The more you spend, the more you save.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Go and read this from Praying to Darwin.

Yes, and only an unthinking testosterone led guy would listen.
However, as one of my gay friends noted recently. Those straight guys are something else. Did their girlfriend/wife/whatever just say yesterday what they wanted for a present? We highly doubt that so why are they paying the big bucks to ship things last minute?

I love it!! I well remember the time that one of my best friends showed off her engagement ring to me, to the tune of $20,000 (no joke). I went home, pulled Rick aside, and told him that if he EVER spent that much money to buy me a rock, I'd kill him dead. Of course, it never would have occurred to him to do that anyway, which is why I was already married to him :)


I cannot imagine spending a down payment on a house for a piece of jewelry, now matter how sparkly.
