My dishes. LP likes to say, "We don't have any fine china, it's more like Bangledesh." When we got married it was, uh, how you say, a SHOTGUN wedding, ergo instead of a bridal shower we had a BABY shower. Thus, no registry, no fancy gifts, nada. So we got these fine dishes one year at Pennys on sale. And I like them. As for the cups, well, in this fine city I live in, the locals here have a tradition called the "Italianfest" where they block off Main street and it is wall to wall DRINKING. Each year you get your beers in these nice cups. They last about a year, so as you can see, the next Italianfest is on the 17th cuz it's time for some new cups!!! And believe you me, I will have no problem at all spending my hard earned money so we can have more cups. See, it's my JOB to make sure we have decent things to drink out of. My duty. And if it means I have to drink beer to get said cups, well, I guess I will just have to do it.
