Evil Twin, Hubby, and I had a great time at the company Christmas party Saturday night. I told myself I was only going to eat seafood (Shrimp Cocktail and Crab Claws) and salad but a plate of stuffed turkey, yams, and bread appeared in front of me and I couldn't be wasteful, now could I? Then, the dessert table beckoned. No. I think it screamed for me. A ramekin of freshly heated Apple/Cherry Cobbler and a tiny bite of Chocolate Fudge Cake found its way to my plate, mouth, and tummy.
For entertainment, we watched ballerinas twirl themselves in tapestries and we laughed at white guys (Hubby's co-workers) swaying and jiggling off-beat on the dance floor. Everyone knows that most white guys simply cannot dance!
Evil Twin tried to get me to take photos of outfits we labeled "WTF - WHAT THE FROCK?" but I couldn't get Hubby's phone in focus and that annoying flash kept drawing attention. Sigh.
Oh. You're here for the virtual gifts for my bloggy buddies?
I almost forgot.
Here we go:
When I think of you, crafty polka-dotted Jean Knee, I think of....
Yes, indeed. Flying Monkeys!
A creative superhero mammal with a cape and a tail, mischievous and carefree at the same time. I hope you can keep them from throwing pooh at each other.
Oh, Yippee! Here's something for my favorite American-made German blogging buddy, Honeypiehorse:
That's right. Hours of entertainment for you and your family. Wait. Didn't you mention that YOUR tummy was getting bigger? Hum........Maybe you need a cleanse to free yourself of all that you have eaten.
You're not old?
For Dana, my frozen Indiana friend with the cute white furry beast and her very own first novel:
Bacon, Bacon, BACON scarf!
What? Beau will love it. I can see him peeing on the rug in excitement. Not what you expected?
Sheesh. OK. I have something else for you:
Yeah. Cookbooks. Joe told me you could use some help.
Oh, wait. Maybe he meant that you could use HIS help.
Oh Joan, sweet Anything Fits a Naked Man blogger. How could I not find something special just for you? Wait. Evil Twin is interrupting me saying SHE has the perfect gift.
"That's DISGUSTING. Put it down. We will get this for Joan instead":
Every girl needs magic, right? Who needs Hermione when you have these?
Finally, a lovely gift for hard-working Mrsblogalot. She has a real job where she is required to pay attention and work at the same time. Wowie.
Just in case you have a problem with drop-in company now and then, this gift just might do the trick:
Hum....but if it doesn't work out, you can always re-gift it next year!
Tune in next week for one last "day" of Geek giving.
For 2nd day gifts, go here.
For 1st day gifts, go here.
