Every year I buy myself a gift, wrap it up, and write on it “To Scot from Scot.” Here is this year’s gift to myself.
Guess away … and I’ll give some clues throughout the day if they are needed … and I’ll announce the winner tomorrow!
I’m going to say a new pipe
A bag of special coffee.
No starbucks, but maybe a bag of better coffee, like Intelligentsia or Colombia from One Village.
BTW, if I might prefer that it was a new I-Phone, since I don’t drink coffee. 😀
updating #3, Five Senses
A lovely Cabernet Sauvignon.
A kindle fire. Just a guess.
My guess is a new coffe mug.
An invitation of some sort.
A brand new pen.
I would say a book.
A CD – do I have to guess the artist and album, too?
P.S. I’d say it was a nook except that I don’t think that you’d give one away after having bought one for yourself!
One of those thingy-ma-jigs? Or do I need to be more specific to win the prize?
A copy of your very own “King Jesus Gospel” signed “To: Scot, You are an amazing writer!” From: Scot!
One of the new 80in plasma LED tvs. BTW, I didn’t know they made bags that big.
A churchhill sized cigar.
The thing you knew you wanted that your wife would never buy for you.
Kindle Fire. :o)
2 r/t tickets to Zante, Greece for 10 days, including hotel, meals, and daily massage. :-)>
Daniel Kirk’s new book on Jesus and Paul? (supporting my seminary. Also, apologies if this is a double-post. My Firefox on my work Mac has had a habit of not posting comments here lately)
A Kindle, of the non-Fire variety.
Maybe it’s an iPad?
A bag of Intellegensia Colombian La Loma.
A bag of Intellegensia Colombian La Loma and maybe a new aero press.
A Kindle Fire pre-loaded with all your books (and perhaps Daniel Kirk’s “Jesus Have I Loved, but Paul?”
an ABBA CD
and since my comment was “too short”, grr, I’ll add my other guess: iPad
A St. Louis Cardinals World Series cap! Since you are a fan of the Cubs, I know how much that would mean to you.
I think it’s either a Kindle Fire or the Kobo Touch
(so that the comment won’t be too short, I’ll add that we purchased our first bag of Intelligentsia coffee on a day trip to Chicago last week. very good!)
So far wild guesses and wishful thinking. Perhaps a hint?
On the wishful thinking side … an all expense paid trip to Scotland in April or early May?
To all you people who don’t read the Bible at face-value…
CLEARLY it’s a Peanuts gift bag! (I would’ve at least got myself a book or something.)
merry christmas, scot!
Hey, I’d take the Peanuts bag . . . if Scot would autograph it. [That is, if I don’t win the actual, fabulous gift.]
Guess #1: Vince Guaraldi trio — charlie brown chrismtas…
Guess #2: Accordance Bible Software package add-on
another Mark Twain book.
My guess is a Christmas CD.
…or a Hemingway book. NOT an e-book.
Plane tickets since I could use a few!
I think it must be a kindle
I’m going with either:
new annual devotional or a gym membership renewal
Is it an iPad 2?
Shaving brush/straight edge razor. Perfect for an old-school fountain pen kind of guy …
The King Jesus Gospel!
a new Rolex watch…hee hee hee…
A hand grinder for coffee or an aeropress.
a new garlic press (can we guess twice or more?)
The Vince Guaraldi Christmas cd from Starbucks.
(and what a fantastic gift bag!)
Has to be the Chia Professor!
A MacBook?! (wishful guessing!)
Or perhaps just a bit of scotch?
Looks like a bottle.
I would guess Scotch, but I don’t think you would promise to mail anyone that with the prospect of a minor winning. So, I am going to guess some kind of coffee flavoring.
mmm . . . since we’ve received no hint, I wonder if the game is over . . .
OK, folks, the bag is a one-dollar gift bag from Target!
A DVD of “A Charlie Brown Christmas”
I think….it must be a gift card to an e-book subscription service.
Starbucks Christmas Blend (she asked hopefully)?
A Swiss army knife! Hmmm. But would a pacifist buy himself an army knife? May have to rethink this.
an iTunes gift card
Is it a Charlie Brown collectable $1 bill?
Is it an iPhone 4S?
A box of PG Tips Tea
bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon / merlot blend.
is it a snuggie?
Either the first Bible translated by a woman (Juliia E. Smith) or a set of Asian teak bar stools.
A skipping rope?
I’m late to the game, and the guesses may be pretty close since Scot’s only made 1 comment! Is the fact that it’s a Target or a Peanuts gift bag a clue? A Kindle Fire w/out its box might fit in the bag, or perhaps a Kindle Fire cover… A gift card for books, or an Intelligentsia gift card would fit, too.
it’s a pan band CD of Caribbean tunes
since it’s a Target, get it, Target bag, my guess is a Colt .45 automatic
a copy J. Dwight Pentecost’s *Things to Come* (hard cover) or C. Caldweld Ryrie’s *Dispensationalism Today* (hard cover)
a Chicago Cubs soda can holder
a nicely framed picture of Aksel
To Phillip: I think it was a good guess. A Swiss Army Knife is SO much more than just a knife — it’s a portable tool kit. Check out this model: http://www.swissarmy.com/us/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Outdoor/Swisschamp-XAVT/53509.
Craig (#74), that’s cool but ridiculous. A pocket knife should be able to fit in a pocket. Of course, if that is what Scot gave himself, I’ll take one!
I believe that skybot laser tag would provide some good grandpa bonding time: http://www.gadgetreview.com/2009/11/picoz-skybot-attack-flying-robots-with-laser-tag-that-can-blast-each-other-out-of-the-sky.html
a gift card to Target? (since they do have Starbucks on site)
A new fountain pen.
