Always a sucker for a little Christmas hobnobbing, I signed up recently for the Simian Secret Santa being hosted by the lovely Dr Monkey von Monkerstein and his cohort, the equally lovely Zaius. I drew the name of Samurai Frog, and as I was woefully unfamiliar with his work, did a bit of lurking about his site to see if I could suss out the perfect virtual gift for him.
It turns out that this particular amphibian is somewhat of a celebrity. I couldn't even begin to count all the thinking blogger awards and various other accolades that have been heaped upon this prolific blogger. So I thought that one thing that Samurai Frog could surely use would be a virtual bookshelf, upon which he can proudly display all his awards. His sidebar is looking a little cluttered, so I am sure that he will thank me once all those awards are nicely organized. And I do believe that it expands so there will be plenty of room for future additions.
But Samurai Frog appears to be quite a busy man by all appearances, with a big interest in pop culture and films and animation and he seems to have a vast collection of YouTube videos as well. This got me thinking that perhaps a bookshelf alone may not suffice, so I have expanded upon that gift to include an entire virtual office. Money is no object here!
But it still may get a little claustrophobic in that office after a while, so I thought that Samurai Frog should probably also have something like a tardis handy. He could no doubt park it in the virtual garage. And the added bonus of this particular tardis is that it doubles as a tardis cookie jar. So even if he doesn't feel particularly like going out anywhere this holiday season, he can still get good use out of it by storing some tasty Christmas baking in it.
Since Christmas is not complete without a little baking, regardless of how virtuous we are trying to be, I thought that Samurai Frog might enjoy a tardis cookie jar filled with these deranged shortbread cookies that we bake every year. I apologize that we have already eaten all the poopy pants Santa cookies, but I understand that Samurai Frog is rather fond of boobs, so I've added several big boobed hula dancer shortbread cookies into the mix in their place.
Enjoy, my new amphibian friend! And happy holidays!
