yeah, the hubs is TOTALLY gonna steal this from me! : ) but wait, there's MORE!!!
see all that loot? there are nifty pens (i love nifty pens) and penguin socks (i'm so wearing those to work tomorrow) and chocolate covered coffee beans (no, of course she didn't send them to me opened, but, ya know, i had to taste them) and heart earrings and magnets (the girl totally wants to steal those) and dog bone shaped paper clips (the girl already has stolen some of those). how freaking awesome is this????!!!!! thank you thank you thank you astarte : ) i officially forgive you for dropping me off your blogroll : )
now, i suppose you want to know what embarrassing moment won me this nifty prize huh? ok. i'll share.
ok, so my most embarrassing holiday was when i was about in 8th or 9th grade. i had only recently started my period. we went to wv for thanksgiving where ALL of my extended family lives. i was hanging out at one grandma's house and my parent's were at the other grandma's house. i started my period. since people having periods had not lived in that house for about 10 yrs the only supplies my gma had were those long, ginormous mattresses that attached to belts. one of my aunt's (10 yrs older than me) took pity and called my mom and told her to stop at the store on her way to my gma's and get me some real supplies. so, when my folks walk in w/ my supplies in a brown paper bag i was pleased--right up until my dad whipped out this huge box of pads in the living room--in front of all of my uncles who were watching tv--and asked if i needed these. i was humiliated. all the adults laughed an i basically avoided the lot of them as much as possible the rest of the day.
astarte made some comment about my dad just not having a clue that this would embarrass me, but no no no. he totally knew and he did it on purpose.
astarte--this totally made my day! thank you!
*and i have no idea why i over used totally and nifty in this post.
