Hey! I just might end up asking for gift vouchers! That way, I get what I want instead of what someone re-gifts to me(sil, long story, if I was certain that she stopped reading my blog; I'd tell the story.).


finally, an easy one! zcvsl

As an alternative, how's about: "I'm really grateful for whatever I get. Just remember to wrap the receipt with whatever shite you give me."

Or " I'm really grateful for the baggy sweater with arms of a different length. It's a nice thought, but I'd prefer it if you spent some money. Cheapskate".

This is why I do a wish list. I will most likely get something I want and need. Of course, there's the occasional genius that decides to get creative and buy me something "just like what you asked for, but better!"

Sounds like a new drug for venereal disease: vagexb

She actually gave us a quesadilla maker that was given to her for her birthday. The only reason I know this is because her birthday card was still in the box!! Useless git!

I found out who sold them, and bought myself a jumper. I might post a picture with me wearing the jumper and call it the Quesadilla Maker! I wonder if she would get it...

She loves the sweater, btw. ;-)

I love this card! I also love gift certificates. I'd much rather get a gift certificate than some piece of useless tat that someone thought I'd like.

What gets me is the well wrapped and haven't-a-clue-what-it-is pressie, "The bottle of Wine"

And its usually cheap plonk from Tesco...."why thank you,wonder what it is?Oh?lovely...grrr

Well, two birthday parties last weekend.... because I couldn't be arsed to even get a gift certificate, cold hard cash was the present of choice.

Herge... do you really need that word verification. It's annoying.

bmyurnqe - next I'll be having to do the whole fucking alphabet. Please Herge... dispose of it.

Sniffy said...

Word verification is very "in".

I don't care Tina what's in Tina, word verification sucks.

Green always works! Then you are not "tied" to using a particular store, although Target & Wal-Mart cards are pretty useful.

that's exactly how I feel about it.

Sniffy said...

Well I'm sorry April, but some of us with thousands upon thousands of hits each day seem to be more prone to spam. Word verification is very "in" for us.

hohoho! That's cold, Tina!
