Tips for gift giving

Why do vendors send baskets of cured meat products that defy the laws of everything holy and don't require refrigeration, along with stinky cheese products and stale crackers, as a gift? I received this huge box of stuff from "Igourmet," got all excited, and.... freeze dried cat food.

These are like the fruit cakes of gift-giving. Not to sound ungrateful, but send random shwag with blinking LEDs, or CHOCOLATE!! Or better yet: Mrs. Beasley's. I've never met a muffin I didn't like.

As if that weren't bad enough, I just got an email saying I had a UPS delivery. Thinking it might have been my shiny new drilled Al pedals, all bug-eyed, I ran to the mailbox area, and quickly scanned all the boxes to find... nothing. Nothing but a stupid work-related letter that easily fit in my inbox.


Nothing fun for me today. I didn't even hear the sonic boom of the shuttle coming in.

[edit: i guess i did hear the sonic boom. after talking to my roommate, i realize the noise i thought was our upstairs neighbors slamming their sliding glass door closed was it.]
