    Ah... the spirit of Christmas!

    You aren't kidding. I've failed at perfume ("old lady scent"), clothing (not "trendy" enough), jewlery (not "gold" enough), gems (not "big" enough), lingerie (suited more to my fantasy than her taste), and money (what's the point... I work to earn it and she spends whatever she spends whter I like it or not). We just gave up as a way of saving our marriage.

    I always ask for a Visa gift card, a Paypal or Ebay gift card. That way what can't be spent at Freestyle can be spent on Ebay. That way I always get the right stuff without the fuss. I'ts worked for the last two years so far. And the great part about it, No more useless tie's (woohoo).

    @ both J's actually I know where I could get all of it for $100 roughly 25 miles up the road. Right now is not the best time for getting it though. Sirius redhead from hell is her favorite term of endearment I actually have to something REAL stupid for the temper to flare. Kind of like kicking a sleeping tiger you know it's not a smart decision before you do it. Any way freestyle was down earlier so I was notified please order it yourself since you know exactly what you want.

    Not to her face, I hope.

    I'm married to my second redhead, the first was half Sioux indian and meaner'n a wolverine (she tried to kill me a couple of times, almost succeeded once) dated a couple of others. This one is a keeper, she is always trying to find me photo gear, she likes to keep me happy, I do my damndest to reciprocate.

    No matter how many times I provide a list as demanded Nothing on it ever gets given to me. Mine is Blond but there has to a red hair gene in there. Holy crap!!! does she have a temper.

    Next time, Mark, try an AfAm goddess... she'll kick the crap out of you, and that's when she's agreeing.

    When I want to tick my wife off, I call her a blond with a bad attitude. FYI, red hair is a variation of blond, not brunette.

    Hoooo yeah! I remember...well never mind. Life with her was not dull. She'd go ghetto on my ass. Later I might find out what I did.

    The NatAm chick, she was sweet, but had the whole family "keep to your own" thing pushing on her.

    Mi amorcita, the MexAm beauty I spent many years with, we got along great almost all the time. When she'd had enough of whatever it was, she'd go barrio on my ass. I almost never found out what I did. I think being myself was enough.

    The blonde was, well, blonde. Her own wavelength, that's all I can say.

    No redhead. I had one for a boss, and that was more than enough.
