Presents are okay and all, but clearly we all really need to be focusing on music-themed decorations.
I'll bet that dude's neighbors love him hahaha
I used to know a kid who had all the really awesome Lego models. Airport. Police Station. Space Shuttle. Pirate Ship. He never played with 'em. Just built them and left them on the shelf. It killed me.
Still though, he's in prison now so I guess there's that.
Husband sticks to the Star Wars stuff. As long as the final display place is in the computer room, he can buy and build as many sets as he wants. I'm sure we will eventually have to purchase shelving for this purpose. I don't get it, but I suppose I wouldn't. With the vagina and all.
Courtney, you can visit whenever you want!
I'm not much of a gift person. I send out a lot of cards. (If any of you want one, PM me your address.) We only buy gifts for the parents and my grandma. Andy and I buy random crap all year...no reason to do presents for each other.
I sound like Eeyore. I love the holidays...I just prefer to keep them as stress-free as possible.
go for it!
She added the phrase "meany head" to my profile.I hardly think I'm an attention whore.I train birds of prey and am I licensed falconer
My sister and I played the hell out of our legos...we had tons of sets (train set, space shuttle, monster trucks etc) and we would build all sorts of shit, leave it for a few days, then tear it all down. One time we even had our own lego Olympics and we built all these different courses for track and field, diving, equestrian etc.....then eventually, someone bought me a bubble gum maker thing for a gift, and the corn syrup somehow got dumped into one of our buckets of legos and they never recovered.
This is definitely a new idea:
Funeral home tries to cater to gay funerals with erotic caskets
Published: 15 Nov 10 09:24 CET
A Cologne funeral home is hoping to draw in gay clientele by offering erotic caskets with nude renaissance imagery or rainbow-coloured urns, along with other tailored services for homosexuals and their mourners.
A casket featuring the figures of muscular young men in athletic poses has been in the display case at Königsfeld & Brandl for the last three weeks.
The operators of the funeral home Thomas Brandl, 32, and Michael Königsfeld, 34, are themselves are a couple and aim to cater to both gays and lesbians in addition to straight customers.
Their ad reads: “Those who want a warmer, somewhat more fantastical departure, will find us to be a sensitive partner.”
They put gay customers in contact with special speakers and religious leaders for funeral services, organise natural burials in places where only other gays or lesbians have been laid to rest, arrange for graveside champagne toasts and colourful balloon decorations.
“There is also a casket in rainbow colours, but I think it looks awful,” Brandl says.
The mortician couple hopes tap into the community needs in the Rhineland city, one of Germany’s centres of gay culture where every tenth resident is estimated to be gay.
“Naturally there were people who threw their hands up in horror in front of the display window,” said Königsfeld.
But most passers-by are delighted by what they call their “gay caskets,” including women of a certain age, he added.
“We had a widow in the office whose husband we buried and she was quite taken with the firm young men on the casket,” he said.
In particular, women between the ages of 60 and 80 seem particularly open to the model, he said.
But one rival undertaker has called the caskets “borderline,” while another said he wasn’t sure such a casket provided a dignified burial.
Still Brandl and Königsfeld believe they are on the right track.
“It’s not easy for gays and lesbians to tell an undertaker that they must bury their life partner,” they said together in an advertisement. “In this most difficult of situations it is easier for them to have a contact person who understands them.”
So I asked Nick what he would like for Christmas, he said he wants clippers for this face. He doesn't like to clean shave very often but needs some sort of clipper to trim down his scruff. I am guessing this isn't like an electric razor... Where should I go to buy this? Any suggestion on brand/style/price range would be appreciated.
I would just like to say how happy I am that my gift giving list shrunk so much this year.
I'm tempted to just get the Patti Smith and Keith Richards books for everyone on my list.
I thought these were pretty awesome. If I skated, I would get all 6...
I'm not sure if this is the exact model I have, but it's basically the same thing. I also rarely shave completely clean either and really like hair clippers.
EDIT: also, you can get these anywhere, like Target/Wal-Mart, CVS/Rite-Aid, etc
I found this yesterday at Munky King and bought it for a white elephant party. Fucking awesome.

It's just nice to have all of the clips just in case. I use it to shave my head, but I also grow big beards and i like to have all fot eh different trimming options available.
