My Fellow Inebriates,
The LBHQ computer got a brain transplant this week, and for the few minutes while it waited for its new hard drive, I was not the dumbest thing in the house. I could use a brain transplant myself, or at least an infusion of neurons to keep the existing two company. Then I wouldn’t keep forgetting stuff—like the presents I received last month.
I always hope for one present, but this year I got three, the first a Festivus gift from Sips of Jen and Tonic:
I am going to be giving him (it’s a him, right?) Vinderpants as well a wine bottle opener. Vinderpants are underwear for your wine bottle! I actually saw these two years ago, and have been dying to give them to someone. Never had the perfect moment until now. It’s definitely something I would own, and is liquor-related.
I got confused, however (even though Emily and Ashley had fully explained Festivus) and waited by the mail slot for a while. Then one of my neurons figured out that the Vinderpants were a virtual gift. Ahhhhhh! So I made my own Vinderpants and toasted Jen.
I’ve never received such a thoughtful, appropriate, and well-targeted gift.
Oh wait…my Nana & Papa got me this:
An LB-sized bottle of Scotch!!
Yeah…that was pretty awesome. It’s even nicer than the LB-sized mezcal with the worm I got a couple of years ago.
And would you believe it, Santa brought me one too. YES, I STILL BELIEVE IN SANTA, DAMN IT.

OHMIGOD! You are quite crafty. Seriously, you could market those underpants, and give the Vinderpants people a run for their money.
Crafty, nothing! Those belong to five-year-old Miss V. I get unwillingly trussed up in them quite a bit. The Vinderpants people must be geniuses; I doubt very much I could make a dent in their market share. Once again, I am speechless with thanks.
Oh, but they’ve outdone themselves with THESE: http://mcphee.com/shop/vinderalls.html
Those are awesome!!
Who doesn’t want to sit around in vinderpants sipping delicious vino?
Totally! Most people can fit into their Vinderpants but I am lucky.
