Before I start I need to explain myself... You may think I am spoiled, selfish, and forgetting the whole point of Christmas... BUT its not true... I actually really really appreciate all my gifts. I take care of them and really am thankful for everything I get. BUT I know people are going to buy me gifts... That's a given... Christmas is a BIG DEAL to my family. My Dad goes crazy buying us gifts... There was one year ... Probably when I was in 6Th grade... You know that age. You are very particular about what you wear and what you want. Well under the tree was my parents "guess" to what I wanted... I wasn't upset because it was partially my fault... I didn't give them specifics... So that was the year THE LIST was born! Next Christmas I searched through all the magazines cutting out what I really wanted. I had pictures, price, size,and where to find it. Little did I know it was my parents dream! They would go into the store and show the people working there my VERY DETAILED list and they would show them exactly where it was. So ever since then I have been making a list (so has my younger brother.. he ain't no ffoooolll!) Some of my friends think its so horrible I do this... While others are pissed they didn't do it. Juan said his parents would be SO offended if he handed them a list... The point of the list is this... I don't want a cream sweater! I don't want ugly shit! I don't expect everything on my list... Its more of a "suggestion guide" Wouldn't you like to know the gift you bought is something the person really wanted and that they will actually use and not RE-GIFT? YES of course! HAHAH I am totally making myself look bad... I only speak the truth! There are people in my family who always buy me cool stuff and they don't need THE LIST.
Juan was really trying to ruin my life! He didn't follow the list... He's a stubborn ass and refused to follow my "suggestion list". Which would be okay normally.... but then he told me he refused to buy me jewelry... WTF!!! I think jewelry is a boyfriend gift. Granted for my birthday he bought me a Japanese craft book, a Q-snaps, scissors and some other stuff he didn't know even existed ... Seriously though... NO JEWELRY? I didn't really care too much but come on... You can't go wrong with Jewelry! I don't know if his jewelry strike was all an act or if he had a change of heart... He bought me this BEAUTIFUL diamond bracelet!!!!! Which I was shocked HE PICKED OUT... He kept on telling me " AND ITS NOT ON YOUR LIST..." as if he was trying to challenge the power of the list... So I guess... People Know me better then I thought. It actually meant more to me that he bought me something that he thought I would like rather than follow the list. I am glad to know that my boyfriend isn't completely hopeless when it comes to shopping! HAHAHA... Oh and just so you know.. I don't sent the list to my whole family.. I am not that HORRIBLE!! That would just be TACKY! I only give it to the parents! Speaking of my parents... My mom has a list... and pretty much all she wants is this: Ped Egg, Pajama pants, slippers, watch, Disneyland pass, Beach Perfume. She thinks my dad bought her a lap top and she's pissed... She said " If I don't get slippers I am going to be so mad!!! Can't I just get a pair of slippers! " HAHAHAHA She is so weird!!!
So the moral of this story is: Maybe I am wrong to make a list, but honestly I wish everyone made a list... It makes shopping so much easier!!!
P.S. The reason I got this bracelet today is Juan is going home for Christmas and I am dropping him off at the air port! :( Its okay though! I am flying out to DC for New Years to meet him!!!
