So, today at work the talk about the gift exchange thing took off. Whatever. That's fine and peachy keen. But somewhere along the way, one of the threads of conversation took a sharp left turn and one co-worker, who shall remain nameless, mentioned that blankets are nice. This does, in fact, make more sense in context, but that's not really relevant.
So anyway, said co-worker is also a maaaajor Steeler's fan. Whatever. I live here, but I don't have to care. But it did spark discussion amongst other co-workers about gifts. I simply turned around and asked the nearest Steeler-fan of the two if they make blanket sized Terrible Towels
. I mean, I can't
be the only person to think up such a tacky thing. And a decent fleece blanket, split 3 ways, should make a nice gift.
Now, here comes the dumb part. I was thinkin' on my way home. Mostly, it was about how it'd be cute if there was a blanket of terrible towels - not a single uber-large one, but a patchwork blanket of actual towels.
Cute. Yes, you heard me right.
Thank goodness, I had some stops on my way home, and as a point of reference I checked at the local drug store, and the things are about $8 each. Not very do-able financially.
It's just.... It'd be cute! I know how to sew it and everything! And we have this hand sewing machine as Seen On TV and everything, and it'd need a cotton filler and a back of some sort, but that's easy if you have a handy fabric store and there's one right across from my doc's office -
and thankfully, this is the point where I remember I have no time, little energy, and not much care at all about the Steelers. Whew.(but it'd still be cute)
