Completely petty, totally useless… and still, I can't help but want one of these bizarre My Beating Heart creations for Christmas. They're fuzzy heart-shaped pillows with a "beating heart" inside, to help soothe the lonesome, single masses sleeping alone this holiday season. (OK, I made that last part up; they're probably not intended for that use, but it makes sense to me.)

Anyway, you can hug one to your chest at night -- cuddle up and pretend it's a real live human. The website even claims My Beating Heart will help you "relax" and "mediate" [sic], which, lord knows, I can always use help with. (If anyone knows of a "Relaxation for Dummies" instructional seminar, let me know -- I'm so there.)
