No photo of it, though. (The pic to the left is NOT the cake.) I must go and pick up dad's cake today, and finish wrapping the gifts.
In celebration of dad's birthday, today's 13 will feature...
Thirteen of the WACKIEST AND WORST Birthday Presents I've Ever Received (Not to be ungrateful, but sometimes you just open a gift box and think "what the heck?")
1.) A christmas sweater with blinking Rudolph nose. - My birthday is in August.
2.) A Bissel vacuum cleaner, complete with a bazillion torture attachments, from my mom. - The gift that keeps on sucking. (A birthday/late housewarming gift. Dual duty!)
3.) One gorgeously wrapped blue box from an aunt. Upon closer inspection of the tag, I noticed it read, "Happy Graduation, Elizabeth!" *_* Contained a pretty ceramic jewelry box that plays music - a gift I still have.
4.) A large tupperware container of magentic blocks - to give to Oldest. (???)
5.)Two used t-shirts. (Actually two separate gifts. I actually don't mind used clothes, but some circumstaces bear remembering.) One shirt - a Jimmy'z shirt with spiders. I'd admired it on my friend the week before. (Incidentally, she'd swiped it *cough, cough* gotten it used from a cousin of hers. She then boxed it and gave it to me on my birthday. The other T, an aqua blue Guess t-shirt with English Bulldog pups on it. Friend B who gave me the Guess T wore the shirt to a party the week before (I SAW THE PICTURES!) and she told me the shirt was new. I thought that was pretty strange. For the record, I wore the heck out of both shirts.
6.) A gag gift bag with thong underwear, Ky, a bottle of Bean-o, Nair, and red lipstick...along with some more crazy stuff in there. Okay, ladies... so what're you trying to say? :p
7.) Chocolate covered ants.
8.) The scariest babyface crocheted wall hanging you have EVER SEEN.
9.) A half burned candle with a christmas bow stuck on it.
10.) A box of stuffed animals my friend was going to take to the Goodwill, but never did. Box came to me wrapped and everything. Ha ha, very funny. I took it to the goodwill for her. ^_^
11.) The miraculous, amazing, wonderful INVISIBLE pet! Actually a "real" toy. A slightly-larger-than palm sized metal cage with attached water bottle and hamster wheel. Apply batteries and voila! You have an invisible pet!
12.) A copy of Cool Careers for Dummies. Why, thank you very much! ^_^
13.) A tiny vial of glitter-filled pink water on a chain. Front label reads: (large letters) Elixir of Immortality. (And in small microscopic letters.) Do NOT drink! Back label reads: Caution! Contains small parts. Not meant for human consumption. **I love this thing!
There you have it. My 3rd ever Thursday 13! May you have a wonderful day! ^_^
