DSC_0794this friday mak + me + the bf went to a white elephant/dirty santa party. and no, “dirty santa” is not really what it sounds like. it’s just the kind of present exchange where you’re allowed to bring something used or weird or free from your house. and it was a major success.


DSC_0789creative beer tub guys. notice all the simpler times (asure fact that tony is near by)


DSC_0819look how cute we are. there were 40+ people playin the game. I was #13 and unwrapped mak’s present, a cute little bobble egg LED light from the CAMH gift shop. (mak tony and i totally had alliances going into it, we knew we wanted her gift and made eyes at each other when other things we wanted got unwrapped – so we could be sure and steal them for eachother)


DSC_0883here are some of the gifts:




DSC_0848we made a sorta rule that anyone who unwrapped a book had to open a random page and do a little reading. matt’s reading of Miley’s autobiography was by far the most entertaining !!!


DSC_0880i ended up with this cute little embroidery/ screen printed plaque thing that is now hanging in my room (thanks downtogether matt i LOVE it). i had to steel it from a girl who had just had her pillow pet stolen by Mak. sorry girl – we just really wanted you stuff.



DSC_0903then there was this really cool magic man who performed a million and one card tricks – all of which were “get out of town” freaking good. i squealed so many squeals. how do you do it magic man ?


DSC_0916here’s tony taking “close your eyes” to the extreem – its just what real good magic does to you.

    You guys look like a fun group… We love the white elephant gift exchange as well…

    They are great fun.

    Next year you might want to try the Lefty the White Elephant story…. It adds the right/left game into the traditional white elephant rules… Adds some fun!
    Here is a link to the story:
