Shortcake Roll Call 4

I do this once a year and the results are always hit or miss, but it’s time for the annual Shortcake Roll Call.

If history and my stats are any indication, then officially 1% of my daily readers will answer my roll call, which is silly. But I’m having a super depressing day, so I’ll take what I can get.

SO – do you read Shortcake? Leave a comment! Don’t want to admit it? No problem – use a fake name! And to make this topical, tell me about the best Christmas present you ever got.

No picture because I’m super fat and sad and poofy-eyed today. You’re welcome.

    um… i’d have to say it was the microscope kit i got from my parents when i was a kid. i think i was 7 or 8. i messed around with that thing for a few years. it wasn’t one of those presents that’s really cool for awhile until you forget about it and never touch it again.

    I read your blog! Why? Because it makes me happy! And I want a trip to Paris for Xmas.

    A day late, but still here!

    Yeah, I get about a 1/10 the readers you do and 1/100 the comments. Damn this passive internet!

    Hands down the best gift ever was the Stars Wars At-At when I was 6. It was as big as me! I loved it so much I actually demanded that it be allowed to sleep next to me in bed.

  6. YEAH! I used the AT-AT as my pet dog whenever I played house. That thing was dope.

    One year my brother got a Gamorrean Guard and I inexplicably loved it so much that they had to give me one for my birthday.

    I usually catch up on shortcake every couple days, which is why I am late! Love + years of usage made my Nikon FM10, which my parents got me my first year of college, the best gift ever. I’m sure there were a multitude of gifts I got more excited about at the time, though…like the original Nintendo! Man!

    I didn’t see this until a day late. Sorry for causing the frowny faced guy with the cupcake. But hey, snazzy wallpaper he’s got there!

  9. Aw Miss Erin, I knew you would show up eventually. I just… 600 people read it and 6 answered and it gave me the sads. That’s not why I was crying at the grocery store though even though IT SHOULD BE

    What, oh. Here! Excellent blog, little lady. Even when you’re sad you still have a way of making others feel good or appreciate the little things in life a little bit more. My favorite Christmas present might have been a Grow-a-Frog. I’m going with that for now. Also, I watched an episode of Dollhouse and before I knew it I’d watched three!

  11. I read you!! I was just so busy I fell behind in my google reader so I’m days late! Anyways, I love your energy, your cute dogs, the way you write, the fact that you struggle with real things like insomnia or loneliness or family turmoil. I think you have a great personality and I always look forward to reading your posts.

    Hope I don’t sound like a crazy stalker, I’m not I promise.

  12. Oh it’s my Twitter friend! Hi!!!

  13. Allison

    I don’t read regularly, but when I do stop by, I very much enjoy my time here. Thank you for writing!

    Hmm…hard question. I can only say that this year my favorite present was from my little sister. It was a bar of chocolate and a thank you card for helping her with her algebra homework. It’s the little things, you know? 🙂

    Oh, and congrats on the 600 readers! How splendid 🙂 🙂 🙂
