Flip Flop Awesomeness

I'm fairly certain our receptionist at work thinks I'm running a drug cartel through the mail. I get all sorts of packages in varying sizes and shapes all the damn time. Many of them are work related, or close to it. But many are of the personal nature and rather bizarre for even me. And that's saying a lot.

Take Friday for example. I received several packages, and in said packages were a collective of "Hello My Name Is Awesome" pins, chapstick that tastes yummy, a solar plant (you read that right), and tootsie rolls. Some are from vendors and some I actually ordered. I'll let you decide which came unsolicited from vendors.

I feel like this is a good place to explain myself. You see, I work with these marketing vendors who send me weird ass shit in the hopes that I'll fall in love with the samples and feel the need to buy bazillions of whatever it is they sent, and also pay to put our logo on it. (Hellooooo run on sentence.) And sometimes, I get these random catalogues full of the awesome and I impulse buy weird ass shit to send to my friends for fun. I am totally THAT girl.

Now back to Friday.

This box? Is full of the awesome. It promises to feed me. And who doesn't like that?


And these pins? Are fucking hilarious people!
I have quite a few of them, and if you're good to me I'll give you one.


But this! Is the prize of the day. 
It's a solar plant. That moves with the light and never needs watering.
BOOM. Top that people who send me shit.


So what's the weird shit you receive in the mail? (And don't give me that bullshit about books, bills, and holiday cards. If you read my blog we're either friends or internet lovers, and that means you're probably as weird as me.)

  1. OMG! Those pins rock! And I'm a whore for Tootsie Rolls (trufax: we bought TWO bags of 95-count Halloween bags - we did not hand out ANY).

    The strangest thing I've ever gotten in the mail was ben wa balls and strawberry lube. From someone I'd never met. (It was a "buzzy buddy" swap on a message board, and it was WEIRD.)

  2. Chibi, I actually spit out my coffee when I read your comment. Strawberry lube! That's hilarious! I once received penis shaped pencil toppers attached to a party invite. I put them on the light switches at my friend's house. He was not happy when he discovered them. Haha.

  3. My girls - all 3 - have pins and stickers with those phrases. I think they're meant for adults but since my girls walk around w fake tattoos I'm pretty sure people think their mom and I are crazy parents.

    hilarious post all the way around

  4. Man, I am in the wrong line of work! No one ever sends me anything preposterous. I've got to say, though, "We Feed You" would be the best way to get to me too.

  5. Wow. I do think of myself as sufficiently bizarre. Yet it's hard for me to remember .... OK wait. My Mom mailed us an entire Christmas tree one year. It was just a miniature one, but it was real, as in alive, and came with the twelve days of Christmas ornaments. She knows I dislike Christmas but was worried that my then boyfriend (now husband) and I would be missing out if we didn't have one.

    Whew. There. I was afraid I was about to fail some test and turn out to be normal. :)

  6. An entire tree! Mini or not, I am totally jealous! I am officially upping my standards on things that are mailed to me.

  8. I never get cool stuff in the mail! The only thing that comes to my work are catalogs for baking equipment :-(

    But the solar plant sounds awesome!!!

  9. I bet you shop at Thinkgeek.com. If not you should! You’ll find all sorts of cool stuff. I’m a big catalog girl myself. I love to flip through them and fantasize. Sometimes I even order something. Recently, I ordered Ninja Bread Men cookie cutters. My husband got a Han in Carbonite ice tray (We’re going to use it as a chocolate mold. It’s going to be a fun Christmas!

  10. I love think geek! And so do many of my friends. When in doubt, my friends know I'll like most anything sold there.

  11. Those pins are definitely my favorite of your deliveries, but that solar plant is pretty awesome (haha) too. Nice work! I love getting packages in the mail; sadly, they're always something I've paid for. *sigh*
