I have the best mom ever
I shouldn't get my hopes up too much, since I haven't actually gotten an Xmas or B-day present from my mom in like 2-3 years. Last year she said she was getting me a fish eye lense camera and a set of salt and pepper shakers I found from a cool design store, but I don't think she bothered and I haven't brought it up. (Mind you I buy her B-day and Mother's day presents... >: / )
This year I'm going to see her for my sister's holiday party after Thanksgiving, and she asked me what I wanted. Knowing full well I wasn't getting shit, I said $100. Which I figured is a lot for her since she's kinda living outside her means in her fucking crazy expensive Manhattan apartment. But then... I saw the muppets...
I emailed her a link and said "I want this" and she said I can't change my mind now cause I own a muppet.
