This here's a recipe for unpleasantness.

Spike's Bitches 46: Don't I get a cookie?  

[NAFDA] Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

Epic, I'm so sorry.

Hil, that is insanity. Good luck figuring out what to do.

a weaponized silver fleur de lis stopper for wine! It's pretty, functional and can hurt people

Now ... if you could only set it on fire ....

Her: And here's one of the best podcast readers I've ever heard. She's called "FayJay" and she's reading these Sherlock fics.

Cool! You need to share that with her.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Epic, I'm so sorry about Domino.

Ann, that's a ferret.

All sympathies, Epic.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

if he was trying to get a gift that effectively communicated a lack of commitment

I know you have different expectations of the relationship than he does, and I know I'm a commitment phobe to put them all to shame, but I don't get this. It's a birthday gift for the first birthday you've had together. Is there an expectation of a commitment gift at this point? And other than rings, what does that look like? I mean, what he got sounds really nice, and I don't get what's missing.

All that and Lynda Carter too. - WindSparrow

I didn't expect a gift at all. I certainly didn't expect jewelry or sexy underwear or a romantic getaway. It's just not what I would ever get someone I was dating, and I was trying to understand what led him to choose it. And now I think I get it. He's logical and methodical and likes to make decisions based on orderly thought processes. I'm pretty sure he thought "She likes wine, she likes silver, she likes New Orleans - awesome!"

Me, I'd dither and wander around the store, and go visit another store, and ask a friend their opinion, and analyze what message I might be sending, wanting to strike the right balance between thoughtful and not too much. A book, or some music, or a show I think he'd like, or a snap button shirt...

It's getting to be time for a new thread. If you have any suggestions, hie thee to Bureaucracy.
