Best packaging (2009 Challenge) / Update to Best Blog

Did your headphones come in a sweet case? See a bottle of tea in another country that stood off the shelves?

This year's award for superb packaging goes to ........badadadada....(that's a drum roll)..... Soap Hope!

There are many reasons they are an excellent company, but for purposes of this blog post, I will happily tell you that they use what they call "ugly boxes." As long as the product arrives safe and sound, it doesn't matter what the packaging looks like, right? It's kind of like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of packaging.

If you haven't checked out Soap Hope before, now's the time!


I would like to add a post script to December 7th's entry. I've just discovered Flash Fiction 365. This blog is written by Jason Long, a youing father who lives nearby. He uses title suggestions from readers.and then rolls a pair of Dungeons and Dragons dice to come up with a number from 11 to 88. Then he writes a short story with that many words about that particular topic.

Flash Fiction 365 was born on Jan. 1 of this year. He was inspired by the six-word story, attributed to Ernest Hemingway, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

I will most definitely read all 365 entries. So far I've read backwards only through December, but I'm taking my time and will savor every mini-story like the perfect ganache at the center of a perfect truffle.

SO, weird, but I was just talking to Koby about that Hemingway story the other day. It totally stuck with me, and that sounds like a neat blog to read.
