Ok, so these gifts weren't actually sent to me as personal Christmas gifts from the star of Travel Channel's "Bizarre Foods." They were presents for spreading the word in the food world about the awesomeness of his show. But, I can still admit the gesture to be a lovely token of esteem.
And then I opened the package…
Here's what the UPS man dropped off to me at the office:
1. An autographed photo of Andrew smiling over a big ladle full of big bugs. Cool!
2. A 2 DVD set of "Bizarre Foods", Collection 1. Ok, very cool. My son and I will have fun watching those.
3. And a snack in case I get hungry while watching. A box of SALT N' VINEGAR CRICK-ETTES!
Thanks so much Andrew, really, you shouldn't have!
