Best: Two years ago I received a gift from my mom. It was a small porcelin Precious Moments box with my birthstone on the front and a key sticking from it where a keyhole. Inside, it descirbes the month (Thanksgiving Day and other holidays to come) and it also described a November birthday. It is so cute.
Worst: I received a laptop for Christmas last year. I really really wanted it for some time (try several years). Then, I got it and now I can't be off of my computer at all. I do homework, post on the FORT, run mailing lists, talk to friends, ect... I'm just wired!
