Most useless gift
#1
My stepdaughter gave me a couch pillow that says New Hampshire on,  because according to her, I like things that say New Hampshire.    I  have no idea where she came up with that reasoning,  because I asked for a new pair of slippers,  but what the hell,  right, it's supposed to be the thought that counts I guess. 

Anyone else get something totally useless to them?  What is it?

I'm not sure what was worse the 2 scarves or the hat hmmmm. I can't think of anything.
You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I have a stocking that says, "no candy, just cash".   Sarcastic

Everything I got, I like very much, another year without a goat though  :(

I once got a pitcher from a girlfriend, she said it wasn't necessarily for filling, that it was art. It's true what they say about art being in the eye of the beholder. This thing is my most hideous possession. I think it's on a shelf in one of the guest rooms, if it is I will post a picture and you can see for yourself.

I was a poor kid with 5 siblings, so I appreciate any gift I get. Now my kids get 2-3 presents and they love them. I'm not one for burying the tree with gifts.

My husband got me a zoodle maker. You know, one of those gadgets that you put vegetables in and make noodles out of them. Why the fuck would I want to do that? Is it not good enough to just steam or saute vegetables anymore, I have to make noodle shapes from them now? He's goddamn lucky that's not the only thing he got me.

Art is very subjective  (at least that's what the artists I know tell me)  years ago,  I sold pottery at music festivals.    My biggest sellers were sage bowls and incense burners.   One fall, I was juried into an artists open studios event.  I brought bowls and mugs,  as well as a few incense burners that I had leftover from the summer.     Half way through the event,  some old guy picked up the last  burner I  had left, and said  " you should have made this look like celery,   it would sell better if it looked like celery "    yeah,   ok,  I'll get right on that. 

I wouldn't have minded the pillow so much,  it it had been locally made,  but it was made in china and she bought it at Walmart.    *shuddering *   I hate fucking Walmart.

I hate Wally world too. I've been thinking of trying one of those "my pillow" things.

Bannecorn has fallen on hard times. He was coming into work still a bit sloshed and he was sent home a few times. I had a nice heart to heart talk with him and he was OK for a week or so but fell back into under performing due to his love of booze. His wife is a real loser and they were a few times over to my house, she just swore like a sailor all afternoon screaching every once in a while. I hated her and told her to stop swearing so much, she went off in a huff and never came back. 
Bannecorn was found in a room at his sisters house after being in there for 3 days naked and writing all over the walls he was put in the hospital. I guess a person does not just stop drinking after swallowing 12 gallon of booze every night. He was found unresponsive and was able to come out of it. I have not heard from him in over a month and his phone is off.

It's a pity as I was the one that got him the job 15 years ago after doing Karate with him for a few years he is a black belt and very good at it but the alcohol has taken over. I will probably see him again one day pushing a shopping cart full of alum cans.
