! My feet get cold, then the rest of me gets cold and then I shiver and never warm up. I’m a tad envious, but I can’t top Simon’s envy. You looked so sappy in want of the Hello Kitty warming slipper Simon.

  40. How much did that even cost you guys? It’s like $120 USD on ebay! o.O

  41. I can totally feel Martina’s happiness on buying the Hello Kitty Warming Slippers all the way here!!
