First of all I wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and condolences.. oops I mean congratulations on my engagement to my Lady Friend. As of last week we’ve been together over four years, living together for more than two and generally happy with each other for a good couple months. So why the hell not get engaged?!
We’re going to tie the knot this summer in a very small, Simple ceremony. What else would you expect? I’m sure I’ll share more with all of you as the date approaches and we start to make plans. Maybe I should live VLOG the wedding for you all to watch here? Ummm…. no.
On to other things… I have been meaning to share this with everyone since Christmas. The Lady Friend and I give each other traditional wrapped presents but as many people do we also stuff goodies into stockings for each other. It’s all under this bizarre ruse of Santa, as if he is taking time to visit the house of a 40 year old swearing, drinking a-hole in Minnesota who doesn’t have any kids. Lucky me!
This year in my stocking there was a square wrapped present. I opened it up and started laughing immediately. It was a scented candle. What is so funny about a scented candle? Take a look at the packaging:
My Lady Friend desgined the entire thing, printed it out and wrapped it around the candle like it was store bought. I honestly didn’t know it was NOT store bought until she told me. I told her we should mass produce those labels, slap them on some cheap candles and sell them as novelties!
Ok, maybe that’s not the best idea I have ever had, but this was a brilliant gift. It’s sitting right next to me and my spot on the couch. I refuse to say whether or not it has been lit.
P.S. Any of you who find me even slightly amusing should know the Lady Friend is far funnier. And she’s creative to boot! Maybe I’ll talk her into writing another blog post for me in the near future.
