Trees

Damn, Christmas trees these days just aren't what they used to be. Today my dad and I went to our usual spot to get a Christmas tree for this year (even though we're not even Christian... kind of strange that we celebrate Christmas). Let me tell you what, the selection this year sucked balls. They had a bunch of trees this year; more than usual, but most of them weren't really that great. We were kind of looking for a smallish/medium sized tree. Not one of those little 1 foot baby trees, but maybe something like 5 feet or so. Most of the trees in that range were labeled as GF and cost 28 bucks. After wandering around for a while, though, I found one of the more expensive trees (usually labeled as FF) that was mislabeled as GF and it was priced at $32. All the other trees around it were $38. So we took advantage of their mislabeling and bought it. It's a little bigger than we were looking for, but at least it's nice. Now I need to get my Christmas shopping done... which is a pain in the ass. It's not that I'm cheap or that I don't want to get gifts for my friends and family, it's just that I don't know what to get. Oh well. Looks like I'm going to get the guitar amp that I want for Christmas from my parents.

Now for a completely unrelated captcha comic!



What are you guys hoping to get for the holidays?

  7. Well I'm just hoping not to receive anything I already own or that I simply don't need which would create an usual awkward situation which in which I need to thanks the person while smiling without them noticing I don't give a fuck about what I just received! Aww, Christmas sucks!!

  8. Grats on the tree.

    Personally, I'm just hoping for a new video card. If I don't get one (which I doubt anyone will be willing to supply me with) than I'll just buy one; nonetheless I can hope.
