    I have the best girlfriend in the world. But I guess because I'm a man I messed things up. Yesterday I called her up and asked to meet her at the mall for some Chinese. She agrees and we make plans to meet. I figure seeing as im at the mall I can pick up my copy of Vanilla Sky that came out that day. So we meet at the Chinese place and I set my bag down at the table. She asks what it is and I tell her it’s Vanilla Sky. She gets this pissy look on her face. She then proceeds to tell me that I ruined all her plans, that day she was going to get my favorite chicken wings from a place that is 20 min out of her way and bring them to my house (she would have brought them to work, but I work on a military base and security would not have never let her in). Plus she was going to buy Vanilla Sky and surprise me with it today. I just can’t win. ;-)
    Although there is no HT at her house so I would be forced to watch the movie from the stero TV speakers. [​IMG]

    After 25 years of marriage this sounds like the time for "a dozen roses just because I love you" moment!

    Good luck!

    Allan,

    Reverse her plans and make special arrangements for her!

    Pick up a disc she would like (it especially looks good when you pick a title that she likes but you don't) take her out for dinner (or order in, whatever her favorite is) and VOILA! Allan is outta the dog house!

    Boy, I hate to imagine how you guys would have worked through this crisis without a thread at Home Theater Forum to guide you. [​IMG]

    Ever read "The gift of the Magi" by O Henry. You can pull up a synopsis on the web.

    Well, Allan, I don't think you ruined her day. Does she think you can read her mind? How were you supposed to know she wanted to buy you the movie? Women...

    I don't think I'm legally allowed to mention why my GF got the academy awards "Best Girlfriend" nod. But I will mention it involved a car-chase, a batman mask, a gallon-sized screwdriver (the drink, not the tool), and a mazda miata with no top. [​IMG]

    The next time she buys a new dress or whatever, act dejected and say "Hey! I was going to buy that for you." Men can do that too you know.

    I had a fit of nostalgia today so I decided to go back and look at the threads I started.

    I would like to change my statement about the for-mentioned girl. Not to shortly after the blessed chicken wings and DVD event did she turn into a total control freak, informing me she did not want me talking to my life long friends or if I even noticed another women walking by I got major bitched out. Needless to say she did't last long after that. The new title should read, "Just another girl with issues that I though was nice."

    That's a hell of an update.

    What lessons have you learned for next time?

    That there are other fish in the sea. Although I think my local pond is nothing but throwbacks.
