There are many benefits to working at the same place that your spouse happens to work, like you can have said spouse do things that you'd normally put in a work request for. He would have moved my computer for me anyway; but, I'd like to think of it as a birthday gift, really. Kind of like the Sur La Table bundle of awesome that K and the kids gave me tonight.
I like to pair things, so since today's gift was foodie in nature, I thought today's gift for y'all should be...food. I know, I am completely unoriginal; but, I am off today, I woke up with a cold, so we will just blame that. Anyways, who wants dilly beans?
Today's gift is a jar of dilly beans(!) and a jar of jam/preserves, winner can pick either cardamom plum (plums grown in my very own back yard!) or strawberry jam (for the less adventurous). Please tell me: what is your idea of the most perfect gift (for yourself) either real or theoretical? I like fun things; but, I am getting to the stage of life where functional trumps a lot of more frivolous gift qualities (but of course, the first three letters of functional spells "fun" so...).
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or 2359, should you prefer that), Sunday, May 12th (also, Mother's Day). Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. I will show you what I have to gift each day and let you know what you need to tell me to try to get it. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly thereafter
