Crap at Wrap(ping).

You want to know what is my least favorite thing about the holidays besides the constant droning background noise of Christmas music, the incessant give-me-money charity emails, and the pressure to spend money?

Wrapping presents.

I hate wrapping presents. Mostly because I am terrible wrapper.

See below.


Here is the gem that I gave Captain Apollo for his birthday. I didn’t have wrapping paper because I had just finished wrapping a present for my roommate Varenka, which turned out like this:

I gave you a few different angles so you could truly appreciate how beautiful this package is. I seriously do not know how this happened, but I only had the end of the wrapping paper left, so that’s what she got.

I don’t know, internet. It always starts out okay, but then the paper gets all poufy and bend and I panic and just tape everything down.

At least you can’t tell when they’re under the tree.

    oh my… perhaps some youtube videos would help. Makes me want to reach through the screen and help you out there.
    I would easily wrap 50 gifts(well so as long as its in a box and not some oddball shape) than pick out 5 gifts.
    I’m awful at finding useful/meaningful gifts.
