Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?

Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?

You know one of the biggest flaws in the Santa Clause Story? It’s not the flying reindeer. Nor is it him visiting 5500 children a second if he’s supposed to visit all the world’s children in one night. It isn’t even that he’ll have to eat 150 billion calories (which puts even my Christmas binge eating to shame). It’s how he’s ever supposed to select the right present for each and every child.

I mean, seriously. Every time I have to buy something for my family I end up tearing out clumps of hair. And there are only 15 of them, not 1.5 billion. How has the stress not killed him yet? Sometimes I feel like eating 150 billion calories just to deal with the Christmas shopping!

Are you struggling with the same problem? Then maybe I can help. I’ve got some ideas you might like. Now, I want you to imagine me doing jazz hands as I say this. You ready? Bobbleheads. Continue reading

Let Your Father Know He’s Your Hero And Other Father’s Day Ideas

My dad has a man cave. It’s a place where my mom fears to tread with any kind of cleaning tool. For when she does try to clean there then whatever my father can’t find afterward will be her fault. And as he sometimes struggles to find his nose with his hands, that is a serious danger.
 
One result of this is the precarious piles of electronics and tools scattered about which slowly migrate around the room. Like sand dunes in a windy desert. A second one is that we never know what kind of present to buy him. You don’t know how often we’ll think we’ve gotten him the perfect gift, only to find out that in some pile he’s already got some better version that he never uses. (I have no idea why always feels he needs to point that out).

6 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For That Fun And Quirky Mom

“Maybe I should just get her something for the kitchen,” You mumble, even as you’re disgust by yourself for thinking it. She’s your mom, not your cook! She deserves more than some unimaginative pot or coffee maker. Besides, you already got her that toaster last year. At the same time, you muse, a new appliance is better than a card and some flowers, right?

Yeah, but not by much – and there isn’t much room in the attic for another gift she won’t use. Continue reading

Shatner Bobbleheads

Are you a Shatner fan? Or for that matter, a Shatner Star Trek fan? Because at San Diego’s Comic Con this year, William Shatner bobbleheads will be released!

One being his legendary character from Star Trek and another from his stint in an episode of the Twilight Zone. Pretty cool if you ask me…but it gets better! There will be two lunchboxes, yes lunchboxes, made of metal and all. The lunchboxes look just like a good old television set complete with a scene from both shows Shatner starred in. While the lunchboxes are very cool, we do not think they are near as cool as the bobbleheads of William Shatner! Anybody have an extra ticket to San Diego!?

Yankee Promotional Bobbleheads

The New York Yankees have recently announced that they will be running a three year long promotional bobblehead giveaway games. This is the first time in around a decade since the Yankees have run such a promotion. The giveaway will include 12 limited edition bobbleheads over a three year span, which sounds like will be four per season.

The giveaway will be limited to the first 18,000 guests. Ticket packs start at just $88, which as you may know is not too bad for Yankees stadium. The Yankees tout the benefits of these tickets as:

-Access to the special games (not sure how this is different than just going to the game?)
-Preferred seating locations (okay this is nice)
-Savings off the advance ticket price (we don’t really want to know how high the prices are expected to go, but if we had to guess, probably a lot)

Here are the first four limited edition games with player bobbleheads that will be given away:

Monday, 7/8 Derek Jeter
Sunday, 7/28 Hideki Matsui
Friday, 8/30 Yogi Berra
Tuesday, 9/24 Mariano Rivera
