So, it’s taken me permanently to choose just whose present was the worst (or best, although “OMG, WTF, what the hell were they thinking” outweighed “OMG! You didn’t!” by about 493 to 1).
A great deal of the provides were what I phone call “bowling sphere presents” — stuff people get you since they want it for themselves (qv: pepperdove getting a VCR … at age 15 … when there was only one TV in the home … after the household VCR broke. Elizabeth getting an air conditioner — then being told they couldn’t pay for to set up it!). as well as then some were “I like you, you’re perfect, now change” presents. (qv: Riva getting used laser hair removal! Mickey being provided a can of Slim-Fast!)
Then there were a great deal of “I don’t understand what the word “present” means, so I’m going to provide you this random item” (like Ann’s partner providing her a RED lace TEDDY FROM A PREVIOUS sweetheart — seriously, wtf? — as well as Colleen getting a PLASTIC travel URINAL, Beth B getting PAPERCLIPS, Denise getting utilized MAKEUP).
Some provides seem to have been thinly-veiled assassination attempts: MsManners got two bottles of Fen-Phen (from an ex, natch) as well as Angel getting a basket of hair clips as well as dollar-store scented soap from her sister-in-law when she A) had no hair after undergoing chemo as well as B) was extremely allergic to everything, which the chemo exacerbated. (I would have pressed charges on that one!)
“I believe you need to have indicated this for somebody else” seems to have been one more style — Neighbourhood.Gal got (at age 11) a Teddy Ruxpin (remember those?) as well as a remote managed monster truck as well as a skateboard (and she lived on a street without any sidewalks). Cookie got what sounded like the worst coat in the history of Coats: “VIOLENTLY acid-washed denim, knee-length, lumberjack style jacket with bright white, puffy fleece lining.” simple got a BOX of DICKIES. In 1987.
I was heartened by all the people who got ironing boards, gown forms, stitching machines, as well as sergers … except for bad RavenzTarot, whose child got a new stitching maker (after trashing RavenzTarot’s old machine). That maker truly must have been Ravenz!
Is it any type of question it was difficult to decide? I selected two bads as well as a good. The good-present-winner is anthrokeight, whose parents had her kindergarten art job of an angel professionally framed … (altogether now: AWWWWW). The bad-present winners are La BellaDonna, who got a pendant as well as earrings SUPPOSEDLY from her husband, however considering that he easily didn’t have any type of money on him when it was time to pay for them, ended up being gotten on her own dime … … as well as Sewducky … well, I can’t provide you details of what Sewducky got that was so awful, however let’s just state this: If you are going to provide somebody WWII memorabilia as a Christmas present, you may want to pick some FROM THE WINNING SIDE. just a tip, there. [So, guys, email me your mailing addresses as well as I’ll ahead them to Rita so she can send you a copy of that pattern!]
It was SO difficult to decide, though, that I am going to provide out a lot more prizes. If you left a comment about a poor (or good!) present, email me as well as I’ll send you a complimentary gown A Day measuring tape! (Let me understand what comment was yours, as well as don’t fail to remember to include your mailing address!)
Here’s what they look like, iffen you don’t remember:
Happy new Year!
