Two years in a row!!

*** Mike Murrow!! I KNOW you are going to read this. You should feel very, very bad for what hapened last night!

Last night was our house Christmas party and it was good times...except for what I got in the gift exchange. If any of you read last year's blog about our party, you'll remember that I got a box of CEMENT from the aforementioned Mike Murrow. I was like, "Dude, you better bring something NICE to make up for that next year!"

Mike and his roomate Rob came to our house last night carrying this HUGE packge and I was totally NOT going to choose it during the exchange. I had learned my lesson. But then I was in the kitchen talking to friends and Mike comes in and tells us secretly that it is REALLY nice, he IS making up for last year, he bought a matching one for his MOM and other lies like that. So then, I thought, "Hmmm...maybe I will give him a chance to redeem himself from last year. If it IS nice, I can use it at work or in my room or something.

The gift exchange began! There was some amazingly hilarious gifts this year, including "The Ovary of Eve" book for roomate Laurel, "Preparing for Adolescence" for my frind Karen, a DVD on belly dancing for David, a ceramic statue of a Hawaiian couple kissing, and other such gems. When it came to be my turn, I had made up my mind. I was going for it.

My first clue should have been when Mike started laughing hysterically when I choose it. I started ripping off tape and opening the huge box. It was a nasty used-to-be-white chair! Ugh! I got duped 2 years in a row! It smelled so bad, the cushions were pretty much grey...what the heck?! I didn't think anything could top the cement. I was wrong.

Moral of the story: Never believe anything Mike M. tells you. Ever.

Ok, I'm off for vacation, everyone. I'll be back the 28th. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

1. i feel ABSOLUTELY NO remorse.

2. there is no way that my gift was worse than the "OB" someone brought.

3. as far as lying to you, well, that is just a gift.

4. it is a white elephant exchange. a white elephant is 'sposed to be something totally worthless.

5. maybe next year i will bring something really nice.

i am still laughing my a** off about the whole thing. i went to sleep laughing and woke up laughing.

thanks for making my week!
