Are they kidding?

While watching a Tivo'ed Monster Jam show, I saw a lame commercial that I couldn't help but blog about. Vermont Teddy Bear. In the commercial, a woman receives a Valentine teddy bear while at work. The other women come over to read the card and coo over the gift. In the meantime, all of the guys in the office are looking over their cubicles to see what's going on. Then one great actress asks where she can get a guy like that. All the guys hear this and pop back into their cubes to order them over the phone and online. I mean, seriously. Are guys that gullible?

If you're going to spend 80 bucks on a gift, get something thoughtful, something that would be appreciated. What is any grown woman going to do with a teddy bear? That would become a dog toy in my house.

Here are some tips for you guys searching for Valentine's Days gifts - 'cuz you and I both know you haven't planned anything or purchased anything yet. ;) Jewelry is always good, chocolate works too, but not as the only gift. To get something your girl would really appreciate, think. What does she like to do? What has she hinted about? (Every girl hints about things, it's just a matter or whether A) you're paying attention, or B) you remember if you did catch the hint. What's even more special is if you do remember something she mentioned from 6 months ago. Then she thinks you *are* paying attention, that you care enough to want to please her. it's really quite simple if you think about it. :)

Now I'm going to finish watching Monster Jam...Yes I'm a girl!
