Victor, his name is Victor.

My beret wearing poet husband, Justin, was awarded an honorable mention in Nevada Arts Council Grants Program. He got a fat prize check in the mail for his efforts.

I've been encouraging my husband for the past two weeks to purchase this, because it's a major award.

...but he has decided against enjoying it's symbolism in our window on a daily basis. Instead he decided to purchase this:

A brand-spankin' new Creative Zen MP3 player, which will display his photos, record his voice, and has a compass in the stock.

Justin's choice of major prize was supposed to be delivered yesterday (Should I say "in a crate marked frah-gee-lay"? No, you're right, I shouldn't.) but nothing showed up on our porch. The UPS tracking system says it's been in Salt Lake City for the past 24 hours. Justin is besides himself. He hasn't been this excited since his Ovaltine decoder ring was due in the mail.

Ohhhhhhh farrrrrkkkkkkkkk.

I too am waiting on some packages from UPS. Mine contain blood encrusted latex Halloween props and a costume that looks like this:

I know what you're thinking. You'll shoot your eye out.

  2. messed that up..
    Hey Don't those usually travel in pairs? (the costume)

  3. I think Jerrster is right about pairs. Most of them I've seen (no, all of them) are paired. It is an interesting Halloween costume but I'll bet not many will wear one of those out Trick or Treating from house to house!

  4. I bet that costume wins a lot of booby prizes. Har har.
