The Champion.

2.15.2006

Have I mentioned that my husband is a champion gift giver? I'm not joking - the guy is good.

Knowing that I'm so not into the whole cheesy romanticism of V-Day (but knowing that I still love to get gifts from him), he skillfully picked out some gifts that he knew I'd love. Which, by the way, is not only impressive because he didn't do the old standby of flowers (which he knows I don't like), but also because he's in CHINA right now. Did I mention how good he is?

So this is what I found on V-day:

- A new pair of headphones for my iPod. Ones that are actually nicer than the ones that came with the iPod. And knowing how much asthetics mean to me, he got me white ones.

- A subscription to How Magazine, a great design mag full of super useful information and articles.

- A bag of big M&M's, because, seriously, even though I'm not a romantic and into the schmultz, I still like chocolate. Especially of the mega M&M variety.

- A model kit for a 1967 Shelby GT 500 car. If you don't know, this is my dream car. The one that I would consider selling my kidneys for. And while he wasn't able to get me the actual car, I'm very happy with my model car. And speaking of beautiful cars...have you seen the 2007 Shelby? Supercharged 5.4 liter V8. (By the way, he mentioned starting a Shelby fund for me. I will gladly take donations). See...he knows what really turns me on.

Thank you Herman. I'm glad you're coming home soon.

On a different note, I love how the comment section has a tendency to turn into a discussion on Scrubs. I think we should make it a daily goal to somehow steer the posts back to any mention of Scrubs. Or any of the "Holy S's" (Scrubs, Seinfield, Simpsons) for that matter. Josh, you're a genius for coining that.

Oh, I also wish that I could be one of those noble people who killed their tv. But I'm not.

Both kidneys?

Remember how I would ask you about that fancy car that you liked and called it an "Ashton Martin" or something like that? I'm learning...slowly....

Maybe you should get a scooter like JD? It's kinda like owning a motorcycle, right?

Here is the down side of killing your TV, which i did close to 1 year ago. I now have NO idea what is goign on in this world, seriously. I didn't knwo someone was shot at the white house, i have no idea what is happening in the olypamics. if there was an election right now i probably wouldn't knwo who was running. Man i need to start listening to the radio.

Anyhoo - FYI, i still read your blog almost daily. Peace,

Regi

What great gifts! I especially like the new iPod headphones..the ones that come with the original leave much to be desired in the comfort area!

Yeah, I obviously haven't thought this through...

Because I am in no way original...

If you ever do sell your kidneys, consider having Turkelton do it without anesthetic. I'll bring cottonballs for everyone...
