Isn't it weird how so many things all seem to happen in such a short period of time? Lumped into a two week period, St Joseph's Day (March 19,) National Joe Day (March 27,) my birthday (you know,) and my blogversary (April 2.) Weird how all that comes together.
So, it got me to thinking. I don't expect everyone to get me something for each of these traditional gift giving occasions, so it will be ok if you just give me some sort of combo gifts. Yeah, those of you who have birthdays near Holidays like my nephew Michael (December 26th) and my friend Kevin (December 24th) always seem to get screwed and get one gift and are told "This is for both days."
That sucks. But youse all know I'm not into the material things, and 4 gifts, well that would be generous of youse, but I don't really need much.
I have dropped one hint so far, so, to help you with this gift giving conundrum even more, I'll list a few more gifts that you could get me because I like to make it easy for you, and we are down to only 10 more shopping days.
After this week's corned beef and cabbage debacle, a gas mask would be perfect, though I think the Crotchety Old Lady would grab it before me, so maybe a his and her's set would be better.
I was thinking of starting a collection of "Beef Jerky States" and what better one than to start with than Minnesota? This is at ebay, so bid early and often if you want to surprise me with this.
And for the blogger on a budget
These ideas should help you in choosing a gift for me, and to prevent me from the awful task of regifting.
Don't be like the Crotchety Old Lady and the Spawn and be a last minute shopper at the Texaco station because I still have plenty of air fresheners and Slim Jims left over from Christmas.
