    Sorry to be a buzz-kill but giving that as a gift for a "lady-friend" would just plain be creepy.

    If it's just a gift to "be nice" why not a gift card to a store she likes. Quick, can be the exact amount you want to give, and then she can get something she actually wants.

    It's not exactly romantic, but unless I'm mistaken, romantic isn't the point right now.

    Tell her you wanted her to have something nice, something she would enjoy, but you don't know here well enough yet to pick something out. Then tell her you can meet her for dinner or drinks after she gets something to see what she got. wink wink, nod nod.

    I can't believe that thread from last year went 17 pages. I don't think I gave an update on that but I found out on Christmas Eve 2006 that the reason she got divorced was because she had decided to be a lesbian and was hooking up with a former college roommate. No kidding.

    Perhaps less energy on gifts and more energy on actually getting to know the other person is in order?

    Nah....go with the case of MGD and a coupon for full-on rumpy-bumpy.

    Oh yes you did. Still my favorite thread ever.

    Yeah, I'm thinking the inscribed cross missed the mark by a wide berth.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I once made dinner for a lady I was interested in. I made:

    *Salad with pears, walnuts and balsamic vinegar reduction
    *Lamb Osso Bucco
    *Risotto
    *Pears baked in wine/sugar reduction

    That lady is now Mrs. Nate.

    OK, any more questions?

    I need something unique or creative. Something that will be funny or bring a smile, etc. etc. It canít be ďtoo muchĒ right now.
    This is spooky, did you post the exact same question on the Rivals Indiana board?? If you didn't then someone else is having the same dilema as you are.

    It might be a little pricey but seasons 1-11 of South Park on DVD seems like a fantastic gift to me.

    Show up in a pink bunny suit like Johnny Drama with the case of Natty Light and the wax worms. You should soon have an idea where you stand with the lady.

    And if that goes off, please PM me with the details.

    Or balloons. Balloons are always good.
    Or candlesticks, candlesticks are always nice.

    Just be careful how you use them. They bend if they spend a lot of time at body temperature.

    How did it go this weekend Griffeyfan
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
