The intellectual equivalent of a ham sandwich.

Weekly Wacko (7)

Since it’s nearing Christmas it’s the perfect time to buy things for yourself while making it look like you’re a good person shopping for others. That’s the Christmas spirit.

How am I Single?

I wanted to buy a video game whose target market was probably a bit younger than me (one of those Legos games – the Star Wars one). I went to the video game store and browsed around so that it would not seem like I came there with Legos on the brain. I looked at a number of games and eventually picked up the game I had come there for.

I went to the register and ended up getting the ‘cute girl’ (video game stores always seem to have one of those as a way to remind nerds of their place – and that place is at home, not talking to girls). She looked around for the CD, found it and put it in the case.

Suddenly, I speak (I had not planned this), “that’s for my nephew … Christmas gift.” This was a lie.

“Do you want me to gift wrap it?”

“Oh, no, no, that’s ok … It’ll just delay him getting to play with it.” That’s a lie, unless you replace the word ‘him’ with the word ‘me.’

“It’s no problem at all, I’ll gift wrap it.”

I’m not sure what’s more pathetic – me unwrapping a gift from myself to myself, or me lying without meaning to.

  1. I love how you make something as innocent as purchasing a lego game seem as if you’re doing something seedy like buying porn. You just need to learn to embrace it. Stand up prooud and declare “if loving those lego games is wrong, I don’t want to be right. “

  2. 1) LOVE IT! 2) the lego games looked awesome. 3) now i kinda wanna go home and find mine…. 4) Buy as many lego games as you want….it’s still not as bad as my not-so-secret love of the Olsen Twins. Talk about having to lie at the register….

      There’s a legos Indiana Jones game coming soon … ohhhh yesssss. I think when we have our reunion we’ll need to bring that mess along.

  3. heheheh I liked this one… and I’ve definitely done this before. Usually it involves a couple of bottles of Sutter Home, and the “giftee” is my mom, but the idea is the same. :p

      haha That’s awesome that you and Katie are also nuts.

      Maybe we should market a line of shirts that say “crazy loves company” and it has a picture of a stapler and a pencil sharpener. And when people say “I don’t get it” we would say, “ugh, it’s a reference to War and Peace. READ A BOOK!”

      Good idea, right?
