    Me and my sister always get an orange in our stockings, even now when we're in our 30's!

    My ex husband gave me an automatic cleaning litter box. ???

    A girl in college who drew my name in this Christmas exchange thing gave me a bag of candy. Apparantly she didn't know her boyfriend had eaten most of it and put the wrappers back in. Also she forgot to take the card out from the person who gave it to her.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    oh jody, I'm so sorry. I have no wise words but I think funny stories of those ugly or crazy gifts put smiles on our faces and that helps with all the crap we deal with.

    I laughed at each person's horrible gift, not in meaness or pettiness but b/c most gifts were given with love and you wonder what the hell were they thinking?

    Okay except fishin guy - cookies that taste like cigarette smoke - yummy!

    Don't worry about it, so sorry to read about the fire, hope you can manage to put it out of your mind enough to enjoy your Christmas. I agree with kratos, buy your self something nice, like his aviator to.

    the orange thing has great meaning to me. we got oranges at the end of the vietnam war. it was nice because we were very hungry for something fresh. we lived in california too, but we still could not afford to buy any. a neighbor gave them to my mom. she was deserted by my dad and she had six kids. he ran off with a fourteen year old girl. mom gave us oranges at christmas until she died. I still put them out in rememberance of seven starving people in the early seventies whos only food came from ww2 sea rations.

    The worst was from my dearest husband, and just last year. A bluetooth something or other thing for an ipod accessory. I don't have that accessory, I listen to my ipod about once a year. And I hate electronics in general. What a dolt!

    But don't tell him I told the world how much his gift sucked - I had to act pleased.

    My aunt one year was big into seeing plays....so she thought it would be cool to get us each something from the play. I do not remember the play that my gift was from, but I got this really cheap black shiny bag with the word BIG written in big red letters, two used ticket stubs, and the play bill. Oh how I loved that!

    A few years ago my aunt gave me a Krups egg boiler.. I only eat scrambled eggs and this item stayed shelved for a few years until I off loaded it onto someone else.
