Meet me halfway

Today is November 16th. I’ve passed the halfway point for NaBloPoMo, so I ask for your indulgence while I break a vow of silence about — wait for it —



It’s not that I want to start thinking about shopping for gifts. But I must, if I’m going to shop online, order items to be sent to my house, and then mail them out to their recipients. I’ve waited before, only to have things arrive too late to mail or, perhaps worse, the item is out of stock and I have no backup plan.

Catalogs have been arriving at my house by the mailbox-full, and already there are some dog-eared pages and items marked by wishful thinkers.

Since I have committed to posting every single day this month –no easy task for me, you can be sure– I hope you will meet me halfway by doing a little virtual early shopping. Maybe you will even find something you like! Today’s treats come from the Wireless Catalog:

This T-shirt is perfect for those Scandinavian relatives.

Procrastination. It’s what I’ll do…. tomorrow.

Perhaps I’ll even present you with more gift ideas… tomorrow.
But I think for today — because it is TUESDAY —  I’ve done enough.

You’re welcome. 😉

  1. I love the funny ideas they have for t-shirts. Too bad we can´t get them here. Those catalogs sound good to me. I love flipping through them.

  2. I’d love to have all of them – especially the dragon-one… The last one is actually great – if it weren’t for my ongoing battle to teach my students how inappropriate the f-word is…

    • I confess, I have a bit of trouble with the last one, too –we don’t talk like that at my house– but when I saw it in the catalog, it made me laugh out loud!

  3. That’s the beauty of acronyms. You don’t have to say the words if you don’t want to. 😉 I wish I could remember where I’d heard the dragons one, originally. I’ve always loved that line. Any idea where it’s from?

  4. Ha, I love that last shirt.

    I have been thinking about the holidays as well. Some years, I’m not at all interested in the season, but this year I’m gung-ho! One of my favorite things is to do black Friday via the computer. I don’t really care for shopping at the stores and now there are so many deals online too. It’s a great shopping day and I don’t have to bump elbows with anyone. 🙂

  5. I complain about Christmas ads this early, but since so many people shop online, they really do have to start early.

    Love the t-shirts.

  6. Sadly, I have to start early in order to afford gifts. I really like the t-shirts.

  7. Yes more gift ideas!!

  8. Love the hilarious T shirts! As I live in Sweden, that lutefisk one is spot on!

  9. The first two shirts I would have bought in a SNAP for Dr. John… if he was still with us. He would have LOVED them both!

  10. If you’re of a mind to, you can send me tshirt #2. 😉

  11. Thanks. I just spent the last half hour looking through the Wireless catalog and that wasn’t on my “to-do” list!

  12. I love the dragon shirt. It’s perfect humor for a junior.
