No Gift Receipt?

When it comes to gift giving, I am terrible. I might try to defend myself with arguments that I’m just creative. Nope. I am just bad at giving presents.  After this year, I’m officially known at work at among my friends as a bad gift giver. People can’t tell the difference between my purposefully crappy gifts and the ones that are supposed to be good.

What you say: “I want this. You can get it here at this store. Please get this for me.”
What I hear: “Get me something strange and unusual that no one could possibly use.”

Perhaps I should stop doing all my holiday shopping at ThinkGeek.com. I just can’t help myself. Some of the most useless, fun stuff exists here. Who wouldn’t want a bar of caffeinated soap or a DIY Dinosaur Light?

So save yourself the disappointment. Just ask for cash.

Behind Schedule

It’s almost one month until my birthday and I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do yet. Normally I have my birthday planned three months in advance, and the invites go out two and a half months in advance. You have to make sure that no one else can make other plans and weasel their way out of your birthday. Well, while I get to work on what we will do for my birthday, you can all start your shopping.
