When I was in NYC with Tina, Aaron went to our friend's salon open house party. He recently found out that he won the door prize. It's five bottles of Bacardi sitting in a specially made tray that lights up the bottles.

He thinks it makes a nice nightlight in the kitchen.

The entire situation is starting to feel like the leg lamp prize in The Christmas Story.


  1. Oops, I meant "lamp" instead of "lamb". Heh, heh. But then again, I'm sure you knew that.

  2. I'm laughing about the leg lamb reference but interested in that tray, Maybe you can put some really nice bottles or vases on there instead of those bacardi ones. Hmmm, you know what happened to that lamp. . . . . .

  3. Will it say "Frah-gee-lee" on the box it arrives in? I love that movie *laugh*

  4. At least you can put the bacardi to good use (and at least he didn't want to put it in the living room)!

  5. Long time reader, first time commentor...
    My husband received a "major award" in our family Christmas exchange. He thinks the leg lamp replica looks smashing on his nightstand. I just wish it wasn't made out of plastic...otherwise we might have a little dusting accident.

  6. Aaron is too smart for that. I think you should just open them up for shots at your next gathering and let that be it. He may not like it but he'll get over it. I know you don't/can't drink so it would be perfect. Maybe Tina or someone could be the "bad guy" - I say like Aaron isn't reading...:).

    It reminds me of the time I asked the guy who was trying to sell my ex a genuine NASCAR tire at the brickyard... "DO I LOOK LIKE THE KIND OF WOMAN WHO WOULD HAVE A TIRE COFFEE TABLE IN HER LIVING ROOM!?!"

    for the record - no ma'am, I do NOT!
