Not a bad irk, still not sure about this monthly deal though.
I’ll take it.
Black Irk Bag
Purple Primula Insulated Mug (@Barney)- will use
InstaCharge 5000mah battery - nice and small to carry
Asobu coffee cup, looks pretty, weird handle
Hotel New York Queen sheets. nice queen for guest bed but reviews from previous sale are not great, TBD.
@IndifferentDude@jchizmar@Lister same same same. The earbuds seem pretty cheap, sound quality is awful, but they are small enough that I may find some use for them. The over ear headphones are actually pretty decent for the price. The sound quality is alright; better with noise canceling off. They are fairly comfortable. If I was going to use them I’d probably throw some tape on them to reinforce the weak points that the reviews complain about breaking. I have much nicer anc bluetooth headphones, so I doubt I’ll bother. The shirt (mediocre flask) is way too small for me. The socks are, well, meh.
-A broken porcelain mug in multiple pieces. I could hear it’s fragments as I picked up the box. Pretty lame.
-A Mahli Weighted Neck Wrap & Eye Mask Arometherapy Kit. Say it’s not recommended for sleeping, which is when I’d probably want to use it the most. Still useful though!
-Kenneth Jay Lane Faux Black Gem Necklace. Don’t imagine getting a lot of use out of this one.
-8-Piece Solar LED Butterfly Lights. Hard to see a use out of it in an apartment setting, but we’ll see.
Overall, kind of a disappointment but that’s mostly because of the porcelain mug.
Black IRK bag-always useful.
Monster Screen Clean for Laptops -Useful.
Kate Spade Julieanna sunglasses w/case – you can’t see them against the black but they’re wayfarer style. I’ll wear them.
CobaltX Alloy Wireless earbuds. White/pink -Currently charging. Hopefully they work reasonably well, I broke my earbuds last week.
Two Fraas Wool men’s scarves. Price tags say $52 – Really nice. Soft! Will make nice presents.
Got mine! Pretty much what others got. Also got a casemates shirt with a “K” on it. I’m guessing that’s a Kickstarter edition. Sadly, it’s a 4XL, which is about 3 Xs too big. maybe my wife will want it as a sleep shirt.
@MrMikenIkes I’m in the same boat as you are! My June IRK was “Accepted at [local] USPS destination facility” two days ago, and then arrived (two days in a row!) at a post office across the state. meanwhile July IRK currently inbound via FedEx/Smartpost with a saturday ETA, so I’m putting my money on the latter arriving first.
Mine showed up this morning at like 8am. Guess USPS is trying to beat the heat.
A full sheet set in a soothing light green
5000mAh battery pack in a “gift box” - I really need to start giving these away, I feel like I get one in every IRK. I remember a few years back at a conference being so glad to get one of the ones that looked like a large lip stick. Oh how things have changed!
6-port USB charging hub. We’ll see how heavy it is, it might go in my work bag for handy “on location” stuff
JUKU LED Lightshow Coding Kit. Neat, education is important, now I just need to find a kid to throw it at, my nephew’s a bit young for this kind of thing.
All in all, not a bad haul, I love getting random electronic bits and bobs
I got mine shipped to my parents house because I was in the process of moving. They did not take a picture, but I got:
An IRK bag
A pair of women’s socks
A pair of off brand air pods
An XXL Meh shirt
A Samsung gear VR! (For an s6)
Mine was shipped a week ago but I don’t think I’ll be getting it for awhile since it’s going through Pitney Bowes and has been stuck at their center for days.
Well, I can at least see what gif my order number brings me.
A very nice IRK arrived yesterday!
Black IRK bag for the collection
Kenneth Jay Lane chunky necklace
Laura Ashley watch
Laptop screen cleaner
TaC brew 3 piece tea-brewer
Everything looks new!
Not Meh. Thanks Meh!
1 pack of 10 single compartment plastic meal prep containers
1 pair of EURO CoolMax tennis socks, ladies size 10-12
1 pair of BYTECH super-cheap airpod knock-offs (new)
1 XXL meh shirt
1 black IRK bag
The shirt is the one with the green meh text and the Kickstarter logo that was sent to those of us who backed the original Kickstarter way back in 2014. How did they even still have any of these left lying around?!?
4-pack of different-headed tweezers, open box. Top pair of tweezers missing.
mini-lighsaber looking object, no packaging. Jammed a battery in it and it’s a flashlight on one side, flare kinda thing on the other.
Puffy vest wrapped in plastic with a power bank in one of the pockets and an “on” button where you expect a logo to be. After fiddling with it it turns out you can plug the power bank in and push the button and the vest kinda heats itself? Kinda.
Two VERY nice Philips Sonicare toothbrushes (packaged together)… in an open box, with some unwrapped contents, during a pandemic. Whatever, heads were new in original plastic, nothing can go wrong here.
Mine arrived today:
1 mug unbroken. Someone wanted more. Whisper me. This one is blue inside, white outside and unbroken
1 synthetic woven yarn style throw, brown, not very soft but looks unused and in its original bag.
1 small monster screen screener spray
1 s/m light blue fleece flip flops says spa on them. Too small for me but looks new.
1 irk bag
Photo to follow when I get a chance (mine is essentially the same as carl669’s higher up this thread.
Finally got mine today, and already see there’s a reveal thread for July… Anyway, I should now have enough IRK bags to do a huge grocery shopping trip once re-usable bags are again allowed in the stores.
A “basket-weave” metal and glass bowl. Plenty of staticky bits of styrofoam everywhere too.
An ultrasonic diffuser - Not sure I understand why it needed to be ultrasonic or be plugged in, but there it is.
Another wireless phone charger.
And one of those sapphire heart pendant necklaces that meh’s practically been giving away lately…
Not fantastic, not horrible; I guess that’s why they call it mediocre, huh?
Bytech True Wireless Earbuds (already have one cutting out occasionally but nice to have a backup set!)
Women’s American Apparel Tee
Women’s workout socks (but I can barely stuff my feet in!)
Bamboo neck pillow from Bed & Brand
The neck pillow is the clear winner here. It’s super comfy and relaxing. Since I can actually use all but one item this is a big winner. Thanks Meh!!
