All I want to do is Register.

Think about it. If you are single, after graduation there isn't one occasion where people celebrate you ... Hallmark doesn't make a "congratulations, you didn't marry the wrong guy" card. And where's the flatware for going on vacation alone? Carrie-Sex and the City

Apparently, Sex and the City quotes are the only quotes that work for me lately. Back in the days where I didn't have a blog, very sad days because I LOVE blogging, I wrote a guest post for BFF Miss football. about said topic I am going to write about now. I figure that it's a good time do write one and since I haven't written one on le blog before...why not now?? Especially since I am in the middle of baby mania.

I am extremely ecstatic, over joyed, delighted, thrilled and whatever other word you want to add in there for all my friends who are engaged, getting married, having a baby, having a second, third, fourth baby, adopting a new dog, buying a new house, getting a new job, sitting on their ass, I don't know...whatever is...I am happy for you.

I just don't want to have to buy you any more gifts.

I can't.

In case you haven't noticed that you haven't bought me any gifts lately, it's because I am SINGLE. I have one bank account and it's very empty because of the five hundred gifts I am having to buy. have to be an heiress to afford everything.

Do not get me wrong, I wouldn't buy anyone anything if I didn't want to, I love to buy these new babies that are coming into the world a gift. But, why do they all have to be coming at the same time?? One at a time people, I can't handle it.

I have five new babies I have to buy for, that's five baby showers in a matter of two account is yelling at me right now.

I just hope that when I get married and I get to finally take that magical little gun that just scans whatever item it is that I wish for, they remember the gift(s) that I got them.

Am I sounding selfish? spoiled?

I hope not, I am just a lonely little single gal who only wishes to be able to scan items for other people to buy.

I have issues with this, why do we only celebrate these occasions? What about when people graduate from college, that should at least call for a register at pottery have to outfit your newly post-graduate house you know.

What about when you turn a milestone age? Like 25? I told everyone I was going to register for my 25th birthday, because it's a big day...I didn't though. Then I said I would for my 26th birthday last year, because it was my "Golden" birthday....still didn't register. Maybe for my 27th?

Btw, my birthday is August 26.

Just so you know : )

hear, hear! If I bought for all the babies in my life over the past 18 months, that would be almost thirty (yes, 30) baby gifts. Plus the nine weddings. And the associated bridal showers. Since I don't want children and am not 100% certain I need a wedding, I kinda feel like I shouldn't have to buy gifts for those occasions... acceptable?
