I'm so glad I'm single and only have to deal with a concerned father.

Dad: " Why are you out here so late? (In garage)

Kaire: " Making room for my new cabinet <3 I found it on CL super cheap!"

Dad: " Well, don't stay up too late. Good night sweetheart"

The end. I just have to make sure the lawnmower is easily accessible and we're all good ;)

Maybe you're an exception Kaire, but I think after marriage and/or motherhood, Women go from attract mode ("enjoy" videogames, blowjobs, and shoes), to boss mode (truly enjoy order, antibac and more shoes).

Don't get married and don't have children to stay 'cool' . Got it! :lol:

But, really, I think it's kinda sad that the guys get guilt'd and reprimanded for their hobby. I'm curious, do you guys get all questiony when your girls buy stuff you don't like? Or are you cool about it?

I'd say I'm far more easy going but I guess my Ms is here to kick me up the ****. That's why she has so many expensive pointy shoes.

It's just a re-order of priorities. And money sadly always has to be high on the list. I'm just making fun of necessity really. Personally, if I was single, I'd probably be in the cheapest possible bedsit, happily working through every videogame I've ever wanted to play, on a strict diet of beans on toast, in bed, and still wearing the same boxer shorts since 1999. Sigh. :cry:

It's worth it really.

:lol:

I'm generally a lot more easy going than my mrs when it comes to buying stuff although the stuff I buy tends to be more pricey, take up more space and/or be more imposing. Admittedly I do find myself rolling my eyes when she buys a new pair of shoes.

"there's a box full of perfectly good ones in the garage, what do you need a new pair for?" :roll:

To be fair she's pretty accommodating and cuts me a lot of slack.

"What has it ordered again?!" (hands over a cardboard box)
"let me see that" (looks) "oh yeah this one, I swapped some games and had forgotten about this one as it took so long to send"
"aha"


edit: that was today... but here´s the big cab talk:

"What are you doing?!?"
(stops moving tables) "I was thinking, see I was thinking about maybe buying an arcade cabinet, you know the old kind of big gaming machine you would have seen in some gas stations, shops and such"
"What? Where would you fit such a thing?!"
"Right here (in my mancave) I was thinking about moving that table there and this table over here and you would get this bookshelf... "
"..." (stomps foot)
"also yeah, you would get that new dishwasher"
"Okay"

Now that, I think, went amazingly well.

Due to an imminent house move I stored my two cabs at my parents with the plan to escalate things in bearable amounts. I started with the Cute on a day when she was away. Due the small size (well, when she asked how big a cab was beforehand I showed her a two player Scud Racing...) and the girlish colour she actually called it "cute" (as cute as manly means of escapism can be to woman) and was OK with it. Half a year later I´m still think of ways to smuggle the unchopped Naomi in...

The only comment I've gotten from my gf is that I should wait until we get to Japan to buy more games. We live in a 3 room flat, 1 of the rooms is a dedicated gamingroom. So I think I'm in a very good spot compared to some of the other guys on here =) , Now if I could just find a pinballmachine to place in the livingroom...

"you can buy those games on our trip to tokyo" ...

I heart that sentence several times too.
Still, pretty sure there a catch ... somewhere ... :eh:
maybe the catch is, that there will be no money left for pcbs then.

some days ago:

*phone rings*
Hi! - Hi!
"You got a big **** parcel today. What is it? Did we talk about it?"
"Yes. Very short"
"What is it?"
"You know ... The stool .... I showed it to you online ... the one you did not like ... :shifty: "


:roll:

[+] Spoiler...

*while unboxing*
"Oh, by the way, .... it's two of them. :shifty:"
[+] Spoiler...
after repeating why she does not like them, she sat down and kept sitting for several hours, later explaining to me that she wants the same stool for herself too. but with rollers. :P
Randy and Candy.
currently lazy. must not buy games!

They're massively practical as temporary seating/footstools.

Yeah, my Japanese stools are great to have around. I used one while decorating the toilet the other day. :shifty:

...Erm, when I say "decorating the toilet", I mean painting the room, not pebbledashing the basin.

:lol:

I'm currently forming a 'put the cab in the lounge' strategy. It involves the element of surprise, plastering, skirting, architrave, and tactical placement of new sofas. I hope to confuse the opposition with a renovation skirmish.

You were asking for trouble...

"Darling, have you ever played 'magical drop'? First you close your eyes and open your mouth..."
