Thirteen Things That Make Me Tune Out

Talk of children that are not my nephews
Talk of bodily functions
Stories that I have heard over and over and over
Bitching about the same stuff and the same people
Talk of elderly parents/grandparents
Your drinking days
How you did this and that and how important you think you are
Sci-fi talk
Any sort of programming/networking crap
Things I simply don’t understand
Any sort of meeting

13 Memorable Materialistic Gifts

  1. Barbie Dream house – my dad spent all day putting it together. I cried.
  2. Poison by Ed McBain – The book that got me started on Ed. My mom gave it to me one day when I was home sick. I couldn’t put it down.
  3. IBM Computer – I came home and found it in boxes and couldn’t wait to set it up.
  4. Joan Jett Tape – my sister bought it for me for Christmas and it had an orange scratch and sniff sticker on the wrapping paper.
  5. First camera – I got it for Christmas the year we watched Miracle on 34th Street and could open one present per commercial.
  6. Oliver – my first dog that quickly became Mom and Dad’s dog. What a cutie.
  7. First CD player – I got it for my birthday and the first CD I bought was the Singles soundtrack.
  8. Cabbage Patch Kids – my first one was backordered and it just happened to come in on my birthday. My second was the camera Christmas.
  9. Handmade Sister Quilt – the first handmade full size (twin size) quilt my sister made by all by hand. It was for graduation.
  10. Mommy Quilt – my second one. My mom made my sister’s first and mine came along eventually. I have both and cannot be without one at night.
  11. First tea set – I remember opening in on Christmas morning…we open everything on Christmas Eve…but Mom put some out on Christmas morning.
  12. The Tempo – my first car. My parents went to buy a new tv and came home with a new car for Mom, so I got the first blue penguin.
  13. Blue Lava Lamp – I remember that the tag said “To Heather From Dad”, not Mom & Dad, just Dad.
