The kids are shocked to find out that Alex Aruda was the so-called "Dictionary Thief" all this time, and that he borrowed it to look up words he didn't know.

The kids make Scotty Lamb put the book back on the teacher's desk as Alex wasn't dumb enough to do it himself. However, Ms. Jordan walked right at that moment, thinking that Scotty stole it.

Ann told Greg that if he wants a new weight set then he's gonna have to stick with a routine then Frank said that maybe he could get one for Christmas.

He went to the fridge and emptied out the milk and orange and put sand in then attached a broom with it and had make a pretty decent barbell. Greg then made a bench press out of an iron board and some boxes. And then Rowley arrived. He was the first one to use the bench press he did about five reps and wanted to quit. While he was doing his reps, Greg got a phoney nose and mustache out of Rodrick's junk draw. Rowley totally lost his concentration and couldn't lift the barbell off his chest so Greg had to bail Rowley out.

Thursday, December 23rd[]

When Greg got to the bus stop, he saw Rowley holding a Christmas present and remembered it was Secret Santa Day. Luckily, Ann pulled up and gave him a gift for Bryon Brown wrapped. Unfortunately, Ann didn't get the whole "Secret Part" of "Secret Santa" as she wrote Greg's name down causing the whole class to laugh and make fun of him. The Heffleys then went to the store to buy a gift for The Giving Tree Guy and Frank picked up ans extra-large wool sweater.

Friday, December 24th (Christmas Eve)[]

Greg talks about how Rodrick once said that he doesn't believe in Santa and how he pretends he is still onboard with the concept so he still gets a normal amount of presents unlike Rodrick.

Saturday, December 25th (Christmas)[]


When Greg got out of bed and dug through his stocking, he was expecting a ton of comic books, candy, toys and more but all he got was a stick of deodorant and a travel dictionary. Greg then started to dig threw the packages to look for the ones with his name on but every single present that said "From Santa" said To Manny on the end. Greg started to give out his gifts to his family. When he gave his gift to Rodrick he gave him the "Best of Little Cutie" unwrapped which was double insult as Rodrick knows how much Greg hates Little Cutie. Greg went behind the couch and opened his gifts just about every one was clothes however Manny got it made. He got everything he circled in that Sears Catalog, no lie. Ann called Greg and Manny over and sure enough, Mary-Lou's present was matching Christmas sweaters. When Uncle Joe and his kids arrived, Ann made Greg put on a maroon and Ruby shirt and he realized that those were the colors of the school uniform at Bishop Garrison. Greg states that he thought he put an end to this a couple of weeks ago when he deleted that message from the admissions apartment. Greg was watching Manny playing with his toys feeling sorry for himself when Ann gave him her present. He ripped up the packaging hoping it was Twisted Wizard Black but it turns out Ann misplaced the gifts at church so it was The Giving Tree Guy's wool sweater. Greg went to Rowley's and gave him the gift Rodrick got him and since his Parents got him the Twisted Wizard game, Greg played it for a while.

Sunday, December 26th[]

Ann went out and brought a new copy of Twisted Wizard Black but before Greg could start playing the game Ann told him he had to write his thank-you notes first. After two or three, Greg realized he was practically writing the same thing again and again so he wrote up a general form on the computer with blanks for the things that he needed to change. The template worked well for the first few gifts but after that not so much. Greg was smart enough to seal up the cards before handing it off to Ann and he got his game just like she promised.

Monday, December 27th[]

Rodrick got a model rocket for Christmas and he and Frank had been working together on putting the rocket together. They finished it today and were going out to launch it. Frank knocked on Greg's door and offered him to go with them and Greg figured it was better than nothing. They went to the park where Frank and Rodrick set the rocket on the launch pad. After they finished, Rodrick offered Greg to launch the rocket. When Greg did it, it went 300 feet in the air. Real quickly the parachute deployed and the wind blew the rocket over a hill. They all chased after the rocket but they lost sight of it shortly after. They all split up to look for it and after about an hour, Greg found it stuck in a tree in perfect condition and he got it down and ran to Rodrick and Frank, excited to be the hero for the day, but then he tripped and fell on it. Since Rodrick and Frank didn't see Greg that happened, Greg lies that he found it in this shape.

Tuesday, December 28th[]

Over the past few days, Greg couldn't stop thinking about what Albert Sandy said before Christmas break. He claimed that he knew a guy who's cousin figured out a way you could jump your own height in five days. The basic idea is that on the first day you dig a hole and then jump in it ten times and the next day you double the size of the hole and if you keep doing that your practically a kangaroo. Everyone told Albert he was full of baloney but Greg thought his plan made a lot of sense so he called Rowley up to be his training partner. Once Rowley got to Greg's house, Ann spotted them holding a shovel. To make a long story, they had to go to Rowley's house to stay digging. They found a good spot in the front yard and started digging but they couldn't even make a dent. After a while, Greg and Rowley went inside for a break which turned into a three hour Twisted Wizard session.

Wednesday, December 29th[]

Greg decided to give up on the hole idea and instead use it to bury a time capsule. Rowley liked the idea so he put in his comic books, action figures, and video games and then told Greg that it was not fair as everything in the box was only the stuff he got for Christmas so Greg manipulates him by saying he was the one who came up with the idea and that he was throwing 100 Mom Bucks in exaggerating the value of it. Greg thought putting in Mom Bucks was a great idea as somebody in the future who finds the box would think that Mom Bucks is the old currency so he will travel back in time to award Greg. Rowley suggested they should work in half-hour shifts but Greg says that he did all the work yesterday so the shovel was all Rowley's. Rowley didn't do much progress though so Greg just put the box in the hole and covered it up.

Thursday, December 30th[]

Since New Years' is tomorrow, Greg guesses he should start thinking about his New Years' resolutions. Greg mentions last year that Ann came up with Greg and Rodrick's resolution because they were fighting all the time and she wanted to put a stop to it so she made them watch a corny movie. After the movie, she asked Greg and Rodrick if that gave him any ideas. Rodrick told Greg that they should start serving each other breakfast like the kids in the movie were. Greg and Rodrick agreed that they should have a contest to see who could serve breakfast each other for the most amount of days. Greg went first and he lasted for 23 days so now it was Rodrick's turn to serve breakfast but he gave up on the first day.

Friday, December 31st[]

Greg claims that he is writing this under the covers. He got sent to bed an hour ago and it was all because he was trying to have fun with Manny. Earlier on, he and Manny were horsing around in the basement, Greg found a little ball of thread and told him it was a spider. He pinned him down and held it over him like he was gonna make him eat it. When, Greg was about to let him free, Manny slapped his hand, which made him drop the ball of thread and swallowed it. Manny immediately started crying and shrieking to Ann.


He blabbed that Greg made him eat a spider and Greg explained that it wasn't a spider just a tiny ball of thread. Ann brought Manny over to the kitchen table and put a seed, raisin and grape on the plate and told him which was the closest size to the thread. Manny went down the kitchen chair and pulled out an orange in the refrigerator. Yesterday, Greg went out to buy the Gamers' Guide to Twisted Wizard Black but he was just one buck short so he dug up the time capsule and cashed out the Mom Bucks. Greg said he probably should have left Rowley's stuff in there but if he did he wouldn't have anything to do for the rest of New Year's Eve.
