usually my mother sends me a check for xmas, but every once in a while she sends an actual object, generally some cheap-ass crap she had lying around unsold from her flea market period (i recall a pair of silvertone plastic earrings, for example). this year, she was evidently moved to actually buy me something.

upon opening the fateful box, i was rendered speechless with horror:



the photo flatters it *considerably*. the workmanship is appalling and it's nearly a foot long.

merry xmas, everybody!

knowing my mother, she bought these things in bulk from a chinese kitsch catalog and sent one to everyone on her list. they probably cost less to buy than they did to ship.

to be fair, she *does* have cataracts.

Cataracts or no, unless they're completely occlusive, nothing excuses the tack.

I still think I want one, though. it's so horrible it's awesome.

I'll have to get a photo of the blue and gold ceramic snail that [livejournal.com profile] nedsanyour gave me for my birthday one year. It would probably amuse and horrify you at the same time.

In his defense, I'm pretty sure he knew it was appalling.

I actually kind of like it.

Not enough to take it off your hands, dear god no.

Back when [livejournal.com profile] canetoad, Grendel and I were sharing an apartment I would have offered you a substantial sum for this. We could have placed it under the equally hideous frog painting.

Proving that everyone's tastes are different (there's a reason Baskin Robbins has 31 flavors, lol)... how much do you want for it?
