Does that make me a selfish parent? I would rather you find something to do with my kid than buy him crap anyway, if you want to acknowledge the him on the holiday.
No. As long as they know gifts don't fall from the sky (well, the ones not from Santa) and that adults like getting gifts FROM them, I think you're good.

I'm an online shopper for the most part and I h-a-t-e shopping at stores around Christmas, so I'd probably doing the same thing if I had kids.

LW2 - yeah, go in thirds (almost typed thrids after seeing matilda's correction). my SIL may take in roomies, a pal from one of her counseling groups adn 2 adult children. SIL said she'd go halfsies; we said no f'n way, go quarters, or ata minimum 1/3 - 2/3s. the sons are young adults; tehy'll be using more water, electricity, food, whatever, than a 10YO would.
SIL sooo needs the roomies. Even if hte landlord raises the rent to market rate (discounted now b/c the landlord is also her boss), if it's split even in half, SIL will be ahead.
but we're really encouraging her to split per person, not per family.

Speaking of herpes, I was listening to my second date update show today(for those who never heard me talk about it, girl goes on date with guy. has fun. wants second date. guy never calls. girl wonders what happened. Show calls to get teh scoop. and of course they don't tell guy she's on the line at the moment).

Girl calls. Says she has herpes. But met this dude on a dating site for people with herpes. So the awkwardness of when to tell is dispelled right away. Neither can do any damage to the other. So He's a chef. They make a date for him to come to her place and cook dinner. He shows up with no food. Don't recall the rest, but they end up doin it. And she has not heard from him a week later.

So they call him up and pitch the idea that someone is into him and if he's cool with it, they'll set them up on a date and pay for it. So they ask about this chick. Does he like her etc.

He confesses that, really, he just went out (or in actually) so he could nail her. They continue, and find out he does not even have herpes. Dude is of the mindset that there's a reason these girls got herpes: they're easy. Hosts then circle back to the part about him not even having herpes and are puzzled that he would put himself at risk like that. He said he double bagged it and knew she was on her meds, so he doesn't see it as a huge risk, but the nfllowed up with there's an element of risk in any sexual encounter.

I was speechless. I had no problem believing he as jhust in it for the sex, but actively seeking someon with herpes when you don't have it? WOW!

Also, double-bagging it is a bad idea. The two "bags" rub against each other and increase the chance of breaking. So he fails on multiple levels.

Also: Herpes isn't just about the P being in the V -- the entire genital area can transmit herpes. It's a skin thing, not just a body fluids thing.

That too. So unless he wore a hazmat suit specially designed for sex, he exposed himself. So to speak, heh.

What a psycho. Or he usually can't nail anyone. Maybe both.

Well, this woman and obviously others proved the guy right: They had sex on the first date. I don't know that these women should be so upset about this. If I wanted to date a guy again, I wouldn't sleep with him on the first date.

Wow. I'm speechless, too. I mean, I certainly get that there are some sex-desperate people out there (both men and women) and that there are people who are just in it for the mattress dance and not much else. I even have no trouble believing that there are people who lie and shmooze and manipulate just to get on someone's mattress for the dance. But to deliberately expose yourself to a permanent, non-curable STD like herpes, to get it on with someone knowing they have herpes? Seriously? Holy shizzbang. In that case, he gets what he deserves.

He's wrong on more than one level. He's okay risking his own health (and that of his future/other partners). He's treating women with herpes like they're easy (when all it takes to get herpes is sex with someone who has it, even in a committed, loving relationships).
