How to be nice.

If you live in a foreign country and you have to work on Christmas day and you are surrounded by people who are away from home over this festive-family time, and maybe will get homesick about that - you should probably do something nice for them. Here is how:
Step one: buy small gifts for your co-workers.
Step two: Write out gift tags for your co-workers by hand on fancy gift tags.
(i used these gift tags - i designed and printed them myself. cause i'm fancy. you don't have to be fancy. you can use whatever you want...)
Next, you will need some pretty doilies, brown bags, twine or string, scissors and a hole punch.
you will also need a stash of chocolates and candy to add as fillers into the brown bags.
guess how many of these ended up in my mouth...

Step three: Put your gift inside your brown bag.
Step Four: Fold brown bag. So easy, even your dog can do it.
Step Five: Fold your doily in half and cut it. Don't let your dog do this part.
Step Six: Glue your doily onto your brown bag. (actually, you don't even need to cut the doily in half. you can just fold it over the top. I just ended up with 22 brown bags to fill and only 19 doilies. {how did that happen?})
Step Seven: Tape the doily down on the top of the bag. you can use any tape- washi tape is the best, but you can use masking tape or coloured tape. I used tape that actually looks like medical bandages. Punch a hole into your bag and thread your gift tag through with the string.
Handy tip: If you have a lot to make, I suggest cutting all the strips of tape and doilies and string before hand to make the production line smoother...
(Also - if you have male and female co-workers. start with the boys. they are less likely to notice/care and by the time you get onto making the girls' gift bags, you will have perfected it down to a fine art. Plus, you will be nervous in the beginning of not having enough chocolate for everyone and therefore be more stingy - leaving a heap of chocolates left at the end - which can be poured bountifully into the girls' gift bags.)

now, that's nice.

It's in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use web for that purpose, and get the most up-to-date news.

First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running
off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?

I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
Thanks a lot!
