(Requisite disclaimer, because the Internet: this is not a paid endorsement of Amazon. I sure as hell wish it was because money.)
This last Christmas season was hectic as all shit. I’ve already documented the bullshit of coughing up a lung every day for a month, so I’ll leave that alone. But it did mean that I forgot to do my shopping early, which is essential to not rushing around at the last second.
And with the exception of an order I put in way too late to get by Christmas (my fault), almost all the online ordering I did was on Amazon.com.
Timeliness is everything, and even things I had a post-Christmas arrival date on came before Christmas.
Some of the things that came in under the wire included:
A matching birthstone earring and necklace set for my daughter (jewelry always seems to be tricky to get).
An Ohio State University sweatshirt (everywhere local was sold out and I ordered it Wednesday. It arrived Friday, and I needed it for a gift exchange).
A plush Appa the flying bison, from the TV series Avatar: the Last Airbender (which I saw on Amazon Prime recently. It’s a must-see. And don’t mistake it for the movie Avatar (aka Dances with Smurfs) or the M Night Shyamalan movie based on the series (which is ass on ass on ass). Seriously, make time to watch it, it’s that good.).
It also helped that I was getting bonus cash on the credit card for doing my shopping at Amazon.
One thing I’ve kind of wanted for a while is footie pajamas. A big fucking onesie I can squeeze my ass into and be comfy when shit gets cold (the last week up to today). So, after a few days of shivering, I ordered one. And some Magic the Gathering card boxes. Those are due today.
In fact, it went out for delivery at 9:10am with the USPS. I keep checking the front door between calls and other bodily functions (for color, I’ll just say two words and let you imagine what would cause me to drop 4 immodium tablets so far today: Steak Soup).
Yes, I am the master of TMI. Shit happens.
Literally, in this case.
So now, I wait, with post page open, so I can share as the fuzzy onesie goodness as it caresses my parts, as soon as the damned package gets here.
ZOMFFSM!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS AWESOMESAUCE ON AWESOMESAUCE ON HOLYSHITTHISISFUZZY!
Yeah, I’m in a onesie, and it feels so good.
