On Neutral Sounding Noises to Make When You Are Three Seconds Behind Figuring Out What's Happening While Watching the World Cup

I really loved this. Echoing @Lucienne, I would love it if The Hairpin featured more interviews!
I read the last paragraph while I was scrolling through hairpin.com and TOTALLY thought it was in reference to Ted's "eating sandwiches" bit on How I Met Your Mother.
On the topic of thank-you notes, maybe Ms. Fancy or other 'Pinners can weigh in: I'm confused about what to do in terms of gifting a close cousin. I was in her wedding several years ago, and gave a gift a few months after the wedding (I just graduated college, was poor, was in her *very* pricey wedding party that involved lots of travel), yet never received a thank you note/text/email/acknowledgement. I've also sent gifts and cards for subsequent birthdays (I live far away) and Christmas, and rarely receive a thank you. I'm thinking of resorting to only giving her new baby gifts instead, because Xmas/her bday is anxiety-inducing. Too Scrooge-esque? :(
