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.

Your commitment to your family having dishes is truly moving, Vajana. The world needs more people like you in it. ;)

A woman who is willing to sacrific in the name of fine drinking glasses...I like to hear that! ;)

If I were smarter I too would replace all of our glassware with plastic. Give my kids and the tile floor time, we'll get there.

Hey, I graduated in '95...alright, now I have to wait to hear if your response is something like, "Damn, I was still in junior high!" wherein I will then have to drink myself into a stupor and piss and moan about how old I am...
