Christmas is coming and I am already 110% ahead of the game.
My Christmas cards have been mailed.
My shopping is done.
Even my wrapping is complete.
I’ve annoyed even myself with my efficiency.
Personally, I am thrilled at the selection of gifts I have bought for my friends and family.
None more so than The Swede.
First, I bought him an industrial size box of Swedish Fish.
As a joke, naturally.
Then I proceeded to BREAK INTO the box and ate a bunch of fish so I had to get him something else.
And please, dear Swede, if you are reading this, stop now or your surprise will be RUINED.

I custom made a tee shirt for The Swede.
Yes. I. Did.
Because I could find a tee shirt that said “Eat, Sleep Hockey” in English, but not in Swedish.
And I figure WHY BUY IT IN ENGLISH if he’s going to be in Sweden wearing it?
It should be in Swedish.
So I translated “Eat, Sleep Hockey” into Swedish “Äta, Sova, Hockey.”
Then I printed it in YELLOW lettering on a ROYAL BLUE tee shirt – the colors of Sweden.
How’s that for a present for you?
I REALLY hope he likes it!
You can’t say I didn’t make an effort. . .
P.S. I got him a SECOND gift. Just because I do that sometimes. Check out this awesome mug I had custom made for him:
