On the 3rd Day of Christmas, This Geek Gives to Three or More

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.

Oink.

Got TUMS?

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.

What?

You're pregnant?

You're not old?

Oh.  Oops.


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.

Oops.


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.

These are all most excellent gifts. Now how come I didn't get a bacon scarf!

bacon, bacon, bacon!

Of course, Dana has to get it. Hmmph.

*SMILE*

Belle said...

I want that welcome mat for myself.

Mrsblogalot said...

Tee hee! Thank you! I love it!!! No re-gifting required for that gem!

Um...not that I would ever re-gift or anything...

(-:

00dozo said...

Ha! I love the flying monkeys! I suppose the poo is sold separately?

Boom Boom Larew said...

Flying monkeys are always a good idea!

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - Sorry, QuirkyBaconLover. Console yourself by fryin' some up in the skillet!

@Belle - Hee Hee. I love the mat!

@Mrsblogalot - I'm glad you like your rug. I admit to re-gifting.....sometimes ;-)

@00dozo - I'm sure pooh can be easily obtained. YIKES!

@Boom-Boom - Absolutely. What else are monkeys good for?

Random Chick said...

Flying monkeys! Flying monkeys! They are soooo going on my Christmas List! And a bacon scarf.

ha ha ha!!

Leeuna said...

That bacon scarf is fabulous. And I simply must have one of those welcome mats.

Jean Knee said...

woo hoo

they slung those monkeys out into the audience during vacation bible school and I didn't get one :(

now I have three :)

ReformingGeek said...

@Random - I hope you get some!

@Leeuna - What dog owner wouldn't want a bacon scarf? Hee Hee.

@Jean - Yea! The monkey is on your back now. Ha!

Lauren said...

I swear I caught a whiff of bacon grease wafting from the scarf. Pigs could use a matching bacon hat and gloves to go with the scarf. It's getting mighty cold at the trough.

mama-face said...

LOL. Oh how I've missed the blogging world. Where else would I see a bacon scarf???????

Can't wait to see what's under the tree for me from you.

totally just kidding.

Merry Christmas Reffie. (and evil twin).

xo

This reminds me that I promised the kid a flying monkey after they sold out this summer on our cruise (wtf?). But my fear of flying monkees made me forget. Next year, I am certainly putting a bacon scarf on my list. Goes with everything.

Deb said...

Love the flying monkeys! In fact, I loved it so much I decided to make a live version using NutJob.

PS - Thank you Evil Twin for the flying monkey/flinging dog schematics you sent. I owe you.

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

Gasp! It's PERFECT!! Flying magical fairies? JUST what I've always wanted!! HOW did you KNOW?!!!!

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

I don't know which gift I like more, the doormat (love it!) or the Flitter Fairies (fun!). Nice giftage, Reffie. Now get outside and jog. I think you need it after that party.

ReformingGeek said...

@Lauren - Pig irony. Love it.

@mama-face - Yeah, a bacon scarf. Who would have thought? I'm sorry. I spent the money for your prezzie on me. ;-)

@Kablooey - Everyone needs a bacon scarf. I think the monkeys will be messy.

@Deb - Poor Nutjob. A victim, once again.

@Joan - I'm glad you like them. Have fun!

@Mike - I'm glad you liked my choices. Burp. I'm heading back to the trough, now.

Sue said...

That doormat is awesome, I want one.

♥Georgie♥ said...

okay you completely rock by making sure that the desserts were not left out!!! LOL....and look how kind you are with your virtual gifts!

honeypiehorse said...

Wow, that is one creepy looking book! Thanks, RG! Merry Christmas.
