    Perhaps they were part of the paper barons' suite of paper furniture. You should be thankful for their sacrifice, you ingrate!

    And, BTW, glennajo, is your dad's name Jim? They might be the same person. Crazy Uncle Jim actually came out ahead that Christmas. He stole my brother's dress shoes on his way out the door.

    Nope, it's Joe. That's where I got my middle name.
    Too bad, I was pretty sure we were related there for a second.

    I can't remember getting a weird gift. But once, my friend got a lightbulb for Xmas. Not xmas lights, mind you, but those, single 'I have an idea' kind of lightbulbs.

    I remember getting some pretty weird gifts. For my 14th birthday, I received 4, count them, 4 barbie dolls. I had stopped playing with dolls when I was 5. Then, I received bath salts and all this smelly lotion stuff when I was 10. I didn't even take baths! And, I was a little tomboy-ish, so the smelly stuff didn't help!

    When was the last time you watched a Disney movie?

    when I was five, my Grandmother of all people once gave me a toy (she thought). It was one of those "Spencer " like gag toys,you press a button and this little kid drops his drawers and leaks. My Grandmother loved it!, my mom(the Prude) didn't. Niether did my teacher for show and tell.......(Never did see the little guy again.)

    This thread is hilarious!

    Let's see, my grandma used to always get everyone in the family Right Guard deodarant, Crest toothpaste, socks and underwear (plain white) for Christmas. She would usually get something else nice too, but you could count on your hygiene needs being taken care of.


    My in-laws used to always get me clothes at Christmas, and for some unknown reason three years in a row I got PURPLE CORDOUROY SUITS with plaid blouses that had high ruffley necklines. Did I EVER wear purple cordouroy? No. Did I EVER wear ruffley blouses? No.

    It made me want to go up to them, shake their hands and say "hi, I'm Molly. I don't believe we've met."

    Get this guys:

    My cousin's boyfriend gave me this beeper type contraption last christmas that served as a personal body alarm. He explained: "if you ever feel followed or like you're about to be mugged, just press this button," which of course he demonstrated, and it made this ear-piercing screechy noise.

    I was wanted to say "Thanks. I'm sure this will keep those pesky rapists and ax murderers away from me."
