A Ramona Quimby diary--maybe some of the chicks here are familiar with the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary?

I was a huge fan of the books...when I was 7 or 8.

I received the diary when I was 17. It was from my aunt, who I'm pretty sure never even knew I read the series. She gave my 15 year old sister a 5 piece puzzle--that wasn't even sealed and brand new.

It was a banner year of presents from her all around--let's just say my lone male cousin got off lucky with socks.

I used to love those books!!!



When I was 13, my grandma got me the worst pajamas ever... it was a one-piece gray thing that was relatively see-through with red cuffs at the wrists and ankles and little red star buttons down the front. And she thought a 13 year old would wear this..... why?

This year, we had a yankee swap at my work Christmas party and we all thought it would be funny to bring crappy gifts. I found an old Super Nintendo game so I wrapped it up and brought it. The one I got was some random Canadian dvd that no one had ever heard of. One kid got a bag full of random stuff that a girl had found around her room... a half-empty bag of chips, some candy wrappers...

We felt kinda bad because our boss went out and bought a nice present, and here we were exchanging crap. Oh well, it was funny

...sorry, the way you ended your post just cracked me up...

Seriously, though, soap, eh? Gee, how exciting.

Hehe, those of you talking about clothes-I read in the paper today that most kids put clothes at the bottom of the list of things they'd like to get for Christmas. .

Let's see...worst gift I've ever gotten...I guess I'd have to say a CD of 50s and 60s instrumentals that I got a couple of years ago. My friend got it for me because she knew I liked older music...true, but I don't really listen to the instrumentals (there's a few I like, but overall, no...). So that CD's just collecting dust somewhere.

I think the funniest/saddest part of this is that this was obviously not picked by a 10 year old, but the parent who despite approving their child's attendance at Boy Scouts gave a very un PC present to another child.

i loved ramona. the ramona books are still popular with young girls today.

one year, a boyfriend gave me a blender, a handy chopper, a toaster, and a set of dishes.

it was a cold christmas that year, believe me.

Wtf, bg? What kind of romantic sentiment is a friggin BLENDER? I hope you dumped him on NYE.


The worst gift I ever got wasn't at Christmas, but my birthday. I was 11 and my aunt gave me a Denise Austin workout tape. Something like "Denise Works Out To The Big Bands".

WTF?!
