I got the perfect Christmas gift.

 

A "Nothing Switch."

 

It is a switch that does nothing.

 

When you are tired of being busy all the time, and want to do nothing, just press the nothing switch.

 

You are now doing nothing!

 

Excellent gift for retired people, busy executives, hyper children, or anyone who just needs to do nothing, once in a while!

 

Did anyone else get "the perfect gift?"

 

Cheers!

. . . the nothing swithc dosent it bore you?

 

 

That's the only draw back to the nothing switch.  At my age, if I press the nothing switch, I generally end up falling asleep.  

 

But if I fall asleep, then I am actually doing something.  I'm busy taking a nap!   :mellow:

 

Cheers!

I got a new mouse and a keyboard... :blink:


Usually, I do not get online before 1:00 PM or after 10:00 PM (my local time).

 

So, if I do not reply to a thread where I am currently active, make sure you check my local time to see if it's time for me to be online or not. :)

I got a PS4 finally. I primarily game on PC but I've been wanting to play Bloodborne so bad so it was great to get. Nothing says 'Holiday Spirit' like slaying beasts in a blood soaked street.

When it comes to material things, boxes wrapped up in pretty paper, there is no such thing as the "perfect gift".

 

What matters is spending time with the people you love and care about.

 

In 2007, I got the most perfect things of all-2 beautiful grand-daughters.

 

September 2015 my grandson arrived in this world. 

 

I have my husband, 2 children and numerous cousins which are more important to me than "things". 

 

There are 2 elderly aunts and 1 elderly uncle and time spent with them is precious to me.

One son sent me some bobble heads of characters from one of my favorite games. The other son sent me a big bottle of BBQ sauce from my favorite BBQ in Texas. How cool is that? Bobble heads and BBQ! B)
