    Woman at mall: HE WENT TO JARED!
    Woman's friend: At least he didn't make a gay scrapbook like MY husband ...

    I gave jewelry last Christmas, and on my salary I finished paying it off three months ago. I can't afford that kind of financial drain this year.

    And if scrapbooking (making a scrapbook) is gay, then just call me Boots.

    Call my wife. She'll have you in tears it will be so beautiful.
    She's putting together something career-related for me, now that she's made my sister blubber and my son tear up at graduation.
    You can be next.

    It doesn't have to be diamonds... You can get a great pair of earrings or a necklace for a few hundred....

    Oh, I forgot about these leeches.

    Each month, there are at least two "scrapbook parties." Don't be fooled by the word "party." It's no party, especially for you. It's a three-hour lecture on how to spend tons of sumbitchin' money on this shit by, of course, purchasing said shit from whoever's hosting the damn party. (When I say it's painful for you, I don't mean that you actually go to the party. It's the bill from the party that's painful for you.)

    I told my wife the other day: "Just once, I'd like to be on the receiving end of this shit and have these crazy women who have more money than they know what to do with write us a few checks."

    And moddy, if I need to borrow anything, it won't be scissors. Money to pay for these scissors, now that's a possibility.

    I'd rather have the Craftsman tool box than scrapbooking shit.

    Yes, I have put things into albums. Ticket stubs, press passes, etc. But I don't add stickers and little sayings and die-cut construction paper pieces. I think it's dopey and takes away from the intent.

    One would think I'd be into scrapbooking as an extension of loving page layout. I also can't walk past Michael's without spending some money. But for some reason I don't see a point to the hundreds/thousands of dollars that people spend on these scrapbooks. Buy a nice photo album or frame.

    Look, I bitch plenty about the cost of this shit, but I will admit that when she's finished with one of these books, they're very well done. We could've bought a nice used car for what it cost, but it's a nice looking book.

    And like I said, she enjoys it, we're not going hungry because of her scrapbooking habit, so I let it be. It's also not like the hobbies I toss gobs of money into are any better.

    Sounds like a healthy relationship.

    I have no doubt that when they're done right, they're really nice. But I've seen a lot of them done wrong or with stuff added to the page for the sake of adding stuff.

    I don't scrapbook, but I stamp. Just as expensive, but not as lasting. However, my Christmas cards are better than yours!

    PDB: Like I said, I spend a a little money myself. You got any idea what a good STD treatment costs these days?
