I Heart Presents

valentines_treats, originally uploaded by Klick Here.

Valentine's Day is next month. Because I love online shopping, I have been on a hunt for a great gift for Dan. We had agreed not to exchange gifts, and then he told me that he had already purchased a gift before we made the agreement. Thus, voiding our verbal contract. I should sue.
So I began my hunt last night. I am pretty proud of my ability to find The Perfect Gift for someone within 24 hours of beginning my search. My husband's gifts always seem to thwart me though. I was super proud of my Christmas gift ideas, but those took me months to figure out. And Valentine's Day, well, I'm starting with less than a month til the holiday. This does not seem like it will have a happy ending.
He called me just a few minutes ago...

Dan: I thought of two great gift ideas for Valentine's Day that you could get me!
Me: OK. What are they?
Dan: They just re-released Final Fantasy 2&3 for the Sony PSP.
Me: ...I don't think you understand the meaning of the term "great idea."
Dan: But those are games I would never go out and buy myself!
Me: *sigh* OK, what's the 2nd great idea?
Dan: Those were both of them.
Me: You can't count two games in the same series and two different gift ideas. That's cheating.

So, I'm kinda back to square one. I bought him the PSP as his Christmas gift and I don't want to buy him additional games as a Valentine's Day gift. How romantic would those be anyway? Here sweetie, have some more items to help encourage your addiction to video games. Please, ignore me and any homework you may have and instead, pretend to be a large sword-weilding superhero who saves bikini-wearing princesses from frog mutants. Kissy kissy!

I'm filled with loathing at the thought of video games. Robert had a bass fishing hand-held-connected-to-the-TV-with-a-cord video game for about a week. He mastered it on day three and it broke (thank God ) on day seven.

Perhaps Mr. Klick needs a sexy manthong or something...furlined...that could be a bit warmish for Phoenix though.

By the way, I've got a new leaf necklace made and listed in the shop...but you'd better get there quick. I don't know how long it's going to hang around for.

PS Those little treats look very sweet and tasty.
