What you did today

Recommended Posts

Looks like it will be a white Christmas this year. I just heard the weather for West Tenn. light rain and falling temps for today and tomorrow and snow flurries on Friday. Since a certain good looking blonde nurse will be spending Christmas with me this year I had to by one more christmas present. So I went to Tiffanys website and made a last minute buy and had it sent overnight. It got here today. And no it is not an engagement ring. Been there, done that.

 

So, here is the dilemma. I don't know where things are going with this girl. We dated for a few months after the accident and she really helped me with a lot of the BS I was going through back then. But, we also had some fundamental personality conflicts. We just sort of got back together a week ago. I wanted to get her something nice but not too suggestive so I settled on this: http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?...n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+

 

Is this ok? Does it send the wrong message? It seems pretty neutral to me but I gurantee she will have experts in male psychology from all over the world analyzing what I meant by it. The irony is it meant nothing.

woah man, that's a bit fancy

 

you just slept with her, it's not like you're going out with her again - right?

She was not just a one nighter because we have history. Plus after talking the past few days we're going to give it another try but take it slow. Was that too much? I can still hit a mall somwhere tomorrow and just hold on to that. Jeez, it would have been a hell of a lot less complicated had I just not taken her to lunch!

Gag gifts can be fun, Red lady, but just on the safe side you should also get him a real one as well.

Oh I will...not doing so wouldn't be funny, that'd just be mean. :)

He mentioned the Makita...guess I can look at them. To me they're all just...y'know...tools. :p

I'm as far removed from a romance/gift expert as you can get, but to me that seems a bit much for the situation. Especially if it comes in a Tiffany box. :(

Design wise, it's fine...but price wise it seems a bit high. Not that you'd tell her the price, I assume, but if she knows the store it came from she could find out. I dunno...it'd probably make me a little uncomfy because of that.

 

Then again, like I said, I'm not a gift expert. Maybe that's normal these days. :)

just seems a bit full on considering you're only gonna be taking it slow

why not just woo her with a nice candle lit dinner with a beautiful boxed wine and then hot sex.

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

Hmm, that is pretty fancy. The item and design itself aren't too serious, but going through Tiffany's is big time in my eyes. I mean if you'd bought it at Macy's for a hundred bucks it'd be no big deal, but Tiffany's is pretty high end.

 

Just my initial impression, otherwise it is a very nice gift, You could probably phrase it to be more of a friendship gift, like saying thanks for helping you through a rough time in your life.

Crappy day... Viva dest... Oh well, 48 hour Mass Effect marathon= initiating forthwith...

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

Not sure how helpful my perspective would be given the age gap GD, but on the back of Hurlshot I'd say it does seem a bit too fancy. If you think she might be the sort to get the wrong message (i.e. 80% of all women), maybe hold on to it.

keep in mind, hurlshot is probably on some very serious drugs right now. :ermm:

 

it does seem like more than just a "thank you," however.

Ugh. What a ****ty shift at work. Usually, on a good day, we do about 130-150K in sales. Today we did nearly a quarter of a million. At least I was never bored.

 

edit:Happy Festivus!!

My mum gave us a bit o' money...a kind of early, partial inheritance I guess...which on the one hand is cool, but on the other hand is kinda melancholy because it came from one of my dad's IRA's that he'd created for us kids...one he'd made very early when he first was diagnosed with MS and worried about his young kids futures if he died early. Luckily, he didn't...so in the end, the happy and the sad...it all balanced out.

 

Life definitely has a balance to it. And it's all so interesting.

 

Happy Holidays, everyone.

Great day so far, have not done anything, watched my son open presents this morning "This is just what I wanted" for every gift. Drinking my first beer in months, my wife loves the Bud Light Lime so I am stuck drinking that oh well still tastes good with lots of lime and salt. Watching the Chargers take apart the titans, also cooking a Honey Baked Ham that has taken 3 hours, gonna serve it with stuffing, Au Gratin potatoes, salad, and cranberries. Just love to cook. Mmmmmmmmmm

 

Merry Christmas to all.
