2010 SlashDraw Toys for Tots Update

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Lauren’s Shopping Spree for Toy’s for Tots 2010 is complete – Thanks again for all of you who “fanned up” to help raise some additional dollars for this year’s Toys for Tots donation.

Each year, Executive Vice President of Giving Stuff Away (Lauren Kiesling) goes on a sugar-infused shopping spree for all the toys we will be donating to Toy’s for Tots. This year, her efforts filled more than one cart and in total we donated a little over $400 worth of gifts to kids who deserve them.

Head to the Facebook page for the pic – and take notice that she’s a good company kid and is wearing the merchandise from the shop :). Happy Holidays!!!

Sleepy Santa

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Okay – after a long and heated debate yesterday we at the SlashDraw.com offices retired for libations for the evening.  That didn’t help either.  The topic:  What is Santa Claus’ condition at dawn on December 26th.

Our office is completely split:  One side contending that because he is magical that Santa doesn’t need sleep, but rather is just a fat cookie-powered beast covered in wool that can pull non-stop all-niters at his choosing.  Frankly, this concept scares the hell out me…I’ve seen this tried by folks in similar physical condition to Santa while in Vegas, and let’s just say that usually it appears their cookie power must have run out mid-stride to the keno tables because their usually face down in an ashtray or something.  But I digress.

The other side of the office contends that, with all due respect to the big man’s magical powers and cookie-lust, that he’s still a dude that’s been in air for a full day of chimney diving and that has to be exhausting.  Look, next time your on a long flight take a look at the condition of the people around you getting off the plane…they look like the guy at the end of Clockwork Orange!  Imagine if they had something to do beyond bother you while you’re trying to sleep and eat your Biscoff cookie – they’d never make Greenland on the present run!

So…before we could land on agreement it was closing time – so the side of the office with the drawing skills made the call.  Santa is dog-tired, borderline strung-out by the time he lands.

We’ve plastered him up on the homepage as our version of decorating for the Holidays…enjoy!
