What I can do

I can type 60 WPM
I can hand code valid HTML
I can drive a stick shift.
I can make pan seared Ahi tuna with a wasabi cream sauce.
I can build a computer, completely from scratch.
I can rotate my own tires.

Knowing all of this, why can I not wrap a mother f’ing Christmas present?

Ok, that’s not entirely true. I can *wrap* the box. That’s not really the problem.

It’s what it looks like when I’m done with it. Think blind ‘tards with those safety scissors. Got it? Ok, mine look worse. Ugh. It’s probably because I really really really hate wrapping gifts that I suck at it. Or, I really suck at it, which is why I hate it.

Either way, we shall add this to the ‘why db needs a personal assistant’ list. The position is still open for those of you wondering.

Man, is Christmas over yet?

  1. yea, but can you wrap presents?

    Also, no offense or nothin’, but I was hoping for someone with different body parts, if you know what I’m sayin’ 😉
