Huh? Where am I? What happened? Ouch! The back of my head hurts...
Oh, yeah, that's right, I was reading Slim's post. Yikes! That's a lot of rock. Have things changed between Monte and Jen? I hope so, or this is going to be an expensive lesson.
Many years ago I was dating a woman who for months admired Tiffany's Elsa Peretti BEAN pendant
. Christmas was coming so I drove 80 miles to a Tiffany store and spent ~$500 on a large gold version. I was so pleased that I had finally hit the perfect gift.
Christmas came, I excitedly gave her the gift, she opened it and said, "Oh. That's nice."
What a let-down. I think she wore it once, maybe twice (at least in my presence). That was when I swore off ever again buying expensive gifts like jewelry for women.
I hope, for Monte's sake, that his experience is different. But I wouldn't want to bet my $7000 on it.
Hi cfitz, nice to see you back!
Tell us about life in the wilderness.
What's new? Dodec almost

called a Plextor a POS, scour almost
said something nice about a LiteOn drive. bhairavp
after passing Monte in post count on 1 Dec.
The forum has a print preview mode.
And Slim continues to make pithy remarks both in posts and signature (but that's not new).
Hi MediumRare! Thanks for the welcome. It is good to see you as well.
Based on those first three events, I'm wondering if I should check the temperature in the nether-regions of the Earth...
I saw the print mode and thought Dodecahedron must have been quite happy when that was added. He's been lobbying for that for a long time.
I'm glad that at least I can count on the constancy of Slim. I always enjoy his signature comments.
I am always glad to see cfitz back.
Good thing you make it back from the Wilderness alive and in good health!
Hi BuddhaTB! Long time no see. How are things at the shoe forum? I bought a new pair of athletic shoes just a couple of weeks ago. But, being the cheapskate that I am, I just got a pair of New Balance on sale at DSW. I guess I'd better not show my head in your Nike forum...
