I hate shopping. I hate going to the mall.
But you know what? I don't have to leave Hampden to shop. Here's our little Holiday Gift Guide Picks. But we haven't finished walking around the Ave, so more to come on Friday. See, I'm also lazy. And if you're lazy, perhaps if you ask nicely, we can add on some of these items to your online orders from us. Wait, that's way too complicated.
(Descriptions of the items were written by Benn. He just made them up.)

Nothing screams cleanliness like a brick of pate. Mm... clean, whipped liver... These handmade soaps look not unlike a brick of pate and are sold by the slice. The perfect gift to give to get that "what the hell is this" expression out of someone.
