Basket of Coolness

Growing up, I was a nerd. In my family, I was the not funny but tried to be, never had a good comeback, always trapped in an embarrassing situation, terrifyingly shy outside my home and very close friends (well, we all were), bossy big sister my little brother called "Kristi-pissti". Most of my friends would say, "No, no...", but my siblings are already nodding, saying, "Yes, yes..." Not so deep down, I was a pretty, little, geek.
And I'm fine with that, now.

Just before the New Year, my siblings gave me something. It was... SO PERFECT.

A big basket with:
-Your official writing shirt! *see picture
-Your favorite brainfood #1 (chocolate covered cinnamon bears)
-References! (just in case): Write Right, by Jan Vanolia, and The Pocket Muse, by Monica Wood
-A jar of Magnetic Poetry (tiny words for writer's block)
-Your favorite brainfood #2 (another bag of chocolate covered cinnamon bears)
-For Inspiration and Enjoyment: Whitman Poetry and Prose
-For more Inspiring and Energizing tunes! ($15 iTunes card)
-Fuel for Thought! (Costco jar of mixed nuts)
-Ahhh. Relax... (a delicious variety of herbal teas and a funky travel mug)
-Godiva chocolate.
-A monogrammed notebook and matching magnetic bookmarks. K. I looked at them for an hour.

Who is the nerd, now?

Thanks, Shell, Trev, Mike, Jenn, Craig, and Carrie. You made my New Year.
