ALF, who shot a man in Reno just to watch him die, blogged recently that EVERYONE should use gift registries, so we can buy gifts people actually like and will use.
Some people may have a problem with the practical, un-romantic nature of gift registries.
Those people are idiots.
Why do I say this?
Because for the past few days, my mother has been frantically calling and emailing, asking what to get the Sons for Christmas. 3 of the sons are Thinking. This takes a while. Which is making my mother crazy. She has no idea what to get, and doesn't like to wait until December to shop.
Son #1, however, created a Wish List at Hot Topic. And we emailed it to my mom. And she is buying him everything on his (admittedly short) list.
Son will be thrilled, come Christmas Day. My parents are ALREADY thrilled, because they are done shopping for him.
All hail the gift registry.
