Jon,
first, i wasn't in that category, but what about the guys who may have gotten furniture for Christmas for the house. To the women, that's for both of us, but for us men, it just steals toy money Unless the "furniture" is the kind you sell, then it's okay. If it's $6k in just jewelry and stuff, man, I agree. Insane.....and I bet all of them on their girlfriend (read NYMPHO) or first wife. (Guys on the second wife or more probably are in the $1-$49 category...the low end LOL!) Or, they're working one hell of a trade off for something they want, and it BETTER be HUGE!

I won't know untill I get the VISA bill in the mail next month.
I should have never went to the mall and sat at the bar watching Monday night football handing over the card saying go buy yourself something special.

Got my wife an artist retreat and studio equipment. Building her a website for it at http://www.artfolio.com/ . Now she says I can have boaters come for rides in my batboat while their wives make pottery, sculpture, and other artwork at the retreat. We open right after the first of the year. Only bad part is we can see the ocean, but it takes about 45 minutes to get there. We got it in April, but it took until just this week to get it almost finished and the Christmas surprise was equipping the pottery studio. Should have done pictures of the progress like the boat rebuilds that are so cool to see.

Wife and I have an agreement, the Kids come first . They received a lot of neat things. Just seeing the look on their faces as they opened the gifts is worth a Million dollars to both of us .
