Shop, Skydive and Be Merry :: Daily Grind #172

Only 24 more days 'til Christmas! Wooo-friggin'-hoo! Better get on the ball. Please, do not forget about Ventipop when doing your online shopping via Amazon this year. It helps put a little jingle-jangle in the Venti coffers with only a little click of the mouse. If you're stumped on what to get that special sum-sum in your life, there are a Santa's sleighful of turnt up products (learned the proper use of the word "turnt" from the article below) over in the Ventipop Gift Shop. And if you're one of those smarties who likes to read (gasp!) books or know a shortie who prefers books over people (like me!) then the Ventipop Books page probably has a lit recommendation. Clicking any of these three options would be like a Christmas present to me and the hundreds of staff here. (Kidding...still just little ole me!)
