More Spidey Christmas Gifts!

That’s right, I have more Spidey gifts that I received for Christmas. I sort of forgot them, as they were essentially “gag” gifts that my brother Ron gets for me. Every year for Christmas and/or my birthday he and I swap theme gifts. He gets me Spidey stuff, and I get him Mets stuff. We’ve been doing it for years, and it is great. Mostly the stuff we swap is silly, inexpensive stuff, but that’s entirely not the point.

Anyway, Ron and Tony-o (his son, who also loves reading comics) presented me with this trio of gifts. Spidey Stickers, Spidey lunch bags, and a Spidey ice pack. Aren’t they mad-cool?

Yeah, I thought so too.

Anyways, when I spoke to the Customer Service Dept. over at the NY Post, they said that Spidey would be back on Sunday, January the 14th. Personally, I’m going to double-check this Sunday, just to be on the safe side. I didn’t check on Jan 1st, so I’m going to be very irritated if it was there I and I missed it.

Oh, and to not slight my lovely wife, she just acquired for me the 2007 Spidey calendar (at half price, no less!) This isn’t me (or her) forgetting, the calendar is something that you can really only get at a mall, and she didn’t visit one this past season, but found herself at a Border’s book store the other day, and lo and behold there was a calendar, so she grabbed it up for me.

Isn‘t she the best?
