Tasteless and tacky.

If it makes you feel any better, my little sister just asked me for a 5k rubber mermaid tail for Christmas. Yep. I have no idea why anyone would buy one of those unless they got a job as mermaid at a theme park or something. Which she does not have.

 

Why she thinks I have 5k to spend on mermaid tails, I don’t know.

@excitedtobeMRSF:  LOL!  I love when I get the “we bought a place and now need stuff” letter.  I always think “buy a smaller place then you’ll need less stuff”.  It wierds me out because usually the stuff they’re asking for is pretty expensive, I have to work hard for my “stuff to fill my space”.  “Stuff’ doesn’t come cheap.

I feel bad, our family sent out holiday lists already…but we are Jewish and Hanukkah this year starts the day BEFORE Thanksgiving, it is so crazy early this year.  I am super bummed because I normally do most of my shopping on Black Friday and this year I can’t.  Oh well.  On the plus side I don’t think I have ever asked for free stuff to fill up my living space.

 

 

@MissAquamarine:  Now I kinda want a mermaid tail, I did not even know they make them.  I don’t really like to swim and not a huge fan of mermaids, but now I want a tail…

some people have no shame. my sister in law is the same. she and her husband are constantly sending out mass texts to the family asking for money to pay for their phone bills, their electricity (when it got shut off aftet they hadn’t paid the bill in months), their kids soccer uniforms, cheer uniforms, etc. they’re so wasteful with their money. sometimes they’ll pay it back, but rarely the full amount.

@excitedtobeMRSF:  I think we should just send you the weirdest shit we have and then you give it to them. I have a lawn gnome with 1 leg I’m sure they are dying to have!

@nikbee:  Good idea, maybe some mismatched silverware and a used doormat would be good too.

@Day_In_The_Life:  

@SoupyCat:  

Yep. And she totally wants one of the realistic latex ones. I have no clue. I told her I wasn’t going to buy her one or cart her around in one. I offered to get her a dvd of The Little Mermaid for xmas though…

@SoupyCat:  I am glad I can entertain.  Who would have thought..a mermaid tail.

@nikbee:  I like that!  I’m moving and have lots of “stuff”.  How about a large-type solar calculator?  I’ll throw in some old cat furniture (cat fur included free!), and an old rustic style cat sculpture!
