EVERYWHERE—Yesterday, Barack Obama asked the nation to spend more time volunteering. Today, Starbucks decided to sweeten the deal. Between January 21 and 25, if you sign up to work for 5 hours in the service of the greater good, they'll give you a free large coffee. [Racked Inbox]

YOUR APARTMENT—Heading out into the cold, cold night in search of a viable significant other takes a lot of effort, which is of course why sex toy emporium Babeland exists. But what if you're too lazy to go to Babeland? Luckily, they've considered your plight. Today's UrbanDaddy points out that the chain, like all good New York retailers, makes home deliveries. That's right: For $30, they will bring their wares directly to your door. You still have to change the batteries yourself, though. God, life is so difficult sometimes. [Urban Daddy]
