Birthday Boy Blues

It’s that time of year again- stress, anguish, anxiety and confusion. It can only mean one thing: September and therefore B’s birthday.

Why do I have such a hard time getting him a gift? We’ve been dating for a few years now (and living together for 1), so you think it would just get easier. But it doesn’t! Each year, with each gift I give, it narrows down the possibility for other gifts. I go around my office, asking suggestions. I ask my mom. I ask HIS mom! I google “Perfect birthday gift for boyfriend who likes cigars but already has a humidor and likes alcohol but isn’t an alcoholic, is in law school but doesn’t like law TV shows, etc.” But didn’t get much from that search. I even tweeted about it and didn’t get too many responses!

I mean if 130something people follow me and only 2 people have suggestions, it’s not just me that thinks it is difficult!

So, with B’s birthday being this weekend…anyone have any ideas?

More Free Food!

Again with the free stuff- seriously I cannot get enough of it. This time, however, it’s sandwiches..and not just any sandwich – Dave’s Cosmic Subs!
