Done With That Shit Anyway

The Wifely Unit is out spending money somewhere between two states so I took the opportunity to "wrap" her gifts.

Yeah, it looks just like this too.

Without the bow.

Now I remember why they call it wrapping tissue, the fucking shit tears just getting it out of the cellophane.
We're gonna need more tape now too.

Have I mentioned how much I hate Christmas lately?


  1. aluminum foil

    you're welcome

  2. Wow. You went to the same wrapping school i did. Can't wrap for crap.

  3. Hi Phil,
    It's Neil here, over at the Golden Geese News. Two years ago, I asked for some help with my Toyota truck, and you were one of the few people who responded. Maybe this will do no good for you at all, but I gonna try here, to repay your kindness.

    First off let me assure you, we're kindred spirits (I can cut a bearing race off a shaft with an acetylene torch without nicking the shaft.), so you can trust what I have to say:

    Christmas and snow - you can either love 'em or hate 'em, but choosing the later route negatively affects, only you. Christmas and snow are never going to how you feel about them, either way.

    How you feel about either depends on what you focus on. Personally, I love Christmas and snow. Check out my latest post on the Golden Geese to see why:

    I could be sticking my nose where it doesn't belong, but if my advice brings you even one moment's worth of happiness, even just one time, it's worth me taking the risk.

    Hope I didn't overstep my bounds, and Merry Christmas!


    P.S. You can quickly become an expert wrapper if you approach it from the same angle as if you were making a homemade gasket or a template. Don't aim for perfection as a whole. Just take one step at a time and aim for perfection in each step.

    1. I thank you for taking the time to convey that to me, I also have some good memories of Christmas past.
      I am just getting old and grumpier by the day it seems anymore, been working way too much and I am exhausted all the time on top of that.
      As for the wrapping thing, I'm going with the gift bag idea from here out.

      I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  4. If the gift is alcoholic, I just put it in a Pharmacy bag.
    Kinda hard to disguise a bottle, anyway.


  5. next time bag it in a gift bag

    easier than that miserable expensive gift wrap used for torturing people



  6. tired
    vitamin B12 under-the-tongue drops and vitamin D3 drops.
    try to get some sunshine on your skin if possible.
    also, less sugar, if you are eating Christmas candy.
    sugar can make you tired.
    love to you both.

  7. Looks good ta me.

  8. Ha ha , the wife knows come Christmas morning, to have a knife handy for all the tape I use wrapping....
    I asked the old lady, the other day if she bought some tape. Being a woman , she can't just say yes and tell me where it is...She proceeds to get it out and dumps like six rolls in my lap. Soooo that little demonstration deserves at least one entire roll of tape on a single gift !
    You ain't got the market cornered on being an asshole, heh....


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
