Reasons I like this include: it's a bear, you can pretend you've been eaten, you can scare other people, you can go as a bearskin rug for halloween, you can be a life-sized teddy bear for your sig. other, and lastly and more importantly, it's a bear. Who WOULDN'T want to go camping with this thing?!
In other news: for my Valentine's day, I got a phone call from a military base in the Middle East and a potted orchid in a box...which I have yet to open because I've been in Texas, and not in NY, where it was delivered.
When Albert found out I wasn't going to be at my apartment for the 14th, he laughed and said, "well, when you get back, that dead brown plant in the box by your door was an orchid." It was quite funny to both of us; I'm not sure why, but we got a pretty good chuckle-fest going for that one.
