A Forgettable Gift

leave a comment »

So tonight I went to the local mall with Mrs. kkk. Why? Because it was our big night out. Plus she had to get her wedding ring inspected/cleaned. I hate going to this store because when the better half is getting her ring cleaned the sales woman always asks if I want mine cleaned.

No.

Why get my wedding band cleaned? It’s just going to get shitted up again. This of course then results in Mrs. kkk chiming in and trying to make me relent. Fuck that. When this starts to happen, my resolve is only further strengthened. Now this trip I had an idea. I put my hands in my pockets the entire time we were at this store. It worked. I’ll have to remember this.

Now onto the real point of this entry. The better half is looking to get a gift for someone in her workplace that is moving elsewhere. This of course means a trip to the Things Remembered store and the clearance section where the overpriced crap isn’t as overprices as the rest of the store. While Mrs. kkk was doing her thing I was looked at this stupid “gravity pen” and clock stand. It’s an ugly metallic pen that clings to this holder magnetically. But what really caught my attention was this: The box/advertising flier said this was the PERFECT gift for the following people:

Co-worker
Camp Counselor
Mail Carrier
Good Friend
Neighbor
Pet Sitter
Administrative Assistant
Coach
Bic Collector
Spouse

Wait, wha- SPOUSE?

Yeah, this gift will go over real well for an anniversary gift. Odd that “Girlfriend/Boyfriend” wasn’t included in this list. Maybe because divorce is harder to do than just simply dumping someone for giving a crappy gift.

Athletes On My Shit List

leave a comment »

So Tigger did his thing today.

Missing his smile and aura of invincibility, Tiger Woods finally showed his face to a waiting world Friday and apologized again for cheating on his wife, without revealing the scope of his infidelity or when he will return to golf.

Standing at a podium before a presidential-blue backdrop in a hushed room of his closest associates, Woods stumbled a few times as he read a 13 1/2-minute statement. He offered no new details of what happened or what’s next, except that he was leaving Saturday for more therapy.

I don’t care. The only people Woods needs to apologize to is his wife, kids and family. OK, maybe his sponsors, too, in some second-tier sense.

I will say this. While I don’t really give a shit about most athletes, I did like Tigger. And I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel disappointed upon hearing of his shenanigans.

McGrady To The Knicks

leave a comment »

Looks like T-Mac won’t be getting to the second round of the playoffs this year either.

On a day of furious deal-making, with players scattered across the continent, the most important name was the one that never passed through the transaction wire, or through the lips of Knicks officials.

The Knicks acquired Tracy McGrady, a seven-time All-Star, from the Houston Rockets. But the deal, and the day, was all about LeBron James.

By trading Jared Jeffries and acquiring McGrady’s huge expiring contract, the Knicks created nearly enough cap room to sign two superstars in July — with their sights set on James and whoever wants to share the spotlight, whether it is Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade or Joe Johnson.

I hope for McGrady’s sake his injuries have healed and he can continue being productive. I’m curious to see who the Knicks end up getting in free agency this offseason. God help us if LeBron James actually becomes a Knick; there will be another white-out in the Northeast like there was this month. But instead of snow it will be sportswriter spooge.
