Red, Green and One Size Fits All x 600+ = An Elf-ing Record!

Chris and I went to Bryant Park today for a record breaking event. We spent the better part of the morning and early afternoon in an elf costume roaming around The Pond Ice Sakting ring in the heart of Midtown. Yes. The things we will do since we have free time and for entertainment in good o'l NY. It was ridiculous, funny, a major laugh and simply a good time at the expense of our own vanity. No, not only did the one-size fit all elf costume feel like we donning a fat suit, it was not flattering in the least and gave us awful hat-hair only felt could. However, it did keep us warm for the 2+ hours we were lottering around the skating rink mingling with other fellow elves of all shape, sizes and age. It was an Elf Party and we got complementary lunch, giveaways (...oh, the IPod, n' those fleece blankets) and the (oh, the possiblity) of winning a 42" LG flatscreen (...pleeeaaasseeee). We also kept warm by dancing around with Xmas beats from the live DJ on site and even took part in a learned line dance belting out, "ABC Faaaammmiiillly," in our unison sunseting move. It was most silly and all we could was freaking laugh and join in the madness. I got an Aisan shoutout by the MC, who was roaming the floor for a lucky dancer to win a 128G IPod. I was so close, I really thought I was there, he even noticed the extra decorative attempt in the horendous elf costume, in th end, he walked away laughing and handed the (wonderfully new and beautifully boxed Ipod) to some dude. <Deep Breath> I have resolve. I will survive. So, we didn't nabe any freebies (they were flying high above our heads and those under the 5.3 radar rearly are in luck), nor did we roll home with a new flatscreen but we did score a pair (aaha!) of season skating tickets at Bryant Park. Niiiiccceeeee. Oh, the pine tree scented tree ornaments were a nice perk too. It was so nice waking up so the smell of "nature," in the room today. Sweeettt!!!! Or is it...Freeessshhh?! Ha. At the end of it, it was an event that just taught us to not take things so seriously and, golly, get in the darn spirit of the holiday season! K...Happy Holidays All!!! A jolly good laugh at our expense! It's the season for gifting after all. <3
