What would be a good gift for Jenn's birthday?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : like sands : One Thread

So, I've been hunting for a gift for Jenn because I think her birthday is coming up, sometime soon, well I'm interested in what you think I should get her and I also want you to know that I'm the run on sentence master.

No, really, I am interested in what you think I should get Jenn. If you're wondering who I am, I'm that dorky Phil kid that Jenn sometimes mentions. The one that nods off during concerts. Yeah.

Anyway, I've made a point up to now of not involving myself in Jenn's online community, cause I met her not-through-the-net and I'd like our hanging out to be real-not-virtual and gosh-aint-it-fun-to-hyphenate-everything? But I decided I like these message boards, and they are wacky anyhow, and I'm in a weird, very tired mood. But be warned--replies to the email address I'm using go straight to the trash--I'll never see them. E-mail is work for me, I get tired of it. but reply here, it'll be fun.

And think of the suspense involved! Someone can start a new thread that says 'what is that dorky phil kid going to get Jenn for her birthday'?

Sorry, no pets are allowed in my building!

Also, you may find this hard to believe, but I'm actually allergic to rodents. I have to wear a mask when I work with the mice.

Well, I guess Plan B suggestion is out then:

Some variation on on her age, one for every year: roses, lottery tickets, candles, MB of ram, gigs of hard drive space, whatever. Depending on the strength of your stock portfolio.

dear phil,

i personally love to get a nice box full of bath salts and/or oil, a good body lotion or other after-immersion emoillient, an engrossing bathtub novel or better yet subscription to a supertrashy magazine like Vanity Fair, maybe a new back brush or other such thing. I think this kind of goody basket goes over well with most women. A trip to the Origins store (or web site) should do the trick: they make this amazing rosemary sea salt scrub in a jar (that Mom likes, actually) and have good lotions and bath/shower implements. Or try Sephora: Stila makes lip gloss colors that would look good on Jen, some in this cool pencil container with a brush and others in these little metallic tubes like watercolors, and really, girls are crazy about a good lip gloss. love, g p.s. you're not that dorky, just

This is the great thing about the internet. My older sister can give me advice from afar. Probably cause I never get her birthday gifts.

Colin: thanks for the advice.

I lose track of how old Jenn is, ( I lose track of how old I am!) so this might be tough. We're either the same age, or a year apart.

Candles--candles are good, but not quite right. I'd get her a domain name, if you guys would come up with some better ideas...

She might enjoy the lottery tickets actually--in a round-about way. If you've ever heard Jenn rant about how stupid people are who buy lottery tickets, you probably wouldn't buy them for her. OTOH, she might get a kick out of the story--'Hey did I ever tell ya about the time that dorky Phil kid bought me lottery tickets? Hahaha.'


Just kidding of course. But a good, new story to tell--that's a great gift.

Well, Phil, at least now you know what to get Grace for HER birthday! No excuses now!

I still like the hamster idea. Doesn't Rob Rummel-Hudson have an old one he isn't using anymore?

Hamster idea is okay. But for the sake of her allergies, after the taxidermist is done with it, get it laminated.

I personally would get her the whole Hamster family. Mother Hamster sitting on the eggs in her nest of rose bush twigs, with Father Hamster facing off Hamsters worse enemy, The Mongoose.

the problem is not not knowing what to get grace for her birthday.

What is that supposed to mean?.....................................

Maybe this message thread should have been titled "Phil and Grace Air Their Grievances".

I hope you've bought her something by now. Let us know!
