Some venting is in order.

So we had some secret santa event in our department as some kind of after work event. Basically everyone buys or produces some little thing wraps it in and then everyone gets a gift at random, so it's like a surprise.

Now the thing is, I believe I got the most uninspiring, boring, stupid and ****ty gift ever gifted during secret santa. It was just a 0.2l bottle of Korn. Like seriously, that's it. Not even a funny modification on it or something. Just the bottle.

I was so mad I considered just passive-aggressively leaving it there when leaving, but instead I just gave it away to someone else. I mean, other people also got lame junk, but at least it was either remotely funny or at least somewhat original in its own way. A bottle of run of the mill alcohol you can buy in literally every supermarket ever is none of that.

Bah.

(I guess the bright side is that I don't have to feel bad about my own present. Some people really poured a lot of work into their gift and crafted something unique. I basically "just" bought something. (Though I spent a whole evening looking for just the right thing.) I would have been so embarassed if I would have gotten one of the bucketloads-of-work gifts.)
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Yeah that's a pretty lazy gift. Heck and I live in a state where alcohol sales only happen in state stores and even with that hassle it's still a lazy-ass gift.

Maybe if it was some top shelf liquor, but that's lame. Sorry man. Merry ****ing Christmas. :P

You heat it up, duh.

No, but at least the person that got my candle was someone who I worked with very close and is very awesome, so at least that's covered.

As a matter of fact I gave her a gift earlier that day as a little thank-you for being the best. :3

That's one potent candle.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Somebody turn the lights off
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Had to cancel a trip to my Mom's for Thanksgiving. Rescheduled to be there this weekend.

Woke up with a fever over 100 today. Once again I can't go. Really annoyed that this keeps happening. Haven't seen Mom in over a year. :|
