Gift Envy

Remember when you were a kid and somebody else got a gift for Christmas that you wish you had gotten? I'm experiencing the same feeling tonight. My pal Josh Williams has receiving an amazing early Christmas present from Helen Mansfield, and I'm coveting. Oh, I'm coveting.

That was great! just might have to listen to Outkast later today while cleaning my house..On that note, I don't know how people can let THAT MUCH DUST build up on ceiling fan blades.

Yeah, last year my brother, Casey, got a full blown Jack Daniels BAR for Christmas. It was made out of two whiskey barrels that were cut in half and lined with red felt material with cabinets. It had a brass foot rail with rod iron chairs. So bad ass.

...I got a flask.

Clint's reasoning, "I'll get you one too when you buy a house."

Thats almost as good as the early X-Mas gift that I got: A coupon for one free karate lesson. Bad-ass.

olives: I hope you haven't inspected my ceiling fans when you've been here.

Melissavina said...

I've got a Christmas present for you right here.

And it works out really well for your German readers too.

Its a pretty rockin' gift.In fact I am going to scoot on over to bask in the glow of my early gift.

olive: I got the new Wu-Tang Clan album at the office today. I think I'll listen to it tomorrow.

hattica: Dude, buy a garage--then maybe you'll get a car!

zee: That is badass! Have you taken the class yet? You and Eric will have to go toe to toe.

melissavina: A gift? For me? Wait a second -- am I seeing what I think I'm seeing 1:30 on that video?! Also, how about "Go through the puddle!" I'm hyperventilating with laughter about this right now. And the "this makes me have a headache" girl truly warms my soul. It's one of the best things I've seen in a while.

Aside from the few instances of actual injury and battery, this is very funny and has been an excellent gift. Thanks, Melissavina!

josh: It is! Now check out what Melissavina got for me.

I have a house! I'll trade you my KU hockey jersey for that bar.

Melissavina said...

I realize that the one guy who does a face plant into the ice looks like blood draining from his head, I really believe that it's just ice. I don't think our friends at German AFV would do that to us.

But I'm happy you liked it.

Melissavina said...

I mean, just water running from his face. Too much coffee, I type faster than I think.

SleekPelt said...

melissavina: I loved it. But at 1:30, did that kid really smash her dad in the back with a shovel? And did he really collapse in agony? As for the coffee, this is just more evidence that you might actually be me.
