Blogging games

In spite of the fact that I've been writing this blog for a year and a half, I'm relatively new to the blogosphere. One of the things I've learned recently is that bloggers play games where they issue a challenge to other bloggers and then everyone has a fun time writing about something new and interesting and tagging their friends. (Some of you already know this of course, but some of you don't so I thought I'd explain.)

So, today I got my first official, by name, tag. Wahoo! So, I'm playing. :)

1. What was the best gift your received ever?
Swimming lessons. Andy got 'em for me the Christmas before we got married so I wouldn't feel freaked out the whole time we were honeymooning in HI.

2. What was the worst?
There have been some things I didn't particularly like, but those were universally given with love so they never counted as bad. I'm sure I've been given some rotten gifts in a passive-aggressive sort of way, but I can't remember what they were.

3. What's the best gift you've given someone else?
That would be Andy's birthday present in 2004. Really, we worked on that one together though, and she's currently sitting on the rug playing with Tinker Toys with him...
4. What's the worst?
One year, I wanted to knit an absolutely gorgeous wool sweater for Andy for Christmas. Unfortunately, I was new to knitting and didn't get the gauge right so it ended up being big enough for a giant. (We finally gave it to a friend.)

5. What did you get this holiday season?
An iPod Nano, a watch with a planisphere, tickets to a Cake concert AND a night away from home while Grandma and Grandpa take care of the kiddo.

6. Where did it fit on the best to worst scale (best being 1 and worst being a 10)?
I'm thinking about a 9.

And now, the fun part! I tag Peter & Roni, hoverfrog, and James.

I like your "best gift you've given" choice. ;) That's sweet.
And, thank you for your note about flowers...it makes me feel less horrible.
