All I wanted for Christmas...

...was a Snuggie made out of a ShamWow...

...alas, all I got was a silly iPhone.


Just kidding - well no, I really got an iPhone - but it is far from silly! MZ definitely surprised me with this and I totally love it. I though it would be hard to end the love affair with Blackberry. HA! NO! Done and done.

I have had some issues getting ALL of my contacts over but other than that, I've adapted very well and am absolutely loving it. MZ is the best present giver ever!


So back to the Snuggie made out of a ShamWow - you have to admit, it would be kind of handy. And if you don't know what either of these are, then you clearly didn't watch any football over the past week because they advertised for these items endlessly! So much so, that now after anything that's said, it's always followed with "it's made in Germany, it has to be good." That's the catch phrase for the ShamWow. I'm not certain that there is a catch phrase for the Snuggie except that creepy family at the soccer game that all look like those Gregorian Monks off that CD from the early 90's. MZ also feels this is a dual purpose necessity for me, as I'm always cold and walk around with a blanket and let's just say I'm just a tad bit clumsy - for instance I spilled ketchup on the carpet the other day - straight from the bottle - no one still quite knows how it happened - very mysterious!!!


Welcome back to reality everyone. This is going to be my first full 5 day work week since well before Thanksgiving!!! Wish me luck!

Hi Gracie, JC here. It's my first 5 day week as well!! Ugggh! Plus I've got a student starting on Wednesday. Visiting your blog serves as a natural endorphine to help me get through the work day. So thank you! I'm hoping to get my I-Phone soon and ditch my dinosaur bone :)

I got an iPhone about a month ago and now I don't know how i ever lived without it :) It's wonderful.

Is it really sad that I did want a snuggie for Christmas and I'm still thinking about ordering one for myself. :)

Have a great day. I am dying for a I Phone but Verizon does not offer it and it is too complicated to switch carriers.
Amazing about the Snuggie-- I think the inventor is a millionnaire by now.

I'm *very* jealous of your iPhone... It makes my BlackBerry look like it's Zack Morris' phone from Saved by the Bell, ha ha.

Miss Caught Up said...

I am also jealous of your iPhone! I'll trade you my iTouch for your iPhone? LOL :D

I can attest to the fabulousness of the ShamWow. A friend was fortunate enough to have a stash of them & shared with me their many splendors. However, I can only hope someday to possess a Snuggie. Seriously, a wearable blankie? Sign me up.

Oh, yeah, and I doodle-on-my-Trapper Keeper heart my new iPhone too.

I was going to get you a Snuggie for Christmas until I saw this:

My friend Kelly has an iPhone and I constantly have my hands on it. I love it. Enjoy!

I know two people with Shamwows that just seem to be shams :(

Petunia said...

iPhones ROCK!!! :-)

The hubs and I have been making snuggie jokes like crazy. Those advertisements have been everywhere.

I thought nothing could beat the blackberry either, but the iphone has far surpassed it. I love love love mine. It becomes more useful every week.
