I bet that got his attention, Gutmutter!
Aww, don't feel too bad, misskitty. I've only known one man in my life that was a great gift getter. Some stupid gifts I've gotten from guys for birthdays/Christmas: a sponge to wash my car (ooo, but it matched the color of my car!), Tweety bird underwear (so not my style ), CD's that had obviously been opened and listened to for months, a bottle of liquor (I rarely drink)....the list goes on and on.
