Giftcards are teh 2 g00d.

Anyway, in my 23 and change years alive, I have learned a few things. One of them is you really cannot get a gift for a woman that she'll completely like. It's impossible. Even if you do everything right: Size, color, whatever, it's no guarantee. Hell, the damned thing could cost roughly the same amount as the GNP of Albania and you're still not even close to having a sure thing that she'll like it.

That's the one reason I like gift cards. You can get one, and just say "Honey, (baby, sweety, whatever. :P) I got you a gift card because if I got you [insert gift here], I *KNOW* I would've somehow, someway gotten it wrong. And that look of dissapointment on your face would've torn me up on the inside. This way, you can get whatever you want, because you know what is perfect for you... And I want nothing more that to see you happy." And that's it.

And if you don't get any after that, something's fucking wrong. :P

The 24 hours of "The Christmas Story"

Starts Christmas Eve. And I really do like TCS because it's fun movie. But one question has come to my mind...

Has TCS become what the "It's a Wonderful Life" was before it was bought up by whoever an now is a one time a year thing? I mean, along with the 24 hour thing on TNT, I've seen it on some of the local stations too.

But with Wonderful Life on only once a year now, I can only do stuff like this:

>Nick: Out you two pixies go, through the door or out the window!
>George: Now wait a second Nick...

Me: <George> We like to be called fairies or queens! Get it right.

Yes, I riff Wonderful Life. Yes, I am evil. :P
