    :chuckle this is toooooo funny to me cuz little sis's low life boyfriend did that for her last valentines day (instead of taking her to dinner and getting flowers) then he went out with the boys.

    btw, now they are engaged she really knows how to pick 'em

    bwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!:roll

    personally, i think one of the worst gifts of all time is a diet book for anyone who has not asked for it. (my mother was famous for that.......) and right behind good ol' atkins for life are chia pets, cheap spray cologne, and the clapper!:chuckle

    my hubby is a great gift buyer.
    I love electronics and gadgets so he has it easy I guess.
    I would flip over a plasma big screen and some floor shaking surround sound.

    I love allllllll jewelry and have eccletic taste so he is good there too.

    About the only one I really thought was dead on was signing the card in front of me! That just reeks of "I didn't think ahead....":spin:

    [font=courier new]i wonder if he listens to am talk radio...they seem to advertise the star naming stuff a lot.

    [font=courier new]i've always thought...you know, you could just get an official looking document and a star map and ~viola~ instant present! kinda like george costanza on seinfeld...giving everone a card that said "a donation to the human fund (a made up bogus organization) has been made in your name".....:chuckle

    no he is not that concerned with mundane things like the news and other trivial public matters probably listens to the howard stern show when there's a well know porn star being interviewed.:chuckle

    i agree that the star registry is probably bogus and if not, could be easily duplicated. very cheesey.

    sports items.....hey I would love for my DH to buy me a jersey of my favorite football team....i would wear it to bed....i guess I am wierd or something....

    I read this on msn. One does not wish to appear ungrateful, but the list made a fair amount of sense. Except that I happen to love getting small appliances for presents. Every gadget in my kitchen, other than the bare basics, has come to me by way of birthday or Christmas gifts. Of course, I am in no danger of getting unsuitable gifts, since I do all the shopping and wrapping. I just decide who bought me which gift, slap a tag on them, and put them under the tree with everyone else's presents. An all together agreeable system, IMHO.

    Oh wow, I am totally the opposite. I DO like to recieve things I need. Sometimes, I want something I don't need.

    I agree. If someone else doesn't get it for me, then I end up having to get it for myself anyway.....so why buy me a bunch of junk you think that I will like, when you can buy me something practical that I will use every day...like perhaps an electric canopener!!!!!! I need one of those sooooo bad...my pitiful handheld is about to fall apart and won't cut through butter anymore.

    and I have enough bath stuff to make me puke. I have oily skin and I can't use that stuff at all, but it never fails.....hubby finds the biggest bag of smelly good bath oils and crystals, and scrubs, and bubble bath that he can get his hands on...at least he tries. You think he'd get the hint since he has nowhere to put his stuff due to all the unopened bath products under the sink. haha
