I wonder how it would sound with some Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch in it?

Sometimes, you just stumble across something and think "Wow, that's neat," and also "That should be a gift for someone, because it's pretty cool." Even if you don't know who the gift would be TO - maybe yourself? -- you still find stuff that seems like it was ready made to be given to someone for something special. Stuff like the Tibetan singing bowl shownto the left there.

Looks like an ordinary bowl, right? But it's not. It's a Tibetan Singing Bowl, which makes a tone when you strike it with the hammer you see there.

A Tibetan Singing Bowl isn't a bowl at all -- it's a kind of gong or bell, but one that stands instead of hangs and they're used to help meditation and relaxation (among other uses.)

So that simple little bowl - -which is available at the link above - - is both a centerpiece for conversation and can help you mellow out in your life a little. And you can hear what it sounds like by going to that site (which has many many more of those bowls available).

I stumbled across this, and I'm enthralled by it. Expect, if you know me, to be getting one of these for your birthday. Or annual review. Or tucked under your windshield when I accidentally back into your car, which really was your fault because you parked too close, but I'll overlook it.
