So Christmas is pretty much on the bus and only two stops away and I have yet to buy a single thing. On the plus side, as I do this every year, there is a nice festive nostalgia to the impending sense of fear, panic and ultimately… shame. Ahhh Christmas.
I am sure I’l pull something out of the bag last minute and everyone will be very happy with their gifts but I just wanted to pick your brains and see what you were buying (if anything) for your nearest and dearest.
p.s. this is totally the right place to show off if you are buying your partner a yacht or a horse or a trip to the Moon or something. Although tbh even if you have just bought a carrot and painted your face on it I will still be jealous that you are more prepared than I.
I am thankful that sharks don’t have legs and are confined solely to the oceans and seas.
What happened to Y and Z?
We have a Bialetti expresso thing that you put on the hob. It’s pretty old school but it makes the best coffee ever.
Top dessert tip: Shot of expresso over vanilla ice cream = insane win!!!
The guy advertises beer and big ass trucks!!! Awesome.
Would be great to serve up some other people’s compliment sandwiches on this thread too. Get involved.
thought I would start this thread as
a) I love the Envato community and wanted to state why
b) There are things here I don’t like that I would like to see improved
and c) I am hungry so therefore thinking about sandwiches
Now the concept of a compliment sandwich, if you’ve never heard of one, is to provide a negative piece of feedback sandwiched between two good bits of feedback. It’s a nice way to provide constructive criticism whilst also being complimentary.
Anyway, here is mine.
Slice 1 – I am working on a new template and found an awesome piece of audio that has the perfect style for this animation although it was 1 minute too long for my needs. I contacted the author and within the hour we had spoken and are now working on a custom version of the track to suit the timings of my work. How awesome is that!! I can’t imagine being able to have such a plethora of talented people to call on who are so willing to work in collaboration on projects. Well done Envato!!
The filling – still too much imitation on the marketplace. Lots of those build your own whiteboard kits going live at the moment, all with the grey wash marker style and paper cut out aesthetic. Variety people!!! It’s the spice of life and would maybe make this sandwich less sour.
Slice 2 – The London meet up. This was just plain awesome! Great to meet so many people with varying degrees of involvement in the Envato network, be they authors, programmers, tuts+ subscribers or staff. A definite slice of multi seed wholegrain with toasted pumpkin seeds in the crust to finish us off there. Yum!
So there we go, my compliment sandwich. Now I have to go to the deli!!
