"gifts" from Peter

Too Busy Living likes to give me things that stress me out, make me laugh, or clutter my apartment. Sometimes, the idea backfires on him (as was the case with my trickle Zen fountain, which I still have and use); sometimes, I refuse to take the items with me and they end up getting used by the donor (as was the case with the "Hello Kitty" slippers).

These three books* were donated to the library in my building's laundry room. The family scrapbook was gone by the time my clothes were dry.




These items are still looking for a good home:



* Peter, I removed the pages you inscribed and saved them. I'm not totally heartless.

What a guy he is. I have a lovely keychain he gave me. It says "flirt". He knows me too well.

Wish I'd known about the Hello Kitty slippers before he got 'em back.

You HAVE to do a post on all the mail Peter sends you.

There's more where that came from!!

And seriously, I thought that "scrapbooking" would be right-up your alley. I'm glad at least you decided to keep, if not read, "Tired of being Tired."

It's also nice for people to see that not all of the "gifts" I give can technically be called "manslaughter."

Holy repetition.

Crucible said...

Thank goodness you use some. You can't make it too easy for him to guess what will cause you stress.

I thought that kind of crap existed only in America.

What did he inscribed in the Curves book?

tornwordo said...

I had a friend "dump" me once because I told him I gave away the shirt he had given me for bday. It was pink stripes. I don't do that.

George Larson said...

He inscribed:

This here's a Curves book.

At least it's not matzoh ball soap or a Mr. T. Keychain! That was my first chanukkah gifts from UC. What does one say to such crap that the giver is actually PROUD of?!

Butchieboy said...

Peter just sends me naked pictures of himself.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Butchie, you always have the good lines. You are the Chandler Bing of this blog, love.

Carrie said...

poor butchie.

Also, re: the curves book, just what is author Gary Heavin anyway?

madamerouge said...

pg: discount stores, methinks
andy: non!
teh: we're your biggest trading partner. A lot of crap flows between our borders (Nickelback, knicknacks). And, we all know what Heavin's heavin'
ag: Butchie's my "bing-a-ling"

dead: "They may have kept you out of the Curves clubs, but here, finally, is a program for you. A program for you and the girls--where laughing during 'The View' and crying during 'How to Make an American Quilt' are considered exercise! Love, Peter. Aug 8 2004"
