The 1st annual Whore your loot post!

Okay, come on everyone. I know Christmas is about Jesus and family and love and sharing and all that, but I also wanna know, "WHAT DID YOU GET?"

I got a ton-o-stuff this year. In addition to the plethora of Sweet Pea products detailed and depicted in an earlier post, I also received, from Jason:

-A waffle iron (seriously, my favorite gift)
-A pair of pajamas
-A nightgown (I really love sleeping)
-Season One of The Office on DVD (which, hilariously, I also purchased for him!)
-Season One of American Dad on DVD
-Tweezers (which he wrapped in about two yards of paper and snorted whilst I opened them)
-A really touching, beautiful card in which he wrote how happy he is that I'm his family and how he knows that the four of us will have many beautiful Christmas' together
-Totally 80's Trivial Pursuit (I opened that one and shrieked, "WOO! WOOOOOOO!" It was better than jewelry. I'm a total trivia nerd)

From my parents:
-A $75 gift card to Target. Which is really nice, but I actually asked for a gift card to Old Navy, as I am practically nude and need some new clothes. But whatever. Very nice anyway.

From older sister:
-The Pink Panther on DVD and a some popcorn and candy (for movie snacks)

From younger sister:
-More Bath and Body works stuff (not Sweet pea though. She gave me the ones to help you relax. She knows I'm a bit, um, high strung).

From my brother:
-Framed drawings that he had done of both of my children

From my 95 year old great-grandmother:
-A check for $10 (is that not the sweetest thing you've ever heard of?)

I really made out like a bandit this year.

How about you guys? Everyone, don't be shy! Tell me what you got!

Your husband is good! Mine sucks. I got the dvd "World Trade Center". The problem is we had a huge conversation about how I think it's too soon for movies like this, I couldn't watch them, I still remember that day, blah blah blah. Yet he still got me the movie. Duh! He also gave me a green bag of Lifesavers. Anyone who has known me for more than 5 seconds knows it must be the blue bag. He gave me a bag of Reisen candy- I have never heard of this candy and it sucks.
So, can I come over and play 80's Trivial Pursuit with you?

Well, since he royally screwed up my birthday (October) I think he did so well for fear of bodily harm.

But whatever! I racked up!

And yes, you can play Trivial Pursuit with me. I'll be the Care Bear and you can be the Trapper Keeper. ROCK!

Can I play, too?

Here's a link to a gum drop tree... I highly doubt that SIL paid that much for the one I got though.

Wow! You did make out like a bandit....but I'm jealous over the 80's Trivial Pursuit game. I love trivia.

I got a new cell phone by default (the hubby finally got him a cell phone and kindly upgraded mine), and socks, LOTS of socks!

Glad you had a Merry Christmas!

I got two Dover CD clipart books. Which would make me really happy except he had a total tantrum about how much trouble it was to order them online (from Amazon -- really difficult user interface). So now whenever I look at them, I feel like shit. But the clip art is great! I think I'll get over feeling like shit once I start using the images.

(Imagine the Le Chat Noir, you know, from the French advertising poster, looming over a city while tiny inhabitants flee in terror. YEAH.)

That Chick Over There said...

Other than the puking out both ends, yes it does sound quite nice wopalockapino! :)

The gum drop tree is awesome!

And I would covet those clip art books! Wow!

SJ, I love socks! :) Maybe not 10 pair, but I do love them.

Gosh, it sounds like you guys got some good stuff too!

Speaking of 80's Trivia:


I was working part time in a five and dime. My boss was Mr. Magee. He
was six foot four and full of muscles and walked like an Egyptian, but I
was happy to be stuck with him. One manic Monday, while I was busy
working for the weekend, I overheard him make a careless whisper. He
told two of my co-workers, Jack and Diane, that I gave love a bad name.
Well, I got so emotional, baby. I told him to say say say what he
wants, but don't play games with my affection. He told me it was hard
for him to say he's sorry and not to worry, to be happy. Then he blamed
it on the rain. He was so out of touch. It just took my breath away.
I couldn't fight this feeling any longer.

I asked him "What's love got to do with it?" He told me to get outta
his store and his dreams and into my car. So I figured I might as well
jump. I cut footloose, went home and called my girl, Jenny. (You
already know the number) She was on the other line with Amanda. They
were talking about Mickey and how he was so fine. That blew my mind! Was
she really going out with him? I told her that I had just called to say
I love her. She told me she had been saving all her love for me, but
now she was looking for a new love. Hasta la vista, baby.

I thought "I can't go for that - no can do! Bring me a higher love!" I
called up some of my old west end girls, hoping that one of them would
want to get physical all night long (all night). First I called Billie
Jean - she told me to beat it. I called Rosanna - her sister Christian
blessed the rains down in Africa and then hung up on me. Come on,
Eileen! ... no answer. Nobody told me there'd be days like these! I
was feeling like the owner of a lonely heart. Then, out of the blue, my
best friend's girlfriend (she used to be mine) Roxanne calls. Yes, the
real Roxanne. She told me she still hadn't found what she's looking for
and that she wanted to take on me.

I said "I thought you were Jessie's girl."

She said "Don't you want me? You don't have to put on the red light -
I'm on my own."

What a feeling! I had the eye of the tiger. Who was I f-f-f-foolin?
Roxanne drove me crazy like no one else. She's a beauty! She blinded me
with science, and weird science at that. There was always something
there to remind me of her and I just knew that I'd have the time of my
life. I wasn't about to la-di-da-di. I jumped in my little red Corvette
and rocked down to Electric Avenue. I got my mind set on her.

When I got to her house (in the middle of her street) I ran. I rapped
on her front door and to this rapper's delight, I heard a voice say "Who
can it be now?"

"Here I am, the one that you love", I replied. I let my love open the
door and was immediately lost in her eyes. I felt like a virgin touched
for the very first time.

She loosened her blouse and said "Rock me Amadeus!"

Well, I felt it was my prerogative to bust a move. I told her "I'll
tumble for ya!" as I pinned her on the stairs, hungry like the wolf.

Just then I felt an invisible touch on my shoulder. "Turn around bright
eyes!" said a familiar voice. As I did, Jessie hit me with a
sledgehammer of an uppercut that spun me right round like a record. He
was hangin' tough and continued to roll with it, knocking the wind from
beneath my wings - broken wings by this time. He rocked me tonight, for
old time's sake, beating me from head to toe, until my true colors were
black and blue and blood was spilling from my mouth like red, red wine.

"You don't owe me money for nothing!" he snarled. At this point I was
livin' on a prayer.

I crawled back to my little red Corvette and drove home thinking about
how my tainted love had cut like a knife - how it seems that every rose,
truly, has its thorn. No longer do I want to know what love is. Love
stinks.

I got...
Dishes.

Trade husbands?

That Chick Over There said...

Mine stayed up with me until midnight on Christmas playing Trivial Pursuit. We were so tired we started answering everything, "White Ice Cream!" and "Pete Rose!"

I wouldn't trade him for green money. Not even a lot of it!
