My Christmas Gift

[Alternate Title:  How I Moaned and Groaned, Bitched and Whined Until Vol Fan Went Shopping]
About a week before Christmas, I asked Vol Fan if he wanted to open his Christmas presents.  I have a hard time waiting. 
He said, “Presents?  We weren’t supposed to get presents.”
In a very innocent voice, I said, “Uh – I must have missed that memo.”
He said, “So I am supposed to buy you a present?  But I bought you a house!”
In a very innocent and sweet and loving voice, I said, “Uh, yeah!  How long have you known me?  Pfft!  Are you supposed to buy me a present?!?  What kind of silly question is that?…….”
So on Christmas Eve eve, Vol Fan went shopping with his brother, Harley Rider.  I honestly did not know they were shopping.  Every time I called, they were at Hooters!!
But they really were shopping (between Hooter visits!) and they were shopping for bling!  Vol Fan doesn’t buy bling very often (I’m not much of a bling type of girl!) but when he does, he buys VERY nice bling.  And nothing was meeting his high standards.
So on Christmas Eve morning, Vol Fan said, “I really need some help.  I need a list or something.”
I gave him a list of a couple of camera things for him to choose from and I gave him T’s number, just in case he needed advice. [PS – Thanks for all your help, T!!] 
Vol Fan went all out!  I am having SO much fun playing with my new lens.  And seriously, my flash is bad ass!!

What I have observed over the years is that...

Women can't do a thing
Without some bling

hahah Love VE's comment and I totally agree!!

Why do men ask that question? So I have to buy you a present? Well, DUH! But it looks like VolFan did good :)

It was my pleasure my friend!

And who says camera gear isn't bling? Maybe not bling for your body - but what he bought you certianly is bling for your camera!

GREAT bokah in this shot!

Very nice! I love how you focused on that one part of that photo.

I got what I asked for, then went out and bought my own bling...my iphone and new wireless printer that I can't figure out how to make wireless.

Yeah. I'm jealous. They don't make extra lenses for crappy digital cameras, do they? Didn't think so.
