It’s Fun to Stay at the YMCA-Gift Exchange Reveal

December can be such a fun month. I’ve enjoyed all the different blogger movements, and the Frugal  Portland Gift Exchange did not disappoint. Thanks to the lovely Kathleen for putting this together. I drew the name of Catherine from Plunged in Debt. For her gift, she received a wine bottle candelabra and wine glass markers with a corkscrew. I thought this was a wonderful gift for her, except after I mailed it, I second guessed my memory. I thought I had read that she was a red wine enthusiast, but maybe I got that mixed up with someone else. If it turns out she doesn’t drink, won’t I feel silly? However, she will have some great items to re-gift.

When my gift arrived, I really had sort of forgotten and thought it was one of the neighbor’s packages dropped off by mistake. They keep UPS in business, so we get strays delivered to hour house on occasion. This box had my name on it, though, so I ripped it open to find………

This headdress, very similar to the one I wore when I made a fool of myself sang YMCA as one of the village people while under hypnosis. I have no idea who it’s from, but thank you for reading my blog and finding out some things about me. Although that was not one of my finer moments, it is a great memory, and now I can recreate it whenever I want, as soon as I can wrestle it from my daughter. Maybe I can recruit a few of her friends and we can be a modern day Partridge Family!

Note: This headdress is strictly meant as a Village People costume and in no way makes light of any Native American traditions. So don’t go getting offended!

  2. Awesome gift! Mine’s presumably also caught at the border in the Christmas deluge. I also want to know who sent yours!

  3. OMG I love it! How fun and funny that is! I’ll let you know soon who gave you that, unless that person wants to reveal themselves.

    1. Waiting with baited breath for your post.
