TWQ: Unwanted Presents

With Christmas almost here, TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks about those presents you dread arriving. This was borrowed from Mrs Mogul


Which presents would you NOT want to have? List as many as you wish. Add funny ones, actual ones, presents you had in the past or fantasy examples.

My answers are:

1: A Christmas card from Victoria and David Beckham

2: An 'Introduction To Scientology' course hosted by Tom Cruise.

3: A cup with 'Happy Xmas' on it.

4: A Ricky Gervais or Catherine Tate DVD

Now it's over to you....

(Are you getting a theme here??? lol)

Michele sent me here this early morning in L.A., CA, USA!

One year I received a grey plastic battery operated star shaped thing that bleeped and flashed. It was not my favourite and I could not really see the point.

In a similar vein I received that bucking camel game which is brilliant and still scares passing children and adults alike.

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays / Quch QI'lop HoD rashbre

I like your answers, Jean-Luc - and Naomi's too! Michele sent me to answer your question. I don't want the lousy bath products that some people buy at cheap stores, with which you end up smelling like a skunk. That's all I can think of at the moment (I just woke up!).

I don't mind getting clothing, but no one bothers to asks me what my size is... so, invariably, I get clothes that don't fit. Then I have to go and exchange them. Other than that, I have never gotten any "Oh, no" gifts.

No_Newz said...

A steaming yuletide log on my pillow from my puppies... oh wait, that already arrived. :P

Merry Christmas!

Mr Farty said...

Socks. Please FSM, no more socks!

Or Star Wars I - the one with Jam-Jar Binks.

Square1 said...

No more pets.

Michele sent me.

dragonflyfilly said...

I DEFINITELY would not want 1 or 2 either, not sure about 3 and 4 (not sure what 4 is)...anyhoo...

oh, what i would not like are any more ornaments/pictures/soaps or anything else that bears a resemblance to a DRAGONFLY...thanks everyone, but enuf already!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, mon Kapitano, see you in the new year,
cheers for now,
pj

Hey There Jean-Luc...Michele sent me back, and having had time to think---I do not want another round object with a lid, and with a whole in it and flowers all over it that I have NO idea what it is....! Last year, I got that....LOL!

Socks. There was a point somewhere where my family decided that I was too old for toys and started getting my clothes. My sister was more of the yuppie type, so her choices of clothes were not anything like my choices.

What's wrong with a Ricky Gervais or Catherine Tate DVD?

Random Magus said...

An invitation to 'do' some course or be more pro active.
A how to book I don't need another hobby that I will leave halfway through.
A guilt trip

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I'm with you on your number 2.

Here are mine.

1. A invite to any of Rudy Guliani's fund raisers.

2. Any cookbook by Rachael Ray.

3. Any DVD that's an action movie.

4. Gift cards for oil changes.

Titania Starlight said...

This is a great idea, Jean-Luc!

*Fruitcake/doorstop

*Body lotion! I have tons already. Quit giving it to me since most either give me the hives or a migraine.

*The flu and a broken hand for which I have now received! ARG!!!

* Cat bark outside my bedroom door. My bulimic cat strategically knows where and when to place his barf. Nothing like stepping into cold cat yuck first thing in the morning.

* I am with Mistress of the Dark. No Rachael Ray cookbooks.


This was fun. May you get all that you want this Christmas! You are a great friend.

Linda said...

Anything that is heavily perfumed as I just can't stand overpowering smells. Beyond that, I think my mind is just too frazzled to think at the moment but I did want to make sure I came by to check out TWQ!

Bernard said...

Merry Christmas, Capt!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I wish I could make sure you got all of those. I would love to see the expression on your faces.

Jon, as it is, I can't stand Gervais or Tate, although I know they are popular.

The Hulk in lingere (Shudders)


Socks,

Tony Stark Saying h's my fahter "YAAA!"

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

Christmas ornaments that are broken when you open them....nobodies fault really.

Michele sent me.

Another present I received this year which was unfortunate was sent to me from abroad. It was a really well intentioned present from a Scandinavian Farm Shop.

Unfortunately it arrived whilst I was out and was returned to the DHL depot. Two days later I picked it up, on my way to buy the tree. I'd left the unopened 90 cm square box in my car and when I returned I noticed an interesting aroma. As I was fighting the tree, which I somehow needed to also fit in, I left it until I drove home.

Sure enough, at home I opened the box. The aroma was now 'fresher' than previously. Unfortunately the inventive Swedish pickled mackerel and the jar of garlic seasoned herrings had exploded across the moose sausage and mixed with the polystyrene packing chips. If I said 'exuberant nappy' I think it would convey part of the effect.

Probably not such a great idea for next year. Here, this time, from Michele's and once again, seasonal greetings!

Spacerguy said...

Silk bed sheets.I had to draw the line somewhere.
Cherry liqueur chocolates.
Uncomfortable Handcuffs. Aww babe. I said "could'nt ya have got me the furry ones?" lol.

gautami tripathy said...

I only want books and music. Everything else IS unwanted.

Michele sent me here your way!

Do drink tea. It has antioxidants and any day better than coffee.

dddragon said...

1. ugly "mother-in-law" type clothing (from the in-laws, no less!)

2. culinary-related items from people who KNOW that I don't cook or bake.

3. cheap bath or decorative or candle items.

4. towel sets that don't match anything in the house.

Fab said...

I actually received from my brother (thank you soo much) a ceramic cookie jar shaped like a monkey (a chimp to be specific) and painted in a multicolor cubist way. It's an abomination to ceramic things everywhere! No cookies of mine will ever pass it's lit!

gautami tripathy said...

In books, I think I can pass that erotic literature.And Technical ones!

Michele sent me back.

M. C. Pearson said...

When I was sixteen, my parents got me bike parts for Christmas. Can you believe it? I wanted a car! And I didn't even get a new bike...just parts for my old one. How awful is it to open up a present and have bike tubes stare at you? Sheesh. So, my NON-wish would be bike parts...even car parts would be icky...unless it came attached to a porche.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I hope you all get what you DO want this Christmas!
