HOLIDAY SHOPPING

I'm trying to find a gift for my sister's only brother and can't decide between getting something useful that he won't like, or something that he wants but will never use. I've been looking at them new gadget whatsers that come with the clicker-thing where you can stand across the room and push a button to get the whatchamacallit to go on or off. The only color they come in is a sorta darkish whitish shade, or a lightish kinda black though...and the one has six of the connector doohickies, while the other one has only half a dozen. And should I get one that runs off the house plug-in or the kind that don't need nothing but them little roundy things which run all by their self? I'm sure if I get the one that shows the time and stuff he'd rather have one with a clock. It's all so confusing...maybe I'll just give him a card for gift thingy and tell him to buy his own damn thingamajig.

Your sister's only brother? Hey, that's you! Just explain all this to the 16 year old salesperson and he/she will guide you to exactly it is that you are talking about.

Hey, Oogie, I've got one of those doohickies and I really like it. I would recommend you get the one with the clock.

Tom's birthday is Tuesday and with Christmas so close it's really hard to think of two great gifts. Thanks for the idea. I'm getting him one of these whatchamacallits! Frannie

Okay...just found out that the guy I work with's neighbors sister's cousin that lives next door to this guy who bought one for his uncle's brother in law said they didn't like it at all. First off, it was from that foreign place over there where they paint stuff with the kind that's bad for you, and on top of that it had teeth or something..,AND THEY'RE BLUE! Don't sound too safe to me. Now I been thinking bout one of them contraptions they advertise on tv all the time, don't know exactly whatchcallit, but this guy Bob in the commercial got one and he was better at golf and everything than all his friends after that. And he goes around with this big grin on his face all the time, his wife does too...her names Alice cause they kept saying "See Alice", don't know what that was all bout. Anyhow just don't get one of them things with the poison paint and tooth in it.

I always thought that was a kids' book they were advertising.

See Alice run.
Run, Alice run ...

I wonder what she was running from.

I dunno if it's the same girl or not, but back in the 60's there's one named Cooper, real ugly, and at the music section of K-Mart the other day I saw this little record thing on the cover says they got her in chains...weird man.

Apparently our customer service person is Helen Waite. Whenever I need something or want to file a complaint, they tell me to go to Helen Waite. She must be pretty busy though.

Is it in poor taste to get your husband and your boyfriend the same thing for Christmas?

I don't know, Lodi! Ken? Do you mind getting the same thing Lodi's husband gets for Christmas?

I think that's a good idea Ees,just don't tell 'em. I hate shopping, just got back from Wal-Mart, got in one of them check it yourself lines...them things are frustrating, don't read the code or tells you somethings in the checkout area, or skip bagging or whatever. This time it was the lady in front of me....she was wearing one of those static cling kinda dresses and I noticed it was all bunched up kinda wedgied in back. I figured to save her from being embarassed I'd yank it loose so no one else would notice. Well she got all huffy at me...so I apologized and poked it back where it was and then she got even madder...just can't please some people. They said I can't come back in the WalMart neither...that's what I get for being thoughtful.

Well, its "buy one, get one free" and you know how I love a deal. Ken, I hope you appreciate the "I Lodi" tattoo gift certificate. The only thing that will make it unique from Scott's tattoo is that you both get to choose where on your body you want it.

Lodi,
If you get them both the same thing, at least you don't risk getting the packages mixed up. Last year, my husband seemed really bewildered by the silk sheets and rhinestone handcuffs, and the boyfriend was downright p*ssed about the shop vac and drill bits. Oh well........

My thoughts exactly! I hate getting them confused all the time. To prevent future mishaps, I'm really going to have to find one with the same name as my husband.

I still don't understand why guys get so pissy when you call them the wrong name. It was a mistake, get over it, move on! Sheesh.

Dump the guy, Diane. If he doesn't know the way a shop vac and set of drill bits can enhance your time together ...

I got this idea for making some gifts, don't know if that's tacky. This guy lives down the road a ways has a well-hole he wants to give away,and instead of trying to haul a hundred foot well hole back to my place I was thinking of getting a hole-saw and cutting it up into more managable holes. You know...I could give my buddy with the farm a bunch of post-holes or maybe make a good-sized swimmin' hole out back. The uses are almost endless....just gotta find somebody who'll loan me a hole puller.

multiply the size by the distance and put it in a blender...

then go to the local butcher and ask this..."what's a pound of flesh worth?"

take his answer and put it in the blender.

THIS IS IMPORTANT...Pulse Three times...

That's the answer...

Lemme know

Well...I done went and done some tradin'. I met this guy who said he'd do some barterin' for that ol' well hole and I was kinda gettin' flustered bout the hole thing anyhow. So he had these pills that make you smarter, and after a little hagglin' we settled on me givin' him the wellhole plus fifty bucks. I took one of 'em and boy it tasted awful,kinda greenish-grey and slimy. After studying on it a while I called this dude up and told him them pills looked and tasted like rabbit-poop, he says"See there! You're gettin' smarter already!", so I reckon they're workin'...

Oogie may I recommend one of those new flummery agitators. Mine came with a variable speed oscillator. Racing lourge and a zener diode pack were optional but I splurged. If you can afford it and you heart can stand it, there is a cosmic rectifier available but it has to come from China. Unpack it set your trellis thermalator and you are ready to go. I hope his helped. Happy Shopping.

I just got one of those wood-clenched graphite writing utensils with built in synthetic correction attachment, but I haven't been able to use it yet 'cause I can't figure out how to turn it on....anyone know where the on/off button is on these things?
