"Some say Mary's playing began to exceed Winifred's when she lost the beehive and picked up the feathered cut. But no matter what the story, it was clear from Winifred's gaze that this Christmas morning was the beginning of the end for The Baker Sisters' Family Fun Duo."
My mom spoiled me and got me some fun stuff: Anne Taintor calendar, faux fur leopard coat, some cute purses, Wizard of Oz monopoly
I gave her the free iPod touch that came with my laptop in September, I got my dad a williams sonoma certificate and a leather planner, got my sister some fingerless gloves and a vicki's secret certificate, got my friend Esme a wedding planner and my friend Jill some new shoes and jewelry.
Very awesome! Sounds like you received and gave some amazing goodies. =)
And LOL about Winifred!
Well I didn't ask for anything, never really do. That said I got a calendar that came with magnetic poetry, a new phone since I recently lost mine, the collectors edition of the seven samurai and a bok about the worlds worst weapons. I got my dad a book about the chronology of UFO cover ups from 1947 to 1973.
I got a ruby cross necklace, loads of cool clothes, and a gift card to the movie theater, to name some things
world's worst weapons sounds awesome!
I love it! my favorite weapon is a infantry mortar from Japan in WWII. It worked fine, but the americans translated it wrong and though it was a knee-fired mortar, resulitng in several attempts to use it as one and several soilders with broken legs.
I wish my son could learn that. lol.
I was soooo dissapointed in his greedines. He opened his NUMEROUS gifts, and then asked me where the rest of them were.
OOOOH! We got chocolate recorders so our song was cut short :/
"Thelma and Louise would become quite upset when their friends and family told them their rendition of 'Silent Night' sucked, and shortly after this photo was taken began a crime spree."
That's cool. =)
Recorders are really fun.
I wish I had a brother. That's awesome.
Musical training begins early on the Vulcan homeworld.
-"Dad got us these chocolate recorders! Play, then eat!"
-They didn't have the heart to tell them they were supposed to blow out, not in.
I gave my mom a picture of my brother and I (she only wants that every year). I made my friend Le Tigre a background of Heath Ledger as the joker that says "Some men just want to watch the world burn". I bought my guy key shaped pendants to go with the lock shaped pendant I have. I'll give it to him when he's out of jail.
I got a new 4 gig MP3/Video player (SQUEE!), a new tire for my car, a movie gift certificate and a letter from my hunny in jail. <3
And your guy is in jail? :( You want to talk about it?
Basically he and his dad went into business with a creep who, last year, stole both their identities and did felony money laundering and foreclosure fraud in their names and put my guy (Saul) in jail. One year later, same charges, different juristiction and they arrested his father too but the outcome looks promising. We're hoping he comes out in January. :) <3 He's been in there since Halloween so I'm anxious to see him.
Oh honey, that's soooo lame. :( I hate when innocent people are incarcerated. *hugs*
"Although they looked
like chocolate, Esme and Doris were disappointed to discover their recorders were actually just recorders. Doris's teethmarks buffed out eventually."

WOOHOO Sweeney Todd in concert! The only performance by Patti Lupone I've ever enjoyed. lol.
I love that concert! It's world-class.
My Mom gave me the vhs before she died and I made the mistake of lending it to someone, and she never returned it. I'm pretty broken up about it still.
And nice gives, and gifts my dear.
I'm glad for it. :) I love watching it. The other just had sentimental meaning to me, even though it was a vhs, because it was from my Mom.
Aww! Is that you in the icon? So cute!!! =)
And great presents. Except the umm.. perfume sample card? LOL. Reaaaaally?
I got a dvd with EVERY matrix movie, and a copy of the 4th pirates of the carribean...

That's a great book.
And the... fourth Pirates of the Carribbean movie? *blink blink*
Did someone get a very nice bootleg? lol

LOL, okay, cool. You had me searching google and everything. haha
LOL! That's like the only song I can play on that. I remember we performed it in like second grade. Haha!!
I should teach Little Random how to play that, he'd think it was a blast. he got a slew of kids instruments this Christmas. A kids according, kids keyboard, and magic drumsticks, that you can tap against anything and it makes the rhythm you're tapping out like it's a real drum set. He's thrilled. ;)
Aww! Cool! =)

using poorly made recorders did not bring about the white xmas Jan and Trudy had hoped it would....
Janet and Claire rushed through the final 3 verses of "Deck The Halls" to try to finish before their ill-thought-out (though tasty) chocolate recorders melted.
LOL, awesome! Love it. ;)
