I’m sure at least a few of you received a present this Christmas that you would consider a “bad gift.” No matter how much I deny it, I probably gave out one of those bad presents to someone in my family. I try to give good gifts, but I just don’t think I’m great at picking things out and what I consider fun is probably junk to everyone else.
With Christmas a few days past now, I’m sure many of you have downloaded all the holiday photos. Within the stack of pictures of family members stuffing themselves silly and of the overly-decorated Christmas tree, are a few photos of the kids on Santa’s lap, right? It should even bring back memories of when you once sat on Santa’s lap. Was it a scary moment? A happy one?
I had a really good Christmas this year. First, I got a ton of goodies from my aunt and uncle in Seattle. They sent me all kinds of things. As you can see, they think I’m an alcoholic, because they sent me a ton of alcohol.
I got a bottle of Spire Mountain Draft Cider, a bottle of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and some shooters of Finlandia, Goldschlager, and Courvoisier cognac.
This was recorded almost a year ago on Dec. 30, 2008, but I never saved it to my computer. I was pulling out the camera last night to take over to my Grandparent’s house for Christmas this year and found this video of my dog Max being teased by Michelle with the vacuum and I thought I’d share it. Enjoy!
Lots of people really like wine- for example, my girlfriend. She loves to try all different kinds of wines from all different countries. One of the worst things about it though, is that wine is so damn expensive. I don’t want to pay $30 for a bottle of wine that turns out to be crap. Honestly, I’m not much of a wine connoisseur myself and prefer a nice cold beer or a vodka-tonic, so if I’m buying wine, I really want to get something I think tastes good.
Brixr has created the perfect business for people like me. They have come up with what they call TinyBottles, which are basically small vials filled with various types of wines for tasting purposes. This is an awesome idea.
