I tried to make my own POD

If you've been following me on Twitter, you'll know that I've signed up with Body/Mind/Change to get a POD (Personal On-Demand).  It's complicated to explain so I'll leave up to you to explore the link if you're interested.  Which you should be.  The future is NOW, people!

Recently BMC revealed that my main man, Andrew, now has a Premier POD and it is a beautiful shade of RED.  I couldn't be happier for him!

This news got me very excited to get my hands on my own POD and being the impatient person that I am I thought I would make my own POD to tide me over until I got my official one.  Now after meeting Mr. David Cronenberg at a book signing at the TIFF this past weekend, I feel like I have to share what I've done.

Knowing nothing about biology or nanotechnology, I took what little reference I had (learned at, it's free!) and a few photos from the Body/Mind/Change Facebook page then combined them with what I do know: poorly executed DIY crafts!

So I present to you, my Plush Pod!

I may have gotten the scale slightly off.

Ok.  I admit.  It looks like an 8 year old girl's sugar rush nightmare.  But it lights up!  I have to turn it on myself and it uses 4 AA batteries, but still...LIGHTS!

It's got headphones so I can hear the recommendations it has for me and a USB plug for interfacing.  I yelled at it all night about how I trust my mailman, how warm Coca Cola disgusts me and how losing a sock when I've for sure checked everywhere makes me so ANGRY, but I don't think it's worked yet.  It's not suggesting anything to me, except for maybe I should put it in a shoebox and hide it in a closet somewhere.

So looks like I'll have to wait for Jan. 19 to get my official, honest to goodness, for real POD from BMC in person.
